  1. For anyone else wearing out their graphics tablet in October... Brush Sets: Inkers: Project Brush 19 'Inker' Patterns: Project Brush 19 'Pattern Toolkit' 01 Gargoyle 500 x500 mm 300 dpi Affinity Designer
  2. Textured Pencils Added a set of 30 Textured Pencil Raster Brushes to Resources Sample set as displayed Updated for Affinity 2 but retained version 1 brush set Affinity 01Affinity 01: Original Brush set (Sample sheet removed)Affinity 02Affinity 02: Updated version 2 set with adjustment to dynamics to include Distance and Interpolate (Sample sheet as below). Replaced Linear Paint 01 with better nozzles! These Brushes are a bit different from my usual offering. 1. They are small 2. Rely largely on setting the blend mode to Average (something I learnt from Sketchbook Pro!) 3. Resize as you wish 4. Updated to consider Affinity 02 Brush Dynamics 5. Included samples of Base Textures Sample Sheet Enjoy! Affinity 01 Project Brush - Textured Pencil.zip Affinity 02 PB 15 - Textured Pencils A2.zip Ink Sketch Brushes Added a new set to supplement these brushes from the Project Brush 13:Ink Painter Set (which is now complete)..a bit out of sync as I started them quite a while ago! A set of 35 Ink Sketching Raster Brushes to Resources Sample set as displayed 1. These are essentially the same as the Pencil Brushes but with adjustments to the brush dynamics and less texture..There are 2 other sets that supplement these in the InkPainter Project set (Ink & Linear) 2. Similar to brushes produced by Jake Parker for initial Inktober Project 2016 3. If you need textures/Patterns There is a set available Camouflage assets (here) ...which is also out of sync...and maybe in the wrong place!

  3. Hi! Just found out that some custom brushes are missign on the iPad version of both, Photo and Designer. For example, this is how a custom set looks in Affinity Photo on a Mac. Nothing wrong here: And this is how the same set looks in Affinity Photo V2 on the iPad (same happens to Designer): At the beginning I though this was only affecting dual brushes, but nope, it happens randomly without a clear pattern, at least for me. And, this is not only a visual thing, missing brushes aren't displayed correclty while painting, either they won't paint anything at all. I'm not sure if the developers are aware of this issue already, but I wanted to post it here for the record. Thanks, Enrique
  4. I was hoping that V2 would bring some of the features from Affinity Photo (e.g. links, layer states) over to Designer. As it stands, users are encouraged to use publisher for a Designer - Photo integration (or edit the file in the other program). To me it would be much more useful if I could use Affinity Photo through studiolink, the way Publisher does this. I mean, if I have paid for both Designer and Photo, it makes sense to me that I get both program's main persona at my fingertips in Designer. Again, the reason I am asking for this is so that I can setup my workspace in Publisher for publishing and presentation work, whereas I can use Designer for my actual Design work. For image manipulation I would of course use Photo. Both Publisher and Photo are in-line with this workflow, but Designer is dropping the ball here imo.

  7. 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:
  8. Inspired by this Photoshop-tutorial I found the following workflow for what I call „Pseudo Halftones“. Not really Halftones, but a nice raster effect, I think. Maybe someone likes it too. 1. At first I created a pattern for the halftone raster. It is only a radial gradient from opaque black in the center of a square document, to transparent black (0%) on the edge of the document. Then I duplicated the layer four times and placed each duplicate on the four corners of the document. Finally I exported the document (you find the result attached to this thread and also some line patterns). 2. Then I created a New Round Brush. I opened the panel for the Brush Settings and adjusted the brush „Size“ under „General“ and the „Size Jitter“ under „Dynamics“. Under „Texture“ I added my pattern as „Base Texture“. You can adjust its size with the „Scale“ slider, if necessary. The „Mode“ should be set to „Final“ (you find the resulting brushes as attachments to this thread). 3. I loaded an image into Photo. Then I clicked „Add Pixel Layer“ on the bottom right of the „Layers“ panel and filled the layer with white. Then I applied the blend mode "Colour Dodge" to the white layer. After that, I painted with my new brush on that white layer. The result is nearly the halftone effect we wanted. But we should finish with adjusting the „Brightness and Contrast“ (or „Levels“ or „Curves“, if you like), to get clearer and sharper dots. So I dragged the „Brightness“ slider to the left and the „Contrast“ to the right, to get more contrast. Check it out to find the values you like. This contrast adjustment will only work if the layer has a white background. That is why I filled it. Pseudo-Halftone-Dots. Vertical lines. Dots and diagonal lines in combination.

  10. I've recently created several vector only designs in Affinity Designer. When I go to export them as SVG instead of being vector svg files they are svgs that contain raster pngs embedded in them and hence don't scale properly. This is not what I want. 😢 Is there any way to tell affinity designer to export the vector design as only a vector svg not png embedded in svg? Are there features of the software that force the design to export embedded pngs, and if so is there a refence to which ones so they can be avoided and alternate methods employed? I've noticed specifically that outer shadow fx seems to trigger this, i'd really like to know which other features trigger this behavior so that i can make svg vector safe resizable designs. Anyone know a reference to this aspect of Affinity Designer? Many Thanks. ❤️
  11. The ability to bring in a raster image and trace into vector would be a good feature. This is something I often use in Illustrator and would love to see in Affinity, ideally with more control. While switching tools between personas is great, only being able to rasterize a vector and not the reverse is troublesome.
  12. Project Brush Camouflage Set 11 Added new Brush set based on the vectors of Camouflage I 30 New Raster Brushes First sample Set combining 4 brush sets [Leaves , Texture, Bark Grunge and Canopy] Samples as below and 30 brushes in .zip file Enjoy! Camouflage - Mixed Sample Set.zip
  13. Dopo l'acquisto di Affinity Photo e Designer versione 1.8, scoprii che entrami non prevedevano la vettorizzazione automatica delle foto a colori. Ora che esistono le versioni 1.10 sapete se è stata inserita questa possibilità di vettorizzare le foto? · Grazie ·
  14. Hiya folks! 🖖 I'm sure we're all dealing with the same stresses and frustrations brought on by the COVID-19 chaos (my country has been on full lockdown for a while now). It's important to stay busy to stop the cabin fever from kicking in, so I decided to create a little custom raster/pixel brush pack for Affinity apps - free for all! The brushes are not too complex, mimicking some traditional inking tools we all know and love, such as brush pens and fineliners. Perfect for those 'run-and-gun' illustrations where you just want to get to work and avoid the option-paralysis brought on by having to go through hundreds of custom brushes first. Included in the "Lockdown Liners" brush pack you'll find: 1 x HB Pencil (inspired by the Palomino Blackwing 602 pencil) 1 x Precision Eraser (inspired by the Tombow Mono eraser) 4 x Fineliners in Broad, Medium, Fine, and Ultra Fine (inspired by Pigma Micron technical pens) 1 x Brush Pen (inspired by the Tombow Fudenosuke Hard Tip brush pen) 1 x Gel Pen (inspired by the Sakura Gelly Roll) Fully compatible with Affinity Photo for desktop and iPad, and Designer's Pixel Persona for desktop and iPad. *Best used with a drawing tablet or iPad with Apple Pencil to take full advantage of the pressure sensitivity that the brushes offer. I'll likely make a few tweaks to the pack as I go along, but I'll be sure to update it on Gumroad when I do so that everyone who has already downloaded it can be notified. Hopefully you can create some cool work with the brushes to help pass the time while we're all stuck indoors - if you do, be sure to tag me on Instagram, http://www.instagram.com/christidutoit, I'd love to see what you make! Here's the download link to the brushes on Gumroad: http://www.gum.co/lockdownliners As mentioned, these brushes are totally free to download and use, just type $0 in the price tab and click "I Want This!". Stay safe out there! - Christi. ☠️

  16. Project Brush Set 08 Organics Used as brush set to supplement Camouflage III Project Updated the brush set to version 2 Should work much better now! Changes/improvements as below Version 2.0 1. Removed old versions redundant now.. 2. Made significant changes to the brush dynamics and nozzles. All nozzles are now vector based replacing previous raster versions (as much as possible) 3. There is a significant number of new nozzles for the brushes Which means they are not like original sets.. 4. Made use of the 1.7/1.8.2 brush engine in AD/AP using subBrushes. 5. The old brush set was appearing darker and less intense with 1.7/1.8 update...I have fixed that with this version! 6. Updated the Sample sheets to newer (latest) layout..Sub brushes are displayed in red. 7. Introduced a lot of new base textures 8. Organics Set 01 replaces the original Project Brush 08 set. There are 3 x 30 in the full project Archived the Older Brush set and updated Library information Raster Brushes ProjectBrush 08 - Organics Set 01 V2.zip
  17. This started off as a thumbnail and brush experiment for the 2 new brush sets associated with 'Ecosystem' but I have gone a bit 'over the top' for that!. Used Brush sets Substrate Painter | Vector Bristles and a collection of vector elements
  18. Ecosystem Second instalment of inked murals and follow up to 'Fallen' All Raster Drawing using Inktober Inker Brushes Full Size 3000mm x 800mm (A bit big!)..but hey! AD can cope! upload size (10%) 3543 x 944px
  19. I recently updated to Affinity Photo 1.9.1.979, from the Microsoft Store. I had no problems with the previous version, but this version has a strange problem: Whenever I perform an action such as a Merge Down on an effects layer, committing a Live Projection Layer, exporting a picture as a .jpeg, or similar actions involving rasterization, random pixels (often in thin rectangles) are rendered. The pixels appear to contain information from the previous history layer. For example, after making a picture darker and merging down the layer, there may appear pixels that are still as dark as the original layer. Or when making an edit involving a projection layer and then removing the layer, there may appear pixels that are transparent. Attached is an example. The original picture (with a disabled brightness adjustment), then darkened and merged with the brightness adjustment, contains a few pixels that are still the original brightness (which can be seen by the history brush). This happens with many other operations. This is a critical hinderance to my workflow, slowing me down by having to use trial-and-error and undo-redo until the pictures render properly. Any attention or support appreciated!
  20. Camouflage II Pattern Styles Created a new set of styles using some of the base textures built for the organic pattern Brushes Sets I and II using multi layer symbols to extend the effects 30 independent styles (set with maintain fill aspect ratio/wrap) File size is Larger than usual! ....Exported the .png but a t higher res (400dpi) Sample Sheet as below with .zip file for assets: Camouflage II Pattern Styles.zip
  21. 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.
  22. Here on display are some of my personal project illos. Choice of quotes is rather arbitrary and satisfies my personal tastes. Illos were made in AD & AP, combining vector and raster brushes with a help of Wacom tablet/pen. Series is a work in progress.
