  1. Hi guys, I just uploaded a new tutorial video about how to change skin color. I hope you find it helpful. Thank you!
  2. Hi guys, so I made a video about 5 tips in Affinity Photo (Photo Persona/ main workspace). I hope this is useful for you especially for a beginners and new users. Thank you!
  3. This tutorial is for you when you're just starting out with Affinity Photo. This video covers as many basics and essentials which I believe any Affinity Photo user should know. I've added timestamps below the video for EASY NAVIGATION! Keep in mind that this is not an in-depth course. As a bonus I've included my Workflow Booster Cheatsheet (in the video description on YouTube), to at least 3X your workflow. Enjoy!

  4. Dear Affinity Designer developers, As much as I like Affinity Designer, can you please add this quite important feature as many people have requested for this since 2014?! I have seen this topic on the forums since 2014 and it is quite frustrating that I am not able to use Affinity Designer for print on demand- the major reasons I purchase AD in the first place. I have enjoyed learning how to use AD for over a year from scratch and I'm not an experienced graphic designer as I'm still learning everyday and still enjoy discovering new features but as seen in the forums, time and time again even with examples of blurry images with jagged edges, it's evident I'm not the only one experiencing this. It's not possible that it's because all of these people complaining don't know what they are doing- even experienced graphic designers have complained about this. Below is an example of a 6000 x 6000 px file exported as a PNG at 300 dpi and imported into RedBubble and the 1st image shows the original scale at 57& as shown on the POD platform, however as the subsequent images show, when scaled down to 35% and 25% respectively, the image becomes fuzzy, with any outlines/strokes appearing pixelated/ jagged and with typographic designs, the fonts become less legible and distorted. It's odd because the more you scale down, the worse it gets. Yet other images on the platform appear crisp and sharp and I bet they used Illustrator. What I have learned is that it has something to do with switching anti-aliasing off when exporting the file. A feature other software like Adobe illustrator have but Affinity Designer doesn't. Apparently switching anti-aliasing off prior to exporting the image makes all the difference, producing that sharp crisp image everyone is after and that's why in the forums people keep asking "how to switch anti-aliasing off" in Affinity Designer (since 2014) and it's still not been resolved. What's the point of designing in a vector graphic software if you can't have crisp sharp exported images? If all of us are wrong can please put out a tutorial showing you export a large high resolution PNG image (image and typography) into a dummy RedBubble account as an example? or show us what we are doing wrong! Thank you.
  5. Hi everyone, I just started using affinity designer and I know only some basic stuff. I am wondering if there is any good tutorials out there the will help me get familiar with using this app!
  6. I do repetitive tasks where I have scans that need to be resized and cropped to a specific dimension. In my previous program (you know the one) I would set the px to 500 x 668 in the crop size boxes and so when I cropped it was already the correct size for me. So I guess it was resizing and cropping at the same time. I can't see how to do this on Affinity. I am so used to doing things this way I cannot even work out how to do it a long way round. If I crop first I crop it to the wrong aspect ratio and then when I resize to my specific dimensions I am distorting the image. Help me please! I am very new to this program, I would like to be able to use it but this is my first brick wall that could potentially destroy my resolution to free myself from 20 years of dependence to a company who don't give a flick about me!
  7. Hi, in Illustrator it is easy to save a color. I can not see a possibility to do so in the designer. I need to save the color for my outlines... Please help out THANKS
  8. I recently purchased AffinityPhoto and now making my way through the AffinityPhoto Workbook ( http://a.co/d/bmZJaJH ). While the Workbook examples are easy to follow, the Workbook doesn't explain the "when" and "why" behind the steps taken, and I haven't (yet) found a basic explanation of the impact of the various adjustments, filters and such within AffinityPhoto. Consequently, I don't have a framework to guide me through what feature(s) to use based on typical issues encountered in the RAW file. Does a basic tutorial or guide exist that explains what AffinityPhoto is "doing" through its features to the RAW format? Would a generic book on digital photography answer these kinds of questions (e.g. http://a.co/d/gRrCBe3 ), or does one learn how to image edit based primarily on trial-and error? Thanks!
  9. I have just received the beta copy of Affinity for windows 10. :Like many others - I was looking forward to upgrading from PPX9 and getting something great. BUT my initial experiences are only annoying which has dampened my whole feeling. 1. My login was not remembered on this forum yet I have used it for a long time (12 years) with PagePlus, from X3 to X9. I had to create a new login as mine was obviously there and so I could use it again. 2. I opened a page and started to play around. Let's open a square and give it rounded corners, and fill it. Very basic but I am just starting and learning. (I thought the commands used in PP would work but they seem to have been thrown away). I could make a square and round the corners but only one at a time, not all together. But I could not fill it with color. Stupid me, I thought. Oh well, look in the help. Fill color = nothing. I click on the 'fill' next to the 'rectangle' nothing changes. So I thought I'd try a tutorial, nothing either. There seems to be nothing much to help people who are not full-time illustrators or similar. Is Affinity for them and not for people like me who would use it to make printed brochures and online graphics???? Why does it take sooo long to open a new document?? I draw a line and want to widen it, nothing works. My joy and anticipation at getting Affinity has evaporated. I read in one tutorial that I may need to buy and download another program to make Affinity work, is this true? You may as well say good bye to me and most of those others I talk to, we don't have funds nor the will to buy to make work. I even now doubt you will reply to me. Good thoughts intended only here.

  10. I have been doing car designs on Affinity Designer for a while now, but have never seemed to have been able to colour them in using the fill tool. Any help?Porsche GT3 RS.afdesign
