  1. Hello, I've been tasked with making a logo for a client of mine and have ran into a dead end basically at the very end. My issue is this, I have my completed artwork ready to export, I use the default (EPS for export) preset and created the file. When previewing my file on the default Macos image viewer it displays it correctly with my shapes, gradients etc. Now I want to take my EPS files and open them in Affinity Photo and Publisher, both for mockup and business card work respectively. My vector artwork has missing elements and the elements that did stick have wrong gradients/colors. I thought this was a issue with my document so I opened a new one but the problem persists. When opening the said eps file Publisher and Photo they will always display the same missing elements and artwork. Ive tried expanding the artwork but the issue persists. I have no idea what else to do, I can only come to a assumption that Affinity Designer can't export EPS correctly. I even selected the artwork and changed it to one of the default grays found in the swatches and when exporting it the artwork comes out intact!!! Below are the steps I did to come these same results every time along with screenshots. 1. At my original document where the logo was created I then selected the one I want to use. 2. Next hit the menu bar and choose export 3. From there choose EPS for export and for the AREA choose selection without background and leave the other options untouched. 4. For this example I made a folder and exported the file to that location my desktop. 5. Here you can see the file in the folder I created and the preview it ends up showing. * There is no text because it is colored white so its hidden here. 6. Here I'm going to open the file in Designer. Notice how the artwork and the gradient looks. > These are just shots of the same EPS opening in Publisher and Photo. > I copy and pasted the same artwork but changed it to one of the greys in the default Greys swatches panel. Here I opened the EPS and it came it out intact! In the end maybe I'm still doing something wrong with the way the export is. If someone can help me with this I would definitely appreciate it! I want to continue using Designer to make my branding, and logos, etc.
  2. I totally forgot to post this here, which is really dumb of me, because this is probably one of the most important places that this should be posted! I worked with the lovely folks over at Serif/Affinity to create this official sample artwork for the release of Affinity Designer 1.7. You can access the working file of this illustration both on the desktop as well as iPad versions of Designer by browsing the sample artwork section, which will allow you to have a look 'under the hood' to see how the illustration was put together. The artwork also shows up for a moment in the latest Affinity 1.7 video advertisement, and in two of their latest tutorial videos. Though Designer is primarily a vector based app, I created this piece entirely in the Pixel Persona using raster brushes to show just how versatile the app can be. You can see more of this over on my Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/christidutoit ...and if you'd like to read my ramblings, I did an interview on the Affinity Spotlight blog too: https://affinityspotlight.com/article/christi-du-toit-digital-but-hand-drawn-with-lots-of-grit/ Hope you guys like it!
  3. Hi! I've recently got access to an iPad Pro and I've been dabbling with Affinity Designer. Great stuff, but I've ran into limitations that break my colouring workflow. First let me explain how I do it on the desktop: Draw a vector shape Apply a global colour to this shape Create a pixel layer inside the shape Apply a Colour Overlay effect to the pixel layer Attribute a global colour to the above effect Draw on this layer, the pixel brush colour doesn't matter since the Overlay effect always overrides it Repeat steps 3. to 6. for every colour I want to draw inside the shape Move on to the next shape and start from 2. again This way if I want to change any colour after the fact, all I have to do is edit the global colours and all parts of the illustration respond accordingly, even the pixel layers. The iPad version of Affinity Designer does not have global colours, nor it does not support attributing swatches to layer effects... this fundamentally breaks the method of controlling colours described above... I've already requested both features on the appropriate forum, but until they get implemented I'd need an alternative method. My question is, what alternative methods of recolouring the artwork should I use? What do you use when you want to recolour the artwork after you're done? Thanks in advance!
  4. Hey all, I've been working on a deck of cards. Still trying to flesh out the main theme I want to go for but right now its sort of based on Tarot cards. Spades, Clubs, Hearts, and Diamonds are also Swords, Wands, Cups, and Pentagrams respectively like in a tarot deck. There's also 4 colors instead of 2. The idea is for this deck to also be the minor arcana of a tarot deck and later I can design a "major arcana expansion" deck that when combined with this deck would make it into a full tarot deck. The major arcana card in a tarot deck are the ones with names like "The Magician", "The Fool", "Death", "Justice", etc. The minor arcana are the 4 suits with the Ace, 2-10, and the court cards so that would be this deck. Maybe even will include a couple Major arcana as the Joker cards. Like "The Fool" and "Death" cards since most playing card decks have 2 jokers anyways. I'm also playing around with a duality idea of each of the court cards having slightly different sides. One being normal and the other side being a bit rough or unkempt. This would make them not perfectly symmetrical which would also be good for using them as Tarot cards since a card being upside down means something different than if it is turned right side up. Most number cards can show upside down except for the diamonds so I still need to figure out that for the 2-10 of diamonds cards. Anyways, I'm rambling on now. So what do you think? Any critiques or suggestions on the design? TL;DR - I'm designing a deck of cards. What do you think?
  5. Hi all, I haven't really had time to look into this due to time constraints on other work (sorry....), but is there any good IT related (pref. vector) artwork available for the Affinity apps? It would be nice to directly use stuff from a e.g. artwork/icon library instead of importing things. If there's no such thing yet, any tips, links etc. to useful artwork relating IT subjects - think artwork regarding pc, tablet, phone, internet, switches, routers, viruses, malware, hacking etc. imagery - and basic chart/graph/diagram stuff will be greatly appreciated! Anything to make slides more interesting to look at, but avoiding the more standard (cheesy) photo stuff you find on a Google search or at a stock site. So something that looks a bit more pleasing and professional, and make it possible to quickly start building up presentation material ;) Free or commercial work is not an issue. cheers all for any answers, rob
  6. I was using the iMac enlarging and exporting my work to desktop. it worked fantastic for weeks and suddenly it no longer works. go through the same process and now nothing on the desktop. i enjoy exploring the Affinity Photo application. have been using it for over a month now. this is the second time asking for help. i am not very techno-savvy. but it is a puzzle that my jpg worked well and then nothing. 16"X20" portraits, 24X36 artwork and others. thank everyone who comments, in advance. thank you so much. your service is greatly appreciated. i would like too one day return the favor. where to start? my images are too large to transfer. they are for printing. thank you for your time & consideration. ali black
  7. This feature is from illustrator (i used cs4). this is very powerful features which allow to re-color any part of an object: symbols, shapes, groups etc' It shows the user all the color used, and let him modify any of them. saves the user time of selecting objects and sub object individually. Attaching pic. also the ability to make a keyboard short cut to it is vey important. I'm very miss this thing. Thanks, Rotem.
  8. Hey folks, back again with a small composite made of three photos from last year's trip to Bali and some burning sky stuff I shot during summer. Result: It could need some more finetuning for sure, but I am pretty happy with how it turned out. What do you think? Sources: Cheers, Marc
  9. Hey folks, finished another edit of a photo from my trip through Vietnam. Still not sure what to think about the "water" and its shore... What's your opinion about it - does it look too unnatural? I was trying keep no straight shore line... Original Edited in Affinity Photo Cheers, Marc

    This time I was experimenting with some layer options (3D for the birds and on me), dodge and burn and blendmodes for painting in some radiation around the lightsource. Hope you like it - cheers, Marc
  11. Hey folks, another photo manipulation because of a monsun like weather on the Hai-Van-Pass in Vietnam. The sun looks a bit fake, it is just a white half ellipse with gaussian blur - do you have any recommendations for a better processing? Processed in AP: Original: Cheers, Marc
  12. Hey folks, this is my 2nd attempt in Affinity Photo. What do you think about it? Expect more edits soon Best regards, Marc
  13. This will be the thumbnail for my next video. The character was drawn in Krita, everything else, Affinity Photo
  14. I have many artboards in Affinity Designer (more than 50) Each artboard will be a single page in a PDF document that I will export. As I understand it there are two routes to exporting PDFs: File > Export > PDF Make a slice for each artboard, and export each page as separate PDF The first option is problematic because in the exported PDF, artwork from one artboard, if larger than the artboard itself, is showing up on neighbouring artboards (i.e. pages). See the PDF attachment: the maroon rectangle overlaps the second artboard and (and the same in reverse for the green rectangle overlapping the first artboard). I'm aware that the obvious answer to this is move the artboards further away from each other but this isn't ideal for a few reasons: As I say, this document has over 50 artboards representing pages in the exported document so spacing them far enough apart from each other such that photos and other artwork don't overlap other artboards isn't feasible, especially as the artboards masks the artwork beyond the edge of the artboard; its impossible to see where the bounds of the artwork is to mitigate overlap on other artboards I'm actually trying to place two artboards side by side to represent each spread in the book in order to actually visualise what the art looks like together as a spread without a gap. So, I was wondering if there is an option I'm missing somewhere in File > Export > PDF that I can turn off artwork from separate artboards overlapping and appearing on other artboards (i.e. pages) in the export? At a push I'm aware that I can use option 2. above as a work around for this problem i.e. slicing up the artboards using export persona and exporting each board as a separate PDF document. But of course this leaves me with the hassle of having to combine all the PDFs back into one document using some third party program every time I want to export a version of the PDF document for preview. I'm also not sure what effect another round of compression will have on the document and am therefore reluctant to use this method especially as this will be going for print. Any help would be greatly appreciated! test5.pdf
  15. So, I just recently purchased Affinity Photo in hopes to have a software like photoshop to draw and paint on and the reviews looked pretty good. But, when I try to draw using the paint brush it pixelates first and then becomes a line and I have no idea what to do and there was no guide as to what can be done. I saw a video where it said the software needs to be set up in a certain way to draw and paint efficiently. If there is set ups to this please let me know. Also, there seems to be some color glitch where i select the color but still can't paint it on the canvas. Help Me.
  16. Greetings folks. In this thread I will simply be documenting the journey, of things that I create with Affinity. This is not meant to be a thread for tutorial, rather a thread for what can be made with the software. With that on the side, feel free to ask questions if you have, I will be happy to answer. Cheers!
  17. Brian nice graphics series!!; A question, since you use the forum as a personal site, why do not you also share AD files with other users? It would be very useful and not just an opportunity to show your work. thanks!
  18. Jut a first attempt using some of your elements…

  20. Really wanted to do a DOOM version of my branding for a while, so I took elements from both the original logo as well as the reboot and mashed it together. Really happy with the results. This is my first big project fully utilizing Affinity Designer. Fully vector and fully in-house.

  22. Can anyone tell me if with Affinity photo on iPad pro, will I be able to resize images? Like in photoshop - image- resize- ... I need to be able to say make a 16x20 inch 300dpi image bigger to say A1 size. Also, whats the biggest image size I can work with? I don't need layers so much, just canvas and dpi size up to 300dpi.
  23. Hi, I am presenting a series of drawings with monuments of Paris ... Regards
