  1. Struggling to get a gradient to appear across multiple objects within a group. Have experimented with removing sub-groups and changing stroke settings etc.. no difference. See attachment, the items should be mostly red, but instead, they're showing as just the Yellow. Have tried multiple restarts and on multiple laptops with different installs, (but both 1.6.1) -B

    Another color palette: fiesta

    Just released a second color palette with support for Affinity's .afpalette format. It's a set of bright, happy colors to lighten up any illustration or design. Get it at creativemarket
  3. Hi, After the latest update of AD I can't find the noise slider to add texture in colour fills. Is that feature removed or moved somewhere? It was cool to add some texture to flat tones or gradients easily by sliding the noise slider. Any insight is appreciated. regards, Raman
  4. Hi guys I mainly work with 32bit rendered EXR files. When I'm comping rendered objects into backplates, I need to be able to have coloured masks. This is to ensure shadows that are in alpha (masked), creates the correct tone on the backplate. A coloured mask can for example produce a blueish shadow, where a grey scale mask will produce a grey shadow. Is there perhaps a setting I'm not seeing? Whenever I convert a layer to a mask, it goes greyscale!
  5. Application crash upon dragging colour and dropping on gradient stop; can repeat, however does not occur on *every* drag the colour and drop it on a gradient stop event. I *think* the specific issue is that in that area of my document there is a high density of other entities: guides, edge-of-artboard, other vector fills (solid) etc, and it may be that in moving to the given gradient stop, I'm passing over those other items enroute - if this is indeed the issue, there needs to be some better exception handling written if Designer cannot handle improper target entities having colours dragged to them!Tiles Using Artifakt_flag_v2.0.afdesign File is attached for reference.
  6. Hi I'm trying to figure out why original photos viewed on system and external photo viewers looks different than opened in Affinity? I was trying to change every possible RGB colour profile, uncheck "convert working space" option, and "renderin intent" - nothing helps. So - why? Attached image: Left - Fast Stone Image Viewer, right Affinity. (I agree, this picture on left is oversaturated, but it is still an original).
  7. I found a bug and a workaround regarding colour profiles. On the latest MacOS 10.13.2 and latest Affinity Photo 1.6.6 (from the App Store), with an external NEC EA244UHD monitor connected over DisplayPort to a 2015 MBP 15" with Intel graphics - here's how I recreated the bug: take a screenshot using shift-cmd-3 the screenshot for me was of a web browser page with an image created programmatically, where the colours are chosen precisely by me, for example a green is RGB (0, 200, 0). open the screenshot PNG with the preview (press space) or the Preview application (Open) - shows the correct shade of green. open the same screenshot PNG in Affinity Photo and the green shade is different - lighter and more yellow both Preview and AP shows the colour profile name as Display I searched the web incl. these forums showed no obvious solution, but some pointed to a bug in how AP selected a profile to apply based incorrectly on the ASCII name only, which can mean the wrong one is selected. Here's what I did to fix the problem. using Spectraview and an X-rite i1 Display pro hardware device calibrate the monitor, I generated a new ICC profile now both Preview and AP show the colours correctly when new screenshots are taken, as the PNG files now contain the new ICC profile I'm not an expert but I suspect the online suggestions that Affinity Photo was incorrectly choosing the profile to profile based on ASCII vs other/unicode/ID name makes sense. This experiment which creates a different profile name, which here is "EA244UHD 47100533TB 2017-12-13 00-25 D65 2.20". I haven't tested this problem using the MacBook display with no external display attached.
  8. Hi, since i have updated my Windows 10 and Affinity Photo/Designer Software, the colours in both Softwares are wrong, White (255,255,255) appears yellow in Affinity, but when I export it, it's pure White again. I really can not work with this issue, due to the fact that no colour Matches to my designs. I attached some pics from the colour settings and one Artboard, to help you understand my Problem. :-/ Thanks in advance Felix
  9. Pre Export: Post Export: You probably get the Problem I've checked all settings and still don't get where the problem could possibly be..
  10. Hello, Is it possible to make a gradient between severl spot colours in Affinity Designer (without rendering them to Process CMYK)? I just checked, it is possible in Illustrator CC. Thanks, M
  11. Hi, I am having trouble with opening RAW files. It seems to have happened after the programme crashed last night (I didn't bother to restart it as it was past my bedtime) For some reason today, when I try to open a raw file, I am getting a weird purple hue. It seems to be taking a lot longer to open them too. I know it's not the files as they are opening ok in both Cannon DPP4 and Faststone. I have been using Affinity Photo for months now and this is the first issue I have had with it. Attaching a quick set of screen shots so you can see what I mean.
  12. Hi I think it would be great to be able to add and delete separate noods or the little square boxes when you are drawing a logo for instance. When you click on the white arrow tool to be able to individually move the little boxes on the design you have created, it would be so handy to have a tool that you can create new boxes on the line so you can manipulate more sections or take it away. Also, the ability to be able to have the same colour for both the outline and fill, where you drag the colour into the other swatch box or something, just so its quicker and easier than having to save the colour as a swatch or take the pipet and put over the colour you already have. Hopefully, that makes sense. Unless there are already ways to do this that i haven't found yet? Thanks.
  13. We have all had the problem of selecting a sky when most of the sky can be seen through gaps in the leaves and branches of a tree. It can take ages to accurately select every tiny gap to complete the selection of the sky. If we miss a few tiny gaps the result looks awful. Other programs, GIMP is an example, have selection tools which can select all areas of the sky, including those pesky gaps, with just one click. Of course it may be necessary to adjust the settings for that tool to capture clouds as well as the blue sky. If other programs can do it how about such a tool for Affinity Photo? (If you are not familiar with GIMP I'm talking about the 'Select by Color Tool'.)

    Flatiful Color Palette

    I wanted a base palette that I could use on my illustrations, with a range of shades, and highlights/shadows for each. So I made my own: It's a good starting point for illustrations, icons & UI work. There's more than 100 swatches, nicely organized. Comes in several formats, of course .afpalette included. Grab it over at CreativeMarket!
  15. Hi, I was just surfing youtube yesterday and I came across a video by Sean Tucker: At 7:50, Sean uses hue saturation and lumance sliders to edit inividual colours in his image. I was wondering if you can do this in affinity photo. I am interested in buying it soon so any answer will help me in making my decision. Thanks, Jayvin.
  16. Hey everyone, I am trying to figure out if there is a way to create a chord from multiple colors. I've got 3 colors that I really like and would like to find what colors are complimentary to them, to use in the same document. If anyone knows how to do this, even if it's some work-around fix, I'm all ears! Thanks! ps. the hex codes for those colors are #46D2FF, #A071FF, & #666666
  17. Hi When I take a photo from the develop persona into Nix Viveza2 the photo is mauve or pinkish in colour not the natural colours that it was in the developed persona. Why is this and how do I fix it? I have tried several photos with the same result. Thanks Mikep
  18. Hello, I'm very glad that we now have a glyphs browser, but I personally feel that its looks can be improved. Virtually all typefaces are made primarily for use on a light background, and to correctly evaluate a glyph I think the glyph browser should reflect this by having a white background with black glyphs. Right now the dark UI theme shows light glyphs on a dark background and the light UI theme shows grey type on a light background (which is better but lacks contrast). The font dropdown however does have black type on a white background in both themes, which I think is a good choice. Looking forward to your thoughts! Best, Bauke

    A quick portrait

    This morning's random posting. The devil is making work for some very idle hands at the moment. Still – back to the paid work on Monday.
  20. Hello, As soon as I do change a form with the perspective tool, I am no more able to modifiy its colour. Is there a way to change it ? Thank you for your support and best regards
  21. I think that the Layer Effect > Bevel > Highlight / Shadow > Colour selector missing eyedropperLayer Effect > Bevel > Highlight / Shadow > Colour selector is missing eyedropper. All other effects offer this function.
  22. I often choose a colour from a palette then go and find its monochromatic or analogous colour variant. It would be great to have a built in tool to generate these variants automatically. For reference check out: https://color.adobe.com
  23. Hi, TL:DR Set Fill / Paint / font colour change crashes the program when applied to a block image e.g. not a font. Attempts to paint the entire A4 page but takes 15 minutes perhaps more. Why does it take so long to paint a page. Why did it paint a page when it was only a small portion that was selected. Improve logic to prevent this? Hardware i5 2500K overclocked to 4.1gHz, 8GB RAM, 128GB ssd, Intel onboard Graphic 3000, 4TB ssd/plater HD, AMD 5770 1GB video card Creating another master piece and was just changing the colours of the fonts. I then clicked on a block of graphic image and clicked on that to change its colour. Once I did this the computer started to play up with the mouse becoming erratic e.g. not moving smoothly. This got worse to the point I had no response from my computer. After a minute approx I could get taskmanager to start and I could see that Affinity Photo was reporting it is "not responding" At first it was using 1% cpu and 1.5 GB of memory Being patient I waited perhaps another 5 minutes perhaps 10 and noticed that the program came back sort of. I checked taskmanager again and found that cpu use had risen to ~32% and 4.5GB of memory with 0.3% of disk activity. The entire Affinity Photo program screen had a transparent grey all over the entire screen. Normally when I see a program in this state I would conclude it had crashed. I waited some more and found the program returned to a functioning state however my entire image had be painted the font colour. At first I didn't realise it had done this but as I clicked on the image I noticed handles responded. I saved the file "which had ballooned from 2MB to 27MB" in this state and restarted the program and found the entire image was still completely painted in the font colour. I used the undo feature and managed to get the image back to where I wanted it. I then attempted to change the colour again of the block image and guess what it did exactly the same thing and "crashed" I took screen shots including the taskmanager if your interested. The saved files seemed excessively large as for an A4 size page. It is a very basic image with text a certificate of a swimming milestone for ABI swimmers. Thought I would have had this done and dusted in say an hour or so but I have spent a considerable amount of time on it due to the "crashes" and writing in this forum.

  24. IU'm converting from Photoshop and struggling to understand something - In the colour panel, there are 2 colour circles which appear to correspond to a 'fill' colour, and a 'stroke' colour - whereas in Photoshop they relate to Foreground and Background colours. Does Affinity Photo have a concept of Foreground and Background colour or not? In Photoshop I can create a gradient from the foreground colour to the background colour - how do I do the equilavent in Affinity Photo? I used the colour dropper tool to select 2 colours in a photo, but as soon as I switch to the gradient tool I don't seem to be able to use the colours I picked, as a white gradient fills the entire layer and I cannot find an option to go from Fill to Stroke colour.
  25. For some reason, the AFD interface is scaling to beige where it should be scaling to white. This doesn't affect any final renders, but while it substitutes white for beige in the interface, I can't make any accurate design judgements involving colour. So this is happening on my new computer. I booted up my old computer with Designer and it doesn't have the same issue. Whites are white. I open up the same files on my new computer and whites are now beige (see attachment). Note in the toolbar where fill and stroke should be a red line in a white box, its a red line in a beige box. I tried changing the renderer from my GPU (nvidia) to WARP but this has had no effect. I am running Windows 7 on both computers and I have attached my Nvidia information file for more details. I have not noticed this problem in any other applications running on my system. It is not a monitor calibration issue. I have no idea what colour profiles I should be selecting in preferences. I have attached a screenshot of my colour settings. NVIDIA System Information 01-05-2017 09-51-49.txt
