  1. Good day! I know there is a way to turn this base selection box into a regular selection box. But that's just temporary. Is it possible to keep the regular selection box forever? Base selection box is not always necessary, actually less necessary than the regular one. Any kind of help would be highly appreciated

    My new vector illustration

    Affinity designer is about 2 hours of work. I hope you will like it.
  3. Well it's THAT time of year again, and there's no avoiding it... This month, create something related to the holiday season. This could be a photo of a Christmas Tree or a Christmas lights display, a wintry landscape, your dog in a Santa hat etc. If you're looking for an extra challenge, try to work in some unusual angles or experiment with depth of focus. When posting, if you can, please also write a sentence of two on the editing techniques you used or the filters you applied, so that we can learn from each other. Alternatively, create something in Designer or Publisher that expresses 'December'. This could be a holiday greeting card, a gift-wrapped box, Santa's reindeers crossing a starry sky, etc etc. If your style is more 'Christmas Grinch' than 'Santa's Little Helper' (no judgement here), create a photo or piece of art that channels 'Mid-winter', or 'the shortest day'. (Apologies to people in the Southern Hemisphere - maybe you could do the longest day and make us northies jealous of your fine weather!) We had some gorgeous pics last month, and I hope more of you can find the time to join in again. Let's see what you've got!
  4. Hi all! I've run into a couple weird issues that may or may not be related: I can't update either Designer or Photo because the App Store claims I don't own them(??). Designer is stuck at v1.6.1, and Photo is on v1.6.7. When opening a new document in Designer, the canvas will shift to the right a bit visually but not functionally. This means I have to sort of 'feel around' slightly to the left of things to do anything. This occasionally happens when opening existing documents too. I've tried restarting the app, restarting the computer, creating documents in different modes (photo, print, rgb, cmyk, and every other variable I can think of), and nothing changes. I've included screenshots pointing out the weird offset, and a photo of the cursor needing to be slightly to the left of anything to select it. I really appreciate you all taking a look at this and helping me brainstorm solutions. This issue is super frustrating and really slows me down. :/ Thanks you!

    251 Series

    After near 2 months resting, I am going to paint again, and I am learning how to draw with Affinity and Wacom, it's cool. And what's more, there is one thing recently makes me very angry, Huawei 251 issue, so it makes me to start my new series —— against 251, it's least I can do. This paint is the first one of 251, it's a copy from pinterest.

    Some lettering examples

    Here is some of my lettering experiments in Affinity software.
  11. One amazingly effective command in Photoshop and Photo is Edit -> Fade (PS) or Layer -> Fade (AP). Whatever effect or brush you just applied can be reduced. Sometimes you overdid fx the colors or contrast. Sometimes you made a little error. You fade it to fx 70% and it looks correct. You can also fade and change blend mode. Much better and effective than undoing and re-applying. When working with the paint brush tool and pixel brushes in the Pixel Persona it happens very often that I miss this fade feature. It is very hard to predict the result. Same feature in Affinity Photo:

  13. Hello, I have seen a couple of similar posts addressing this issue, but I've tried all the solutions shown and they haven't worked. A couple of times now, a downloaded stock image from Shutterstock has presented annoying thin lines around masks on the image. They show when exported, too. You can see them pretty clearly in the screenshot I attached, in the darker gray clouds. In other areas of the image, I've hidden the masks and fixed the issues, but I can't do that here; it really alters the image. I have "use precise clipping" turned on, and I've tried editing the blend mode of the masks, and nothing has fixed it. Help? Thanks so much.
  14. 1. Hello, friends. First of all i want to describe glitch. I have a design with two elements in one group. I make bevel FX adjustments to one of it. Then i copy one element with adjusted FX and then use for my group - Edit/Paste FX command. The settings for bevel FX are changed a lot and overall effect looks completely different. I dont check other FXs - it need to be checked additionally. Why the RADIUS from 36px becomes 639,6px and SOFTEN value from 2px becomes 35,5px ? Source FX values are multiplied by the same value in destination layer FX, the value is 17,75 . Look at this - 2*17,75 = 35,5px and 36*17,75=639,6px. Hmm, what an obstacles (software or hardware) to put 36px as 36px and to put 2px as 2px? I can still enter the requested FX values for the group manually - and it looks like it have to be - the same, as it looks for individual elements in group. The FX engine has the same functionality for group of layers, as for the single layer. It works with group and single layers without any limitations in FX functionality. The FX values must to be transferred from one object to another without any changes/distortions i think )))
  15. Hello, friends. First of all i want to describe glitch. I have a design with two elements in one group. I make bevel FX adjustments to one of it. Then i copy one element with adjusted FX and then use for my group - Edit/Paste FX command. The settings for bevel FX are changed a lot and overall effect looks completely different. I dont check other FXs - it need to be checked additionally. SUGGESTION - why not to place Paste FX in drop down commands for the Layer tabs - as on my screenshot? It will be more handy and logical - where you work with FX, adjust, copy and paste them in one window ..... maybe )))
  16. One of the most beautiful car designs of modern times. 100% vector drawing. Work in progress. Used lots of custom gradients and transparencies. Also Gaussian blurring and 3D effects. Stages 1 - 16 Stage 16 Dec 9 2019
  17. Hey, while I was looking for new practice projects, I found a little windmill which I recreated. For me as a beginner, it was quite hard to deal with the colors, especially in the shade. For the speedart video itself, I prepared a color palette so I don't have to find the colors again.
  18. Hey, So I created a palette and exported them as a afpalette file. Unfortunately, it is not saved in cleartext. Is there a way to get the fill name (I created custom names) and their corresponding color in text format? Many thanks in advance.
