  1. I'm using Affinity Photo and I'd like to stroke a rectangular or circular (or any other selection) shape. I haven't figured out how to do it… I've made the selection with the rectangular marquee tool. In Photoshop, this operation is really easy but I'm stuck in AP. Thanks for your help.
  2. It would make drawing straight lines for design work much easier. PIXEL and BRUSH TOOLS Holding down Shift Key constrains tool to straight vertical and horizontal lines.
  3. I am using Windows 10 version 16299.461 on a Microsoft Surface Pro 4. I am attempting to use the brush tool to paint and every so often press the alt key to temporarily switch to the eye-dropper tool to sample some color and then return to the brush tool by releasing the alt key so that I can continue painting with the newly sampled color. This works correctly while using a mouse but does not work at all with the pen (stylus). When I press the alt key and tap with the pen, the color that is picked up is the color directly underneath the mouse pointer (where the mouse/touchpad was last left resting) rather than where the pen is actually tapping. Therefore, I can not ever sample a color while using the stylus. If I can't figure out how to get this to work with Affinity Photo then there is no point in using Affinity Photo. This is a major part of my workflow and I can not use a mouse, that is far too slow and clumsy. Am I missing something? Is there a setting I need to turn on? Or is this a bug? (Edit) I can't even use the eye-dropper with the pen (stylus). Each time I tap the screen with the pen tip the picked color is the one where I last used my laptop touchpad. I was hoping I could alternate between pressing "I" and then tapping a color with my pen and then pressing "b" to begin brushing; repeating as necessary. But I can't do that. It is as if Affinity Photo is ignorant that I am using a pen.
  4. Currently every time I start a new document I have to set the Pressure Controller for a brush manually. Would like to be able to set it as a default either in the Tools preferences or in Edit > Defaults > Save as Default.
  5. Hey guys......so I was working on my new course...and got the the lesson on making brushes.....sooooo I had to amek some brushes. I made a set of fog/ smoke brushes in raster and a set of silky smooth stroke brushes for your vector applications. I have learned so much from the people on the site....I wanted to give back, so here ya go . I am working on new blog post and some new art using them....so I will keep you in the loop Feedback on them is always appreciated, I love making these sorts of tools Jeremy , www.7thseasonstudios.com Stroke brushes -7th season studios .afbrushes Smoke and fog brushes -7th season studios.afbrushes

    Brush won't reset to default

    I'm trying to just get a basic brush but everything that says 'reset' doesn't rest them (under more button and also under preferences pane)...any other ideas or is this a bug?
  7. I'm brand new to Affinity Design and I'm having teething problems trying to do certain things I'm used to doing in Adobe Illustrator. For example the custom brush, or a brush that is thin in a point at one end only and responds to pen pressure. Also I used to be able to draw this out neatly with a line from the pen tool and then drag the brush from the menu of brushes to instantly change the pen line to this stroke effect. What's the best way to customise this type of brush? (The pictures come from this custom brush tutorial suitable for Adobe Illustrator http://www.bittbox.com/illustrator/illustrator-how-to-make-custom-swooshes-swirls-and-curls ) Another question while on topic, I already have some brush files suitable for illustrator but wont open in Affinity, is there anyway they can work or be converted to work? Thanks
  8. Playing with the brush engine in Photo & Designer and found that Hue / Saturation / Luminance Jitter work differently from other apps… In Affinity the jitter is applied per dab. Compare with Photoshop (and others?) where the jitter is applied per stroke. In my limited experience per stroke is more useful in digital painting for creating subtle variation between painted strokes. Could Affinity have the option to choose how the jitter is applied? Thanks for your consideration.
  9. Hi All! Thank you for having me on the forum. I'm curious if there is a way to make multiple strokes using one brush stroke, that can later be edited individually? For example, I am working on logo where I'm using 6 different colors as if they are all going in the same direction painted by a brush (Please see attached image). Is there any way to make all 6 colors using one brush? For this, I made each curve individually, adjusting each one as needed. Looking for a more efficient way to work in this style. Thanks! Karma
  10. Is there a way to hide the outlined brush tip? I guess some people might like it, but for me it is totally disturbing, especially with complex brushes. The outline hides faint brushstrokes and makes it very hard to judge if they are correct, especially with large brushes, low opacity and short strokes. I prefer just a dot, or nothing, as I see the tip of the Wacom pen anyway.
  11. Hi Affinity Team, Please fix the issue with the pressure brush. This is the 5th time it crashes whenever I use the brush with the pressure activated. The crash does not happen immediately but it crashes after some time. Im using a late 2015 iMac 5K, 3.2 GHz Intel Core i5, 24 GB 1867 MHz DDR3, AMD Radeon R9 M390 2048 MB.
  12. I am experiencing an issue with AD 1.6.1. I have used a DAUB vector brush to create a sketchy effect on a fill on this logo. I am having problems where the stroke caps and joins are distorting when enlarged over a certain size (est 75mm in width) and rasterised, either directly in the document or when exporting in any format. I understand that these brush sets contain raster elements, therefore must be rasterised on export, but why this is skewing the joins and caps i cannot explain. Weirdly, i have also noticed that the caps and joins change in appearance when i zoom in on the paths, not even resize, just zoom in, they look completely different. Is this a bug with the brush? Am i doing something wrong with my Nodes? Please help!
  13. If I use a gradient swatch to paint with using the paintbrush in Draw Persona, how do I edit the gradient to change up the colors?
  14. Hello everyone, I'm trying to create some custom brushes to use when painting over masking layers, but I cannot achieve my desired result. This is the new Image Brush I made (white on transparent background): The layer setup: What I want to use this for is adding/subtracting from a mask, but the transparency is not ignored in the process, resulting in something like this when adding to the mask: As you can see the transparency acts on the mask layer as an eraser (I'm using the pixel brush), and the only thing that I want to do and can do is removing from the mask while holding down CTRL (to erase). Is there a setting, or color combination in the brush image that I can use in order to have the desired effect of only adding or subtracting the brush shape, ignoring the rest of the image? Thanks in advance for any help! Cheers

    Harsh lines using brush tool

    Hi guys can someone tell me if I am doing something wrong? When I use the brush tool to edit I get harsh lines and I can't figure out if this has something to do with my brush setting or something else. I took a screenshot of what trying to describe. Adding I found a work-a-round but it's not ideal. I don't see this ugly line when I hold the continuous brush/re-paint back to the hidden pixel. However, the moment I let the mouse go then I get the line back.
  16. Hello!! I am starting with Affinity with the 10 days trial, so far I think its a great software! I use a HUION USB PEN TABLET 420, it works very well, but if im using some tool, like the brush, and I lift up the pen, and after a few seconds I put it on the tablet again, Affinity automatically switches the tool to the eraser without pressing any key or button. I tried to disable the buttons on the pen, but still it switches from the current tool to the eraser every time I lift up the pen and put it down again. Hope this helps to improve the software! :D Cygemth.

    Brush import issues

    I just purchased Affinity Photo and am seeing issues already. Brush import is not working properly/well. 1) Brush shape in AP ties to brush roundness in PS. Brushes imported into AP with a certain roundness retain the setting value under the Shape parameter. However the Shape parameter in AP does nothing. You can move the Shape setting from left to right and roundness/shape of the brush is unaffected. I have a cloud brush (attached) with a roundness of 36, it looks properly squashed in PS, it is unaffected and full size in AP. Assigning the value upon import indicates that the Shape parameter should do what the Roundness parameter does (otherwise why import the value?) but the FUNCTION of the Shape parameter is not the same as the roundness function in PS. 2) PS has functionality where a control like Rotation is set with a value of 0 for control based upon direction but it still functions (as long as some control type is assigned to the control). In AP, the value imports as 0, but a zero value shuts off the dynamic even if a control type is assigned. In order to get proper behavior, export should not disable the dynamic if a control type is assigned but the control value is 0, and should only disable the control if the control type is None. 3) Resetting the brush values doesn't set them back to original imported default values. 4) Import of the "spacing" value needs to be adjusted (see attached PSD) to achieve similar results to a brush's performance in photoshop, or maybe this is caused by #5: 5) Flip X jitter and Flip X jitter aren't present in AP. There is no substitute that I can see in any of the brush settings that will give the same effect. Brushes with this characteristic checked in PS behave very differently in AP. This kind of randomness is essential in order for a foliage brush or a cloud brush to look natural by avoiding repetition. (See cookie-cutter effect in attached photoshop file.) I attached brush files (imported and original) and a PSD file showing AP behavior vs PS behavior. The differences are night and day and the brush import is not usable in its current state. In the PSD, the AP brush behavior is above and the PS behavior is below. BrushBug.psd Bug Brushes.afbrushes OneCloudBrush.abr

    Brush in the restore tool

    Hello I can't find a topic about my problem so I decided to open one. I created a water mark for my pictures and it works well with the brush tool. Now my problem is if I am close the brush tool to continue work at the picture and open the restore tool I get the restore tool and my water mark also as brush. So I can not restore at the moment. Above the Picture in Affinity Photo you can adjust your specific tool. In the restore tool there is a button called "More" With a click on it a new window is open and my water mark is deposited as brush but it is not able for me to delete it to get back the good old restore tool. Deinstalling and reinstalling Affinity also doesn't work Since the last Update I think I have that Problem. Can anybody help me please? Alex

    Brush Tool

    I tried to change the stroke to be pointed at the both ends. Applying all kinds of brushes provided that look thin at the start and the end doesn't show the effect desired, only change the stroke thickness ( see attached pic). How to get this function to work?
  21. Hey! So I had this specific issue where I want to fast and easy change brush size without accidentally affecting brush hardness while using the shortcut alt+R click+L click. Right now this command both affects brush size and brush hardness depending on if you move the mouse/tablet pen horizontally (size) or vertically (hardness). I would like to be able to disable just the vertical command so I can keep the brush hardness the way I originally customized when creating them while keeping the horizontal functionality. Is this possible to do, or is this option not available as of now? Edit: On another note, is there a fast way to switch from brush to brush in the form of a quick pop-up brush toolbox like how you do it in Photoshop when right clicking? If not, are there other shortcuts available in Affinity Photo? Thanks.
  22. Hi all This is a new small sample set of brushes I have been working on for several months with base textures, seamless patterns with mixed vector/bitmap nozzles. It is a larger single set containing 30 raster brushes I have changed the numeric s slightly on the brush reference sheet (it's just a number!) Sample sheet is attached enjoy!

  23. I am trying to create a brush with my watermark to add to photos. When I previously created it in Photoshop, the brush size was 589 px, which is typically the size I need the brush for most of my photos. When I create the brush in affinity photo (by creating a png file of my watermark, and then creating a new intensity brush from the dropdown menu in the brushes panel, the brush is created as size 64 px. It doesn't matter how big my original file is. I have tried making the png bigger as well. It always ends up size 64 px. Is there a way to control the pixel size of the created brush? Thank you!
  24. Using a Wacom Intuos. When I use pressure settings for flow, the brush will render correctly over unfilled pixels, but previously colored pixels will fill erratically, resulting in jagged edges and sub-layer bleedthrough. This makes rendering and building up values absolutely impossible. New to Affinity photo so this may be a settings issue, but I lowered DPI and fairly certain it's not hardware related. I rely on this for income so please help if you can point me in the right direction.

    Pressure Sensitivity Accuracy.

    Hey guys. Newbie here! So in a nutshell, I'm an illustrator who primarily draws in Photoshop using a graphics tablet. I've recently purchased both Affinity Designer & Photo in hopes to totally ditch the Adobe subscription thing. Working in the way that I do, once downloaded I immediately selected the Affinity brush tool (not the vector brush) in both apps to see how it performs, but for some reason my pressure sensitivity is not accurate as it should be. I'm experiencing this in both applications, but not in Photoshop, Clip Studio Paint, or Sketchbook Pro. What's shown in the attached images is all strokes that were made quickly using a stable pressure. As you can see the strokes in Photoshop are all very uniform and natural looking, but for some reason in Affinity apps my stroke pressure does not register accurately which makes it incredibly difficult to draw 'neatly'. Sometimes when I press very hard the strokes are incredibly thin, but then suddenly bulk up which causes the strokes to look blobby - the scribbles I made were done with the same amount of pressure throughout but for some reason they seem to start very thin, even with a decent amount of pressure, and then suddenly thicken without me even pressing harder. I'm working on an iMac. I've look up a bunch of tutorials to make sure that I'm using the brushes properly, but they don't seem to play well. Is it just me, or is this a known issue? In the last attached image some of the strokes didn't even register at all like the cross bar of the "F" in "of".
