  1. Hey there- I'm new to Affinity products. I'm working on a mock-up for a mobile app. In Designer, I've grabbed some of the glyphs from the asset manager for the navigation bar at the bottom of the phone display. I needed an image that wasn't in the asset manager so I found something that worked for me from elsewhere. The image file is a png. Now, I'm trying to figure out how to make it function like the included glyphs do. For instance, while trying out different color schemes - with the glyphs - I just have to select the glyph and then choose a color. That's not working with the png file. Is there a way to convert the png to the same file type as the glyph so it will behave like one? Thanks
  2. I am also a newbie although I have used Adobe photoshop for years without a problem with text. I want to print one line of text in white on a coloured sheet and have selected Lucida Bright at 26pt and with the white colour font. Whenever it prints out it is colourless with a thin black edge to define the letter. What could I have done to make this happen?
  3. I'm a complete newbie to Affinity and Designer and vector drawing. I've been working with simple shapes and lines and text while exploring Designer. Once GarryP helped me get started, things were going well until yesterday when my plain and/or italic text turned bright bold magenta. I did not change the color that was the default in the text-color box. I do not know what I did to make this happen, whether creating new text, or moving previously created text. I cannot get rid of this color, or the bold. New text is bold magenta, despite the color box's being black. Moving previously-created text turns that text magenta. Close that document and create a new document—the new text is magenta. Opening Designer preferences, resetting text styles to factory, still magenta. Clearly I have inadvertently changed some basic setting, but what? Where should I look now? Thanks.
  4. When I replied to this, I thought a bit more about the way color swatches work atm. I just don't think there is a need for a color swatch that is not "connected" to the objects that are using it. If I change a color swatch, I want to change all the objects that use it. InDesign does it this way, and it makes sense. I know that Illustrator does have "unconnected" swatches as well as "global" swatches -- but I never understood the reason for that. If there's a use case for "non-connected" swatches, please let me know I believe any such use should still be possible with "connected" swatches only. So all the swatches should behave as if they were a "global swatch". Or do "global swatches" have additional features that I haven't found out yet?
  5. Hi guys, I'm at a loss. To confirm I run Spyder to colour manage my display and I have read the display calibration spotlight before writing this. However, when I export images from Affinity the colours come out wrong. See the attachement. I have included my export settings.
  6. Hello, I was messing around with Affinity Photo the other night and accidentally found a feature that I cannot find now. I was in the Color window and I believe I double clicked on the selected color and a window popped up PREVIEWING color chords. It could have just been showing me near shades to the selected color, but i definitely remember seeing "+1" and "+2" labeling corresponding shades with the actual color displayed. I was able to replicate popping this window up a couple of times before I shut down for the night, but since then have not been able to get this to happen again. I have no problem making color chords the normal way, populating in the swatch panel, but Id rather being able to see the colors before committing swatch space. So did I stumble across a little know feature, or did I fall into the matrix somehow? Thank you for your time, Dustin
  7. Hey y'all, I have inserted embedded documents into my file (layers with images) so that I can duplicate them and change them all simultaneously. I am having difficulty changing the color. Usually, if I place an image, I can select it and then go to the color wheel to change the tone of the image to whatever color I please. In this instance, when I try to change the color of an embedded document it either a) doesn't work or b) changes the whole layer to the selected color and the image is no longer visible. Any tips on how to fix this?
  8. I made a set of gradients for Affinity Designer. My first attempt at AD gradient set! Tada! :D I originally created the set to be used at work (using Illustrator) and I made this to share with the nice folks here at Affinity Forum. Hope you guys find this useful. Thanks! - Maya MAYA-GRADIENT-VOL-1.zip
  9. Greetings I just created a few new cool pixel brushes for Affinity Designer. However when i tried them out I can't change the color. if i create a brush with a black .png it only brushes in black. If i load a whited .png it only paints white. Can someone educate me on what i am doing wrong? Thanks Dave
  10. I am exploring the use of ICC profiles in photo processing and printing. I have had some success, but am not sure that I fully understand why. Here is what I understand (or think I do); perhaps some more experiences users will provide me with some insight. I understand that ICC profiles describe the color space that individual devices are capable of reproducing and are applied so that one device may match another. If so, then in my system there are three devices; 1) the camera/lens. 2) the display and 3) the printer. My lack of understanding is where these should be applied to a photo file. It is possible to assign a profile to a raw file prior to development. This option asks for the "output" profile. Should this be the printer profile? That is the eventual output device, but applying it here before development has not produced a good result. I suspect that output profile means output from the development process, so at this point would apply the "camera/lens" profile. Then when printing, apply the "printer" profile as the "output" profile. The "display" profile only effects the display, how the camera/lens profile is represented on the screen and does not change the file. BUT - as a printer, wouldn't I want the screen to represent how the file will print so the printer characteristics can be accommodated while editing the file? Using the above procedure gives very good matching results, but it does not display the image as it will be printed. I hope I have adequately described my question. Anyone have some insight on this issue? Thanks & Best Regards to All - DK
  11. Hello Affinity Designer enthusiasts, I'm using the 10 day demo copy of AD.Like many here, I would like to move away from Adobe Products since their marketing plan has moved in a direction that is software rental rather than ownership. I've used Fireworks for years. One question that I haven't found an answer to yet that is related to my switching away from Fireworks is: How can I enter a hex number for a color or even rgb numbers instead of using only the sliders? I suspect there is a way, but I'm too new to AD to know it. As an example: #CCCCCC instead of using the sliders to try to achieve the color. ​I use the number entry feature in FWs a lot. Is it present in AD? Even if I could use RGB numbers, I'd do that. Whatever is available in AD. Thank you for your help in pointing me to the right place in this software. :)
  12. Hi, When exporting a file the other day and sending it to someone else they saw different colors on the file. I took a picture of both my PC (left) and the other. I hope the difference is clear. The orange fill of the flowers is more blue. The letters don't have the same bright orange color. I noticed that the color wheels on both laptops look totally different. Can someone explain how this comes and what I can do about it? Thank you! Nils
  13. Can you modify the tint of a global colour? From what I've found you can edit the CMYK / RGB etc. values, but no tint. So if I need to globally change a colour from 95% to 85% tint I have to find every instance of that colour or am I missing something? I've tried so many different ways with opacity and tint, but can't figure it out. Many thanks!
  14. I would like to know if there is such an option as "Selection by color or object." I need to change one color in an open project to another :unsure: . Manually it is uncomfortable to do for a long time :( . I very often use these functions in the illustrator. The choice of color and object does not pay due attention in all similar projects, and this function allows you to reduce time and money :wub: . I would very much like this feature to be awarded, or similar to it, for example the filter by color and outline, text and so on. Thank you for your work, very much I hope for an answer. :)
  15. Hello! I recently upgraded to AP 1.8.2 (on a Mac Mini, OS 10.13.6). I find that the color selection panel is locked in the slider format. if I unlock it, I am able to change it to a color wheel (my preferred format) but only temporarily: when I leave the color panel and then return back to it, it reverts to locked sliders. Same thing happens every time I open a new document. This did not happen in 1.7.3 How can I permanently unlock the panel so I can move freely between formats or at least lock it as a wheel? I have found no help regarding this either in the forums or by searching in Google. Thanks, Mauricio
  16. Hi, Hope all are well. I am a new Affinity Designer, trying to get familiar with all that Affinity has to offer for design and the likes... So here is my question, I am seeking to see how I can keep the image I uploaded in its original color, everytime I import an image it changes to a greenish color, but I can't find a way to keep the original color of the picture/image. Any assistance with this would be appreciated a tons... Thanks...
  17. I stumbled upon an issue with ICC profiles. Not exactly a nasty bug, but an annoying condition that can lead to a frozen app and should be caught. In C:\Program Files\Affinity\Publisher\Resources\icc I had created a subfolder named "other" for all ICC profiles that I don't use. Opening a document that was created using one of those profiles causes two problems: color will look like the neon of the 80ies calling "Document Setup" from the menu will freeze Publisher I falsely attributed such an app lock to a recent OS update. But really, after putting back all ICC profiles into their original place, colors went back to normal and calling Document Setup worked as expected. My proposal would be to somehow detect documents that want to use a non-present color profile and let users decide what to do.
  18. Hi! I love Affinity Designer, BUT this problem is a HUGE headache to me I set a color that looks great in the workspace (within Affinity Designer) to my text, objects, etc. I export it and ALL THE COLORS are extremely OVERSATURATED, a moderate yellow looks like a highlighter yellow, Please fix this issue and help me QUICK! The image on the right is the one after export opened in windows photos, left is affinity designer
  19. Hello , any one knows how can i do this color harmony ? I want to know how can i creat this , i saw a vedio on youtube but it was with photoshop , so anyone knows how to do this with affinity photo or designer ? Thanks Vedio link :
  20. Hi, I'm very sorry for asking this question but it's been driving me insane in the last 2 days. So I have this png file of a bunch of icons, they are all black and white. I want to colorize them to make them super pretty :D Looks like this So I then: 1) flattened the doc just to be sure. There's only one, unlocked PIXEL layer 2) set the color format to RGB16 3) converted the ICC profile to RGB generic 4) selected a part of the (only) layer using the square selection tool 5) pressed the adjustement panel/button and selected "HSL" .... nothing happens. This is odd because it works just fine using a color image (I regularly change eye colors and stuff like that without any issue) So something tells me that affinity doesn't consider black to be a color, but of course if i try to pain over the black it doens't take the aliasing into account and looks terrible. I tried 'filling' the black space with a different color and that doenst replace the black either, it just paints on top (and badly so). So in a nutshell what i want is replace the black and all its gradients of grey that forms the antialiasiang to say, red with gradients of red. I hope this makes sense, again, sorry for the n00b question!
  21. Look like the gradient tool can't use document swatches for choose color and instead only use blended colors. Is there a way to use the document swatches? I did something wrong?
  22. I'm new to Affinity Photo|Designer and also new into the community, so Hiiii everyone! nice to meet you all! ahahahah My little problem is this: my color picker (in both designer and photo) only give-me Blue-ish colors to pick, the images attached shows how it look like. What I did so far: around 2 hours of google search, changed options, uninstalled both Designer and Photo and reinstalled them. Any photo I open stay in this blueish, my color palette only show tons of blue/pick. Guys, please help, I dunno what more I can do to fix this...
  23. Hi guys, I find the Selective Color Adjustment extremely useful with its possibility to adjust not only selected hues, but also tones. What seems weird in it though, is that regardless of the current document color mode, it operates in CMYK primaries. Surely, this works, but wouldn't it be more intuitive to have RGB sliders as an option? How about a more general selective color tool, that would allow hue range selection like in HSL Adjustment, but also with similar tone selection for shadows, midtones and highlights? It could offer a choice whether you want to adjust the selection in HSL, HSV, Lab, CMYK or RGB. Wouldn't such a tool be more straight forward than variety of different tools for the same purpose, that can only be applied one on top of another, distorting the input color for every next one? Think of it: HSL, Selective Color, Color Balance, Split Toning and Shadows / Highlights are all essentially selective color tools, but for some reason each of them lacks some functionality that others offer. I understand that they are important to make transition from Photoshop easier, but Photoshop is a very old software with legacy of limitations and concepts changing over time. Affinity Photo, being a new application designed from scratch, can be more streamlined and logical, while also supporting older Photoshop approaches for those who need them. Why can't we have one adjustment layer where all the tuning based on hue and luminance can be made in one place using same consistent logic? If you care about a possibility to separate adjustments into steps, you could just apply this tool several times, and each instance would adjust different things, but using same simple idea. P.S.: speaking of HSL, I think it should use Lightness slider instead of Luminosity, because Lightness is what L stands for in HSL.
  24. Hi, So my cat walked on my keyboard, and now I can only go for a black grey or white color. Can someone help me to get the colors back ? thank
  25. First i asked that question that question on facebook and it failed. Many didn´t understand that question correctly and told me about the basics about color-management and how that is a bad idea,...... that´s not the question. If i let´s say have a AdobeRGB Document and choose a color with the cmyk-sliders. They are clearly limited and don´t cover the whole AdobeRGB colorspace. The question is to what colorspace are they limited? I changed the default cmyk-colorprofile in the preferences but that didn´t affect the cmyk-sliders in rgb documents in any way, so it doesn´t seem to be based on that. So what are the cmyk-sliders based on?
