  1. If you have trouble getting layers to clip, try using the Insert Inside Selection button. This is an Affinity Photo beginner tutorial and number 24 of the Digitally Fearless Power tools of Affinity Photo playlist. https://youtu.be/0rkizBHum50
  2. Attached is my complete set of notes about blend modes, now spread across 52 pages of A4. These are significantly updated from the previous revision, with lots more 'recipes' and organisation of these under main topics, hopefully to make them more usable. Enjoy. Blend modes notes V5.pdf
  3. Hi, is there a list of the features and their names in different languages? I could not find any. There are lots of tutorials out there, mostly in English. Sometimes I struggle to reproduce a certain step because I have no idea which tool is used, as the name is not obvious in German. eg. blend modes or filters. thanks Philipp
  4. 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
  5. Erase White Paper Tips and Tricks. Affinity Photo video tutorial showing several ways to use the erase white paper filter.
  6. Hi there I´am trying to erase part of a mask using the brush in overlay blend mode. It suposse that if the mask is un black and white and the brush in overlay mode, when the brush pass over a white part of the mask, it should not affect whites, but it does. How can I fix this?
  7. Hello everyone! I'm having a hard time with something I'd like to do in Affinity Designer and don't know if it's because I don't know how to do it, or because I'm understanding things the wrong way. Is there a way to use multiple blending modes but that between them they don't affect each other? I have a base layer (flat colour). On top, I have a shadow layer and a highlight layer with multiply and overlay blending modes respectively, but because of how I stack my layers, it's easier for me to do one layer and the other below it, instead of making them precise. In 100% opacity norm
  8. I couldn't find a way to set a keyboard shortcut for the following 'most used' blend modes Normal, Multiply, Overlay, Screen/Softlight Photoshop uses a Ctrl+ Shift+ a letter (M, S, F,)
  9. Hi Blend mode video tutorial is interesting. However, for completeness please advise how to create various layers(e.g. shadow, reflection, refraction and etc) used in the tutorial. Thank you.
  10. Here's a way to quickly perk up a sunset, using just blend modes. Let's start with a basic sunset picture. This is a view over Madrid a couple of weeks ago. Now duplicate this layer twice (Ctrl-J, Ctrl-J), then turn off the top layer (check mark on right in layers panel). Select the middle layer. Invert it (Ctrl-I). Change Blend mode to Luminosity (drop-down box at top of layers panel that says 'Normal'). Hmm. A bit strong. Turn Opacity (top of layers panel) down to 50%. Now we have (a) interesting colours in sky and, notably, (b) grey elsewhere (the
  11. Hi Affinity Team, I am having some issues with PNGs with transparency. If I add these PNGs inside a CMYK document and export them as PDF I get different colors behind the transparency of the PNG. This happens when I use the format PDF/X-1a:2003 or PDF/X-3:2003. If I use the PDF/X-4 the transparency problem does NOT occur. I am also having these issues with other pixel graphics as well, when I use blend modes like multiply. Please check the files attached to see what I mean. It would be great to fix this issue since most professional printer would like to have
  12. Hi everyone! In this file, so far I have been "drawing" the dragon using a layer mask. Now that the actual content is all on the layer mask, I wanted to edit the layer mask in a sort of non-destructive way. I wanted to add flowers and all kinds of patterns to the area outside of the dragon, but wasn't sure how to do that without having them all on the same layer mask. I don't want them on the same layer mask because in case I end up not liking the flowers and stuff, I'd have to retrace the whole outline of the dragon. Then I thought of the great erase blend mode and wanted to use an
  13. I’d like one. Just realized it’s missing when I opened a PSD that had a layer set to Linear Dodge, which is very useful for creating nice glow effects.
  14. In Affinity Photo blend modes are a feature - and I guess most people with some experience have tried them or know how to use them. They are arranged in groups - but it would be helpful if the menu could be presented either with spaces or other delimiters between groups in the menu, of with different backgrounds or features so that the groups become clearer - e.g. Darkening group, LIghtening group and so on. I've not checked right now with the iPad version as well, but it would be good if this also applied to that version. This wouldn't alter the functionality, but might ma
  15. As I've seen in many videos, the Mac version of Photo shows the blend modes as a complete list, all items are visble at once. Still without separators like in some competitor's product but at least you get a complete overview of all available blend modes. The Windows version is different here, it shows a drop down list with a vertical scroll bar. So it is always harder to find the desired blend mode. It would be really nice to have the same completely visible Mac-kind of list in the Windows version of Photo too. Speaking of the blend mode list, some separators for the different blend mode grou
  16. I'm always amazed with the things you can do with blend modes. This is just 4 circles, multiplied and repeated on a 9° rotation. So simple. So beautiful.
  17. Calculation of the following blend modes is broken when LAB/16 color space is used in AF 1.6.1.93: -Colour Dodge -Difference -Exclusion -Subtract -Average -Negation -Reflect -Glow -Hard Mix Other blend modes work correctly, so I don't assume it would be any problem with using LAB and blend modes. All of these except Hard Mix behave as if Normal mode would be used. Hard Mix in LAB produces some extreme Red coloration even with grayscale inputs. Reflect blend mode broken in LAB.afphoto
  18. I have a question..... When performing some steps that I have mimicked from Photoshop using blend modes (using the same image) the resulting image never matches the result in Photoshop. Now is this because the math behind the layer modes differ or because the color profile that I'm using in Designer/Photo (default) differ from Photoshop (default)? What could I be overlooking?
  19. Here's a novel way of detecting edges and creating a simple outline layer. Start with an image. Here's one taken in Kathmandu. If you do a 'detect edges' on it (Filters/Detect/Detect Edges), it looks like this: This can result in lots of little bits being selected too. What if you want to select less? One way is to use Levels or Threshold. Another approach is to go via blending. Duplicate layer and set Blend Mode: Hard Mix. This simplifies the picture. Now if you do a detect edges you get a simpler and slightly different set of lines. The resul
  20. When I add a gradient overlay along with outline in the FX panel, I get no interaction. Shouldn't gradient OVERLAY be like a coating on top of everything? I can't get these two effects to blend at all.
  21. When I had to give up Corel Draw (a Mac OS upgrade issue) the thing I most missed is that it has Boolean And, Not and Or blend modes. I figured out how to do some totally unique things with these. If you introduced these I'm pretty sure AD would be the only other vector software to have them.

  23. This bug happens consistently and after I power off and on my iPad. I've got the latest iOS and AP 1.6.3.43. I'm in the layers studio, in RGB. I start with 2 layers: Top layer: bright green pixel layer, blend mode darken Bottom layer: mid grey pixel layer Result: a dull green, as expected. Select the top layer and tap group: The blend mode of the group is normal The blend mode of the bright green pixel layer in the group is darken Result: unchanged, a dull green: the pixels from the grey bottom layer are entering the bottom of the group and darkenin
  24. AP adds blend modes Average, Negation, Reflect, Glow, Contrast Negate and Erase. Is there a detailed technical description of how these work, including the blend logic, please? Rationale for inclusion and ideas for use also would be appreciated. Also, is there any reason why Divide blend mode is not included? Thanks!
  25. Here's my notes on blend modes. Any additions, corrections, pointers, etc. most welcome.
