    Is there a similar function in photo?

    I'm not on an ipad. I'm on a desktop. Looks like I put this in the wrong thread. That is exactly what I needed! Thanks so much! I added it to the icons panel, which I moved to the top. Wish I could move my watermark to the top of the icons, but I'll settle for being able to find it quickly. Thank you! I've been trying to figure this out for hours.
  3. Thanks BobDaubs and Wosven. Both of your answers were very helpful.

    sharpen brush

    I'm trying to create a brush of my watermark. (It's really more of a stamp. I just stamp it on. I don't draw with it like a traditional brush.) When I did this in photoshop, the watermark came out crisp and clean. In affinity designer, it comes out blurry around the edges. I have adjusted the hardness and flow to 100%, and I've tried messing with other settings, but nothing seems to work. Any ideas?
  5. I am working with a photo. I added some adjustment layers for white balance and brightness. Then I copied and pasted some sections of the photo to hide some problems in the background. Those new sections don't have the adjustments applied, so I want to add the same adjustments to those new layers. When I try to adjust just the single new layers, it readjusts my original adjustments instead. I can't create a new white balance and brightness layer for the new layers only. I've tried adjusting from the adjustments panel and from the layers panel -- both with the same result. The instructions from the help menu make it sound like I should be able to apply adjustments to a single layer, but it's not working for me. Help, please! Thank you!
  6. Thank you so much, owenr! I'm glad the solution was so simple. It was driving me crazy!
  7. I am trying to create a brush with my watermark to add to photos. When I previously created it in Photoshop, the brush size was 589 px, which is typically the size I need the brush for most of my photos. When I create the brush in affinity photo (by creating a png file of my watermark, and then creating a new intensity brush from the dropdown menu in the brushes panel, the brush is created as size 64 px. It doesn't matter how big my original file is. I have tried making the png bigger as well. It always ends up size 64 px. Is there a way to control the pixel size of the created brush? Thank you!
  8. Ha! I just found a video online that showed me a back door to uninstall programs. It worked! Wish me luck that everything will be back to normal when I reinstall.
  9. My fills came back using the preferences restore defaults. Thank you, firstdefense.
  10. Hmm. I just tried to uninstall Affinity Designer so that I could reinstall it to see if that would solve my problems. Interestingly, the computer popped up a message that I did not have appropriate permissions to uninstall the program. That's the same message I got when I tried to uninstall the printer to reinstall it. My printer is detected by the computer. It will scan. It just won't recognize it to print. HP support said to uninstall and reinstall. Interesting that I can't uninstall either program. Sounds like something fishy is going on.
  11. Is there a way to restore deleted default color pallets in Affinity Design? When I was messing around with creating a color pallet for a document, I deleted the color pallet I was working on two or three times and started over. I didn't realize that I had added on to default color pallets. When I deleted my work, I deleted the defaults. All I have left are the Pantone pallets. Thanks.
  12. Yesterday, my computer got some new updates from Windows. Now I'm experiencing some problems. I'm not sure if they are related to the updates or just bugs in the software. I started noticing last night that the flood fill tool in affinity designer was working weird. Instead of changing the color of one part of my image, when I clicked on a new color, it changed the entire image to different shades and tones of that color. That worked off and on. Sometimes I could get it to work normally, and sometimes it did the weird tone thing. This afternoon, I tried to print from Affinity without exporting the document to any format. Affinity shut down. I tried again. Same thing. I exported the file to a pdf, and all of the sudden my computer will no longer recognize my printer. I don't know if that is from the update or from Affinity. Back to the flood tool. Now it won't do anything. It won't change the colors of my image at all. It briefly changed the weird tones and shades, and now it won't do anything. (I have restarted my computer several times trying to get the printer to work again.) Does anyone know of any glitches going on related to Windows 10 updates, or is there a known glitch with the fill tool? I've used it many times. Thanks for your help.
  13. I do have Disney Circle. I'll check there. Thanks. I can watch vimeo on my phone with no problem.
  14. Thank you! That's exactly the help I was looking for with both questions.
