  1. It's tiresome to hear the same folks whining and putting Serif down continuously but still showing up here. Is it too much to be able to empathize with a company that is putting out a version 1x product after a few years, with a few dozen people making this happen? They aren't obligated to make x feature just for you or me, despite the fact that envelope distortion would make my life a zillion times better and make me an Affinity whore for life.. If you wish to support them with your money, do so. If not, Adobe, Corel, etc exist too. We try to be a bit more professional here because many of us ARE professional (designers, painters, etc) and tired of the constant bombardment of hate from the rest of the 'net. If you hate Serif that much, by all means, go pay 600 bucks a year and you will get every single feature you want (lol) custom made just for you by thousands of Adobe employees over the 20 years they've been pumping out these products. You could always apply for a job and help get Serif on 'the right track' In the meantime, useful solutions and tips for people to work around the issue would be a better use of time than waxing existential about how Serif is committing grave wrongs against your person. Inkscape still does pretty much everything AI can do, albeit with an unpleasant UI to deal with. Photopea is another one that is great for envelope warping. Anyone else have useful suggestions for products that can help with this until the day some of us have been patiently awaiting?
  2. Sounds like maybe you're saving/exporting as a .jpg You have to save it as a .png to retain transparency. Hope this helps!
  3. I struggle with light and shadow sometimes. The tip about using Posterize to see exactly where areas of light and shadow are is the BEST tip I've gotten in a while, THANK YOU!!! This tip alone is going to make my art so much better now!
  4. Thank you for the tip! I would have started with VB, so I'm glad you mentioned this. I'll be sure to research beforehand which distros work best with it. Thanks again!
  5. Thank you! I've just about had enough of Windows 10 and I miss Linux terribly
  6. Just curious if one could run Affinity products in a Win or Mac virtual machine on a Linux computer?
  7. indeed JGD does, as we all do, hopefully while keeping perspective.
  8. Thank you! I'm thinking about the ipad pro 11 or the 2019 Air. It will be my first foray into Apple land so I haven't decided yet. Price is very much a factor so I will take a while to think on it or until i see a Black Friday deal lol Thank you for your opinion!
  9. Everything is going to take longer to implement. The Affinity team is smaller by the Adobe team by thousands of people so it's not hard to see that things are going to take longer. At the price point, I'm happy to wait and use my imagination and that of my fellow designers here to use workarounds and incorporate other software into my workflow until Affinity matures, which is going to be a VERY long time from now because (see 2nd sentence). It's not a broken project, it's an immature one, not unlike this conversation. There's always Adobe and Corel and their thousands of employees to help you out if Affinity isn't for you.
  10. just my ''typical luck'' I shouldn't have mentioned it; I jinxed it! Hopefully it doesn't break until after a solution comes to Affinity. Crap, i probably shouldn't have said that either.
  11. may I ask which ipad this is? I was looking into downsizing from a desktop computer and I'd like to know how effective this is for workflow as an artist/designer etc if can pick your brain a bit :)
  12. We call them hedgehogs They're quite adorable and affectionate, despite their sharp bodies so we also call them pokey piggies and ouch mouse Great tip for gradient maps!!
