    I figured out that I was using the Color Replacement Brush Tool, not the regular Brush Tool.

    Hi nautiloda
    It sounds like you need to use a Soft Proof layer, but I'm not sure what Profile is being used in the video above.
    I recommend checking out our Soft Proofing video, found below!

    Dan C reacted to dannyg9 in Tattoos For Men Magazine 109   
    Rolling along in a groove, thanks to Photo, Designer, QuarkXpress, and PDF Expert (no Adobe products involved WHATSOEVER).
    Latest Issue of Tattoo Media Ink's "Tattoos For Men" #109 is on sale now. Cover to cover, all photos were processed with Photo. Mind you some of the source material wasn't the greatest, but you work with what you've been dealt. I used Designer to recreate the Title logo, which is also used as footers on the inner pages. It's been almost 2 years since I used Adobe products, and especially InDesign and I don't miss any of it. Dabbling with Publisher and am looking forward to when I can use it side by side with Xpress. I've used Publisher for some small single page projects, but I can't put a 100 page publication solely on it's shoulders just yet. Loving Affinity products.

    edit: i found a solution. i went to the eraser and saved that as a brush since it was still in default. 
    hi, thanks. i changed all the dynamics to none 0%. i can’t seem to figure out how to remove a brush nozzle.

    Hi tylerthehuman,
    Welcome to the forums
    Please find a screenshot of the default settings below, the Dynamics should all be set to none/0% and there should be no Brush Nozzles or Base Textures set under the Textures tab. I hope this helps!

    Dan C reacted to jmark4545 in Affinity Photo could not be launched. Please press cancel.   
    I am now able to use Affinity Photo Beta successfully. Here's why:
    First Issue - "Affinity Photo" wouldn't (and still won't) launch from within Apple Photos.
    Solution to first issue: Use "Affinity Photo Beta". Down load it. Install it. Launch it from within Apple Photos. Second Issue - I downloaded "Affinity Photo Beta" but couldn't complete the installation of it.
    Solution to second issue: My "Affinity Photo" app was in the wrong directory. I moved it back to Macintosh\Applications. I then double clicked on the "Affinity Photo Beta" app and it launched and installed successfully. Next, I opened Apple Photos and successfully launched "Affinity Photos Beta" from within Apple Photos. Below is a photo of what I now see from within Apple Photos. You can see that both "Affinity Photo" (triangle shaped icons) and "Affinity Photo Beta" (square shaped icons) are available. I now use just the beta options.
    Thank you to everyone who helped with this successful resolution.

    Ah, that worked, thank you.  I'll work out at some point what actually happened.
    Ah yes, history.  I put a feature request in, asking if it was possible to add an option so you choose the default on/off condition for a new document.  Especially when you're experimenting or when you have to share work with someone else it makes sense to have that default set so you can't forget it..
    Thank you for the help!
    Kind regards, Binc

    Hi BatteriesInc
    Without the document history I have to make a few assumptions, but I can see the D1 Left object is a (Curves) object, rather than a (Curve) object, like Right & Top are. (Curves) objects can be divided back into the shapes that were used to create them - if you use the Divide command, select the 2 objects created and then use the Combine Command, you'll find that this line disappears and the object is now a (Curve) in the layers panel. I hope this helps!

    Dan C got a reaction from TinaT in Tightening Bounding Boxes around content.   
    No problem at all!
    DM1 is correct, as the image has been placed it is an (Image) layer rather than a (Pixel) layer. If you select the object and then rasterise it from the drop down menu in the top left then your bounding box will be correctly set to the pixel object. I hope this helps

    It’s an 'image', probably pasted. Rasterise it and It will be fine.

    Dan C reacted to firstdefence in How can I import Color Palettes en masse?   
    There is a way... on Mac at least,
    If you can collect the palettes as .clr palettes (Apple Color Palette) you could drop all the palettes you want into the Colors folder: Users > Yourname > Library > Colors 
    From there these palettes will show in the swatches panel as apple palettes which has the bonus of being available systemwide in any app that can use .clr palettes.

    Dan C reacted to MEB in Exported Tiff has wrong dpi   
    Hi Tim,
    Welcome to Affinity Forums
    Note, the dpi issue was already fixed in Affinity Photo 1.7 Customer Beta in case you wish to give it a try. No need to untick Embed Metadata there (only in the current retail).

    Dan C got a reaction from ianrb in different image on Ap and Lr5 screen   
    It sounds as though this may be an issue with Lr5, as the image is sent from one app to the other, it may be being compressed etc in order to be transferred.
    The other possibility is that you're seeing the differences between RAW engines and noise reduction, this has been greatly improved in the Affinity Photo 1.7 beta. I'd recommend installing this and opening your images from Lr5 here to see if the issue is negated

    Apologies, Alfred is correct in his above post - this is not currently possible as Palette files must be imported individually.

    Dan C reacted to Corinne27 in Files turned to Paper- Can't Open   
    I really have no idea what happened. I am certainly never again going to so carelessly move files. The problem is resolved now. I copied all of the Affinity files on my computer so that I did not make anything worse. 

    Then I deleted the software and files all together. I was able to reinstall the software from my Affinity account, which still had the product key. Now everything has returned to normal and is working as it should. I have taken special care with the files.
    I appreciate your help trying to solve this! I'm sure troubleshooting is a lot harder when you're far away and can't look at the computer. You've all done a great job! Thank you!
