  1. I have placed an image inside an object made of curves, and it only shows inside one of the curves. Could you point me in the right direction please? I achieved this after many attempts using the 'insert inside selection' tool in both Designer and Photo, and this is the first time it shows inside one of the elements, but I would like it inside all elements! Thank you! Screen Recording 2019-10-23 at 13.19.17.mov
  2. thanks so much for your help with this @R C-R and @walt.farrell I now have correctly sized images and I know the things to check going forward
  3. Brilliant. This works for me too I keep having problems with file sizes so now I know what to look out for. Thanks so much for your help!
  4. Hello, I'm trying to save a file so it's under 150kb, and I must be doing something wrong when I try to reduce the size. When I save my Affinity Designer document as a JPG with embed metadata unchecked, it's 577.53kb compared with the document with metadata checked which is 580.56kb. The best I can get, with quality set at 0, is 546.64kb. Could you advise me what I should do to get the image under 150kb please? thank you! BeccaT .
  5. Perfect. Simple solution now that I know where to find it. Thanks so much @Joachim_L :)
  6. Hello, I can't see the content in a document I'm working on - it shows as outline only. The layers panel shows that the content is still there. I must have clicked something and I can't find what I've done. When I go back through 'history' the outlines on the document change, but I can't find a way to see the content itself. I hope the screen snip below shows what I'm trying to explain as I haven't found the right words to articulate my problem for a search on the forum page. thanks in advance!
  7. thank you so much @John Rostron @haakoo @gdenby @v_kyr for the different options which are so helpful. For info, I used the vector with gradient fill, adding 0.1px gaussian blur/alpha protected which achieved exactly the result I was looking for
  8. Hello I have used the 'rainbow' default style, which is wonderful, but I don't wan't the bright yellow pinpoint in the centre. I've tried various different ways to replace the pixel at the centre (10 9 100 0) with the adjacent pixel (21 7 100 0), but am getting nowhere. I have AfD and AfP and haven't found the right search terms to express my problem to find the solution, so have started a new thread. I hope you can help? Thank you!
  9. Thanks so much @Alfred ! I have now changed the file to a PDF, which keeps the CMYK colours when I use it as a brush
  10. Hello Sorry to come back with another question. I have checked my document settings - thanks for the suggestion @reglico - I had thought they were the same but in fact the original file was 'print' and the file with the strip was 'print (press-ready)'. So I changed them both to 'print (press-ready)' . I seem to be having some problem between these two file settings though. Either way, I still have the same colour change problem: the stripe document used to create the png is a different CMYK colour when it is used as a brush. Is this something like the logo thread your shared @summersara? If you have any ideas about what else to check, that would be great. Thank you! This is the file used to create the stripes, showing document set up and CMYK number This is the document setup for the png file that is imported to create the stripe image brush This is the document setup for the file where I've used the stripe brush, and the colour picker shows the change in CMYK colour.
  11. Hello Thanks to your help previously I have a lovely coloured stripe stroke I must still be doing something wrong though: the stroke drawing does not create the same CMYK colours that are in the original affinity designer and png files. Do you have recommendations? Perhaps document settings that I've missed or something else? I hope you can help. Thank you!
  12. Hello @PixelPest does the approach for creating a stripe brush work for coloured stripes? I substituted a 6 colour stripe for the black and white stripes in your instructions. This created a greyscale stripe when I used the png image for the stroke (screen snip attached). The png image displays as colour when I use it with the fill tool as a bitmap, but unfortunately this approach doesn't follow the cues of my stroke. I'm guessing the problem will be something to do with a setup that I've got wrong, as the standard png images like 100 scarf and 128 rope are also greyscale when I use them. My document is set up as CMYK and I have changed this to the other options to see if that solved the problem and it doesn't. Hoping you can help? Thank you! Thank you so much @summersara and @reglico . What a wonderful simple solution. It's easy when you know how
