  1. Hi, i have just tried the Affinity Photo trial, please move this topic if i'm posting in a wrong section. I have two problems with AP during the limited time i used it, first of all, the patterns break when loading a PSD file, i'm not sure if this has been addressed elsewhere or if there's a workaround for this as i'm very new to the software and i couldn't figure out a way to get it working, short of recreating the pattern and trying to apply it in a similar way as it was looking before. Was this an issue with my particular instalation/software/hardware configuration or is this an issue you are aware of/working on resolving? The second issue i had goes a bit deeper, so in... Affinity Photo's biggest competitor... you can apply multiple layer effects of the same kind to the same layer, allowing you to create for example two outlines or a gradient glow/shadow. I didn't find anything of that nature in this program, furthermore PSD files i opened with AP that had multiple layer effects applied to them broke, not permanently, just didn't display properly. You know what i mean. Maybe that option is already there but i was just not able to find it, and then why would imported files break if that was the case? Is this also something you are working on resolving? Overall i was very pleasantly surprised with the program, the workflow was pretty similar to what i'm used to, might even consider giving it a shot past screwing around with a few files and effects on a trail version but those two issues just sprung up on me during the first time i tested it and they are a pretty big deal to me. I don't know if that's an official statement but i've read many times in reviews and recommendations of the program that it is able to properly interpret complex PSD files without issues and breaking patterns and layer effects are a pretty big issue in my workflow.
  2. Hi guys, Could you please help? Look every time I design something in Affinity after I export it, it is blurry. Do you please know why it came out blurry? For example I design a pattern and I export it as PNG, JPEG, it came out very blurry. Is this normal? or how can I keep the vector quality not blurry? Is there a way to fix that please because when see vector design, they are very clean and not blurry. Is this cause of the sizes? The document is 8 x 8 inches?
  3. Hi. I would like to know if there is anything in Affinity designer like the Adobe Illustrators transform effect? (See video below) I am wanting to make complex geometric patterns. I know about power duplicate in affinity but it seems like there is far much more control with the transform tool in Illustrator, plus it saves a lot of time. I have posted an example video below from Adobe Illustrator, this is what I am looking to do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCwmEfCsPdw&t=328s Can any one point me in the right direction? Or are we limited to power duplicate in Affinity designer/photo? Any ideas/help will be appreciated! Thank you for your time. Dan.
  4. I build Tessellations using Affinity Design in normal mode (not Isometric). To do this, I create Shapes, adjust their size + arrange them to build a Pattern: So that the Shapes snap within a Pattern and so that the Pattern when duplicated, snaps within a Tessellation (as demonstrated in the 3 images below) Below I describe my workflow followed by questions looking to make my process more efficient. WORKFLOW Step #1 - Find Shape Dimensions for Pattern To find the dimensions of the Shapes within the Pattern, I: Create the Shapes, then I Adjust the constrained size + Rotate + Move the Shapes so they snap to each other (this provides the necessary Shape dimensions to fit within the Pattern) Step #2 - Find Shape Dimensions for Tessellation as well The dimensions of the Shapes must snap within the Tessellation too - so I: Duplicate the same Pattern (from step #1) as many times necessary so the duplicates fully surround all sides of the Original single Pattern, then I Adjust the constrained size of the Shapes so that all shapes snap to each other within both the Pattern + Tessellation (this provides the Shape dimensions within the Tessellation) Step #3- Erase the erroneous, extra Shapes that don't fit within both the Pattern & Tessellation Once the Shape dimensions are final (they snap within both the Pattern and the Tessellation), I erase the erroneous, duplicate Patterns, keeping only the Pattern with the correct Shape dimensions that snap within both the Pattern and Tessellation. Step #4- Merge the Patterns into images rather than shapes (so document 's size don't hinder its agility) Once the erroneous Patterns are deleted, I: Duplicate the Pattern one time Hide the Original Pattern Merge the Duplicated Pattern Step #5- Create the Tessellation Duplicate the Merged Pattern enough times so it fills the entire canvas, creating a non-heavy tessellation QUESTIONS for: Steps #1 and #2, is there a more efficient workflow to adjusting the constrained shape sizes, rotating and moving them so one can learn if they fit into both the *Pattern* and *Tessellation* at once? (rather than having to go through both steps). Ideally, I'd create the Shapes & fill with their corresponding image as usual - but then Adjust, Rotate and Move the Shapes within the Pattern and Tessellation so they snap to eachother in one step. Also, this more efficient workflow would allow me to skip Step #3 that would have multiple erroneous shape sizes [How] can I use the isometric panel for this? Step #3, is there a different format or method I can use so that the repeated, individual Shapes and Patterns don't reduce the document's agility? Otherwise, when making modifications the document's large size hinders its speed. Also, if I don't merge the patterns into images, when returning to the document for any additional modifications, I can avoid having to re-create the tessellation. Thank you so much for any feedback or guidance.

    Pattern Brush Packs

    Thought it was about time I added some of the brushes from a previous drawing completed in May ...Sorry it's taken so long! Extended Brush set to 120 Mixed Patterns Size restricted to initial Brush Size to 100px as not relevant to the patterning with these types of brushes. Made some changes to the post: 1. Added A4 sample sheet for reference [PDF] 2. Added new sample sheets and removed old visuals from the post 3. Added full set zip file to first comment Enjoy! New Format PB PATTERNS 01 Sample120.pdf Pattern Brush Set 1 Packs 1-12.zip Single Brush Packs (as original upload) Copied the links from rest of post to make things a bit easier PATTERNS-01 Pack -01.zip PATTERNS-01 Pack -02.zip PATTERNS-01 Pack -03.zip PATTERNS-01 Pack -04.zip PATTERNS-01 Pack -05.zip PATTERNS-01 Pack -06.zip Patterns-01-Packs 07-10.zip Patterns-01-Packs 11-12.zip
  6. I Have added a limited number of seamless (hopefully) pattern assets (30 in total) (import to asset Library) as a supplement to the Texture Paint Brushes: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/55202-texture-paint-brushes-group-1-4-120480/ and as a working asset library for creating vector patterns. (Found these really useful while working on the on-going Inktober artwork Conversions ) Usage 1. The patterns can be complex inside the rectangular containers but they can be broken apart for other use. (Like spreading a texture inside another object/masking/ pattern making) 3. Tiled patterns (They should snap together) 4. Re-colouring (select internal groups in layer panel to re-colour collectively) [not 100% success can be a bit of trial and error!] 4. As symbols should you choose to add to symbol panel Hope you find them useful! Updated versions (01 05 2019) TxP Ptn 01.zip TxP Pattern Assets 1.pdf
  7. The project I'm working on will need to use 'tiling patterns' for some of the graphics. Currently the only option for patterns in Affinity Designer is to use the Fill tool to import a Bitmap. This may be saved as a style. The bitmap will not and cannot be updated, and the size and tiling will scale relative to the object, rather than the document. Working with patterns this way is so terrible that it's definitely not fit for the task, so Affinity Designer is starting to really drag down the project. Does it seem likely we will see any sort of patterned area fill in the next six months, or should I abandon Affinity Designer for now and go for Illustrator?
  8. Good day guys, i want to know how to create pattern in boxers or T-shirts
  9. Hi all This is a new small sample set of brushes I have been working on for several months with base textures, seamless patterns with mixed vector/bitmap nozzles. It is a larger single set containing 30 raster brushes I have changed the numeric s slightly on the brush reference sheet (it's just a number!) Sample sheet is attached enjoy!

  10. Hello, I’ve searched through existing posts (see short list below) but it’s not clearly stated if those requests have been added to the development list or out of consideration. (They don’t appear to be reflected in the roadmap unless I’m missing a reference.) Is it possible to get clarification as to whether Affinity has plans to support: Ability to import Photoshop and Illustrator 'Preset' files / styles: Most Important:Gradients: .grd file extension Styles: .asl file extension Patterns: .pat file extensionIncluding preset pattern fills (related post by someone else is referenced below) Moderately important but could live without:Color Swatches: .aco file extension Custom Shapes: .csh file extension I have a huge library of the above (gradients, styles, and patterns in particular) that I'd rather not lose (or have to recreate) by switching to Affinity Designer. Somewhat-related forum posts: Import .ase and .aco files: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/1483-import-palette…-importing-ase-and-aco-files/ Import Photoshop and vector brushes: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/532-import-photoshop-and-vector-brushes/ Vector pattern fills, custom vector brushes, dotted lines: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/1913-vector-pattern-fills-custom-vector-brushes-dotted-lines/ (This one in particular, it’s stated that vector pattern fills are not yet in the roadmap; does that mean that it’s out of consideration, or just that it’s not coming in the near future?) Thank you for any clarification you can provide. Regards, --S
  11. It would be very useful to be able to create vector patterns and brushes. Having to use rasterized images to use as pattern fills or brushes is not really acceptable and certainly not what I expect from a vector art program. I would like to create a vector graphic and be able to use it as vector art on strokes and I'd like to create vector patterns and fill shapes with this vector pattern.
  12. Hello, I can't find it so I assume I am the first to request it but it would be nice to have an effect added to the Fx list "pattern overlay": which would work pretty much like a colour or gradient overlay. For the moment I am using the Fill tool set to "bitmap", and import a pattern I have made myself (they are either distressed texture patterns - seamless - that I create in photoshop) or halftone patterns. I am sure there would be plenty of uses (that's one of the tools I am using most in photoshop when I am doing mock-ups) The fill tool options are a bit short for me, as I can't tweak the scale precisely (with numbers in %) I would also add the possibility to change the guides colours (like the grids) but I am not sure it's a missing feature or if it's just me who can't find it Many thanks!
  13. Created in an awesome app called JWildfire, Colour edited in Affinity Photo to define the patterns. Comparison
  14. I'm very sad to see that bitmap fill is extended out of its boundaries - if i would like to do checker fill i have to move handles out of canvas to hide this effect, otherwise there is kind of cross or line made by wider bitmap fill than whats on the rest of canvas. I hope its clear from screenshots, anyway would be GREAT yet basic feature to be able to set dimensions by numbers. PLEASE!!! Radeon Pro 580 8192MB on macOS 10.13.6 It has also weird wavy top-edge: PS: i started with 2*2 px checker then i made it 20x20 but it looks like it still put one more pixel from the place of its origin in both directions...
  15. I think it´s a quite good idea to have patterns. For example for CD´s, business cards, envelops, external labels and calendars. And also for these patterns matching print options specific for them.
  16. Up to now I have been creating a vector pattern in a drawing area and then pasting, duplicating, moving, etc. to spread the pattern over a larger area. Is there a faster way to create such a small sized pattern over a large area? I have been using the Affinity Designer Pattern Template to try to do this, but it only exports the single pattern I created. However, the pattern is spread over the entire preview area. I am not sure if the Affinity Designer Pattern Template is actually part of AD or is simply created by an user.

  20. Hello there! I want to share with all this nice community the latest Frankentoon's Franken-Pack: Pattern Painter. Pattern Painter is a cool collection of raster/pixel brushes that can be used either on Designer or Photo... and even cooler, you can use 'em on Photo for iPad :) I've always liked the idea of painting with patterns, even with software that allows to use pattern fills. I don't know, but I love the experimental and 'crafty' feel that is the joy of brushing in seamless shapes on your canvas. You can combine them, change colors on the fly, layer 'em up for some cool effects... If you want to know more, click HERE to get more info... (I've created a super fancy and colorful info page for you guys :D ) Hope you all like this pack!
  21. Hello Am working on a logo and was wondering how to 1. Give a group of (text or shapes) a perspective like Netflix Logo. I have AF photo and AF designer - however I wasn't able to effectively use the perspective or mesh tool for the same. 2. Can one fill a shape with patterns ? Here's part of the logo - I've converted it into curves - wanting to fill it with patters - say like stars or something around the spine... Idea is to make it look like fancy movie glasses Thanks
  22. I would like to request a tiling pattern tool and also something akin to the blob brush, but with more control would be a very useful addition? Cheers!
  23. I like to post on top of a colored area transparent black and white patterns, for example dot fields or hatchings. I cannot find patterns and how to fix them on top of colors.
  24. Hey got a quick question: Is there a way to create custom swatches especially pattern swatches?
  25. One of my new Instagram friends, Lindsey Slutz, @east_coast_charm has just released a course at SkillShare called "Creating Patterns in Affinity Designer. To launch it, she's making it free to the first 25 who sign up. (As of this writing, there are 9 spots left.) If there's still room, the link will be in her bio... https://www.instagram.com/east_coast_charm/ The class is short and the steps are very clearly explained. I think it's a great introduction to Affinity Designer, whether or not you want to create patterns. :) I really wish I'd seen it before I tried teaching myself A.D. :rolleyes:
