  1. This is, probably, too much to ask for a program, that's 90% there. Painting is vastly different from photo manipulation. Combining both in one program is great, but while one paints, he doesn't usually need other non-related features and tools, But he needs all of the necessary tools right there, literally at the left finger tip. With this in mind, it'd be good to have a "painting persona" added to the top personas. Things nice to have in the toolbox (left menu): Marquee tool to move, re-size, rotate distort (drag corner anchors) Selection tools (I know, we have a whole sophisticated selection persona, but there needs to be some way to select a part of an image right there): rectangle, lasso quick selection brush magic wand Paint brushes: opaque (oil) transparent (watercolor) Retouch brushes dodge burn sponge (saturate/desaturate) blur sharpen Liquify brush (could be few) Eraser (+ erase to history) Show/hide mixing palette Show/hide reference image (see how ArtRage does it) Fav. brushes (your saved custom brushes). Choosing one automatically switch to the brush type it was assigned to (dodge for example). More - expose other custom brushes by moving all tools up. Bottom controls (sliders and switches). They have to be available without extra clicking and going to a submenus. This is like asking an artist to go to another room to pick another brush from the box every time he needs one. There is enough room horizontally. Brush size Brush opacity Flow Brush hardness Wet paint on/off Finger rejection on/off (optional, can be part of preferences) Show 100% Hide/show controls (full screen) This would make your app a dream for artists too, not just photographers!
  2. Hi there, I'd love to see symmetrical drawing added to Affinity Photo. Minimally, across the vertical centerline, although it would be nice to be able to do symmetrical painting with any number of strokes evenly distributed. More than anything, though, when creating character sheets, it's nice to be able to quickly lay out symmetrical detail live, rather than mirroring after I draw for a while. Thanks, Alec
  3. Been playing with the texture paint brushes again...and sharing the result! Mostly Pixel Persona! Original size 300 x 300mm (300dpi)
  4. 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. The problem resides in several issues that I believe get solved with an easy solution. The magnifier lens that show up once you click on a canvas point (I am clicking, not dragging) to let you better pick the pixel you want is very good for photography but not important for painting. And I believe it is causing to lag the action, has a sort of small time there very noticeable when using very often, very fast (a need for painting-blending, also called glazing technique). Sometimes, if fast enough wont pick the color, at times. It's a bit hard to work so when painting (loosing focus, slowing down, etc). This all by setting the alt key in a wacom pen side button. One very big problem is that very often, a fast click wont pick the color. Probably because it is expecting a drag, not a click like in other software apps. A suggested possible solution : Could it be possible / easy (I have no idea) to add a "not to be default" option so that users can disable the magnifier / dragging ? The eyedropper tool works a bit more like this, although if dragging or keeping it pressed, the magnifier ends up showing up, but you need to drag more/less dry click for it to happen. Well, in any case, not to replicate with the interactive picker the blue marquee around the object that the eyedropper tool forces, that would be bad while painting. Having an "alt + pen click" (no drag, no magnifier) color selection on canvas like in any other 2D application. With not even the magnifier on it. As I believe the estimation/input about if is there dragging or not, or actually displaying the lens, is adding some delay there, and causing some times not to even pick the color. Or never pick it, if fast enough. There even might be photographers wishing to have at least the option to deactivate the lens, so to have a blazing fast color picker, so, I guess is a good thing to add for any group of people, always as an option that does not need to be default after install. This would be huge for me (and I suppose, for any other person painting, making comics, illustration, texturing, etc, etc) , for my workflow. (a reason to purchase, indeed) Too lengthy version here, but I realized I hadn't done a formal feature request, and I was talking about two requests in same post (about digital painting requests in general), mixed with another matters, and it was too long, in any case.
  5. Playing with the brush engine in Photo & Designer and found that Hue / Saturation / Luminance Jitter work differently from other apps… In Affinity the jitter is applied per dab. Compare with Photoshop (and others?) where the jitter is applied per stroke. In my limited experience per stroke is more useful in digital painting for creating subtle variation between painted strokes. Could Affinity have the option to choose how the jitter is applied? Thanks for your consideration.
  6. As a digital artist and Mattepainter the painting component in any software is extremely important. Now with many levels of sensitivity available on the computer and iPad its become something we all lean very heavily on. AP’s dynamics for the pen has an issues I think needs immediate attention. When painting in broad or fine strokes AP struggles with the sensitivity when the pen hits the screen. Random stamps of the texture occasionally are splattered on the page even on the lightest touch of the pen. This becomes extremely annoying by having to undo the last stroke. Painting has become a less free and easy thing to do while im constantly watching out for this. I’ve tried playing with the setting but unfortunately it makes no difference. Ive attached a video where this is demonstrated by light taps on the screen. This is about as hard as I usually paint when moving through a piece I’m working on. So to paint a stroke with the flick of the brush after this contact it randomly creates this frustrating splatter. As you’ll see in the video I show this effect in AP and then move to Procreate, where it doesn’t happen at all. I want to remain painting in AP and keep it as my preferred choice of software. Both apps are great for painting but this is sad AP is not up to Procreate’s pen sensitivity level. Im curious to know if anyone else has experienced this and find it to be a problem?
  7. Is there a way to hide the outlined brush tip? I guess some people might like it, but for me it is totally disturbing, especially with complex brushes. The outline hides faint brushstrokes and makes it very hard to judge if they are correct, especially with large brushes, low opacity and short strokes. I prefer just a dot, or nothing, as I see the tip of the Wacom pen anyway.
  8. Hey folks, I am currently testing AP for digital painting and illustration. I like a lot, but the outlined brush tips (desktop version) can be extremely disturbing: - they lag behind - some complex brushtips with large sizes hide subtle paintstrokes, so it is hard to see what I am painting under the cursor I didn't find a way to hide the brushtip completely. Is there one? If not please consider adding a user preference for that. On the plus side, I like the feature parity of desktop and ios versions. Being able to use the same brushes is also a huge advantage. Regards, Marin

  10. Hey all! This is my new video about painting in Affinity Photo @AffinitybySerif Share please and thanks for watching!
  11. There is this technique I want to replicate in Affinity Photo that can be done in Photoshop, but I can't get it to work in AP (see video link below). What I basically want to do is select all the pixels of an image from all the visible layers by using the Channels window, create a new layer, and then finally fill the entire selection with a single colour that has translated the shades of the selection into transparent pixels (i.e. pure white is 100% transparency, black is 0% transparency, and grey is everything in-between those extremes). Video link in question: https://youtu.be/WZOJqbSBPxI?t=7m1s
  12. Hey guys! Here is my first post here, and this is my video about painting the Monster in Affinity Photo. Hope you like it! Feel free to share and subscribe to my YouTube channel! Best regards, Andrew Bzh.

  14. Hi Serif team, Thanks for the great new update and some fancy new features and bug fixes! Also thank you for addressing the brush tool dynamics in this update. However it seems to not be working exactly as it should be. Ive attached a vid to show how the dynamics should perform with light to heavy taps of the pen. The first demonstration is in AP, as you can see the tip size doesn't change with the light and heavy taps of the pen, nor does it reach the full wide of the brush size. This might be ok if the pen sensitivity button wasn't turned on. Being able to turn on and off the sensitivity is great thing for control. Unfortunately none of this is working. In the second demo (Procreate) you can see how the brush tool response perfectly to light and hard taps of the pen. It changes in flow and size reaching the final brush size at maximum impact. For quick sketching or painting the artist relies on this when placing the pen back onto the page. Having the pen dump a stamp of the brush that's the same size every time can require going back for cleanup and less control for design. Please consider this to be a priority for AP in the next update. Regards Andy
  15. When I use a brush with the wet edges box checked that setting sticks and applies to every other brush I use. Steps to reproduce 1. Open a new session of AP 2. Create a new document 3. Select the brush tool and select one of the basic round brushes. The wet edges check box shouldn't be checked. 4. paint a little on the document 5. Change the brush to something that has wet edges checked. There are some in the DAUB Bristles or DAUB Gouache categories. You should see the wet edges checkbox become selected 6. Now go back and select the original brush used in step 3. You should see that the wet edges setting is still checked when it should be off according to the brush settings.

    Weekend fun character painting. Hope someone likes it. Really quite amazed at the versatility of the old classic smudge as a real painting tool.
  17. Hi, I'm learning some digital painting techniques and hoped to use Affinity Designer for my work. However, I'm experiencing errors when using my pen tablet and light pressure during faster work. Basically, it seems as if: 1. Clicks are registering and therefore leaving single circles/stroke shapes at random times 2. The drawing isn't starting at the beginning of applying pressure, but rather, after a short amount of movement. Here's a video: http://take.ms/D21u2 Can anyone shed some light on this issue? I'm not experiencing the problem in Photoshop or Krita. Thank you.
  18. Now on Skillshare here: http://skl.sh/2GjWV8q Note: I have renamed this class. It was "Create a Space-Themed Illustration". This class covers a range of easy to master skills, from cooking, to 3D rendering, to digital painting. Part 1 – The Pancake Moon In Part 1 of the class, you will learn how to: make pancakes in your kitchen using Affinity Photo, make equi-rectangular projection texture and bump maps out of the pancake's cratered surface using Cheetah 3D, wrap the texture and bump maps around a sphere, and render your pancake moon. We will be using Affinity Photo to create our texture and bump maps, and Cheetah 3D to render the pancake moon. Part 2 – Painting a Starry Nebula With Affinity Photo, you will learn how to: use shapes to create stars and simple lens flares use the standard set of Affinity Photo brushes to paint star fields and a nebula composite your moon with your starry nebula, and fine tune the lighting of your moon. Here is the permanent link to the class: http://skl.sh/2ooIWa9 Note: This link requires a subscription to Skillshare. Please use this link if you already have a subscription, or you are intending to sign up to Skillshare.

  19. Dear Affinity Photo Customer Support (and anyone willing to help) I've been using Affinity photo for about a month now and I love it! Finally something powerful that I can afford while I study digital painting. I do have just one problem that I have encountered that really bothers me though. When painting and using the hand tool thats been bound to a physical button on my drawing tablet (that happens to be a T-12 Cybertablet from Adesso), the paint from the brush tool sticks to the canvas on the place I am touching even though the hand tool is being used. In short, when I have the brush equipped and I activate the hand tool I still leave marks. This is really bothersome as you can imagine since there are unwanted marks all over my studies. I am on a windows Laptop running Win10, 64-bit AsusTek, 16gb RAM. If someone could issue me a fix or lend a hand in any way I would appreciate it. - Thanks in advance Chicken
  20. Finished this to a satisfactory level. Painted on a budget HP laptop that cost me £350. A3 processor and 8GB RAM. Hat's off to the developers. Link to WIP:
  21. Hello Affinity, I'm so glad to see an app like this in the marketplace. However, I can't use it for digital painting and illustration yet because of one MAJOR missing feature: Tablet pressure controlled opacity with the paint brush. As it stands you can set pressure on brush size and flow (among other things) but for digital painters opacity is the most important pressure control you can have. I'd say it's pretty darn important for retouchers as well. Please add this feature soon, because as of now Affinity Photo is unusable for me. Thanks!
  22. Simply an oil portrait, without much editing. Photographed from the canvas, some contrast settings made with Affinity Photo, that's all. Looking forward to feedbacks TNX http://b-bertuleit.de/oil-painting/
  23. Hello, A few weeks ago I got myself a new Surface Book and Affinity Photo. I wanted to test how good the touch screen works and I started drawing something. But I could not do that properly because everytime I put down my hand whilest drawing it started painting underneath my handpalm. In Windows I found the option to ignore touch input, whilest the pen is beeing used, but if I lift the pen too high the same problem occures. Now I wanted to ask the Affinity Team if they have a solution to this problem, maybe theres a option to ignore touch input and only accept the pen. Yours faithfully, Lukas.K
  24. Hey there! Here's a quick tutorial/demo on how to mix vector shapes and bitmap textures in Affinity Designer. Here I'm showing a simple but pretty useful technique I'm applying to almost all my vector artwork nowadays. FREE SAMPLE PACK! I'm also giving away a small sample of my recent brush pack for Affinity Designer called Texturizer Pro. With this sample pack you can have enough to play around and get an idea of what the full set is about. Click on the image below to download this FREE sample pack and watch the video tutorial! Hope you guys enjoy and find this useful!
  25. Like I said in the title, what is the difference between the two programs regarding painting. They look exactly the same, have the same brushes, brush properties and options. Is there something I'm missing or not realising? I personally love the AD for its combination of vector and pixel, so I'm looking forward to paint in Designer as opposed to Photo which would be a traditional choice.
