    Adding the snowflakes as Assets seems straight forward enough.... only thing I find not great, is the snowflakes on the light gray background barely show up... it'd be cool if one could control or set the background color somehow to 'see' the assets better. Just a thought.
  2. Studio panels... both for AD and AP I'd love to see the Typography panel be made available as a dock-able panel, so that it could fit alongside the Character and Paragraph panels as well as being a separate window. Just seems to make sense to have it another tab alongside the other text formatting panels. And, there's times I really wish the Studio panel AND/OR some of the panels had a scrollable length. There are times I simply cannot see enough of the panel info and scrolling would help. Thanks – Timber

    Affinity Photo Customer Beta (1.6.6 - Beta 7)

    One other interesting thing, when I switched from Light UI mode to Dark UI mode, initially the selected tool keeps a light gray highlight. If I clicked on it again, it went back to the Darker highlight mode. I've gotta tell you, the lighter highlighted tool stands out far quicker to my eye than the darker highlight. See screen shots below.

    Affinity Photo Customer Beta (1.6.6 - Beta 7)

    One minor bug... tried going to Develop persona, wanted to go back to Photo persona without changing anything, dialog box comes up saying "Please either commit or cancel the develop operation before switching to another Persona".... clicking cancel in this dialog box does nothing. One would expect it to go to the Photo persona as the dialog box seems to indicate.
  5. I can make a clipping path, put a color fill layer above, and then use Color blend mode to change the color, but I'd like to clean up the underlaying irregular surface without losing the clapboard horizontal lines and other details. i.e. make it look like a clean even surface paint job but again showing board delineations and details. Suggestions?
  6. Hi, see the attached AP photo file. Want to be able to show this as if it had a decent coat of paint on it. What's the best method of achieving a sample showing it as if it's freshly painted? It surely needs it, but the idea is to show how much nicer it'd look with a paint job. Thanks! House.afphoto

    Affinity Photo Customer Beta - 1.6.5 (Beta 5)

    Almost a full month later and the current beta 1.6.5 (Beta 5) is still not usable on OS X Mavericks. No even worth trying to test other functions as it's so badly crippled. Hope to see a fixed beta real soon. Encouraging the next beta update, please! – Timber
  8. Hi Oval, I missed that announcement. Glad to hear it's a known issue and being worked on. Cheers – Timber
  9. Completely hosed. No tools, no Studio panels, cannot create New Document, really odd behavior, this and the current build of AP Mac too behave this way on OS X 10.9.5 Mac, early versions of Betas were fine, current release App store builds run fine. Just these last betas of AD and AP Mac. - Timber

    Affinity Photo Customer Beta - 1.6.5 (Beta 5)

    Wow, all kinds of problems with this build, completely unusable. No tools, no Studio windows, no preferences access, splash screen never closes. Strange behaviors in AD beta too! Just nothing works right. Mac OS Mavericks 10.9.5, Betas at least worked up to this point. - Timber

    No further development?

    I think too the previous fast pace of newer beta releases and updates, prior to adding the Windows and iPad versions of the apps, got everyone spoiled. That was very impressive, but it's also very understandable with the expanded product releases that things need to be crossed checked and make sure the code base functions properly across the various platforms now. I think the programmers are doing a great job and encourage all to sit tight and wait for the goodies. I'm sure the programmers want to add to these programs prowess as much as we all want to see that happen too. Meanwhile, there's still so much I learn all the time that I can do with the existing builds. Keep up the fantastic work guys and gals! and Thanks! – Timber

    Affinity Photo Customer Beta (1.6 - Beta 1)

    Also, as In AD I get a reliable crash every time I try to switch between Dark and Light UI or Light and Dark. in Affinity Photo Mac 1.6 Beta 1, using OS X 10.9.5 Mavericks. – Timber

  14. Affinity Designer Beta 2.1 Mac reliably crashes every time I go to switch between light UI and dark UI. Just like clockwork. 2.5 ghz Intel Core i5 with 8 GB ram.
  15. Hi all, since a tutorial for doing this magnificent work hasn't been made, that I'm aware of, I wanted to point out this video of a similar design that covers some of the techniques for realizing a car in Affinity Designer. Take a look at this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_-ZViQZwWQ Perhaps it will help some of us looking to up our game and achievement with AD. :) Cheers – Timber
