  1. I hope you'll reconsider adding a mirror painting feature on affinity photo :D
  2. Ugh! I just installed the new version 1.5.1 and started work on a project, only to find that the crop tool now grabs an image, rather than actually cropping. What am I missing?
  3. Hello together, first of all, thank you very much for your magnificent software, I'm working with the Beta for Windows now some days and it's very fun to do so. Nontheless I have a question regarding the Marquee pixel selection tools (e.g. elliptical marquee and rectangular marquee tool) and their modifier keys. I have consulted the help and found there are only two modifier keys, one which constrains the proportions (Shift) and on modifier key the removes ares from the current selection (Alt) and the possibility to drag with both left and right mouse button down) to add to a selection. I would ask if it is possible to add some more (from my personal experience) very useful modifier keys which would make it way easier to select circular shapes. A modifier key to draw the marquees from the center point rather than from the egde where the click at the begin occurred, for example holding the (Strg) key or another suitable one down Another modifier key I find very useful is, e.g. holding the (spacebar) key down to move the selection on the fly while it is still being drawn holding the mouse key down These are just some things I find really useful that make with selection these tools much easier to work with, I'm quite accustomed to such key modifiers as they are available in Photoshop CC. Thank you again and a wonderful week ahead. Kindest regards from Germany, Robert Christian Strasser
  4. Hi all: I have found the pencil tool invaluable but there's always one little thing that it would be nice to have: Is it possible that the point at which the line is started could show as a visible coloured node? Whenever I get to what I think is the point where I started, I'm off target! It's not a huge problem but it would make the workflow faster if I didn't have to clean up too many nodes. I attach a poster I made where I used the PT for all those spiral patterns cut into the kerbstone at Newgrange. It could be that I'm just not using it properly and my apologies if that's the case. BTW I'm absolutely delighted at the way AD is working. Best wishes to all the team,, Kevin
  5. This is basically a bump of this topic: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/13457-pressing-the-space-bar-when-drawing-a-shape-should-temporarily-allows-us-to-move-it/ Attached a gif from the thread to more easily describe it.
  6. Hello Affinity, I am a graphic designer from Indonesia. Me and my friend are currently working our way to bring our studio alive and we find these!: Affinity Designer and Photo. For Affinity Designer, I would like to request for 'pen' tool enchantment. I would like to have the 'pen' tool have the 'line trace' to make pen positioning easier. The feature looks like 'bezier' tool in inkscape and 'pen' tool in coreldraw. I always use them in my work. At the moment I am exploring this Designer. I will keep continuing giving feedback for this. I find this program looks promising and may be a 'black horse' in market. i am an inkscape user for almost 4 years but as I said before, this program looks promising, and i love that 'personas'. Creative! PS: Forgive me for bad english.
  7. Hi, On PS I have the Tools toolbar moved to the right of the UI near to layers and other panels for ease of use. Will the function to move the toolbar be included in Windows version? cheers, Paul
  8. Pen and line tools good but if I may suggest a change. In order to change the still I need to draw a line first then add style or line type...it should be if I select a tool type and be able to select object before I draw for example blur blur effect or bevel. This way I can see the effects right away and not have to stop edit then continue drawing.
  9. Hello, creative people! I'm a science professor (Physics and Math, mostly) and I'm working at some electronic educational materials for my students. When I found about vector graphics and AD, it was a game changer for me. I'm not by any means an artistic person, I don't draw, paint or whatever, but I use AD for science illustrations (inclines, pulleys, circuits, geometric shapes). I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but my feature request is a small detail that I find useful for science illustrations. I would like it to have a special tool for displaying measurements and some other labels. For example, if I draw an incline, to be able to show its measurements or if I have a problem with, say, a football field or a rectangle, to quickly add its measurements. And not only the (measurement) label, but also the specific arrows, like on the sidelines of the picture in the attachment. Also, should I (or any of you) have any more ideas for useful features for scientific illustrations, I'll surely come back. Thank you for your time and the great products! EDIT: I'm sorry, for some reason, the attachment doesn't display as it should. It's this picture: http://www.volleyball-rules.net/images/volleyball_court_dimensions.jpg
  10. Hi all, I have a question about using the pen tool. I'm a recent adopter of AD and AP. Often, when I'm drawing a shape, I get around to the other side and see that I've lost a portion of the line. In other words, I'm kind of chasing myself around the shape. It's easily remedied but I'm wondering why this should happen. Could it be my set up, for example? (Wacom bamboo working on El Capitan). Thanks in advance, Kevin
  11. First let me say, I love Affinity Designer so far and am very excited to have a quick, responsive, reasonably priced vector graphics tool available for Mac & Windows. I am currently using the Windows Public Beta and it is already the central tool in my design toolchain. There is one feature I use all the time in Inkscape and pretty much the only thing I find myself leaving Affinity Designer to accomplish, at least in my all-vector work. The ability to take an arbitrary path or set of paths and arrange them along another path. Below are some visual aids from the inkscape manual showing some of the possible uses of this effect: See the manual entry here. And if you want to try it for yourselves, the menu option in Inkscape is as follows: Extensions -> Generate from Path -> Pattern Along Path I would love to see this functionality inside Affinity Designer, and I think many many creative professionals either already rely on this or don't know about it :ph34r: Thanks again for all your hard work. I am (well, have been) a UI/UX designer and find what you guys have accomplished so far to be spot on. I don't think the way Inkscape presents this dialog is as intuitive as it could be, so if you guys decide to pursue this feature, keep that in mind. I like what you've done so far so I won't bias you with my input, but if y'all want any suggestions for how I would work this into the current Affinity Designer interface, I'd be happy to help.
  12. Now that we have symbols, replicators wouldn't be far off. Attached is how it works in Modo. You take any item (groups are items too), set it as a master object, activate the replicator tool and create live duplicates of that master. Anything that changes with the master changes in the duplicates as you make the changes. The position of the replicas is basically done with null objects/locators that can be automatically positioned with a formula (to form predefined shapes or cling to bezier node points of an item) or can be placed manually. What I'm doing in the video is just moving the centre point of the master object around, this creates an offset-like effect. replicator demo.mov
  13. Hello, My name is Kuba, I'm from Poland, and i work in local Radio. When working on my materials for job, i have to make not only audio recordings, but also some photos for online post at our website. I'm doing best i can, and recently my friend told me to start signing my photos, so everyone can know who's the author. Trust me, it's very important to have signed photos. My mentioned friend got a better job, because he was signing his photos, and somebody found him this way... Lets go back to my topic. When i'm adding some simple text i often have some problems. Some pictures are different size, because of necessary cropping, and pasting puts them in some weird locations. same applies for vertical photos. They are not so common, but sometimes i have to do something in portrait mode, so i have to add watermark by hand, and it's not very precise. When you're scrolling through the online gallery, and all watermarks are in different places and sizes it looks very cheap and unprofessional. I'd love to see some simple tool for watermarking witch would allow me to: - Add preset watermark to picture; ^ In set place(i.e. 10% of picture from bottom and 10% of picture from right. Every picture is different resolution, so pixels might not work for watermarking) - Set global size of my watermark (So that regardless of resolution watermark always looks the same, i.e. 5% of picture overall space) I mean by this, that for example my watermark is set in lower right corner with 10% of picture border from bottom and right. and in picture in 1000x1500 it takes as much overall space in % as in 4000x6000 resolution picture. Sorry for my not perfect english, as i mentioned i'm from Poland... Feel free to comment, add suggestions, your experiences or tips for watermarking in the comments section. If you think this could be a great tool, but have something more specific to add, say it! Maybe someone at Affinity will read this and give us a great tool? Who knows...
  14. Good evening, I've noticed a bug when using the clone tool which produce a blurred result. Here's how to reproduce: Open an image (make sure it's a pixel layer) Choose the Clone Tool Set it to "Current Layer" mode Set a source. If you look closely to the clone preview, you should notice that the previewed result is more or less blurred depending the mouse position. Start cloning. The result will be blurred and not 100% reflecting the source. Second test: Change the clone tool mode to "Current Layer & Below" Preview and result are both perfect. Check out this example it's zoomed-in in purpose:
  15. Hi, I am new to AD but used PS/AI a lot and I have problem in work efficiency / speed when it comes to select objects. Normally I press "V" and I can be sure that I am in the move tool and start to click-drag a marquee selection. Unfortunately in AD I'm not. Because if the move tool is already active "V" toggles to the last used tool. And if I start my click-drag action to create the marquee selection - something other happens, e.g. I paint or what tool is ever active then. I couldn't find a setting option in the preferences to prevent that behavior. Is there something I overlooked? Thanks. Also thanks, for that great software package.

    Crop Tool Not Working

    Hello, I am trying to use the crop tool and when i select it no options appear, the other tools have options appear on the top bar, but when crop is selected nothing is there, i have included a screen shot so you can see what i am talking about. Thanks Ryan
  17. Hi, In the develop persona there is a tool called overlay gradient tool. Does this tool not exist in photo persona? The reason I am asking is because some of my scans are in monochrome (no RGB), and the develop persona is not able to handle none RGB files. Which reminds me... is it possible to converse color profiles? Cheers Peter
  18. Hi, When using the clone brush tool, I notice that I have options to set the rotation, scale, and opacity of the cloned area, but I can't find any way to adjust the location of the clone source once it's been set. I find it much more useful to adjust this location using the keyboard shortcuts, rather than the rotation and zoom. For reference, the way to do this in PS, is holding Option + Shift + arrow keys. It's extremely useful when the source of your clone has a repeating pattern. Is there a way to do this in Photo? Thanks
  19. It would be nice to have a tool that sprays symbols. with size, opacity, rotation and color control. (like symbol sprayer tool in adobe illustrator, or anything like that.)
  20. I'm in Affinity Designer 1.4.1 in the Pixel Persona. I'm using the Paint Brush Tool, then I switch to the Erase Brush Tool using the E shortcut, now I want to switch back to the Paint Brush Tool by pressing B, but B selects the Pixel Tool instead, which I should happen when pressing B twice, not once. This bug does not happen in Affinity Photo, it correctly resets the tool iteration.
  21. OK, I'm hitting this bug (or UI gremlin) constantly. My example is for a stroke width, but it seems to apply to all numerical value fields (e.g. opacity). 1. select a stroke 2. click into the stroke width slider numerical field in the stroke panel 3. type to change the stroke width (any value) 4. hit 'enter' to commit the stroke width change 5. hit 'v' key to change the cursor to the move tool (or any other tool keyboard shortcut) RESULT: the stroke is 'zeroed' in the field by the tool keyboard shortcut press, the stroke width change is cancelled, and the stroke width is set to 0 and becomes invisible. EXPECTED: the width change is committed after the enter key is pressed, and the cursor is changed to the move tool by the subsequent 'v' keypress. The expected behaviour works if I substitute a tab keypress for the enter keypress above - I think it's reasonable to expect that the 'enter' key should commit the field change in the same way, right?
  22. Hi there, I've recently purchased Photo (2 days in) and it was all going well until I started running into an issue with the inpainting brush tool, as well as some of the other editing tools like Dodge Brush tool, basically won't work after I've selected them to edit a image with? Not sure what I am doing wrong and I am pretty sure its a newbie error. Cheers, Nicholas
  23. I have a MacBookPro 9,2 with El Capitan, 16GB RAM and 32 GB of free space. I purchased Affinity Photo two days ago. I have opened a JPG photo but am unable to do anything with it, as I cannot select any of the tools. The hand (top tool) seems to be permanently selected. Clicking on any of the other tools does nothing. I have followed the instructions in various tutorial videos without any luck. Help! How can I select tools, such as the eraser? This is very frustrating. Thanks - Stan Gould.
  24. Hi, Something strange happens when I want to get the selection of a shape on a rotated image. Here is the process : 1- Open an image 2- Rotate it (Document/Rotation 90°) 3- Draw a closed shape with the pen tool (P) 4- Create a selection by cliking the "selection" button in the pen tool options As you can see, the selection appear at the wrong place, as if it kept the old image coordinates (before the rotation). Thanks by advance to your answer. Note : It would be good to click on the "mask" button and having the possibility to invert the mask ... problem_rotation-shape-selection.mov
  25. Hello, Just started vectoring my first big piece of artwork with Affinity and hit upon a snag... I cant find the eye drop tool? Within my work process I create a shape, add outline colour, point thickness, apply internal colours and style - then when creating a new shape that requires the same treatment click cmd + i, bringing up the eye drop tool which clones styles onto the new object. Is this possible in Affinity? its a bit of a pain to manually do each shape and item.
