  1. Hi, I just placed a bunch of vector PDF files in Designer (and linked them in the resource manager). It appears that these layers all come in as raster images. Is there a way to link (pdf) files as vector? https://affinity.help/publisher/en-US.lproj/index.html?page=pages/Media/placeImages.html?title=Placing content The manual also states DPI settings for linked files, which is what I am also seeing as part of the rasterisation:
  2. I Hi New user just wetting my toes on Affinity Photo. I loaded some shots from for practice and discovered a number of what appeared to be hot pixels red, blue and white 6 in total. I did a test photo on a white background and only came up with one of each color in different positions to the original photo? After loaded the first photo into Photoshop with nil hot pixels and the test photo came up clear as well. Next, I loaded both photos into DXO and again came up with nil hot pixels. See attached, I would be very interested in your findings. Shrunk photos from photoshop. I have not found the facility in affinity to shrink for emails yet! Cheers Montychristo
  3. I recently started vectoring an object on my desktop (PC) and needed to export it to my ipad. I used google drive to drop the file on and then opened the file up on designer for ipad with Zero problems but when I completed the vector object and tried to export it back to the desktop it keeps exporting the objects as pixels even though I chose "editable" for all aspects of the file it still opens up on the desktop as pixels. Please Help! Thank you in Advance for any help!
  4. I've been using Affinity Photo more lately and there are a few things I'm still trying to figure out. One thing I use often in Photoshop is the crop to pixels feature, you just make a selection and click the crop tool, the crop tool then automatically snaps to the outer most pixels around the selection then you just apply the crop for a pixel-perfect alignment. I have tried this in Affinity Photo as well as manually cropping and it doesn't seem to be able to do this. In some cases it's easy enough to manually crop, but this is not ideal for anything with semi-opaque pixels or glowing effects where clipping may occur if it is not cropped accurately. Is there a way to do this in Affinity Photo?
  5. Hello everyone, From today i believe i have to start sharing few of our design works (actually i'm working alone but i do build a team from time to time depending on project size ) Most of our client/requesters are Church based and we really enjoy doing stuffs for them but what you will se here is more about Smarty Studio standing with other studio/teams together into what is to become Congolese Design Style. Well each country have it's own style of design but Congo doesn't have a proper thus most of Congolese designers simply clone/copy styles from everywhere. This is a beginning, please your inputs on each design palet/kit will be of great help and will help us improving better. Blessings !
  6. I'd like to configure AD to work with pixels throughout, not points. Even if a document's unit type is pixels, it seems that points continue to be the only units for some things. For example, I can't figure out how to set the stroke width in pixels. I can't even figure out how to change the dimensions of the overage image. (It's locked in the document setup.) I suspect that it's very, very easy, but it's not readily apparent to me. In an ideal world, and I'd to set the document units to pixels and never see 'pt' again while I'm working on that document. I'm confident that I'm missing something. Advice? Thanks, David.
  7. Hi, I just started using Affinity Designer and I found one thing that significantly reduces my productivity (comparing to Inkscape). It is related to export of the vector image into multiple resolutions. On Android it is very common that one vector image is exported into multiple resolutions. Eg. launcher icon is exported into <project home>res/drawable-mdpi/ic_launcher.png with resolution 48x48px <project home>res/drawable-hdpi/ic_launcher.png with resolution 72x72px <project home>res/drawable-xhdpi/ic_launcher.png with resolution 96x96px ... Using Inkscape I made script exporting single drawing into multiple files. Is something similar possible with Designer? Thanks Tom
  8. Is this possible with procedural textures code? Say the procedure is currently operating on pixel (1,2) but I want to know the red values of the pixels at (1,1) ánd (1,3) - how do I get that data? Is there any sort of array structure I can use to store and index a lot of different values? Can I directly access the pixel data of the image as an array? Also is there a way of shifting the entire image or perhaps the current row/column by n pixels procedurally (like "affine" but in code)? If not then please consider this a feature request.
  9. Hi, I have a problem. I'm working with a Macbook Pro, Retina, 13 '' , at this time my monitor is on 1440 * 900 Pixels. In Affinity Photo in 100% should 1 Pixel be 1 Pixel. But Affinity Photo shows more than 2700 * 1200 which is more than the maximum capacity of the 13'' Retina (which has maximum 1680 * 1050 Pixel. It is a problem if i prepare photos for Websites, because in Safari the pics are normal size, in Affinity photos, due to the big resolution, the photos are half size of what they should be (View 100% Pics with 72 dpi) Any help? Mike
  10. Hi, I'm having a problem similar to the one described in the thread here. I want to export my line art which is a vector (see screenshot ‘Before import’) from Affinity Designer to Affinity Photo in order to colour. I export in a PNG format, import into Affinity Photo, zoom in and that's when I notice the lines look really jagged (see screenshot ‘After export with colour’). I understand that the vector gets turned into pixels during export, but I want to make the lines look smoother. Before using Affinity Designer and Photo, I was working with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. My workflow back then was to export the vector from Illustrator as a PNG 'without background' to Photoshop. In Affinity Designer I have tried different PNG preset settings (see screenshot ‘Export settings’) including PNG-24 Bilinear, Bicubic, Lanczos 3 (separable), Lanczos 3 (non-separable) all ‘without background’ selected. But all resulted in the same jagged line. I tried the solutions mentioned in the thread above. However when I click ‘Force pixel alignment’ the quality in Affinity Photo doesn’t seem to change. Would someone on the support team know if I need to do something different in Affinity Designer so that when I import the vector in Affinity Photo there’s not a noticeable difference?
  11. In "Grid and Axis manager" the size of grid spacing measured in pixels. This is right for square grid, but has no sense for any other type of grid. Right now other grid types is defined by diagonal spacing in rotated pixels. The only reasonable way for artists measure non-square grid in pixels is to define some height or width of the grid in real non-rotated pixels, but not actual side of grid. To understand it better, please, take a look on my example, with typical for pixel artists 2:1 isometric grid.
  12. Hey guys, I hope I haven't missed something in the UI but basically I'm after a "lock transparency" feature that works the same way as in PS. It's very handy for blurring things that you don't want the edges to shrink/grow. It also has the secondary benefit of being able to paint inside already painted pixels without going outside the bounds. (I know this can be done by masking, but locking transparency may be the workflow of many already and means you don't have to create an extra layer to mask with).
  13. I drew the design in designer as vector. Then added a few pixel layers so I could "paint" in some texture. Grouped all the vectors and then did a selection from layer. Invert selection. Went to each of my pixel layers and hit delete to get rid of the overspray. But no matter what I try - editing in photo (from file menu), using the eraser brush (both programs), or hitting delete, I can't get rid of these weird pixels in the background. So I saved as PSD and took it into another program and that program does not show these pixels! Are they really there or not? I can't print this as it is way to big for a home printer. And if they are there, how the bleep do I get rid of them? If they aren't really there, then why am I seeing them? I need to be in Designer and add text to finish off the design. I guess I could finish it and then export as PSD again and take into another program and resave it out from there as the PNG that I need for final submission. Driving myself nuts today with this. BTW I love how I can go back and forth between Designer and Photo with the file menu. That was very slick. Sig
  14. Hi there! Why after export everything becomes "pixel-like" ? I've attached 2 PNGs. These are parts of the same project - one exported and "screenshot'ed" and another just "screenshot'ed" from AD. Before export everything looks sharp (icons at the bottom) and soft (the wave under logo). Why after export everything goes wrong? The images I've attached are both PNGs, both are screenshots, both have the same DPI, dimentions etc. ? Is it possible to export sharp images, or it has to be always pixel-like and if so, why? best regards Cezary Kaczmarek
  15. Hello everyone, I have created several symbols in my AD document so I can test different color schemes in UI mockups. However I noticed that when I drag them into the canvas/artboard they do not snap to the pixels grid, becoming very fuzzy. Only if I release them and then start dragging again they will then start to snap to objects and moving pixel by pixel. It would be cool if they snapped to the pixels grid as soon as they are dragged onto the canvas so I can make quick drag and drop without having to realign them later. The three pixel alignment toggles at the top bar are on.
  16. What kind of magic would be involved to get the transparency tool to work on pixel based elements/layers?? Possible, no/yes?
  17. In Affine more often than not I want to offset a layer with a value in pixels rather than percent. This is not possible at the moment.
  18. I started by using Designer to build the vector shapes of the hat, and filled the shapes with gradients. In Pixel persona I used texturizing brushes (from Frankentoon) for tinting and shading. Some additional lines, smooting and adding noise was done in AP as well as lighting. The seamless integration between the two programs makes me just love them...
  19. I'm making my letter on Twitter and Facebook "open" because I'd really like to see this addressed. I believe the issue at hand is also more relevant to a "bug", since the correct term is PPI and not DPI. You've responded to this issue in the forums, but I'm considering this topic an error that I feel many users would like corrected. Please consider making this change. Thank you. "Respectfully, I believe ignoring the significant difference between PPI and DPI is a huge mistake, and an irresponsible choice for a company that does what yours does. I understand you feel this is addressed. However, if the vibe I'm getting is correct, then you feel that so many people misuse the term DPI, it's not worth the effort to address questions and concerns if you change it. I think that's lazy. It seems like a couple lines in an FAQ that you could link to would take care of it. As far as professional work and the factor these properties have on the final outcome of your project, I think these differences are way too significant to ignore. If I create a document at 300 PPI, and then print it at 300 DPI and 1200 DPI, the difference is immediately obvious. With the exact same pixel data, the document printed at 1200 DPI is significantly higher quality. If I create a document at 1200 PPI, with 4 times the pixel data, the quality difference between a 300 DPI and 1200 DPI print is also immediately apparent. Again, the 1200 DPI print is far higher in quality, contrast, clarity of detail, color accuracy, and intensity. However, if I look at two images printed at 1200 DPI, one from a 300 PPI file and one from a 1200 PPI file, then the difference is almost completely indiscernible. This is also true printed at 300 DPI. In spite of having 4 times the pixel data in the same amount of space, the difference between the two printed images is almost impossible to discern. However, two images printed at a different DPI from the exact same digital file are *easily* distinguishable from each other. I'm an artist and designer, and I don't personally deal with printing images very often. That said, after 8 years doing this stuff, the difference between DPI and PPI has always been simple and clear, and I don't think there's a legitimate reason to use them interchangeably. Especially given the impact they have on the final outcome is weighted so differently. I've waited a long time for you guys to come to Windows so I could be done with Adobe, and seeing DPI every day instead of PPI won't change that. I just think the responsible thing to do is set an example, use the correct term, and help clarify that there is a difference between the terms. From what I've seen in the forums, a lot of your users also understand the difference, and it also frustrates them. It's a small change, but it could have a big, positive impact. The users frustrated by it no longer have to be frustrated, and all the people that don't understand the difference can start to. Please consider this. Thank you for your time."
  20. Hello everyone, I am new here and I heard quite a lot about Affinity Designer. I am thinking of getting a Mac mainly for that program. I just want to become more familiar with how the layers work as there are only two things right now I'm a little confused about. 1. From the different video tutorials I've watched, the structure of the layers appear differently for each video. There are two different structures. Here, each layer can be expanded and show the paths within the layer (which I'm use to.) But then here, when the man creates a new document, each path is it's own layer. So how does this work? How can there be two different structures? 2. I know this bends the rules of vector designing, but I don't always draw in closed paths. As a cartoon character designer, I prefer to draw more freely. So my question is, seeing how there is a pixel persona and the option to clip layers, is there a way to use the bucket tool to fill in overlapping paths done with vectors (fingers crossed)?
  21. Hello, maybe I'm just doing something wrong? I have my Affinity document set up to use Pixels as units. The drawing is 580px wide exactly. I copy everything and paste it in photoshop as curves, yet it's pasted at 154px (100%). If I scale the image to make it 580px, there is some white , jagged-fraying on the edges of the curves and it looks like crap. What am I doing wrong? Why aren't the programs 1 to 1 with each other? Thanks
  22. Hello, I am trying to open a PDF as currently cropped and saved as a raster directly through Photo or Designer, but it doesn't seem to provide that option with the open dialog options, am I missing something? Thank you
  23. Hi Working with the sampling tool is great right now, although I think it would be useful if we could sample the average of multiple pixels. What do you think? Best regards Bauke
  24. Hi Folks and a very Merry Xmas to you all, I'm after some help again for a change. I have a project I have been working on and I now need to submit it to a specific website. Here is the issue... The project was created with the original document being set up as A4 size (Not sure why I picked this size but I did), I have now found out that my design needs to be submitted firstly in .jpeg format but also I am restricted to submitted it in the following dimensions... Width - 900px Height - 500px. I have tried simply set up a new project with those dimensions and then just drag my project into it and select my whole design and re-size it using the hold down shift and grab the top corner method but this totally throws my design out. The text won't re-size and some of the brushstrokes are still way to big. Is there are easier way? I am not familiar at all with the export persona but was wondering if there was a way I could use that? Any ideas folks? Mark
  25. Hi there, Is it possible to disable font aliasing so that I can use Pixel fonts? Pixel Fonts as in Any help would be great :-)
