  1. Can we add Black, Gray and White eyedroppers in "Levels" and "Curves" to help accurately adjust white balance
  2. Hi, I am having an issue where any colour I select with the eyedropper tool or when I select a colour in any swatch, the colour that is applied will be a grey. I cannot get any colour to be applied with any tool. Selecting any colour (such as blue /red etc) will result in an equivalent shade of grey being selected. I cannot work out what I have done to make this happen! Please Help! Charles
  3. Hi all! I'm a lamster from adobe illustrator. My question is about matching stoke style in AD: 1. I found a similar tool as Eyedropper in illustrator called Colour Picker Tool. Does this tool have the same function in illustrator? 2. When I use Colour Picker Tool, it just copies the colour information. Can the Colour Picker Tool copy the line stoke information as Eyedropper in illustrator? For example, I draw a line with Black stoke colour and 1mm width. Now I want to apply this line style it to another line. In Ai, I need to use Eyedropper tool to inject the style. What shoul
  4. Hi all, I thought I saw in the release notes for Affinity Designer 1.6.5.135 that the bug where the eyedropper tool doesn't work if you use a stylus (only works with mouse) had been fixed. However, I am still having this issue; can't sample and apply color with the stylus. I'm on a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 running WIndows 10. Is this in the works to be fixed? Thanks, Erica
  5. Issue #1: In AF 1.6.1.93 in RGBA/16 with a single pixel layer and nothing else, I use color picker from the Color panel (not from tool palette) and get incorrect behavior as demonstrated by the screenshots below. The color picked seems to be offset with one pixel compared to the box shown. See that the RGB values for the blue boundary are still showing the same white values as outside the blue boundary. Problem only happens if dragging onto the image area, not when dragging the eyedropper to gui elements. Problem is independent from zoom level, happens with 100% as well.
  6. I need to create similar objects with same color/attributes/styles, but different shape The current only way is inefficient (Create a style) Eyedropper tool would facilitate this task Color picker could be upgraded (Would need to rename the tool), adding options (with check boxes) for Copy effects - Copy color (Also gradient attributes) - Copy Stroke style - Etc. Like this: ro That or add a brand new eyedropper tool for the software _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ In addition, I suggest a miscellaneous
  7. I recently saw this post by @ivanozzo sharing a great resource for gradients and colour ramps, but I couldn't figure out how to easily use the eyedropper tool with the gradient in order to copy them into Affinity Photo. After a long time playing around, eventually I sussed it out - so here's a tutorial for anyone else who needs this!
  8. After watching the tutorial about the Frame Text tool, I tried adding a fill and/or colored stroke to an existing text frame. I wanted to exactly match a specific color, so I clicked on the eyedropper in the Text Frame tool panel on the right side of the workspace as was shown in the video. Instead of getting the eyedropper, the color was set to black. Moving the cursor out over the document did not provide an eyedropper. I had the same result whether attempting to use it for frame fill or frame stroke. I'm using MacOS 10.13.6 (High Sierra) and version 1.7.1 of Publsher. Is this a kn
  9. Hello Affinity Photo development team, I'm a newbie to your program, but have worked as a digital illustrator for several years. Affinity Photo is a really nice program - a nice alternative to Photoshop. It could be a great program for digital illustrators and painters... But it is missing a critical option for higher speed efficiency: a fast color picker option by pressing "Ctrl" or "Alt" This is present in Photoshop, Corel Painter, Krita, OpenCanvas, PaintStorm Studio, etc. It is very important to painters to be able to access the color picker quickly. When you hold
  10. Hi, It would be really helpful if you guys add the Eye-dropper to the color picker panel of the Lens Filter adjustment layer. Thanks!
  11. Hello, I'm using Affinity Photo on 64 bit Windows 8. In some files when I use eyedropper tool, the color I pick up is way darker than the original. I wonder why that might be? In other files I don't encounter that issue. I first started that file in Designer trial, and then continued in Photo. Can it be the reason? How do I fix that? It's really slowing down my work.
  12. Using Photo trial 1.6.4.104 . Edit : In Windows 7, Wacom Intuos Pro 4 XL. The problem : The current interactive color picker tool, that is, switching to pick color with alt key, or my case, side pen button configured as alt key, while you are with the brush tool, to very quick pick a color between 2 big chunks of painted color, so to paint with an intermediate color. This is very very fast and common technique for color blending while painting. There are many other painting, illustration or texture making techniques that also need fast color picking. To all of those, this problem applies.
  13. When using alt for color picker magnifying glass seems to instantly launch and makes my color picker do weird things, making it too frustrating to pick colors quickly. When switching to color picker using a shortcut magnifying glass seems not to even begin loading unless i move cursor a little bit with pen pressure applied, which works great for me since color picking is accurate, fast and just like in other software. However if I switch off color picker too quickly (happens alot) or even before I release pen pressure line appears. Please consider doing something about magnifying gla
  14. Hi guys, new to the forum and not sure if this is the right place to post or if there's another post like this. I've looked but couldn't find it. At the moment there's a shortcut to select a color off a layer but it feels very odd from a user's perspective. I see the color change in the color slider/wheel when I select a color but it doesn't automatically apply. I'm not sure if I am missing something here, but when you use the eyedropper tool in Illustrator, you select the layer you want to change the color, use the eyedropper tool and select something else and it automatically changes it to
  15. The magnifier of the eyedropper tool has a grey gradient in the lower half, which I find really distracting when trying to sample colours. It passes right through the reticle! Any chance you'd consider removing it? Thanks.
  16. Not sure if this counts as a bug or a feature request, but currently the Colour Picker Tool does not recognise transparency. (This makes it pretty hard to do icon design for non-retina screens in Affinity.)
  17. I've noticed that the Color Picker Tool does not seem to impact other tools as i would expect, for example the Color Replacement Brush. Am i doing something wrong?
  18. EDIT: sorry i posted in the wrong category.. this is for IPAD As the title suggests. This is a very basic feature. Right now to use an eye dropped color, you still need to click on the new color in the Color Studio Panel each time which is very cumbersome especially if you are trying to blend in or copy multiple colors. This should function like all other similar apps where the brush will instantly get the color you eye drop. Hope this is addressed soon since this app is really great!
  19. I'd like to see the eyedropper tool available inside any color adjustment panel to help choose colors already in the image to sample from.
  20. Hello: How do I activate the eyedropper in Layer Effects/Gradient Overlay/Color Picker? Thanks.
  21. After setting the color picker source to "Current Layer", it still picks using the "Global" setting when using the option-click shortcut for picking a color. Can there be a way to set the source and have it stay that way when using the option-click shortcut?
  22. The eyedropper is off by one pixel up and to the left in the color that it picks up. I am eyedropping a single black pixel on a white background and with the eyedropper right on the black it picks up white, and only with the eyedropper up and to the left one pixel does it pick up black. Screenshots attached. Affinity Photo 1.5.1 on OS X 10.11.6 on a MacBook Pro (17-inch, Mid 2009) with NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB.
  23. When I used the eyedropper tool in illustrator, it copied the attributes of the object that I clicked on with the dropper. For example, when I'm making a square of some color, and I want it to have an opacity of x% and a blending mode of Multiply, all I have to do in illustrator is make a square, then eyedrop another shape with those attributes and possibly change the color (all of my stuff involves layers on layers of differently sized shapes with the same blending mode.) In Affinity, is there a way to do this? The eyedropper copies the exact color on the canvas, and when I want to do
  24. In Photoshop, you can set a simple preference for the eyedropper, to pick the color from the currently selected layer, or the resulting color from the displayed (flattened) set of all layers, or some other options: I regularly paint on a layer underneath other layers, and in PS I can select colors from the layer I'm painting on while I work. In Affinity, when I use the color picker while I'm painting, it picks the resulting color from all layers, which means that new color is dramatically wrong when I apply it to the "underpainting" layer. Is this an existing feature I haven't bee
  25. Hello, I've just started using Affinity Designer for Windows but I've run into a few issues that are quite puzzling (Note I'm coming from Photoshop / Illustrator). I've discovered that the eyedropper icon that appears in the fill area needs to be clicked and dragged to pick a color but is there not an easier way? I've made a gradient and I'd like to sample a color from another object but right now I need to select the handle for the color I want to change, use the eye dropper to select the color and then click the color to apply it. Is there not simpler way to do this? (i.e. not having to
