  1. I am having a terrible time solving what seems to be a color discrepancy between what I am seeing on my monitors within the Affinity Designer & Photo applications and what I am printing out via my office printer as well as outside print services. While Affinity Designer & Photo display bright, crips images within the monitor itself, my print jobs from any file format appear very dark and dull, even when printed through third party print shops. I have had no issues in the past with other programs and their settings. I am wondering if there might be a color setting that I need to change internally to help your program accurately display on screen what my (and outside) printers will produce. If you have any other suggestions, they would be much appreciated.
  2. 1. It will be nice if you can change the color stroke with the right click on the color panel 2. Allow Left Click and Right Click to be used in Keyboard shortcuts combinations
  3. I'm having an issue when exporting .png assets from Affinity Designer for use in a website. When Chrome (on Windows) displays the .png image, the color does not match the HEX value I've assigned in Affinity designer. Here's a quick example of a square that I made both in Affinity Designer and in Photoshop. Both have a hex value of #252E42. I embedded them both next to each other on a HTML page that also has a background-color of #252E42. I've attached the result. As you can see the rectangle exported from Photoshop is completely invisible, which is exactly what I expect. But the rectangle from Designer is clearly visible. What is going on here? Do I have to change some color profile settings in order to make this work?
  4. Hi guys and wonderful Moderators, I know it's been probably said in a few posts but I'd like to list some of what I think are a few of the most needed features in AP. 1. refine masks uusing levels and curves, this is the most important thing, I'm not talking about refine edges or similar, I'm saying that once you created a mask to have the possibility to open a curve or levels adjustement for that mask to refine its range, as things are now we are pretty much stuck with the mask as it is at the moment of creating it, I just refuse to believe such thing is not available in AP, it's a foundamental feature, I mean AP has equations, EQUATIONS!!! and we can't put in this feature? 2. Some sort of luminosity masks panel, YES I'll ask for it for as much as it takes, even if it means having you put one in out of desperation for not having to read my every post about it. And I mean a full fledged LM panel, not the select midtones/shadow/highligh thingy, I mean a zones system/varying degrees of shadow/midtones/highlight selection though masks maybe. Seriously the channel way of doing it manually as it is now is cumbersome and uneffective, resterize layer to mask? really guys? nice feature but let's just step it up. 3. color picker when using the HSL tool 4. More color selection well...selections, blue, red and green are not enough really, maybve axpand to yellow, cyan, magenta. 5. slice tool to percentage or exact slices, as of right now I find the slice tool really...casual and amateur, would be nice to tell AP to: 'slice the image in 3 part vertically', insted of the free hand tool, which is pretty much useless imo. 6. suggestion for 3 filters, one is the tonal contrast equivalent, would be nice and save a lot of time having some sort of tonal contrast in the live filters, baybe a dynamic brightness too. your glow filter, nice idea, but poorly implemented all it does is blow out the highlight, maybe making it s that it protect saturation and luminance in some way, that's be nice. 7. create a panorama out of the opened files, same goes for hdr, it's really bothersome having to export all images before having AP create a new pano. 7 1/2, come on guys, let's just have an 'align layers' option, I don't know if i'm doing somehing wrong but stack create stack in the arrange panel doe snot align anything if you're not opening a brand new set of images, we need to align layers in an opened file. Thank you guys for this platform in which you allow us to give suggestion, I know i may sounfd just like the usual run of the mill whyny customer, but I do complain because I believe in this software and its possibility. Seriously though, take into consideration these suggestion, let's not just trail behind Photoshop, let's make a clear jump foreward.
  5. I would like to have the "Solid color adjustment layer".... the Pixel layer does not cover the feature as well as this layer would - eg. in Groups of adjustment layers, I have problem with adding a pixel layer. Also it is faster to work with it..... or did I just miss it somewhere? Thanks Jindra
  6. Hola a todos los que hablan español. He estado trabajando en una forma para usar el filtro aplicar imagen de Photoshop y los rangos de color con los que se crean mascaras, en affinity photo y encontre una manera de hacerlo y quiero compartirla con ustedes con varias macros que he creado, una para aplicar imagen y otras tres para hacer la selección de los colores CMY que no estan disponibles en affinity photo ya que solo permite seleccionar los rangos de color RGB, luminosidad, medios tonos y sombras pero no CMY. Como usarlos 1. Importar las macros 2.Con la imagen seleccionada clic en la macro de aplicar imagen 3.Se abrira una ventana con unos deslizadores para ajustar los parametros de la mascara creada, estos permiten mostrar mas o menos partes de la mascara. 4.Clic en aceptar y crear una capa de ajuste como curvas y arrastrar la mascar creada dentro la capa de curvas como una capa hija (child layer) 5.Ajustar los parametros de curvas para afectar las areas deseadas. (Se pueden usar otros ajustes). 6. Disfrutar Para usar las macros de CMY, aplicar la macro a la imagen para seleccionar el color deseado y con la selección activa abrir un ajuste de curvas o el que quiera y automaticamente creara la mascara del color dentro del ajuste y mover los parametros. Esto se usa para aplicar un ajuste a areas concretas de la imagen como el cielo solamente o como alternativa a las mascaras de luminosidad para hacer HDR. Selecciones CMY y Aplicar Imagen.zip
  7. See the title! Whenever I try to apply a color from my swatches to text, or a shape, or curves, etc, instead of changing the fill, a stroke appears on the item with the color I'm trying to fill with. This wasn't happening before today! I'm not sure I changed anything, although maybe I hit some hotkeys by mistake without noticing. Cheers!
  8. Twice now I've run into an issue where trying to export a png with Affinity Designer results in a posterized reduction of colors, and I cannot find a setting to avoid this. In my current piece, it resulted in obvious banding of the gradients, and the reflected light being lost entirely. However, if I save the file as psd, then open that in Clip Studio Paint and save as png there, I get accurate colors and no banding. The first file is the png as saved from AD, the second is the png from CSP, and the third is the original afd so you can check and see if there's anything weird about it. Brightmoon 8-ball.afdesign Is there something I'm missing on export to prevent this issue, or is it a bug? Also, I've tried copy-pasting layer styles a few times, but it's prone to changing the values on paste--generally about double or half (i.e., 7px gaussian blur becomes 13.8px). Is there a way to prevent that, as well?
  9. Hi, finally the moment has come that I have to ask for your help. Untill now I have always managed not to take your time, but now I am simply stuck. I am trying to make an HDR using 3 perfectly aligned photos of different exposures... Ususally I have no problem in doing that but in this case the result is terribly "posterised". Below are the source photos, and two results - one with all merge options unchecked and one with all options checked (by options I mean "align" and "remove ghosts" etc.). Does anyone have any idea of what might be causing such behaviour?
  10. Hi there, I'm glad become a Affinity user. But I got a wired issue here, that when I open photo or Picture in Affinity on Windows 10 at home, all the color turned to more yellow. I really have no idea what happening here. But my Affinity Works totally fine at work (it is a window 7 pc), but at home the Affinity color is desaster. Hope someone look into the Picture I uploaded, any wihte thing turn to yellow. but my screen is totally fine and same Picture showing correct color on any other software. Can somebody helps? Thank you very much
  11. Is there a way to keep a swatch name when creating a palette from a document, All colours that are created have the document file name followed by a number, Not easy to identify when colours are similar to each other.
  12. Hi! I am a professional designer that has always loved Adobe Illustrator and primarily work in vector. However, I detest Adobe's new subscription model and am very attracted to the price and reviews of Affinity Designer. I downloaded the trial version last night and tried watching You Tube & Vimeo tutorials, but could not find anything like the Magic Wand Tool. I use this tool every single day and cannot live without it. Am I missing something? Is there not a way to select all of one color? The color selection abilities seemed very elementary and more similar to Photoshop which I'm not digging. I was also having trouble dragging over a group of elements to select and Group. They would not select. In my AI files, they were already grouped, but for some reason became UnGrouped when imported into Affinity. It will take me FOREVER to go in and manually click each little vector detail. Help! -Lauren
  13. Will Affinity Photo and/or Affinity Designer be able to use the new color fonts that are starting to become available? So far they only work in Photoshop CC 2017. https://www.colorfonts.wtf
  14. Hi Folks, I'm trying to add some C, M, Y values only to Blacks in Selective Color Adjustment, but it's not working. I'm working in relative mode, and also when that box is disabled, but there is no effect. Is there any option to make some adjustments just like in PS when Absolute mode is enabled? Thanks, Adam. :)
  15. This question hasn't been asked since mid 2016 so I thought I would ask again mid 2017. Can we select same fill and stroke colour in Designer like you can in illustrator. This is a pretty important feature in my opinion, one that I use on pretty much every file I work on. Thanks.
  16. Looks like AD sets one value for RGB as HEX and another one for the HEX color code (4C, 4C, 4C versus #4D4D4D in the screenshot). If I step the RGB values up or down the value updates correctly, but every time I open the color panel for this color it shows that difference. PS: The forum doesn't allow me to search for "HEX" or "RGB" because it is less than four letters long, so I don't know if this has been posted before.
  17. Hi, there is a bug in the undo functionality. I can 100% reproduce a bug (also a screening - but both are confidential so that I did not attach it) in the undo functionality of changing a global color. 1. I open my project 2. go into a global color and change it (the results can be seen in the objects) and there will be history steps created for these modifications BUT if I use CMD+Z to go back so that there will be no more history step - the global color is not reseted to it's initial state. It still has the color of my first modification. Cheers, Stefan
  18. So far I have not found this feature in any drawing program. But I think it could be done and it would make technical drawings easier. If I want to draw the wiring of a house I have in Germany a blue and brown line for the the actual electric power and a yellow/green for safety. The catch is, that is is not possible, to draw a line where green and yellow are alternating. I have done some improvisation in CorelDraw by designing a pattern = containing of 45degree lines (kind of hatching) or of concentric circles. Yet in both cases the drawing of powerlines does no longer look „dottet“ or alternating whenever you have a bend. This can lead to the point, that the 45 degree pattern becomes parallel with the powerline drawing. And ist is not possible, to do that, where both colors are drawn parallel. The only way to do this would be to group a yellow and a green line … very cumbersome. CAD-programs for the electric field avoid the problem, by have you just draw one (symbolic) line. But in cases where you need to be more specific, it would be much clearer to have such an option The attached PDF shows part of a drawing where the electric problem was that one had to use the blue and brown line from one source and the yellow/green line from another. So my challenge for the folks of Serif: 1 Offer a feature, that allows to draw lines with alternating color 2 The pattern should stay always at a right angle relative to the direction of the line - during the initial drawing process as well as, when manipiulating the line afterwards like for example rotation or stretching. 3 A not so good fallback position would be, to have a double-line drawn where both colors appear next to each other, because it could look as if that where 2 electric lines = a yellow and a green one.
  19. There are cases when value in #(RGB) input box differs from what is shown in R, G or B. The difference equals 1. Go to Colour panel and set "RGB Hex" in Colour Model Selection. Use mouse to set any slider until you notice that value shown in input box next to the slider differs from #(RGB) input box. Example: I set R to 50 using mouse, but #(RGB) displays 510000. EDIT: Same thing happens for many colours chosen from RGB Spectrum. Affinity Photo 1.5.1.54, Windows 7 Pro x64, non-HiDPI laptop display [1600x900]
  20. I must be missing something. 1. Open existing file. 2. File=>New then specify size. You will see a blank document. 3. Switch tab to opened existing document. 4. Select eyedropper tool. 5. Select color. 6. Return to new file. 7. Fill (Shift+F5) is greyed out?? 8. Select Flood Fill Tool. 9. Click on new document. 10. Right click on document. Nothing happens. Try a new intermediate step. 7A. Select rectangular marquee tool. 7B. Draw a rectangle around the entire document. Proceed with 8-10. Nothing happens. So, what is the secret to flood filling a document? This is pretty basic, but I must be missing something in Affinity Photo's workflow.
  21. Steps to recreate 1. Add large image to art board (mine was 6720 × 4480) 2. Add rectangle to art board via the rectangle tool and color it 3. Add new layer and paint on said layer with the same color as the rectangle 4. export it as a low-res image My export settings are as followed Type: jpg Size: 1195px X 310px Resample: Bilinear Quality: 100% Estimated file size 80.34kb NOTE: The art board i exported was not the only art board in the file it seemed to work when i started with a lower quality image (eg no artifacting) I can see the artifacting in Affinity when i zoom out but when i zoom in it appears to be gone. Affinity version 1.5.5 MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013) - 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7 - NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2048 MB
  22. I just wonder what is it? and how it works? Thanks
  23. I made some LUT adjustments for AD and AP which I'd like to share with you. ​the attached Affinity file features embedded documents so that you can easily preview the effect of all curves on a single photo and then choose a curve that fits best/ gives you a good starting point/ idea. You can add them to your AP though opening the document, selecting each group, selecting the "LUT" adj, so that it's panel opens up, click "add preset". (I've made a feature request to make that easier) You can then access them by the "view > studio > adjustments" panel which is active by default (only available in AP) please don't overdo it :) blend modes, opacity and blend ranges can, and should be adjusted upon your needs :) for more information about such techniques you can have a look over here https://affinity.ser...er-amateur-pro/ LINK https://www.dropbox.com/s/wu96yk0j03kb0h0/MBd%201LUT.zip?dl=0 I really like the "Technicolor" one :) PS: similar presets for the "channel mixer" are available here PS: similar presets vor curves are available here
  24. Is there an option for the color panel to auto-select the color of the stroke or fill, depending of which one is used so that I can change it with just one click (instead of clicking on the selection I need first)? This would be the case where a shape has only one of these two attributes. For example, I have a square which only has a fill color (no stroke). If I click on another shape, let's say a circle and I'm changing it's stroke color, when I click back on the square, I would like the color panel to auto-select the fill attribute (since it's the only attribute the square has) instead of keeping the stroke attribute selected (from the previous change). My logic is that I would want to change it's color rather than add a stroke to it. This way would eliminate an unnecessary extra click. Does anyone have an ideea if this is possible? In Adobe's software obviously it's not, but I'm keeping higher hopes for Affinity.
  25. I create maps in QGIS (an open source GIS mapping program on PC and Mac). QGIS can export as PDF and SVG, but the best way is PDF. The problem with PDF's is that all the lines come in as individual layers (objects) while in SVG'sthey are at least grouped as sublayers. To get around this in Illustrator, I can use the Select>Same>Stroke Color and then move all the selected features to a new single layer group. Designer could use an expanded selection ability like Illustrator's. As far as selecting goes, there's a plugin for Illustrator called Select by rj-graffix.com which adds many selection abilities (but right now it doesn't appear that Designer supports plugins). Freehand used to have really robust selection abilities via a dialog box, and this included text attributes. Illustrator has never come close. Thanks.
