  1. I'm having a strange export issue. The polygon and its border look perfect in Designer, but when I export to PNG, the corner gets messed up. I've tried changing the corner's angle, but since I can't duplicate the effect in Designer, I never know if I fixed it or not and need to re-export and look at the PNG to see if anything changed. Left: Designer, Right: Exported PNG
  2. I want to take an image file and place it on a colored background. Prior to Affinity I had Adobe Photoshop but I can't seem to find a correlating tool to do this. Adobe merely ad a "resize canvas" option where one could anchor the image and choose a background while resizing. The resize canvas on Affinity is quite useful but not for my purpose. I am not sure which tutorial to watch.
  3. Hello, I have noticed a problem in Affinity Designer where layers will suddenly have a 1-2 pixel border that shares a color with the next lower layer. It almost looks like aliasing in a raster layer, however I am seeing this problem with vector layers. The "border" is not a real border that would be added with the border menu (I have that set to no border), and it changes thickness when zooming. It is most apparent when zooming out. This occurred for me after some extensive use of the color picker tool. Details: Are you using the latest release version? Yes, according to the pinned forum post that tells how to check. 1.7.1.404. Can you reproduce it? This happens occasionally, seemingly only if I work on projects for a long time and change the colors frequently. When this happened I was using the Color Picker Tool for trial-and-error color testing, and when I finally found colors that I deemed satisfactory, this problem started. It almost looks like aliasing, but this is a vector project. It should be visible in the project I attached. The screenshots give an idea of what to look for. Does it happen for a new document? If not do you have a document you can share that shows the problem? This happens seemingly at random. I haven't noticed a pattern yet. If I copy and paste affected layers into a new document, sometimes the problem carries over, and sometimes it does not. The document setup seems to make no difference. I included an example project file that on my computer definitely has the issue, as well as screenshots. My usual non-print document settings (including for this one) are 72 DPI and RGB-8. If I start a completely unrelated project, the problem does not occur. What is your operating system and version? Windows 10 Version 17763.615 GPU is an AMD Radeon Vega FE. CPU is an AMD Ryzen 1700x. Monitor is an HP Pavilion 22cwa. 16GB RAM. What happened for you (and what you expected to happen) Small 1-2 pixel borders appeared around layers that reflect the colors of the layers underneath. These borders grow thicker as you zoom out, and thinner as you zoom in, but they are always there. Normally, this would not happen, and shapes that have the same color will look like they are one piece, and shapes that are different colors will not have traces of each other. I am certain that for the black shape in the example project, the shapes meet exactly. I made them simply by copying layers and deleting unrelated nodes. For the tan layers in the example project, the colors are identical. They should look as if they are one piece. Provide a recipe for creating the problem (step-by-step what you did). I was just using the color picker tool somewhat frequently to try out different color combinations on different layers. After a while this problem appeared and could not be reverted. None of the layers are supposed to have borders of any kind. The border option is set to none. Any unusual hardware (like tablets or external monitors or drives that may affect things) or relevant other applications like font managers or display managers. No, but I listed my GPU and CPU above just in case. This is a desktop PC (not a laptop). Did this same thing used to work and if so have you changed anything recently? I have experienced this issue before seemingly at random on earlier releases of Windows 10. I've been using Affinity Designer since January. Nothing about my PC has changed, software or hardware, for at least a few weeks. I have seen threads about a similar issue in Affinity Photo (not Designer), however it seems as though the problem could not be reproduced. Hopefully my attachments will help. Older threads of a very similar-looking issue in Affinity Photo: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/83340-all-images-get-a-visible-border-when-at-certain-zoom-levels/ https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/87790-all-images-get-a-transparent-border/ ProblemExample.afdesign
  4. An image is worth 1000 words, the first image is the cut out I made and second image is the cut out placed in another image... but with a border I do not want. If any more context is needed, please let me know! Any help? Thanks catonjam.afphoto
  5. In Photoshop, Ctrl-Alt-C brings up the Canvas Size dialog box. It works the same way in Photo. However, in PS, first there is a "Relative" check box that you can check (it remains checked) and second the program remembers from which point you want to change the Canvas size: I set it so that it will be changed from the center point, and it doesn't move. In Photo, it moves back to top left whenever you open the Canvas Size dialog box. Furthermore, in PS, there is a drop-down local menu to choose the color of the Canvas extension area: I set this to black and the software also remembers it. Therefore, when I call up this dialog box using Ctrl-Alt-C, I find all my settings again and only have to type in the size (thickness) of my black border, and hit Return. In Photo, first there is no "Relative" check box, there is no menu to select the color of the Canvas extension area, and then the program does not remember from which point I want to extend the size of the Canvas and moves back to its own default. I was wondering whether there is something I'm not doing right, or if it is also feasible in Photo but just not the same way... It is quite important for me as I usually do a thin black border around my photos... therefore, many thanks in advance for any tips!
  6. All i want do is add a border to an image for a youtube video but everytime i try it makes my image the background image and the rectangle i use for my image remains in the foreground blocking what I would like to be seen. I dont understand what im doing wrong
  7. We are often working with many various photos in a specific way. Often performed operation, after the whole process of photo editing is adding border. Let's say, that border have to be 40px at each direction for 800px image. I have created a macro with using FX Outline option - maybe there are better ways to do it? Change Document properties - uncheck the Transparent background in the Document menu. Enable the Outline FX effect. Set radius to some pixel value... and this it's strange, because it must be 39px to get proper width of 880px for bordered image from 800px image. 40px is resulting in 882px image. Why is that? Set FX Outline colour to white. Clip Canvas. Is there an option to change a default colour of the document background, or it must be white? White is good for us for now, but it's good to know Next question is a little different, but also is close to our specific workflow with these photos. Is there a way to clip a photo as described below? We have a product photo with the white(or other), solid background. We choose some option to crop the image to content with ignoring pixels of the the background. Result is: Cropped solid background to the pixels of the product - It detects solid colour around the different pixels of the product accumulated at the middle of the document. For example, we have such option in Gimp: Image > Crop to Content.
  8. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher 1.7.0.257. I'm not sure if this is a feature or a bug so I'll ask the question. When I have a cell or a number of cells in a table selected, I can change the border - of whichever border-selection is currently selected in the Table panel - of those cells via the Decorations tab of the Character panel. Is this something that was deliberate? It's a kind-of-nice short-cut if I don't have the Tables panel open - even though I can't choose which border selection I want from the Character panel - but I don't know if having it at the Character level is appropriate. I'm not sure where would be a better place, it just seems a bit odd.
  9. You’re propose your app as a tool for work in vector. This is not true. You can add a lot of elements easily, work with color, blur etc. But once you need to scale the vector object you’ve created YOU SHOULD MANNUALLY GO TO EACH OBJECT AND SET “SCALE WITH OBJECT” Could you please set as priority ticket for your developers add a SCALE FUNCTION when you can just click on the object, click in Edit Menu “scale”, set ratio or percentage and you will get scaled option of your image. In addition your export feature need so much power from my Macbook that comparing it to the Illustrator. I’d better avoid all of those coll things you’re proposing just to get scalable and adopted vector file.
  10. Can anybody tell me how to add a border to a photo in Affinity Photo? In Photoshop it's simply:- Select / All Edit / Stroke
  11. Hey everyone! This is the first time I'm using the Affinity forum so I apologise if I have used it incorrectly. I have made a vector shape with a 20pt border around the edge. Is there a way to expand the vector to include the 20pt border? Thanks in advance, Matt
  12. Hey Affinity Experts, I have been trying to erase a top border on two combined custom shapes. One shape is dark suit jacket while the other shape is a white shirt shape on top of black suit jacket shape. My problem is that when I layer the shapes a very thin black outline remains from black shape. See example. How can I remove this black top outline? Do I have to erase it or is there a way to layer the shapes that causes the black border line to disappear at overlap. Thanks!

    free experimental brushes

    been playing around this afternoon with some different methods of creating custom brushes. Thought I'd share some of the results. this small group of 5 brushes will work in both affinity photo and Designer (Pixel Persona) There are a couple that might make interesting borders, and some that just make interesting grunge or painterly effects experimental Brushes.afbrushes
  15. Hi guys, Can Affinity create wave like borders, or other styles of borders automatically? I attached an example, the bottom border is what I'm talking about. Thanks
  16. I'm having a problem with Photo adding a white border when I batch-process converting Affinity files to JPG. This doesn't happen when I export individual files using the file menu. Am I missing a setting in the batch job dialogue that would stop this happening?
  17. Hello I use A.Designer Trial. I like the artboard, but I have problem with it when exporting. I have created UI in Inkscape, then I open the document in Designer and create artboard for export. This is how my ab(artboard) are organized: - main ab for whole document - inside main ab I have for each icon, button or graphic element individual ab for example - main document (artboard) |- layer1 |- - ab1 (artboard) |- layer2 |- - ab2 (artboard) etc.. problem is, when I switch to ExportPersona I can see the some frames have bigger size then ab. For example I have ab with 40x40 but frame have 41x40. I discover every this problem appear only when ab have position xx,45 or xx,98 in px. In ExportPersona the xx,xx is changed in to xx for example from 122,45 is changed to 123 or 122. Same for the size, if some ab have 80,45x80,61 then frame is rounded in to 81,81 size. It is looks like frames have own coordinate system which are connect to pixels? I want export svg graphics and I think exporting icon with size 45,499x48,788 is ok, there is no need to have frames tied in to pixels. Another strange problem is, when I switch document units from pixel to points with 2precision, frames coordinates are exact as ab, but it still create "one pixel" bigger frames as ab. Exported graphics have same size as frames. Is it bug or I am doing something wrong? Is there some option to have frames exact coordinates and size as artboard?
  18. Hi guys. I create a shape by Pen tool. Is there a way to make a dotted /dashed line around it? Thanks
  19. Maybe I am blind and I totally missed it somehow, but I'm not able to set the width of the stroke (of a rectangle for example) to 1px. Or is this not (yet, hopefully) implemented? Thanks in advance guys! :)
  20. Hi, When I resize a image I get a white border at the left side, but when I export the result has no border. When I do the same in Photoshop or Paintshop Pro 2018 they look perfect. Also the crop tool doesn't snap to the border of the document, this is a even bigger error! Regards, David
  21. Hey everyone! This happens in both Photo and Designer. Full screen mode needs to be used for this issue to show up. I get a dark border on top of the document view when doing the following: - Opening at least two documents so that tabs show up - Closing those documents - There should be a dark border where the tabs have been Creating a new document and closing it does not get rid of this issue. However, opening just one file and closing it does. So does quitting and restarting the application. Software used: Mac OS 10.11.3 Affinity Photo 1.6.6 Affinity Designer 1.6.0 Best wishes, Shu
  22. Using Designer 1.6, I have a rectangular shape with a non-uniform (gradient) fill and some text inside, represented by shape #1 above (without the text, of course). I would like to apply a transparency effect where the edges of the shape fade off into being completely transparent. In order to try and describe what I am trying to do here, I made shape #2. I want the inner edge of the black border to be completely opaque with whatever is directly under it, the outer edge be completely transparent, and a gradient transition fill in between. In shape #3, I tried to use the Outline layer effect, as shown here: ...and kind of got what I am trying to do, but not quite. Maybe I need to use a duplicate layer and use it to mask out the border of the original shape? I have a feeling I am really close with this, but missing some step somewhere.
  23. Hi There, Is there a way to remove a border or stroke of a shape in a selected location? For example, I want to remove the stroke on top or top border of a rectangle. If not removed change the color. Thanks!

  25. If you hit the pulldown switch of the rubber size, you need to be quit left of the downarrow-sign. If you are more than the middle on the right, the pulldown size select closes immediately. If you reach the borders at the right and at the bottom of a picture by using the rubber, the rubbercircle disappears behind the border of the picture and become an arrow, but if you try to touch the scrollarea, the rubbercircle appears again. Best Regards
