  1. Hello I have a problem I do not know why metal does not use the Nvidia graphics card, just intel, Thanks
  2. My girlfriend recently published a book. Imagine my surprise when I observed the pre-dawn sky and saw this. The marketing dept. at Timber Press have outdone themselves!
  3. Hello! It is still very difficult to use Affinity Photo for mockups. However, I think a basic solution is to prepare layouts that allow you to use the perspective tool with ease. Also, leave prepared layers that can be used as masks. On this, I would like to share something that I am working on: In this template, I just import the business card's PNG images and adjust it with the perspective tool on one layer (hidden below). The thickness and background colors are changed by selecting the desired color from the palette. I'm currently revamping this model to insert a localized varnish mask. See the result: Seriously, this design took a long time to build, but to modify and use is super fast and easy. I would like to hear from the community before proceeding to produce more Affinity Photo-specific mockups! Until then!
  4. Can I cycle through brush nozzles before dabbing my canvas? If I go to the Affinity photo brushes panel. Spray-paints, Spray 7 brush has 7 nozzles. I want to dab my canvas with these sploshes. But Affinity Photo applies the 7 different nozzle splosh shapes randomly. So I do not have any control of how my artwork will look. I can rotate the brush nozzle using the left and right arrow keys. BUT! When several nozzles are available for one brush. Is there a way to cycle through the brush nozzles and choose a specific nozzle, before I dab my canvas?

  6. I first started to see this in the last update, and this update is worse. The thumbnails do not show. Also when trying to edit with curves it shows an empty box. Another issue is that the grid ends up on exported images even when it is turned off. But, for this issue see screenshot. Thanks.
  7. Looking through my old images, and decided this would be fun to play with using "selective color." Really gave the touch I wanted to the image by moving the background away and making the flower head stand out. Added a small amount of dodging and burning.
  8. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to make a poster similar to Obama's "hope" poster. I've seen a a few tutorials done using photoshop but im reluctant to try those because i know i would get lost eventually trying to follow along on affinity photo. Anywho, does anyone have a good tutorial they could link me? Thank you. If there are none to be found then its ok. i just wanted to try it out. My Favorite learning tool so far have been youtube videos where i can follow along. thanks.
  9. Importing a raw image into Affinity Photo with a specific lens (described below) results in horizontal color bands down the right side of the photo. Additionally, the image size is incorrectly reported. I've attached a screen shot of a portion of the photo as it's presented to me. This banding is not visible in either PhotoShop or Sony ImagingEdge software, in fact, the banding seems to be "added" to the right side of the photo. (Similar banding shows up in browsers viewing the image as a file in DropBox.) The edge of the image in the other processing software is to the left of where the banding starts. The banding appears to be about 31 pixels wide. The size of the image is expected to be 9504 x 6336 (both PhotoShop and Imaging Edge view report this as the size as well), however, Affinity Photo reports the image size as 9600 x 6376. The camera is a Sony A7 rIV. A 24mm F1.4 lens displays the banding. A 24-105mm F4 lens does not. However, the displayed image size is the same for both lenses.

  11. Hi everyone! I´m very new to Image editing, and I have been working with affinity photo for about 2 weeks, trying new things and tutorials around the web. Yesterday I decided to take a challenge, mask some girl´s hair, bute I can´t! Can someone help me do this? I don´t know what settings to use when refining edges around the hair and how to get some good selection. I put here the image to you so you can try it and if you are able to select and mask that hair pls let me know how you did it!! Thanks everybody!!!
  12. I have a scanned image that I’m trying to edit that I’ll eventually export for cutting on a Cricut. Trying to figure out if Photo (or Design) on iPad has the ability to scale/resize a layer or object based upon a reference object? eg: I’ve got a photo of ruler that I imported, I now want to scale and deskew the photo so the objects in the image are actual size and proportionally correct. For scaling, I could create a 1” square and then try to scale the imported image to align with the 1” square, but this is complicated as there doesn’t seem to be a way to designate an arbitrary point as the anchor point for the scale operation. Is there a simpler way? I’m used to this sort of technique in CAD (And even Photoshop) where you select an object, define an anchor point, a reference point, and then the third point moves the reference point to the new location scaling the whole object proportionally. Similarly I would also need to deskew the image (remove any keystone effects from perspectives) but can’t seem to figure out how this is done within Affinity. I don’t see how I would do arbitrary transform of an image at all (other than in the limited transform studio on the right side). Is there a way to do this or something similar in Affinity?

    Meetups or Trainings in Washington, DC

    I am looking for designers who use either Affinity Designer or Photo to learn and create with in the Washington, DC. This may not be the best platform to say this, but wanted to start somewhere. Hope to hear from someone soon.
  14. As a surface pattern designer I have historically used Adobe photoshop to create stand-alone repeating patterns with or without backgrounds that are also designed to incorporate texture and/or pattern. The resulting designs were saved as "defined patterns" and applied to artboards of any size using the following steps: edit——define pattern—-ok Open new document e.g. 10,000x10,000px edit—-fill—-contents (select pattern option as opposed to foreground or background fill) ——select required pattern from a list—-ok While I am very happy at the switch to Affinity I am struggling to figure out how to visually proof my designs this way (which are often designed using 2000px square artboards to create the repeat) when I need to be able to show that the repeat is working and simultaneously put the size it was created at into perspective. Also, some websites require large areas of repeat (up to 15,000px square) to enable on demand printing of fabric in the specific design. I have attached a couple of examples below to demonstrate the kind of work that I am discussing here. As a designer who is relatively new to digital systems I am focused on the creative aspect of my work and not especially tech savvy, so would appreciate an “idiots guide” approach to this if anyone has the time to respond. Any support with this would be much appreciated. Kind regards
  15. I’m continuing on with my downloadable user guide project. Here’s the 2nd edition. It adds a Part 3 to the 1st ed, Example Editing Projects, which currently contains five projects. More projects will be added periodically – about 4 a month. I’ve also added an index, but it’s still early days while I work that out. The first four projects were posted individually here on my site. I’ve included the fifth one in today’s post (as well as in the 2nd edition). The 4th & 5th (and all future) projects have a downloadable copy of the starting image for the project. You can download it and follow along with the editing steps. Also, links to all of Serif’s official documentation are available throughout the guide if you need help. Enjoy.
  16. A post on Facebook prompted me to make this image. Tutorialmeister Carl Surry posted a link to this tutorial by Michael Wilson: Here's my effort: and the figure I started off in AP with a couple of stock images, the background by J C Gellidon from Unsplash and the figure by Radu Florin from Pexels. The 'portal' began as an ellipse; actually a circle which I deformed with the Perspective Tool to make it appear parallel to the shop fronts. The flare is a trapezium rotated onto its side. Some clipping, masking, gradients, transparency (in Designer) produced the lighting effect, and I added a pixel layer to paint a few highlights on the right-hand side. Here's the aphoto file: AlleyPortal-000bSMALL.afphoto

  19. You may find your Macros can't be imported into the Macros panel in Affinity Photo. This can happen because there are two types of Macro files .Macro and .Macros. Below is some information regarding these two files and how to import each file. Please also make sure you have watched our tutorial on Macros which can be found here: https://affinity.serif.com/tutorials/photo/desktop/video/309301203/ .Macro These are single Macros that have been exported via the Macro panel in turn they must also be imported into the Macro panel which is the panel shown below. .Macros This type of file is a collection of Macros that have been exported via the Library panel and therefore must be imported into the library panel. You can see an example of this panel below. If after reading this you are still having difficulties importing your Macro files please make a post regarding this in the questions section of this forum and if possible provide a copy of your Macro file as this will allow a member of our support team to quickly look into this further and get back to you!
  20. You may have noticed that with some of our 3rd party content packs alongside the usual .afbrushes ,.afpallete and .afassets files you also got a pack of .JPGs or papers as they are sometimes called. These .JPG files don't import into any of our panels instead they must be imported as and when you want to use them via File > Place. The below excerpt from our Watercolours and Washes: raster brushes by DAUB Spotlight article details how to use these papers effectively. If you would like to read the full article you can find it here. Working with DAUB Watercolour Papers The DAUB® Watercolour Papers have been designed to give added authenticity and realism when using the Watercolour and Washes brushes. Here are some different ways to get started: Open one of the DAUB® Watercolour Papers in Affinity Photo or Designer for Desktop or iPad, the same way you would a photograph. Or make a New Document in Affinity Photo for Desktop or iPad. Select File and Place then select one of the DAUB® Watercolour Papers from your computer or iPad to place the image into your document. In Affinity Designer you can also use the Place Image Tool icon on left toolbar in Draw Persona. The most effective way to use the Watercolour Papers is to create a rectangle to fill your canvas using the Rectangle Tool, then select the Fill Tool in Designer or the Gradient Tool in Photo. Where you are given the option to select Type of fill, select Bitmap, this will take you to your computer or iPad files where you can select one of the DAUB® Watercolour Papers. See Paolo’s video above to walk you through how to do this! Use Blend Modes on your digital paintings to make the colours take on the texture characteristics of the papers.
  21. Unfortunately, Smart Objects in PSD files will be rasterised when opened in Affinity. There is limited documentation available relating to Smart Objects and the PSD format which is the main reason why we've not already included this feature in our apps. However, it is something our developers are constantly researching and we hope to add support in the future.
  22. I don't remember, but I'm sure time ago I created a file with multiples artworks, the problem is now I don't find this option.
  23. My dear Ms. Charity, 10+ years of total love and devotion. A crude photo composition; however, the story of us growing older together is simply marvelous.
