  1. Hey gang. I am new to Publisher. I made a master sheet, and put frame text in the sheet. I also added a header. The header uses the Times New Roman typeface. So does the frame text. I pasted some text off the internet into the first page and was surprised by how it looked. I don't know why it looks like this. Did Publisher apply styles from the web page? I expected the text to be styled like "suffrage cook book" and not in the heavier styling you see here. What's going on and how do I fix it?
  2. REMOVE RED EYE TOOL How to use the Remove Red Eye tool. Part 16 of my Digitally Fearless Powerful Tools of Affinity. I also give you an alternative tool because like in all graphic apps, the Remove Red Eye tool might not be the best choice in some cases. https://youtu.be/_FqDyGeQcWQ
  3. Don't say Covid 19 is only bad (even if it is!), thanks to a big dent in my workload I finally found the time to get my hands really dirty in Designer, that is doing some "old style" illustrations instead of the usual logo work. Some input would be nice !
  4. I'm new to Affinity and coming upon this issue the last few days. I must have toggled something somewhere without realizing it. When I go to PRINT an image (even a black and white photo), my preview shows it with a RED FILTER over it. I haven't applied any filter and don't see it when I'm in the work space. If I choose to print in black and white, I'm getting the effect of the added red filter (darkens everything and lowers contrast). This is happening with any photo I open in Affinity, even without adjusting it whatsoever. Any ideas what I've done? Thanks!
  5. Painted Face in Minutes! Affinity Photo beginner tutorial on how to give a face a painted look in just minutes. The tutorial uses black and white photos and a black background to manipulate the photo. https://youtu.be/lhoqEDRjELQ
  6. In part 2 of my Creative uses for the Stamp Tool I once again show you how to think out of the box. This beginner tutorial uses the stamp tool to create a frightening ghostly effect. https://youtu.be/Bn4hkAwb1LY
  7. Finally got around to spending some time with Affinity Photo. I love it ! just wanted to share a couple of pics with you :)
  8. Hello All, I've just bought publisher and I'm struggling to work out where to begin, as I am completely new to desktop publishing software. I followed the tutorials link, and watched the interface overview video, but the rest all looked rather specific. I also tried searching the FAQ's but didn't spot anything. Any advice on where to start? Perhaps a sample simple project with a workthrough... In case it helps, the project I have in mind to start with is a large poster, with lots of elements that need to line up, with a consistent text style for the captions that accompany
  9. I've been persuaded to change to Affinity Photo, after a good many years using Graphic Converter as a pixel editor on my MacBook Pro's and desktop Mac's. The relevant work I've done is scanning and cleaning up old documents, sometimes generating diagrams mostly made of solid-colour lines. So far I've imported a task I was working on, and re-saved it as a .png, with a file-size (800KB) half that which GC had produced, so I'm pleased about that. However, that is as far as I've got. I tried opening a marquee on my work-piece, wishing to shift a clump of pixels sideways, but after an hour
  10. Hey guys, I am a real beginner and thought about buying the Affinity Designer Workbook. My Question is now, are the books even up to date? The Affinity Designer Workbook is from 2016. How much has changed in the program itself and the features... Would you guys recommend me to buy the book or is it not worth it anymore?
  11. Hi everyone, I'm new here, and new to Affinity Designer. I have no experience with any other vector drawing programes so I really am a total Noob! Please can anyone explain how I might create the texture pattern attached? Thank you! John
  12. Hi, I am new to the Affinity Photo so sorry for the basic question. I have looked at tutorial videos online on how to cut a section from a image. The two methods I found is the selection brush tool and the pen tool. Every time I use these tools to cut an image, the edges of the image that is selected has rough edges or not smooth. I use refine but nothing really helps. How can I cutting an image with smooth edges and place it in a different image?
  13. Hi. So I've had Affinity Designer for about a year but have never really tried to expand my art in the digital direction. This will be my first attempt at a vector illustration. Suggestions and feedback welcome! Sloth:
  14. Hi zusammen, ich hoffe es ist nicht unverschämt, unhöflich und total daneben ... Ich habe lange mit mir gerungen, ob ich diesen Thread hier mache. Denn es handelt sich um profane Werbung. Und dann auch noch um Werbung für mich und mein Produkt. Nämlich um meinen Einsteigerkurs für Affinity Designer. Liebe und kreative Grüße Heike
  15. Hey guys. Im a new memeber here and new to these programs by Affinity. Anyways I've dabbled a bit in the past in illustrator and inDesign but pretty much forgot everything. So now im getting back into Graphic design simply as a hobby but this time around on Affinity. My question here is which affinity program should i use to create a Restaurant Menu? I was thinking of using Publisher. Is that the right tool to use? Any good tutorials for similar ideas made on publisher? Thanks in advance.
  16. Hi I'm new to affinity and I'm a home designer without much skill. I know the basics of Affinity Designer. Please can anyone help show me how to replicate picture 1 using picture 2. I came across picture 1 on the internet and loved the way it hazes out (or fades out) on the left hand side. I can see the picture has been extended and then hazed (or faded out) to make it look like one long picture and I'm trying to do the same with picture 2. I am sure that it would be quite easy for someone who knows their way around Affinity Designer so I am reaching out to the forum
  17. In this beginner tutorial, I'll show you how to use Affinity Designer 1.6.1 to draw a dartboard with simple tools. The following tools from the toolbar are used in this tutorial: • Move [V] • Node tool [A] • Rectangle [M] • Ellipse [M] • Graphic text [T] I mainly work with the following panels in this tutorial: • Transform • Layer • Swatches / Color • Stroke With power duplication we also get to know the function of rotation and changing the rotation origin. Keep on drawin' Norbert
  18. Prior-AI user here. How can I join 2 nodes? None of the options in the Action window seem to help. I'm basically trying to turn this "O" into a "C":
  19. Hello all! I'm a complete beginner to creating vector artwork. I'm more of a Photoshop person. I have the Designer trial, and since I work better with text tutorials than videos, I went looking for some. I didn't find many, but there are tons for Adobe Illustrator. I did one and the lack of the warp tool in Designer tripped me up. Can you recommend any Illustrator tutorials (since there are so many more of them) that work with Designer? I'm looking for basic stuff. This is the tutorial I tried that used the warp tool, otherwise, I had no trouble with it. https://design.tutsplus.co
  20. Hi, I´m a total beginner and I just can´t combine this 3 lines into an area I could fill with color. They just don´t combine. Why is it?
  21. Hi there, as an Adobe user for years I´m thinking about switching to AP and donwloaded the trial version. From what I see after one day of testing I´m really impressed and I´m sure it not only can replace Photoshop, it seems to be the better software. With that said I have some questions from a AP beginner (not a image editing beginner at all) perspective: 1. Is there a way to "export" images from Adobe Lightroom right into AP? I mean some option to set AP as the external editor in LR 2. Is there an option to save individual workspaces such as in Photoshop? I mean customize
  22. Hi Everyone, I just bought affinity designer, but was wondering if there are any good resources for complete beginners? I am looking for something like an in depth guide. I wanted to order the workbook but my country is not listed. Thanks for the help in advance. Regards, HDK
  23. I'm new to photo editing and when I look at all the different options available, I get overwhelmed and just don't know where to begin. I wish there was an explanation to what all the different options mean and an explanation of when and in which scenario they should be used. So, I'm wondering if such a website or video in AP exists? I watch all the tutorial videos but unless I understand when I should use the different options, e.g. masks, layers, brushes, etc., I won't be able to edit my photo properly. When I try to follow what's being done in the video on Vimeo, my photos look ho
  24. I'm new to design so excuse if this it's a dumb question. I duplicate a shape with no stroke but the new shape doesn't have the same size. There is some "extra" which I believe it's from the stroke. Please take a look at the attached file. Thank you.
  25. Greetings, I have no experience with graphic design, but I am interested in creating simple designs using stock images and incorporating text. In an attempt to narrow the information I have to consume to do this, I wish to find instruction on how to import stock images into affinity and place text onto and around these images. Also, how would I get the final product into vector format? I'm sure my questions are very elementary to most users, but I have never worked with any design software and would like to dabble in some simple designs and be able to see my creations on tangible prod
