  1. In the stroke panel one T-shirt is set to Mitre 30 and the other is set to Mitre 1.5 that's the only difference I could find
  2. Does this coincide with the nodes at all?
  3. It doesn't go beyond that explanation and I suspect that is because it is a more specialised export and that you would probably know what token variables are and how to use them.
  4. Maybe introduce a lock and full lock Lock allows editing but not movement or deletion Full lock disallows editing and movement and deletion Personally, I like the fact that a layer can be location-locked but still be editable for tweaking if selected from the layers panel. In the work space, for all intents and purposes, editing and location are locked, which is what the lock feature is supposed to do - disallow editing within the workspace, because, if anything is going to get moved or accidentally knocked its in the workspace. On the layers panel its generally a deliberate action of selection so the intent to edit is there, even if you accidentally select a layer from the layers panel nothing can be edited unless you take more action in which case it becomes a deliberate action. One thing I didn't like from the layers panel was that you can delete a layer that's locked, I don't think deleting a locked layer should be allowable.
  5. I like the idea of enhancement not creation in the second link.
  6. How about a few ideas people... You could have your clones stood nearby like two strangers having a conversation or argument and another clone walking into a lampost or glass door. Clones standing in a queue at a bus stop all doing funny stuff. Clones going up and down an escalator.
  7. The text you turned into curves, select all of the letters and then under Operations choose Add this makes handles all those layers much easier Next duplicate the Added together text curves layer and drag it above the image used for distressing. Right click on the Added together text curves layer and choose Mask To Below What you end up with is the file below, I added the orange rectangle to highlight what is happening with the white distressed layer in the shape of the lettering. diss mask to below.afdesign
  8. Yes I considered that too but for the sake completeness I used all the people. These sort of photographs do take a bit of forethought with regard to backgrounds and composition.
  9. I've used a few techniques in this image, including selection and erase, New Panorama - yes I know odd but it worked for some of the image composition and a bit of replace colour to define the girl with the back to the camera. merged images.afphoto
  10. These images take more thinking than you realise, they can look great when done well and add a splash of comedy into the mix, also recolouring such as the red coat would be fairly easy too. Might have a doodle to see what I can come up with lol
  11. Hi, how are you applying the focus? with a filter?
  12. Which brush are you using, I tried a similar looking brush and got a better result with the Pull option. Also some brushes are designed or don't work well with a large pt size. Have you tried playing with the stroke panel and things like the cap, join and align?
  13. going to save me a fortune in low tack masking tape lol!
  14. My current method for locking guides in affinity
  15. So, for the sake a scroll wheel notch you can scale the object to the desired approximate dimensions and then mouse over the number.{whatever} and move the scroll wheel up or down to your desired perfect pixel dimension?
