  1. SOLVED. Found out that almost all stuff was inside of Photo. I'm a just gonna get it Thx again for great products. Switched back to Photoshop today for some fun, but meh, I'm an Affinity guy now!
  2. Hey man! Thanks a lot! A yes haha, it was me who asked about the neon stuff. This time I just posted the examples as reference photos with the "feel". I will have a better look and look at tut1 and see what I can do in Designer. I wasn't at my computer when I wrote this so I couldn't see all the AD features although they are in the list at the website of what's included. I really think I have been accelerating in the learning curve but still a beginner like you said "where do I find that tool.." or more "is there a way I could do this..." Which is fun, I like to learn new things! But ok, I will see where Color balance, Brightness/contrast and Curves are in Designer and play around with it. I actually made a thread in Questions forum, dunno if I was correct with this first one and the link is there, super kind of you to answer here! Really appreciated it
  3. This was really cool! I am thinking of buying a pen stylus (XP Pen Star 03) but when I saw this... I was thinking of, why not just draw on paper, scan it or photograph it and send it to my email and then drag it in Affinity Designer and use the pen tool?? I am thinking of making my own fonts,but these need to be scanned...but if I sketch my art on a paper and just take a photo of it and import it to AD that's maybe even easier..but I have to deal with the pen tool a little bit, but maybe easier to paint on paper and add it to AD later ... hmmm ... Haha! Any ideas?
  4. Cool video, thanks for this! Did you use a pen tablet / stylus when drawing that or your mouse? Thinking of buying a stylus from XP-pen Star 03. Cheers!
  5. Hey man!! Thank you so much for your answer!! Oh okay, nice!!! I found this video too, also Affinity Photo but I guess I can do this in Designer then? https://youtu.be/xuok7X_6nNw I am little confused with the "extras" that people do in Photoshop, if it's possible with picture manipulating in Designer, or if These functions are only limited to Photo? Let's take this video when he's cutting stuff from pictures and "gluing" stuff with the brushes ... are those things cool with Designer? They have a pixel persona in it but I haven't figured that out yet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04ZgMiir4FM&list=PLswCb226hIFcpWvuRdY9NApe-SVTUZJot&index=34 It's a long playlist but, this video in the bottom, the video before it and the 1st video in the playlist describes this best I think! If you know what I mean with blending objects in! Basically these things I need to have first of all: Color balance, Brightness / contrast, Properties: curves. Thanks!
  6. Hi! I am super fascinated bout the matte kind of paintings and landscapes people are drawing. I have some friends but all of them use Photoshop. I also posted in the Tutorial room but dunno if it's right so I post here too if it belongs to this forum better. I found this tutorial on youtube for Photo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3-8M_ruzUM which is kind of similar but to a very basic level of what I wanna do. Also this tutorial of color gradings is pretty cool: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNRMocZj0Ok https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_8r2Zruhl4My question is, is this possible in Affinity Designer or should I go with Affinity Photo for this ??? I am thinking about the new Update deal for Affinity Photo this November. Couldn't find any tutorials for Affinity Designer for these topics so...yeah. Are there any out there doing matte designs? Here are some JPEG's for more inspiration: https://f4.bcbits.com/img/a2474467156_16.jpg https://i.pinimg.com/originals/87/eb/8a/87eb8a3c341aa3299f627cf9271a4592.jpg https://f4.bcbits.com/img/a3658960107_10.jpg New matte design: https://wallpapers.wallhaven.cc/wallpapers/full/wallhaven-494873.jpg https://i.pinimg.com/originals/b9/00/6f/b9006f27d367d0f676c6645a089621dc.jpg - fire https://www.walldevil.com/wallpapers/w09/41788-axwell-eternal-sunshine-of-the-spotless-mind-angels-jelly-jellyfishes-lights-swings-pyramids-lighthouses-birds-space-spaceman-tokyo-mazes.jpg colors & shine https://i.pinimg.com/736x/0a/c2/49/0ac249151ca241c60f0ea1c79d301d17.jpg My kindest regards,

  8. Thank You so much for your answer! I read alot and researched and came up with This one from XP-PEN called XP-PEN Star 03: http://www.xp-pen.com/goods/show/id/9.html
  9. Now it actually W O R K E D when I changed to English US/American, pressed OK & restart. Restarted Affinity and it's there! Try that one instead of lets say Chinese hehe All good thanks MOD's for being up pretty late yesterday trying to solve this out. ps. Could the Affinity Photo pack also be available to Designer users?? That would be amazing!
  10. Hi! Mac: - AD user, but both the AD and AP free packs seems really cool and I would really need the skies and all the stuff the AP freebies comes with. - Fixed and added AD to the Firewall exception - No CLAIM link whatsoever when I start AD. - Have bought the workbook from the website and I have the account and I see my WB order - Still no extra freebies for download. ... //D
  11. Hi man! Thanks a lot, ok then I know! ps. found a tutorial and explanation of the "metallic" thing I was looking for it was called Stroke, adding this to a text! problem solved! but ok ...I thought there were smoe way to "crop out" some things from an image and remove the background.
  12. Hi! Maybe there's a tutorial but haven't found it. This guy copied a picture of an old PLAY text from a picture like an old VCR but you get the whole screen/picture and in Photoshop he kind of crops the PLAY text and get rid of the background. I am working with stars/optical flares and want to "crop out" images from other images but when they are copied into my designs there's this background left still when I change the blend mode you can see that it's a small optical flare inside a pic and yeah, you get me. Is there a way to just "select" let's say the play button here like he's showing in Affinity Designer? So I only "save" the text/flare/symbol? And 2, is there a way I can "lighten up" things with colors in Affinity Designer like in the 2nd video? Kindest regards, https://youtu.be/LL_sIIO8Kj0?t=9m27s https://youtu.be/xEQxEmpfFL0?t=2m6s I really want this text to stand out more in the picture and make it like a shiny theme, and I don't know how to make it look like a "glassy" text, I need it to look more "metallic" like a plate or so! Attach a pic of my design!
  13. Hi there! Thanks for a great review hehe! I am planning buying a pen tablet/graphic tablet to my drawings. I was thinking of DRAW or ART. 1) It says that the DRAW does not include any "smart gestures" like zoom in+out etc. How do you manage this when you are working in Designer? Are the buttons on top cool? I think they are pretty ok! 2) How is the ArtRage app? It looks cool! 3) How is the size of it - reasonable? Seems that the Draw only comes in small or does it come in Medium too?? Do you still recommend DRAW without the smart functions or should I go for Art or another one instead? How do you like it so far - and @seanwholland how do You like it? All the best!
  14. Something like this in Designer would have been great!
  15. ps. Another user did another tutorial, but in Affinity Photo! A great one too I must say! What heroes there are out there! Cannot wait til Affinity Designer will get the perspective tool ... maybe there's a way to do a grid yourself and just "stretch it out" somehow. Anyhow Isabel's trick is awesome, worth gold!!! Here is one from Carl Surry https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XuPP6L9hNyw&feature=youtu.be
