  1. This is a way to do a little more creative vignette effect. You get lots of control over how and where you want the effect. If you've made it on one picture you can simply copy it to other images. Cheers :)
  2. Hi guys, Are there any plans on updating Affinity with a feather effect for vector objects? That would really be awesome for PSD output, if we use gaussian blur it simply rasterizes the shape, and that's a no no Thank you for a great product, Chris
  3. I'm trying to make some sporty text logo and was wondering how best to do the warp effect where the top is straight but the lower edge/baseline of the text is curved. In illustrator you go to Effects > Warp > Arc lower, but was wondering if Designer has something like this?
  4. When you add the bevel/emboss effect you can change the light direction. The problem is that the shadow should be at the opposite side of the light.
  5. Affinity Designer The problem is when i try to export an object and choosing Selection without background, the Soft Light blending effect doesn't work. I think it is working on the previous version (1.6.3) Maybe you can try my screenshot to make sure. Thanks!
  6. Affinity Photo Workbook arrived in good condition Beautifully designed and produced. The disappearing blues lines are a bit of a niggle when trying follow where they go. The lessons are good and pretty easy to follow but naturally there is heck of a lot to remember. So repeating the lessons is essential for me. This not for dummies. I am having problems with the Disintegrate Effect (Page 398 to 399). On Page 396, Paragraph 2, the instructions read: 'On the Layers Panel select the Smudge layer, click Mask Layer and then chose Edit > Fill. As we've set the Primary colour in the Swatches Panel already, ensure Primary Colour is enabled to fill with black; this hides the entire layer for now but we'll paint it back later. Click Apply.' I follow all instructions faithfully but on selecting Edit Menu > Fill, the primary colour Black switches to White of its own accord. I have repeated the lesson numerous times and always get the same result. Am I a dummy or are others experiencing the same problem? Any help would be appreciated.
  7. Hi I have been experiencing something that I am not quite sure why it is the case. When I have a layer selected and when I want to make an adjustment/change say brighten it, the entire image changes instead of just the layer. How do I do this so only the layer itself changes? If I have a png layer image that has opacity on some areas if I make changes on that image shouldn't it change that image only? Thanks in advance!
  8. Hi, id like to ask if is possible to have in Affinity Designer a effect similar to Ai Zig Zag? Maybe with custom brushes, effects or some kind of trick, maybe? Is that even possible? Thanks
  9. Hello all, I did this halloween graphic to practice working with affinity. I am getting the hang of using a masking layer and creating effects with brushes
  10. Some editors has a nice feature that uses mouse cursor detection. It allows user to move mouse above the image while adjusting the effect (like curves, HSL etc) and mouse On or Off will flip between "Before" and "After". Having a this feature, it would be nice to be able to have a mouse cursor above the adjustment dialog (like HSL) for adjusting and the preview would be shown like now. But when you would move mouse away from dialog to top of the image then it would turn to "before". So you could quickly move mouse above dialog and image to see it switching between to help evaluate the adjustment change.
  11. Current tools for new live layers or effects has a buttons on top right for "Merge", "Delete" and "Reset" But to toggle between adjustment I need to move mouse to layer list and then toggle there the eye. So could that eye to be linked next to "Reset" so the effect can be quickly toggled On/Off with mouse without aiming small box on layer list, and then if not happy, reset it or delete it (as it i between delete and reset)? Edit: Need to add that the "Delete" is so great in that dialog as you might very well notice that the adjustment has no wanted outcome so it is easy just to "reverse" the whole idea by deleting it, without applying it first and then going to list to get it deleted. That "Delete" is a function that makes it so pleasant to use the effects as it is just under mouse cursor. So having a capability to flip it On/Off from same dialog window would IMHO be a big benefit to compare a effect before and after. See as well this idea: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/39855-live-effect-preview-beforeafter-with-a-mouse-hover/ That would be more difficult with a touch screens and pens, why a button to "before/after" would be nice.
  12. hey guys I recently was using Adobe illustrator and I was using the specific tool in it such as effect menu but when I started using affinity I notice that there is no effect panel like illustrator, for instance, to make zig zag effect or wrap extra
  13. Based in a topic here at the forum I made this tutorial to cover how to create a glow effect in letters. ;) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejB93TiS4mU The language in the video is portuguese with english subtitles. Hope you enjoy the video, Pedro
  14. I've been trying to recreate some older work in AD but I'm deeply missing the Contour setting for shadows and glows. I couldn't find anything similar reading the Help topics. This would be analog to the Photoshop feature where you can specify a graph for how the intensity of the effect changes over its spread. This is a picture from an old PS version just to illustrate the setting.
  15. Hi, I have a big picture (11220px x 25393px 300 dpi) for a roll-up made with Designer, and I would like to export as picture (JPG for instance). But when I click on export or rasterize my laptop go crazy.. :-) it overheats and nothing happens! Can you help me I Attach the file but I think there is some problem with large images Thank you sfondo roll-up.afphoto
  16. Please fix this, bug happen by the steps as you see in my screenshot. Cheers. :)
  17. I raise this thread from AD beta forum to here because I cannot find the same report by searching. It also happen to the current store version. Please fix it next beta. Cheers :)
  18. I want to create the effect bellow with Affinity designer: In Adobe Illustrator i just go to effects-arc-bulge. Is there a corresponding way to do this in Affinity?
  19. I have swapped to Affinity from AI because of the one time flat fee, and I love it. It was so easy to pick up to learn, but I still feel there are some features missing. One thing I would like to see added ASAP is an effects dropdown (in the menu with file, edit, AND WHERE THERE SHOULD BE OBJECTS, etc.) Relating to effects, I would also like to see an Appearance panel added.
  20. First let me say, I love Affinity Designer so far and am very excited to have a quick, responsive, reasonably priced vector graphics tool available for Mac & Windows. I am currently using the Windows Public Beta and it is already the central tool in my design toolchain. There is one feature I use all the time in Inkscape and pretty much the only thing I find myself leaving Affinity Designer to accomplish, at least in my all-vector work. The ability to take an arbitrary path or set of paths and arrange them along another path. Below are some visual aids from the inkscape manual showing some of the possible uses of this effect: See the manual entry here. And if you want to try it for yourselves, the menu option in Inkscape is as follows: Extensions -> Generate from Path -> Pattern Along Path I would love to see this functionality inside Affinity Designer, and I think many many creative professionals either already rely on this or don't know about it :ph34r: Thanks again for all your hard work. I am (well, have been) a UI/UX designer and find what you guys have accomplished so far to be spot on. I don't think the way Inkscape presents this dialog is as intuitive as it could be, so if you guys decide to pursue this feature, keep that in mind. I like what you've done so far so I won't bias you with my input, but if y'all want any suggestions for how I would work this into the current Affinity Designer interface, I'd be happy to help.
  21. Hello - I need some help I attached some photo's to better explain the problem I am having. I am printing a Art Board with my finished work - it looks just fine on screen - but when I print it, the finished result is very different. One problem is text is much larger then what is seen on Art Board. The Text has a Bevel/Emboss Effect, but when printed it's all strange and cut off. Under the text is a shadow which was done by copy/paste/flip and then converted into curves to align, grouped and then given a Linear Gradient Fill. The image of the car was given the same Bevel/Emboss Effect and the shadow is the same as the Text. I've never had a problem when I print - this is the first time since the latest update. Am I doing something wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  22. Hi, I was missing an obvious option to remove a layer fx, for example by: 1. context menu (RMB) 2. an entry in menu layers (plus shortcut) 3. via drag 'n drop (like in Adobe Phoooooop) Up to now, I had seen me forced to click on the fx icon and then deselect all used fx (in worst case all 10) to get rid of the fx. Together with all the mouse movements too much clicks and precise mouse work. WORKAROUND (I just found today): w1. CMD+C on an element with no layer fx (and no style) w2. CTRL+CMD+V to paste the fx So now this feature request can be seen as low-prio/cosmetic :) Keep continue working on this great piece of software, Stefan. see also: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/24663-toggle-layer-fx-onoff/
  23. Hi, it would be great to have the same functionality for show/hide layer effect by using the modifier SHIFT as it is already implemented for layer masks Thanks in advance, :) Stefan.
  24. Hi, in diesem Affinity Photo Tutorial zeige ich wie man den Metall Text Effekt erstellt. Da man dazu einen Metallverlauf braucht, der nicht standardmäßig in Affinity Photo enthalten ist, habe ich bereits ein weiteres Video, wie man einen Metall Verlauf erstellt, gemacht: YouTube Tutorial: Metall Verlauf erstellen und speichern Wenn Ihr bereits wisst wie man einen Verlauf erstellt, so zeige ich ihn hier kurz mit den Farbcodes. Hi, In this Affinity Photo Tutorial, I show you how to create the metal text effect. Because you need a metal gradient, which is not included in Affinity Photo, I provided already a video, where I show how to create a metal gradient: YouTube Tutorial: create, save & export a metal gradient If you already know to handle the gradient tool, I show here the metal gradient including the color codes. Farbcodes Metall Verlauf (von links nach rechts) / color codes gradient (from left to right): #656C72 #F1FAF9 #848587 #595959 #919B9D #66686C Have fun with the video. Ciao Jack YouTube Video: Metall Text Effekt
  25. Hello everyone! I want to start by saying that I am by no means a designer, I just started learning about vector graphics and design last week, so sorry if my question is basic. I started using iDraw then I switched to Affinity Designer. My question is: can I use more than one effect of the same type? For example, for the same shape, have two or three drop shadows? I don't see any "+" signs to add a new effect or to duplicate an existing one. Also, can I select and copy the settings for an effect to apply them to another shape? Thank you.
