  1. I often do forget and also have a hard time to find again resources that others or I have contributed over time here in the forum. In former times I've often oriented on MEB's Affinity resources page, which sadly nowadays isn't up to date any longer (probably it's too much work and too time consuming to keep that up to date). - Here are some links to my own resources section contributions, so I have and keep myself sort of an overview for these.

  2. So I was searching around for any and every video on YouTube to give me a better understanding of how to use the pen/node tool. I stumbled across a video on YT: "AFFINITY DESIGNER CURVES FROM SINGLE STROKE. This tutorial helped me solve one issue (finding the easiest way to trace an image with a lot of curvy lines BUT with each curve flowing smoothly together from one to the next). I had created a logo (i can't show the whole logo) but as you can see some of the curves i created originally APPEARED smooth when i zoomed in close but some noticeable errors when i zoomed out/away from it. Once I zoomed out the logo had these subtle curves that made the logo look like it was starting to form corners. As I followed the tutorial, I got to where I was only using the SMART MODE tool, with these options selected: - ALIGN TO NODES OF SELECTED CURVES - SNAP TO GEOMETRY OF SELECTED CURVES - ALIGN HANDLE POSITIONS USING SNAPPING OPTIONS - MOVE BY WHOLE PIXELS - SNAPPING while I was working through, I was going by what I would always hear from the pros and amateurs "move the node handles around until you get as close as you can to the images/shapes. so that's what I did! Still wasn't perfect though. A-HA!!! THERES A PATTERN ("not sure if I'm just late to the party lol") Once you put your first node, you get the CURVE option after putting the second node which is your first line. You then go and make that line fit as perfect to the curve as you can which is the easy part. Then comes the hard part as soon as you add a 3rd node and however many more you want, trying to make that second curve fit PERFECTLY with the first curve usually doesn't match the way you want it to because at the same time you're also trying to make it fit with the 4th node. It then becomes this tug of war between the nodes LOL. node A. node B. = line/curve a-b node B. node C. = line/curve b-c node C. node D. = line/curve c-d node D. node E. = line/curve d-e **USING THE SHIFT KEY EVERYTIME (USUALLY)** **USING THE SHIFT KEY EVERYTIME (USUALLY)** **USING THE SHIFT KEY EVERYTIME (USUALLY)** Once you have the first curve (line/curve a-b) set to your liking , before adjusting the second curve (line/curve b-c) YOU WANT TO SELECT THE NODE (node C.) AND USE THE HANDLES ON IT TO START BUILDING THE END OF THE SECOND CURVE (line/curve b-c)...…..THENNNNNNN...…GO BACK TO THE PREVIOUS NODE (node B.) AND ADJUST THAT ONE TO MAKE THE SECOND CURVE (line/curve b-c) FIT and FLOW SMOOTHLY WITH THE FIRST CURVE (line/curve a-b). so therefore once you move onto the third curve (line/curve c-d) start by adjusting the handles of node D. FIRST then jump back to ex. node A. node B. node C. node D. node E. etc. line/curve a-b, line/curve b-c, line/curve c-d, line/curve d-e after the curve between node A. & node B. has been made (line/curve a-b), jump to node C. and using the handles to adjust the curve (line/curve b-c) to your liking THEN start adjusting the handles on node B. creating line/curve b-c which flows perfectly with the previous curve line/curve a-b AFD - nodes.mp4 HOPEFULLY I HELPED SOMEONE!
  3. Hello Peoples ! Just want to know if it is possible to do a content aware crop or/and content aware fill with Affinity. if No ! did someone achieve something similar using one of the available tools ?

  4. I have a client who I have done two shoots for of the same subject, an updated renovation project for an art museum. They are asking me to take the new photos and align them to perfectly match the perspective and angle of the old photos I took. I am not sure how to begin this, my intuition tells me the perspective tool, but if its a 3 point perspective interior shot, would that actually work? The attached shots are the first pair that I am working on, but I think also the most difficult.

  6. Hello, I did a dispersal effect with butterflies and it worked (lucky guess). I wanted to do the same with triangular figures made by myself, then exported on PNG files before being integrated as a picture brush. This time it doesn't work like with butterflies : I have a transparent square around my brush that prevents me from making the dispersion effect on the white mask (no problem for the black mask). I notice when I compare the butterfly's brush and the triangles' one a difference in "brush tip", the image is not displayed in the same way, yet I don't know how I did the first time to get my butterfly brush correctly. Do you know how to correctly set up the "brush tip" to make the transparency square of the brush disappear ? Pictures : Menu with the brush tip that causes the square of transparency : "Brush tip" image of the butterfly (without the transparency square). A test image to show you the difference between the butterfly brush and the triangle brush when I do the dispersion effect on two squares of different colours :

  10. Hi Everyone! Today I published first episode of 1-minute graphic tips series called "Minutnik graficzny" (graphic stopwatch) #1 How to set the contrast of a photo: I decided to make it in polish, because there is a lot of english content already, however if someone non-polish-speaking would like to check it, there are english subtitles. I believe there are some polish people on this forum, so I hope to get some feedback. I'm going to publish here updates, especially for episodes connected with Affinity sofware. Lets affinitize Poland!

  14. Hi there I need to remove the awful orange date/time stamps from 50+ photos in Affinity Photo and have no idea how to do it. Before I offshore this task, I thought I'd ask the community. I'm kind of ashamed to be asking, but I'm under a major time crunch. I'm an amateur (business owner) and have managed to avoid the whole 'photoshop' thing this whole time. I've always been a vector person (Fireworks, Illustrator) and have only been using Affinity Designer thus far (which I'm madly in-love with BTW). I haven't dabbled with Affinity Photo yet... Normally I spend the time learning such things...but I'm under pressure and kinda hoping someone will say....."oh yes, it's easy...use this tool, click here, click there..." I'm sure it's easy, but I have no frame of reference - never having used photoshop or messed with the raster thing. Any help is much appreciated!!! J
  15. Hi, there. 1. Is there any way to export all layers as PDF ? 2. Or, any shortcut key to export file to PDF ? thanks
