  1. Every time I try to do this with the effects the shadow goes both outside and inside the rectangle. I have a photo inside of the rectangle and I want for there to be a shadow coming from the rectangle onto the photo. I would think that I would go to "inner shadow" under effects to do this but it isn't working for some reason.
  2. Hello, I just saved my work to svg. format. Suddenly, I notice that the shadow from hand images that I've created using drop shadow effect are saved separately in PNG. format. I get confused what is that things so I try to delete it all. But then my saved images will be like this.. Do you notice that 'x' dot? The shadow disappear. Could it be my work step just not right? I get this hand downloaded from some free vector images website. I change the colour and add simple stroke and drop some shadow outside. Finally, I click expand appearance because I want the stroke to follow scaling together with that hand image (while scaling). So how do I remove that 'x' dot and save the image normally (together with the shadow, not in separate way)?
  3. Hi to everyone from this new user! I'm an old Photoshop user hoping to do all that I did there and more in AP. I am making masked TIFFs out of some contoured white objects that were photographed on a white background. I want to maintain the original shadow but make it blend to whatever paper it will be printed on. I have traced one contour of just the object and another one that includes the shadow and used each as masks on duplicates of the image. I gave the layer with the shadow a 70% opacity but I want the outer pixels to fade outwards to 0%. I thought using Feather and deleting the selection would do it but it does not select evenly. Grow selects evenly but deleting that just creates a visible cut. Any ideas that do not include manually going around the objects with the Background Erase tool? I appreciate any help!
  4. 为什么投影没有曲线衰减, 为什么给图形输入RGB值后 按回车无效,一定要调节一下噪点才能有效。虽然这款软件集矢量和像素为一身,但是交互上有很多硬伤,我很喜欢这款软件,希望能尽快修复各种bug。 —— UI designer from china
  5. Hello can you tell me, how to make a round shadow like this? thank you north
  6. Hi, in diesem Affinity Photo Tutorial zeige ich wie man Schatten erstellt. Es geht um 3 Arten von Schatten: Schlagschatten, gemalter Schatten und realistischer Schatten auf dem Körper. Das ist meine Idee „Traum ein Superheld zu sein“. Viel Spaß Ciao Jack Hi, In this Affinity Photo Tutorial, I show you how to create shadows. Here, there are 3 kinds of shadows: drop shadow, drawn shadow and a realistic shadow on the body. This is my idea of „dreaming of being a super hero“. Ciao Jack YouTube: Schatten (English Subtitles)
  7. Hi Community I think this is a typical newbie to Affinity Photo problem and I really appreciate any help! Target: "Follow the red arrow" ;) I want to remove the shadow from the section. On the gravel ground this is no problem with the Inpaint Tool. But this can not be used to remove the shadow from the forearm. What I already tied: Get the colour with the colour picker, select Colour Replacement Brush Tool, the result is: Undo (because it is destructive). Quick Mask the section, apply the "Recolour Adjustment Layer", I tried all Blend Modes, best result I got is with "Screen" Please find a slice of the untreated original attached For each reply many thanks in advance, Roland
  8. Hallo, In diesem Affinity Photo Tutorial zeige ich wie man Lichtstrahlen und Schatten erstellt. Man kann das mit einfachen Schritten in jedem Bild machen. Mit dem Zeichenstift, ein paar Ebenen und Filtern. Viel Spaß, ich bin auf Eure Projekte gespannt. In this Affinity Photo Tutorial, I show you how to create a light beams and shadows.

  9. Hello, first of all: GREAT SOFTWARE, really! I am new to Affinity, so maybe I am missing something, but I found a weird color problem: I have created a logo consisting of group of paths filled in three CMYK colors. In the same drawing, there is rectangle filled in one of the logo colors (I used the picker to ensure its the same color). When I apply a drop shadow to the group, on the screen all still seems ok. When I print it (color laser), the logo has quite a different color than the rectangle (it looks somehow bleached). Assigning the drop shadow to one path within the group does not cause the problem). The problem only occurs if I assign the drop shadow to the whole group. A workaround is to put a copy of the group behind and assign the shadow only to the copy, but thats not very nice... Am I missing something?
  10. Vic Asecas on our Facebook page asked about creating a long shadow, it would be good to have in future. Here's the example effect Vic wants to achieve: When I had a play I struggled to make it look as good, it seemed to me that the effect can be approximated with dark shapes and a gradient transparency, but the gradient has a straight profile perpendicular to the gradient path. In Illustrator, this effect can be achieved using blended copies of objects that go from e.g. 20% opacity down to 0% with a blend spacing of e.g. 1pt. Even with a long shadow this produces vector banding like the bad old days, so I'm sure there's a nicer way we could achieve it. Mesh fills would be one possibility, obviously the Blend tool on the roadmap is another, but maybe a Long Shadow layer effect/tool is another possibility?
  11. Hi I have a logo which I have designed in Xara, and I have imported it as a pdf into Affinity Designer, because I need to change the logo. I have changed the logo and I have used an outline shadow fx as a drop shadow. Now I try to resize the logo to exact dimensions, because I need to export it as a png in different sizes. But the resize does not take the shadow fx into consideration. When I resize the logo to 165 x 95 and then go to the export persona to create a slize, the slize becomes much larger because the resize does not take the fx drop shadow into consideration. Is there a fast way you can resize to exact pixel dimensions when you use a fx, like the outer shadow?
  12. Hi Affinity Forum, is there a way to cut or hide the shadow of an object, when it has a decreased opacity? When I assign an outer shadow effect to an object with a hight offset, I can see the shadow behind the object. Additionally, how would you approach the same problem when the shadow of an object bleeds into the borders of another object with low opacity? Thanks. Stefan
  13. When I export my project as a PDF, a strange outline surrounds the shadow around objects and text. I have attached 2 images, one was exported as a PNG and shows how I intended the text to look, and the other was exported as a PDF and shows the strange outline.
  14. Dear Team, I`m iOS Developer and need an App for edit images. I need create images and edit existing files. I need know: 1 - Is possible resize images; 2 - Shadow effects; 3 - Basic effects from Photoshop (because designers give me projects for export labels); Thank`s, and sorry for my english, I`m Brasilian developer and my friends designers are like this app too.
