  1. I can't pin down exactly what's triggering this. Maybe hardware acceleration related? The strokes stop rendering when reaching the previous bounds of the parent vector layer. Hiding and showing the layer resets it. 2022-06-24 00-52-31.mkv
  2. Hi, Is there a way to work with Affinity Designer so that I never get decimals in the Transform panel? I'm getting mixed results with using "Force Pixel Alignment" and "Move by Whole Pixel" and due to snapping/aligning, I sometimes still end up getting : X: 900px | Y:62,5px Of course this makes sense, if you align something in the middle, and the heights don't match, you do the divide by 2, and get a ,5 decimal... but it makes me always having to check the transform panel to make sure I don't have "badly" positioned elements. The reason I want this is for better export. I found that export works best if things are aligned on full pixel value. Maybe you can change the logic of the "Force Pixel Alignment" and/or "Move by Whole Pixel" to actually reflect this and do rounding of values whenever decimals are present. The explanations above are a bit all over the place, hopefully you understand the goal. If I were to go deeper into implementation, I would say this would make sense for "Move by Whole Pixel" with the rounding of the X / Y values. If user holds ALT / OPTION key pressed, then maybe allow decimal values, as an exception. Width and Height with decimals are maybe not that big of a deal, because the export slice can be set to a whole number, but the reference point (X/Y) is pretty important.
  3. Hi everyone; Not sure if posting in the right folder, but I searched for someone having the same trouble and I didn't find this error: Whenever I try to make a pixel selection with the lace tool (or any other tool) in Photo, just as quick as I finish selecting, the selection made displaces a bit to the top left corner: It also happens whenever I try to select it and then press comm+⬆︎+I for making the invert selection. This is very unconfortable to work with because I lose all the precision and effort taken in selecting carefully, and I usually have to set it back by hand. I tried this both in Affinity Photo for Mac and Publisher with the Photo Persona, and still having the same trouble. Note that I also tried unselecting autosnapping, move by whole pixels and force pixel alignment but still doesn't work. Anyone know what possibly I'm doing wrong or badly set? Also, If i keep repeating the invert selection, the selection area keeps moving upwards in a progressive scale: Thank you all in advance for taking the effort in reading this lines (EDIT: i'm currently using the latest OS in Mac, Monterrey 12.2.1)
  4. I'm still new to Affinity so I'm sure this has been asked and answered but I'm not sure what to search. I drew a circle using a brush, which created the image on a pixel layer. I would now like to change the color of this circle. The only place or way I've found to do this is to do a color overlay, which doesn't really change the color of the item. Is there a better way to do this? And what should I be searching for in the help to find the answer? Thank you, Wills
  5. You might want to use a pixel layer as mask layer, but still be able to edit this layer and see the impact of your edits live. This is easily possible: Start with at least a background layer and a second pixel layer intended for masking add the live procedural text filter with this formula A=R, R=1, G=1, B=1 (or download preset "grey to alpha" below) Clip this live filter to the pixel layer to be used for masking Clip "pixel mask layer to be used for marking" to the background layer where you want to use it. The procedural text filter will become invisible in the layer stack, but still working. Modify the "pixel mask" layer with any pixel tool you like: brush, dodge and burn, sharpen, any adjustment or any filter At least give a "heart" or "thanks" to my post. Bonus material: If you have a mask you want to transform into a pixel layer, you can simply use the procedural text filter "alpha to gray" (see attached file). Video Tutorial: The recording did not capture the live procedural text filter. please use the settings from the picture below: Have fun Timo alpha to gray.aftoolpresets grey to alpha.aftoolpresets
  6. Considering all of Serif's incredible attention to detail regarding the multitude of amazing features in both its desktop and mobile platform apps—with particular note to the amazing degree of feature control throughout the complexity within Affinity Designer for iPad —the one glaring gap in all of Affinity's applications ( soon to be six with Publisher for iPad ) has been in providing users with a tool to facilitate pixel-accurate positioning of objects on the canvas. The measurement readouts in the Transform Studio for iPad only display a 2 decimal point positions. Even though one can actually enter a 3- or 4 decimal digit figure and see a clear result, an object's EXACT positioning remains "in the dark" as far as the numerical display is currently able to show for those fields. Numerical positioning capability is certainly a boon in achieving the accurate positioning and movement of an object, but when faced with numerous objects that all require precise placement, continually entering numbers in a field can become exhausting and very time consuming. Adding a tool that allows for pixel-based X/Y MOVEMENT would be a HUGE improvement to all Affinity's apps—especially on the iPad. Adobe had a great one in their now-abandoned Photoshop PS Touch app—please see the screenshot below that illustrates the potential design and functionality for this badly-needed tool, and how Affinity could incorporate this feature into its Transform Studios. The screenshot illustrates two layers, one with lowered opacity for visual lineup, that have slightly different features on the horizon. I'm attempting to precisely align the pixels that are common to both and then mask a section out on the top layer to blend it into the layer below for integrating, compositing, and rasterzing them into a single photo. Selecting the circular four-arrowed tool would activate a temporary overlay of large arrow buttons, positioned at the outer corners of the screen, to allow for easily moving the selected layer or object ( the top layer in this example ) into it's pixel-matching position by rapidly tapping on them with a finger or Apple Pencil. This would eliminate the currently frustrating continuous back-and-forth trial-and result process for guessing what numerical entry will achieve that result to position it correctly...no more multitude of attempts using my finger or Apple Pencil to get it into the EXACT needed location. An added bonus would be including a two-finger action for temporarily bumping up the pixle increment using those directional buttons to allow moving an object with them in multiples of 10 pixels. Adding this critically essential would also offset having to redesign and widen Affinity's current iPad numerical fields to display a 4-decimal figure—though that would be a great improvement as well—and make accurate positioning so easy and convenient for both the Desktop and Mobile versions of ALL THREE Affinity applications: PHOTO, DESIGNER and PUBLISHER. And Affinity need not consider the importance for this tool based solely on "user consensus" as to what degree of need or popularity position this "please add this feature" occupies based on its number of requests. It's really a no-brainer, day-in day-out tool whose functionality almost certainly can and will be used and welcomed to speed up the completion of every project for every user throughout ALL of Affinity applications. This is particularly the case in Designer, where cartographers need to manage, handle and precisely position a plethora of objects within a single file.

  8. I have large images with pixel shapes (representing cells) and each cell type has a certain colour (6 in total, plus black background). I need to rapidly colour-test different colours to find the best combination for visibility. I have not been able to find a solution anywhere, as most such approaches are about defining a recognisable shape and then altering colours - this is about changing many 'cells' across a large image in one go. Thanks
  9. Dear all, I have an outdoor exposition coming up, for which 20 of my photos (bug portraits) will be printed on 1,3m x 1,3m boards (51x51 inch). Is there any option in Affinity Photo to upscale, to add pixels (as in: a higher ppi)? The photos are originally 6240 x 4160, but since the prints will be square, they will be cropped. Do I need something like Topaz Gigapixel, or is there a tool in Affinity Photo that can do something similar? Cheers!
  10. So I wanted to export this rasterized text like it looks in the image, exactly like it looks. That is, as I see it in the Affinity Designer viewport with no effects on. I have to mention that this text has been rescaled from 120 pixels to the current that the image has (about 2000). Is there a way to export it with a decent quality retention but looking the same? My app is in Spanish btw.
  11. Hello, Recent convert from Photoshop here, and I'm pretty happy with Affinity's products so far! Transition has been fairly easy, and lots of features to like. One problem I'm having, however, involves the Pixel Tool. I did a lot of my pixel work in Photoshop using their Pencil tool, with pen pressure controlling opacity. However, when I attempt the same thing with AP's Pixel Tool, pen pressure seems to be binary? Like 0-50% pressure = no mark made, 51-100% pressure = 100% opacity. Am I missing a setting somewhere? The brush tool seems to behave correctly to pen pressure, but I want the rough/aliased edges of the pixel tool, not smooth/antialiased edges that Paint Brush Tool produces. Also, bizarrely, the pixel tool's size seems to work fine with pen pressure. Just accumulation is on/off like this. Any suggestions? I've attached a screenshot of both the brush and pixel tools attempting the same stroke with a pressure pen (Huion Inspiroy H950P). Best, Dan
  12. This vector layer has been forced to turn off Anti-Aliasing. One of its curve layer has been rotated, before being rasterized. The rasterized layer doesn't retain its former shapes in pixel accuracy (or its shape displayed in Pixel view mode). *Edit: even without rotating the object, vector layers cannot keep its pixel-perfect shape after being resterized
  13. Hello, I am thinking on making a game in a pixel art style, could anyone help me with what I am doing, I searched in the program and the web on way to do this but I found nothing
  14. Locked pixel layer at the bottom of layer hierarchy is selectable by clicking or dragging. If it's not at the bottom, it's not selectable.
  15. Hi! I don´t know how to explain this here we go... I have a Google Pixel 3 phone and take RAW (DNG) pictures using Adobe Lightroom Mobile, then I export them as Original and open them in my Computer with Affinity Photo. The results processing the photo in Lightroom Mobile directly is way better than doing it in Affinity Photo, do not get me wrong, I am NOT saying Lightroom Mobile is better, I am saying that Affinity is not reading the image appropriately, I already tried adjusting "Assistant Manager" and actually improved a little bit after changing the image to "32 bit HDR" and deactivating "Tone Curve" The image looks even better if I open it with the Windows Photo Tool: and as you can see, I already tried with the last Beta version(1.9.2.1005) and got the same bad results Here you have the best example I could give you, look at the miniatures, one of those is a DNG that was processed directly in Adobe Lightroom Mobile and then exported and the second TIF file is just the same but exported in this format: If I open both in affinity then the DNG file looks like the left/Above image and the TIFF like the right/Below one I attached the original RAW file (1) and the other one that was processed and then exported as a DNG (2) if it helps Please let me know if I am breaking any rule, it was really hard building all this post and I have searched a lot in google and Affinity Photo Community but without success Regards, LRM_20210128_174302_(1).dng LRM_20210128_174302_(2).dng
  16. Would be nice if you could add integer only mode to the pixel unit. (not hiding decimal point by rounding. actual data should be integer) This also should be applied to objects that's resized or rotated. This is useful for who work on pixel based artwork. It can prevent unwanted change of size or blurry image without checking each object that's pain. Also an object could snapped to another object that has decimal numbers on position/size, this is annoying.
  17. Hi there, this is the first big project using APublisher as a former Serif PagePlus and AI user. For some reason, all "l" and some "." are pixeled as soon as I export them into PDF. See exampel. No change of font, export into curves does make a difference. I never had this issue nowhere before. Do you have an idee, what this may be? Other than that I'm very happy with the Affinity Suite.
  18. Hello, (Sorry if my english is not perfect, not my first language) When i'm digital painting, I often need to switch between the brush and the eraser very quickly while keeping the same brush style, size and opacity. It's really annoying to just want to erase a tiny mistake, switch to the eraser and realize your eraser brush is in a completely different style and having to change all its settings just for one click. With the pixel tool, you can just press Ctrl to quickly erase, it's so perfect, I wish it was the same on the paint brush. It's one of the most awesome feature in Krita, the "eraser mode" which does exactly that (keeps your current brush setting) when you press E, and you can kind of do it in Photoshop with the "Eraser" blending mode of the brush. This goes for the brush tool in the Pixel persona of Affinity Designer, but also for the brush tool in Affinity Photo. I would love to see this feature go in, it's a tiny change but it makes a huge difference in the painting workflow Feel free to tell me if there's another way to have the eraser keep your paint brush current setting, i'm new to the software ! Thanks for the awesome software and the great price ! Alexandre
  19. I made a series to curved shapes of increasing size that I would like to flatten into a layer so I can fill the spaces with different colors/gradients. I see lots of advice on converting raster to vector but not the other way around. Can Should I convert the curves to selections? I feel really lost here.
  20. Designer on iPad, recently updated: when I want to DUPLICATE a BRUSH from a list, the message "new brush added" appears, but no brush appears at the bottom of the list. In Affinity Photo duplication occurs, but in Designer NO
  21. Hi, I love Affinity Photo. There's only one feature that keeps me from switching completely and opening Photoshop anymore. I'm doing lots of Pixel Art for Games and in Photoshop, you can set the pixel aspect ratio to be other than square. Here you can see that a pixel is actually 2:1, 2 pixels wide and 1 pixel tall. This is the standard multicolor mode for many old computers like the C64, Plus/4 etc. It would be fantastic to have this on your feature list. I can't stand using Photoshop anymore. Help me. Cheers, Esshahn
  22. Hello, new user here. I'm very happy with the purchase, but there's a little thing I'd like to ask in order to be able to ditch exporting to Photoshop completely. I intend to use AD mostly to generate 2D artwork in multiple resolutions*, and it's really important to control the amount of antialiasing. Without that, there's always a lengthy "pixel cleanup" stage that follows the creation of any asset. While being able to fine tune the antialias intensity would be amazing, I'd be happy with a simple "turn off antialiasing" option for both the pixel preview and the "rasterise"option. I originally thought that's what the "View quality" option in the preferences would do, but it seems to have no effect in the image. Bug, maybe? Thanks! * These are intended to be used in "pixel perfect" graphics (no scaling and no fractional coordinates, thus no filtering and maximum sharpness).
  23. Maybe I am blind and I totally missed it somehow, but I'm not able to set the width of the stroke (of a rectangle for example) to 1px. Or is this not (yet, hopefully) implemented? Thanks in advance guys! :)
  24. In Affinity Photo, if I move the pixel, its edge will become smoothed out. (I always draw with brush with 85% hardness above) Regardless it is select all pixel in a layer then move; or select a portion of a layer with selection tool then move, the hardness of the pixel become very soft. Is this a feature? Or simply the pixel too low? lol
  25. Hi Support Sorry for the large video file - I haven't figured how to reduce it yet. Can you check the video to see what the problem is. Affinity Designer 2020-09-17 15-41-48.mp4 The problem I'm having is that layers go missing mysteriously if I embed a pixel layer. I was doing it fine when I started (you'll notice that there is no problem with the ships body that has a pixel layer embedded in the vector layer) on the file but this seemed to happen as I progressed. I don't remember having this problem before. Is this a known issue with the update? - I tried looking but the closest I saw was the application crashing when users started to use layers (which is not a problem I have).
