  1. +1 I like this one but ... why a line if like you said one pixel is sometimes hard to distinguish. A rounded or square would be more visible. And this look like the one from Adobe but much thinner though I like it's gradient color which is inovative. Good idea
  2. Hello Peoples ! I've been working on a photo project and needed to remove some blemish then ... found that the dedicated tool for that have some limitations that needs to improved. Okay ! let's compare it with the inPainting tool menu and we will see that for manual work there are really missing stuffs in there, exemple: - BRT can't process Non-Destructively yet (which is not a good thing if we work out of develop persona) - BRT doesn't offer pen presure in order to control the thing - BRT is not that area/content aware as it should be - BRT in the develop persona always displ
  3. Hello Peoples, Hello Team ! Well today i want to raise a point that we often skip as we move on to more cool and nice Affinity stuffs and that point is: Layer color setup ! Yes often want to make better organization of our layers and marking them with appropriated colors (personal way to code this and that) is often what we tend to do but ! The actual way to do that is a bit of ... not as bad but ... too long and too burried/hidden : Right Click on the layer - scroll down to properties then proceed ! Now let's think of it in a different way. (that's the purpose of this sugg
  4. Well thanks i can see that ! it is not a problem, my channel too is outdated for 3months now. Still need to learn more about video montage and get some nice ideas to put on video. Will watch your contents from now dear ! Blessings
  5. dear @Allan Thompson your work is great and i appreciate this but still need to figure it out a bit more ! BTW your Youtube channel is not existing ... are you sure you put the right url ? Blessings !
  6. Hello @Wosven Could not expect less than what you put together in your comment. Really helpful ! As i told you, the project is still open and the requester said nothing yet but surely will do so very soon. the idea behind this type of business cards is simply to unveil the person or personality behind, to reveal that nice person to others. it has more meaning than this simple one i gave you but at least you the idea. i will try to put your advises in practice and propose some new revamps and which one the guy takes. Thank you for your input.
  7. Hello Peoples ! Don't you think it is time for Serif to implement a learning mode into Affinity software ? i mean the learning more is very useful for new comers who may want learn the software by themselves for basic and complex operations. This can be backed up with official tutorials etc... but the real change would be for those offline to be directed in an interactive mode one they activate the learning mode. it can droping the learning curve as many are coming from PS or Ai and uses quite different terminology than we do and learning mode can help make the switch even better an
  8. Nice topic ! I also found the magnetic selection tool to not work as expected and it seems the tool decides what is good to be selected even if i force it to select what i wanted. Well i skipped the report and switched to polygonal selection tool that does a better work and you can refine the sharp corner by using the smooth selection in the Selection menu and just increase percentage/pixels and you will get something much better. But Magnetic should become more intelligent and ore usable, far more then what we actually have. Blessings !
  9. Hello Peoples, Hello Friends ! Today find a new one i'm working on. Well it took it to share this one prior i close with the requester because your advises are valuable to me. Again a Business card, peoples seems to like this concept. Tell me what you like and what you think can make it even better vs what you dislike and think i should change or remove completely. But first i want to have your inputs in order to better this. This other one was made with 100% beta version of Affinity Suite. Blessings !
  10. Dear ! That doesn't matter at all; the most important thing is where you are now and the right choice you have made ! Also added the joy that procure your presence in this community. Blessings !
  11. depending on your config and the amount of time you plan to invest into learning or doing videos i would advice you go for : Filmora 9 or Filmora Pro. Personally i like Filmora Pro it is still new but most of things you can do with premiere you can do with it and not only that Filmora Pro uses less resources on both plateform while you may not easily run or work with Premiere which may lead you to buy another computer (i don't think that what you want). Camtasia is also another good software but only if you plan to deliver educational contents such tutorials, courses etc... that really roc
  12. Hello @Wosven As always, it is a pleasure to read from you as you deliver good advises. Well the requester picked the one in the wallet already, he preferred that one but i like really like all points you brought to the light and they are very useful. I have another concept coming in few days and will surely take your advises into account. Well for the picture ... he said: i don't like photos too much so just work on this one ! i agree its not the mood we have when talking about wedding etc. Thank you so much and to everyone looking at this topic and giving advises that he
  13. Hello Peoples ! Just want to know if it is possible to do a content aware crop or/and content aware fill with Affinity. if No ! did someone achieve something similar using one of the available tools ? Please share if you succeeded with this so can learn and apply. in case of 100% then it would be a great functionality to add. Blessings !
  14. Hello Peoples! Happy to read this. Well i would advice you better go crowdfund AKIRA which is targeting to be the first Linux Design software (100% dedicated) and then from that act ask the dev team of AKIRA to make it possible to work on multiple file format including Affinity file format and make their format readable and usable with Affinity thus making AKIRA a good mate. You can learn more about AKIRA here : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/alecaddd/akira-the-linux-design-tool Blessing !
  15. Thanks @MEB so Serif will go the DAM route ? Happy to read that (if i'm right) but please make it to be far more the best DAM ever. Dono't forget to make it connect with everything Affinity installed on the same machine, Right click open with Photo or Send to Publisher etc... Love that !
  16. Hello People ! i'm back in this topic today to share a quick job i've done recently for a young DJ from Paris in France. Well it is only a Business card model ! He's specialized in Christian music but also does some IT works but the point was clearly on music. i will share two mockups i have made for him and you feel free to tell which one you would have chose and also please leave some inputs of what you would have changed in there to make it better. All was done with current Beta version of Affinity Suite, nothing stable version was used. it is my way of testing to find if there
  17. Hi Dear ! well its actually depends on the kind of Job you are intended to do. When you read about Luminar they say it is not a Photo retouch software at the level of Photoshop nor APhoto that's the reason why even you ask a lot they will reply to you that they can't add tools that you enjoy using both with Ps and APhoto. So it is clear that Luminar 3 plays in another area and is not a challenger to APhoto, you can only compare it to Lightroom because they both plays in the same pool. APhoto is not only a Photo compositor but also a Photo Manipulation software which is intended to h
  18. Hello @BluestarCK Happy to read your question ... didn't checked if it was on the right or the wrong thread but until the admin moves it if they have to, let me drop my input. if you want something that works, that is no expensive and does thing even better than LightRoom ... go for Luminar 3 from Skylum (Ex Macphun). They have released a version of Luminar that you can download and try for 30 days (fully no restrictions) from their website. Believe me you will like and enjoy it. i'm often adding Luminar to my Pixel workflow because it has the two amazing : Ai enhancer filter +
  19. Hello dear Heroes ! i'm back here with this quick share. Just a fast design for church activities but the most important thing to note here is the teaming used to build it. Affinity Designer for Vectors Affinity Photo for everything Pixels Affinity Designer for the layout and the export (here i used the last published version of APub) Photo from Pixabay.com No major issues found and no crash ! As usual, please leave me your inputs telling what you would see changed or much better designed if it was You ! Blessings !
  20. it is okay but it is hidden thus making it not the first thing to think about ! What i ask is a more present thing something we have right before us and we can eassily remember about ! Thanks a lot for pointing to that as many will now know there is such a menu/tool and use less Adobe color stuff.
  21. The biggest challenge I had with this project was with complementary colors. We really need a tool that makes it easier to find or generate those and not strugglewith external tools from Adobe etc. Please team,build a dedicated tool that will manage colors in an assistant style so we can figure out but very easily what colors we can work with on a project and not do the Arc-en-Ciel thing !
  22. Hello @Wosven really this is the kind of advice i'm looking for ! I'm okay with this and you are right, btw i will try it and see if i can update here. Well you are right here too and i will see how to fix this, the original picture that you see was taken from a phone by a young girl in her room then shared through Telegram messenger in compression mode ... it was 78.2kB only so just imagine how much details was lost. But, your comments make me think i need to organize another retouch and bring some softness in there. Blessings !
  23. Hello everyone ! i'm back today with a quick one i wanted to share with you here ! Well it is something that only is concentrated on my pixel Technics learning process, i had an image before me and though i could use it to apply some of the nice Technics I've learned around the internet. i essentially used: * HSL adjustment layer * Lasso Tool * inPainting tool * Level adjustment layer * Clarity Live filter * High Pass Live filter The core layout was created unto Affinity Publisher Beta All Pixel works was done with Affinity Photo then placed into the project
  24. Hello everyone ! not sure this is the right place to post this but i found it to be the only place global suggestion goes and i take the opportunity to share my recent idea here. Well, i think it is time for Serif to develop a lace similar to Behance on its infrastructure. Designers, Photographs, illustrators and those working in the publishing industry using the Affinity range of products will be interested into this. it will also make it easier for those who have no knowledge or simply have no time of building their portfolio website/page to find a place where they feel at home.
