  1. I’m following a photoshop tutorial, but 80% of what I know in Affinity Photo is from following Rikard’s photoshop tutorials on his Nucly youtube channel, been learning this way for over a year now. With that out of the way… here’s my issue: His gradient only fills up the x and y axis dimensions of the line he creates (this is what I am trying to accomplish): FullSizeRender.MOV My fill tool (gradient) is disrespectful… it takes up the ENTIRE screen, instead of just the x and y dimensions of my line, I’ve also tried linear, radial,.. etc. None of these help: FullSizeRender.MOV At first I thought this issue of the gradient filling up the entire screen was occurring, due to fill context option, selected on the lower left: So I then chose line context and nothing happens when I tap, long press or swipe my apple pencil along the screen to draw out a line, instead I’m greeted by a green line and a green dot. I even tried adding a pixel layer put a marquee rectangle on it, created the gradient within the marquee rectangle, and I’m greeted with a HARD EDGE (and it’s on soft light blend, it only gets worse on screen or overlay): Is it possible… to get the gradient to just fill up the x and y dimensions of my line… just like the first video in my thread? FYI: blend don’t work whether soft light, screen or overlay… does not help, because the gradient is still covering up my entire screen. I HOPE this is me lacking know how, instead of an app limitation. Any help appreciated, thanks. If needed, file to the project: Depth Tutorial.afphoto
