  1. Hey guys! Today I played around with the displace live filter. It’s a very nice and powerful tool to simulate folds of cloths, but also cracks in walls (like shown in one of the official tutorial videos by Affinity), grainy paper textures and so on … This is my first »tutorial« … ever. If you may call it one. So forgive me for eventual mistakes. Though It’s pretty much self-explanatory and not that hard to follow, I think. ;) Like I captioned the video: basically you want to create a separate image with a greyscale profile (at least that’s how I do it), reduced noise and texture plus a good balance between high, low and mid values. Grey fabrics work best if you want to change the colour afterwards. Maybe this helps, have fun playing around with different backgrounds! ;) Cheers Dennis
  2. The video is dedicated to the topic "How to Transform a Photo into a Brick Wall Portrait" in Affinity Photo and those people, who want to learn this very easily with step by step.
  3. Leave it to me to find the most unpopular posts on here but I believe I just come from different era of photoshop use. So here's the deal: I love to use displacement filters on certain images that really make em pop (google them and be amazed), sure its a dinosaur of a filter but so cool when used right. My findings are that the way Photo does their maps is almost , almost like PS except that I believe there was an error in the output of how this filter should work when compared to PS. Here I've attached a simple image stripping the most basic of anything in real life but perfect to show how displacement is not working right. SO displacement should see that anything dark or moving towards the dark end of greyscale should are "low" and anything that is light or moving towards the bright end of greyscale are "high" and if you look at this example, the PS version the letters dip on the darks and raise on the whites, and the greys in between are shifts towards the other. In Photo there seems to be no low or high, almost as if they are the same. The letters do not shift at all the only areas that move are the greys in between but like I said they don't arrive at a low or high in the shape of the letters. If I were a betting man I would say this could be fixed very easy and maybe its only a few lines of code, but I'm not a programmer so I can't really say. I hope this gets fixed for I really enjoy the way Photo handles this filter.
  4. Hi, Is there a quick way to add a text or image to (a model wearing clothing that has wrinkles) and make it look real? Thanks in advance! Salah
  5. This is one of the problems with the displacement filter. I am trying to see if I can create PS-like displacements playing with the settings until I noticed that after applying the effect that I see onscreen, it gets "trimmed" off around the edges. Almost had it didn't I? Please fix. See vid. Displace is broken_.mov
  6. Just wanting to see if I can do a simple displace effect. I see that doing it the PS way is not going to work. I think the AP way is going to be much sleeker since are given the option to displace from a layer already in the file you're working in. Thanks
