  1. Think I figured it out for the Mac to get a larger display for the 4k screen on a Mac. Font was way too small for me. so I went to System Preference on the dock, chose display, scaled and chose larger text the first and second choice gives you the best for working in the program. I have not had this issue in windows, but only for my new 4k Mac, but these steps fixed it. Working with Mac OS Catalina 10.15.6
  2. Plus, if you want the files to practice with this 25 minutes video, his link to his website only charged $1.75 he is also a wonderful instructor to learn from.
  3. Try Olivio Sarikas Youtube Video, he does this similar technique using a lion. He cuts the lion out, once lion is by himself, he opens up either stock photography or scanned in watercolors and puts it on the lion, then change the blend mode, you could add in the smudge tool to make the paints go in different directions, another tip I would look for photos or scan in acrylic paints since its thicker place the image over the cat photo and change the blend mode. The video is called Affinity Photo watercolor effect, I am guessing this is popular at the moment. Its for the last picture you posted
  4. There is a very helpful person/graphic designer on Youtube she also teaches on SkillShare by the name of East Coast Charm her Channel has a specific technique called Low Poly Design in Affinity Designer, she will show you in real time how to make shapes, and filled them in on a Penguin. It is free on Youtube, I have learned a lot from this Instructor and Isabel Arcama channel too, but you will see it in action so you won't be confused and if you asked them they will make a video for things you are confused about. I requested 6 videos and all were made to card making, patterns, symbols, assests
  5. Thank you! I was wondering why my selection brush in Affinity Photo and Designer would not work, and just selected add and now they both work! Thanks again
  6. Yes, I second this request, and a logical way to scale objects within the patterns without using the bitmap feature. Or a pattern tool would be great, I use the symbol tool, but it does not work great for seamless patterns. This is a must for a Surface Pattern Desgns. Thanks and glad to see that someone else does seamless patterns and need better options.
  7. Hello I use Affinity Designer and Photo everyday. I know a lot of people use this for various of reason, however I do a lot of pattern design in Affinity a design but would like to request a specific tool such as a resizing or scaling tool for your elements, or even like Illustrator . I am aware of the symbol tool but it’s not effective in resizing to creating you digital scrapbooking pattern paper and I have used the bitmap tool which is also ineffective. What most designers are looking for is a tool that works like the tool in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. It is called the offset tool o
  8. Another way since I love to work in traditional medium is to add a black layer mask, and use a brush tool and set the color to white, zoom in and paint what you want to keep, next select file, export and change the size if you want too, then export png, this will ensure you will export any work with a transparent background. I use it all the time to keep work by making elements, patterns and cards and uploading to society 6.
  9. I agree the pencil tool needs more refinement for free hand drawing and more smoothing and editing would be great, since I too use this for freehand sketching of patterns.
  10. Ok, I changed it to Lisa45, would that be ok, and thank you because I definitely don't want any spammers lol :)
  11. I know this post was in 2016, but I have digitally scrapbooked inside of Photoshop and Photoshop Elements for years, and I am excited to let all digital scrapbookers know that Yes you can certainly use Affinity Designer to digital scrapbook perfectly. You can open all your files to build your pages by using file place, add elements and pictures the same way, and use the beautiful text included in AD when done export to jpg and done or PSD, in addition something Elements does not do at all is spell check, yes AD spell checks as you type, and you can apply the shawdow effects to make elements l
