  1. Yes that was it. I guessed it would be obvious! Many thanks
  2. I am still learning this app. I have a gif file, I created a new pixel layer from the background and am trying to use the erase tool. I have the circle showing but it does nothing. afaics I do the same thing on a png or jpg and it erases as I expect. Does it not work with gif?
  3. I am trying to add a vignette to a png. I can make it black and white but however I apply the vignette nothing happens to the image. Is it because its a png?

    Background Colour

    Getting there. Many thanks

    Background Colour

    Yes, though not as blended as I'd like. But how did you get the rounded rectangle to be a gradient?

    Background Colour

    Thanks thats more or less what I ended up doing. I did find it hard to localise the 4 gradients (4 ides of the image) without affecting the image. Not quite the same as corel - I did it eventually though not completely satisfied with the result. I have attached the "starting point" before applying the gradients. I am trying to merge the 4 edges to the black background but am having trouble doing so without affecting the photo. I can get it so an edge bleds nicely but the photo is brightened or darkened but moving the boundary of the layer so it doesn't affect the image; affects the midpoint (which I can't seem to adjust once I have got to being able to move the edge of the gradient layer. Not too sure if my problems make sense but perhaps someone can have a go and I can see how to do it? header2.afphoto
  7. I want a photo to blend edges with a black background, using a gradient mask. Can I color the background or must I draw a background rectangle?

    Arrange resize objects?

    great, obvious now - knew it was possible somehow.
  9. Firstly, when creating a new topic I seem to be forced to select the iPad forum rather than the root general forum. I have to click off the pull down to see the continue button. I am used to Corel and PS so forgive my ignorance, I am sure I just havent found the funtionality I need yet. . In corel the arrange menu has an option to match widths as well as aligning objects. For instance, in Affinity Photo I have added a column of rectangles and am resizing them manually. I can arrange them to left, centre or right align but how do I make them match widths as well? I think the atached example is alright but not as easy to ensure equal widths as I'd hoped. about q3.afphoto

    Create a photo mosaic

    I thought it would be obvious. Thanks, works a treat.
  11. I have Affinity Photo and designer. Coming from Corel and Photoshop - I am struggling to start creating a photo mosaic. I actually want to put maybe 10 photos (landscape and portrait) in a single image. In corel I would just import them all and resize and rearrange accordingly but whilst designer allows me to create the correct sized artboard I can't see how bet to insert them. Open just opens separate instances. I really don't want to revert to corel so which app should I use and how?
  12. OK the video explained what I needed, mean median etc is how I tweak and yes more images!
  13. This is just an exercise but the two images I have used work well for several people but there are two ghosts. People only in one image but shosin translucently. What would be the recommended approach? _DSC6142-Edit (Medium).tif _DSC6143-Edit (Medium).tif
  14. OK just opened them both from Lightroom now I have two photos open. New stack opens a dialog to locate them on disk. Is there a way to add already open photos to a new stack?
