  1. I've been trying to work on mastering skin tones and removing colour casts. I've followed this tutorial but have had no success with my results. I can do all the steps but it seems I not able to nail down the right colour from the skin tone palette to match? I would love to be able to trust the numbers instead of my eyes as at some point my eyes start to deceive me. I love how you can just match the numbers with this method, I'm just need help figuring out which numbers to match. Someone else suggested using the vector scope and curves to keep an eye on my skin tone. I love how they
  2. I photograph and retouch rings and other jewellery. I've bought AP with the intention of getting rid of 12€/month Photoshop. However, while there are (more or less annoying and slow) workarounds for some of the missing features, there are a few things that AP simply can't do, which is rather infuriating because it means that I still have to keep paying Adobe to get them in PS. So here's a list: 1. A way to stroke a curve or at least to use it as a guide for a brush. Every now and then I end up with a photo that looks a bit too flat. To make the edges a bit more visible I create a path (cu
  3. Hello :) Not quite sure how to explain my problem, but here goes: I am working on a logo design and I used some curves and some type to make it. I would like to make it different colors, so I can present it to my client. The problem is, that I have to select all the curves and change the outline color for them, and then select the type (which I already converted to curves) and change the fill-colour. Is there any way that I can make the logo into a cohesive vector-file, so that I can select the whole thing and change the colour? This would also be helpful for exporting it, so the cli
  4. After dividing the multiple ellipses, instead of required shapes, it caused 100’s of extra curves
  5. After making adjustments using levels or curves strange artifacts appear as lines on random parts of the image. I have tried this on various different images and the same problem occurs. The problem occurs after merging adjustments. Below I show a sample of what is happening. I have circled the artifacts in red. This is incredibly annoying and makes the software virtually unusable. I am using windows 10 and latest version of Affinity.
  6. I think that there should be a video showing how to use L.a.b. colour to rescue flat files. I used Photoshop for years for this purpose now I am getting to grips with the different process in Affinity. The present videos do not do justice to this powerful tool. I have attached a before and after edit which only took a couple of minutes using Curves in L.a.b. For your info they are in the South Australian outback. There is much more to L.a.b. and it is the main reason that I chose Affinity when I gave up Photoshop Eric
  7. ## What I Want & The Problem I want to create a large circle with smaller circles following the inner-line of the larger circle at differing positions on the inner-line; yet every time I rotate the smaller circles within the larger one they begin to either clip the larger circle (going over its edge) or become pulled away from the edge (going off of the path) at certain points. (Both circles are perfect circles) ## Approach I've setup ruler guides at the center points on the horizontal and vertical nodes of the larger circle and I snap the center-edge of the smaller circle to the larg
  8. New image. New pixel layer. Soft brush. Blob. Curves layer above image layer. RGB. Select Alpha. Adjust curve. Works just fine. Drag curves to child layer position (mask or clipping). Doesn't work. Standard RGB curves work fine above and as child positions. I tried it also with Channel Mixer and this also only works for alpha adjustment in the in-line position.
  9. Hello, <deutsch see below> I have constructed a Bavarian flag (diamond flag) in the designer: - many rectangles 30 x 1000 directly to each other, grouping - Copy the group, rotate by -51° - Rotate both groups by +67° - Colorize half of the resulting diamonds in blue, the rest in white or transparent, so that the laser does not perceive it as a shape afterwards. This worked so well. I save this as a future base for Bavarian flags. Now I need a strip 170 mm x 40 mm of it. Rest should disappear or be finally deleted. For this I marked both groups and cut th
  10. Hi, I intend to realize a design from affinity designer with a laser engraver on wood. The design contains for example letters. I have converted these letters into curves. For the laser I now need a second version of this letter, shrunk by 1 pixel from all sides. I know this for example from Photoshop. There a selection can be selected 1 pixel narrower. Can I get that in the designer with a curve also somehow? Thanks for your help Regards Sepp Deutsch: Hi, Ich beabsichtige ein Design aus affinity designer mit einem Laser Engraver auf Holz
  11. I have a question about curves / shapes inside another (parent - child). When selecting shape or closed path containing curves, stroke modification change only parent item. To change children strokes, they have to be selected separately. When items are grouped, there is no problem - changing group stroke make effect on all items in group. Is there a way to change child property when changing parent, or to select both, parent and child, to apply format for all items.
  12. Hi, when using a RGB document and then a curves layer with LAB color space, affinity becomes totally slow. I added a DOF filter like James Ritson in his 1.9 Youtube today, when you mode the center it takes about 1 second to update. rainbow lab curves slow.afphoto
  13. What do the experts say: add a curves adjustment, select the alpha channel select the color picker Should the picker select the alpha or the lightness value to find which part of the curve to ajust? In my experiments, it selected the lightness, which might be not what you expect when modifying alpha. curves alpha picker.afphoto
  14. Hi!! Would you please give me some advice? A lot of times when I am trying to create a circle, no matter what I do, it ends up looking like a 3rd grader did it. As you will see the spiral at the bottom of the first S, I just cannot get it to look any better than that! No matter what I do to make it look better, it ends up looking worse than this! Could you please share some suggestions? Thank you! Wilson
  15. Hello, I think this is a bug but not 100% sure. In a nutshell, using the picker to create a curves node in a specific color channel (within the curves tool) does not place the node according to the color, but rather according to the overall luminosity. I'm using Affinity Photo 1.8.5.703 on Windows 10. I first noticed it with a photo I was editing in Lab Color mode, but I can repro with a fresh document with a simple color gradient. I've also reproduced it in RGB mode, but let me outline the steps in Lab mode: Create a new document. Convert to LAB Color mode. (I'm not sur
  16. Hello, I have just recently started getting into Affinity, and so far I'm really enjoying it! Today I wanted to try something a friend told me he does in Photoshop, but it appears (to me) to be buggy in Affinity. I have an image in Lab color mode. Create a curves adjustment layer (it shows as default the Lab "Master" channel). Switch to AOpponent channel in the curves dropdown. Click "Picker," pick a spot in the image, and drag slightly up/down to create a curve node. What I would expect here is a node on the curve corresponding to where that pixel lies on the
  17. I made a series to curved shapes of increasing size that I would like to flatten into a layer so I can fill the spaces with different colors/gradients. I see lots of advice on converting raster to vector but not the other way around. Can Should I convert the curves to selections? I feel really lost here.
  18. Help! I created a logo using mismatched font sizes for a custom upper/lower case mix. I converted the text to curves, then manipulated using stroke weight to even out the marks. I was working away on white background and client has approved (and loves) this design based on seeing jpgs. I need to reproduce it as clean vector art and now discovered I'm in a mess of trouble. When I turn the stroke to "none"/invisible, the text bloats out. I'm stuck, any pointers or tips? Many thanks. -Karen
  19. I've been wondering, why there it no option to convert vector brushes to curves? I'm in Designer Persona, brushes supposed to be vector, but the only vector thing about them is that I can edit the trajectory of the brush. Yet, when I wanted to make a 100% vector file out of it, I realised that vector brushes are exported as bitmaps. So, even though the brush tool is labeled as "Vector Brush Tool " it actual isn't. This is all so mixed up - I would expect such behaviour only in Pixel Persona, not in the Designer Persona, where all should be 100% vector graphics. Any tip how to deal with
  20. I am trying to create a inlay template for a CNC router. It is a simple design of a cigar with trailing smoke. The pocket for the template consists of the outline of the design, filled with gray, no stroke thickness. The inlay is comprised of three different wood varieties. When trying to separate the sections of the inlay design into 4 geometric shapes, the fill function respects the curves rather than the individual geometric shapes. Any advice is appreciated.

  22. Hi all I am fairly new to affinity designer and this kind of software on general. I drew a shape using the pencil tool and without realizing what expand stroke does I selected it. Is there a way to undo this? I tried selecting all and converting to curves and I tried using the divide option but so far nothing. Thanks!
  23. Hi, so I have quite a strange issue. I was making a logo for my friends winery. I painted it and then digitalized it so she would get vector to use right. I was just in Designer persona for vectors using brushes from this library. The issue is that when I am in the affinity designer the logo itself looks ready, with transparent background etc. but when I export it to eps, white backgrounds behind the shapes appear. I was doing a little research, ticked all the boxes which was supposed to be ticked nothing helped. Then I tried to put the bad eps file back to Affinity and see what is the pr
  24. Hello, I've created an object using multiple curves and added them in one using the Geometry tool. Now, I would like to transform the shape (for example bend it in the middle), what would be the best way to achieve this? Thanks,
  25. Hi! I wan't to suggest a feature for the Curves adjustment tool. Long story short I've started to shoot color film photography and use affinity to convert the negative film into positive ones for then further process, but in the guide i'm following for converting negatives, the guy uses Photoshop. you drag the diffrent RGB channels before they start clipping, but in affinity its hard to know/see when it starts clipping.. you can eyeball it but you wont get the best results. I plan on doing this process with my film for finer control over the negative converstion alot.. So this little
