  1. The grayed out buttons on save or print is so generous thing to do. If that peice of intellectual property was so hard to share ... Keep it encrypted on your hard disk in the vault.
  2. I echo this. And after getting entire suite applications available from affinity on PC and iPad , I am HUGELY disappointed with the attitude of showing us samples ( I know they are samples and not templates ...so what ) with no editable content ...no other templates ...nothing. Pls keep the sample also .don't need that generosity. And someone tells us to export PDF from some program ( why should I buy another program ).
  3. Hi @Tom Schülke , Will it be possible for you to put a screen recording video of the workflow . Shall be greatly helpful for newbie users like me. Cheers !
  4. Here is another thread about architectural drawings rendering (Coloring ) :
  5. Useful thread. .issued this one earlier in my searches ( maybe due to 'Architects' German spelling version in the subject) Shall try this ASAP. Cheers .
  6. Update: Was able to improve on workflow by creating shapes or Pen tool for the floor areas which require bitmap pattern . Developed styles for various types of flooring to drop on these shape fills in fill gradient tool(with bitmap option in drop down menu) These flooring layers were kept below the furniture layers stack. Furniture layers was rendered without any pattern ,so used magic wand (or brush selection) there . To do this base layer was created by importing PDF and exporting it out in higher resolution. the base layer (line work) was kept on top with Multiply blend mode. Another thing to try shall be to keep text and line work separate ...and maybe avoid raterising text layers ...esp for smaller fonts . Krita colorize mask worked well in smaller plans...after splitting layers colour wise.....But, failed miserably in larger complicated layouts having tons of details . Cheers !
  7. Hi @gdenby , It was so nice of you put your time to create an example to help someone . Shall check the same and revert after trying the same. But the problem is that the shapes are not closed vector boundaries in Autocad most of the times . And the layout plan example I shared was 1/15th part of the whole floor plan , and making boundaries for each item is difficult in ever evolving layout plan drawings . Pattern fill shall be hugely useful..whenever it becomes available in Affinity-Photo . There is an option in Gradient-fill for bitmap ....but that is giving me some un-intended results ....maybe mostly due to my lack of knowledge about Affinity Photo.
  8. HI @Medical Officer Bones Nice name . Krita Colorise mask is interesting . Shall try it out and report. Need to see how it works with complex/large drawings..and if it has become stable enough for windows . But the issues is it needs another program to handle a small task . I am looking for a faster and easier way... maybe something like this :
  9. Thanks to everyone for sharing your suggestions . Here are some examples of what we generally do . The Plan is exported from Autocad as a PDF and thru magic-wand/flood fill the patterns are introduced . If there is any step-by-step Tutorial which once can refer to ? (Sorry for Low-res as I don't have source file on Laptop right now).
  10. Thanks John, Shall try once again. Though I have been thru these already ..
  11. Thanks @Aammppaa ! I saw your reply to the thread by @Tom Schülke ...and I can confirm that he is speaking for the large Architectural community worldwide which can be the potential User base for Affinity Photo if : a) There are proper tutorials to address the most common Architectural firms' workflows ... b) Affinity photos makes some concession in the product development for Architects as our requirements vary fro mthe the phtographers or Ilustrators . Cheers!
  12. I my limited understanding , The quickest way for ever changing layouts is to have flood fill and pattern fill . We need a workflow which is fast and easy for most of the team memebers who may have limited knowledge of graphic softwares as their core expertise is Autocad . There are various Tutorials for Photoshop, but cant find any for Affinity Photos .
  13. Hi All, A newbie query, But ..I guess, something that should helpful to large Architectural community... What shall be the better way to color Architectural drawings ( exported form autocad as PDF files ). We use shadows for the furniture to give depth illusion ... And also use pattern fill (in Photoshop) to give texture to different type of flooring patterns( carpets , wooden floor ,tiles etc.) ...or highlighting some areas . The pdf drawings imported have lot of text and dimensions at times . ... Having better flood fills selection easily and fast is important . If we get the same or better workflow as Photoshop , I shall be able to convince my office to give this software to everyone in the team. Regards. kay
  14. Hi, I have already purchased affinity ipad apps (photos and designer) and recently got Affinity photos on desktop too. Now I have installed Publisher beta to try it out...with the hope that I shall be able to convince people at my workplace to get these softwares in our office work-environment too . Regards, Y
