  1. I'm a new user to Affinity and I'm looking for a tutorial on how to add text to an image that looks like it was written in sand. I've googled this and can only find tutorials for Photoshop. Anyone have experience with this and can provide instruction?

  3. This seems a little too basic to have to ask, but the Help system is not helping. I have an image that I want to rotate a few degrees prior to doing some perspective correction. The Help entry says I can grab "rotation handles" but all I see are a blue outline with blue X's at the corners and midpoints. When I try to "display rotation point" I get nothing. None of the shift type keys have any effect. Is this one of those "can't get there from here" features that I seem to run into on occasion? Thanks!
  4. Hello to everyone, I'm making a calendar. I need to set every day and number of the week with precise distance and position. So I think to put every table one on one and then set several guides to check the position, and so on. But if I put a guide in a table this is not seen in other table. So there is a way to display same guide in every tables? Sorry for my bad english, I hope that you mean that I write...

  10. I am trying to put together a collection of images and transfer them to Blurb BookSmart or Bookwright. The images come from different cameras and are either in jpeg or RAW format. I can only find instructions for doing this using Photoshop (I don't own & have never used photoshop) So, is it possible? and, if so… what are the steps to take to achieve this. Much'o thanks in advance.
  11. Does anyone have a tutorial on how to achieve this kind of design using AP or AD?
  12. So I have a shape and I am trying to make sure the text I put to the side of it is perfectly centered to the with the shape. I know photoshop has something like this with their grids that show a line when you reach the top portion, bottom portion, or center of an object you are moving the item nearby. Does Affinity do the same? Photo from my website to show what I mean. See how the purple lines appear when I move my text over the bar on the bottom letting me know they are centered against each other? Thanks everyone! loving the program so far.
  13. Hello All, We use both Affinity Designer and Corel Draw X8. On occasion, we need to create fonts, and need to export them to TTF or other formats. Is there a workflow in Designer to create/modify and export true type fonts (or other fonts)? Corel Draw contains bugs that they have never bothered to fix in their font "features". If Affinity has similar font features, this may cause us to drop Corel Draw altogether. Any info on this would be appreciated. Thanks... Mark
  14. Thanks in advance friends... ...when flattening into a single pixel layer, do I first need to rasterize the grouped layers? Not sure how to do this, i.e, I'm unclear on the steps involved, and the proper order in which to perform them. A brief walk-thru would be greatly appreciated. FYI - I am wanting to manipulate the Flat image (bend, curve around a cylindrical surface such as a large barrel or a utility pole, alter perspective and/or viewing angle, stretch by pulling/moving nodes independently of each other, etc). greateful for your help, -Christo

  17. Here is a YouTube link https://youtu.be/5fnHH-Pxk9oit will take you to my humble effort at video tutrorials in response to Franklin's post. Franklin I hope I didn't presume too much by downloading your photo, I could have used one of my own, but felt it would be more informative to use your original image. In the event you are not happy with my using your image, please let me know and I will comply. The video res., leaves something to be desired unfortunately, it has been years since I did any serious video production, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. Hope this is of some help for those who wish to master cloning.
  18. Hi I have made 12 new Affinity Photo Tips in german I hope you enjoy it. I am planning to make more.
  19. I'm fairly new at graphics, but I'm running into a problem I'm not sure how to solve. I need to create an angled cap to lines I'm placing in a graphic. The lines are only 2.5 width, so I haven't been able to add a shape to the end on them to create the angles, nor can I place the lines behind a layer to cut them off at the correct angle for this particular graphic. Is there a way to angle the caps of the lines?
  20. As a complete newbie to Affinity Photo (and with no PS experience) I would like to know if anyone can point me to a decent vimeo/youtube/whatever video tutorial on how to prepare a photo with CMYK output for silkscreening (with frequency&angles for each channel, +anything on adding single spot colors to a screenprint. There are a few on youtube for Photoshop but I have not been able to find anything comparable for Affinity Photo. Thanks for any help.

  22. Need to create a composite image and need to know how to extract a subject from one image and put into a background image. I've tried using the selection brush, but had no luck. So to sum it up Copy a subject out of one in image and paste into the background. Any help much appreciated.
  23. Can anyone tell me how to do a proper dodge and burn layer? All I seem to be able to do is to duplicate a background layer and then burn or dodge on it. Is this the only way? I can't seem to figure out how to do a proper 50% grey layer and use that for dodging and burning. Maybe that way isn't the way it's suppose to be done...I'm not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated. cheers, Jason
  24. Hi Affinity, how can I gift your App to an Apple ID. Cannot find the menu item in Apples App Store in the drop down menu in the right square of the price tag. Regards D.
