  1. Thank you for putting this together. I've found a lot of the changes but I'm sure you've mentioned some that I haven't even noticed. Have a wonderful holiday season. Nancy
  2. As a side benefit to asking this question, I've now discovered the Transform panel. I didn't realize that it was in the Studio. I've seen it referred to before but couldn't locate it. I use Affinity a lot but realize that I have only scratched the surface of its features. Thanks again for the answer and the extra information. Nancy
  3. Thank you both for the information. I've been using Affinity Photo since it came out and have taken a few online courses, but I didn't know about all this. That is a great video and it looks like fun. Now I've read more in the Help, and tried a few things on my own. Sometimes you can't find what you want in Help because you don't know the correct terms to look for. You've opened up a whole new area of exploration for me. Nancy
  4. Wow, that was fast! Thank you Garry. I've struggled with this for a long time. Nancy
  5. Is it possible to use the elliptical marquee tool to select an object that is at an angle, instead of vertical or horizontal? I often use this tool to slightly highlight the face of my subject and sometimes I want to tip the selection so that it fits my subject better. I've seen Photoshop videos where they do this but I can't figure out how to do it in Affinity Photo. Thanks, Nancy
  6. I am using Affinity Photo 1.10.5 and I would like to be able to rotate an object 60 degrees. I am using the Move tool and when I get the curved pointer and drag, I get to 59.7 and then it jumps to 60.2 and I go back and forth trying to stop on 60.0. Is there some setting in the Transform panel that I haven't found that allows me to enter the exact number? This also happens when I am trying to resize an object to match the size of another one. Thank you, Nancy
  7. Thank you, All Media Lab. I hadn't gone deep enough into the folders to get to PS_Plugins_x64. It's working now. Cheers, Nancy
  8. I am using the latest AI version. I only have a 250 GB SSD drive for my programs, so I installed my Topaz programs on drive D:. I asked Topaz about it and they said to try it there. My Topaz programs are working properly, so I left it there. I did add that path to the Plugin Search Folders. Nancy
  9. I would like to be able to go to Topaz DeNoise from inside Affinity Photo. In the Photoshop Plugins section of preferences I added the directory where I have installed DeNoise, but even though I have checked "Allow unknown plugins" and restarted Affinity, no plugins are showing up. I am using Windows 10 and AP 1.10.4. Thank you for any help you can give me. Nancy
  10. I just noticed that the brushes that I have installed are no longer available. I haven't used any lately so I don't know which update did this. Also, the free assets of snow, rain, etc. that I downloaded from Affinity are no longer there. Is this normal when you apply an update? If so, is there a way to retain them? I've done updates before and never had this happen. Nancy
  11. Thanks for clarifying that. I don't do it often--mostly I am exporting a smaller version, and I have been resampling only when I export, not earlier. Nancy
  12. Thank you for the explanation, Timo. I was talking about doing it to make my document larger, but from what you say it sounds as if I can wait until I am exporting and just increase the pixel size then--and choose my resample method. That is good to know. I've copied your explanation into my notes for future reference. Take care, Nancy
  13. I've been reading posts about upsampling because I want to find which method to choose to get the best results. However, I notice that you choose a resample method when you resize a document, and then again when you export it for printing or viewing. Is the file being resampled again? If I select Bicubic when I resize, this doesn't necessarily come up as the choice when I export--the export resample is the method I used last time and I have to change it to Bicubic. Thanks, Nancy
  14. Thank you for responding. I've been playing around with some of the other styles and filters that you mention in the tutorial and have learned a lot. Affinity Photo is a great program and there is always some new technique to learn. Nancy
  15. To save a color or gradient to a palette: On the Swatches panel, select a palette from the palette pop-up menu. Do one of the following: -click an object, then from the pop-up menu, click Add to Swatches and choose to add color from fill, stroke or both. Select Add current color to palette. Use the Stroke/Fill color selector to target the color. Thank you very much. I looked in the Help and I searched online and in the forum, and I just didn't get it! Once you extract this little part from all the rest, it all becomes clear. Nancy
