  1. Was about to post the same here. Maybe that's caused from purchasing Designer and Photo from the Apple App Store and Publisher from Affinity's website.
  2. Hello there! I can confirm the app gets unbearably unstable (freezing, unable to zoom/move) when using specifically the Clone Tool too much. I mean, if you’re just going to clone certain part of a photo, it makes no difference; but, if you’re doing some serious cloning for more than 5-10 minutes, the app just freezes and prevents you from selecting other tools. It also affects panning and zooming using gestures. It happens 95% of the times to me. I’m using a 12” iPad Pro 2018. - Enrique
  3. Hi! Sorry for the delayed reply. As Madame points out, this was offered as a free pack back in 2017, to FX Monkey email subscribers. Now this pack it's $2.99 USD. You can find it at the FX Monkey Store. However, we're offering a new eBook/Macros combo for free, if you subscribe to the FX Monkey mailing list (you can opt out immediately after getting the free files if you wish): FX Monkey You'll find the subscription form at the bottom of the page. Cheers, Enrique
  4. Hello there, I've just found a tiny error when attempting to open a previously closed file through the Open Recent menu. It always returns this message: "Failed to open file... The file is already open by another application", even if it's not. What I do is to close Publisher and once opened again, the file loads normally through the same Open Recent menu. Bests, Enrique
  5. Hi! Determining the actual weight of individual Styles and Assets (Masks) that way may be kind of deceptive. As I mentioned in other thread; despite their huge dimensions (meant for big printed artwork), the largest Style/Mask only weights around 2.2 MB, which isn't by any means a huge memory-eater Thanks a lot for your purchase by the way! I'm also looking forward to everybody being able of using this pack at its fullest on their iPads. Enrique
  6. Just want to add to this topic that despite the large dimensions of Propaganda Design Kit's Assets, the 'heaviest' of these textures weights about 2.2 MB (at 3,600 x 4,800 px); the rest gravitates towards 250 KB to 800 KB. So they're pretty lightweight to use, in general. - Enrique
  7. Hi Kenan, Thanks a lot for your purchase and your constant support! I'm really sorry you're experiencing this. Apparently, it's only happening on newer iPads, since I haven't had any troubles when I import the pack into my older 2015 iPad Pro. I've had a couple of crashes on 2017 iPad's but the Styles and Assets got installed after restarting the app or the iPad. I hope this issue gets fixed soon Enrique
  8. Hi, Sean, I already send you the pack via PM Cheers, Enrique

  12. @Cealcrest This looks fantastic, love the line weights you've achieved here! I'm sorry I didn't see this before, haven't had much time to browse the forum lately. Cheers
  13. Hello there! This request may sound stupid, because the least thing you'd want to happen when working on a file is being unable to go back to a previous color adjustment/setting. And in that regard, Affinity Photo is a beast! I've files with literally dozens of Adjustment Layers stacked upon each other... UNLESS... you're working on a schedule, being TIME your most relentless enemy when you're hired per hour. Last week I helped on a matte-painting project for a gaming company and (I haven't noticed this workflow issue until then), creating an Adjustment Layer whenever you need to make a quick Levels, Curves, HSL, etc. tweak and keep painting over, can become your worst nightmare when having just 8 hours to deliver 4 on-set paintings. I know you can merge that layer immediately after you've made the adjustment (even with a shortcut), but BELIEVE ME, having to: 1. Create the Adjustment Layer. 2. Nesting it to the specific layer you need to apply the tweak (if not, it affects all layers) 3. Merging it down 4. Repeat for the next one... It's a very tiring set of tasks you need to do, only to make the shadows of a single tree more intense (I.E.), inside a dozens-of-layers scene. Hope this request makes sense, because it's directly related with money and delivery times and will improve A LOT certain type of work pipelines. Cheers, Enrique
  14. This is a nice suggestion. I was a color-layer junkie back when I used Photoshop everyday. It may seem like a trivial thing, but when you've been sitting for 8 straight hours a day working on several files, marking layers with colors are a BIG visual aid. Cheers.
  15. THANK YOU! that worked... I would give you a hug if I could haha @Alfred You're right. the key here is CTRL in both Windows and Mac. Thanks!
  16. HI there! I've been struggling for hours trying to open Affinity Photo on my iMac, which it's freezing when I try to open it (reinstalling, safe boot and all that stuff didn't work). I identified the problem immediately after it happened: I was creating a new brush When I tried to load a texture, the program crashed Then I re-opened AP, tried to load that texture again and AP crashed again I didn't try to reload that texture again, because I figured out that it was causing the program to crash I re-opened AP for a third time, and since then, the app freezes before it gets started I wan't to know how to delete all my brushes manually from outside the program... As far as I know, there's no data stored in Mac's Library Folder right?, so I can't figure out how to delete that brushes and prevent AP to try looking for them when starting up... any idea on how to purge the cache would be helpful too. Thanks in advance.
  17. Thank you all for downloading it! Please if you have any tutorial/resource request don not hesitate to drop me a line at: contact@frankentoon.com :)
  18. Yeah, I could, but I'm used to have a generic hosting service apart from our websites just to link images... it has to do with my own OCD I think haha :)
  19. BTW... I want to apologize for the Photobucket's disaster, they've just slapped in the face even their PAID MEMBERS (me included). So all of our images in the forum aren't being displayed correctly as you may tell by looking at this very thread. Obviously I won't pay $400 for the right to 3rd party hosting... We're working on a better solution that will be buying (ASAP) our own hosting with the sole purpose of store and hot linking promo images and such...
  20. Hi there! Thanks for asking, actually I'm working on a tutorial showing the basics and practical applications of image textures and pattern brushes in AD, Which is basically the method I've used for the dancer illustration :) I'll be announcing the release of that tutorial on our Twitter account: @frankentoon please stay tuned! Cheers!
  21. Thanks a bunch for your purchase, hope you have fun the pack :D :D
