  1. Maybe I'm not the first but I like to share this, I was working on a document doing my regular data merge thing, when it occurred to me that it will be great to use the tool to create patterns fast and without too much manual labor, here is the file as well as some screenshots as how is done. hope you like it and please leave a feedback on what other uses did you find for a tool that wasn't meant to do the art you doing it with. patterns.afpub
  2. Hi! I made repeat pattern tiles in Affinity Photo, and want to make wallpaper out of them. Could anyone tell me how big I can resize these tiles, so I know how big I can make the pattern tiles in the wallpaper? The pattern tiles are: 3000 x 3000 pixels 300 dpi 5000 x 5000 pixels 600 dpi Thank you very much!

  4. Hi there! I love designing with repeating patterns. Now I found a good workflow to design and apply repeating patterns in AD. I recorded a tutorial that shows you how to design them, build a style library and apply patterns. They blend nicely with color fills using blend modes. The pattern and the color fill are in one shape, so no duplicates! --> https://vimeo.com/443692483 If you prefer the short explanation: I design vector patterns in a separate document using symbols to get the tiling right, export as bitmaps, use bitmap fills to build up a Style Library and apply those in d
  5. Hallo affinity team, I still have a question about the Brushes: so far I have been working in Illustrator, and use the program for design drawings of bags and textiles. It is very helpful that with per brush I was able to create different zipper variants and chains as brushes, which are then available as vectorbrush. Hence my question: how can I import them into Affinity design or create them there? I send you a screenshot of the panel I usually use to create them there.
  6. A Japanese mon (crest) which are traditionally one color, colorized and embellished with wagara (Japanese patterns).
  7. Is there a way to create patterns to use in Affinity Designer? I used to do this when I used Illustrator for work but can't find any way to do it in Designer. Does this exist? Thanks
  8. Why are images I made in photoshop with patterns I created not opening with the patterns intact in affinity photo? The pattern is NOT a photoshop pattern, but one I created. Screen shots of the images are included. Both are the same file. one opened in photoshop the other in Affinity Photo. I'm trying to recreate the patterns. Fill layer does not work as I only need a portion of the image filled and need the expand option when using the gradient/bitmap method, but this does not have the expand option.
  9. I often create repeating patterns which (among other things) require dragging a selection of motif from the top to the bottom of square in order to create the repeat. I'll select the portion to be copied and moved (just below a guide line), create a new layer (cmd+J), and drag this below my other guide at the bottom. But when I do this, the edge of the motif has a shadow, as though the selection didn't fully "grab" the motif. Feathering and anti-aliasing is turned off. This seems like a huge bug (unless I'm doing something wrong, but then that wouldn't be intuitive).
  10. As a surface pattern designer I have historically used Adobe photoshop to create stand-alone repeating patterns with or without backgrounds that are also designed to incorporate texture and/or pattern. The resulting designs were saved as "defined patterns" and applied to artboards of any size using the following steps: edit——define pattern—-ok Open new document e.g. 10,000x10,000px edit—-fill—-contents (select pattern option as opposed to foreground or background fill) ——select required pattern from a list—-ok While I am very happy at the switch to Affinity I am struggli
  11. Affinity Photo tutorial on how to add a pattern to clothing. It demonstrates how to resize a pattern and show the folds of a pattern.
  12. 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
  13. 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?
  14. 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 desi
  15. 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
  16. 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 si
  17. Good day guys, i want to know how to create pattern in boxers or T-shirts
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. Created in an awesome app called JWildfire, Colour edited in Affinity Photo to define the patterns. Comparison
  21. 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 t
  22. 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.
  23. 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.

  25. 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 obj
