Hello everyone I recently got Affinity designer after years of Illustrator. I love the program but am still getting the hang of it. Can anyone tell me how I can get the curves I want whilst using the pen tool? Just like on Illustrator, I click once with the pen to create a point. I click again to create the next point. The line path from point A to point B has a really wonky curve and is not at all what I want. This mainly happens when I'm drawing clouds or trees. I can't seem to get the perfect line and curves that I want without using the node tool to edit my lines or just using smart mode. Dragging the mouse doesn't help me to get the curves or shape I want either. Is this just the way Affinity works or is there some setting that I am unaware of? i'd really appreciate any advise here! Thanks so much :)
Hello all! To celebrate Affinity Photo's first birthday, we're releasing a short set of beginners videos to help people who are new to image editing and the concepts of layers, adjustments, filters and exporting. The videos have all been transcribed (English UK) and the subtitles are available via the "CC" icon in the bottom right of the video player. You can watch each video from the links below, or see the album at http://affin.co/photobeginners Additionally, you can download the practice files for the Adjustments, Filters and Exporting videos here: http://affin.co/photobeginnersfiles Here's the list: Opening and Saving: covers how to open and save your images, and explains the benefits of using the Affinity Photo document (.afphoto) format. Layers: explains conceptually what layers are, how they're used, and how they affect your image or document. Adjustments: looks at what Adjustment Layers are, and how you can use them to tonally alter your images. Filters: learn how to use filters to manipulate your images, and get to grips with Photo's unique "live layers" feature. Exporting: find out how to simply export and share your finished images.We hope these are of great use to people who want a more straightforward grounding in the basics of Affinity Photo, and do stay tuned for further beginners videos in the future. Main Shortcuts differences between the Mac and Windows version Windows keyboard shortcut equivalents: Mac 'Command' key = Windows 'Ctrl' key Mac 'Shift' key = Windows 'Shift' key Mac 'Alt' key = Windows 'Alt' key Mac 'Ctrl' key = Windows 'Right Mouse' button NOTE: Most recent Affinity videos and tutorials have been made to reflect both Windows and Mac keyboard shortcuts. However there are still some that currently refer only to Mac accelerators.
