  1. Hello, While retouching pictures I like to add a HSL layer on the top in order to completely de-saturate my image, as this helps with the skin retouching process. Currently though there is no way to get the brush to sample the colour of the selected layer I'm working on, instead it will always pickup the de-saturated colour caused by the HSL layer. Even when setting the "picker" tool sample to "Current Layer" this behaviour doesn't change. What I would need is an option to sample colours only from the selected layer rather than all visible layers. I recorded a video to explain this with a practical example - I hope it's clear enough:
  2. Hi The paint brush tool works normally upon starting up Affinity Photo, but after executing actions such as changing the brush, color, or swapping to another tool and then back to the brush, the paint brush tool will often enter a state where it will allow me to draw only straight lines. The mouse itself it still able to move freely, but when attempting to draw even a simple curve, a straight line will be drawn instead, starting from where the mouse initially was and ending at where the mouse stopped. So far, the only solution I have to this is to close the application and start it again, which can be quite troublesome considering this issue happens every 5 to 10 minutes. I've even updated the application to the latest 1.7.2 update, but the same issue still happens.. I'm wondering if anyone is having the same issue? Or if there is any solution to this? Thanks!!
  3. 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.

    Grave Etcher Bug

    I just bought the Grave Etcher brushes and when zoomed in the brushes look terrible. I thought these were vector brushes, so I'm curious why they look like that.
  5. When using the brush tool in Affinity apps I always get very odd brush size increments when using the square bracket ( [ ] ) keys to change the brush size. If I use a 10px brush and use "]" to size it up one increment, it doesn't go to the expected 15px, but rather to 11,5 px. And then, if I press the "[" key to size the brush back down to 10px from 11,5px, it randomly ends up at 9,8px (?). Pressing "]" three times from 9px results in 9px, 10,4px, 11,9px, and 13,7px, instead of the expected 9px, 10px, 15px, and 20px values. I find this a bit strange, as I feel that decimal pixel values for brush sizes make little to no difference, and it's just generally odd that using the square brackets to change brush sizes doesn't just use rounded increments - I hate mentioning Photoshop as a reference example, but if if ain't broke... For instance, using the brackets between the values 1px and 10px should only change the brush size in increments of 1px (1,2,3,4,5px...), anything between 10px and 50px should change in increments of 5px (10, 15, 20, 25, 30px...), anything between 50px and 100px should change in increments of 10px (50, 60, 70, 80, 90px...), anything between 100px and 200px should change in increments of 25px (100, 125, 150, 200px), then 50px, and anything above 300px should change in increments of 100px every time you press the square bracket(s). Is there a significance to these weird, decimal pixel increment values? If so, is there a way to change it back to something more normal/user friendly?
  6. Short things short, I imported abr brushes from photoshop to affinity photo, some of them work all right, some of them have some weird lines and look really unlike they originally do, and some of them are a real mess. For now I'm posting only 1 example with weird lines and brush looking quite different, later on I'll update the post with ones where it's really messed up. Here's a comparison between AP (Affinity Photo) and PS(Photoshop). Abr brush pack is obtainable from here: Deviant art brushes In both scenarios used brush is as 5. As shown in image above.
  7. Is it a bug or intentional? Every time to select a different brush, your storke with gets reset, making it a pain to check the look of individual brushes, as they mess up the object you're trying to apply the brush to. This just in... Helmar
  8. To my knowledge theres no way to see an actual brush cursor in AP other than a representation of the brush style. This is often very difficult to work with, especially when working on small details. This is for two reasons. 1) The brush tip cursor is a dynamically scaling thumbnail of the brush style. For those brushes with unusual shapes, this is problematic as a clear focal point doesn't exist. 2) The brush tip cursor color is matching the currently selected color. In theory this is helpful but often when using color values close in appearance it is virtually impossible to see the brush tip cursor. I understand it has been asked for before but I'd like to put my virtual 2 cents in. Is there any possibility that we will ever get a legit dynamic cursor that is similar to virtually all other image editing programs on the market? It would be immensely helpful. Thank you kindly for your feedback and putting this in as a hot feature update for this weekend (wishful thinking lol).

  10. Without the stabelizer, it seems like brush strokes made with mouse end up being worse than I drew them. When I tested real quick with wacom tablet, it didn't get that issue. I just updated, so it's on the latest version. L4I49.mp4
  11. 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.

    Brush Editing Freeze

    I've been experiencing a number of app freezes on my iMac while creating a custom brush for a project this morning. Creating a new brush is easy, but as soon as I start changing the values of the "Size" and/or "Spacing" (although I haven't even tried changing other options) in the brush editor, I get the spinning rainbow wheel. I hoped that the app was just processing the request to change those values (and taking a bit longer than usual), but it ultimately froze up completely, resulting in me having to Force Quit Photo. Upon reopening, I tried it again, and the same thing happened over and over again. All I created was a standard Round brush, and when trying to change the values in the brush editor, I experienced app freezes every time, without fail. Entering the value is not an issue, but pressing 'tab' to enter the next value section, or simply clicking in the next box with my mouse results in a total freeze.
  13. Hi, Does anyone know of a tutorial around on creating image brushes?... One similar to the preset clothing zipper brush? I.e. as in the image supplied. I've had a hunt around for some help on this but no joy finding anything. Cheers guys, H
  14. I would like Sreif to bring back "real" vector brush from DrawPlus to Affinity. Affinity's vector brush is actually a raster brush stroke with a curve, pseudo vector brush. Why this has been changed when Affinity was developed?
  15. Hello everyone I have a doubt, in the photoshop brush settings there is an option called color dynamics, is there any similar option in Affinity Designer? If so, could you tell me where I find it. Greetings.
  16. I noticed a considerable lag with a custom round brush that utilizes Shape Jitter. Here is a video showing the difference with Shape Jitter turned on and off. It doesn't make a difference what is set to control the jitter (tilt, pressure, angle) The document is letter size (2550x3300) in pixel persona System Specs OS: Mojave 10.14.5 Model: MacBook Pro 15-inch, Mid 2015 Processor: Intel Core i7 2.8 GHz Graphics: AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2 GB Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB Memory: 16 GB 1.7.1 Shape jitter Lag.mov
  17. It's what the topic title says, the further you zoom in, the slower the brushes becomes. If you're zoomed way out brushes perform between well to acceptable, depending on their complexity. As you keep zooming in, the performance drops further and further until they're unusable. This is true even for basic round brushes, but it's more noticeable in complex brushes, such as Frankentoon's. I've also noticed it's worse if you're drawing over vector shapes, which is the whole point of these brushes. See the video for a visual reference. iPad Pro 9.7" with latest version of iOS 12.4 and Affinity Designer 1.7.1. I've tested and this also happens on Windows, the more you zoom the worse the brushes perform. But on Windows, especially on a desktop machine, the sheer processor power masks the issue. Thanks!

  18. Previously reported bug is still not solved in 1.7.2. At a certain time during working, brush drawing reactions change. Instead of drawing as I move my pencil on Wacom drush starts to react as in the attachment below. It takes only first and last point and draws a line between them. Black lines as seen.... blue strokes are done afterwards to show what I was really drawing on my Wacom (Pro Intuous).... Please start solving this issue reported about half a year before Thanks Jindra
  19. My brush (default brush) doesnt blend with itself, if I use the brush outside the radius of a previous stroke it acts as if there was a wall preventing it from layering over (figure 1). If I stay within the border of the previous stroke, it keeps the "ink" from going past its edge/border (figure 2). Is there a way to turn this off, its extremely irritating because I have to make a new layer for each stroke to bypass this. Help!
  20. Aside from having the ability to change your brush view in the Brushes panel from a list to a grid/icons, it would be really nice to be able to rearrange the brush categories. Every time new brushes are added, they are added in a new category at the bottom of the category list, but that category then can't be moved up or down. This removes the ability to (for example) move all of my inking brush categories closer together and all of my painting brush categories together, to keep things tidy and organised. Basically, in the same way you can move brushes up and down in the category list, it would be great to be able to do this with the brush categories themselves too. Not a big deal, but it would be a handy little addition to the brushes panel that would be nice to see in a future update - I also can't imagine it being very difficult to implement something like this.
  21. Hello. Can you guys tell me why those vector brush lines are jagged? No matter what document size, DPI and etc. the problem is still the same. I've also tried to change GPU, open it on different computers and monitors... When zooming in vector lines looks better though... And also while opening on another computer project colors messed up for a while and then fixed itself by opening a project for like a third time or something like that. Am I missing something?
  22. Hi, I want to use an artistic Brush to outline my text Text Strokes using brushes doesn't work Regards.
  23. Basic brushes test. I wanted to obtain the effect of free strokes (marker or ink). Old Wacom intuos tablet. Brushes using the pressure option. As a result, I worked well but most least - (I will prepare a technical description in another thread). The inscription : "Two wheels and I am faster than the wind"
  24. Hello, I´ve been trying to create a noise brush in Affinity Photo for a long time. I don´t know how to do it though. I wanted to get a brush like the one they use in Pokemon for their lineart. (photo) I have no clue how to add that noisy texture and I would be really glad if somebody would help me out. :)
  25. Can there be brush settings available for the overlay brush in the develop persona? I find it difficult to mask accurately with the current limited settings available, the edge aware option is pretty good for mouse work but when I use my wacom I find the lack of pressure related options limiting, like brush size or opacity, etc.
