  1. I'm having this recurring issue, where if I clip something to a shape/curve at an angle the original shape/curve fill bleeds into the edge, which is particularly obvious when clipping a light color to a dark color as shown here: Can anybody help? Much appreciated clipping mask error.afdesign
  2. Text frame tool buggy behaviour Affinity Designer v1.8.6, macos Catalina 10.15.7. Reproduce: Set cell stroke > 0 on a tab " " or a space " ". After doing that you can visualize the bug by moving the cursor around the text frame. The cursor will change into an editing caret even if you're far outside the text frame. Also if you click with the selection tool somewhere above and well outside the text frame; it will still be selected. Select the text frame and export "Selection without background". Expected result: a pdf showing only the text in the selected text fr
  3. Hello, I have been wondering and trying to get a constant Blur around the sharp edges of a photo. I found tutorials for Photoshop but I couldn't figure out how to apply that on Affinity Photo. It used to be that the live filter layers could be edited by creating a mask but that worked really bad to not anyway and I am wondering if there is a way to have the outlines of a photo extremely blurred, so that it fades away? Thanks.
  4. Hello there! I have a problem with Marquee tool and tranforms along with importing images. When I select area with the tool (Issue_1) and try to transform it (Issue_2) it gets really blurry. In the last image I did the same but in photoshop. Can I get the same result in Affinity Photo?
  5. How are we able to get this very sharp lines and edges? I have tried expand stroke function but I believe that there is a lot more efficient way to achieve this. Additionally, how are we able to remove or delete excess lines (and intersecting lines) without using the erase tool in the pixel persona? Thanks in advance.😁
  6. Hello: I have found an error that occurs on edges of a brush stroke in pixel persona. What it should be: The stroke has the same colour in the inner part and in the outline. What I get following the steps: The colour of the outline is different from the inner part. The steps are: 1. Change to pixel persona. 2. Use brush tool. 3. Select a pen brush and paint (the second one of the list below). 4. Change the brush to a hard basic one, change hardness to 0% and paint (I´ve used the 8th). Please,
  7. Hey there, I've been having some issues with the "Refine Edges" tool when it comes to selections. After carefully selecting my subject in the picture, I intended to refine my selection when I noticed that as soon as I clicked on the "Refine..." button, the edges of my selection became fuzzy and inaccurate right away, making my overall selection much worse. This happened without even altering the settings or painting with the brush. After spending plenty of time trying to refine the selection with the help of the "foreground" and "background" brushes the result was not much improved, so I
  8. I need to create large documents average 2 x 4 feet at 300 dpi for sign graphics. I place the text and then “find edges” in Photoshop, but my computer died and I want to be able to do this all on my iPad Pro and Dropbox it to my printer. I’ve tried several different ways in Affinity. Can anyone tell me how to do this please? I don’t want my printer to have to use a ton of ink for a graphic that I’m just going to transfer to a sign and then throw away. Would also Love to just use Affinity for everything and skip Photoshop all together if possible but I must be able to do this. Thanks so v
  9. I'm pretty new and am beginning to create artwork for t-shirts. But I'm actually scanning in hand-drawn pen and ink artwork and then cleaning it up in Affinity Photo. I can get rid of the background with the selection tool, but realized today that there are remnants left on the edges and am not sure how to clean this up. I don't need it to be completely crisp and clean. But these light remnants look awful when the artwork is on a colored background. I've attached three screenshots: 1. Edges.jpg shows the "halo" around the edges. I want to eliminate the light color on the outer and in
  10. After developing into photo persona, all the smooth edges go jagged. When I click on the 'un sharp' mask filter the jagged edges smooth out and altering the sliders doesn't affect the edges at all. When I click 'apply' and the application guide slides across then disappears, the jagged edges are still there. The 'un sharp' mask filter has no effect. This has only happened since the latest update. I have just switched the photo back into develop and the jagged edges smoothed out. Then I put it back into the photo persona without doing anything else to it and the jagged edges appeared again. I h
  11. I was recently producing a set of icons and encountered an annoying error when expanding shapes with rounded corners. I've previously posted this on the subreddit, which you can view here – https://www.reddit.com/r/Affinity/comments/6p9fjk/designer_expanded_strokes_are_not_straight/ Essentially when you work at smaller scales and use a border radius of less than 25% (I was using 15% I think) the edges are not perfectly straight as you'd expect. This is more obvious the lower the radius value and the smaller the stroke width. Examples: Before expanding – http
  12. Hi I made element with pen tool that I have used in my design and after I export it I realized that edges are not perfectly clear like they should be. Please see attachment and see how they have some ugly imperfections, and they look like they are pixelated... Can someone tell me why is that happening and how we can change that! Thanks
  13. Hey beebs! I'm using the trial version, tried to use the Gaussian blur but it makes some edges when moved, I guess it made to after I merge the filter. I told my self it would be a rendering thing but it turned to be rendered with the edged as you can see in the photo attached. Please I need help with this error! Cheers!
  14. Why there is edges around like a box in the transparent bg photo edited when exported
  15. Hello, I'm playing with symbols and constraints to make some kind of a framework. Both work well but I'm facing a problem with rounded edges. They are in percent and I need them to be in px, because each time I resize, let's say, a form input, it resizes the rounded edges too. Here is an example of what's happening : http://jmp.sh/G8Mu132 Is there a way to lock the radius to it doesn't adapt to the shape size ? Thanks
  16. Hello, I am on my second day of AD and I'm enjoying it, but I have seem to run into a problem that is really bugging me. I have a vector object (red circle) on a layer with another layer nestled under it that is being used for brushes (white) in Pixel Persona so that the brushes are constrained to that object (red circle) only, and all this is on a white background. There seems to be an issue of the brushes not fully coloring the edges of the red object. You can see a thin red line at the outer perimeter of the red object. It's visible at all distances of zoom. There is also no stroke
  17. Here's a novel way of detecting edges and creating a simple outline layer. Start with an image. Here's one taken in Kathmandu. If you do a 'detect edges' on it (Filters/Detect/Detect Edges), it looks like this: This can result in lots of little bits being selected too. What if you want to select less? One way is to use Levels or Threshold. Another approach is to go via blending. Duplicate layer and set Blend Mode: Hard Mix. This simplifies the picture. Now if you do a detect edges you get a simpler and slightly different set of lines. The resul
  18. Hey, when I open this image in affinity photo (Photo Persona), the edges are pixilated (or stepped, warped). When i zoom in it's back to normal. If I open the image in Develop Persona, it's normal too. why is that? many thanks for your help
  19. Hi there! I need an advice in the following task: I want to have the exact same corner, that I have on the left side of this L-shape, on the inner (right) side of the shape. Can you provide a simple way to achieve this? Cheers, Robin.
  20. Hello Mask was created from black and white image I want to erase white edges by adjusting mask boundaries I want you to tell me a good way Thank you 4691.afphoto
  21. I wanted to enhance dark lines in an architectural image, so needed a layer with only outlines and otherwise transparent. Here's what I did. Duplicate background Detect edges Adjustment layer: Black/white, Merge Layer/Invert Adjustment layer: Levels black 50%, Merge Filters/Colours/Erase White Paper Opacity to suit. (Yes, I could Blend Mode: Darken rather than erase white paper, but having just the lines gives a bit more flexibility). Is there a better way?
  22. (Picture attached) I selected the subject (which is a person), and blurred out the the background. However, when I blur out the background surrounding the subject, another surrounding blurred marks appears on edges of the subject outside of the selection, which I do not like. I want to get rid of these marks around edges in order to make the subject look sharper.
  23. First let me say that I'm really impressed with the progress so far on Affinity Designer. As a long-time user of the now-abandoned Fireworks in conjunction with Illustrator I'm really excited to move over to using this single application once the feature set is close to what I currently need. The only things really missing for me currently are a good contour tool (expand / shrink a shape by a given amount) and animation (which I realise probably isn't on the cards, but I can dream). The bug I'm highlighting here is by no means unique to Designer, as pretty much every vector-based tool whic
  24. I'm finding that I get a 1-pixel edge around some of my vector elements. Here is one example of the problem. I created a triangle with a black fill, the stroke is white and set to "Align Stroke to the Inside". The result is a 1-pixel line around the triangle. All image files export show the black line. I could break this element into two layers, one for the fill and one for the stroke, but should I need to? If I export the image as an EPS and open it in Adobe Illustrator the lines go away. However, this isn't an ideal workflow. Is this a common problem on Windows? Windows 8.1 Affi
  25. Hello I have just purchased AD (windows). I was quite excited. I opened a photoshop PSD file and i zoomed it to 75% and it seems the edges aren't smooth. It's smooth in photoshop with similar zoom. It's smooth when i use 100% but not 75% (in photoshop it's fine in 75%) I have tried this with Grade UI Kit. Zoomed it to 150% and the edges of the UI aren't smooth. I have checked different view modes : Pixel, Pixel Retina, Vector. So i have tested it. It's still edgy. I have attached screenshot of Photoshop image and AD side by side. Also attached Grade UI Kit image in AD.
