  1. I'm happy with the new release of the Affinity suite but as always ... I'm a beta cycle man, So I feel such boring and would like to know when is next Beta session planed and what's targeted ! Thanks.
  2. +1 on this request. Pattern creation tool/studio is not only important but life and time saving but also will help us create awesome stuffs in less time. the already existing tools are cool and okay but being able to create patterns from object etc. in a dynamic mode is super cool and shift affinity users in higher places. Well all this should be done and made in Serif/Affinity way and not drag'n drop of what already exist on Adobe products.
  3. Definitely this need to happen. i don't how people from Mac are doing but when I make a document with lot's of layers and Fx applied there plus some polishing from APhoto the thing get's laggy and no one said 12GiB of RAM isn't enough The hang mostly happen with APublisher but I suspect if I make massive use of APhoto or ADesigner it will surface so, GPU Acceleration is needed on Windows like ... yesterday ! TBH I like what the Serif team is doing and the way you guys work but think of us needing to stand the Challenge of Un-Adobing our lives and creations. Thanks !
  4. Thanks for your answer. We just agreed to normalize things in the team and not using too different fonts. We just allowed to tweak it a bit but if we talk fedora or lenovo we are granted with their official fonts so we can't do much but stick with official which is a cool thing too. But I take your advice and will try to make things change when an opportunity is shown. Warm Blessings
  5. Hello Everyone ! Was busy and far from this nice place ! not much to say, check on the YouTube thumbnails here, made with the Affinity suite and drop me your comments and advises as always to help me do better. Blessings !
  6. Well I want to make sure before I source that GPU because i'm in such a limited budget lifestyle right now ! Also isn't GPU accelerated thing a good thing to implement on windows ? Affinity look so fast and cool on MacOS with Metal then it does on windows right now and ... there is a need for the second ecosystem to also receive that improvement.
  7. Hi @Sean P are we getting some inputs or updates from the respective teams about diagonal guides ? Affinity is getting seriously deep in so many design companies and for Freelancers this feature is actually needed to help achieving much more. Diagonal guide would actually help me on shape cutting on precise angles and do consistent work, i just guess other people here would agree with me at least on that point.
  8. Hello everyone Hello Support and Dev Team Would like to know if it is planned to make the Dodge and burn tools to also work on mask (of all type). It is sometime very helpful for white fringes removal during when removing BG. Well until then, Blessings y'All !
  9. Hello Everyone ! long time i've been here. Well ! a good friend of mine is planing to ship me with an Nvidia GTX 1060 @6GiB VRam to help me have better experience on using my prefered design software. My actual GPU is GeForce 210 @1GiB VRam and there isn't a real change, well it works but ... Anything i should know about owning that GPU and running Affinity ? i want to make sure of everything or close to everything before it reaches my door. Thanks for helping me understand and improve.
  10. Well Today i'll come back on the above from my friend @Wosven Well the client did vote the thing and i had no more extra steps to do but i'm about to send this one ! Y'all can tell me what you think about it.
  11. Hello Everyone ! Today i've got time and made a quick turn here to post the below ! As always, your impressions and recommendations are welcome ! Hope @Wosven is still around.
  12. Hello @Wosven This is the kind of idea i like ! Thank you all for reviewing my work here, it's really helpful ! Blessings.
  13. Hello @GarryP Glad to read from you ! Here are my answers to your preocupations about the design i posted. Well, it is actually to be used as a facebook post image, not sure it will work on twitter but i believe it can be used too ! Okay ! System76 actually is not the main focus, their opinion on this is that everyone representative should go as much self leaded as they can, so the focus here should go to the Representative then anything else, i put Belgium in high letters because the deal is for him first let know to everyone that he's active. Yes ! that too is a thing i did to push people to go and discover by themself what System76 actually is, worked with you so ... i'm fine ! Next designs will come with less focus on the country this won't go live until system76 approves it, it's the reason why i shared it here for a quick review that will allow me to build an iteration if needed and submit before the thing get 100% approved. Anyway thanks, i like your inputs and appreciate that you care about community members like me. Blessings !
  14. Hello Everyone ! I'm happy to be back here after a long long time without going the creative way. Today i want to share with you a small and quick project i've put in place for a young man who is a friend of mine from Belgium in Europe. He actually is a lucky man and have been called to be an Official Representative for System76 (you can check them at www.system76.com ) Well it is a simple test to put me back on the track ! Please like for all previous projects, tell me what you really think about and would change or better if it was you. I will take it in account and work on making better stuffs, Thank You in advance. Blessings !
  15. Well, Well, Well ! Thank you so much everyone for your inputs ! and YES you are all right about the changes and ideas. But ... the client wanted it that way so i had to make necessary transformations to fits his demand. Thank you so much @Wosven you really know how French designs should be and your words are of great help ! Thank you @GarryP your input opened my eyes too. @Dazmondo77 Expect more inputs from you but i believe next one i publish you will tell openly what you think you could do to make it even better. Thanks to @Mark Ingram @MEB @Andy Somerfield and the whole Serif Affinity Team for this great Product ! Just now waiting for the next Beta cycle to start ! Blessings !
  16. Hello Everyone ! it's been a long time since i came here and published some work ! So, i took it and decided to share my last project made 2 days before Affinity Designer & Affinity Photo goes Final Release. The whole thing was done teaming AfDesigner + AfPhoto + AfPublisher for an even happening in Paris France (i hope @Wosven) is arround and will appreciate and drop his comments. Since the software have gone Final, I've not made creative work yet but taking time to rest and remember the good days of the Beta Cycle, today i read Publisher is going to be release tomorrow so i decided: Let me Share this one here, because Publisher was the center in this Project. Hope you will like it and share your comments here to help me improve. NOW ! i wait for the next Beta Cycle from Serif because they're fun, exiting and open the mind and just ... bring us all together ! Blessings !
  17. Hello @Wosven i am but they are still making their mind and i will start working on it when they all come together otherwise, time will be spent moving from this ot that one without any proper results. For this occasion i just made a text based design with common and known stuffs for them to have something they can look at. Your remark is welcome and just pointed the right thing, thank you for your kind words. Blessings.
  18. Hello People ! Back today with a really quick one, made for a friend of mine starting a SHEQ teaching business. This is really quick work made with AfPublisher with all pixels worked out with AfPhoto and Vectors with AfDesigner all 3 from the latest beta build (except AfPublisher because v.312 was not released yet). Tell me what you find and how you think you would improve this. Blessings.
  19. Hello @AdamW Thank you for this release. Download on my side was good, no stop, no real lag. no issue with installation, took around 3min (yes my mbp is not that recent) 1st launch was a bit slower than previous build, still no new splash screen there but the old black square thing ! loaded a project made with previous build version was quite fast no warning message, no lag. Did Export of that project made with previous build was fast for TIFF, better with PSD compared to previous build but i've noticed the software now open the exported document straight forward not giving us choice if we want it to load with default software or just save it and open later (maybe i'm missing something here,if so, please teach me how to fix). Also i've noticed the interface is more crisp and clear than previous version, in the same time i've noticed the change in the toogle preview mode button. the over all thing is Okay, even if i still need to give a serious try.
  20. Hello everyone ! Well i will try to make it short, today ! With all recents improvements brought into Affinity line of product, i believe it is time for Serif to develop what i would call smart layers. Well this smart layers would be similar to what one have on photoshop (smart object) but will be more flexible and would allow users who convert from Adobe products to not lose it all: Smart layer would : a- bring more non destructive possibilities as when we uses the develop persona Case: i open a a photo and switch to develop persona then do my thing there, the minute i click Develop the software should actually not apply all those tuning liek it does now but instead convert the photo into a smart layer and embed all settings in there as sub Adjust. layers or Live Adjust.layer allowing us to fine tune it later if wanted. b- handle smart objects from PS and make it possible to fine tune them or even better convert them (only convertible functions) into what we actually have and use on AfPhoto then allow users to continu and finish their work started on PS with AfPhoto with ease. c- help us go beyond what we do and actually make it possible for AfPhoto users to create Dynamic Mockups that would be used among all 3 softwares and even exported for use with PS but discarding non compatible stuffs also allowing to open and process Mockups crreated with PS without losing anything. implementing Smart Layers would actually open to new possibilities and this is only a glimpse of what i think it could be, anyone here more talented or aware of stuffs then i do should had inputs here to help the Dev's to figure it out even better. Blessings
  21. Hello Everyone ! Back today with only small stuff i've recently made. again that client of mine Perez Chapel Foucks for a quick Job (Yes they like quick stuffs !!!) A simple banner + Profile picture for their use. Hope you'll like it ! do not forget: Tell me what you think of it it was exclusively done with Affinity Designer Public Beta 1.7.0.10. Yes it has been a long time since i started and finished a project on AfDesigner only, since AfPublisher my workflow have evolved a bit.
  22. Hello Team ! Just wanted to know at some stage Affinity Photo will support Lens Profile for devices like iPhones, Samsung Galaxy, Huawei, Pixel and Mi by Xiaomi ? IN fact, today there a lot of people are shooting with their mobile phone because it is what they own and like but those devices doesn't produce RAW file the same way big brand does but some will produce HEIC, JPEG and TIFF files. I know you focus on Pro and Expert but will it be possible for small creators to also be taken in consideration ? Blessings
  23. Because it is always better to have everything in one place. ONly they don't work as expected then one can search - find - install and use another one (more suitable to him) Less is more: less installed software on a laptop/mac is still more. Blessings.
