Pepperdog2 reacted to dmstraker in Blend modes notes (52 A4 pages)
Attached is my complete set of notes about blend modes, now spread across 52 pages of A4.
These are significantly updated from the previous revision, with lots more 'recipes' and organisation of these under main topics, hopefully to make them more usable.

Pepperdog2 reacted to stephentuso in Material design asset pack
Here is a collection of assets created from the material design sticker sheet obtained here: https://material.google.com/resources/sticker-sheets-icons.html
Could use a little more work, but I've added constraints to the lists, UI bars, and tabs. Most of the shadows are currently bitmaps. I had issues with some text boxes becoming the wrong size when the group was turned into an asset, so artistic text is used in some places where a text frame would be more appropriate.
I couldn't find a license anywhere for the sticker sheet, so feel free to modify and share or use however you want, however, please don't redistribute as an asset pack while charging a price (sharing for free is fine).
If you want to share any changes/improvements, I'd appreciate it if you posted them to this thread.
An example I quickly made with some of the assets is below.
Pepperdog2 reacted to Przemysław in HKS colour systems
Hello my Friends,
I hope that HKS will be included in future in Affinity software alongside Pantone. For time being, I've prepared CMYK versions of HKS colour systems for coated (K) and uncoated (N) papers (download attached *.afpalette files). HKS 98 & HKS 99 are gold and silver (same in both).
Why? Lots of printers in Europe are using HKS, i.e. Saxoprint and others.

Pepperdog2 reacted to Sahil Ansari in How to design a business card and what is the size of it in mm | Affinity Publisher
In this Affinity Publisher Tutorial, We going to show you, How to design a Business Card in Affinity Publisher and what is the size of a Business card in MM units of measure. There is no standard for the business card dimensions. Sharing dimensions with other cards makes storage easier, for example, banking cards (85.60 × 53.98 mm) and business cards in Western Europe (85 × 55 mm) have almost the same size. In the design of 85x55mm size, If your image doesn’t bleed then your job just got a little easier. If you are using bleeds, then make sure your design area is set up with a 4 mm margin outside the printable area. so that our text or design in printing not be cut off. I hope you like it.
Pepperdog2 reacted to MEB in Removing white background
Welcome to Affinity Forums
One way to quickly remove the white here is using Blend Options - you can access them clicking the cog icon on the top right of the Layers panel. Set the left graph as shown on the screenshot below and you should get a clean result.
Pepperdog2 reacted to DocCoding in Gradient Pack - uiGradient.com
As a web designer, I find websites like uiGradients.com a quite useful resource, with a massive selection of ready-made gradients (and css code for those).
This palette is a complete (01.09.2018) pack of all gradients alongside their names, hand-imported over the course of an afternoon and a few podcasts.
I don't think you can copyright colors/gradients, but the GitHub repository of the uiGradients.com website is licensed under MIT. I'll try to keep the file up to date with the website, but if there's a missing gradient or a error, please tell me about it.
(A preview will follow soon)

Pepperdog2 reacted to wigglepixel in Tutorial on Color Models, Color Spaces and Color Profiles (two-part)
In the need to understand the sometimes complex subject of Color Models, Color Spaces and Color Profiles better, I found it hard to find a nice to read and complete source on the matter. So after I did a deep dive into the subject I decided to share what I've learned about it by writing a tutorial blog about it with illustrations and interactives. Yesterday I published part one about Color Models and color basics, to pave the way to Color Spaces for the next and last part of the article.
Although not directly Affinity related, I figured this could benefit other Affinity users too in understanding Color Spaces better and when to choose which in Designer and Photo. And making Color Spaces a little less confusing to understand. Of coarse all graphics-work for illustrations and interactives in the tutorial are made in Affinity Designer.
The blog is available in both Dutch (https://www.wigglepixel.nl/blog/wat-zijn-color-models/) and translated in English (https://www.wigglepixel.nl/en/blog/what-are-color-models/).
Hope you like it and if this makes others understand the subject better and as enthousiastic as I am now about it after this, I reached my goal!

Pepperdog2 reacted to VectorVonDoom in Quilling, Letter A (AD)
I wasn't in the mood to do any proper work this evening so was messing around and tried emulating quilling in AD with the letter A. As it was trying to copy hand curled paper it also meant I didn't have to get the curves or spirals perfect.
Pepperdog2 reacted to Tsetsoh in Free CG Textures
I have used this resource for years. They have a large, easily searchable catalog. I have never failed to find something I can use for a background, overlay, texture etc.
With a free membership you get a much larger download limit. I find that I have never bumped my limit. Of course, with paid membership one gets an amazing download limit.
Pepperdog2 reacted to MEB in bolean operations explanation required......!
Welcome to Affinity Forums
Here's a quick example showing the subtract boolean operation (note you need to have at least two objects selected for the Geometry operation's icons become available in the main toolbar):
All the other operations work in a similar way and are self-explanatory. Add will simple add both shapes, turning them into a single shape. Intersection will turn the common area between the two shapes into its own shape discarding the rest. Divide splits the objects and common areas into separate independent shapes. Combine merges the objects leaving the overlapping/common areas transparent. Check this Help topic for more details: Joining objects.
Also note that if you press and hold ⌥ (option/alt) while clicking on an operation icon in the main toolbar you will create a compound object instead (which is basically a non-destructive boolean operation). If you click the small arrow near the compound layer's thumbnail in the Layers panel (to expand it) you will have access to the original shapes used to generate the compound. You can edit them as any regular shape and the compound will update itself to reflect the changes you have made. To lean more about non-destructive boolean operations (compound objects) check this Help topic: Compound objects.
