  1. That’s a shame, in my context it seems like such an obvious requirement. Oh well is what it is. A let down none the less!
  2. Hey Guys, I’m trying to fit the chairs under the table so that on the right side you would see the back of the chair and the back legs, but the rest would be under the table. But it seems that whilst I can move these layers around to be visible, with the rest showing below the table as soon as I group the chair the layering is no longer respected. I really need the chairs grouped so I can easily move them around. I hope I’m being clear with what I’m trying to achieve. Any ideas on how to have a chair that is grouped but with the layering showing correctly Conf Room.afdesign
  3. Thank you both! Will explore both options! If HDR aligns images like stacking, it could be ideal!
  4. Hi All, Sorry for real NOOB question! If you have 2 pictures, say of a room with a window and bright light coming in from the window. If you take 2 photos, one with exposure set outside the window to correctly expose light, and the other with exposure set within the room to of course correctly expose the room, how would you merge the two pictures to get the best of both exposures? Add in that whilst almost identical pictures there is some probable very slight alignment issues as pictures not taken on a tripod. I know there are potentially a few ways to do this! Just not quite sure how! *edit* so I’ve seen stacking, looks ideal as it aligns images, can you then just mask the area you want to work on, which in my case would ideally just be the windows as they would be a smaller area to work on, so that dark room, correctly exposed outside world would be the second layer, and I’d just bring that area to the forefront, in my head I’d be erasing the primary layer to reveal the secondary layer. Is this possible or (another method) when using stacking?
  5. Not sure if it’s the new update, but been having various issues. I running on iPad Pro 2020 iOS 13.4.1. From the video below you can see that the white brush circle that normally shows when you size the brush just shows every time I touch the brush to the screen, I’m swiping all over the screen and it just keeps showing up. Earlier I had an issue where didn’t matter what size I changed the brush to, the circle stayed real small even when the brush was like 2000px. Pretty basic stuff not working here! IMG_0138.MP4
  6. Interestingly even with a new file and just creating a rectangle as you did, I still get the same results! IMG_0027.MP4
  7. First off, thanks for sticking with me. So now sure I’m following instructions! See attached video. Deffo selected the layer now! Now when I cut the whole image disappears! What am I doing wrong? IMG_0026.MP4
  8. So close, behaviour almost the same, but when i have reslected the original selection and change to the photo persona to cut, it does not actually cut as it does in your video? Hopefully my video shows this. Sorry to be a pain! IMG_0024.MP4
  9. Thank you SO much really really helpful!!! Really appreciated!!
  10. Hey, Really appreciate your help. Following exactly (I believe) what you have said, once I've created a new layer for one half I do as you say and return to the original layer, when you say delete selection i'm not sure what you mean. The orginal layer is of course the full image, the new layer is the half image. The selection mask I drew originally is no longer there when I return to the original image. The best I can do at the moment as I must be missing something is move the new layer away so I an see it, then as best as possible draw out a new selection on the original image trying to be as accurate as possible, then go through your first steps to create a 3rd layer (the other half) when I then put the 2 new layers together they are not that accurate but in this instance will do. So I think I'm missing something at the ''Return to original layer, delete selection (gets other half)'' step!! Sorry to be dumb!!
  11. Also can’t wait, but yeah, nothing more than this year!
  12. Hey guys, not sure if that title is right. I’ve attached a couple of images. Basically just trying to in affect cut the image In half and end up with 2 halves that I can the manipulate. At the moment on the second file I can only then move / manipulate the left hand side in the new mask. Hope that makes sense!?!? Sorry still a newb! thanks for any help! virus 1.afphoto virus 2.afphoto
  13. Thanks guys, will have to ask in design user to do this as I've been given .indd files
  14. Hey All, I thought Publisher was now able to open .indd files? Am I wrong? Are there multiple caveats to this? When I try and open it says unsupported file type. Cheers, Karl
  15. Hey Guys, So I can draw a rectangle for instance, and and edit the fill colour and opacity as I’d expect. However as soon as I add a distortion to the rectangle, whilst still selected, I can no longer edit the colour or opacity. The layer was a pixel layer before the perspective distortion and is a pixel layer after. It’s really frustrating and I can see no valid reason for it. Any ideas? Is this a bug?
  16. Hi, thanks for replying. Yep I did end up breaking everything up in illustrator, but I’m actually lucky to have a subscription at the moment which I soon won’t have, also kind of defeats the object just wanting to use affinity designer a little I suppose!
  17. Thanks for the response, yep you can actually un group, I do think I fully explored this. When I then tried to drag a selection box around say just one asset, it appears to select everything, but actually you can move what you’ve selected as well as few other layers selected by mistake, so not ideal, but certainly workable, thanks!
  18. Hey Guys, I know designer can open .eps files. See the attached one. Problem is when i open this in designer on my ipad, everything is grouped and I can't ungroup. if opened in illustrator each of the assets can easily be manipulated as they are individually selectable. But in designer the file is pretty much useless. Am I doing something stupidly wrong? Cheers, 1_UmVhbGlzdGlj.eps
  19. thanks chaps for the feedback!! Got this working both ways!! Same outcome either way, the one I wanted
  20. Thank you so much!!! That is indeed way easier!! I also just managed to figure the other way out though, I was about to re-post. All I had to do for some odd reason is convert the pic to a .jpg rather than affinity photo format. Then it worked. Odd it does not work in the native format!!
  21. ok so it turns out I need to export that pic to a jpg first, then it works. Why is that? seems odd it does not work from an actual photo file!?!?
  22. Hi Guys, I've followed a number of videos and just can't get perspective mapping to work. I simply want to add a picture into the screen of the laptop (file attached) I go to projections and add a perspective projection, I map it to the screen. Then I click on the hand icon (have also clicked on arrow icon, no difference) I then place a picture, (at this point I only see the picture) I then merge down, click back on perspective projection (also just simply cleared projection at this point again no difference) and I basically seem to have to completely different images. They both show as pixel layers. Most of the time once I've placed the new picture, I can't even get back to the laptop image. In layers for the picture I've just inserted I can't see the laptop!! Can anyone help? laptop.afphoto
  23. Sorry I did'nt record it in the video, but I have every other time merged the picture down before the final step of clearing projection. Makes no difference to the outcome!
  24. Hi Guys, Hope someone is still active here. I can't get this to work at all, I'm sure I must be doing something wrong of course, hopefully I've attached a video as well as the image I'm trying to work on. I just want to be able to add a picture to fit within the laptop screen! laptop.afphoto RPReplay_Final1571690451.MP4
  25. Hey Guys, Would it be possible to allow aligning by guide lines per chance. My use case is that I wanted to perfectly align an object between to guide lines, but currently of course that does not appear to be an option. Cheers,
