Using Affinity Photo for the iPad helped me to create this set of over 50 stickers for iMessage! They were created from a high-resolution scan of watercolour splotches. From affinity photo on the iPad I used a variety of techniques to mask out the background and separate the splotches from the paper. I also used it to remove dust from the scan (my scanner is far from perfect). (If masking techniques for removing colour from a textured background is something anyone would be interested in learning, let me know - I’d be happy to put a demo together!) The black ink lines of the charactres were drawn in Procreate 3, and then the file was re-imported so the characters could be grouped and organised, as well as the outerglow tested to give the ‘sticker’ effect. A tiny bit bit of photoshop was used at the end but that was only because I could use it to make an action which would auto export all 50+ stickers - I know the ability to record macros is coming soon to the iPad version of Affinity, and when they do I’ll use that in the future instead! It it was fantastic having the wide colour support as it meant I could really show off the popping reds in my Characters! (I love the one representing Fury, he’s so mad!) Not only was was this a pleasure to do from the iPad, it was my preferred method! Affinity gave me a much better workflow for creating these characters.

The background: I have an AD file I exported to jpeg, which I then imported to Apple's Photo. I then attempted to send an iMessage of the jpeg to someone to get feedback on the image. The problem: When the AD exported jpeg is opened in iMessage, the colors are suddenly completely wrong (even though they appear correct when simply viewing the image in the iPhone app), almost as if a grey filter is over the entire image. Below is a side-by-side comparison of screenshots. On the left is a portion of an unedited photo sent via iMessage, and on the right is the same photo after exporting from AD and sent via iMessage. What's going on here? Thanks!
The shortcuts for tools and other functions is still enabled when trying to share over iMessage. Only letters that is not a shortcut can be written in the message or as recipient. I worked it around by writing the text in an other window and pasting it in the iMessage sharing window.
