    DuctTape reacted to MEB in Q: new doc DPI   
    Hi TheFeralOne,
    The DPI is irrelevant when you work with images for web. Only the pixel dimensions matter so it defaults to 72 or 96 (the common values for Mac and Win).
    When working with print documents or layout/UI's for mobile devices the DPI does matter and its adjusted accordingly depending on the selected device.
    The document presets are just that, a set of pre-defined values for most common uses, you can still customise them if you want setting the fields below as you wish.

    Hi The FeralOne,
    No, not yet. We have a relatively small team which is already doing their best to fulfil users requests and add all planned features, but as you can guess by the number of requests it's simply not possible to address them all. Please bear with us while we continue improving the app.

    DuctTape reacted to kirk23 in Brush Manager ?   
    Brushes itself needs alot of improvements .  Old Draw soft had a nice feature of alternating picture fragments along curve brush.  Same as in Microsoft Design/ old Expression soft.   Was very cool feature.
    And for pixel brushes a super coll improvement over Photoshop ones would be an ability to do a brush stroke on several specified layers at the same time.  With specified dabs for each layer.  For  example one dab for "color"layer , other dub for "normal map" layer etc. 
    Maybe just same brushes  Corel Painter or Art rage  both have  painting extra  depth channel  beyond regular RGB+ alpha.  
    Would be nice to have a few  brushes making GPU particle simulations on the fly,   Something like  Rebelle or Expresii  , also depth/surface aware.
    Brushes that are "painting"  some real world phenomena : rust , color drips. scratches in proper places through automatic depth masking etc    and not just drop pixels on an artificial "layer". 
    All this is extremely necessary nowadays to be considered an innovation and be really competitive  IMO. 
    Then a cool brush manager would be nice too of course.

    DuctTape reacted to Henry Stahle in #affinityphotoillustration   
    So far... nine illustrations made using Affinity Photo (and a little Designer). They are to be found on my Instagram (henrystahle) and I am using #affinityphotoillustration to show they are basicly all bitmap illustrations. The latest are from my recent project, an interactive app for Android and iOS. Me as an illustrator + a coder (LUA + Corona) that also animates and such. In Affinity I can use the slicing function for exporting, that is a big thing, it makes the work work, and easy exporting... Happy for that.

    Hi, I just started a new hashtag on Instagram: #affinityphotoillustration. I decided to do that because I am working on a picture book / app starting to use Affinity Photo instead of Photoshop. I will show some of my illustrations, all bitmap, no vectors, done in AP. It would be nice to see more illustrators using AP presenting art under the same #affinityphotoillustration tag. To get to now about you, to learn how you use this software and to get inspired from each other. See you on Instagram!

    DuctTape reacted to retrograde in Brush Manager ?   
    Users need some sort of simple way to organize and save favourite brushes in their own panel. There are now hundreds of brushes, all in separate panels. It's becoming counter productive and I think some sort of system is needed to get the most out of all of these great resources.

    I have made 10 free tone mapping presets. I have not seen any tone mapping presets for affinity photo so I made some for anybody who might want them. Of course they will not all work with every photo like all presets but I hope someone finds them useful : ) To upload them just click on the zip. file, then in the tone mapping persona on the presets menu; click "Import Presets", Enjoy!

    DuctTape reacted to James Ritson in Malta 2017   
    Hey all, just wanted to share a few of the (many) photos I took during my holiday last week in Malta. We previously went to Malta in May of this year and liked it so much we went back! This time I brought some camera gear that I didn't chance taking last time, including a tripod, flash gun and portable light, so I was able to get some shots I would have previously struggled with.
    First up is a long exposure panorama of Valletta from Sliema Bay:

    Then, on our last night, having wound down and packed all my gear up, we were treated to one of Malta's occasional thunderstorms. I quickly unpacked and went up to the rooftop of the guest house to capture several long exposures, which I then composited into this:

    We also got a ferry across to Comino, which was absolutely packed with tourists. A short walk later to the more arid areas, however, and I saw some tiny lizards:

    Now, my partner is a bit of a poser (something she'll admit herself), but she doesn't usually like standing around to be photographed in the UK because it's quite cold. Give her some blistering heat, however, and she'll model all day!

    We ended up doing quite a few photoshoots (I've only edited two or three images so far):

    And finally for now, we visited the National Park which is an interesting little place in itself, but I discovered what seemed to be a disused rail yard across the road. I got a few photos of the area, but this one jumped out at me because of all the textures:

    Anyway, just wanted to share a few photos, I'll possibly add some more when I get around to editing them (there's quite a backlog...) - thanks for looking and hope they give you some ideas!

    Hello I am a huge fan of both affinity designer and photos, and own both of them! I just wanted to share some of the work that I have done using the new symbols tool in the Affinity Designer beta. When I got into sacred geometry mandala illustrations, I used smart layers inside photoshop. In the last month, I've recreated some of my past works and created new designs using the new betas.
    I'd love to thank all their development teams for creating such incredible and intuitive vector applications. You allow me to effortlessly create designs in Designer and quickly export them to Photos to add nice image/gradient masks and effects before submitting the final render.
    Here's some of the works I've created. I have them all on my Instagram as well (@garetmckinley).
