  1. Hello Support ! We got surprised by the step taken by Serif Affinity team on bringing new functionality into ADesigner that made the software even usable and one of it was symbols. That time you made the move, other software specialized on Web Design (Vector Design) where playing on other ground and suddenly adopted the symbol thing and i see few have quite improved it. Personally i was waiting for ADesigner to offer new stuffs like wire stuff that allow to connect artboards etc... in fact, now that Muse and other Website design software are dead, we all tends to rely on what we have
  2. Hello Everyone ! I would like to know what is the easiest way to match colors on a Photo Montage/Composition in Affinity Photo without going all this crazy and too technical way. Is Serif thinking about bringing in the Color Match Live adjustment ? it is needed and may help shorten too long workflow or steps. Blessings !
  3. Hello People Hello Dev's and Team Well today i'll make it simple for this amazing product we love. I would suggest a new Special Filter to be developed and implemented on Affinity Photo. The Skin Tone Live filter This Special filter should take care of helping the user to process skin tone adjustment in a Pro way and with ease of use. it should come with a tonal range picking tool that allow to pick and a set the initial/reference point/color range we would like to apply into areas we wish to correct. The filters should be Live and Non Destructive allowing a anytime tuning.
  4. As always @Wosven you give the best advice and ask the best questions. I will do a favor to you because you help me so much but it won't be public at all (at least for now). You have opened a door to many thus believe you are a great blessing. Check your mailbox. Blessings !
  5. Hello Dear Affinitizers. Happy to be back with this quick one; yesterday i was trusted again by Perez Chapel Foucks to design a quick Banner + Square ad for their whatsapp and other socials. The idea is simply to announce the monthly topic they are to talk about. As they liked the previous job made for the Diner so they asked this other one to be as the previous but a bit customized. Like always, your inputs are welcome and will help me improve even more like you have noticed i'm doing since i'm sharing my works here with you. @Andy Somerfield i have struggled a bit with the tone ma
  6. Thank You Guys @Alfred @MEB for your kind and helpful answers to this. Then i believe Serif should really take it serious because the release of 1.7 will make noise and with noise comes problems. My side i'm happy but was thinking about peoples out there. Blessings !
  7. Hello Everyone ! Hello Team ! i'm maybe wrong asking this, if so, please forgive. Publisher is the master piece in my workflow and it does quite good vector operations but i've noticed i can't expand strokes. Okay, i maybe wrong here or asking too much but very soon the software will go public and there are peoples out there who will buy Publisher only expecting to do few with it and expand strokes is not something of too much luxury to add in there. As i said, i maybe wrong but Serif team should teach me on this if i'm wrong, but if it is something another user have noticed an
  8. Hello Everyone ! Back today with quick designs i've made for my YouTube channel. I got time since yesterday to put things together and upload some Fast track videos i've made. The first video you will find in the below link, hope you will drop some like and comments there too. i really enjoyed doing this again, from Video to Thumbnail Design and instagram post. Even though the actual rescale function into Affinity Publisher is still missing the liquid rescale that would allow us to rescale artboard/pages into different sizes without breaking everything but i enjoyed doing this
  9. Hello Team ! Hello Everyone ! Glad to make this suggestion for the good of Affinity and Designers or just Users who joined the move and those considering to join the move. My point is about not killing things that we already love but making them even better and i hope this won't become a troll. To my sight, the celebrissime Liquify Persona need to be reviewed and improved, boosted or upgraded (take it as you want). Actually, a persona is not just something we click at but it is an identity to a type of Designer/ Creative Person/People and it is time to make it reflect those of
  10. Hello Team Well i have couples of suggestions for what i call "The Persona Improvements". Well it is nothing as serious as the title is but more like me looking into things with different sight. 1- The Tone Mapping persona is lacking of a Global Reset button or function that allows the user to reset anything done there without leaving the Persona, i ask this because the Tone Mapping Persona have default behavior of applying the latest used Preset and apply it to a newly loaded picture, so having a Reset Global button will help us have a picture that is not directly changed and for
  11. Hello Team I don't know if this is a bug or something else as i didn't worked with the batch function before but i've found that it is not possible to drag & drop photos from the Finder to the Batch Job window. it is only possible to put files there by clicking add and selecting desired files. if it is a bug Please Fix (it will make life even easier) if it is a missing feature then sorry for posting here (i just hope you will make it happen) Blessings !
  12. Hi @MEB Is the latest version of Nik compatible with Affinity photo beta .110? Would like to give it a run and see if it does what people said it does.
  13. Thank You @fde101 I'm exploiting right now a hack that may give me similar results but i still maintain this request. if in any case the devs find out they need to improve something with the already existing tools then please just do and update the community. Also there is a 1h30min long FREE course from @IsabelAracama on the PEN Tool that anyone here will find useful check it here FREE Course - Pen Tool (Skillshare) Blessing to y'All and let's keep improving.
  14. Hello Team ! Back again with this topic which i think i more a question than a suggestion. Well ! A curvature tool is something we find in Ai which make certain type of drawing easy to achieve. We have not a tool like that with Affinity Designer i know but the Pen tool was recently over boosted for better satisfaction. is there a way (using the pen tool and one of its current fucntions) to create shapes similar to what can be created with the curvature tool ? if Yes please share the trick and link a video here so we can learn. if No then i suggest Devs to tweak the Pen t
  15. Hello Team ! Today i just want to make a suggestion which maybe you have received from other users already, if it is not the case then ... let's keep moving on. Live preview are great things that i believe can be expand accross many most used functions such as Boolean Operations and Alignment & Distribute. Well sometime doing a vector design we may want to cut shapes or combine or do whatever passes by our brain and find ourself stuck in the Do-Undo because we are missing the right tool etc... One would say : Learn ! I would answer: it is okay to learn but sometime hard to
  16. Hello People ! i'm happy to come back here today to share this quick one with you. if you have been following the progress, you should know that I've drastically transformed my workflow to include new way to achieved things thus building new skills. The journey is exiting, really exiting and this is all powered by the Affinity Suite in it's current beta cycle. Great thanks to the Serif Team for the software suite. hope you will recruit the right guys to help better the software. Well, i've been trusted again by Perez Chapel Foucks, that local church in my town for Bachelor
  17. Hello Everyone ! Hello Team ! Today i'm coming with this clear suggestion: Could Serif start making (and inviting) peoples and users to live webinar or YouTube Live which will be more organized like Masterclasses ? What's the point for this ? Well, in fact it is not bad to have short courses or content like the one we see and have on the respective YouTube channels (Photo, Designer and Publisher) but when it comes to really practical way of all this ... it gets really complicated i mean, if i want to achieve a project using APhoto and i want to process some massive Dodge and Burn
  18. Dear @Wosven now I know it is you, my notebook could go without that deep insight you always show. Dear @haakoo thank you so much for sharing that topic, I'll learn from it. Blessings
  19. Hi @MEB Happy to read that but please will that DAM be included (kind of persona) into APhoto or will it be a complete total separate software. I would be glad to have it hadone a persona and not have to download something else that may lead to much headaches and learning again. Please get inspired by Luminar 3 and Capture One Pro 12 and the way they implemented it while making the affinity DAM much attractive, easy to learn and use, not a resources consuming thing but more intelligent and powerful. All this is reachable as you are a team of genius. Blessings !
  20. Hello @AdamW From what I know and have seen so far, in Design becomes a book / magazine editing monster when it is teamed with inCopy. Do you have plans for a mass text editor like that ? I mean, inCopy allows large team to come together in the writing side while designers focus on the layout side. Being able to hire seasonal typing assistants who will work from a dedicated module of publisher and just submit their input to fit with the global layout which can be reviewed by the project manager or any other teal manager would be great and make us feel like using a limited sof
  21. Hi @Wosven I tried to make it more visible but it became really... I'm surprised this one went straight no special comment from you. I'm maybe missing something here. But thank you for being present. Blessings
  22. Hello People ! Kind of busy actually but back with this quick one. i was trusted to help a local church to get their Facebook palette of stuffs (banners, etc ) aligned to their central campus. So what you see here is more like a redo of their global design for which they had no source files sent to them, so i had to draw with designer, work with photo and consolidate with Publisher ( i always use this one for export and couples of stuffs). Tell me your impressions and what you think can be improved, maybe i will get chance to discuss their global concept and bring some changes in
  23. Hello @GarryP So glad to read from you on this one. Well, this ike the other ones is more experimental of new tendancy that i'm not really aquinted with but you are right. i wished we could have a function better than the most renowned content aware (crop, inPaint etc...) my idea was to replicate subject environment left and right and get all this more balanced but could not do that. So maybe here you or anyone here can advice me how to extend a picture left or right using content aware method of work with affinity photo; it would be really helpful, Everything you said is of g
  24. Hello Peoples ! I'm back with this quick project i've done for a seasonal accessories reseller in my town. Please check it as the previous one and tell me what you find not okay and how you would make it better. This project was done with : Affinity Photo Public Beta (For everything Pixels) Affinity Designer beta (for everything Vector) Affinity Designer (For everything layout and export) + Luminar 3 was used for its good capability to export in JPEG for social networks (Whatsapp + Facebook) Color + Luminance Boost was done using Luminar 3 Ai en
