  1. Hi, I am new to Affinity Designer (a week) and need some guidance. I have a simple problem that I cannot seem to get past. I'm trying to reduce the weight of a font and cannot seem to do it. I am using the PilGi font and would like to reduce the weight. - Thus far I have been converting to curves and adjusting it manually but am not 100% happy with my work. I am struggling with keeping the lines smooth. - I have also tried to create/edit text style as it seems to have that option, but it is greyed out. I would like to just dictated the weight of that font. Please help, thi
  2. Attached is a simple tones bar that can be used in AP for: Assessing luminosity of parts of an image. Constraining curves adjustments to specific tones. Variable luminosity-based selection and edit. Details on origin and use are included in a pdf. mono-tones.zip
  3. It's nice that Affinity Photo has got such good support of the 32 floating point mode but it is somehow unfinished. There are particularly two things that I desperately miss: 1. The ability to show the 32 bit float color values in the info panel. How should we work accurately with 32 bit float values if they are displayed nowhere? All that I can see are the conventional RGB values from 0 - 255 but these are meaningless in 32 bit float. 32 bit float per definition contains color values below 0 (actually a bad thing) or above 1 (actually a good thing). 2. Please make the curves dialogue
  4. In Affinity Photo 1.5.2 applying curves to a previously rotated layer and afterwards merging the mask with this layer creates an unintended blur (cf. attached screenshots and AP file). Interestingly, the effect does not happen if the layers are merged with "Merge Visible". Could be a bug. (The "Force Pixel Alignment" setting was turned on.) Steps to reproduce behaviour: Duplicate layer and rotate (eg. by 15°) Apply curve Merge mask with layer ("Merge Selected") Kind regards, Anitram test_NEU.afphoto
  5. Hey, I'm new to Affinity Photo and I would love to know how to finish or add a curve/line between 2 separate curves. Enclosed you will find a screenshot, so that you can understand better what I mean with this issue.
  6. Attached is an AP file containing just a group of adjustments. Copy and paste the group as a child of an image (or above if you like). Then open the Curves, HSL or Vibrance sub-groups and double-click on any of the adjustments to tweak blacks, shadows, mid-tones, highlights or whites. It's quite simple - just a curve in Blend Ranges for each. You can constrain changes further with masking. You can also use it in conjunction with macros from a previous post (https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/38379-luminosity-mask-selection-macros/), for example to preview area of the ima
  7. I made some curves adjustments for AD and AP which I'd like to share with you. the attached Affinity file features embedded documents so that you can easily preview the effect of all curves on a single photo and then choose a curve that fits best/ gives you a good starting point/ idea. You can add them to your AP though opening the document, selecting each group, selecting the "curves" adj, so that it's panel opens up, click "add preset". (I've made a feature request to make that easier) You can then access them by the "view > studio > adjustments" panel whic
  8. UPDATE: New post including macros here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/38379-luminosity-mask-selection-macros/ I've been experimenting with doing 'luminosity masking' with curves and blend ranges. Here's the result. Attached is a 'photo' file with three groups - just copy and paste one of these into any photo, either at the top level or as a child. Then open the group and double-click the curve to adjust just the named luminosity range (eg. 'mid tones'). As it's a curve you can also do it selectively by colour. It works by constraining the blend range on each cur
  9. I see how to save presets for Curves, but I don't see how or where to apply them. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks.
  10. ...me again - I am determined to learn this software (it's actually been a blast, just have so many basic questions - thanks for your patience) With the help of MEB, Alfred, R C-R, Callum, and MANY others I have learned a lot but am certainly still in the novice category. I have a relatively simple image (1 - 2 layers) that I want to save in my AD Assets-Panel (a custom panel created for this project). I've saved/moved a number of other images into this panel previously with no problem, simple click/drag operation. However, with this particular layer I'm seeing something I haven't see
  11. Thanks in advance friends... ...when flattening into a single pixel layer, do I first need to rasterize the grouped layers? Not sure how to do this, i.e, I'm unclear on the steps involved, and the proper order in which to perform them. A brief walk-thru would be greatly appreciated. FYI - I am wanting to manipulate the Flat image (bend, curve around a cylindrical surface such as a large barrel or a utility pole, alter perspective and/or viewing angle, stretch by pulling/moving nodes independently of each other, etc). greateful for your help, -Christo
  12. I wrote this on twitter and was recommended to do it here, so let's have fun. I wonder if it would be possible to have a Curve editor for the saturation as in Davinci Resolve. It's very powerful and easy to use and could speed things up to control saturation by their luminance level without going to masks. Of course, their other curves are very useful too without the need to touch sliders or masks but the Luma makes desaturate the shadows and highlights a breeze. Thanks and keep up the great work you do!
  13. 1. Is there any way to constrain the movement of the handles, (e.g. 45°) when editing the nodes? 2. Is there anyway to select different curves by dragging the tool instead of clicking on each curve when using the node tool? Thanks for the help
  14. Hey Affinity Crew! First of all thanks for you brilliant work on AP and AD! I'm not sure if this is a feature or a bug. I try to join two half circles which are align in the middle. I select the two nodes as shown in the gif below. Why does AD join the unselected nodes and not the selected? ❗️ After several tests I find out that moving the top node of the right shape 1 px to the left the two curves joins correctly. ✅ Is this a bug or a feature?
  15. 3 suggestions. Firstly, when deleting nodes, AD should try to keep the original curve. The current algorithm leaves a almost straight line between the two remaining points. This makes cleaning up curves much easier (since the couture function is a bit node crazy.) Secondly Node alignments. I was doing an organigram chart and a quick align nodes would have helped a lot to work more quickly and cleanly. I could try guidelines but for this function it can slow things down a bit. Thirdly, nodes welding. The way that nodes join is not good, when I break open a curve where it intersects

  17. Hi, I am another user interested in Affinity Photo as an alternative to Photoshop. I have been familiarizing and playing with it after installing the beta version for Windows on my computer. Overall it is OK. It is somewhat different from Photoshop and this will require me to go through some learning, all of which is fair and expected. A part from bugs that need fixing, I think there is space for better implementation of some functions some of which are being reported in this forum. I am adding one myself for the Curves function (under Tones in the Develop Persona). Unless I am

  19. In Draw Plus I used to be able to do some image manipulation from text converted to curves. (Unfortunately I cannot upload an example as it will not open with Affinity.) The steps were: insert image add art text above image select both and crop to shape convert to curves with node tool pull the curves around. This left a graphic which could be manipulated in such a way that curves could be pulled around. Where the outside edge of the letter was pulled across the flood colour was pulled across. If the edge was pulled over one of the other letters, the coloured area of the second letter would
  20. Hello everyone I recently got Affinity designer after years of Illustrator. I love the program but am still getting the hang of it. Can anyone tell me how I can get the curves I want whilst using the pen tool? Just like on Illustrator, I click once with the pen to create a point. I click again to create the next point. The line path from point A to point B has a really wonky curve and is not at all what I want. This mainly happens when I'm drawing clouds or trees. I can't seem to get the perfect line and curves that I want without using the node tool to edit my lines or just using sm
  21. In the attached screenshot I am trying to merge the red box and the blue line. My purpose is so that I can then select and move one of the side nodes and have all three protruding lines stay connected to it. Using the join curves button doesn't seem to accomplish this and using the combine function removes the blue line entirely. In Illustrator creating a new path off of another one automatically merges them – in Designer it creates a new curve on top, which is keeping me from making the shape I need :( Is there a way to combine these curves the way I described? Thanks!
  22. Hello, and thank you for Affinity Photo; the world needs more alternatives to you-know-what and Affinity has some great features. Some observations about plugins, some may have been mentioned before. The plugin image preview is not color managed, making it difficult to adjust color. Dropdowns on the plugin UI (with FilterMeister plugins anyway) only show two menu items; the arrow keys must be used to scroll down. I do not see a progress bar after the filter is displayed. And I have had two crashes so far on opening plugins, which previously opened. Here are some plugins to work with a
  23. Hello, this lines/curves anti-aliasing thing was probably reported multiple times but I thought i make a vid on it jsut in case. Cheers! https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/22340015/Curves%20Problem.mp4
  24. When using a curve masked to a specific area to adjust the brightness values of skin tones this causes the saturation values to increase, so it is necessary clip a HSL desaturation adjustment to it to bring the values back in line. I have tried every combination of clipping and masking these two adjustment layers together with no success. In PS this is the core of beauty photography retouching. Passing the adjustment down through clipping is a standard behavior of adjustment layers clipped to another adjustment layer with mask. Here are screenshots with all the attempts in the layer tabs as
