  1. I was this morning doing some brush tests in beta in pixel persona, because In photo is a really paint brush problem with almost all brushes. I was doing some things and no mention that there was not a normal brush options... Load brush - auto load brush and clean brush... nice things where I could mix color when painting with a brush. But after cleaning up the canvas all these option where go.... Coul'd them get back. See Picture is this a secret option?

    FLOWER POWER Brushes

    Hey folks! I've created a little collection of some flower brushes for AP and AD (Pixel Persona). Hope you like it. You can download the brushes here: FLOWER-POWER-by-MENSCH-MESCH.afbrushes.zip [12.3 MB] Installation: Unzip the downloaded zip-file. Install the FLOWER-POWER-by-MENSCH-MESCH.afbrushes file in your brush panel. Keep on drawin' Norbert
  6. Is there any way I can us the brushes from CraftArtist 2 in Affinity Designer? CraftArtist has tons of really cool image brushes that Designer doesn't include. Thankx
  7. I want to Angled Flat Brush Like This. https://design.tutsplus.com/tutorials/how-to-make-use-and-manipulate-a-calligraphic-brush-in-adobe-illustrator--vector-24561 I have a tribal tattoo or calligraphy work. This feature is absolutely necessary.
  8. I'm trying to look for an angled/tilted brush for hand writing with my pen tablet. I know it sounds extremely simple – it's one of the default brushes on Adobe Illustrator – but I can't seem to find it on Affinity Designer. Everything is rounded... Some taper off a the ends. But none are actually angled. Please help!
  9. Hello, Great work on the new Designer / Photo release @affinity! I have a bug in Designer stable and beta (1.7.1.404), when I try to open / activate the Brushes Panel the app crashes instantaneously. I had this problem earlier too, but was relieved when I saw it fixed in the previous release (1.7.0.367). Now it's back. I had the same problem with Photo too. Now Photo won't launch at all (since the Brush panel is open by default I think, so resetting the Studio does not help). Yes, I tried removing all third party brushes, and as I said previous release worked without any problems. Any help is appreciated. (How do I roll back my active Designer / Photo instance to an earlier version? Simply uninstall and reinstall using the previous installer?) Thanks!
  10. Until recently, I was able to import my abr brushes from the icloud with the import brush option. When I try to do it now, the brush is grayed out. I have tried importing from other sources without any luck. I do not know if this is an ios problem or and affinity problem. I could you some suggestions - thank you.

    Importing Brushes

    So I’ve tried searching the forum and I can’t find anything (at least to the best of my ability) on this, yet I see a lot about this online. I’m trying to import brushes in AP and they show up as a gray file no matter what I do on iPad Pro. It’s driving me crazy. Everything is unzipped and it’s an .abr file. What am I doing wrong?!
  12. Added a PDF tutorial describing some of the methods to create vector brushes from a personal perspective. Some of the techniques are a bit unconventional.. but I hope you find it useful! Created using AD and APu (1.7 beta) Sample pages as below: Create Vector Brush_06.pdf

    Brushes in LAB

    Hi, I'm not sure if it's a bug in Affinity Photo or some problem with brushes. If I make a new document in LAB/16 then more sophisticated brushes (for example Paolo's DAUB PaintBox sets) get cyan overcast that is visible in a studio toolbox and on a canvas. See the attached picture. I'm using iPad Pro 11", 13.3.
  14. When I try to import photoshop, gbr and abr brushes, I see a message that says" brushes imported successfully" in/under ##### but I can't find them anywhere? Can anyone out there steer me to the correct Help topic outlining proper steps for importing abr or gbr brushes?
  15. Every time while drawing with Wacom tablet intuos, Affinity Designer either stops drawing after switching windows either within it or to another app. If it doesn't stop it will just draw only straight lines strictly and wont pick any curved strokes. This is happening in both vector and pixel persona. It is extremely frustrating. I often have to restart it and even then after a while, the same problem occurs again. I have added a video in pixel persona highlighting what I am talking about. It's either a windows 10 problems Or it's an Affinity Designer problem. Kindly help resolve this please, it's really really frustrating. Affinity Designer 2019-06-19 09-49-52.mp4

  17. JR Workflow Bundle: Shortcuts, Macros, HDR Tools & Brushes Hey all, I'm very happy to be posting this collection of tools that I hope will benefit your workflows in Affinity Photo! This toolset contains custom shortcuts, macros and brushes that are designed to enhance and speed up a variety of different workflows, from typical image editing to more complex masking scenarios, archviz scene creation, HDR image mastering/tone mapping and more. The bundle includes each resource in a separate folder and can be downloaded here: https://affin.co/workflow Here is a quick overview of what this pack features: JR Shortcuts Introduces a number of custom keyboard shortcuts designed to speed up image editing workflows, including: Layer manipulation: showing, hiding, rasterising, mask creation, fill layer creation, flipping and flopping, rotating. Layer stack manipulation: moving layers inside/outside of other layers, insertion inside for next added layer (great for clipping adjustment layers/live filter layers). Matting, filling with primary/secondary colours. Flattening the document, placing embedded documents/images. Quickly creating specific adjustment layers and live filter layers including Live Perspective on Ctrl+T. Pixel selections: selecting partially transparent, sampled colours, saving to spare channels. Rotating the canvas in 15 degree increments, resetting the rotation. Toggling various functionality panels e.g. Macro/Library panels, 32-bit Preview panel, Scope panel, Assets panel. Setting fill to 50% grey, resetting fill to black & white. JR Macros Provides a set of macros to speed up common operations that power users might use. These macros make extensive use of the Procedural Texture and Custom Blur filters as well as channel and masking manipulation to simplify what would otherwise be time-consuming actions. The available macros include: Compositing enhancements: shadow/reflection creation, quick tonal matching, easy layer merging and grouping. Automatic mask creation from layer content with adjustable black and white thresholds to tailor the strength of the mask. Useful for Z depth passes (3D renders) and depth maps (dual camera smartphone images). Fast alpha matte creation from white, green, blue and red backgrounds. Great for cutting out stock imagery non-destructively. Mask creation macros: create mask layers from tonal ranges, alpha ranges and colour ranges. Smoothing: Subtle Gaussian smoothing, both cumulative and luminosity-based, to reduce over- sharpening on stock imagery and out-of-camera JPEGs. Various filter masks: create edge detail masks from laplacian, laplacian of gaussian, directional, sobel and prewitt filters, as well as luminosity and LAB lightness selections. Selective sharpening, local contrast, high pass and clarity filters: quickly set up inverted live filters which you can paint onto to reveal their effect. Retouching Setup: set up frequency separation with multiple high pass layers and additional non- destructive retouching options (vibrance, tonal crunch etc). Channels to layers: convert channels to greyscale layers, mask layers and colour data layers. Channel isolation: quickly isolate red, green and blue channel data onto separate pixel layers. Curves with blend modes: quickly add an entire group full of Curves adjustments that use every blend mode available, allowing you to easily experiment with each option. Rasterise and Inpaint Alpha: quickly trims the canvas bounds, creates and grows a selection based on antialiased transparent areas, then inpaints. Great for when you want to quickly fill in alpha areas created by rotating an image (e.g. when you correct the horizon level). Red/Blue Channel Swap: performs a channel swap with additional user options for infrared imagery. 360 seam-aware retouching: HDR to SDR tone mapping, Clarity and Local Contrast. Tonal Painting layer setups: like dodging & burning but non- destructive with more flexibility. Architecture tools including line drawing retouching, 1-bit greyscale setup. Retouching tools including multiple high pass frequency separation and revealing dust spots/imperfections so you can remove them. Astrophotography retouching: detail extraction for deep sky imagery and general enhancement for wide field imagery. Filter Effects (part of JR Macros) Provides a set of macros for creative and functional filter effects. These include: Tonal compression for recovering contrasty images or expanding dynamic range. Technicolor (2-strip, 3-strip) and Infrared emulation
 Infrared channel swapping for actual infrared imagery with various controls to help produce punchy and vibrant results.
 Textured Mist/Cloud effects: combine with masking to add cloud texture to a sky, or give the impression of fog or haze on a landscape.
 Live Solarise: create a non-destructive solarise effect, control its angle and intensity, then use blending options to change the tones in your image.
 Halftone Effects including diagonal lines and continuous dots.
 Light Leaks with controllable positioning on canvas.
 Dissolve noise and diffuse effects to emulate a Dissolve blend mode. Shadow boost filter for softer, more natural shadow detail enhancement. Warm and Cool Tone filters as an alternative to the White Balance adjustment. Workflow Brushes Provides two new brush categories, Masking and Shadows, designed for quick access to suitable brushes for composite and architectural visualisation work. Masking brushes: Soft round brushes at preset sizes (64px, 256px, 1024px) with tight spacing and full flow. Ideal for consistent brush strokes which are required when painting on and off mask layers. Soft and hard edge variants provided. Textural brushes with dynamics to randomise X/Y spacing and rotation. Great for more realistic blending with cut out layers. Shadow brushes: Oval shaped brushes at preset sizes (64px, 128px). Saves having to create custom brushes with modified shape and rotation. Square shadow brushes for diagram and plan work. HDR Authoring (part of JR Macros) Macros to help author HDR (High Dynamic Range) content and tone map it to SDR (Standard Dynamic Range). The tone mapping to SDR and nonlinear to linear transform macros can be used with SDR displays—the other macros however are intended for use with HDR or EDR displays where the extended brightness values can be displayed. The macros include: Tone Map to SDR: performs tone mapping to SDR, providing user options like separate shadow/highlight mapping, brightness/contrast control and local contrast enhancement. Clamp Max HDR Brightness: restricts the headroom (dynamic range) of the HDR document and clamps it to a specified brightness value. Clamp Max HDR Brightness RGB Mix: as above, but with individual control over how the RGB colour channels are clamped. Filter Only HDR Values: filters through only values above SDR, which is useful for visualising the HDR values in a document. HDR Colour Map: visualises the HDR colour contribution and colour crossover with the ability to modify the threshold for the RGB channels separately. Nonlinear to Linear Transform Correction: Affinity Photo will typically use a non-linear view transform even when in a 32-bit linear colour space—this is so the user can see how the image or document will look when exported to a non-linear format like JPEG/TIFF/PNG etc. However, 3D artists will usually want to have a ‘linear’ look to their render so it looks consistent with what they were working on in their 3D software. Simply run this macro to add a Procedural Texture live filter that performs a gamma transform to achieve this. You can then export your renders to TIFF/JPEG etc and have them look correct. Linear to Nonlinear Transform Correction: included as a reversal to the Nonlinear to Linear transform above, applies a non-destructive non-linear gamma transform. ---- I hope you find the above useful, and in case you missed it, here's the download link again! https://affin.co/workflow Any feedback and/or suggestions are always appreciated.

  19. I was in need of lines with dots and triangles for a project. I started creating a few lines and then I encountered a whole bunch of problems with repeating patterns in the Texture Intensity Brushes in the Designer Persona. My triangles got squished, my squares became rectangles and I went into full pitbull mode and did not sleep until I understood what went wrong. These are my work arounds if you’re struggling with squished or otherwise deformed repeating patterns: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/101575-textured-intensity-brushes-and-body-repeat/&tab=comments#comment-545105. With the work arounds in mind I’ve created a set of brushes with repeating patterns that hardly show any deformation*. I was on a roll, so I created 114 in 9 families. I won’t use all, so feel free to use them. They're nice for stamps and borders and such. Enjoy! *) When using these brushes on a tightly curving curve or a sharp corner they of course do deform. Experiment with the brush setting for Corners to find the best solution for your project. The brushes all contain a centred line (in 3 widths, S, M and L) and repeating shapes and stripes above or above and below. The brushes with stuff above the line, but not under are therefore not vertically centred on the stroke. In the stripey families I added 3 lines with a different center point, those are marked with a suffix ‘mid’. They are symmetrical, the 'mid' version is vertically centred on the whole stroke. When you import the brush files you’ll see that a few of the brushes in the round families have different heights from the other brushes. The sources of these brushes have a different width height ratio (see the post linked above for the reason why). I added them to the brush files with a height that by default fits to the brushes with the standard height of 80px.

  20. Hi Affinity By Serif, I'm using Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer. I noticed that once I have imported new brushes, I cannot re-order brush categories or sort the brush categories by name. The most recent imported brushes are at the bottom of the scroll down menu in the brushes panel. Would it be possible to add such an ordering or sorting feature so that users can actually order the brush categories according to their own preferences? < I could not find such a feature/ functionality in Photo or Designer. > Would be nice. With kind regards, Bastiaan

    Brushes Import

    Hello guys, I’m writing because even though I’ve uploaded the new version of Affinity Photo on my IPad (1.7.3), I’m still not able to upload brushes of any kind. What can I do to solve this problem?
  22. I'd like a brush category "Recently used" on top of the list that automatically shows the ten (number could be configurable) most recently used brushes. Would make it much easier to switch between brushes of different categories. Alternatively (or additionally ) a category "Favourites" would be nice, to easily find frequently used brushes.
  23. 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?

  25. I love everything about the vector persona and making a lot of vector illustrations as you can see them on my dribbble account. However, there is just one missing feature for which I'm switching to pixel persona; applying grains, spray textures. Since these pixel brushes are not scalable, I might have to reapply these brushes again on larger formats. I wonder if affinity guys can include a set of vector brushes to apply a nice, subtle textures which cab be scalable. This is one of the features that can set affinity ahead of procreate as well. What do you guys think?
