  1. FYI, this question has to do with AP: Looking at a recent image, I noticed some faint banding that was visible when I applied a color gradient (maybe it was there in the B&W version, but I couldn't see it). See the darker of these two images: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/20687-photos-from-a-mountaintop/(FWIW, I see the banding on my non-retina, late 2013 iMac; I haven't checked on other machines). Searching the forums I came across a comment about the "Dither Gradients" preference and the different effects if you are working in 8-bit or 16-bit (see MEB's comments in this thread: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/13742-unwanted-noise-in-gradients). So, my question: If I'm working in 16-bit, is it better to leave "Dither Gradients" preference checked? Or unchecked? Thanks, Darin
  2. When I convert a grayscale image to RGB then I get more available colours for working with this file. Is it useful to convert an 8-bit RGB image into 16 or 24-bit to increase its colour range when working on it? – Or do I work with an RGB image always in max. colours, and limit them only on Save or Export?

  4. Hello, I'm a web developer and somewhat of a beginner using design software. I have no problem extracting assets to use in development but actually creating things is new for me. Anyway, I'd like to create a series of icons or illustrations in an 8-bit pixel style. I'd like them to be vector based though so I can scale them in size easily. I have both Designer & Photo for Mac and am attempting it in Designer. I want to know if I'm going about this correctly. I started by creating a 500px x 500px artboard and set grid lines to be every 20px so that I have a grid of 25 x 25 squares. I created a 20px x 20px square layer for each section of the grid an duplicated them over and over until I had 625 of them covering the whole board. I filled them with various colors and had a large background layer behind the individual square as well. When I removed the grid lines though I noticed that the individual squares didn't seem to line up correctly even though they were snapping to my grid lines. It looks like the sample I attached. What should I do differently to create these square pixel illustrations? I'd like to be able to export to SVG as well.
