  1. I agree. There is a need to be able to easily categorize, move and sort brushes into our own hierarchy
  2. I am working on the Wine cellar. I have some good experience working with Designer but there are some new concepts here for me and I am struggling with the quality of the instructions. Specifically on page 245 discussing the overlapping ellipses and rectangles and using the subtract function. After trial and error I think I figured out which shape should be where in layers, but when it came to the divide and removal of unnecessary shapes I am not getting correct results. Simple step by step examples would help a lot. The earlier example making the barrel and referring back to info on page
  3. Thank you. All working good now.
  4. I am following one in the workbook that I purchased and on page 165 talked about importing a document pallet. But those options are not available on the iPad I assume this is just a desktop capability. Frustrating that I spent the money on the book and they do not have notes about differences in the iPad version.
  5. I recently got a new iPad air. I was successfully able to migrate all of my Designer files to the new iPad during setup process. I had to use my old iPad for a few new projects after setup of new iPad. I am now able to use my new iPad but cannot find the projects I created on the old iPad since my initial migration of files. Don’t these files just sync to the new iPad just like other files and photos would win connected to Wi-Fi? If not how can I get newly created files from my old iPad onto my new one?
  6. Would like better control on organization of brushes. Ability to create, combine, brushes to simplify when looking through options of brushes
  7. Does the book contain explanations for all of the icons that are found in the contextual menus? I’ve figured out many of them but the function of some are still a mystery to me. Second question is if differences with the iPad version are explained in the book as well. It looks like the project samples in the book are excellent learning sources thanks
  8. Where do I find the “nozzle 1.png” file to download? Says provided in resources, don’t know where to find this. Thanks
  9. I am having same problem. Must be bug in otherwise fantastic program.
  10. No reason to sugar coat your response. Didn’t realize how picture quality would degrade in upload. Sorry you needed a picture with better resolution before you could suggest ideas for helping me understand how to better blend tones of two dissimilar photos. Fortunately I had some time to play around with adjustments specifically Levels and HSL & I was able to do a very good job of blending the two photos. My suggestion to others dealing with this question is to use those adjustments with pre-selected areas of the photo(s) so you can isolate where those adjustments take place.
  11. Thanks for the help. Unfortunately, the PS solution brought up by the link didn’t provide information I could apply to my question in AP. The image I am attaching shows an upper layer with a head of much paler tones then the under layer showing the neck of person whose head I’m trying to replace. Want to be able to blend the upper head to match skin tones of neck (and rest of body) of lower layered person. I’ve looked at many tutorials (from frequency separation to blend modes) & have not been able to figure out yet. I hope I am just missing something obvious that someone can point out
  12. stokerg,

    Do you know the best way to blend skin tones from head/face of one person that I am trying to but on another body?

    Thanks again

      Can you please ask general questions like this in the questions forum, where others can benefit from the answer, and perhaps you would get an answer quicker than from the support team. Many users of these forums have professional experience and are willing to help others.

      Yes I will.


  13. stokerg,

    Thanks for reply.  I think my problem resulted from the Background image.  It was an image from internet that was somewhat pixilated itself.  I cleaned it up with paint brushes.  When I layered my text over this background image I think it assumed its pixilation.  Not sure if that's correct or possible but I was able to use the same text in other project without a problem.

  14. Trying to paste face of one person onto someone else body. What's the best way to blend skin tones to make as seamless as possible? I've tried many different methods but feel there must be a more logical way. Thanks
  15. Having issues with text looking pixelated, shadowy, fuzzy in project. Happens whether I create text within the project or create separate text only (not a pixel layer) document then try to copy/paste into working project.
  16. Thank you for your reply. This is precisely what I’ve been doing but I think I may have had a glitch in the software. Had to exit the program re-Open And it worked beautifully. Appreciate your reply, though.
  17. Thank you for the Quick mask tutorial. it really makes some selections much easier. I do have a question though, for some reason I am getting inconsistent color of selected item. Could it be that when I select the white brush I am not at pure white? It seems that there should be easy way to go back and forth between black and white rather than ever to use the color wheel each time.
  18. Ezra, I am making my way through the course. Well done. Although I am much more comfortable with my understanding and can follow I find the Adjustments & Filter section videos lack some of the depth of explanation found in the earlier videos. Question: I have several selections (of people) that I copied to their own pixel layer in Channels but I am having a challenge figuring out how to copy these selections into different photo. It's probably somewhere in the course vids. Thanks for the great work.
  19. I have made a selection and copied it via the channels to its own pixel layer. How can I copy this selection, or any other, into another photo?
  20. Are modifiable histograms available in iPad app as they are in desktop. Would make many adjustments easier to visualize and perform
  21. Histograms come up automatically in the Mac version when making adjustments etc. I think. I do not see them on the iPad version unless I push the metadata icon. Is there a preference settings so that I can have histograms appear and be manipulated in my adjustments etc.?
