  1. Hi, in Affinity Photo, if my PNG has a white background, is there an easy way to make the background transparent? Similar to this technique: https://www.sitepoint.com/easily-remove-white-or-black-backgrounds-with-blending-sliders-in-photoshop/ It uses Photoshop's "Blending Options" inside Layer styles, which I didn't find in Affinity Photo ... Alternatively, is it possible to remove the background by playing with the color channels? If yes, how exactly would I do that? I know that I could use the selection brush or "Magic Wand" tool to remove the background, but I assume it's "more perfect" by using the blending technique or playing with the color channels. I'm new to image manipulation though, so I would be grateful for any help!
  2. Hi, I made by coincidence a background for my text but I dont know how. Could you tell me please? Thanks a lot!
  3. Hi Folks, After some help again. I have a logo I am trying to export for me to use in a Wordpress site. I have created my document (1200 x 300px) with a transparent background selected. I created he logo (Basic white text) and then exported it as a Jpeg. When I then uploaded into Wordpress all i get is a white background colour. Any ideas or suggestions? Cheers Mark
  4. I had created a text box and I would like to fill it with a color and even change the stroke. If this option already exist it will be great to learn how to do it, otherwise, it can be an interesting implementation because this will avoid an extra layer as a background for the text.
  5. hey there. i just got my hands on affinity designer and have allready a question i couldn't find an answer to. in affinity designer you can set up your document with page size and so on, fine. but if i choose, for example an A4 paper and set the background to transparent i get an A4-page that is transparent but surroundet by a black frame all over. if i drag an object on this "black frame" (don't know how to call it), it is no longer visible, and that's pretty disturbing. So is there a possibility to remove that frame so one has this grey and white blocks pattern all over the screen, and only a line to show my document size?? thanks in advance, a random dude
  6. Hello Affinity fans Today I drawn flamingos, interesting long-legged birds. I have made not use of textures, patterns, pixel layers or brushes, I just wanted a very simple illustration, just shapes, pen and gradients. Give a look at the illustration, drawn in Affinity Designer and tell me what do you think, leave your feed backs, write positive and negative The full project here on behance
  7. Is it possible to toggle the contrast of the transparent checkered background? Currently I place a dark rectangle object behind the white icons. I expected a document setup property to set this background light or dark. This property should stored in the project file. Also a button in the toolbar to toggle it fast would be nice.

    I made a little desktop background for myself. Don't know why I chose a stoned caterpillar in a weed field , but I like him. His name is Julius
  9. Good morning, all. I am new to Affinity and also new to creating SVG files. I feel as though I’ve got the SVG file creation part down. Lol. This is what I need help with, and I will try to explain this by example: Lets say that I import a simple two layer SVG file into affinity. By this I mean, a transparent background (as displayed by the white and grey checkers) and a layer on top holding the vector (as displayed by the shape represented in black so that I can see the transparent background behind the shape). Let’s say that the shape is a black rectangle. Inside the rectangle I would like to write text. Then, I would like to make that text transparent so that it appears to have been cut out of the rectangle, so I can see the checkered transparent background where the words used to be, in the shape of the text. How do I do this? If you could describe it to me in simple steps and assume that I’m a total n00b, I would greatly, greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much for reading my post!
  10. Hi all, tady I started my new project www.downbg.com
  11. Hey everyone! I'm trying to figure out how to take the text that I have on my image, and instead, cut those words out from the image to expose the background. I'm making a logo with a transparent background, and I want the text to expose the color of whatever the backdrop is at the time. I'm new to this, and so I would greatly appreciate your assistance. Thanks!
  12. Hello, just wondering how to do the following with Affinity. Let's say i have a photo of a nude woman and want to add some sort of transparency that when you see the photo of the nude woman, you do not see the skin, you see the photo of a landscape or a pattern. Hopefully, i am able to explain what i am looking for. Thanks for your help,
  13. I've been using AD for about a week now and I must say I love. I have a couple of tools and personalization options I still miss from Illustrator and I'm hoping to see them in Affinity soon. One of these is the option to choose the background color of a PNG file upon exporting. Setting a background in any color is fast and easy while creating the content, but exporting an image with a transparent background is impossible. Or at least I haven't found the way to do it.
  14. I'm running Windows 10 with Designer 1.6.4.104. Within the document, but not the palettes or status/menu bars, there is a yellow color cast to the artboards (see attached); even deeper in the background. Even within the otherwise neutral grey Color palette, the little circle swatches have the same cast. I can't see anything in the Preferences I can change. Is there a way to correct this? It makes judging colors properly impossible. The only other thing I can think of is I'm running f.lux color temperature software, but nothing changes when I disable that (maybe I have to remove it entirely?). Thanks!
  15. In AF i'd like to change colors used for checkerboard pattern. When working on UI elements document for my game, I use white for icons and color them in game engine. All I see in AF is parts that are on light gray. Checkerboard pattern needs to be close to 50% brightness.
  16. I have a photo of a person sitting on a carpet - she wanted the carpet removed - that was easy enough as I saw a tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lf6dh3wFbxo I was able to cut out the carpet. But now I don't know how to add my own background such as a colour or a colour gradient. I've tried the flood fill tool but nothing happens - and yes, I did change the colour. How can I do this in the simplest way possible?
  17. Hi Affinity Team, I am having some issues with PNGs with transparency. If I add these PNGs inside a CMYK document and export them as PDF I get different colors behind the transparency of the PNG. This happens when I use the format PDF/X-1a:2003 or PDF/X-3:2003. If I use the PDF/X-4 the transparency problem does NOT occur. I am also having these issues with other pixel graphics as well, when I use blend modes like multiply. Please check the files attached to see what I mean. It would be great to fix this issue since most professional printer would like to have files with the PDF/X-3:2003 format. Thanks and Kind Regards Tim test.afdesign Test.pdf
  18. Hi, I am designing a circular logo through affinity designer. I am having trouble removing the reset art board so that I can export my image just as the circle. I have been looking everywhere but I have not found a solution. I already set the background to transparent when I set up the document but it will not save without it. Essentially, I am wondering how to remove the background and save my design as a circle instead of also saving the white space background on the art board. Any help would be amazing I have been looking for so long and I am very frustrated! Thanks!
  19. I came across an issue when refining a selection using the foreground or background brush. Sometimes there are areas in an image that just can't be processed by the Matte brush completely correct. So then I use the background or foreground brush to tell AP that a particular area definitely belongs to the background or foreground. But as a result those areas are always extended from background into the foreground and vice versa. It seems impossible to determine the correct brush distance from the foreground/background border in order to achieve a clean edge. I know there is Quick mask mode, where masking works as expected, but it would be much nicer for the workflow to stay inside the refine dialog and immediately be able to correct those areas misinterpreted by AP when using the Matte brush, without making it even worse.

  21. A recent post in the Questions forum asked about seamless tiling. There are also video tutorials available, such as the one on Seamless Textures. I describe here how I created a seamless tile to form a repeatable background to the pages on one of my web site. The website was for a wood, so the starting point for the background image was a photo of the autumn woodland floor covered in leaf litter: This image will not tile seamlessly. The first step is to apply the Affine transformation (Filters > Distort > Affine) with an offset of 50% in each of the x and y axes. This gives: The left and right edges of this would now tile seamlessly (as would the top and bottom. But there is the mismatch along the central axes. To get rid of these I placed images of single leaves onto these axes. The leaves were scanned on a flatbed scanner; the individual images edited to remove the white background and they were then saved as .png images. The leaves were placed onto my background using File > Place, and then resized to some extent to get the right scale, and they were randomly rotated. This has now masked all the non-seamless axes. The Affine transform is now reversed, using the same procedure as before ( (Filters > Distort > Affine) with an offset of 50% in each of the x and y axes) This has now created a seamless tile. However, in this example, The placed leaves are conspicuously around the edges, so I added some more at random points over the rest of the image: I could have added more, but I chose to stop there. This image now forms a seamless tile. To demonstrate the effect, I placed four copies of the image together to show how they tile seamlessly (or they would do if I get my placing more precise). In this example, I started off with a background of leaf litter on the woodland floor. I could have started with a blank image and placed leaf images all over it to hide any background. Then I would begin the procedure as above. This would probably have been better since there would be no distinction between the the various leaf images; they would blend in better. However, for my purposes, I liked the original woodland floor image. For a background page for a website, I faded the image above to as not to be too intrusive. I used this technique for the Friends of Coombe Wood web pages. (Apologies for not updating it. I have been unable to visit for the last few months.) John
  22. When I start and open a file, the opened image is fixed on the upper left side of a fictive background (s. example). But this background is not a layer, as you may see on the navigator. How may I remove this area. This cannot be done by resizing document/canvas/pixel art document. Maybe I changed a preference, but I need help to restore the program
  23. Can you convert from color to grayscale and/or black/white in Affinity Designer and/or Photo? This is very helpful for designing for the very few people who cannot see color in checking for background/foreground contrast.
  24. Sometimes I download images from the internet or create files where there is NO background of any kind. This seems to be represented by a gray and white checkerboard grid, conveying that no background of any kind exists. But .... I cannot figure out how to make this happen at will when I want no baseline white background of any kind behind my art work. Help?
  25. Can anyone help me how to randomize a bunch of object's position and scale for instance i wanna do a starred background with various position rotation and scale. In AI there is transform each command and you can randomize transform applied on objects. Thank you.
