  1. macOS Mojave 10.14.6 Affinity Designer 1.7.3 --- First, here's how these exported PNGs render in the wild: These photos are exported from the *same* artboard: In case the screenshot of the first export doesn't have you convinced, here's the artboard fill & stroke: (note the fill & stroke, top left) Yes, the slice export options are the exact same: (also notice how you can see in the slice preview that Color Horizontal is transparent but the avatar_color_why_no_transparent clearly has a white background) I feel like this should be stupid-simple. What am I missing? Also here's an example of these files out of preview/affinity designer so it's evident that one's transparent and one has a white background:
  2. Affected Version: 1.7.1 I tried to reproduce some photoshop styles I used to color smoke like fire. This actually works quite well. The issue here is that I cannot distinguish between the several styles I have created, as the previews in the styles panel is empty. Screenshot: There are actually 18 styles in the selected category, all selectable through a transparent square that hightlights blue when clicked.
  3. Hey guys, I'm trying to make a black to transparent fading gradient, I drew a rectangle shape on 1/3 height of the page and use the transparent tool to click on bottom of the shape and drag to the top straight, midpoint set the standard 50% but on top of the shape, it appear to have noticeable edge and not completely fade to transparent and blend in to the background image, can you guys let me know how to settle this? I try to set the midpoint to 55% because I want the black are to be a bit higher and then make a second midpoint and set it to 45% and the edge don't noticeable much but because there's 2 midpoints, the gradient looks like a 3 bar with black, dark gray and light gray shading. And how do i make sure tire's no banding problem with amazon KDP print? Please help! Gradient Test.afdesign
  4. hello i'm trying to design a logo for my scouts. We would like to print this logo on thirts and sweaters/hoodies. The problem i have is that the text needs to be transparent so it has the color of the tshirts. I looked it up and i came across the substract option but can't get it working. Is there somebody that can help me or explain it to me? I provided the document to make it a little clearer for you. (PS. Real noobie overhere) Grtz.

  5. Hi there, When I use the Linear gradient tool to create a new layer, choosing the first point colour as full opacity , black. The second point I set to 0% opacity. Logically speaking, this should result in a visual of dense black pixels, gradually 'fading' to transparent, but with Affinity Photo, it introduces gray pixels in the middle of gradient. This doesn't make any sense to me, and coming from Photoshop where this worked properly, I find it a bizarre way that its been implemented in AP. Am I doing something wrong? Please help. Thanks
  6. Hi all. I'm having trouble getting a transparent background on an exported PNG. I'm using AD on ipad. Here's the scenario: I've imported a .ai file of a speech bubble and want to export 'as-is' as a transparent PNG. When I export the file, I'm seeing the bubble as a square image with a grid in in the background (see screenshot - blue background) Here's what I've tried. Each time, I get this grid in the background: 1. Gone to file -> Canvas -> set 'Transparent Canvas' 2. Deselected all. Export persona -> selected top level slice (whole page) -> selected PNG -> exported 3. Pixel persona -> Selected all -> Export -> select PNG -> Area: 'Whole Document" 4. Pixel persona -> Selected all -> Export -> select PNG -> Area: 'Selection without background" I'm really confused. I would have thought that the image has transparency by default. Why is AD adding this grid background (which in my limited, novice's understanding normally represents transparency)?? What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance!
  7. This doesn't happen on normal export to PDF. This doesn't happen on export to x-1 or x-4. This only happens on exporting to x-3 PDF to the best of my testing ability When you have an image background and then overlay a transparent image, the overlapping pixels become slightly miscolored. Not enough to jump out, but enough that if sent to a professional printer, it will be visible on the page. I've attached a quick af.pub file and a screenshot taken from my PDF viewer (chrome) of this afpub file exported to X-3 PDF standard. To recreate 1) Create af.pub 2) Find a solid color image (doesn't need to be solid color, but easier to see this way) 3) Place solid color image on master page 4) In page mode, place an image that has transparency (PNG, etc.) over the background image. 5) Export to x-3:PDF standard, open and look at the overlayed image transparent pixels pdf_transparency_miscoloration_x3.zip
  8. I've been using AD for about a week now and I must say I love. I have a couple of tools and personalization options I still miss from Illustrator and I'm hoping to see them in Affinity soon. One of these is the option to choose the background color of a PNG file upon exporting. Setting a background in any color is fast and easy while creating the content, but exporting an image with a transparent background is impossible. Or at least I haven't found the way to do it.
  9. When two or more shapes are alligned (from anchor to anchor), and these shapes have no stroke, it results in a transparent edge instead of no edge. See Example. Each of the triangles here are perfectly alligned from point to point, which should leave no space between shapes. The stroke is set to no colour, and the weight set to none, so I would imagine that the 'fill' should take up 100% of each shape. However, it seems that the stroke (which shouldnt exist), stil takes up a fraction of the shape, and allows the background to show through ever so slightly. The obvious way to get around this is to slightly overlap each shape - as you can see, there are quite a lot in the above, so this would be impractical. Is there any obvious way to get around this? Apologies, this question has probably been asked before, but I was finding it dificult converting this question to a searchable term.
  10. I did ask you before and they ignore me. Look at picture. Adobe Photoshop CC there have change color I fixed dark mode on transparent background. How about Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo. I have been hurt my eyes while new document appear too bright too white.
  11. For some reason, we need icon/texture with transparent background, and this transparent background needs to be white instead of black or something else. You can check this article, this is the reason we need this: http://www.adriancourreges.com/blog/2017/05/09/beware-of-transparent-pixels/ Now, my workflow in Affinity Designer is, an icon, and a white transparent rectangle at back, center the icon with the rectangle, then export it to png using file->export. The way I test it, is using XnView MP to open the png, then right click the image viewer, check "use alpha channel". Then the alpha channel will be removed and show the original color. Problem is, after I export it, the background is black transparent, not white transparent. See screenshots. Screenshot 1 is a home button icon and a transparent rect. Screenshot 2 is the color setting of the transparent rect. Screenshot 3 is the view in XnView, with alpha channel removed. Then I tested with only a little bit of alpha, by moving the alpha slider a little to right, export it to png, and the alpha is correct white alpha, not black. But it's not the ideal result because it shows a little bit white instead of complete transparent. How to do white transparent background with Affinity?
  12. Hi, I am totally new to Affinity Designer and graphic design in general. I want to know how to make the outline of a text transparent to there will appear to be a space between the text an other objects. I tried adding an outline, converting it to a shape by Expand Stroke, and then using Subtract. It did not work because it's the fill that became transparent. Kindly see the attached sample. I had no luck searching the forums for alternative steps. Thanks for the help.
  13. Hi everyone, Just bought Affinity and love it. Sorry to ask what might be a dumb question but I searched and couldn't find a clear answer on any of the other forum threads. Is there currently an option to trim away transparent areas in Affinity? In Photoshop, for example there is an option under the Image menu for Trim... > Transparent Pixels. Is there anything similar in Affinity? Thanks for any help, and well done to Serif for an outstanding product. :)
  14. Hello. Tell me please, is it possible to export files drawn on the iPad in EPS format, if there are objects with different transparency in the file, so that these objects remain vector? I tried to export such a file, all objects become raster.
  15. Hi! I've got some issue with Patch Tool. When I'm using it, my photo in the place I choose to replace, becomes blurry. It looks so if I was changing the transparent settings to low, but that's not true. I have no idea what I could do with this problem. Have any one of you got issue like this one?
  16. Hello, I’ve just downloaded Affinity Publisher (Beta) and am enjoying my first attempts. It’s a lot friendlier than Adobe InDesign, less fiddly, and reminds me of my favourite advert making program, MultiAd Creator, which is little known outside of the newspaper industry and is sadly now obsolete. I appreciate the ability to choose from different colour spaces at the outset. One of the many features that made MultiAd Creator so easy to use was that you could place a logo or piece of clip art, and then use a magic wand similar to the one in Photoshop to detect areas of uniform colour (most typically a white background), and erase them - Hey presto, your graphic would no longer be a rectangle, it would have its own shape and let whatever was underneath it show right around the edges. Sometimes this is known as transparency, but it has nothing to do with blending or opacity. Q. I am wondering whether there is (or is going to be) a built-in way to create a clipping path / transparent background / alpha channel in a graphic after it has been placed? InDesign does this but badly - no-one wants to see a ragged edge of white around the graphic afterwards. When done well it really is a very, very useful tool. The ability to remove backgrounds on the fly saves the designer from having to prepare each graphic in photoshop beforehand.
  17. I want to remove the white from this image, I've adjusted the Levels so the whites are completely white & blacks are completely black. I've gone to the selection tab & tried the 'Select sample colour' but i can't find a way to make it work. I've spent the last 3 hours looking at youtube tutorials, FAQ's & forums yet i have no idea what i'm doing right or wrong, please help.
  18. I have a png with a transparent background that I’ve imported into Designer on my iPad Pro. Original dpi was 150. I need to upload it to an online vendor that only accepts 300 dpi files. (I know.) Changing the dpi in Designer only seems to work if I uncheck Embed Metadata in the Export screen — but when I do that and save as png, the resulting image has a white background. If I leave the setting checked, the background is transparent but the dpi remains listed as 150. Is it possible to change the dpi of the saved png to 300, but retain the transparency? edit: I’ve discovered that I can make this work if I first create a 300 dpi document and then use Place Image to add my image. I can then turn off embed metadata and retain transparency. Still not sure why I can’t start with an existing png, though.
  19. Hi I have problem with correct printing with transparent elements. On a page are embedded pdf logo and few embedded psd with transparency and shadow fx. Printing on PS color laser printer without "Clip Transparency" I got a rectangle (lighter/darker) around each object and no shadow effect! Sample attached - print1.png = pdf logo Then print with selected "Clip Transparency". Is better. Although still poorly you will see a rectangle around the object and no shadow effect! Sample attached - print2.png, print3.png and corresponding - screenshot.png I find that the best way is to export to pdf and print pdf, however can I print without boxes around objects and with visible shadow effect? WIN 10

    Good news for clipart designers

    I find a new free clipart site (ClipartMax) which focuses on transparent clipart images collection with png format. All png clipart pictures with transparent background are high quality, easy to use. Just to search and unlimited download for free. This is the first time I found this clip art resource site. I tried to search some clip art data inside, I am very happy, all the clip art is transparent and high quality. For example, i search "fish clipart" - https://www.clipartmax.com/so/fish-clipart/ For example, i search "flower clipart" - https://www.clipartmax.com/so/free-clip-art-flowers/
  21. Hi Folks, After some help again. I have a logo I am trying to export for me to use in a Wordpress site. I have created my document (1200 x 300px) with a transparent background selected. I created he logo (Basic white text) and then exported it as a Jpeg. When I then uploaded into Wordpress all i get is a white background colour. Any ideas or suggestions? Cheers Mark
  22. I am having the same issue as this old beta forum thread. I want to export in EPS but i can not get a transparent background to appear. Is there a way to export in vector format with a transparent bg in affinity?
  23. Hi, I have a logo that has some solid elements, but also some elements that have a 50% opacity. I've tried exporting as an eps in a number of different ways but every time I import the eps in to photoshop the semi transparent elements become a solid colour. Can anybody help, it's driving me insane! :-) Basically I need a semi transparent logo. Hope somebody can help me. Many thanks.
  24. hey there. i just got my hands on affinity designer and have allready a question i couldn't find an answer to. in affinity designer you can set up your document with page size and so on, fine. but if i choose, for example an A4 paper and set the background to transparent i get an A4-page that is transparent but surroundet by a black frame all over. if i drag an object on this "black frame" (don't know how to call it), it is no longer visible, and that's pretty disturbing. So is there a possibility to remove that frame so one has this grey and white blocks pattern all over the screen, and only a line to show my document size?? thanks in advance, a random dude
  25. Is it possible to toggle the contrast of the transparent checkered background? Currently I place a dark rectangle object behind the white icons. I expected a document setup property to set this background light or dark. This property should stored in the project file. Also a button in the toolbar to toggle it fast would be nice.
