  1. Can we get one? Like this from CorelDRAW... Thanks!
  2. Good morning everybody, I am finding another thing that seems to be missing from Designer which I use an awful lot in CorelDRAW and which is kind worrying to me unless maybe I'm missing something. In Corel I have a blend tool. I believe Illustrator has the same thing though I don't use Illustrator. It allows me to create two objects and blend them together. This is particularly useful for creating interesting drop shadows and so on. Is there really no way to do this in Designer? I'm attaching a screenshot to show you what I mean. Corel allows me to choose which aspects of each object interact with one another. Hopefully there is some way of doing this or it will be added as it seems like a very important tool to me. Thanks very much and let me know! Phil
  3. Hi, is there still chance to have equivalents to illustrator effects like rough, blend, warp, zigzag, etc...? I've found that this has been addressed here for years. These are important things for me that force me back☹️ Thanks.
  4. Hello, I have a doubt, how to give the same effect as the "underlying layer" of photoshop? I know where the setting is in AF, but I don't know how to configure it to give the same effect. For you to understand the context, I have a "recolor" setting, a background image and a character, each in its own layer. I want to apply the "recolor" adjustment only to the character, but I want to apply the effect of the "underlying layer" of photoshop, as in the image I attached in this post. Thank you
  5. I have 2 separate curve layers that overlap. At a certain point for these two curves(between the two black arrows) I want the gradients to merge or blend together more. Is there a way to do this without converting these layers to pixel layers or doing something destructive?
  6. In the tutorial link to my post we can see pass through behave differently. "passtrough"'s blend mode let the group affect the below layer, "normal"'s blend mode prevent this behavior. In my configuration displayed in the linked image, I see that both behave the same. I am wondering if it is a bugg or intended.
  7. Hello world, I have created this simple typography logo. You can watch the timelapse on YouTube with this link Logo Timelapse
  8. I would like to see a way to blend objects together. Illustrator has this feature and it's pretty useful (the blend tool). Sorry for the unfair comparison, I really like what you guys are doing, I'm just trying to help you make a better product. You may have to do some interesting math, I think Illustrator takes the object with the maximum number of points and then maps the same number of points on the outline of the less complex object. Then you can calculate your angles, curves and coordinates.
  9. Hi there I´am trying to erase part of a mask using the brush in overlay blend mode. It suposse that if the mask is un black and white and the brush in overlay mode, when the brush pass over a white part of the mask, it should not affect whites, but it does. How can I fix this?
  10. Hello, I often use "blend if" in photoshop. I use it to convert a draw to coloring page or blend two images based on color. Does Affinity Photo have this feature ? Thanks !
  11. @MEB This is not only about using gradients. It's about dropping a long flat shadow. Regardless of the gradient. It would be great if Affinity Designer can generate such a shadow shape from another shape (or group or text). Or a FX. Maybe an option for Outer Shadow or a complete new entry to cast such long shadow.
  12. Hello, ...yes, i’m just another guy asking for features… But i’m just trying to help to make AD better. Please consider to implement asap this tools in Designer because: - Knife tool: It’s not possible to cut groups in a fast way. (yes we can perform compound operations but only on one object at a time...) - Links: It’s a must for all the designers since most of the time we work with images in low resolution (to be fast and light) and for the final work we replace the pictures in the link folder for Hi resolution ones. - Roughen effect on a VECTORIAL line (Smith, hard, regular, irregular). this is soo needed!!! (Also, if possible, (like in old FreeHand: Fisheye, fractalize…) - Blend tool……. (Waited and promissed for so long) - 3D perspective. (Yes we have now the isometric grid, but as it says, it’s isometric, doesn’t have perspective). And related: - VECTORIAL “envelop” distortions. (at least, if we already had this tool, we could import a 3D grid (from a 3D software, blender for example) and adjust the perspective... - Option to remove one guide directly hitting the delete key because: We designers like to use big artboards and lots of sketches inside the artboard. It’s not practical to zoom out every time we want to remove a guide!… And, if not asking too much, the possibility to create a guide after a vectorial object (Like FreeHand used to do). And, the possibility to lean the guides (like in corel). Thanks! Please, let's make this software a really alternative to illustrator! Because at the moment it’s not. I still need illustrator to perform this tasks above. Thank you for your time, Best regards, Jorge
  13. Hello everyone, I have a question about swapping faces in a picture. How do I make it look the swapped face like it was on the original picture. I mean the same colour, tone, texture et cetera. There is a tutorial for Photoshop that does exactly what I mean but I don' t know how to translate that to Affinity. Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7bDCFlSeGg Thanks in advance!
  14. How does one create a long shadow effect in Affinity Designer? There doesn't seem to be a blend feature. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tp_T5t8rJ8g
  15. Vic Asecas on our Facebook page asked about creating a long shadow, it would be good to have in future. Here's the example effect Vic wants to achieve: When I had a play I struggled to make it look as good, it seemed to me that the effect can be approximated with dark shapes and a gradient transparency, but the gradient has a straight profile perpendicular to the gradient path. In Illustrator, this effect can be achieved using blended copies of objects that go from e.g. 20% opacity down to 0% with a blend spacing of e.g. 1pt. Even with a long shadow this produces vector banding like the bad old days, so I'm sure there's a nicer way we could achieve it. Mesh fills would be one possibility, obviously the Blend tool on the roadmap is another, but maybe a Long Shadow layer effect/tool is another possibility?
  16. Hi all, Hopefully I have posted this in the correct place, although I'm not convinced I have, apologies if so. I have a problem with a panorama I have made. I didn't think to take a second row of photos for the sky, but didn't like the balance of the picture once I had blended the pano. As such I extended the sky vertically in affinity, however this has created an odd looking sky. The real solution would be to get it right first time; I will make sure to take more than one row next time, even if it is just blank sky. Out of interest though, is there anything I can do to homogenise the sky so it's not separated into the vertical zones as below? I believe the zones have been created by the colour/intensity of the lights from the buildings. Origional pano, screenshot from capture one: Pano with sky extended, screenshot from Affinity: Workflow: the pano is comprised of 17 images, all shot in RAW (3.2 secs ISO 100, F5.6) and WB corrected to same value in capture one 20, then files exported as 16 bit TIFFs to PTGui where the pano was stitched, then opened in Affinity to use Mesh Warp to adjust perspective and in-painting to accommodate the warp. The sky was then extended, as described above. Thanks in advance, Freddie
  17. I am at Page 82 of the Affinity Designer Workbook and followed the instructions to change the Inner Glow layer effect from Normal to Multiply, Screen, etc... but I don't see any change happening. I have a couple of questions: 1) Where can I see the 2 colors that should take part in the blending effect? I only see one gradient color in the Eyeball layer. 2) What should I see by changing the Blend mode in the Workbook example?
  18. Presets are available in many tools but Blend Options also needs a way to save presets because here sometimes we create complex curves. I wold also make a dropdown list with all the presets to be available in the tool window or replace that button with a dropdown that has an option to save a preset. I would integrate this dropdown style to presets in all the tools (black and white, gradient map, curves.........)
  19. I've brought this up a few times on the forums, but (and I'm getting desperate here) pleeeease add Dissolve to the Blend Modes list for layers and brushes - pretty pretty please! The tedious workarounds to achieve this effect simply aren't the same, and not nearly as effective. Dissolve is the easiest way to turn any, otherwise normal, brush into an amazing textural experience, and was one of the most used features for me in Photoshop. Dissolve played such a big role in my work that I've had to adapt my style completely after switching to Affinity, and I miss it dearly. I even took the time to record this little screen recording I'm working on to show why it works so well in Photoshop (just watch at 2x speed to save time): https://youtu.be/pywfxxuXaCc All I used in the video was a plain old, run-of-the-mill soft/feathered brush, but with Dissolve set as the blend mode. As you can see, it instantly becomes a magnificent texturing machine which has SO many practical applications, especially in creating digital illustrations. I've also seen it used excessively by some really big names in the creative industry, such as Matt Taylor (http://www.matttaylor.co.uk) and Studio Muti (https://studiomuti.co.za), just to name two heavy-hitters. I can't imagine it being very difficult to add another blend mode to the list, and I've been checking for new beta's daily hoping that dissolve made the list of added features. Please add it, for me, for others, and even for this poor, misunderstood zombie dude who would have been lacking a lot of gritty shading if I had painted him in Affinity without dissolve.
  20. When using a raster brush that has 'wet edges' enabled, it often automatically disables the wet edges when you switch to another tool (like the eraser) and then back to the brush again. It's not a big issue, but it would be really great if the brushes retained the wet edges setting to save the hassle of manually checking it again after using another tool. For some reason this doesn't always happen, but I thought it might be worth mentioning as a lot of the more 'intricate' custom brushes use wet edges for textures and effects. Similarly, and I appologise as I've mentioned this before, it would be awesome to have a dissolve blend mode for brushes and layers as it's incredibly useful for creating gritty textures and bitmap effects - it's also especially useful for setting work up for screen printing as the dissolve blend mode removes all anti-aliasing. I know there are workarounds for this, but the dissolve blend mode is a small addition to the blend modes list that would completely remove the need to spend time finding different ways of achieving a similar effect. I've seen it mentioned a few times in the forums, so hopefully it will be considered.
  21. Hello everyone, I have a huge issue with the Smudge brush tool in Affinity Photo (Mac). When I use it to blend between two colours, it messes them up completely. I tried a lot of settings, even tried the smudge pre-set from DAUB brushes library but they all do the same. Please see below screenshots of the setting used and some tweaks with flow and strength. Can anyone help me out??
  22. At my current job we use Corel Draw in our graphic design department. I have switched to Affinity Designer and Photo for my personal work and these are my 5 features I use very often in Corel that I would love to see added. 1. Boundary Tool - Have a print/cut Roland printer and this tool is essential when creating a cut line around multiple objects. 2. Envelope Tool - Use this quite often for text effects. Converting to curves and manipulating from there works alright but Corel leaves the enveloped object still as text and can be still edited. 3. Flood Fill Tool - I'm able to replicate this using boolean operations but involves way more steps and occasionally will end up with odd quirks and unwanted results. 4. Blend Tool - I believe I have seen this is coming on the roadmap so hopefully soon 5. Raster to Vector Tracing - Also seen this is coming. Currently using Inkscape for this feature and then exporting/importing into Designer All this being said Designer is still one of the best applications I have used. How great this application already is has me very excited for future updates and enhancements.
  23. Hello, Currently trying out Affinity Photo and messing around (trying to learn it after many years of Adobe Photoshop) and I've found a reproducible crash. Previewing the blend mode fast from Normal to Erase on the Blur layer (inside Group 1) then to something else and back to Erase causes the application to crash. https://streamable.com/tay53 A sample project file has been attached.

  24. I struggle to create gradient fills easily and efficiently. Here are the two methods that I use, and perhaps the only way. I'd be curious if someone out there has another method. Method one: Create object select "G" on the keyboard draw gradient Select the Gradient color box at the top toolbar make active a node on the gradient line select color from colour box Repeat steps 6 -7 for each node in the gradient line. Method two: Create object select "G" on the keyboard draw gradient Select the node in gradient bar Select Swatches tab in the docker on the right Select color in the Swatches pallet. Repeat steps 5 -6 for each node in the gradient line. Suggested Improvements: A) What I would like to see is the ability to double click on the color node on the object itself, not the node from the methods above, and by double click the node a swatches pallet opens for you to make your color selection. B) Another option would be to select color node, select the eyedropper in the tool bar and while holding the Shift key down select the color you want applied to that node. This method is great for sampling color from other drawings or reference images. I appoligize if there is another method alreay in place, I just haven't come across it yet. Thanks in advance. -Bill
