  1. the title says it: 1. insert or place an image 2. set any blend mode for the layer of this image 3. update or replace the image in the resource manager 4. the formerly set blend mode is gone / set to normal (this happens to any layer where the resource was linked in)
  2. If I understand the Divide blend mode then the attached seems incorrect for two identical layers. That with the exception of black or 0 areas, everything should be x/x=1 or white. Both Difference and Subtract blend modes produce the expected black or 0 results. ColorPattern.afphoto
  3. Hi, the "difference" blend mode is great to spot any differneces between 2 layers. Identical pixel blend to pure black, any difference are rendered to non-black, which can be amplified by a levels adjustment. Unfortunately, this will only work when alpha is 1 (pure white). Otherwise, he blend formula will lead to non-zero results for color and below-one results for alpha, making this useless for spoting differences. My question: Is this by design? To be useful for spotting differneces, i would expect it to deliver RGB=0 and alpha=1 if both layers have equal RGB and alpha va

  6. Hello: I've been using Affinity photo off-and-on for about a year now and still can't figure out how to place the black/white swatches on the front working space. I have to open the swatches panel to get to the black/white swatches. I'd like to add them to the tools panel so I can easily access them when using masks, etc. I recall seeing a screen shot of an Affinity Photo user's setup that had the b/w swatches on the working space so I know it can be done! Help! Also lest I forget! Please consider a "dissolve" blend mode! I use that mode all the time (ps cc) to help with color
  7. When I set an object inside another as a mask and then set the inner object to Erase blend mode, the primary object shows a hairline outline. See attached example files and screenshot. I am on a Mac using Affinity Designer 1.7.1. This happens in any document. It does not show when exporting to bitmap formats and not in all cases exporting to vector formats (SVG, PDF, EPS) This is my first time using the Erase blend mode, so do not know if the bug previously existed. Thanks Erase bug.afdesign Erase bug.svg
  8. I'm using version 1.8.3.641 on a Win 10 PC. I've followed the tutorial steps 3 times using the downloaded photo and each time I do not get the changes in the Blend Options that are in the tutorial around 6:50 min. When I look at the screen on the tutorial and in my desktop's Affinity, they look the same except that the changes to the lips do not occur in my Affinity. Any idea what the problem could be? The tutorial is "Create Realistic Lipstick! Affinity Photo Tutorial" by Affinity Revolution. Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pbYVFmxO87U&t=456s I'm attaching the
  9. When importing PSD file into Affinity Designer - AD ignore some blend modes. My OS is Win10. Problem: Import PSD with Color Overlay effect with Lighten blend mode. In result AD ignore it, and make it Normal instead How to reproduce: Open PhotoShop, Create Layer, Add Color overlay Effect and Choose Blend mode to Soft Light, Vivid Light, Linear Light, Pin Light or Hard Mix. Open created file in AD. Screenshot attached: some blend modes ignored.
  10. I miss this Illustrator-function. Input: Overlapping shapes with different colors and blend modes. Output: Cut out shapes for each intersected part affected by colors below, color equivalent in normal blend mode. (No rasterizing, no pixels.)
  11. I have read many threads on this topic but cannot find what I am looking for. For example, in my architecture work I want to simply use layers in luminosity mode and brush in the luminance (brightness) of a window layer. This is quite common in PS and ON 1 Photo Raw. However, when using this work flow on Affinity 1.7.3 the luminance (brightness) of the layer I am blending in actually produces the color of the layer and not the brightness. So for example if the window I am blending in has some yellow color cast the yellow appears in the blended layer instead of just a brightness. This is true
  12. Affinity Photo tutorial on how to add a pattern to clothing. It demonstrates how to resize a pattern and show the folds of a pattern.
  13. I've brought this up a few times on the forums, but (and I'm getting desperate here) pleeeease add Dissolve to the Blend Modes list for layers and brushes - pretty pretty please! The tedious workarounds to achieve this effect simply aren't the same, and not nearly as effective. Dissolve is the easiest way to turn any, otherwise normal, brush into an amazing textural experience, and was one of the most used features for me in Photoshop. Dissolve played such a big role in my work that I've had to adapt my style completely after switching to Affinity, and I miss it dearly. I even took
  14. Why when I place a vector object over another object with the blending mode is set to erase I can still see the online of the object underneath? The edge of the circle is still visible when the rectangle is being used as a vector mask and set to erase. This happens also to the edge of photos as well when I select this type of blending mode. I thought it may be a screen artifact, but it prints as well.
  15. When I use layer blend modes, I can chose from a list of modes ... that is nothing new. Is there a description available, of what those modes actually do??? And I do not mean this mode lightens up etc. I want a more mathematical view like: For the sake of explaining lets assume we are talking about RGB colors, so rgba values. The function F_Mx is the function for blend mode Mx, it takes the pixels color values C_b(P)=(r_b, g_b, b_b, a_b) which is the color value of the pixel below the current layer and C_c(P)=(r_c, g_c, b_c, a_c) which is the color value of the pixel in the
  16. Hi there I find it quite useful using a recolour layer and a really bright colour (like lime) to highlight specific selected areas using the Blend Options interface. My thinking is if I use the recolour layer to show my selection is there a way to copy that across to say a Curves or Levels layer so I know exactly what I'm adjusting? Look forward to any reply. Many thanks Andrew Busst
  17. I have a shape (Stroke + Fill), with Outer shadow (fx). Add Gradient overlay (fx), and Colour overlay (fx), .and Inside Outline (fx). Now I set Opacity or Blend mode for Outline. To my great surprise will not start to shine Color overlay, or Gradient overlay, or Shape (his Stroke and Fill), but Shadow! I expected the Shape stack with fx to look as follows, but using the Outline will probably cut everything under it, except for the shadow. Is this a bug, or is it an expected feature? Thank you Edit: Current implementation (obje
  18. I've revived a few photos from my archive, using some texture images I've collected -- mostly from legitimate free sources with no copyright issues. These three are of an old trumpet I bought a few years ago. It's no longer playable (and I couldn't play it if it were) but I thought it was photogenic. These three pics have two texture layers, added one at a time, and I tried various combinations of blend mode and transparency till I found one I liked. I think the first one and the third one have something of a nineteen-fifties feel (I was there ) ... This one reminds me of an
  19. If I'm editing a mask with a brush, then I would expect the blend modes to work like they do when I'm normally painting a layer. Examples include: Brush with White Color and Overlay Blend Mode should help fill in white parts of the mask, without revealing/coloring parts that are already black. Brush with Black Color and Overlay Blend Mode should help fill in black parts of the mask, without hiding/coloring parts that are already white. Works best with a low flow For clarity, these do what I expect if I just paint with black and white on a normal pixel layer. But none of the ble
  20. After all these years I am really embarrassed asking this - but are there any keyboard shortcuts for scrolling through layer blend modes or shortcuts for choosing specific modes? I haven't managed to find any. But I can't believe that they aren't there somewhere ............
  21. I applied the Colour Dodge Blend Mode to a black logo (png) on top of a dark blue rectangle and it makes the logo a nice light blue colour. However, when I apply the exact same Colour Dodge Blend Mode to Black Text (also tried Rasterising it first), it is no longer visible at all. Why am I getting different results? Do Text Layers react differently to Blend Modes and if so, why does Rasterising it not make any difference?
  22. Herewith a little document containing mono and colour examples of blend modes in action. I find it useful to see relationships between different/similar blend modes. Also how weird transitions can happen! Monochrome blend is gradient black to white, from top to bottom above left to right. Colour blend is trickier, with green over red, with both fading differently to each edge (to black, white, grey and transparent). Top (blend) and bottom (base) layers are shown on the first page. Enjoy! Blend modes -- 2D visuals.pdf
  23. Hey everyone! I'm not sure if this is a bug or just a limitation of the .psd file type, but when using the layer blend mode "Transfer", opening exported .psd files from Affinity Designer (maybe Photo as well?) will not have the layer blend mode set to "Transfer", nor can I change any layer's mode to "Transfer". Is this layer blend mode specific to Affinity software? (I am using Designer 1.6.0.) If so, is there a way to approximate the effect of the "Transfer" layer mode? I am trying to export files for using in Procreate with the layers not being flattened.
  24. Hi, After recording a macro you can make blend mode modifications in the macro customizable by clicking the corresponding eye icon. However, unlike the opacity adjustment customization in macros, you can not assign a label to the blend mode dropdown that is displayed when the macro is played back. This is not particularly helpful, the macro dialog may have multiple blend mode drop-downs with no way to communicate their purpose or role. Please add a modifiable text label for blend mode customization in macros the same way as for opacity.
