  1. Hello. Can you guys tell me why those vector brush lines are jagged? No matter what document size, DPI and etc. the problem is still the same. I've also tried to change GPU, open it on different computers and monitors... When zooming in vector lines looks better though... And also while opening on another computer project colors messed up for a while and then fixed itself by opening a project for like a third time or something like that. Am I missing something?
  2. Hi! I've noticed quite an annoying bug when selecting and moving raster artwork within Affinity Designer's Pixel Persona. I've noticed this same issue in Affinity Photo, as well as the latest beta versions of Designer and Photo, and I have no clue why it happens. When drawing with something like the pixel brush or any brush that has a hard edge (with little to no anti-aliasing), the artwork blurs when being moved, but only when selected with a selection marquee tool, such as the lasso tool, first - see attached screen recording. This leaves a very visible difference between the selected and moved and unmoved artwork, and is even visible at 100%, which is obviously a big no-no for client work. Not totally unrelated, the selection path also seems excessively jagged on screen in comparison to something like Photoshop. I often use the selection tool when colouring my work, but the edge is noticeably jagged, even when zoomed out to 100% as well. I initially thought this may just be the pixel preview, but the jagged edge is very present - see attached screen shot, and it's also very present in the screen recording video too while making the selection path. As a final side note, a Wand Selection tool in Designer's Pixel Persona would be SOOOO helpful. Anyway, I'm not sure if these are bugs, but any advice or workaround for these things will be greatly appreciated! Screen Recording 2019-05-10 at 09.03.56.mov
  3. I'm having this recurring issue, where if I clip something to a shape/curve at an angle the original shape/curve fill bleeds into the edge, which is particularly obvious when clipping a light color to a dark color as shown here: Can anybody help? Much appreciated clipping mask error.afdesign
  4. Dear Serif. I purchased A Photo last night and was really put off by what I believe to be sub-par selection tools. I tried trimming an image with the polygonal selection tool, but the results are very rough and ugly, even with anti aliasing ticked. I will post images soon. Are you aware of this? Will it be fixed soon. It's not acceptable and actually not ready for commercial use in my opinion.
  5. After developing into photo persona, all the smooth edges go jagged. When I click on the 'un sharp' mask filter the jagged edges smooth out and altering the sliders doesn't affect the edges at all. When I click 'apply' and the application guide slides across then disappears, the jagged edges are still there. The 'un sharp' mask filter has no effect. This has only happened since the latest update. I have just switched the photo back into develop and the jagged edges smoothed out. Then I put it back into the photo persona without doing anything else to it and the jagged edges appeared again. I have just tried several raw photographs in the Develop Persona. Everything was fine all edges, straight and curved were smooth. When I put them into the Photo Persona, all the edges went jagged. Just by switching them from Develop to Photo, all the smooth edges went to jagged.
  6. So I've imported a photoshop brush set into affinity photo but they don't act the way they do in photoshop. Two separate problems. 1) the light to dark as controlled by pressure in the same stroke seems very different. 2) the edges are jagged as hell in affinity photo. I've fiddled around with settings a bit and it seems that if I uncheck wet edges and set accumulation to pressure I can get a similar light to dark stroke. It still isn't as varied, but that could be operator error. However, nothing I've tried gives the smooth edge that it had in photoshop. I've attached a screenshot from a video (the guy who made these demoed them in photoshop) and then a screenshot of the same brush in affinity photo. I do not have access to photoshop. I'm only at 75% zoom in affinity--so it's not a matter of zooming in too far to cause the edge pixilation. Um, other than that I'm on a mac. OSX Maverick. If any other info is useful let me know. Thoughts?

    Odd artefacts on standard ellipse

    I've been using v1.6 in beta for a long time, but I'm seeing something new having recently upgraded to High Sierra. These are two standard ellipses, around 120px in diameter. Depending on the view magnification, I see odd artefacts and jagged edges. I know that Expand Stroke is still problematic, but these are not expanded. It makes working a little bit odd and scary. I'm using Metal. And this is based on a wipe and clean install of High Sierra, so there should be no issue with macOS.
  8. Hi. Is there any timescale yet for when the jagged brush stroke issue will be fixed for Wacom cintiq companion users? I first reported this when the beta build was out and I just tried the latest wacom drivers with latest Affinity photo to find the problem still persists. This is not slight wobble from an unsteady hand it is the jagged pixelated jumpy brush stroke that only occurs in affinity photo and photoshop elements for me. All other software works fine with the cintiq companion. Without some kind of brush stabilisation the software is unusable to me as a photoshop replacement for painting and inking. Thanks. previous posts - https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/27924-disappointing-experiences-with-brush-tool/ https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/27428-jagged-brush/ top affinity, bottom photoshop cc. I reduced spacing as much as possible and reduced hardness. Also when my cursor hovers over an area the strokes appear to vibrate almost like marching ants, hard on the eyes.
  9. Hi there I just got Affinity Photo after a bad experience with Adobe. I don't use it for Professional photo editing stuff, just the basics, (which is to say I have no idea how to use 90% of the features in this program) and so far I'm having an issue with resizing images. I know you can't resize something to be bigger without distortion, usually. But shrinking? I had to resize an image earlier and the end result was jagged and fuzzy, the quality suffered. I looked in the help files to see which resampling mode to use and was using bilinear. I even tried to crop to a specific constrained size and the end result was still really bad. Is there a trick to this? When I took the same source images into another app and shrank them, they turned out fine. I can upload the images (before / after) if desired.
  10. Hello there, I've been using the Affinity products for a couple of days now and I'm really amazed by their capabilities. However, there seem to be a few disruptive bugs regarding the brush dynamics, both in Photo and Designer. (Note: I decided to name the bugs for future reference) "Prokaryote bug": When using the velocity control on a paint/pixel brush (Photo and Designer), there always appear big blobs at the beginning of each stroke followed by a much thinner tail, no matter how fast or slow I’m drawing. This bug has been reported here and there almost 2 (!) years ago and, yet, remains unfixed. Also, in the brush dynamics window (almost) every slider is called a “jitter”. The word “jitter” is a bit confusing as it implies that the brush is modified randomly over time while, at the same time, corresponding to how fast, or with how much pressure, etc. you draw. In other words, not completely (!) random. This doesn’t seem to be standard/what’s happening in affinity. In my understanding those “jitters” only adjust the (output) amplitude of the effect produced by the (input) controller and don’t yield actual jitter. If randomness is desired, the only option in Affinity would be to set the property to random and, thus, lose control. You cannot have both (control and randomness). Am I correct? And is this the intended behaviour? If so, the use of another word might be advised. "Diamond bug": When velocity is set for a vector brush or pencil, Designer creates jagged (diamond-shaped) brush strokes. If the stroke is rather straight and drawn with high velocity, the rough edges will stay. If the stroke is longer and curvier the jagged stroke tends to turn into a much smoother stroke as soon as the mouse button is released. Nonetheless, the stroke doesn’t seem to reflect the actual velocity changes applied and sometimes the jagged lines don’t disappear entirely. This behaviour has been demonstrated here as well. (Images 1 and 3 are before releasing the mouse button, 2 and 4 are after) "Umbrella bug": Additionally, the (vector) stroke often ends very abruptly in a big semicircle (umbrella), especially when drawing circles/spirals. All of the above-mentioned bugs appear not only in editing mode but also in the exported files: So, it’s not just a visual bug. They, unfortunately, render the velocity control pretty much useless. They also occur with clone brush, dodge & burn, sponge, erase tool and any other brush descendant. Other bugs: When the screen resolution is set to 1366 x 768 (typical laptop display resolution) or lower, the toolbar gets cut-off in Photo. I am aware of the option to undock the toolbar in the view menu but this is quite cumbersome when you start Photo for the very first time. CRITICAL: Batch processing of photos into the same directory and in the same file format as the original files (e.g. to create a lower quality copy) will result in overwritten (yes, deleted!) original photos without any prior warning. A message and an option to append some text to the exported file names would be strongly required. This, also, has been reported (here).I hope this was somewhat helpful and I'd love to see these issues resolved in the near future. Best wishes! ------------------------------------------- Affinity Designer Version: 1.5.1.43 Affinity Photo Version: 1.5.1.54 Operating System: Windows 10 Pointing device: Mouse
  11. When I use Affinity to straighten images I usually end up with a jagged broken line. I've taken to straightening with Capture NX which seems to do a better job. Is there a setting that might be affecting this option? See attachments...
  12. I asked about this before but did not get a very good answer so I will ask it again. How can I get rid of the jagged outline on this imported png image? I don't want to blur the image. But I need to get rid of the jagged edges. Please help me. Thanks
  13. I have imported a .png image, I put it on a dark background (filled rectangle) the edges around the image (object in the .png) has jagged edges how do I eliminate this jagged edge problem? Thanks.
  14. Hi, Can someone explain to me why the lines are so jagged (see screenshot), should be smooth. I'm sure it was OK before upgrading Cheers! Marcin
