  1. Hello everyone, From today i believe i have to start sharing few of our design works (actually i'm working alone but i do build a team from time to time depending on project size ) Most of our client/requesters are Church based and we really enjoy doing stuffs for them but what you will se here is more about Smarty Studio standing with other studio/teams together into what is to become Congolese Design Style. Well each country have it's own style of design but Congo doesn't have a proper thus most of Congolese designers simply clone/copy styles from everywhere. This is a beginning, please your inputs on each design palet/kit will be of great help and will help us improving better. Blessings !
  2. I Hi New user just wetting my toes on Affinity Photo. I loaded some shots from for practice and discovered a number of what appeared to be hot pixels red, blue and white 6 in total. I did a test photo on a white background and only came up with one of each color in different positions to the original photo? After loaded the first photo into Photoshop with nil hot pixels and the test photo came up clear as well. Next, I loaded both photos into DXO and again came up with nil hot pixels. See attached, I would be very interested in your findings. Shrunk photos from photoshop. I have not found the facility in affinity to shrink for emails yet! Cheers Montychristo
  3. In "Grid and Axis manager" the size of grid spacing measured in pixels. This is right for square grid, but has no sense for any other type of grid. Right now other grid types is defined by diagonal spacing in rotated pixels. The only reasonable way for artists measure non-square grid in pixels is to define some height or width of the grid in real non-rotated pixels, but not actual side of grid. To understand it better, please, take a look on my example, with typical for pixel artists 2:1 isometric grid.
  4. Hey guys, I hope I haven't missed something in the UI but basically I'm after a "lock transparency" feature that works the same way as in PS. It's very handy for blurring things that you don't want the edges to shrink/grow. It also has the secondary benefit of being able to paint inside already painted pixels without going outside the bounds. (I know this can be done by masking, but locking transparency may be the workflow of many already and means you don't have to create an extra layer to mask with).
  5. I drew the design in designer as vector. Then added a few pixel layers so I could "paint" in some texture. Grouped all the vectors and then did a selection from layer. Invert selection. Went to each of my pixel layers and hit delete to get rid of the overspray. But no matter what I try - editing in photo (from file menu), using the eraser brush (both programs), or hitting delete, I can't get rid of these weird pixels in the background. So I saved as PSD and took it into another program and that program does not show these pixels! Are they really there or not? I can't print this as it is way to big for a home printer. And if they are there, how the bleep do I get rid of them? If they aren't really there, then why am I seeing them? I need to be in Designer and add text to finish off the design. I guess I could finish it and then export as PSD again and take into another program and resave it out from there as the PNG that I need for final submission. Driving myself nuts today with this. BTW I love how I can go back and forth between Designer and Photo with the file menu. That was very slick. Sig
  6. Windows 10, x64 With "snap to whole pixels" option turned on: 1. Create a rectangle, select it, press and hold ALT and drag the cursor to copy the rectangle RESULT: new rectangle does not snap to whole pixels EXPECTED: new rectangle should snap to whole pixels. 2. Create a rectangle, select it, press ALT, release it and keep dragging the cursor to copy the rectangle RESULT: new rectangle snaps to whole pixels. EXPECTED: the same Shouldn't items that are created by ALT-drag snap to pixels? I think that they should.
  7. Hi there! Why after export everything becomes "pixel-like" ? I've attached 2 PNGs. These are parts of the same project - one exported and "screenshot'ed" and another just "screenshot'ed" from AD. Before export everything looks sharp (icons at the bottom) and soft (the wave under logo). Why after export everything goes wrong? The images I've attached are both PNGs, both are screenshots, both have the same DPI, dimentions etc. ? Is it possible to export sharp images, or it has to be always pixel-like and if so, why? best regards Cezary Kaczmarek
  8. Hello everyone, I have created several symbols in my AD document so I can test different color schemes in UI mockups. However I noticed that when I drag them into the canvas/artboard they do not snap to the pixels grid, becoming very fuzzy. Only if I release them and then start dragging again they will then start to snap to objects and moving pixel by pixel. It would be cool if they snapped to the pixels grid as soon as they are dragged onto the canvas so I can make quick drag and drop without having to realign them later. The three pixel alignment toggles at the top bar are on.
  9. The inches don't seem to convert correctly. When I set up a document to be 21" x 18" and click pixels, it goes to 6300px x 5400px It should be 3150px x 2700px I tried another way where I set up a document as 21x18", make my design, and export. It exports much larger than 3150x2700px*. It only correctly saves at the correct pixels if I type in the specific pixels, as opposed to the equivalent inches. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug? *PS: I thought it might have something to do with the DPI, but when switching from 300dpi to 150dpi** (which is what I need for Spoonflower fabric printing) and toggle back and forth between pixel and inches.... it still shows as 6300x5400px Yes, I know I could just type in the pixels but I was wondering why this was happening. And being able to accurately type in inches would be super easy (not having to figure out the correct conversion) **I think the 6300x5400px is CORRECT at 300dpi... but not at 150dpi. Why does the pixel not change is essentially what I'm asking? Also, 150dpi was not one of the presets on the dropdown menu, I had to type it out. Maybe that's the problem? Does it really matter?

    Pixelation issues

    I'm having a few issues with pixelation when working at high magnification and moving across the image, spot retouching. iPad Pro 9.7, 32gb
  11. What kind of magic would be involved to get the transparency tool to work on pixel based elements/layers?? Possible, no/yes?
  12. In Affine more often than not I want to offset a layer with a value in pixels rather than percent. This is not possible at the moment.
  13. Hi, I just started using Affinity Designer and I found one thing that significantly reduces my productivity (comparing to Inkscape). It is related to export of the vector image into multiple resolutions. On Android it is very common that one vector image is exported into multiple resolutions. Eg. launcher icon is exported into <project home>res/drawable-mdpi/ic_launcher.png with resolution 48x48px <project home>res/drawable-hdpi/ic_launcher.png with resolution 72x72px <project home>res/drawable-xhdpi/ic_launcher.png with resolution 96x96px ... Using Inkscape I made script exporting single drawing into multiple files. Is something similar possible with Designer? Thanks Tom
  14. Hello everyone, I spent quite some time searching for a topic on blurry pixels but couldn't find any. But I'm sure I must be not the only one with this issue. I'm drawing pixel-thin icons for an app and I can't seem to get shapes to look sharp in Pixel preview (either regular or retina). I've attached a gif showing how even though the X, Y, W and H values are integers and the stroke is one pixel thin, the shapes show up very blurry. Thanks, Fernando

    Designer + Photo = Love

    I started by using Designer to build the vector shapes of the hat, and filled the shapes with gradients. In Pixel persona I used texturizing brushes (from Frankentoon) for tinting and shading. Some additional lines, smooting and adding noise was done in AP as well as lighting. The seamless integration between the two programs makes me just love them...
  16. I'm making my letter on Twitter and Facebook "open" because I'd really like to see this addressed. I believe the issue at hand is also more relevant to a "bug", since the correct term is PPI and not DPI. You've responded to this issue in the forums, but I'm considering this topic an error that I feel many users would like corrected. Please consider making this change. Thank you. "Respectfully, I believe ignoring the significant difference between PPI and DPI is a huge mistake, and an irresponsible choice for a company that does what yours does. I understand you feel this is addressed. However, if the vibe I'm getting is correct, then you feel that so many people misuse the term DPI, it's not worth the effort to address questions and concerns if you change it. I think that's lazy. It seems like a couple lines in an FAQ that you could link to would take care of it. As far as professional work and the factor these properties have on the final outcome of your project, I think these differences are way too significant to ignore. If I create a document at 300 PPI, and then print it at 300 DPI and 1200 DPI, the difference is immediately obvious. With the exact same pixel data, the document printed at 1200 DPI is significantly higher quality. If I create a document at 1200 PPI, with 4 times the pixel data, the quality difference between a 300 DPI and 1200 DPI print is also immediately apparent. Again, the 1200 DPI print is far higher in quality, contrast, clarity of detail, color accuracy, and intensity. However, if I look at two images printed at 1200 DPI, one from a 300 PPI file and one from a 1200 PPI file, then the difference is almost completely indiscernible. This is also true printed at 300 DPI. In spite of having 4 times the pixel data in the same amount of space, the difference between the two printed images is almost impossible to discern. However, two images printed at a different DPI from the exact same digital file are *easily* distinguishable from each other. I'm an artist and designer, and I don't personally deal with printing images very often. That said, after 8 years doing this stuff, the difference between DPI and PPI has always been simple and clear, and I don't think there's a legitimate reason to use them interchangeably. Especially given the impact they have on the final outcome is weighted so differently. I've waited a long time for you guys to come to Windows so I could be done with Adobe, and seeing DPI every day instead of PPI won't change that. I just think the responsible thing to do is set an example, use the correct term, and help clarify that there is a difference between the terms. From what I've seen in the forums, a lot of your users also understand the difference, and it also frustrates them. It's a small change, but it could have a big, positive impact. The users frustrated by it no longer have to be frustrated, and all the people that don't understand the difference can start to. Please consider this. Thank you for your time."
  17. Hello everyone, I am new here and I heard quite a lot about Affinity Designer. I am thinking of getting a Mac mainly for that program. I just want to become more familiar with how the layers work as there are only two things right now I'm a little confused about. 1. From the different video tutorials I've watched, the structure of the layers appear differently for each video. There are two different structures. Here, each layer can be expanded and show the paths within the layer (which I'm use to.) But then here, when the man creates a new document, each path is it's own layer. So how does this work? How can there be two different structures? 2. I know this bends the rules of vector designing, but I don't always draw in closed paths. As a cartoon character designer, I prefer to draw more freely. So my question is, seeing how there is a pixel persona and the option to clip layers, is there a way to use the bucket tool to fill in overlapping paths done with vectors (fingers crossed)?
  18. Hello, maybe I'm just doing something wrong? I have my Affinity document set up to use Pixels as units. The drawing is 580px wide exactly. I copy everything and paste it in photoshop as curves, yet it's pasted at 154px (100%). If I scale the image to make it 580px, there is some white , jagged-fraying on the edges of the curves and it looks like crap. What am I doing wrong? Why aren't the programs 1 to 1 with each other? Thanks

    Scaled Pixel Layer Enlarges Pixel Size

    In Affinity Photo I have a pixel layer that I scaled up. I then used the eraser tool to erase part of the layer. The edge where I erased was pixelated looking at 100% zoom. It seems that when a pixel layer is scaled larger that the pixel size is also scaled larger. So, I decided to rasterize that layer. Then I used the eraser tool again. This time the edge where I erased was clean and smooth. I am assuming the rasterizing of the pixel layer set the pixels on the layer to the same size as the document resolution. Does this mean that every time I scale a pixel layer larger that I will have to rasterize it so that the pixels on that layer are set back to the same pixel size as the document resolution? This does not seem convenient. I would think that when a pixel layer is scaled up or down that the layer will adjust to the resolution of the document. I understand that an image layer would behave differently. I wasn't sure if this was a bug or not.
  20. Hello, I am trying to open a PDF as currently cropped and saved as a raster directly through Photo or Designer, but it doesn't seem to provide that option with the open dialog options, am I missing something? Thank you
  21. Hi Working with the sampling tool is great right now, although I think it would be useful if we could sample the average of multiple pixels. What do you think? Best regards Bauke
  22. Hi Folks and a very Merry Xmas to you all, I'm after some help again for a change. I have a project I have been working on and I now need to submit it to a specific website. Here is the issue... The project was created with the original document being set up as A4 size (Not sure why I picked this size but I did), I have now found out that my design needs to be submitted firstly in .jpeg format but also I am restricted to submitted it in the following dimensions... Width - 900px Height - 500px. I have tried simply set up a new project with those dimensions and then just drag my project into it and select my whole design and re-size it using the hold down shift and grab the top corner method but this totally throws my design out. The text won't re-size and some of the brushstrokes are still way to big. Is there are easier way? I am not familiar at all with the export persona but was wondering if there was a way I could use that? Any ideas folks? Mark
  23. I'm working on the 5K iMac. When I take a screenshot of an window and open the File in Affinity Photo the following happens: Zooming to 100% shows the window as big as it would on a non-Retina screen (I can deal with it, but Photos.app uses 100 % for pixel perfect view) The screenshot looks pixelated as it has been taken on a non-Retina Mac Zooming to 50% shows the window in its real screen size, but also pixelated Zooming back to 100% shows the retina resolution, the pixelation is gone Zooming to 50% shows again the pixelated non-Retina version, so text is not that crisp like in the original Changing the DPI from 144 to 72 without rescaling makes zooming consistent and always shows the retina pixels Bonus annoyance ;-): With both dpi values I have not found a zooming shortcut which shows me the screenshot pixel perfect on screen Cmd+1 and Cmd+9 behave the same I've attached a screen recording of this bug.ScreenFlow.mp4.zip
  24. Hi there, Is it possible to disable font aliasing so that I can use Pixel fonts? Pixel Fonts as in Any help would be great :-)

    resizing issue ap

    Found out recently that if I choose resize document and first untick resample and change the dpi, then tick resample back and change units from pixels to centimeters and do resizing on image and press ok, this brings quite strange and heavily pixelated results. If I do these in separate actions; first untick resample and change the dpi and press ok, then choose resize document action againg and change units and then resizing works ok.
