  1. Problem solved. I went to effects and just moved the slider of 3D, the radius slider and save the image. I just deleted the style and saved it again. It is then displaing the icon correctly.
  2. MEB, I have uploaded the psd file. I have opened the file in AP and in the layers panel, I have chosen Orange to save as a style. I renamed the preset as Peach. The name is there, but no preview image. It however works like a charm. I would like to save the other colours as well.
  3. I have loaded a psd file of a gel text in Affinity Photo Desktop 1.7.2. I have saved the style and got a blank icon. There is not the usual gear with colour. I have renamed it to recognise it again. So I see the name in styles, but there is no image. When I apply it, it works perfectly and do what I want. Is there a way to manually load an icon on somewhere to rectify the problem? The styles I previously saved as such, display an icon.
  4. I am a user of ViaCAD 11 Pro as well as the Affinity trio. I always get the display message that Via CAD has reverted to Windows 7 basic colour scheme when I stat Via CAD. Affinity Photo and the beta refuse to start while ViaCad is open. It prompts me that Windows Aero is needed. I have no idea what it is. So now, i have to use some other program when I am working with ViaCad to save the captured screenshots.
  5. Yes, I include the url for you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDZONrrCh64 I only want to draw cut lines for printing to the correct size on an ordinary A4 paper printer.
  6. I am new to Affinity Designer. I just managed to get to work comfortly with Affinity Photo on PC. I have it since November. The Photo for iPad, I purchased about six weeks ago (when I purchased an iPad) and I manage. It is not so much different if you know Android. However, it was a learning process the learn how iOs operates. I purchased the iPad Designer a few days ago and I am trying to get my feet wet. I recently watched a video from Ian Atkinson, using Adobe Illustrate, where he place a camera photo (of a knife) on a document. He measured the length of the knife and then used a command where he states that measurement between two points. AI then scaled the document correctly. I assume he must specify somewhere what the paper size will be. He then draws outlines for his leather cut list to make a pouch and accurately prints them. Can this be done in Designer for iPad, or must I make two points, print and then calculates on what scale I must print and reprint? I can also start a template with the right dimensions and place a ruler image as a layer and then scale the object according to the ruler?
  7. I will play with all the info I got. Thank you guys.
  8. With the flip command, all layers flipped. I will try again.
  9. I have no idea how it works. On grounds of you guys, I just bought it. Only the iPad version. I have Photo for PC and iPad, and if it is half as good as I expext, I know it wil works wonders.
  10. I noticed that if I make a selection or if I select a layer, everything reacts to a flip command. Is it possible to flip something selected and not everything.
  11. In the PC desktop version of Affinity Photo I can customize the left hand side by choosing which buttons appear and which not. Can it be done in Affinity Photo for iPad? Alternatively, can a script be recorded and a button added to it interactively and moved to the left side?
  12. I am mostly using Affinity Photo, although I have Photoshop CS6 and Paintshop Pro 2018. I export my affinity photos to Jpg for my web page. I am an author and post my book cover pages. I only get a little larger size if I prefer the size to be big. The quality is exceptional. I can define dpi as well. I can assure you Affinity Photo do not have to back down for other apps.
  13. GabrielM, it is working. In the iPad version I made the sellection and nothing happened apart from the sellection ellips appearing. So I canged back to ordinary persona, select Paste boards, copy, and new pixel layer, sellect the layer, back to Paste boards and paste. Then it is there. I need the edge to be about five times wider, the section where the sellection fades to transparent. The biggest edge effect is with feathering at 7.5, but I guess the image pixel size is the determining factor.
  14. It did not work as I wanted. I then tried duplicating a layer and applied a mask to it. I inverted it and draw what i needed wit a very large blush widt and a 1% hardness. It worked as I needed.
  15. I am not shure if I am using the correct terminology. I want to make a ellipse selection of a person's face and paste it as a new layer over another background. I want the elipse sellection's edge to fade to nothing on the edges, as wide as a pencil (1/4 inch). Almost like a vignette, but it fades to transparent nothing.
  16. Thanks. I have not tried that, only long press.
  17. I have edited a few photographs now. As a new iPad user of Affinity Photo, I realised it works a bit different than the desktop version for windows. I could not manage to select more than one layer in the layer window. How do you do it?
  18. R C-R, I have not done it myself on the iPad yet, but this is how I would approach it: I would create a new document that is greater than the picture you would like to edit. I will place the pic in question over that as a new layer, On the right hand side I would go to the funnel icon and about a third from the bottom is the perspective. I wil drw the top two corners wider until the perspective is correc, Merge and crop. There is the right way I know, but I have not yet tried it. Go to the help section. I think it is in one of the tutorials. What I like about affinity, is that you can achieve the end results in various ways quite often.
  19. Alfred, Thanks, it was what I was looking for. It does exactly what I want. Thank you so much.
  20. I just purchased the iPad version of Affinity Photo for my iPad Pro 10.5. As an author I make several mockup images of 3D paperback boks for web pages. I have a standard photograph of a paperback book and place the front page image (2D flat image) as a layer on top. I then use the perspecrive tool and align the four cornes of the front page image with the four corners of the book. I then flatten the image and I have a new image of a book. In the iPad version, I do not find the perspective tool. How can I achieve my goal?
  21. I don,t know, the glass ones has elements of tranparency, but not the solid gel.
  22. I did it a bit different. I kept the styles open in the category I have created and on the psd file I have right clicked and saved style. It was there. The first two make an icon, but the last 3 didn't.
