  1. Would love it if the color wheel stopped rotating every time I changed the hue , if it could just be an option where the triangle would just be locked in place that would be fantastic! Really hope to have this on the iPad and the desktop version :)
  2. Hello Affinity Photo development team, I'm a newbie to your program, but have worked as a digital illustrator for several years. Affinity Photo is a really nice program - a nice alternative to Photoshop. It could be a great program for digital illustrators and painters... But it is missing a critical option for higher speed efficiency: a fast color picker option by pressing "Ctrl" or "Alt" This is present in Photoshop, Corel Painter, Krita, OpenCanvas, PaintStorm Studio, etc. It is very important to painters to be able to access the color picker quickly. When you hold down "Ctrl" or "Alt" and click on the color - it color picks it. Then when you let go of the "Ctrl" or "Alt" key, it goes back to the tool you were using before. When you have to switch between brush and color picker, this wastes twice the amount of time. An extra second or fraction of a second may not seem like a lot - but it adds up. A painting that would take 2 hours, takes 4 hours. A piece that would take 1 day, takes 2 days. 1 week turns into 2 weeks, etc. This would be a great addition to Affinity Photo - for all artists. One last idea... Is allowing the user to "fix" the color wheel triangle in a fixed position - instead of having it rotate all around pointing at the chosen color. Why? Because having lightness point up, darkness point down, and saturation point right - is far easier for the brain to process than having the triangle flip all around the wheel... it makes picking specific shades across different colors inconsistent.. harder to match the same saturation position on different colors... because it has changed position. It's easier for the brain to map out the color triangle when it's fixed in one position. White up - black down - and saturation to the right.. Would be far easier to remember for artists - who need consistency, and speed in color picking. Thank you immensely for viewing and considering these ideas!!
  3. Hi all - I'm new to Designer having used Illustrator for many years. I think the bottom-line question I have is: Can I assign a short-cut key to a Studio? I've looked through all the options on the short-cut keys and didn't find that option, but maybe its there and I just can't see it? Here is my problem: I have a dual monitor setup. Designer is open on my second monitor, and I've made a second view of my drawing and placed it on my Surface Pro so I can draw directly on the surface pro (close up) and see the overall image on the larger monitor. I have pulled the color wheel palette down to the Surface Pro in order to have quicker access to the color wheel while drawing. Each time I select a color and then start drawing, the color wheel palette disappears behind the art board on the surface pro. The only way to get the color wheel palette back is to reduce the size of the art board and drag the palette back up. OR short-cut CTRL+SHIFT+H to hide all the studios and then the same thing to call them all back which does put the color wheel palette back on top of my drawing. I thought perhaps it had something to do with the art board on the surface pro being a "second view" so I put that art board back on the large monitor and pulled the original art board down to the surface pro. Same problem. The color wheel palette stays put on the main monitor, but I still have to grab my mouse, select the color, let go of the mouse and then return to draw with my surface pen. I thought maybe "floating" the color wheel palette would help, but it didn't. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
  4. Hi guys, My color wheel is....well... messed up in Designer. It happened after the last update. I closing it, rebooting and reinstalling. No luck so far. Every color wheel, will appear like the image. It happend on 2 different pc's after the update. Hopefully can this be fixed fast, because without being able to pick colors, the software is not usable. Daan
  5. I'm trying the fill tool of Affinity Designer and have trouble understanding which circle in the color wheel circle and triangle correspond to the circles in the fill tool. Also the circle inside the wheel won't move. Anybody knows?
  6. Many time in graphic design we have question which color use. So I think very usefull will be add sugesting color feature. Working example of this is Adobe Kuler website. Why? It is a automatication process of choosing new color. Some people do it by intuition, by other by math. For beginner and I think many professional it can improve workflow create for example few version of web layout or for photographers what background choose to complete picture. More explenation (with great free ebook on using colors with curves) is on Wacom page Wacom Color Master here - ebook titled "Color Theory: Understanding and Mastering Curves" (I'm recommed this lecture) and in basic of colors in video Natalia Taffarel on YouTube. Simply this feature is help to choose colors well working together. What? Type of sugesting colors: Complementary Split Complementary Triad Tetrad (Double Complementary) Analog Accented Analog Custom Options change from sugested colors saturation and brightness to still get harmony of colors. How? 1. Choosing color It's simply choose color and get colors matching to type fx. Triad - that is as Adobe Kuler does on webpage. After that we can add colors as pallete to document / application with option setting global color to better changing them in te future. 2. Finding pallete Detecting pallete used in document. Based on that sugesting which color match to selected type (fx. complementary) or not. On photo is finding which colors you can use to background / text descibes etc. 3. Sets of color in pallete First you create pallete to use in document and make them as set color with global colors. After that you make new using option 1 or option 2 and after that you create new set. Then you can change set using in document. In Affinity Designer for example you can create duplicate project linking to base (when you choose source copy change too) on Artboard. Only difference is that you for Artboard 1 choose set 1, and for Artboard 2 you choose set 2 of colors. On Artboard 1 you have typical version on website layout and on Artboard 2 you have version for morning (news websites use this when some very important person died like president, pope etc.). In Affinity Photo it can be classic set of color for older people more toned and more dynamic for young people. For example photographer makes elegant frame for photo with two version of background fx. making avatars with photo. Sets color in my vision are variation of colors within document pallete. So we have all sets colors in document pallete, but by choosing set we choose which global color are used in document now. For example I create frame and set one set of global colors named "boy" and second set named "girl". By clicking which set I use I get variation using in label design now for boys (set "boys") or girls (set "girls"). Summary I don't know why many application is not doing this on the standard. Choosing right color is a base of graphics and photo editing. It is not look like a very complicated make color wheel and sugesting color on them. For me it could be very usefull option for many of users. If someone feel well choosing color how Affinity application do now then in can simply uncheck / select option "not sugesting". For others sugesting color is automatication color theory without getting a long lecture with math calculation for it.
  7. There is a photoshop plugin called Magic Picker ( http://anastasiy.com/magicpicker). One of its key features is Tone Locking. Basically, it let you change the tone without affecting the relative lighting, as showed in this video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zAfu7xE-Jw ). Super useful in digital painting, photo editing, color palette creation and pretty much all kind of work that need a good color consistency.
  8. For some reason the colors on my color wheel changed and there all dark dull colors how do I get my color wheel to change back?
  9. Playing around in a file pushing what I can do with AD's FXs... I may have broken something... I have a bunch of effects creating a complex geometric form based on simply triangle shapes. The last effect I was applying was an over-all glow. The color wheel is yielding glows with opposite results, as if it's picking up the hue on the opposite side of an axis... He's what I mean: 1. Magenta color works as expected, yields, magenta glow, defining upper pole of "reflected color axis": 2. Purple color DOESN"T work as expected, yields, red glow, symmetrical along the magenta/green axis of the color wheel: 3. Red color DOESN"T work as expected, yields, Purple glow, opposite from the one above, still symmetrical along the magenta/green axis of the color wheel: 4. Cyan color DOESN"T work as expected, yields, Orange glow, still symmetrical along the magenta/green axis of the color wheel: 5. Orange/Yellow color DOESN"T work as expected, yields, Cyan glow, opposite from the one above, still symmetrical along the magenta/green axis of the color wheel: 6. Green color works as expected, yields, Green glow. defining "lower pole" of "reflected color axis":
