  1. CartoonMike, Thanks so much for the Pumpkin tutorial. Looks amazing. Can't wait to work through it, Be well!
  2. Hello, I started but never finished this amazing book when still using CS6. I know that Affinity Photo contains many of the same or similar functions as PS, so working through the book with AP seems reasonable. Has anyone here used AP to work on projects from Katrin Eisman's Masking & Compositing book? If so, any insights to share? Cheers!
  3. I think you've confirmed my decision to have a common folder for brushes, etc., but have also pointed to many other useful options to make restoring the apps a breeze during a future clean or new installation. Thanks!
  4. Hello, I recently started organizing the various Resources available here as well as PSD brushes and AI ASE swatch libraries. Separate Photo and Designer folders were set up in my Documents folder with subfolders for brushes, colors, gradients, and styles. At some point, I realized that the brushes can be imported into both Photo and Designer. Same with colors, gradients, and styles. This changed my folder structure to one set common to both applications: Brushes, Colors, etc. Palettes are imported as needed rather than having a long list of application palettes in each document. Does this make sense? How are other users organizing their resources? Thanks, Wally
  5. Thank you for that! I'm comfortable looking for stuff in various place such as Application Support, and Preferences. This is the first time I've had reason to look inside the Container folder. Thanks again.
  6. Hello, Saving presets in the various panels - Basic, Details, Tones - is easy enough. But where are they actually located on the computer? I'm asking because I want to be able to back them up in case I need to restore them after a clean installation of my system. As of today: Mac OSX 10.11.6 Thank you, Wally

  10. Hi Peter, Thank you for the links. Best, Wally
  11. Hello, New Affinity Designer user here. Used Deneba Canvas from v 3.5 through 10. Switched to Adobe CS3 when Mac development of Canvas ceased. Was ok with paying Adobe the upgrade fees. Became outraged with the subscription-only option. My graphics use is primarily for constructing presentation visuals mostly from scratch. There are many months of each year that I'm not using any graphics tools. Why pay a monthly fee for that??? I'm incredibly excited to be get up to speed with the Affinity suite of tools while continuing to use CS6 for the time being. Archiving is a big deal. There's a dual-boot G4 here to run OS9 and OS X 10.4.x. Talk about a mind-numbing legacy conversion campaign lasting several months! Soon there will be Mac set up to run CS6 in the future when needed. It is clear to me based on my short time with Affinity Designer, that it and Affinity Photo will be my tools of use in the very near future. I'm self taught and not a graphics pro. A couple of samples here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/20203707/Therapy/00_Cover.pdf https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/20203707/Therapy/03i_U.B.%20slowRoll%2Bcapsule%232.pdf Looking forward to following your road map of development. Best regards, Wally
