  1. Have you tried this? I have the same problem with a project which is only a 1 Background, 2 Text with a gradient, 3 a horizontal row with some glow/blur. export as EPS or PDF and try work with that?
  2. Hi guys! Didn't find anything when I searched or perhaps I used the wrong search terms! But anyhow, I've previously done UI elements in Designer and Photo for mobile app mockups that has been my ideas. I'm now gonna be the guy who creates the UI for app (iOS and For phones: I understand that either the size I pick what's in the artboard is the screen and nothing else, so anything off the artboard will not show up and it'll be the actual screen sizes of the phones I can choose from. When doing for iOS and Android and all different kind of models - are the sizes adaptable and what should I go for when doing the UI for a mobile? 2 or more versions for each size? Or will this be fixed inside the phone? For web: Is there a fixed/normal size that will work for every page? and the programmer will just use this for the web design? I am thinking that when I open Designer and go with a template, will this "work on any computer screen" or is there something I should be aware of before doing the design? Web has 17 presets I can choose from with different kind of page dimensions. So, what will happen with let's say top header bar with all navigation buttons and names etc? Oh yes, and what is the preffed export files? PNG's for all icons and buttons or a .PSD or SVG? or something similar? Any tutorial I have missed or any rules of thumbs here? Any help is much appreciated! I'm working on a 27" iMac retina. Kindest regards!
  3. Same here! Is there a way to...yeah get it to work? : ) Ok saw now in AppStore on my Mac I need to update some stuff will try and get back asap
  4. +1 for .indd But WOW this PDF-TRICK is A M A Z E B * L L Z ! Found a UX talente program I wanted to apply for and had a total blackout on what to design ... and now I got an awesome idea and just that I knew that "Oh, I have to go back to Adobe Indesign for updating my portfolio...crap". Tried the PDF import from my current portfolio and...voila! I think it works 95% efficient and I'm so glad Affinity Publisher is out - Adobe stuff is a total PITA, I mean what's up with Indesign?!?! Thanks guys I hype your products to everyone in my network and I'm so glad I found you.
  5. Hey man alright thanks a lot! So normally it would be iPad Air 2 and above for the average iPad photo/designer app out there? Worried that I needed an iPad Pro to be able to use drawing programs such as AP or Graphic for example...we'll see! About my exporting options, if I use the same size on the paper in the iPad app I'm normally using for my AD designs that would be chill but....to be able to edit the design I've done in the iPad it is best if I export it and email it as an .svg file or something ... there, I was curious on what file formats Affinity Designer (the program I use on my computer) would handle from 3rd party apps.
  6. Hi there! A little new to iPad and Affinity, read something that some iPad versions (I think I have a kind of new iPad but maybe 3-4 years old) do not support Affinity Photo/Designer? I was thinking of making my own font but it doesn't always get a good output when I finish it and scan my font and upload it to the font services. That's why I wanted to either: 1) Buy a pen tablet and sketch my text and write directly into Affinity Designer. 2) Draw the text on a paper - make a photo with my iPhone, email it to my mail, open up the jpeg in AD and use the pen tool to re-make the text 3) Try an iPad app that works, draw the text (maybe the format will be better and easier when I open the file in AD) and it's there to be edited (color, size etc). Just need to be sure which file formats Affinity Designer can handle. Option 2 seems a little time consuming tho ... I was looking at Graphic and Vectornator but also gonna research these ones: https://www.howtoisolve.com/best-ipad-pro-drawing-apps/ Anyone else with some experiences or what would be the best option for Affinity Designer? I'm doing 80s synthwave/retrowave art and would like to do some of my own texts. Perhaps I can do my own font easier with this method too?? Best
  7. Thanks for all the tips and recommendations!! Did a little something just for trying stuff out and, pretty satisfied. Getting there at least! Had a little problem with the Stroke and how to add it, sometimes it is "there" next to Fill and Stroke options but a little more difficult when having a Text Then Stroke is ----> to the left in the "color" menu where you switch to brushes etc. Could this be moved to the "main screen" for Stroke adjustments? It would be really nice if the Stroke color (I chose gradient) from white to blue could be changed or edited just like adding a gradient to a text/symbol and you get the marker with the dots that you can mix inside the stroke , although I will try and mix with the 4 different gradient tools if I can get similar results. Here's my result:
  8. Hey MEB! Thanks for reaching out and for your great feedback! About the marking thing, I think I'm just gonna do a stroke and have some gradient color in that for now or just use a single color for the outer + inner glows and change the blend mode (overlay, screen) so it fits. Maybe this is better? Oh, thx!! I mean...I asked about the pixel thing because of the selection tool+fill it with a gradient. I am although not that good to decide where to have my cut selections so maybe it's just easier to go with the above. Thx for the feedback on the lense flare/star thing - I am not 100% confident on how to do it, but I will read your comment a couple of times and see if I can figure it out, kind of new on AD still : ) Oh, so vector tools/designs should be better for 80s artwork? I first thought pixel based texts looks more "noisier" when adding color gradings and what's making them retro, but the 2 videos and another one showed that he's changing the blending mode on the text or on the fx's like inner+outer glow plus something more...and that made the text look "older". Also some guy used some photocopy textures and added them in the design and it looked a little bit "old" and "worn" kind of bleached ... So maybe it's all in the effects?? Wanna obtain these kinds of styles with the "oldness" like Tim Waves, Kenzo Art and Over Glow: https://mir-s3-cdn-cf.behance.net/project_modules/fs/68380360155007.5a3e708a019a2.jpg https://blog.spoongraphics.co.uk/articles/showcase-rad-retro-designs-80s-style-chrome-text-effects Anything that comes in mind effect-wise in AD I can trix n fix with?
  9. Hey MEB! Thanks a lot. I'm currently in Designer, I posted a question in another similar thread. But I can type it here too, when I try to use that in AD (pixel persona) I chose the polygonal for example, holding shift for straight lines. When I finally have my selection I want to put a color gradient inside that (dark to light) for example but I cannot fix it. I can make the selection, but what options do I have? Trying to switch back to AD start mode/start persona and I'm stuck. I want to do what this guy do: https://youtu.be/7QIhg4Xgttc?t=2m25s (original link to thread: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/52586-ad-whats-the-name-of-this-tool-and-is-there-one-in-ad/#comment-265827 )
  10. Another question, I tried to use the Freehand Selection tool in AD's pixel persona (like polygon/lasso tool) to select an area because I wanted to add a gradient to that. Did not work. Like the guy in the first link: https://youtu.be/7QIhg4Xgttc?t=2m25s He was doing a selection and then filled the selection with a color gradient. Why doesn't it work in AD? Also I found this video on AP... is there something I need to do in AD after I made the selection to be able to edit it? Here's the AP tutorial on Vimeo:https://vimeo.com/194652359 Best regards
  11. Hey man I totally missed this update!! Thanks a BUNCH! That will indeed help me with the stuff I want to achieve! Thanks a million! regarding photoshop's lasso tool/polygon tool, is there a similar one in AP? @R C-R Best
