  1. Hello, I am unable to preserve an opacity gradient (transparency tool in designer) applied at the group level when exporting to svg format. With option "rasterize unsupported properties", I get a rasterize image With option "rasterize nothing", the gradient disappear Is it a some workaround ? Thanks for your help. gradient.afdesign
  2. Hey guys, why doesn't anyone talk about the lost adjustment presets after the update? I can't be the only one missing all his presets, can I? Since the update about two weeks ago I have had massive problems recovering any of my adjustment presets. (Screenshot of the palette is attached in case you're wondering what the hell I'm talking about. Yes, I opened a photo and clicked on the labels – they're empty.) Under the section LUT alone there were 35 presets that I personally saved and collected over months and years! I already had similar experiences with older beta versions of the apps, where certain folders could be copied so that all user-defined settings are available again. But it doesn't seem to work this time. To be honest, this situation makes me more and more disgruntled. I wonder why this palette, which was included in the programs from the beginning, has no export function yet. Damn, even the crop tool has a function for exporting defined ratios. Even later implemented functions like macros or assets can be exported! Why not curve or white-balance presets?! Now excuse my little psych-out. Fortunately I have a Time Machine Backup, but even if I recover the data from it, I can only work with the penultimate officially released version – but that's obviously not a solution, who wants to work with an outdated version if there's a shiny new release with better features? This btw. isn't just related to Photo, but also Designer. And it's not only on Mac, but also on Windows – I checked. So if anyone has a solution to this problem, please - please- share it with the community! Or just let me know if anyone else has this problem. Cheers MrDoodlezz
  3. Hi all. I've spent way more time than I should have trying to get a gradient fill to go vertically in Designer. I don't think I've ever before seen a graphics application that offered a gradient fill but lacked any way to control its angle. Even if there is a method buried somewhere in this application, it may as well not exist. It needs to be in the gradient-fill controls. Baffling.
  4. Not sure it's a bug but here's what I tried : Open AD 1.7.0.364 bêta on Windows 10 and choose the sample "A" by Nora Toth Explore the layers and select the 1st Ellipse under A > Group > Letter A Try to add noise in the 2 points gradient: when I try it, the noise is not added and if I move the color on the palette to another one, the noise cursor is reset to none (same if the noise is existent > reset to initial value, impossible to remove it). Hope it helps, Best regards, Michel
  5. The gradient tool has gradually been improving. Thanks, folks! One last tweak suggested. Currently: Select gradient tool on left. Draw gradient. Default is white to grey. Ends up with grey node larger than white node as it has the focus. Just fine. Now want to change the grey colour, so select colour patch on context toolbar at top. I arrive at the Gradient tab. However, the left-hand white node is selected in the Gradient dialogue. So to edit the grey node, I have to re-select the right node. If this is not noticed, confusion results. If, however, I select the Colour tab, I can change the grey directly. Whether you go to the Gradient or Colour tab first is really a matter of policy. I'd be happy with either (though prefer Colour as it saves a little time and thinking). What really needs to be changed is that the node selected in the Gradient tab when you arrive there should be the same as the selected node in the drawn gradient.
  6. I've downloaded Affinity Designer Trial to see if I can get it to export an SVG of a purely vector design. For this project, it's incredibly important that the final product be an SVG that has zero rasterized elements in there so it can scale to multiple screen resolutions. The problem is that, while I've got the design looking good (well, as good as I can get it, being a programmer and not a designer!), when I export to SVG **without rasterizing unsupported effects** -- which I thought SVG supported shadows and gradients on a transparent background, right? -- the file has neither of those. I've attached the afdesign doc and a resulting SVG. Tried reading said SVG in Chrome and Firefox as well as Apple's Quick Look (which I believe uses Preview's built in magic magicness) and the shapes and colors are fine, just no drop shadow, no gradient, no transparency. Input appreciated. Thanks all. SVG Looks like this in quicklook: Postal Logo (Affinity) 2.svg Postal Logo 2.afdesign
  7. Hello, I got a small problem. Also have I never used any kind of image editing software before. That's why I might need a while to understand. If I don't express myself well enough please tell me. I'll try again. I added a gradient layer in photo persona. Like the on in the picture down below. When I was kind of done I clicked somewhere else. Afterwards I thought about changing it up again. Just a little bit. But I couldn't get in there again. Everytime it added a completely new gradient layer. But actually I just wanted to change the colors a little bit. Can anyone of you tell me a way to change the gradient pixel layer after I was done editing?
  8. Using Affinity Publisher, I am having difficulty in applying a blended/graduated transparency effect to a color photograph. I'm trying to have a transparency blend to a white area on the bottom, but it keeps making my color photo become black & white. I'm using the graduated tool setting both colors to white/#ffffff and setting one end at 100% and the other at 0%. Can someone help?
  9. Hey guys, I am a relatively inexperienced user and am looking for some advice on how to achieve an effect. So I want to create a gradient overlay from the top of my document to the bottom to affect several layers however these layers need to be at different depths. The couple of ways I know of to do this don't really feel like they fit: 1. Using the Gradient Overlay effect Recreating the effect each time I want to apply it to a new object is obviously super time consuming Gradient is scaled based on the size of the object where I want it to apply across the whole document. 2. Creating a Gradient Object and using blending to apply it to other layers Doesn't respect which layers it should be applied to so can't render the visual hierarchy in the order that I want for overlapping elements. 3. Applying the gradient as a mask layer Can't move elements without repositioning the mask layer. Duplicating the mask layer for each element I want this effect applied to seems inefficient. Below is an example of the kind of effect I want to achieve (Although I will want more directly overlapping elements that intersect each other): Does anyone have any ideas on the best way to achieve this?
  10. Hi there! I need to draw a walnut in black and white for a tattoo however i dont know the best way to do the shading as it has some very strange shapes, is it possible to have more than one gradient in a shape or should i do individual shapes, any advice would be much appreciated, Thanks!!!
  11. Can anyone give me some links to videos on fading images to transparency? I found one a while ago which helped me out, but it seems to have disappeared. Does anyone have a link to it? I recall the image being manipulated was in an underground garage. My issue is, I can create a box and try to set up the gradient, but on the image I get clear lines where the gradient box starts and finishes. How do I get this smooth? And where do I place the box in the layers?

    Hi, I created this image in Affinity Designer 1.5.6.135. on PC. Screenshot below: But when I print it, the mask layer and gradients are distorted: Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Sam
  13. This should be simple but I can't figure it out. After I make some edits using the gradient tool I move on. a little later in the editing process, I decided I want to come back to the grdient and change the direction of the gradient or move a node, however, I'm unable to make the gradient tools stuff show up again. What am I doing wrong?
  14. Good Morning, I have been looking for a way to create a Gaussian blur gradient. That is to say slightly blurred on one end of an object and progressively becoming more blurred toward the other end of the object. Specifically a shadow of an object (pole) composted into a photo. I have been told that there is a way to accomplish this in PhotoShop using a channel selection and applying a gradient to the selection. Is this possible with Affinity Photo? If so how. Thank you. Paul, Ocala, Florida, USA
  15. how do you fill a shape with a gradient that already has been used in another shape? I'm trying to use the same gradient already being used, but cannot figure out how to "transfer" the same fill to another object??
  16. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher 1.7.0.227. I'm not sure if this behaviour is correct or not - so I'm not sure if it's a bug or not - but I'll try and explain what's happening. I can create some Artistic Text and use the Transparency Tool to give it a transparent gradient. All well and good. Then I can create another bit of Artistic Text elsewhere the page. However, the transparency gradient of the first bit of text has been copied over to the new text but in exactly the same place as it is in the first text, which means that the transparency gradient no longer covers the second text. Is this expected behaviour? It took me a while to figure out what was happening when I first saw this. I've attached a GIF to show what I mean.
  17. load an image new layer gradient tool, draw a gradient move tool, select gradient layer and resize to smaller than main image draw another gradient on resized layer -- outline of layer in blue seems to be same size as original image, though reduced image layer appears ok. Repeat 4 and 5 Once this resulted in a whole system (win10) crash. Another time AP just bugged out and vanished. Some kind of memory leak or recursive spiral? Couple of processes fighting one another?
  18. Hi guys, I am new here in our 4rum but I have used AD for more than 3 years. This is an amazing tool which made me quit all Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I believe AD can match against Adobe after all. However, the new version of Illustrator 2019 has an incredible feature which is Freeform Gradient. Some people might say meh it sucks but I found out that it is quite cool, especially for people who use AD as a drawing tool and suck in coloring like me. I am wondering that will AD dev implement this feature to AD in the near future? It is already 10 months since the last update for AD in Mac and I am really excited to know that we will have a new big update for AD.
  19. So far, so very good. anyone know if there's a gradient mesh tool or something similar? I notice when opening illustrator files, which it does perfectly, designs with a gradient mesh open without the gm. Thank you.
  20. More than 150 ready-made gradiens in .afpalette format. I picked up the best solutions for your creativity. WORK WITH VERSION 1.5 Beta AND HIGHER http://www.demo.egorkomarov.ru/Gradient-palette-for-Affinity-Designer/
  21. I'm really hoping to see the gradient mesh tool. I was always a fan of the way it was implemented in DrawPlus over how Illustrator's worked.
  22. I'm trying to touch-up my Drone photos, but they look horrible in Affinity Photo compared to Windows Preview or even Gimp Here, the original file has a very very smooth gradient coming from that lamp. But as soon as I open the file in Affinity Photo, the glow from the lamp turns in to blocky color bands.. It's almost like it tries to convert it to web-only colors or something because the quality is horrible. (below, you will probably see some banding in your web-browser, it's actually WORSE in Affinity Photo) Download this image and view it locally, to see it without banding. If you still see banding when you open it locally, sorry your monitor sucks
  23. I apply an object style to a text frame. To get rid of it, I disable all layer effects* – all gone except for a grainy gradient, which also appears in the circled color and swatches previews, with HSL sliders in color palette. This structure appears to be resolution-independent: when I zoom in it is more detailed. – Great! When I now in the color pane move a slider, or switch from HSL to CMYK, both the texture and the gradient disappear, leaving an average color. No gradient, no structure. – Where is this structure defined? – Can I access the grainy structure seperately? * is there a shorter way to remove an object style than unselecting its layer-effects one by one?
  24. Bonjour Je n'arrive pas à répartir un dégradé correctement. Quelques soit le nombre de point insérer ceux-ci ne sont pris en compte que dans les premiers 50% du dégradé. D'avance merci pour votre réponse. Hi E.T.
  25. I'm using Affinity Designer for Windows and exporting SVGs with gradients for use with Unity. Unfortunately, Unity's SVG importer seems to have issues with the gradients. Here is what the Unity developer said: For reference, here is the exported circle w/ gradient: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?><!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11.dtd"><svg width="54px" height="54px" version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xml:space="preserve" xmlns:serif="http://www.serif.com/" style="fill-rule:evenodd;clip-rule:evenodd;stroke-linejoin:round;stroke-miterlimit:1.41421;"><path id="GradientHill" d="M0.012,26.717c0,-14.743 11.97,-26.713 26.714,-26.713c14.743,0 26.713,11.97 26.713,26.713c0,14.743 -11.97,26.713 -26.713,26.713c-14.744,0 -26.714,-11.97 -26.714,-26.713Z" style="fill:url(#_Linear1);"/><defs><linearGradient id="_Linear1" x1="0" y1="0" x2="1" y2="0" gradientUnits="userSpaceOnUse" gradientTransform="matrix(3.2714e-15,-53.4261,53.4261,3.2714e-15,26.7255,53.43)"><stop offset="0" style="stop-color:#9d9d9d;stop-opacity:1"/><stop offset="0.47" style="stop-color:#e9e9e9;stop-opacity:1"/><stop offset="1" style="stop-color:#fff;stop-opacity:1"/></linearGradient></defs></svg> Does anyone know if what he says is possible? An AD export option to force gradients to be defined earlier in the file? Thanks!
