  1. Hi There, how on earth do I pick colours from an existing gradient, without just using the eyedropper as close to the edges as possible and hoping i get the 'full' end stop colour, not just one of the in-between shades? Lets say I open a file provided by a client and an object has a gradient of blue to grey. I want to use the same blue and grey to create other objects. I can't use the eyedropper as I might not get the full blue or the full grey if I don't click right at the edge of an object fill. Is there an easy way to 'name all colours' or 'add all colors to swatches' that wil
  2. Similar to this: The idea is to add a setting panel for colors that allow to edit the color of gradients, and objects in general, simultaneously or singular Adding other options for the settings, as saturation or brightness Most important for SVG format files
  3. Hi, I often find myself wishing I could make a linear gradient fill be curved rather than, well, linear (ie. a straight line). Wouldn't it be cool if you could add a node or nodes to a path perpendicular to the gradient fill path with control handles which could be manipulated as when using the pen tool in standard pen mode to create bezier curvature to the shape of the gradient fill....... In case it's not clear what I mean, I have attached a quick mock up where: A is a linear gradient fill applied to a straight object to give a 3D effect of, say, a pipe B. is the same lin
  4. In an earlier version of Publisher I gave a (gradient) colour background to a picture frame and placed a partly transparent picture in the frame. (a .png portrait without background) The background than appeared as expected. I now try this again, but the background stays white. Where did I go wrong? (I took a frame I made earlier and it just worked - I could even change the colour etc - . But when I make the frame from scratch it does not)
  5. Please make presets for gradient tool like foreground to transparent , two color and so on...like in the industry standard photoediting program(don't think i have to mention the name). Gradient tool in affinity is good but with these presets it saves so much time for compositing artists. Hope affinity will listen to this..
  6. I like to proppose anadditional feature for Affinity Photo, which I was missing: appling stored gradient fills from the color swatches panel in the fx-panel dialog.
  7. I’m encountering this extra gradient line a lot. I believe it’s when an object with a gradient applied is scaled or transformed in any way. Then when I decide to tweak the gradient and choose the gradient tool -> this (attached) is what I see. Feels like the moment I do anything with an object with a gradient, this is added. 1) Is there an easy, quick, no-faff way to get rid of it, please? 2) Am I doing something when first applying the gradient that invites this? Put another way: can I apply a gradient and set something that prevents this? Thank you - all help appreciat
  8. Can anyone give me some links to videos on fading images to transparency? I found one a while ago which helped me out, but it seems to have disappeared. Does anyone have a link to it? I recall the image being manipulated was in an underground garage. My issue is, I can create a box and try to set up the gradient, but on the image I get clear lines where the gradient box starts and finishes. How do I get this smooth? And where do I place the box in the layers?
  9. Greetings Team So I was making a nice glow behind some text by creating a gradient in a circle and then making it oval by scaling it down on the vertical axis. It looks great in app but when I export it forces the gradient back to a round shape which looks odd. I understand PDF may not support distorted or oval gradients but then it should be rasterized properly before it exports. In app... in PDF (CMYK conversion so the colour is different)... Thanks for your review on this.
  10. Hi guys, First time I tried to use gradient for print and cannot figure out what's wrong. ;) Check the screenshots. On the display the gradient looks perfect. In the exported PDF it looks awful. I've tried circle with radial transparency 0-100% added, and also white circle with white to transparent gradient. Same result. Midpoint is at 40% and I even tried different transparency/color values for this midpoint but it's still the same. is there a simple way how to achieve this gradient for print? Thanks.
  11. Hi guys, I have created a color gradient in a layer fx (see image) - now I want to copy that gradient somehow or ideally make it a swatch/global gradient. But I don't see how. Thanks in advance, Stefan.
  12. Good Morning, I have been looking for a way to create a Gaussian blur gradient. That is to say slightly blurred on one end of an object and progressively becoming more blurred toward the other end of the object. Specifically a shadow of an object (pole) composted into a photo. I have been told that there is a way to accomplish this in PhotoShop using a channel selection and applying a gradient to the selection. Is this possible with Affinity Photo? If so how. Thank you.

  13. Is it possible to copy gradients in Affinity Designer? How would you do it? If I wanted a repeating gradient to occur, it would be very time-consuming to individually create the gradient for many different objects.
  14. Hi guys, It would be great if when using gradient colors, we could use the COLOR PICKER tool. For example, I have an object that has a gradient color. When I click on one of the handlers, to change one of the colors, if I use the color picker tool, the shape loses its gradient color and turns into the color chosen by the color picker, regardless of the fact that I first clicked on one of the gradient handlers. It would be great if when clicking on a gradient handler, and afterwards selecting the color picker tool and selecting a color, only the color of the gradient linked to the handler
  15. I feel it’s not possible in AD, but just to be sure, is there a way I can apply a gradient to the stroke width? I mean, I know I can apply a gradient to the length of a stroke, but can I do it also to the width, so that gradient would follow the path of the stroke? My first thought that it maybe could be done via layer effects, but I couldn’t figure it out.
  16. Dear people, How do I use the linear gradient tool, if I want to fill a shape from top to bottom? The gradient only goes from side to side and I can't adjust the settings so that it goes from top to bottom. Danke.
  17. Hi there, I have 3 branding colors (1 main accent, one near white and one near black). In my video editor I found an option to set a different color for the light and the dark tone independently. So I set 2 of my colors, set the saturation and the intensity each to 50% - voila, loved the result. Now I want to do the same to my photos for branding reasons. So I tried all the options I could find (including the colorize function with the 2 sepia presets) but didn't get really close. How can I do this in Affinity Photo? Thanky ou for your help, Andi PS: My exact colors
  18. In the Develop Persona in the Overlay area: 1. Click on the gradient tool icon. 2. Create a gradient by dragging from top to bottom. Result: Gradient appears as coming across from the right edge of the image. Re-tested and this time drew a gradient from the left edge into the image and the result was a gradient was created from top to bottom. Windows 10 Version 2004 OS Build 19041.450
  19. I don’t normally use HSL colours so this is a new area for me. In my attached image I have two rectangles, each with a horizontal linear gradient fill. The top rectangle gradient goes from RGB 0, 0, 0 on the left to RGB 255, 0, 0 on the right and that looks as I would expect (the colour at the middle point is RGB 128, 0, 0, as can be seen in the little square below it). However, the bottom rectangle gradient goes from HSL 0, 100, 50 on the left to HSL 360, 100, 50 on the right but I don’t get the colours in-between the two as I can see in the “H” slider of the Colour Chooser. I
  20. Windows 10 build 19603 Designer v edit: also present on beta Steps to reproduce: 1. Document created with multiple artboards. 2. Image applied to one single artboard. 3. Image selected, create mask. Works as expected. 4. Apply fill gradient to mask. Bug: Size of gradient mask applies to size of whole document. Expected behavior: Size of gradient mask should size according to parent image the mask is applied to. Images attached for evidence. Additional related bugs: 1. Click "Reverse Gradient" button in toolbar 2. Mask size changes to
  21. I could do this in Photoshop with the gradient tool, but I can't find a way to do it in AP. I want to have a photo in a full-page ad at the top of a page to gradually fade into the copy block below it. In Photoshop, I could apply a gradient affect that would melt into transparent space at its bottom edge (or any age, for that matter). It was great for doing collages. Anyone been able to do this in AP?
  22. Hello, I have this issue. Not properly visualized gradient Affinity (Publisher; Designer) Google Chrome visualization.svg
  23. Hello, As a dataviz designer I often create the base of my works with SVGs on the web, so I can program the visual elements to be based on the data, then to import them into a vector tool for other adjustments. I've noticed that Affinity Designer doesn't import any SVG linearGradient / radialGradient nor patterns, which I do often use, so for now I can't rely solely on Affinity Designer sadly enough. (I copy the SVG element from the "Elements" section from the devTools in Chrome) I've attached a document that shows the import of the link below. All the inner curves that have a gradie
  24. Hi Using Gradients, or shadow effects dramatically increases the exported SVG file size. Do anyone have any tips/tricks for how to use gradients in a way that does not affect the file size? This is important for use on webdesign etc. By example, a file was 4kb, without gradient. Introducing 1 gradient and 1 shadow effect resulted in a 60kb SVG file. Anders
