  1. Locked pixel layer at the bottom of layer hierarchy is selectable by clicking or dragging. If it's not at the bottom, it's not selectable.
  2. Hi! I donĀ“t know how to explain this here we go... I have a Google Pixel 3 phone and take RAW (DNG) pictures using Adobe Lightroom Mobile, then I export them as Original and open them in my Computer with Affinity Photo. The results processing the photo in Lightroom Mobile directly is way better than doing it in Affinity Photo, do not get me wrong, I am NOT saying Lightroom Mobile is better, I am saying that Affinity is not reading the image appropriately, I already tried adjusting "Assistant Manager" and actually improved a little bit after changing the image to "32 bit HDR" and deactivating "Tone Curve" The image looks even better if I open it with the Windows Photo Tool: and as you can see, I already tried with the last Beta version(1.9.2.1005) and got the same bad results Here you have the best example I could give you, look at the miniatures, one of those is a DNG that was processed directly in Adobe Lightroom Mobile and then exported and the second TIF file is just the same but exported in this format: If I open both in affinity then the DNG file looks like the left/Above image and the TIFF like the right/Below one I attached the original RAW file (1) and the other one that was processed and then exported as a DNG (2) if it helps Please let me know if I am breaking any rule, it was really hard building all this post and I have searched a lot in google and Affinity Photo Community but without success Regards, LRM_20210128_174302_(1).dng LRM_20210128_174302_(2).dng
  3. Would be nice if you could add integer only mode to the pixel unit. (not hiding decimal point by rounding. actual data should be integer) This also should be applied to objects that's resized or rotated. This is useful for who work on pixel based artwork. It can prevent unwanted change of size or blurry image without checking each object that's pain. Also an object could snapped to another object that has decimal numbers on position/size, this is annoying.
  4. Hi there, this is the first big project using APublisher as a former Serif PagePlus and AI user. For some reason, all "l" and some "." are pixeled as soon as I export them into PDF. See exampel. No change of font, export into curves does make a difference. I never had this issue nowhere before. Do you have an idee, what this may be? Other than that I'm very happy with the Affinity Suite.
  5. Hello, (Sorry if my english is not perfect, not my first language) When i'm digital painting, I often need to switch between the brush and the eraser very quickly while keeping the same brush style, size and opacity. It's really annoying to just want to erase a tiny mistake, switch to the eraser and realize your eraser brush is in a completely different style and having to change all its settings just for one click. With the pixel tool, you can just press Ctrl to quickly erase, it's so perfect, I wish it was the same on the paint brush. It's one of the most awesome feature in Krita, the "eraser mode" which does exactly that (keeps your current brush setting) when you press E, and you can kind of do it in Photoshop with the "Eraser" blending mode of the brush. This goes for the brush tool in the Pixel persona of Affinity Designer, but also for the brush tool in Affinity Photo. I would love to see this feature go in, it's a tiny change but it makes a huge difference in the painting workflow Feel free to tell me if there's another way to have the eraser keep your paint brush current setting, i'm new to the software ! Thanks for the awesome software and the great price ! Alexandre
  6. I made a series to curved shapes of increasing size that I would like to flatten into a layer so I can fill the spaces with different colors/gradients. I see lots of advice on converting raster to vector but not the other way around. Can Should I convert the curves to selections? I feel really lost here.
  7. Designer on iPad, recently updated: when I want to DUPLICATE a BRUSH from a list, the message "new brush added" appears, but no brush appears at the bottom of the list. In Affinity Photo duplication occurs, but in Designer NO
  8. Hi, I love Affinity Photo. There's only one feature that keeps me from switching completely and opening Photoshop anymore. I'm doing lots of Pixel Art for Games and in Photoshop, you can set the pixel aspect ratio to be other than square. Here you can see that a pixel is actually 2:1, 2 pixels wide and 1 pixel tall. This is the standard multicolor mode for many old computers like the C64, Plus/4 etc. It would be fantastic to have this on your feature list. I can't stand using Photoshop anymore. Help me. Cheers, Esshahn
  9. Hello, new user here. I'm very happy with the purchase, but there's a little thing I'd like to ask in order to be able to ditch exporting to Photoshop completely. I intend to use AD mostly to generate 2D artwork in multiple resolutions*, and it's really important to control the amount of antialiasing. Without that, there's always a lengthy "pixel cleanup" stage that follows the creation of any asset. While being able to fine tune the antialias intensity would be amazing, I'd be happy with a simple "turn off antialiasing" option for both the pixel preview and the "rasterise"option. I originally thought that's what the "View quality" option in the preferences would do, but it seems to have no effect in the image. Bug, maybe? Thanks! * These are intended to be used in "pixel perfect" graphics (no scaling and no fractional coordinates, thus no filtering and maximum sharpness).
  10. Maybe I am blind and I totally missed it somehow, but I'm not able to set the width of the stroke (of a rectangle for example) to 1px. Or is this not (yet, hopefully) implemented? Thanks in advance guys! :)
  11. In Affinity Photo, if I move the pixel, its edge will become smoothed out. (I always draw with brush with 85% hardness above) Regardless it is select all pixel in a layer then move; or select a portion of a layer with selection tool then move, the hardness of the pixel become very soft. Is this a feature? Or simply the pixel too low? lol
  12. Hi Support Sorry for the large video file - I haven't figured how to reduce it yet. Can you check the video to see what the problem is. Affinity Designer 2020-09-17 15-41-48.mp4 The problem I'm having is that layers go missing mysteriously if I embed a pixel layer. I was doing it fine when I started (you'll notice that there is no problem with the ships body that has a pixel layer embedded in the vector layer) on the file but this seemed to happen as I progressed. I don't remember having this problem before. Is this a known issue with the update? - I tried looking but the closest I saw was the application crashing when users started to use layers (which is not a problem I have).
  13. Is there a way to change the default measurements in A.Photo to inches from pixels? Inches Decimal would be even better! Thanks, Ken
  14. Hi, I am working on a pixel art design, and need to use a pixel grid (just a grid with 1px), but de grid is not working under 4px size. It is normal? I am making anything wrong? Thanks in advance RPReplay_Final1586418326.mov
  15. Hey, I've worked on a vector + pixel job and want to iterate several times on the pixel part. I would like to delete / reset all pixel layers as a bulk operation. Right now I have to select them one by one, it's tedious. Is there a way to bulk select all layers of a certain type? In this case, select all pixel layers?
  16. I've probably read all the posts on the forums about this topic. Even the ones from almost 3 year ago. Yet the issue still remains. Is there a way to snap objects together without having a gap between the objects? I have tried the force pixel alignment and move by whole pixels. I also find that this does not only happen when snapping shapes to shapes, but also having a shape on top of another shape. It is also visible when a shape is on the side of the art board and exported to PDF format. I also tested this in Adobe Illustrator CS6, which is old, and I don't see this issue when putting shapes next to each other and exporting the file to other formats(jpg, png). The strange part is, while writing this post, I tested it in two documents. In the one I see the gaps and then in another the gap between the two shapes are gone. Please see the documents attached with examples. snapping_test.afdesign shows the gaps and snapping_test_successful.afdesign exports correctly without showing any gaps in the exported file, only in Designer itself. Please explain this, or I would really appreciate if this can be fixed or improved with an update. snapping_test_successful.afdesign snapping_test.afdesign
  17. I've been experiencing significant amount of initial brush lag/latency in 1.8, whether using a tablet or mouse - I'm using an iMac (HD, not retina, for what it's worth). I've seen this mentioned in the Windows specific section, but thought I'd bring it to the Mac section too as it seems to be an issue across the board. I addition to that (possibly related) I've also experienced weird thin tapers at the beginning of my strokes when using my drawing tablet (XP-Pen Artist 22R Pro), even if I press really hard with my tablet pen from the moment I put the pen down - the unwanted tapered beginnings are a lot more noticeable when drawing fast. I've mentioned this before, but it hasn't been addressed yet, and figured I'd being it up here. Here's a screen recording to show the lag and tapers for a better look - I also tested in Photoshop for comparison, but there are no issues there. I've kept the 'click-indicator' on in the recording so that you can see where the stroke starts: Affinity 1.8 Brush Issues (Lag and Unwanted Tapers): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GJ52So6GUU In both cases it seems as if the software takes a second to read and interpret my tablet pen input, even after I've already started drawing. I've looked into it extensively and done a bunch of testing, thinking it could just be my tablet or tablet driver, but it's not the case as it works perfectly in all other software.
  18. So far I've figured out this: In order to make pixel art (which would look something like this), I use Pixel Persona mode then create a square brush and then click on the Pixel Tool. Yes, I've turned on the grid and snapping, but I can't seem to draw the way I would want a pixel brush to draw. It's a bit hard for me to describe but I want the brush to move less like a painting brush and more like its snapping to the grid. This free drawing program is the best example I could find (just click New Drawing and test it out for yourself) of the way the brush moves which makes it so much easier to make pixel art. I also attached a video that might help understand what I mean. I know I could just make a square in vector mode and create pixel art square by square but that sounds tedious. If this sort of thing can't be achieved in Affinity Designer, that's all right I just want to know if its possible. Thank you. Screen_Recording_2020-04-25_at_11_47.28_AM.mov
  19. Created a design (all vector), but now I'm told it needs to be exported to PNG file format. I know now that vector and PNG don't really go together. Searching for best way to get my design exported to PNG while maintaing image quality.
  20. So I want to make pixel art and I see the pixel persona being used for that but I don't want it to be raster I'd like to export my pixel art as an SVG (with no raster) so I was wondering if that was possible with something made in pixel persona. If not is there some sort of pixel tool for the normal designer persona? All I saw there was the rectangle tool and that'd be a pain to use for pixel art.
  21. If you read this solution: https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/a/79248 And watch this video: You'll see how effect this method is for converting Raster Pixel Art to Vector Pixel Art and I think it would be an amazing tool for Affinity Designer to have!
  22. Hi all, On Affinity designer for Ipad, how would you merge two pixel layers: I started a drawing. I accidentally finished the drawing in a different pixel layer. Now I still want the drawing all in one layer. I've been looking everywhere, and I can't find something where I can merge down one layer into the other. Actually, I think this has been asked before, but they mention a 'Rasterize' action that I can't find (and also, I'm reluctant to rasterize a pixel layer)
  23. Hi, this is probably known issue, but it still apears in AfPub. When entering the isolation mode of some pixel mask in a document with multiple pages, the mask preview is showing all the time on the first page only.
  24. This past weekend I met up with some working professional freelance illustrators and concept artists (five of them to be exact, and myself) for a coffee drink-and-draw at a local coffee shop. Affinity came up as a topic, and we had a good, long chat about it - I suppose like a mini focus group. I figured that if 6 illustrators had a unanimous opinion about something, then it's probably true for many others. The general consensus was that Affinity apps for iPad are essential tools, and by far the best range of robust tools for industry work on the iPad (aside from the obvious, Procreate). With desktop, while the response was mostly positive, and while most agreed that it is technically possible to replace their current software with Affinity, the biggest issue was the brush tool. All the illustrators I spoke to work with dedicated drawing tablets on their desktop (among them was the Huion Kamvas, XP-Pen display tablets, and Wacom Cintiq and Intuos tablets), and digitally draw/paint their work in either Photoshop or Clip Studio Paint. Everyone said that, while the pixel brushes themselves looked nice and that they liked the customisable features in the brushes panel, they 'felt' a bit clunky to draw with (for lack of a better word), and lack the same 'buttery' fluidity, perfect precision, and perfect pressure sensitivity of some of Affinity's competitors. I think 'felt' is a really important word here. The brushes can often 'feel' a bit stiff and inaccurate to the tablet input at times, especially when doing work that requires a great deal of precise brush work, which results in the experience feeling just a bit off. The final illustration work may look fine when it's finished, but the drawing/painting experience is not quite there (i.e. there's a lot more cmd+z involved than should be necessary), which can hinder workflow, efficiency, and can be a bit frustrating at times. As a dedicated user of Affinity software (almost exclusively for over a year now), I felt it was important to mention this in the forums, as I have the same concern. I've mentioned tablet input inaccuracy in a few posts, and I'm really hoping that it gets addressed or looked into soon. Sadly, I've heard time and time again that this is a deal breaker for a lot of illustrators and digital artists looking to use the software, not for vector art or photo editing, but for pixel-based digital painting, professional comics, and precise and/or detailed linework. Fixing the tablet input accuracy issues could open a lot of doors for Affinity, and for potential users that are getting more and more frustrated with monthly subscriptions, but feel tied down out of necessity. A very large portion of Photoshop's user base is made up of digital artists, and I definitely think Affinity Photo has a huge potential to make an impact in that field too. I'm sure there's (hopefully) a fairly easy fix for this, as Photoshop, Sketchbook Pro, Clip Studio Paint, Krita, and so many others have already managed to get their brushes to feel near perfect for drawing and painting. Sorry for the long winded post, but I guess this is more like my pitch to get this issue smoothed out for a better user experience.
