  1. Hello artists and creatives, I am posting three videos and 5 still frames of progress creating an artwork. More to come and post here in time for this. I have been struck by an Idea that may distract me a bit. I will continue this in a few days. Video part one - Video part two - Video part three -
  2. Browsing for something else, I came across a poster advertising Peugeot cycles, and I was inspired to have a go myself. After quite a few changes of colour and relative size, I finally settled for this: The original is A2 size, though I don't intend to print any copies. Here's a bigger (but not full size) crop: And here's the original tiger, which I made first. I dropped the orange markings for the poster, as the tiger clashed with the bike (and we have some gorgeous white tigers in the local zoo). Oh, and if you were wondering, Walsall is the English town I grew up in. It's not noted for its bikes, but is famous for its saddlery and leather goods, and lorinery, which is the metal bits and pieces in horse harness.
  3. Can we add one more tool to the boolean set? A "merge" tool like in illustrator? The current "add" tool reminds me a lot of the "Unite" tool in Illustrator. It's like a scorched earth approach where everything is combined into one shape with one set of properties. The "merge" tool in Illustrator allows object with differing attributes to cut into one another like a cookie-cutter does. Also, I can put a fill shape of another color behind a vector fill with a negative shape and it will essentially fill that negative space. This is such an essential part of my workflow. I watch others forced to fill objects when there is still a closed stoke or go back in afterward and re-draw the existing shapes as fills only. What about a live paint fill tool that does not require a continuous united path in order to fill it, but instead recognizes all four sides being closed in some way, whether by the same stroke or different overlapped strokes?
  4. Hey guys! - I'm just plugging a YouTube tutorial I did on how to create your own beskar steel using Affinity Photo & Affinity Designer. I've also got a few other tutorials up on my page that you might wanna check out. I suspect forum users are already pretty savvy to a lot of the techniques etc, but there may still be something of interest there for some of you. Hope everybody's doing well and hanging in there during these chaotic times. Cheers! Beskar Steel Tutorial
  5. Below is my list of written tutorials I have done over the years. The first few were done using early versions of Affinity programs but they should still be ok. Some menus may have changed or tools look different but the basics are the same. Also most are for Affinity Photo, but some could be done in Designer. Plus the "Beginners Look at Affinity Photo" ones will pretty much be the same in Affinity Designer and Publisher as all 3 programs have same basic functions.

It may work the same on iPad version but I don’t own one so can’t confirm that it will. It looks at what Styles are, how to make some Gradient Styles and some Styles made from images. Then how to Export and Import your newly made Styles. After that I do a basic overview of a couple of video tutorials I have made in the past. Using the Mirror Filter and the Equation filter to make new images, to then make Styles from. Lastly, another overview of a recent video tutorial, which looks at using the Vector Crop Tool in Affinity Designer to grab sections of an image to then make Styles from. The end of this PDF tutorial has interactive links to all the video tutorials and links to the downloads of all the Styles I have made in these video and written tutorials. https://www.dropbox.com/s/82szaatnflaw8fk/ACTIV8-issue7-Styles.pdf?dl=0 Activ8 issue 8 – Affinity Photo – Make Sketch Image With Just The Channel Mixer A while ago I made an Affinity Photo video tutorial about making a sketch image just using the Channel Mixer adjustment. I thought I’d up-date it slightly in this written tutorial, which can be done in Affinity Photo, Designer or Publisher. https://www.dropbox.com/s/6etmt3am6ljprwn/ACTIV8-issue7-ChannelMixer-Sketch.pdf?dl=0 Activ8 issue 8a – Affinity Software – 4 Creative yet simple ways to use Blend Modes This is a written tutorial update of a video tutorial I did in Feb 2018. They are fairly basic edits and will work best with an image that has a white background. So, I will use one I got from Pixabay, as are the other images used. Links to the video and image are in the written tutorial. The video was done in Affinity Photo but this will be done in Affinity Designer but I see no reason why it can’t also be done in Publisher. https://www.dropbox.com/s/sluebvjl86nuk8e/ACTIV8-issue8-Four-Uses-for-Blend-Modes.pdf?dl=0 Activ8 issue 9 – A Beginners Look At Affinity Photo part 1 Looking at opening images and saving your edits. Plus, file formats also a look at the Layers Panel and Colour selection Although tutorial is for Affinity Photo all will work pretty much the same in Affinity Designer And Publisher https://www.dropbox.com/s/7ztaxn4siom7evd/ACTIV8-issue9-Beginners%20Look%20at%20Affinity%20Photo%20pt01.pdf?dl=0 Activ8 issue 10 – A Beginners Look At Affinity Photo part 2 Looking at opening and setting up a new document other than an image. The Brush Tool and changing the Brush Tips. Then looking at the different types of Pixel and Vector layers you can make. Layer Masks and their use. Plus, a quick look at Text and Shape layers and the Glyph Browser. As with part 1, most (if not all) of the information in this tutorial will work just as well in Affinity Designer and Publisher as all 3 programs are so similar. https://www.dropbox.com/s/kourodnfojwq26l/ACTIV8-issue10-Beginners%20Look%20at%20Affinity%20Photo-pt02.pdf?dl=0
  6. Hi there! Well, this is my entry for a competition here in Mexico. Telecom enterprise izzi does an anual competition to do a work using their Logo. With the little time I had, I made this Isometric design. Best regards!
  7. I am trying a separate a portion of curve into another layer. But can't seem to find any option! May be I am missing something obvious - could anyone please help?
  8. Hello, I present you this flying pig made with Affinity Designer in various styles.
  9. Feed back much welcomed. This is my first attempt at a vector self portrait. I’ve learnt a lot of techniques doing it.
  10. Hi all, I am wondering if anyone here knows how to make a pattern like this in Designer. Using illustrator, all I have to do is make a dashed line stroke on a circle. Notice how the lines get wider the farther they are away from the circle. I have not been able to figure out how to do this effect with affinity. The dashed stroke seems to just make dots that surround the circle with Designer.
  11. i like they symmetry tool in affinity designer , but i wish i can raise the count of it so i can make better artwork
  12. First one done. Might do some top tump style cards based on them, not sure yet.
  13. I've just stumbled across the tutorial linked to below, which explains a lot of the Designer features in a basic way, often using basic shapes. Although a bit out of date, the features are well explained. Clicking on SHOW MORE in the section directly under the video gives the contents and the ability to jump along the time line to the various items covered. https://youtu.be/Gd7FmjUxFnE

  15. Working on a new vector piece of two women air kissing, called “Mwah”. I started this months ago and abandoned it as I couldn’t get the lady on right to work. I’ve picked it up again this week and really like how she’s turned out. Now I need to start woman on the left again so she matches the vibrancy and ludicrousness of the woman on the right! (She seems a bit dull and conservative in comparison). This is just a detail shot. They do have bodies/arms/cocktails in the full picture!
  16. Here is an illustration by me. It is a Bone-Eating Bearded Vulture. I videoed the beginning - and I videoed the ending -
  17. It could be that this has been discussed in the past already, I don’t remember, but in the colours panel you can select the sliders view, and then there is a select field for RGB and RGB hex with the only real difference that there is a hex value field below the sliders. And I’m thinking: is it really necessary to have two views? Couldn’t they be combined into one with the RGB numbers being shown next to the sliders and the HEX field below? This also applies to colours in the fill and border panels on shapes. Also, there is so much empty space next to the HEX field that could be used for two buttons to copy the HEX or RGB values quickly (see attached mock-up). That would be better than the current hidden option behind the button at the top right.
  18. I recently updated my Mac operating system and Affinity Designer. Since doing so, I've noticed that the selection boxes on things I click aren't in the right spot or they flicker and jump. The layers themselves move like normal, but the boxes are an issue and the software slowed way down. What should I do?
  19. Per suggestion from @Alfred Affinity Designer on the iPad Pro...my go-to software/hardware combination. Thanks Serif. IMG_0195.MOV
  20. Affinity Online Help Hello all, we're happy to be able to offer you an online version of the in-app help! Access Designer, Photo & Publisher Help here: https://affinity.help Here are some of the additional features we're able to implement as a result of having proper browser support: Dynamic language switching: The help will determine your language and (if it's available) serve you a localised copy of the help. If you prefer to read in another language, however, you'll find a combo box at the bottom left which will enable you to change languages—and stay on the page you're currently reading. Print: Sounds simple, but with full browser support we can now implement printing of the topic pages. The print icon in the bottom left will give you a nicely formatted printout of the current topic. Share: Clicking the clipboard icon will copy the current topic's URL to your clipboard, which means you can easily point other people towards topics that may help them. Responsive: The help was responsive anyway, including off-canvas menu functionality so you could collapse the window and still read a topic, but this is taken further in this version of the help. The help is formatted nicely and usable even on a 4" iPhone SE screen. Search: we've implemented our own bespoke search for the online help which is fast and accurate. Access it via the tab system along the top left. Favourites: you can add topics to your favourites list to easily access them during future browser sessions. Simply click the + (plus) icon next to the "Favourites" tab to add the current topic. With this online version you'll be able to print out topics and view them on your tablets/phones, which are two of the most common requests when it comes to help feedback. As always, if you have any feedback or find any issues with this online version, please let us know! Hope you find it useful.
  21. "Bring us the egg!" However mine represents cosmic happenings in a microscopic panspermia way delivered by asteroids and comets. Here is the image and a link to full draw video. Thanks you if you watch it. Video is about 1.5 hours, but skip along or stop and study. Into the Blue, awaaaaaaay!!!
  22. Windows 10 Home 2004, Designer 1.9.0.734 (all drivers up-to-date). Watch the video to see what happens. With OpenCL acceleration switched OFF everything looks fine. However, after switching OpenCL acceleration switched ON, I get some very strange things happening. 2020-09-19_08-47-52.mp4 I've attached a screengrab of my preferences dialog. (Video is from external monitor but laptop screen shows the same issue.) I've also attached the file for testing purposes. parallelogram.afdesign I’ve attached another video showing the same problem when manipulating a simple rectangle. 2020-09-19_09-26-29.mp4
  23. Hi there, since Affinity 1.8 it is possible to edit the metadata in Affinity Photo. Exactly this feature I had mentioned a long time ago. I wonder why the metadata panel is not included in Affinity Designer 1.8. Is there anything you can do? I ask again because I am not a friend of work-arounds. Or do I need to buy Affinity Publisher? (makes no sense to me, because I only need this feature) My old thread: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/101472-set-pdf-document-properties/&tab=comments#comment-544049 best regards!
  24. Hi everyone. I'm new to Affinity, I'm a sreen-printer and typography consultant, so I'm testing it for a possible switch from Adobe. But, I think Designes missed a very important feature of Illustrator, a dead-line to choose the switch. Illustrator can print on a Postscript file using the color separation feature, if I have a CMYK file, I can save a PS and give it to a RIP software or a "distiller" to crate a multipage PDF (C, M, Y, K in separated pages). I didn't found that in Designer... I attach a picture of Illustrator print window... Thanks!
  25. Hi guys! I was working on some social media ads for a client and created a simple template for all major social media ad sizes including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube, Snapchat and Reddit. This is a simple file with art boards for all your ad designs. It could come in handy next time you need to create a simple promo banner or ad for a client. Cheers! Social Media Banner Ads.afdesign
