  1. AffinityJules

    Miraculous Organic

    Apart from the backdrop (virtually gone) this image was created with photographs of water. With help from the liquify persona and blend modes I was able to realise this particular visual experiment.
  2. Hello Team ! Hello Everyone ! Glad to make this suggestion for the good of Affinity and Designers or just Users who joined the move and those considering to join the move. My point is about not killing things that we already love but making them even better and i hope this won't become a troll. To my sight, the celebrissime Liquify Persona need to be reviewed and improved, boosted or upgraded (take it as you want). Actually, a persona is not just something we click at but it is an identity to a type of Designer/ Creative Person/People and it is time to make it reflect those of us who identify their style through that Persona. ___________________________________________ Having a Persona to only twirl, Freeze, push etc ... some couple of Pixel is good but ... there is more to it. I suggest the Liquify Persona to be upgraded and maybe renamed to fit with the real style it is supposed to reflect: Photo Manipulation or Photo Composition (here too call like you want). I suggest more tools to be put in there that will help make the Photo Composition/Manipulation happen from that precise place with dedicated tools and even it can be the opportunity to develop new tools that fit the Manipulation/Composition Style. i'm not asking for tool to be removed from the Pixel Persona, not at all but asking for the Pixel/Photo Persona to be less loaded from its first approach for sure a user could decide to customize his toolbox like we currently are allowed to do but if that user is a Photo Manipulator/Compositor then he should load everything he want (photos) using the Pixel/Photo Persona then switch to the dedicated Manipulation/Composition Persona and do his work from that place. The workflow could be like this: 1- Load an image (or many images) on the Pixel Persona then select the object we want to work with 2- click the Manipulation/Composition Persona then be presented with necessary tools for that precise job, from Selection brush, Flood Selection, to inPainting not forgetting all liquify tools but all those should now be in more advanced mode giving more flexibility and settings to fine tune the work. 3- Do the job and when done click on Apply to switch back to the Pixel/Photo Persona which is the central place and see the result. Then do the same again and again with all other layers who need to be transformed or manipulated 4- the upgrade should give the user the opportunity through a button (like the After/Before) to view full stack of layer in low opacity mode which can be increased or decreased (but the user should only be allowed to work on one layer at a time. 5- All Color Grading work can happen in the Develop Persona or in the Pixel/Photo Persona (here for those who need to control) 6- The Tone Mapping Persona wold be helpful for fine tuning the thing with rich presets, LUT or Manual stuffs. Well all this must be given the possibility to be non destructive, meaning i must be able to select a layer in my stack anytime, at any level of progress and switch back to the Manipulation Persona and redo this or fine tune more that etc... More focus in the Non Destructive aspect will actually increase the value of the software. I know the move you are taking with making Designer and Photo to be kind of sub or Persona for Publisher but still Photo should be improved on its own because Photo compositor/Manipulators won't buy Publisher just because it is not what they do but a more enriched Photo software ... Well Yes many would go for it no complex to what already exist. This topic is open to more adds that can help Devs to figure this out. Even if they don't implement it with 1.7 Beta cycle, it is something they may take serious and consider to fine tune and implement in coming version and we can help here. I'm only 1 Brain, yours are needed for more power, Step out of the Purist areas and come help build great with you original ideas. Hope i've posted in the right place and wish you all the best with improving Affinity. Blessings.
  3. Hi! It seems like liquify tools have delay. For example if you want to push forward sligtly using short strokes (especially with Apple Pencil) the distortion won’t be applied at all. You need either put the pencil and wait for a couple of seconds or make a longer stroke and then adjust back to the desired level of distortion. It feels very weird and confusing and makes liquify tools hard to use.
  4. Hello i'm maybe wrong here but i have not seen any revolutionary improvement with the tools in the liquify persona. i mean, when using the twirl it is still so slow from the time you press till you see the real result, maybe i'm the one doing it wrong or using the wrong settings. I did push the speed to max and changed from to all sub methods but still from the time i press twirl till i really see the final thing ........ see ! the other push stuffs are much better a bit faster, so i believe the tools in Liquify persona need to be refined and adjusted to allow much fluid work. Please feel free to teach me if you think i'm wrong and direct me to any content that may find useful or helpful for my understand ! Blessings.
  5. Hi, I attached a link to a YouTube link that demonstrates how the liquify push tool starts to tear the image and distort in the wrong place. In the video I’ve shown how using the AP push tool in one area doesn’t have the desired effect. Then how Procreates liquify push tool response as it should by smoothly pushing the pixels not swirling them after a number of strokes. I made the spacing in the mesh smaller to allow it to be more accurate. I’ve tried this with the larger spacing as well and it made no difference. Leaving the liquify push tool as it is only adds limitations to a workflow. Please consider fixing this.
  6. Good morning from the Bay Area. Of all the modes Ap offers Pixel mode is the one that I have yet to conquer. Maybe I missed it , but I didn't see many tutorials offered on the official site. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Also, I am curious to see/hear how you implement this mode into your workflow. And if you had some of the same issues I am having, how did you learn to use this mode, and what do you find you use it for the most? Thank you for your time and guidance, it really is appreciated.
  7. The title pretty much summarizes it. Saving a liquify mesh is completely broken. Either it saves nothing (tried both local, and to iCloud), or it freezes with a completely white screen, and the only recourse is to kill Photo and restart, losing the work. Additionally, regardless of the location you save to, the message *always* says "Saving to iCloud".
  8. I need to hide the pointer (central cross with big 1024px tool-size circle round it) while applying the liquify turbulence tool in Affinity photo. I'd like to be able to drag the tool down the screen from top to bottom, filming as it causes its effect, without seeing the tool pointer/cursor. I know pressing space bar turns it into a much smaller hand, but that's still no good and acts as a view tool, pulling the artwork down too. I suspect it can't be done, but will be very happy if someone here can prove me wrong.
  9. Cómo podemos hacer el efecto de licuar en Affinity? How can we effect the liquefying in Affinity? thanks
  10. Hi, I would like to ask if there is an easy way to alternate between the Freeze and Thaw tools on the liquify persona. If there isn't, I would like to suggest the use of the "ALT" key for that purpose. Also I noticed that on the Liquify Persona's tool bar, there are the primary and secondary color pickers, and I wonder, what is the purpose of that? thanks and keep up with the terrific work! Gustavo
  11. If I'm working with multiple objects that I want t liquify, I hate having to apply, select another layer, and go back into liquify persona. It would be much easier if Liquify Persona had an option to toggle between layers. This might be on the roadmap, might not, but the persona definitely needs the layer option to increase workflow efficiency
  12. Hi, I suggest that, when in the Develop persona, hitting Return be configured as meaning Develop. Same thing in the Liquify persona, Return should be made to mean Apply. It would save time and avoid a lot of superfluous mousing around. Thanks!
  13. I noticed that the Liquify tools work excellent when I use mouse on my Mac. However when I try to use my older Wacom Intuos 3 tablet I get BAD BAD BAD delay and it appears it doesn't work because of this. Because its an older model?
  14. Hi, After giving Affinity Designer a try, and still struggling with it due to bugs, missing features and unresolved problems, I decided to give Affinity Photo a try, used it for 5 minutes, and gave up. A opened a relatively small picture, very tiny one, and jumped straight to Liquify Persona. No matter which option I used, it works extremely slow, so slow that it's simply unusable. I had to wait sometimes 10 seconds to see the results of a mouse move, which is unacceptable. I played with all options there, no luck, no way someone can work this way. So, I opened the same file in the latest Photoshop CC 2018 and went straight to Liquify Tool - and guess what! Everything works fast, smoothly and beautifully! All moves are reflected instantly. Same goes for AD - keep going back to Illustrator. So, in short, I bought both Affinity software since it first appeared on AppStore, and still not using it - only AD, occasionally, for symbols... I really wanted this to replace Adobe software on my computer and I think I had my hopes too high. Don't want to complain, but when I paid for it, the development was really fast, now I feel that the most important things are still unresolved.

    Here’s some of my photo manipulation done in my love: affinity photo for iPad dont challenge me here, because I care less if your work is better than mine, rather I care if you yourself like your work as well as mine to share with me and all who feel the same describe your techniques, how long it took, anything original about your workflow... leave SE your raw assets if you want, let’s create a discussion about improving how we use affinity
  16. Hello Everyone, could it be, that I changed the settings on the Liquify Persona on my Mac? And if yes- where can I change it back? I just tried the tools. On the App on the iPad it works on the right direction, even on my Macbook. But on the iMac it goes straight in the opposite direction. I think at the beginning it worked pretty well, so I think I just changed accidentally the settings. Would be awesome if somebody could help me, maybe with a screenshot or something. I am not a native speaker, so if you explain it in englisch I will maybe never find it Have a nice day -Julian
  17. When inside the Liquify Persona and using the Pinch or Punch tool - the effect is correctly applied while inside the Liquify Persona, but as soon as the changes are applied – the effect is reversed as if the opposite tool was used instead – if something in the preview was "pinched", after applying the effect the result would become "punched" and vice-versa. Affinity Photo 1.5.2 on Mac, but has been happening for quite a while, possibly since many versions ago.
  18. Greetings, Is there a way to make the Liquify Persona BRUSH SIZE bigger than 1024px ??? Thanks!
  19. Hi, after last update when I double tap with pencil in liquify persona it immediately quit to Photo without usual prompt about uncommitted changes in Liquify persona. I like lot of subtle liquify strokes instead of one strong stroke so double tap happens to me every single time :( Photo: 1.6.3.43 Ipad 10.5 IOS 10.3.2 Thank you very much. With best regards, Milan.

  21. I have version 1.6.2 When I use my Apple Pencil to push pixels they move at 90 degrees to the direction I'm pushing. Seems very odd way to implement the feature. Is this a bug? Thanks
  22. Hello, I recently bought affinity photo for Mac. Today while working on an image I switched to the liquify persona to make modifications, the application started to be unresponsive and then I lost the right side menu items (I only see the black blocks) and the left hand side menu items do not work. I did a system shut-down and restart and I'm getting the same behavior. I was thinking of un-installing and re-installing the application in case I disabled some feature on the app. Any suggestions on how to recover? Regards
  23. Dear Sir & Madam, Would you tell me how I can reflect a change after pinch & punch tools ? After using blush on these tools, I cannot see any changes like a tutorial movie. Operating enviroment is Windows 7 Home with 64 bit. Best regards, Tadashi
  24. The following workflow generates a wrong result: - open a jpg image - 'Anordnen'->'Vertikal Spiegeln' (German caption) - Open Liquify Persona - Use 'Move left' or 'Move forward' => Watch the result inside Liquify Persona - Click 'Anwenden' (German caption) => Watch the result in Photo Persona The performed liquify will be shown in the opposite direction
