  1. For a few applications, e.g. with shapes with the 3d effect, it's important to be able to visually "cut" a hole in the shape without actually altering the original shape. It's also useful in general to be able to remove a shape's area from a drawing without having to mess around with subtracting the shape or shapes from (especially since the order of the layers sometimes gets messed up if you don't subtract the shape from each shape individually, which means a lot of copy-pasting). So I'm asking if it's possible to set a shape to act as a visual "removal" effect. If it's not clear what I mean,
  2. Hi. Something strange happens to me with affinity photo, which doesn't happen to me in any other artistic program, or not. The problem is that the background, flickers or changes color, becoming a little darker or lighter with certain actions (it is possible that even the canvas does, but where it really shows is in the background), I would say that what does is darken for half a second and then regain normal lighting.It happens in two ways. The first is done randomly when I press the alt, control, or shift modifier keys. The other, always happens in the same way, and it is curious because it
  3. 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.
  4. Hi Im going to make album art and want it to have that old vinyl record look. Anybody know where i can find background paper texture for this purpose?
  5. I have Affinity Photo V1.9. I have a photo of 2 people that I want to frame. Problem is they are up pretty high in the picture and I wanted to expand the little bit of background that is above them a little further so that they appear a more centered in the picture. Is there a way to do this in affinity photo?? Thanks very much in advance for any assistance.
  6. Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a plugin (hopefully compatible with Affinity Photo) that can delete a background automatically without pay per image? So basically with just a click of a button (no masking). Examples: https://www.remove.bg/ (great results) https://imagezerow.com/#/ https://www.unscreen.com/ (video/gifs) https://burner.bonanza.com/ and so on.. Hopefully this will become available in Affinity Photo.
  7. Hello, I am new to Affinity Photo. I am trying to save a .afphoto document in .PSD format. It does successfully export the file but for some reason only the background layer gets deleted. When I open the .PSD file again in Affinity Photo the background layer is not visible. Can someone help me with this? Also, I've made the switch to Affinity Photo recently and I've been loving it. Thank you.
  8. 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.
  9. I've looked at tutorials for this, but I could not find a great solution to this. What's the best way to go about removing the background from this dog?
  10. I wonder if I just screwed up a setting without realising - or if there's been a change in the beta in comparison to the release: The background (canvas) of the layer thumbnails now shows up as a transparent checkerboard - instead of a solid surface as in the main window. Very irritating. Is there a way to turn this of again? Cheers, Timo
  11. I don't know if I'm the only one having this issue but this is really starting to get on my nerves! Is there any way to make a transparent background in Affinity Designer the usual checkerboard style instead of white? It makes it impossible for me to work with white... It's just not visible, I have been looking for the last hour online, and I know I looked before but ended up giving up... If no one knows what I mean, I just drew a white line and it's not visible on the left hand side, but its evidently there as you can see on the right! If anyone knows how to change it pleas
  12. Made from this excellent tutorial:
  13. This has been happening for a little while: if i create a new document of any specs, I see the outline of the documents border as a grey box, but there appears to be a static portion of the document that is either white, or the transparency checkerboard if I've checked transparent background. The rest of the document background remains black. Zooming in or out or scrolling around will not change where this visible area appears on my screen; it's always located in the upper left corner of the window. It feels like it might be a screen redraw bug, but I'm not sure. I just tried a document I cre
  14. Hi Affinity Forum! I'm fairly new to Affinity and having been learning as I go since buying it over the summer, but I have come across a hurdle that I need some help with. I'm in the early stages of founding a new online wine startup (caminodelvino.co.uk) and I have been practising and playing around with my photo and editing skills in the run up to launch. Using a mini home studio as my setup, I've managed to edit a photo (see wine photo attached) to an acceptable level so far and recently, used the healing brush tool to edit out the crease line on my backdrop so that it looks more
  15. Quick question guys (thanks in advance), to a very elementary question. I've done this before but can't figure what I'm missing to perform it again. I'm simply trying to make the artboard background invisible (screenshot below) but need the logo image to be white (I made it gray so you could see it in the screenshot). I can't remember how to get rid of the background! feeling like a dork, appreciate your help, -Christo
  16. Hey everyone! The background color is bright even though the normal UI is set to dark. This isn't great to work with. I am using iPad mini 5, iOS 13.4.1, Designer 1.7.1. Best wishes, Shu
  17. Hi, I'd like to set a colour (not the default black) for the workspace background which is different to the document area, but I can't see how to do this. Can anyone help please? Cheers, H.
  18. I am new to Affinity to to photo editing. I am practicing from the purchased workbook. However, I have a deadline to meet and can't figure out how to change the background of my photos to solid black. I received the ceramic images photographed with a mixture of busy backgrounds. I am re-photographing all 30 of the ceramic pieces on black cloth backdrops, but I am running out of time. Where can I find step by step instructions on how to take a photo and change its background to solid black? Thank you so much for your assistance!!
  19. I am a newbie for affinity photo. I am trying out how to make a photo or an image background transparent. I have tried the above method and I still get the white background as saved file. Can someone show me a YouTube link if there is any? (I have found one link and I also tried what it says but still I get a white background instead).
  20. When I paste in something from some random website, or something from an another app — I get this WEIRD BACKGROUND i can’t remove. I found a workaround by using the effects presets, but it’s REALLY ANNOYING. SOMEBODY FINALLY FIX THIS OR GIVE US THE ABILITY TO IMPORT TEXT WITHOUT FORMATTING. This alongside how Affinity doesn’t remember my choice for spelling after I close my documents — and the fact how AFFINITY SEEMS TO THINK THE WORD “AUTO” IS MISSPELLED makes me literally scream every time i pick my ipad lol. come on guys please fix some of this stuff soon FullSizeRender.mov
  21. I'm sure there's a perfectly simple answer to this question, but I'm new to publisher and I don't have a book to refer to. After assembling my document, I decided to put in a semi-transparent image beneath the composition. When I placed the image on the lowest layer, I noticed that all my text was sitting in white, horizontal boxes. Now my document looks like a ransom note. I've looked in every menu and every tool, and I can't remove the white background behind my text. Any thoughts? Image attached.Thanks in advance. P.S. Whats the difference in function between the Place Image to
  22. 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.
  23. 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 give
  24. I placed an image into a Publisher document page and added text within the image area. After grouping all of the elements, with the group selected I exported to JPEG ("Selection with background"). The resulting JPEG file contained a thin white border that was not in the original file. Then I tried exporting using the "without background" setting. Same result. Then I tried it as a PNG ("selection with background"). Same result. Next I tried it as a PNG without background and finally the thing was exported without the thin white rule. This has happened several times when I've exported a sel
