  1. I suddenly see a Undo Brush Tool in my toolbar. How do I get my normal brush tool back?

  3. Greetings all, Are there any rules, or guidelines, for creating the artwork used to create custom, textured brushes in Affinity Designer? I've been using 300 dpi PNGs, RGB, white stroke against black background. Regards, jB

After adding my Textured image Brushes then closing AD and reopening again the list of Textured image Brushes "My Brushes" all show no image only an empty list but not all just the recent ones added before AD 1.3.2 version... While this time I exported brushes then reimported them back then renaming it back to the original name and added more brushes once again went through the cycle above same thing only the Textured image Brushes prior to AD 1.3.2 stay and the rest once again vanishes only a empty list box... ?? After reopening AD 1.3.2 Before shutting down AD... Regards, Bill
  5. Hey forum, I downloaded the app and I worked the last days with it - everything worked well after a short time of changing the system, but I miss some details/options? Maybe I have not found them yet, or they are not existing, yet.? 1. I cannot change my brush size per keyboard? [ ] (the shortcut for that alt + 5 or alt 6) works well in text, word or safari, but not in affinity? I haven't found a option to change the short keys or an overview regarding the other existing shortcuts? (german version of Aff. Photo and german keyboard) 2. I would really like to copy the effects on Layers - for example the Shadows or what would be great the light also :) Thank you very much for the help an best regards !! Ost
  6. Sent this inquiry into another thread. Effectively? I cannot find them in my app...do not know where they have been inserted as it has been announced each time that I have clicked the file. Little dumb I am. Could Ronnie or any one you, friends, just tell me? thanks in advance... Rosa
  7. Hi, Does anyone know how to import brushes into AD? I've looked at posts here and followed the instructions (ie clicked corner menu & selected 'import brushes') but .abr & .eps files are greyed out and I can't import anything. Do I have a glitch? Hoping someone can help. Cheers, Hannah
  8. Here I am with a quick tutorial to create a Bristles brush entirely within AD. http://po.st/vtcUXD Hope you'll enjoy it! Happy New Year!
  9. In editing of brush can be used Angle and Tilt of stylus. But Angle uses only X axis of tilt of stylus and Tilt uses only Y axis. Is it feature or bug? I can't assign real tilt of stylus to brush. Any suggestions? Thanks
  10. Hi, just bought Affinity Designer. I have tons of brushes in abr format. When I use import brushes, affinity confirm import but I can not find the imported brushes and even the destination folder that Affinity makes when import. And one more question: When I browse the brushes (included in affinity) I see just number and brush "line" but can not see the brush itself (the core symbol)
  11. Hi friends, I have been looking for an answer to my question in the thread of brushes questions but I think none of them are meetings my needs, I think that what I need is firstly to be sure that there is that possibility and then after to exactly know the procedings, I do not want toget fixed in how is it done with Ps or Procreate or any other. It is much more important to know this in Affinity from scratch. And so.....what are the methods for creating customized or ouw own brushes either in vector paths or in pixel painting brushes? For sure....admitting the difference between. both kind of brushes. I may be even more interested in the pixel brushes, Let's say, to have brushes with geometricao shapes, or flowers, animals, textures and so on. Anything. I thank you in advance for your kindi interest. You are a really great team and a great memberhood. Rosa
  12. For a better/quicker painting experience, there should be an option to show brush categories in tabs next to each other (not only in the standard dropdown menu) Something like: https://sslproxy.getsatisfaction.com/sslproxy/SWhAdDNLMG5zdGFuVGlWetRbb8z9kvU2Gl6stkUAoH68YTKjCbb4vV2aPeBt-yRX9gamL-OMbd9TtWAAWI8dQ3jMHzd8j1mu1nGXXHDWBvW_AGPtPuGlBgxBNTMy-g-p8Z-rF39b71r1ULIPxCJkiPtitRyCYAQTROHrxyZhFyaDfXYnW9dgYuxpUp80q0hk.jpg Here on the bottom panel the tabs are presented under each other, but i saw this also as tabs next to each other. This would allow lightning fast access to the brush categories and a much faster painting experience :)

    Some watercolours

    Messing around a bit with watercolours and some blenders. I recently repainted this picture from scratch using the new Watercolour Set, using much more refined tools. Now textures are subtle but perceivable and the final result is more credible. Affinity's engine has been growing a lot since 2015!
  14. There are any shortcuts for brushes available? I want to change witdth, flow, opacity and hardness without moving to the top toolbar. best wishes Marco
  15. How do I get brushes for affinity designer and can I use old brushes I've used in photoshop and how to Import them into a folder.
  16. Hi friends, I have found that when I am using the vector brushes in AD, I cannot take the fill off. It seems that I have managed to do it once in while, but due to pure chance or trial and mistake, I would beg you to give me the ncessary info, in order that I may have control over this tool. Thank you so much in advance. Rosa
  17. Okies, so this has been bothering me for ever since I got the app: when I go into the vexel persona, and try to do some painting, this is what meets me when I try to use the brush tool: And this might be perfectly normal for Affinity Designer, but just because I'm a noob and am used to Photoshop, I think this is weird. I am fully transitioning from Photoshop to Affinity Designer, and Photoshop doesn't display the brushes pixellated. So, I'm wondering: is this normal? If it's not, how do I change it? Thanks! PS: The brushes look just fine in the vector persona.

    Nature Brushes - Sample

    I'm in the process of creating (almost done) a collection of brushes with nature motifs. Thought it could be useful for more Affinity users so I decided to share one sample, the brush regarding the common ivy. Let me know if you like it and if it’s worth sharing the full collection :) Common Ivy Brush.afbrushes.zip
  19. Two rings or marquees (scrolling ants?) the outside indicates the size the inner one to indicate the softness / feather.
  20. I do find the icons a bit small so grabbing the dodge and burn brush is a bit hit and miss. Can I suggest a dock on the top or the bottom to place the favourite brushes? Also take a look at the brush HUD on Aperture. Conveniently placed at the bottom. Call the brush, select the mode (including contrast and a few others you don't list), then you get to the tool control panel (HUD) to adjust. Also as it deposits all the adjustments in your list of edits you can kill them and make further adjustments and modifications later. It is a slick interface and slips into the workflow well. I mention this as so far you are looking very like Photoshop but in fact you may well gather a lot of disaffected Aperture users.
  21. Hey As an amateur photographer, I would love to suggest some options for the develop persona, that would make it really cool and easy to use for any sort of photographer. May I suggest (these features I have seen in other apps, but not many tbh) Some brushes such as a blur and soften and a sharpen brush, along with dark, lighten and saturate and desaturate. I have suggested these before but I really would love them and I think lots of other people will too. May I also suggest two slider options. slider for making the blues either stronger and darker or weaker and lighter, as well as one for greens and browns. I think these sliders would be so awesome and useful for me as an aspiring landscape photographer. Maybe you've had some ideas from these ideas, suggest them because as a user I say "the more features the better, just hide the complex ones, but make sure they're within one click. All this will result in a simplistic UI and beautiful options" Kind Regards GEEKIO (Pronounced: GEEK-IE-O)

    Digital painting in Designer

    Hi all, just some doodling here trying out painting inside of shapes in Designer. Started playing with Paolo's blender brushes he so graciously created. When using them in conjunction with the smudge tool you get some really nice mixing abilities. In the call out shape for instance I painted a mixture of the 2 main colours then applied some "blending" using one of Paolo's spatter blend brushes. It just spatters using the underlying colour and doesn't put any new colour down. Changing the size of the brush changes the size of the texture it paints. For the eyeball, (I didn't start out to do an eye it just ended up that way) I used a mix of painting and blending especially in the white of the eye with the blood vessels and texturing... then in the iris I painted inside the circle shape laying in the colour in the general areas and using Paolo's blenders to really gave it a nice complex feel. I usually add a .01 gaussian blur to take the hard edge off the shapes. it tends to soften the paint work a bit but it's a reasonable trade off. On the donut-pie shape I was just playing with a nice painterly play of light and shadow. The blenders are great for adding that "painterly" feel with tons of control. Again by reducing the blender brush size the blend effect gets smaller and more precise. This is all in Designer, which for me is probably where I will spend most of my time. The fact that I can get these type of results in a "vector" app is incredible. The hardest part of all of this is knowing when to stop! :D
  23. 1) The source and size of the clone brush should show on the image, and if aligned should move with the brush to constantly show where one is borrowing from. 2) The clone control labeling makes absolutely no sense and is inconsistent. On the dropdown panel the size is called "size", on the top of the screen it is called "width"! Size is prefered. 3)Then what is called "shape" on the panel, and what doesn't show on the top at all, is really width. 4)Rotation is nonsensical: on the top it is in degrees, on the panel in % (?) And it rotates the applied area on the image: it should rotate the source area (if it isn't round, in which case it makes no difference). Are you trying to make this obtuse? Look at Photoline for how simple this can be: your basic controls are size, hardness, width, angle (of the source), and choose square or circle(which becomes rectangle or ellipse if width not equal), with the shape of the brush changing on the example panel as you change values. Then you can add more controls jitter. intermittent etc for rarer functions. Fred
  24. Hello I bought some brushes and they have .tpl extension (tool presets). Professional brushes usually use that extension and its really important for sharing and creating new sets of brushes with specific presets. I will love if I can use them. ¡Thank you!
  25. In this video I will take a moment to explain how to use textures brushes and bending modes to dirty up your vector art. I will be demonstration all this while creating a HD title screen for a fictional tv or movie title screen design. click here to view the tutorial video Thanks for watching.
