  1. 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?
  2. Greetings Team So I was making a nice glow behind some text by creating a gradient in a circle and then making it oval by scaling it down on the vertical axis. It looks great in app but when I export it forces the gradient back to a round shape which looks odd. I understand PDF may not support distorted or oval gradients but then it should be rasterized properly before it exports. In app... in PDF (CMYK conversion so the colour is different)... Thanks for your review on this.
  3. Hi guys, First time I tried to use gradient for print and cannot figure out what's wrong. ;) Check the screenshots. On the display the gradient looks perfect. In the exported PDF it looks awful. I've tried circle with radial transparency 0-100% added, and also white circle with white to transparent gradient. Same result. Midpoint is at 40% and I even tried different transparency/color values for this midpoint but it's still the same. is there a simple way how to achieve this gradient for print? Thanks.
  4. 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
  5. Is it possible to copy gradients in Affinity Designer? How would you do it? If I wanted a repeating gradient to occur, it would be very time-consuming to individually create the gradient for many different objects.
  6. Hi guys, It would be great if when using gradient colors, we could use the COLOR PICKER tool. For example, I have an object that has a gradient color. When I click on one of the handlers, to change one of the colors, if I use the color picker tool, the shape loses its gradient color and turns into the color chosen by the color picker, regardless of the fact that I first clicked on one of the gradient handlers. It would be great if when clicking on a gradient handler, and afterwards selecting the color picker tool and selecting a color, only the color of the gradient linked to the handler I clicked on, will be changed. I was actually surprised it doesn't work like this by default Thank you, Chris
  7. I feel it’s not possible in AD, but just to be sure, is there a way I can apply a gradient to the stroke width? I mean, I know I can apply a gradient to the length of a stroke, but can I do it also to the width, so that gradient would follow the path of the stroke? My first thought that it maybe could be done via layer effects, but I couldn’t figure it out.
  8. Dear people, How do I use the linear gradient tool, if I want to fill a shape from top to bottom? The gradient only goes from side to side and I can't adjust the settings so that it goes from top to bottom. Danke.
  9. Hi there, I have 3 branding colors (1 main accent, one near white and one near black). In my video editor I found an option to set a different color for the light and the dark tone independently. So I set 2 of my colors, set the saturation and the intensity each to 50% - voila, loved the result. Now I want to do the same to my photos for branding reasons. So I tried all the options I could find (including the colorize function with the 2 sepia presets) but didn't get really close. How can I do this in Affinity Photo? Thanky ou for your help, Andi PS: My exact colors are vintage white: #FCF9F2 / 252 249 242 (instead of plain white) beige: #DEB887 / 222 184 135 dark brown (instead of plain black): #35211D / 53 33 29.
  10. In the Develop Persona in the Overlay area: 1. Click on the gradient tool icon. 2. Create a gradient by dragging from top to bottom. Result: Gradient appears as coming across from the right edge of the image. Re-tested and this time drew a gradient from the left edge into the image and the result was a gradient was created from top to bottom. Windows 10 Version 2004 OS Build 19041.450
  11. I don’t normally use HSL colours so this is a new area for me. In my attached image I have two rectangles, each with a horizontal linear gradient fill. The top rectangle gradient goes from RGB 0, 0, 0 on the left to RGB 255, 0, 0 on the right and that looks as I would expect (the colour at the middle point is RGB 128, 0, 0, as can be seen in the little square below it). However, the bottom rectangle gradient goes from HSL 0, 100, 50 on the left to HSL 360, 100, 50 on the right but I don’t get the colours in-between the two as I can see in the “H” slider of the Colour Chooser. I would have expected – possibly naively – that the middle point of the gradient would be coloured as can be seen in the little square underneath (manually chosen colour), and I would get all of the other colours too, but it’s not. Am I doing something wrong? Is there some fundamental thing which I’m not understanding about HSL? I did a little searching in the forums but didn’t notice anything relevant. Some related questions but no answers that explained it (to me). (I’ve also attached the document for people to experiment with.) HSL-on-gradient.afdesign
  12. Windows 10 build 19603 Designer v 1.8.3.641 edit: also present on 1.8.4.650 beta Steps to reproduce: 1. Document created with multiple artboards. 2. Image applied to one single artboard. 3. Image selected, create mask. Works as expected. 4. Apply fill gradient to mask. Bug: Size of gradient mask applies to size of whole document. Expected behavior: Size of gradient mask should size according to parent image the mask is applied to. Images attached for evidence. Additional related bugs: 1. Click "Reverse Gradient" button in toolbar 2. Mask size changes to an unrelated size.
  13. I could do this in Photoshop with the gradient tool, but I can't find a way to do it in AP. I want to have a photo in a full-page ad at the top of a page to gradually fade into the copy block below it. In Photoshop, I could apply a gradient affect that would melt into transparent space at its bottom edge (or any age, for that matter). It was great for doing collages. Anyone been able to do this in AP?
  14. Hello, I have this issue. Not properly visualized gradient Affinity (Publisher; Designer) Google Chrome visualization.svg
  15. Hello, As a dataviz designer I often create the base of my works with SVGs on the web, so I can program the visual elements to be based on the data, then to import them into a vector tool for other adjustments. I've noticed that Affinity Designer doesn't import any SVG linearGradient / radialGradient nor patterns, which I do often use, so for now I can't rely solely on Affinity Designer sadly enough. (I copy the SVG element from the "Elements" section from the devTools in Chrome) I've attached a document that shows the import of the link below. All the inner curves that have a gradient in the online version are invisible (have no fill) in the import: https://bl.ocks.org/nbremer/raw/4de6f0a9d9d06373fc639e32e9c346cc/ For a radial gradient, you can try this: https://bl.ocks.org/nbremer/raw/e944485869ac8fd57413a158e9d8aae0/ which results in a no-fill circle being placed in Affinity Designer For pattern examples, you can try the following links that all are imported seemingly remaining invisible: https://bl.ocks.org/veltman/raw/57fbb830ba7e62caa46a82891168bc29/ https://bl.ocks.org/1wheel/raw/a8f39c8a96b71735488bf280d34bd765/ https://bl.ocks.org/veltman/raw/50a350e86de82278ffb2df248499d3e2/ I'm using Affinity Designer 1.7.1 on macOS Thank you!

  16. Hi Using Gradients, or shadow effects dramatically increases the exported SVG file size. Do anyone have any tips/tricks for how to use gradients in a way that does not affect the file size? This is important for use on webdesign etc. By example, a file was 4kb, without gradient. Introducing 1 gradient and 1 shadow effect resulted in a 60kb SVG file. Anders
  17. I have 2 separate curve layers that overlap. At a certain point for these two curves(between the two black arrows) I want the gradients to merge or blend together more. Is there a way to do this without converting these layers to pixel layers or doing something destructive?
  18. Hi folks, I've notice that beside what the documentation says, Global Colors are not acting as global when used with gradients. Since a picture movie worth thousand of words, here is it: GlobalColorDoNotWorkOnGradient.mov Create two new global colors Create a new shape with a gradient fill Set both colors of the gradient to your previously created global colors Edit any of the two global colors used in this gradient --> The gradient fill won't update to reflect the edited global color. I sadly have to admit this is insanely contra productive :( Cheers,
  19. This feature is unparalleled and extremely powerful. redefines vector coloring. Affinity should do everything in its power to support this feature. @TonyB Learn more: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/gradients.html#create_apply_freeform_gradient
  20. When applying a gradient, it is quite hard to predict what the impact of the default gradient will be. The new node will have changes in HSL, but these changes are inconsistent and not always desired. It would be great if we could have a way to toggle impact of gradient to be: H [decrease][do not change][increase] S [decrease][do not change][increase] L [decrease][do not change][increase] Imagine I only want to decrease luminosity across a large number of objects, then I can select decrease luminosity and do not change hue and saturation. This way I can productively stroke every object in the desired direction and model objects with a predictable effect.
  21. On thing that I lke the most of using Affinity Designer is the Gradient Tool. Is by far one of the most satisfying tool to use, However, I think one minor change on it's behavior could greatly improve the workflow of using the tool. The gradient tool don't suport the color picker tool. That's very anoying when coloring, because some times I want to pick a color from a place and this reset the Gradient Tool. Other minor changes would be related to the Splash Screen. Why not have a open Document here too? And make the open Document or recent documents listed here, also having bigger buttons as well. Finally my last suggestion would be having a option to turn "Scale with object" default.
  22. Look like the gradient tool can't use document swatches for choose color and instead only use blended colors. Is there a way to use the document swatches? I did something wrong?
  23. Hi guys, I have created a color gradient in a layer fx (see image) - now I want to copy that gradient somehow or ideally make it a swatch/global gradient. But I don't see how. Thanks in advance, Stefan.
  24. When working with gradients you may wish to save one of the colors as a swatch but there are quite a few steps to do to make this happen, and doing so will affect the current gradient scheme ie. its object. I explain further below. My suggestion is to add the Swatch Add button to the Node of the gradient, which saves you all the steps explained further below. Now I will explain how taking the extra steps to add this color to a palette changes the current gradient scheme. 1. To best explain, I begin with showing the previous color in the gradient scheme so you can see the full workflow. 2. I will now alter the color. You will see that the color picker in the HSL popup is the previous color. To make the color picker the new color, I can either drag the color picker to the Node in the gradient scheme, OR I close and reopen the HSL popup (which is faster). 3. After closing and reopening the HSL popup, the color picker is now my desired color to save to a palette. Now that the color picker has been changed.... 4. The swatches panel shows the color picker has the new color, but the current gradient scheme will be changed as soon as I click the color picker. 5. I click the color picker, and the gradient has changed which allows me to proceed to saving the swatch, but the current object color is also changed. This workflow greatly reduces the ability to both experiment with colors in a gradient by impeding my ability to develop a set of preferred color in swatches palette. • It forces me to save a gradient prior to saving a node color. • It forces me to think whether I should finalize my gradient scheme so I'm not creating unwanted swatches in my color palette. • It abruptly changes the color of my object in the process of saving a desired color in the gradient scheme. • It stifles creative development as I may encounter other experimentation phases with other objects and not seek to go through all the steps to save a color node as a swatch. thank you
