  1. Hi I was trying affinity photo for drawing and digital painting. I'm currently using photoshop. but affinity seems really better. i was thinking of switching to AP. but the drawing & painting need some works. I had a few suggestions as well. a few days ago blender updated the grease pencil with nice brushes and tools that would be nice if AF could have them too. please take a look at this part of the video . you can smooth a brushed line with a tool just dragging on it. you can make it thin or thick while keeping smoothness as well. drawing a curved line with some brush would automatically smooth it.
  2. Hello there, I have been experiencing issues with my Paint Brush tool. I purchased Affinity Photo a couple months ago and installed it on both my iMac (late2015) and MacBook Pro (late2012). Everything has been working with no problem until last week when I opened a project on my iMac. I was trying to mask a layer, I press B and the Painting Brush was a SQUARE instead of a CIRCLE. It started acting weird. I don't know why. I don't have that issue on my MacBook. Everything works fine. I tried uninstalled it and installed it back and still had the same issue. Please help. I attached two pictures.

  4. I was wondering if it's possible (or could be possible in an update) to have vector textures applied to vector brushes? What I mean by that is let's say I create an image of dots (all vector) then output it into a vector format could that then be used as the source texture for a vector brush? Would be great as then you would have all vector throughout a file instead of some bitmap and some vector which obviously then limits how large it can be printed at. I totally appreciate the bitmap brushes and what can be done with them but for some things (for example a halftone pattern) it would be great if they could be vector based so that they could then be output at any size when exporting. Many thanks for any input on this and apologies if it's already possible and I'm missing it somewhere as I seem to be doing that a lot lately. Very probably old age starting to set in!

  6. Hey Guys, I'm a fashion design student and I switched from Adobe Illustrator to Affinity Desginer. I don't want to use AD just for drawings but for technical drawings too. My problem: in Illustrator I had brushes for zippers and stitches. Everytime I drew a straight line I could change the brush into a zipper or a stitch but for AD there is nothing like this pre made brushes available (or haven't found it yet). So, is it possible that someone can explain me how I make this brushes in AD or it would be nice if someone do it for me I attached you the ad file with the pre made shapes This is how they look Thank you in advance Fashion Brushes.afdesign
  7. 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.
  8. Hi! I'm new on forums and on the wonderful Affinity universe. I have Affinity Designer on my new iPad and I can't find how to get back to the default brush. I drew with it from the beginning and now I tried some others brush and I can't find it!! Some help, please?
  9. Hi people! I've been playing around with the AP trial and my wacom, and after a long story I realized there is something going on with how brush strokes are rendered in AP. In short, they are a bit coarse. I remember that a year or so ago, I had a similar issue with AD, but since then it's no longer an issue. Strangely I can't find the forum thread I reported it, so maybe I never got around to reporting it? dunno... Here is the AP variant ;-) Bug in Affinity Photo: Aliased brush strokes I do penciling and the AP brush strokes appear somehow too harsh. In manga studio/clip paint, artrage or photoshop it never posed an issue. But in AP It looks starnge and I keep checking if I'm zoomed by some strange factor (eg. 103.333% or 51.27%) and hence the jagged lines. To illustrate my point here are similar strokes painted in Affinity Photo, Affinity Designer and Manga studio (clip paint). Of course manga studio and AD simplify the stroke but the displayed issue is not related. Hardness in all three brushes is maxed out. and zoom level is 100% AP: note that I've minimized spacing but even with a more casual value of 10 the jaggedness would be the same AD: Note that Affinity Designer still has the issue in the brush preview panel (Brush - Selection), but the actual stroke turns out fine. Manga Studio (brush aliasing set to medium): Details comparison: I believe PS to be even smoother, but I haven't got it on my current machine so I can't test it. I hope my point is obvious: the Clip Paint stroke is very smooth all-over, the AD is less smooth, but still smooth enough, but the AP gets too crips at times - appears jagged and... wrong (sorry I can't pinpoint it exactly) Bug in Affinity Designer While rendering the stroke in the artboard is fine nowadays, the stroke preview in the Brush-Selection panel still appears jagged just like AP. As if there is a different anti-aliasing level for the brush preview and the actual stroke! Thoughts In manga studio/clip paint, anti-aliasing strength can be further tweaked per brush. An option like that would be welcome in AD and AP, but this is secondary. hope this report made sense! -Fotis

    Paint Brush Tool Bug - Jagged Line

    Hello, I'm using Affinity Designer for sketching and I noticed that in Pixel Persona using the Paint Brush Tool with an alpha background results in a very "jagged" line (see first pic), doesn't matter which brush I'm using. This is solved by adding a white background pixel layer: since that the lines comes out super smooth and precise (see second pic), even if you delete the white background or you set it to "invisible". Can you solve it? Thanks! (I hope to have expressed myself in a comprehensible way!)
  12. Hi, Designer 1.5.4 on Mac OS X 10.8.5. I drew a simple pen shape (in Draw Persona), and made the stroke a vector brush (ie, Stroke Style button 'Texture Line Style'). How do I now cancel the vector brush and revert the stroke to a plain line stroke? I would've thought: Stroke Palette—>Style—>Click 'Solid Line Style'. But the vector brush stroke stays. Same when I click the Dash Line Style. Same when I adjust the stroke width slider. However: Clicking 'No Line Style' _does_ work, and removes all stroke. But when I then click Solid Line Style (or Dash Style), the vector brush stroke comes back. What am I missing?? thanks in advance, - pbass
  13. I used a number of different style vector brushes when I inked a design in Affinity Designer. When I went to convert the brush strokes to curves, only the solid standard brush strokes were converted and all specialized or non-standard brushes were gone.... I backtracked and selected a single stroke made with a non-standard vector brush and went to convert to curves or expand... and it was grayed out. Is there a way to convert these types of brushes to fills? I need to be able to use my vector line work made in Affinity Designer in other apps as vectors.... Is there a solution to this? Thanks

    Problem with Brush Stroke Ending

    Hello, with Affiny Designer on Ipad pro I have the same old problem than this old topic: When I draw with the brush, the end of the line is not as thin as the begin like how it works with Sketchbook pro or Procreate. Did you know how to make it work ? Thank you very much
  15. Hi, I just found that I cannot use velocity (in dynamic brush settings) as an option to change hue, saturation and luminosity in photo, yet it does in designer. i see it doesn't work in any dynamic setting in Photos.
  16. When using the overlay brush in develop i have to repeatedly go over the area to achieve 100% opacity. I have tried setting brush attributes that work for other brushes but this does not work on the overlay brush, plus I have tried using a tablet & pen and a mouse. Where can I change the attributes for this brush?

    Drawing lines with Shift & click

    If you hold down the Shift key when working with certain tools (such as a brush, eraser, or stamp), you can usually draw straight lines - from the position of the last mouse click to the current mouse position. This does not work in Affinity. Here, the line is not drawn from the LAST mouse click, but from any previous (the penultimate?) mouse click. This is very annoying.
  18. Hi I've downloaded the Trial version (Trial). Can't find the Inpainting Brush icon at all. Working on a jpg (but brush should be at least ghosted there even if no file, I think). As per a forum note I have created New Layer (Pixel), checked for Pixel vs Image. As there is no Brush to chose, I've nothing else I can see to set. Also did restart. Thanks
  19. Hi, I start a new file, but my brush don't work. I checked the color, and my version of Affinity Designer in 1.6.1, latest. really need to know why brush don't work. it's actually happens several times. thank you for helping.

  21. Dear All, Any idea how to restore all deleted brush? HELP :( Regards, Thank you.
  22. hi how can I create a brush stroke that looks like this in this youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7b-70EDYiFQ and use it to outline portraits … I don't have the money to get an art tablet so would be helpful if someone new how to do this on affinity designer
  23. Hello, Long time Illustrator user, trying to switch over to Affinity Designer... One feature I miss is the ability to draw an vector shape (simple or complex) and use it as a brush. A bicycle chain for example. I know there is a raster version of this. This just doesn't seem as good as vectors... Joel Cory
  24. I am new to Affinity so perhaps I am missing something basic here, but every time I select the specific brush I want to use, a default brush replaces it upon my stroke of the pencil. After drawing my line, I have to then go back to the Brushes window and reselect the original brush I intended on using. In other words, from line to line, the default brush takes overs/reverts back. I cannot seem to find any settings whereby I can select and set a default brush. In Adobe Illustrator, the last selected/used brush would also be the brush of your next stroke of the pencil. Why is it different in Affinity? I would like to use my own selected brush consistently. Can some please explain how to do this? Thank you.
  25. Hey, I use a Huion 610pro, with Krita, and I have this same issue, I have tried every free drawing software and even trials for some of the expensive ones, but I get this issue as well, I am hoping that someone can find a fix for this.
