  1. Does anybody know how one can make a page curl effect similar to Photoshop? I can see the functions "lattice distortion" and "perspective" but couldn't manage to create a page curl effect though. Thanks for your help! Kind regards, Isabelle
  2. Hi Affinity Community, I am looking to create a circular visual with text and a profile (which shows elevation and distance) that curves around the edge. I have been looking at this thread: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/131951-text-alignment-in-shapes/&tab=comments#comment-726530 And have found useful info for setting out and aligning text. I am also looking to warp this rectangular image onto the outside of the circle. I'd want to adjust the scale of it, so would transforming into a donut would be the best way to manipulate it? These would
  3. Hello, I was wondering if within Affinity Designer is there a "Free transform tool" to allow perspective distort with shapes, this is something that can be done within illustrator where you can take two points and can move them together or further apart with equal distance like the example below. You can kinda do this with the "Corner" tool set to straight but this is set to only one angle when perspective distort can change the angle. Thank you for your time and I hope you have a great day.
  4. Hi guys, some of you might be wondering if there's a skew or distort feature in Affinity Photo. So in this video, I will show you how to use and where you can find Skew, Distort, & Perspective feature in Affinity Photo. I hope you enjoy watching this video, thank you!
  5. Please add an Envelope Distort Feature, A function that lets you warp text and shape paths
  6. I have traced logo in Affinity Designer. I have object open book cover. I want simply put logo adjusted to cover. Idea ilustrate sample picture: On X and Y axis is simple - click on object, put value in navigator or move by Move Tool [V]. Using small circle I can rotate object. I want distort object to achieve effect similar to circle with shape on the left before text Dodo Case - it is what I mean by adjust in Z axis. Normally I would use distort or mesh tool but in AD is not available. I try select object and use Node Tool [A] to make this, but I'm not very happy with result. I have
  7. Hi guys, I'm having trouble to find a way to fit an image to another's perspective. In photoshop I use the free transform tool. Unfortunately I wasn't able to find something similar here on the iPad. The closest to it is the Shear/Rotation, but that's not flexible enough for my needs. Can anyone please help me? Thank you
  8. When using Filter > Distort > Shear, I can move the nodes by dragging or using the arrow keys. However, it would be good if I could enter formulae to describe how a node moves. For many purposes, this would be much more convenient than using Filter > Distort> Equations (which can do the trick). I have reported in the Bugs forum that moving the nodes with the arrow keys has a bug. Thanks to @MxHeppa who raised this problem in my thread on Warping Test onto a Wave. John
  9. I've long been waiting for warp/distort tool but it hasn't been implemented yet. It's time to add it to the current version or version 1.9.
  10. I don’t get it! From the reviews I’ve read before getting the Affinity Designer for the iPad, I was under the impression that this is the best design app ever! How does the best design app ever not have a Free Transform tool or options?! I’m totally frustrated and wasting a lot of time to figure this out, because I simply can’t imagine that a “design” app doesn’t allow me to distort an image. And the idea that I have to buy another app and add to the work and time, just to transform a simple image, and disrupt my work flow! Could someone explain how this happened? B
  11. I have a substantial issue I am hoping to resolve. I do a lot of architectural retouching, and I often copy-paste small elements all over an image, often from one side to another. I always have to distort/perspective/warp these objects to make them match up. Every time I move or distort an object on a layer, the layer increases in size by the amount of change. So if I copy/paste a region of pixels, then move it across the image to the other side, Affinity thinks the now transparent pixels somehow still have content, and increases the layer size accordingly. If I Command-Click the lay
  12. Is there a way to distort vector artwork along a defined shape? Is there a way to simulate tilting it backward into space, skew or warp the artwork?
  13. Let’s see if I can explain what I’m trying to do in Affinity Photo. I have some photos which I got using a scanner app on the iPhone. Some of them ended up distorted, becoming too narrow. What I want to do is to correct that manually, not by guessing what the correct width should be and inserting digits, but simply to be able to grab a handle/node and stretch the photo until it looks right. You can do that with shapes if you convert them to curves, at least in Designer, but so far I haven’t found how to do it in Photo, manually, by just stretching the photo until the width looks right.
  14. Why is there NO "Envelope" or "Warp" tool in Designer?! It's absurd! Envelope was there in Serif DrawPlus. Creating arc'd text (not on a path) is a BASIC text modification. With all the complex things Designer can do, why is this missing? This has been requested for years!
  15. In a recent post in Questions, @Maxxxworld asked how he could warp an image to apparently wrap it around a bottle. I posted a solution to his problem there, which I expand upon here. Consider the facing semicircle of the bottle as seen in this diagram: The visible part of the label extends from -90 degrees (on the left, not shown) to 90 degrees on the right. This will correspond to the width of the original image. This will project onto the final width of the image (the line below). The final width is less than the original width by a factor of pi/2. A bit of trigonometry shows
  16. Bug 1: Embedding a document into another one and rotating it doesn't rotate the light sources. Reported this for the previous version already, original report: Bug 2: Aligning to masked object behaves differently from aligning to masked curve I reported this here already: Bug 3: Alignment drop down menu can not be moved to a panel Feature Request: Alignment drop down menu can not be moved to a panel Bug 3: Copying the style of one object to another changes the settings. Steps to reproduce: a) create a rectangle, size doesn't matter b) right c
  17. I – surprisingly – couldn't find anything substantial on this topic here, so I'll start a new one... (and I hope I haven't overlooked some feature of the app that actually would have made this request unnecessary) As it is, I dearly miss something like Photoshops's "Free Transform" in Affinity Photo. In AP the whole transformation business is – to me – rather clumsy and really not ergonomic at all. It can be really tedious to sort of "model" a pixel selection to certain shape by using a combination of scaling, rotating, shearing and distorting (free or in perspective). In Photoshop –
  18. The video is dedicated to the topic "How to Transform a Photo into a Brick Wall Portrait" in Affinity Photo and those people, who want to learn this very easily with step by step.
  19. Dear serif. I am a logo designer. I bought affinity designer for logo designing. Every logo designer needs mockup But affinity designer doesn't have warp effect so you can't have mockups. The only way to use mockups is by buying affinity photo (50$). Dear serif. Be sure that i won't pay another $50 And if i didn't get the warp tool in the next update be sure that i will leave this program
  20. Adobe photoshop has a feature called warp that I would love to see in Affinity Photo. When you click on the warp feature, it looks similar to the perspective feature in Photo (with the grid over the image). The difference with warp is that instead of only the four spots (points that can be dragged) on the four corners, each intersection of the grid is a moveable point. This is particularly useful when trying to make shadows that make papers or cards look curled. The warp feature allows the user to bend a shadow in the center of a side instead of just pulling out the corners. I'll attach an ima
  21. Hello, How to distort text like in Adobe Illustrator like a flag or arch ? How to distort horizontly or verticaly ? Thanks for advices.
  22. Conversion of a rectangular image to polar co-ordinates using Equations is not straightforward. A major problem is that the origin of the rectangular Cartesian co-ordinates is the top left, whereas for a polar display, you would typically want the origin on the midline, probably near the bottom. The following equations assume that the origin is in the midline along the x-axis, and at or near the bottom on the y-axis. First select Filter > Distort > Equations and enter: x=w*atan((x-w/2)/(h/a-y))/100+w/2 y=h-sqrt((x-w/2)^2+(h-y)^2) The expression (x-w/2) displaces the horizonta
  23. WARNING: for the technically-minded only! The Noise functions in the Filters > Distort> Equations facility are supposed to add (unspecified) noise to an image. The only description I can find of this is in the video by James Ritson. He first duplcates the layer and then uses either noise(x*y)*a or noise4(x*y)*a in his equation. This produces a grain-like effect over his image. The documentation for equations is limited. There is the Expressions for field input in the Help system which gives, under : Noise(seed/x,y), an explanation: Generate 1D noise either from a seed
  24. Can you guys please port over the distort feature from Serif DrawPlus or PagePlus into Publisher? This has been announced 5 years ago to be on the roadmap for Designer and still is not there. Today, I am using the Distort from PagePlus (=2015) or CorelDraw7 (=1995) to do this and copying the results back into Designer/Publisher. Quite embarrassing.
  25. I'm currently test driving all of the Affinity products in hopes of leaving Adobe's Creative Cloud, but am coming up just a little short on some key tool necessities. The biggest hole I can see is the ability to distort or free transform vector nodes, whole objects or outlined text (curves). This is a tutorial on creating 'curved' text using 'free transform' tools in Illustrator from 2000: http://www.balloontales.com/curved-type/ Or selective scaling when nodes are selected. Here's an example of the function; keep in mind this isn't about WHAT is being created, it's the 'how'. http:
