  1. In photoshop when applying a curves layer there is a hand tool that allows the user to select a point in the image and that point will be represented on the curve so you can adjust based on a particular area of the photo. Does this function exist in Affinity for iPad? I searched and don’t see in the app that I do anything other then creating points on the curve and adjusting.
  2. Help! I created a logo using mismatched font sizes for a custom upper/lower case mix. I converted the text to curves, then manipulated using stroke weight to even out the marks. I was working away on white background and client has approved (and loves) this design based on seeing jpgs. I need to reproduce it as clean vector art and now discovered I'm in a mess of trouble. When I turn the stroke to "none"/invisible, the text bloats out. I'm stuck, any pointers or tips? Many thanks. -Karen
  3. I've been wondering, why there it no option to convert vector brushes to curves? I'm in Designer Persona, brushes supposed to be vector, but the only vector thing about them is that I can edit the trajectory of the brush. Yet, when I wanted to make a 100% vector file out of it, I realised that vector brushes are exported as bitmaps. So, even though the brush tool is labeled as "Vector Brush Tool " it actual isn't. This is all so mixed up - I would expect such behaviour only in Pixel Persona, not in the Designer Persona, where all should be 100% vector graphics. Any tip how to deal with it? Thanks
  4. I am trying to create a inlay template for a CNC router. It is a simple design of a cigar with trailing smoke. The pocket for the template consists of the outline of the design, filled with gray, no stroke thickness. The inlay is comprised of three different wood varieties. When trying to separate the sections of the inlay design into 4 geometric shapes, the fill function respects the curves rather than the individual geometric shapes. Any advice is appreciated.
  5. Transparent glass in minutes. Digitally Fearless Affinity Photo beginner video tutorial on how easy it is to use blend options (blend-if) to make transparent glass. This tutorial also uses curves and liquify. https://youtu.be/PI4pz5RqrWQ
  6. Hi all I am fairly new to affinity designer and this kind of software on general. I drew a shape using the pencil tool and without realizing what expand stroke does I selected it. Is there a way to undo this? I tried selecting all and converting to curves and I tried using the divide option but so far nothing. Thanks!
  7. I've suggested this before and some staff members have said they plan to add this feature, but looking at 1.7's features I thought this would be a good time to bring it up again. Smooth curves are great most of the time, but when you want something to look hand-drawn, you usually need it to be a bit rough. I think many illustrators would benefit from a roughening tool; it would allow illustrators to make non-uniform curves more easily than having to draw each node individually. As it is, it's really hard to produce a line that doesn't look uniform, and a roughening tool to add pseudorandom midpoint displacement would make illustrating much less time-consuming. Last I heard, the plan was to have a brush-type tool that would allow the roughening effect to be "rubbed over" a curve. I think that's is a great idea, but even something as simple as Inkscape's Fractalize feature would be sufficient for many illustrators' purposes.
  8. Hi, I'm placing an SVG file in Designer and try to convert to curves, but the menu item is disabled. This works perfectly with the same file in PagePlus X9. what am I doing wrong? Greetings, Sigurd
  9. Hi, so I have quite a strange issue. I was making a logo for my friends winery. I painted it and then digitalized it so she would get vector to use right. I was just in Designer persona for vectors using brushes from this library. The issue is that when I am in the affinity designer the logo itself looks ready, with transparent background etc. but when I export it to eps, white backgrounds behind the shapes appear. I was doing a little research, ticked all the boxes which was supposed to be ticked nothing helped. Then I tried to put the bad eps file back to Affinity and see what is the problem. What I found out is that some of the curves changed to images. When I tried to delete the "white squares" it will automatically delete part of the logo and it is just such a mess. I was wondering if that is because I though I used vector brushes but it somehow transferred to pixel brushes? The thing is it took me a lots of time to find out how to digitalize the painting itself and it was painted with watercolors which was hard to imitate. I was so happy when I finally found out that I can make it in affinity with the vector brushes but now I cant export it. My friend will use the logo in a big size to be printed on a wood. To understand how it was made maybe it will be clear why this is happening for somebody else. I used curves to make the outlines of all the shapes than filled them with color and then I used a mask layer for the filled ones, where I was using vector brushes to imitate the "texture" so It would not be so flat just with a plain color and look like it was painted. I tried to change the option as well for the eps but it resulted in loosing the strokes sizes. i tried to put it in Illustrator as well but the same thing appearing. If somebody knows what to do with it that would be awesome. UPDATE: I tried to just basic shape and the same mask with brush as I used in the logo and it has the same problem. When I export it and put it back it has the white background and it is rasterized. Second option to export it without rasterizing at all results in that the used watercolor vector brush is just black.. So that means it has problem export the vector brushes like vector and it rasterizes them - which i do not get, when it is a VECTOR brush. Or maybe I am idiot and understand the base of vector brushes badly? Here some pictures so you can see what I meant. This is finished logo for export All the layers are curves in this EPS version put back in Aff - curves became images This is to show you how was it made - basic shape filled with basic color and then mask with just brush stroke to make the texture This is the last option I tried but it resulted in the image below - all the stroke sizes, option, brushes deleted.

  10. Hello, I've created an object using multiple curves and added them in one using the Geometry tool. Now, I would like to transform the shape (for example bend it in the middle), what would be the best way to achieve this? Thanks,

  12. Hi! I wan't to suggest a feature for the Curves adjustment tool. Long story short I've started to shoot color film photography and use affinity to convert the negative film into positive ones for then further process, but in the guide i'm following for converting negatives, the guy uses Photoshop. you drag the diffrent RGB channels before they start clipping, but in affinity its hard to know/see when it starts clipping.. you can eyeball it but you wont get the best results. I plan on doing this process with my film for finer control over the negative converstion alot.. So this little detail to the curves tool would help a ton!! so my suggestion is to add a clip warning in the curves tool ( in RGB mode, clipping for the Master, red, green, and blue channels), much like the clip warning holding down alt in the levels tool Cheers // Peter 😄 (here is the guide im following if anyone is curious, great one! https://www.alexburkephoto.com/blog/2019/10/16/manual-inversion-of-color-negative-film )
  13. I know I've suggested a similar feature, but all this talk of smoothing curves brought this up in my mind; in addition to a tool to smooth a curve, Affinity Designer should also have the opposite. I am of course referring to Midpoint Displacement, which would allow illustrators to make non-uniform curves more easily than having to draw each node individually. Being able to smooth curves is indeed important, but as it is, it's really hard to produce a line that doesn't look uniform, and a roughening tool to add pseudorandom midpoint displacement would make illustrating much less time-consuming.
  14. Hello! Cannot find option to convert text in curves? How I can do it? Thx!
  15. How do I combine these text letters into one shape/object and keep the stroke size intact? I converted the text to curves, I then "add" the shapes. And what happens is that I loose the stroke size, and the inner white areas are filled in. Thank you to anyone for helping solve this issue.
  16. Hello all I could not find anything about my problem so I started a new thread I am new a designer and my problem is as follows when using the vector brush to design a shape I combine 2 so called curves to make a closed shape. I want to fill this shape with a solid color I select the two curves, use merge curves from the menu And done, but not really with 3 shapes this works perfectly , but with the 3th I am left with a white line through the shape or a colored line outside the shape please advice this Beginner , thanks
  17. Hi, I have a simple shape (attached) I'm trying to fill, but despite all the curves being joined it still fills as though they're individual curves. When I joined the last joint it all lit up as yellow, which I assume means it's one joined profile. I also tried several other methods, like drawing each as individual shaped and using 'Join Curves' but not matter what I do I cant get this shape to fill. I'm trying to make the transition from Illustrator to Affinity Designer but problems like this make the transition very difficult. I ended up using my old MAC version of illustrator to do it. Am I missing something? it shouldn't be this difficult. Test.afdesign
  18. Hi there I want to match the color of a subjet to background using curves adjustment layer. I wanna know if it is possible to sample three pixels (darkness pixel, midd tone pixel and lightess pixel) and apply those exactly values to subject layer so I can fix the colors, but using curves adjustment layer
  19. Here's another thing that's keeping me stuck using PS for the near future, as I haven't found a suitable replacement in another application... I require precise adjustments of curves for when I create calibrated contrast correction for alt process photo printing. I regularly print using gum pigment (aka, gum bichromate), kallitype, gumoil and cyanotype techniques. The overwhelming majority of my fine art prints are done this way. To get the best results, it is necessary create compensation curves to correct for the deficiencies of the print process. They are all different, and ideally one would create individual curves for each kind of paper used, as well as for the different processes. I feel confident saying this is the common practice amongst alt process photo printers these days, so I'm certainly not the only one who would benefit. A full description of the process I use can be found here: https://www.freestylephoto.biz/alternative-process/making-digital-negatives Please take special note of Figures H and I in the article because these illustrate exactly what I'm needing to do with curves. What I need is the ability to precisely input the required I/O numbers into the curves dialog. Not only do I not see any way to do this in AP's curves, I don't even see any sort of scale that would clue me in to where I am on the curve. I am able to read gray values the way I need with the eyedropper, but without being able accurately translate those numbers to a curve, I'm stuck with only half the tools I need to do this.
  20. My dad just downloaded the newest version of Photo for Windows. When he tries to add a curves adjustment, the histogram is greyed out and doesn't match the curves in the main histogram panel. Individual color channels show the correct graph (albeit greyed out), but when he chooses the master channel, the graph is wrong. This happens on all new documents. I've attached a screenshot of the curves adjustment panel next to the histogram panel to show the difference.
  21. Hi. Is there a way to edit imported sag files? I made some sine curves in "Grapher" and exportet to PDF. I tried to convert them to curves, which did nothing. Same with SVG files. I want to edit them, so that the sine curves do not overlap the whole graphic. I want to crop it. The vector crop tool is just a rectangle, which does not work for me. You can see in the Screenshot, the yellow curves overlap. I want them to be just inside the speech bubble. Anyone knows how to do this? A just can't use boolean operations like substract, ect. They are greyed out.
  22. Hi, I have a curves layer, I click the select button and my layer disappears? What am I doing wrong?
  23. hello designers , anyone knows how to curve angle (from inside ) like the picture ? thanks
  24. It was brought up in this topic: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/16297-any-way-to-force-everything-to-paths-when-exporting-to-svg/ Essentially, when I export to svg I want everything exported as <path>'s but I get some <rect>'s even though they are displayed as (Curve)'s. Is there a solution for this?
  25. Ok, I get it, each line or curve drawn gets it's own layer. Sometimes this is more of a pain when I am trying to edit. I know you can group the layers, however it still isn't convenient when going from one curve to another. Is there any way at all to put these lines or curves on one layer to make it easier to edit them, like other apps do? I am working in vector here.Forgive me if this question is in FAQs, but I do not have time to go through them all.
