  1. I am trying to reduce shine on a person's face in a Photo and I am trying to paint over the shiny areas with the surrounding colour on the skin and then use blend mode to reduce the shine. I also have other layers including frequency seperation, so now when I try to reduce the shine on the pixel layer I have created for this I don't see any change. is it wrong with where I am placing the pixel layer as in the sequence or what ? Where do I need to place the pixel layer if I have a lot layers including frequency seperation
  2. I purchased Affinity suite 2, and cannot find a way to update from 2.1 to 2.2. The Affinity support site suggests there should be a "check for updates" option in the applications main menu, but in my versions of Designer and Photo, that is not the case (see screenshot). Any ideas of how to update my applications?
  3. Hello! I love using your suite of apps, but I have a suggestion to make working in Layer FX a little easier. Since color overlay, just has "one" function, please add the color selector wheel visible inline as a part of the controls. It's not very effecient to have to click it every time. You go to this FX to do just one thing... change the color. Also please consider adding "tab" keyboard support to toggle between controls. Similar improvements can also be done to other Layer FX to avoid uncessasary extra mouse milage and clicking. Thank you for considering these ideas!
  4. Hi there, didn't find any Informations in the Forum. When I use Affinity Photo V2 in full screen mode, the Adjustment Panels do not appear. Only when I shrink the window do the Panels appear. I don't have the problem with Affinity Photo V1. AP V2 and MacOS on the Mini M1 are up to date. Reinstalling AP V2 did not solve the problem. Does somebody has any idea? Thanks and regards Michael
  5. The Curves Adjustment can be used in all programs in the suite to create bizarre colours, that normal people would not be able to invent, while being sober. The image below shows the end result: Years ago I drew this image in Designer, using a somewhat standard skull that I found on the web. I removed the background by drawing a shape around it with the Pen Tool and used that to clip the skull. The initial drawing looks like the one below: But when selecting the skull object inside the clip shape, its colour can be changed drastically, to stop the design from being blandly obvious. The RGB is edited in an uncommon way, the red is raised a notch and the green is lowered a tiny bit. Below is the Curves Adjustment dialog to see what settings I used to arrive at the end result: I gave the circular text a somewhat similar treatment as the skull with the Curves Adjustment tool. The text in the end result is the Hoffman font that I duplicated. I edited the duplicate with the Contour tool, so that the end result does not bore observers to death. Best of all is that such an effect can be achieved without using strong beverages or smokeable goods. I hope some of you find this tip useful. Cheers!
  6. I love Affinity Products.. I use Affinity Designer and Publisher but for Affinity Photo I have the challenge with Raw image editing capabilities. Kindly do more for photographers.

Its also possible to have a powerful develop persona editor for Affinity Photo than even adobe Camera raw...Please my special request on behalf of many photographers out here...🙏 some possible features for Develop persona... Auto Image editing.. Handling Bulk images before Export.... Importing of images on develop persona while maintaining camera settings on the raw images More features on image correction both light, colors, retouch and much more Bulk export of images to various formats right in develope persona Thanks we are hopeful all is possible 🙏
  7. Here's a thread from 2014... It's crazy to think that you would have implemented this by now (2022) unless you're going the Reason Studios route, "We know what you need, you don't!" unless I'm missing something....
  8. So I am using a PSD file with textures. I have opened other PSD files 90% of the time without any problems but this one gives me an error pop up. Can anyone explain what this means and if there is a fix?
  9. Here’s an interesting technique, if you don’t mind the result being rasterised, to create a ‘roughened’/distressed version of a shape, or some text, or various other things. Note: Only for Photo (or the Photo Persona of Publisher), either V1 or V2. Note: This only works well on simple single-shade backgrounds (because of the Gradient Map). See attached video. First add a Live Procedural Texture of Urban Camoflage – the higher the Square Count the smoother the ‘roughening’. Then add a Live Median Blur – setting Preserve Alpha to ON may produce better results. Then add a Gradient Map Adjustment – make sure both middle gradient stops are at the same position. (Maybe add a very slight Live Gaussian Blur on top to ‘take the edge off’ a bit.) Experiment: Try changing the Blend Modes of the various Filters/Adjustments to see what weird stuff you can make. 2023-09-10 12-27-37.mp4
  10. Hello! Recently I have been experiencing an odd bug: While using the Brush Tool, the tool changes to the Eraser tool after I Toogle Fill Context (chang the colours by pressing [x] ), using the color picker [Alt shortcut] or sometimes even at random Each time I press the Brush Tool shortcut [B], it also alternates between the Eraser and Brush tool. My shortcuts are the default for the software. Is there anyway to fix this issue? it has been hampering my work for some days now. Thanks in advance.
  11. Hello! I'm having a frustrating time with the brush tool in Affinity Photo. I was drawing with the brush tool but it suddenly stop working. Opacity, flow and hardness are all 100% and protect alpha is unticked. All the other tools work. I tried the 'edit in affinity designer' option but designer also refused to paint on the document. I have opened and closed the programme several times upon advice in previous forums. I've tried painting on different layers and adding new layers to paint but there's no response. I also tried painting whilst not having a layer selected (letting the assistant automatically create a new pixel layer) but the brush still doesn't paint. The strange thing is that i opened a new document and the brush tool works with no issues and with all the same settings as the document which isn't painting. I had both the new document and the document i'm working on open and the programme would only paint on the new document. How can this be fixed? I'm mid way through a drawing and can no longer complete it. Thank you!
  12. Start into infinite spaces, composing supported with material from Pixabay, made with Affinity Photo and upscayl, because I started with a too little canvas.
  13. Photo of a leaf, Mirror filter applied, released and tonally processed, new background. All done with Affinity Photo.
  14. https://www.artstation.com/artwork/VJYr95 Had some fun painting one of my favourite Spider-Man villains, Venom. Had a blast working with more painterly brushes for the skin.
  15. I have an old press image taken in the 80s and it is best described as dot-formed black and white. I just want to know if there is any way that Affinity Photo can create a normal b&w photo from it?
  16. Is it possible to take multiple photos of a large vertical area (like a building elevation or a large mural)and stitch them together in Affinity photo to create one large image?
  17. I used some macros from James Ritson.
  18. Hey, I'm currently on the trial versions to try the Affinity programs and I consider buying the programs, but there's one thing I can't solve and it's the Masking. When i try to paint with the Black color to hide parts of the image the result i get is some sort of greyish color and the mask is not compleatly transparent. I've watched several tutorials and none of them helped me, so I decided to ask the community. The White color seems to work just fine, but the Black turns to Grey color and i don't know why... Probably it will be simple fix but i dont know how to solve it. Thanks, Filip
  19. I did this in 2016 just after Affinity photo was released. the original was taken on my wife's iPhone on a damp and dismal day. I was rather pleased to see how it finally turned out. Program goes from strength to strength.
  20. Can someone please help me with how to disable the Mesh in Liquify Persona on the iPad ?
  21. Another try at drawing in Photo in the iPad and I think it's going better. Thanks to the staff I was able to get the blur brush working again and though subtle is did help with some blending issues. This is definitely a case where not good photo can make a much more interesting illustration. Isolating the marcher form everyone else made for a much better composition.
  22. Do I make wrong way, or really cant handle Photoshop artboards any affinity product in 2023??? When I open a very simpe PSD file (it has 5 artobard and one-one image in it) only put the 5 images one huge artobard. Photo and Designer too.
  23. I have V2 and just realized that there are no typefaces installed. I read on the forums that there is a Publication Typeface Collection. I'm looking for something like what I get in MS Word. I assume this is waht I want. How do I get the Publication Typeface Collection?
