  1. Just opened this in Affinity Photo v2 and it opens fine, in yours it looks like the warps are being ignored.
  2. I selected the layers seen highlighted and removed the fill and changed the line stroke to 0.2px, job done. Passed to svg1.1 Pittsburgh-edited.svg
  3. Looks like Affinity is filling open curves/paths. Can you upload the SVG for us to look at?
  4. Interesting Video on luminosity and Affinity Photo, although it's showing it's age a bit now being 4 years old.
  5. Thanks for the explanations people, got a clearer understanding of whats happening.
  6. Actually no, I see a similar effect to the command click in photoshop, albeit slightly more intense. I'd be interested to know why my method is more intense, when I am effectively doing the same thing but in individual stages. Maybe there is a layering effect on selection making each pixel more opaque?
  7. Or you could play around with a Channel Mixer Adjustment Layer set to soft or hard blend mode and drop the opacity to about 25%.
  8. Affinity doesn't have a RGB composite layer so you would need to select each RGB composite channel. From the Channel Panel Right Click on the Composite red and select load to pixel selection Then Right Click on Composite Green and select add to pixel selection Then Right Click on Composite Blue and select add to pixel selection Now you have your RGB selection... Now do a Copy and Paste and change the ensuing layer to soft or hard light.
  9. Compounds don't retain individual colours like illustrator does and until the compound feature does it will always be messy. You could make an outline to enable clipping of the belly and anything else that overlaps the outer edge of the shape, so you can use the compound feature to create an outer curve, you do this by duplicating the compound and then converting it to a curve. Unfortunately you would need to do this again if you had to move arms ears etc but it is what it is and until the compound can retain individual colours I don't see a way round this, although there are some creative problem solvers on here that know a better way.
  10. HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) offers a basic text structure i.e block text, paragraph emphasis, lists and strong but CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) is primarily used for text styling. That said none of the Affinity apps can handle HTML nor CSS so you will have to use the dev tab in a browser to find out a text's CSS attributes or be able to access the CSS file to glean styling info. So it's a case of stripping any formatting and starting from scratch unless you know of an app that can convert CSS to Document text styles. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Learn/HTML/Introduction_to_HTML/Advanced_text_formatting
  11. I got the info to show 10% by converting the profile to these settings. That still doesn't solve the 10% Black /11% displayed issue.
  12. Hi @chriscaldwell I had a look at the logo and the brush used displays a translucent halo effect which to my mind looks unsightly. The effect is shown in the screenshot on the right, I think it was one of the pencil brushes. The brushes used on the left are Simple pen (for closed curves) I used this for the handle of the brush, and then used Simple pen (for open curves) for the bristles. This is just my personal observation.
  13. Try using a rectangle. Overlay and rotate the rectangle to match the images skew and obviously fitting the rectangles edges to the images edges, well approximately. On the transform panels R: input box input 0 and press enter to rotate the rectangle back straight, make sure lock children is unchecked. Now you can create an Artboard with Size: Selection. Straighten image in AD.mp4
  14. It's quite telling that AI cant yet do vector creation from scratch. I suppose you could create a clean raster in a vectorised style and then get a decent tracer app to break it up into vectors.
