  1. Hello Everyone, Well i know this have been asked for long time by many but also wanted to add my request into the long long list How come Affinity Designer can't do this kind of simple stuff Inkscape can do using it's interpolate extension and Ai can do with it's tool ? i mean, i'm not asking affinity to be like Ai nor Inkscape but the mesh you will see attached here was created in less than 30sec on a very old laptop running Linux Fedora 29 beta with inkscape installed. Please guys not only this tool but make it happen with more tools straight from your Knight Bag, make me smile like you did with the new thing you have added to the pen tool of APublisher thus making it 10 times better than the Pen tool implemented into ADesigner ... Well this one still need to grow to where APub stand but ... get it done guys and ... make me smile. BTW it's free to use for anyone who feel it may be of interest both Personal & commercial, the SVG you can use to recolor with ADesigner or APhoto. Enjoy ! drawing.svg
  2. I often walk past this tree and always thought at the right time there was a photo there . Cloudy day worked well . The background was made from the top of the right hand side image What was going to be one of my quick edits but turned into a bit more ; again original files masked out with the Selection brush mostly >> top of tree was blurred several time while being rotated this way and that Copy/paste the tree images with layers onto the blurred background >some more masking >> lot of moving images around to get something that looks balanced Should have put it away for a day or so at least before sharing -- can be amazing what will be seen and notice with fresh eyes -- A mentor of mine; Peter Eastway said he and staff would often look at his main composition images for a month or two; or more before considering the photo to be as perfect as possible . That's why he is a master; or maybe it's grand master several times over of photography. If you fly QANTAS his photos are used in the magazines --- good job; being flown to all parts of the world to take photos and then getting paid a lot for them -- worth googling As always, honest comments (CC) and questions welcome Fz300 panasonic -- I'm currently rekindling my love affair with my little mate Pana :lol:
  3. I have a text layer with an outer shadow layer effect on it and is set for multiply. When I look at the pdf it looks fine. But when I print it the layer has a faint background lightening. It seems to only be for layers with effects on them. Thoughts?
  4. Hello everyone I have a query for you I'm experimenting on a project in which i would need to add text on a blindfold and make it look as if it's painted on/on the blindfold . I found that "negation" blend mode gives the best results in terms of visible texture of the blindfold , however because of the blend mode and the light unnatural black spots appear . How would you guys suggest getting rid of the black spots (The issue is at the R letter where there is quite a lot of distortion of colors)

    I started this thinking it would be much easier to draw than the Maserati was. It wasn't. LOL
  6. Begin previewing a filter (I've been playing with Halftone, start there if others don't work) on a raster layer (that presumably has other layers beneath it) During filter previewing, drop down the blending mode menu and hover over different selections in order to preview the filter with the blending mode The canvas flickers but the blending mode on the canvas doesn't reflect what the mouse is hovering over. However, clicking on the blending mode does force the canvas to reflect the selected mode - it's just the blending mode menu hover that doesn't properly render the preview on the canvas.

    Color blending

    When will real color blending is coming in ipad version . Because that mixer brush doesn't do it. It's just smudges the Colors not blending them like photoshop.please work on this feature
  8. Affinity Designer 1.6.4.104 The problem is when i try to export an object and choosing Selection without background, the Soft Light blending effect doesn't work. I think it is working on the previous version (1.6.3) Maybe you can try my screenshot to make sure. Thanks!
  9. So, I am learning vectoring, coloring, etc with Affinity Designer and I am reading some tutorials on different projects I want to try. One such tutorial has steps to blend 2 colors together then extract the shades from the blend to create a palette. The steps for Illustrator are listed in the attachment and I am wondering if Design has the same ability?

    Layer group blending bug

    Hi, There is a bug in blending of layer groups in AF 1.6.1.93 when all of the following conditions hold: - layer group contains no pixel layers, not even disabled ones - layer group contains a live filter layer - blend mode of layer group is set to something other than Normal Easiest demonstration I have is to take the attached afphoto document, and experiment with deleting the empty and disabled pixel layer. Deleting this layer should make no difference, but the image rendered is completely different. To see the change you may need to force a redraw to get around a failure to refresh the image, you can do this by disabling the layer group and re-enabling it. The correct application of the blend mode happens only when the pixel layer is present. layer_group_blending_workaround3.afphoto
  11. In AP you can achieve a pencil sketch effect by taking your layer stack, 1) Desaturate with an adjustment layer. I use Channel mixer, and Grey output channel. 2) Layer/Merge Visible 3) Nest a new Invert adjustment within the new pixel layer 4) Also nest a new Live Gaussian Blur layer within the new pixel layer, radius around 1.6 5) Set the blend mode of the new pixel layer to Color Dodge See attachment for result. This also work if your layer stack already included various live adjustments. However this removes the ability to further edit the adjustments in the below layer stack because they have already been "rasterized" into the merged layer as well. More precisely their further modifications will not be reflected in the end result as if they have been done before the pencil sketch effect. Is there a way to achieve the same effect (blending math) and still be able to edit the preexisting adjustment layers and have them affect the result in the same way as if they have been modified before creating the pencil sketch effect?

    Hard mix mode banding

    Steps to reproduce in AP 1.6.1: 1) Have a pixel layer 2) Duplicate pixel layer 3) Nest a new Invert adjustment within the new pixel layer 4) Set blend mode of the new pixel layer to Hard Mix. Vertical bands occur in the image preview, see attachment. They move around randomly when changing zoom of view. The bands tend to occur also at 100% zoom, but are not present in the result of Layer/Merge Visible.
  13. Affinity Photo includes an awesome "Blend Ranges" feature that I use to accomplish exposure blending with my photographs. It takes a little practice, but this tool is more flexible than Photoshop's "Blend If" sliders (because it supports customizable and non-linear luminosity feathering), and more efficient than Luminosity masks (smaller file size). I would love to see the efficiency of this feature further improved by the addition of presets within the blend ranges panel to create common blending curves, which would save me the trouble of frequently recreating similar curves over and over again. Presets such as "highlights only", "midtones only", "shadows only" or combinations of these would be a real time saver. It would also be great to see the histograms of the current layer, and composite histogram of the layers below, drawn behind the respective curve graphs in this panel. Without histograms it's hard to visualize how the luminosity information is distributed across the current layer and the layers below, and creating the blend curves becomes a bit more of a trial-and-error process to find the right spots in the X-axis to start or end your curve. Photoshop users have plugins like Raya Pro and Lumenzia that make exposure blending easier, although they suffer from poor UI and other issues. It would be great if Affinity Photo put some more effort into fleshing out the Blend Ranges feature for photographers who want to do manual exposure blending.

    The moonlit prison tower

    Thinking back about the great paintings of Rothenburg o/d Tauber in the local museum, I got inspired and made my own "painting" of Rothenburg o/d Tauber with Affinity Photo for iPad. I have blended two photos, the one with the bush and the stars was shot with my Canon 80D and the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 a couple of weeks ago, not far from where I live. The one with the prison tower of Rothenburg (Der Strafturm) I had shot during an overcast day with my iPhone7, when I was visting this awesome medieval town in Germany last summer. Because the light was rather flat, I knew it was a good photo to do some blending with. This was a great opportunity for me to learn a lot of things about blending with Affinity Photo on my iPad Pro. Love this app! Best regards, Wetterhoun
  16. In the AP iPad tutorial for Blend Modes & Blend Ranges, James adds a white balance adjustment to a photo, then changes the adjustment layer's blend mode to soft light. I can reproduce this. I can also change the adjustment's blend mode to luminosity and the result looks the same as the original image, as I expect. The behaviour is different for a curves adjustment layer. I have 2 layers: 2 - Curves layer, blend= normal, I steepened the RGB master curve drastically. 1 - Original photo The result is distorted colours and contrast, because I steepened the curve. My problem is that when I change the blend mode of the curves layer to luminosity, the result doesn't change. I expect the distorted colours to (mostly) disappear and the distorted contrast to be visible. The result also doesn't change in colour blend mode. To achieve what I wanted, I duplicated the photo layer and merged the curves layer down into the top photo, to give these layers: 2 - Photo, with curves layer merged into it. 1 - Original photo. When I change the blend mode of layer 2 to luminosity, the result is what I expect.
  17. Hi there, I am new to Affinity Photo and I cannot find an answer or a video tutorial about blending images together. To be more precise, I want to blend two images (side-by-side) together, one image showing an empty room pre-renovation and one image showing the completed, renovated room. I do not want a straight, hard line in the middle but rather a soft, gradient transition between the two images. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Tom
  18. As demostrated by the image below (three rectangles, two of them blurred, and four pixel brush dots with soft edges) Affinity designer and Affinity photo handle transparency and blending in a mathematically erroneous manner. It is wrong because blended areas are darker than any of the blended colors. Here is a friendly video by MinutePhysics that explains what I think is going on and how to fix it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKnqECcg6Gw
  19. Is there any plan to add the aligning and blending of photo stacks in this? This is something I would need to use the program. Particularly nice if it included tools to adjust resolution, sensitivity, etc. tools that are missing from the aligning/blending features of PhotoShop.
  20. Hi, I'm just trying out Affinity because it looks very nice, but I do have some questions. I'm used to Photoshop so please excuse me trying to get same out of the programs :P ,, Love that you can combine RAW processing and power of retouching tools. * I have some problems getting good quality out of your RAW processor with my 5D Mark III, Nikon D750 and Fuji's. Anyone got "secret Affinity ninja tips" to pull most out of the details and noisereduction and the tools in general? The tools I find on RAW converter feels like a hammer to a glass sometimes. I only have a couple day more on trial and want to see how it performs. * When filling a layer with 50% gray and put it to overlay or soft light, it should not affect brightness/darken the photo, at least from my photoshop experiences. In Affinity the image become darker for every 50% layer in overlay/soft light mode, is there a way around this? * Lets say I want to replace "Blue" channel with "Green" and set top layer to luminosity, how do I do this in Affinity? I found no way to replace one channel with another one, I might be blind tho. I try "Load to Pixel Blue" but I see no changes on composite layer. * I really want curve to affect a selected composite channel in "Channels", lets say I want to adjust the blue channel, how do I do this without making a adjustment layer? In PS you could CMD+M (CTRL+M) on the layer or channel to bring up a curve that will affect only "Blue channel" without making a new layer. Thanks for reading my stupid questions =) Aleksander

    Fun with strokes and blending modes :)
  22. Hi, I really like affinity photo, I find it easier to us then photoshop but there are a few things I can'tseem to figure out. I am learning different techniques for editing black and white photos. It seems via youtube that in photoshop multiple gradients can be added to one mask. If I try to us the gradient tool on a mask on a selection that I have made in affinity I can only us 1 gradient. So if I wanted to have a gradient masking out an adjustment at the bottom and at the top I can't seem to do this, it just resets to the gradient that I just put down and I lose the previous one. If this makes sense to anyone, is there a way to add multiple gradients to 1 mask? cheers, Jason
  23. hi i am new to Afinity photo and want to switch form cs6. i saw some of the viedio's . this question has perhaps been asked before and i do apologise of i am asking the same question. i open an image ready to process and want to bring in another image of mine as a layer so that i can use one of the layer blending modes.. is this possible in Photo?
  24. I'm using pixel layer filled with solid color with "soft light" blending mode to add some coloring. How could I do the same thing using adjustment layer? So I could save it as 3D LUT. I've attached Village.afphoto as an example. Village.afphoto
  25. Is there an equivalent to linear burn amongst the layer blending options? Specifically, I'm looking for something that Wikipedia describes as:
