  1. I'm going to ask this, though to be fair, I'm expecting a 'no-can-do'. The above is a row of shapes (created via the rectangle tool). I've not booleaned them (Layer > Geometry > Add, say), so they are still very separate objects. They're not even grouped. Question: Can I do the same with a row of text frames? (Indesign does it) I have tried simply dragging the gradient tool over some text frames and it applied it to the text. So... will it do the fill instead? Just out of interest - I've learned giving text frame objects fills gets a no vote. Instead, one has to "decorate the text" to look like a fill (Buried under Text > show paragraph > decorations). So 2nd question: If I'd used text decorations to create the look of a fill, could the text decoration be graduated as the above? ------------------- btw, though I'm one for keeping files simple and clean, with one object where others use three, this is one of those exceptions that proves my rule. So I'm expecting to remove all the fills I have on the text frames, and to draw rectangles that the text frames sit over. So 50 objects where I currently have 25. (It may well not matter computationally, but it sure as heck does when you come to edit it. The more complex the file, the more hard work it is to edit)
  2. It was recently suggested that I create s single post showing all of the free resources we have made available via https://affinity.graphics as some were never announced here and some folks still don't know about Affinity.Graphics for finding resources. We just updated the site a bit and released 2 more free resources there, so stop by and check things out. You can find DSV's offerings directly at our Affinity.Graphics User Page. Attached are promo images of everything we've released to date. Enjoy!

  3. Hello all, I've just starting using Affinity designer (trail) and like it very much. I have a little problem though and I'm sure that when someone points out what I'm doing wrong I'll kick myself. I've applied a gradient to an object and now want to return it to a solid fill but I cant find a way of removing the gradient. If I create another fill and apply it always is set to gradient when I apply it the object. I've tried setting no fill creating a new fill then applying it but always its a gradient fill! I'm sure the solution is simple and obvious but I'm missing something here. Thanks in advance, Anthony
  4. LIVE Fill Layer GRADIENT Macros I used my Color Wheel ( 12 ) 30' palette to create ALL 2 color gradient combinations. Can be applied from any layer. Setup applies 50% opacity with Soft Light blend mode to a linear gradient. Each macro is a separate gradient that can be FULLY manipulated as a LIVE Fill Layer. Gradients ( 30' ).afmacros - 30' shift ( 12 ) ( Analogous ) Gradients ( 60' ).afmacros - 60' shift ( 12 ) Gradients ( 90' ).afmacros - 90' shift ( 12 ) Gradients ( 120' ).afmacros - 120' shift ( 12 ) Gradients ( 150' ).afmacros - 150' shift ( 12 ) Gradients ( 180' ).afmacros - 180' shift ( 6 ) ( Complementary ) Enjoy, - T V
  5. Is there any plans to add CIE-LAB gradients for affinity? I've been playing around with them in Python and LAB-interpolated gradients look a lot better than RGB-interpolated gradients, especially for backgrounds and things like that. I looked through the SVG standard and SVG supports CIELAB interpolation, along with a few others. So is there any plans to add alternate gradient interpolations to Affinity designer? Or even a full LAB color space, like in Affinity Photo or photoshop? I added a photo for anyone that's interested (CIELAB on the left)
  6. When copying, changing duplicating objects. Once i move the object the gradient appears.. Sorry for the lack of explanation. Hard to describe. Will try and get a vid , but very busy with work. Gary
  7. FYI, this question has to do with AP: Looking at a recent image, I noticed some faint banding that was visible when I applied a color gradient (maybe it was there in the B&W version, but I couldn't see it). See the darker of these two images: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/20687-photos-from-a-mountaintop/(FWIW, I see the banding on my non-retina, late 2013 iMac; I haven't checked on other machines). Searching the forums I came across a comment about the "Dither Gradients" preference and the different effects if you are working in 8-bit or 16-bit (see MEB's comments in this thread: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/13742-unwanted-noise-in-gradients). So, my question: If I'm working in 16-bit, is it better to leave "Dither Gradients" preference checked? Or unchecked? Thanks, Darin
  8. Link to Metallic Gradients Share Here are some fancy metallic gradients I put together.
  9. I am a B&W photographer. My RAW files end up a bit too dark and, consequently, lose detail. I am trying to learn how to use the radial gradient tool to lighten up areas. I would appreciate being pointed to a few good tutorials for beginners on this topic. I am not talking about using the Gradient Map. Thanks,
  10. Hi guys, Looking for advice on how to colour the back of this Lister Storm accurately. The work flow I have in my head at the moment is to create an overall outline of the car. Then a second shape using the pen to outline the coloured section and mask it inside the car and maybe fill this green as this is the bulk of the colour. To achieve the coloured 'splodges'(?) I'm considering doing rough shapes and then gaussian blur as opposed to using any gradients. Does this seem logical? If not does anyone have any tips. Many thanks!
  11. “Space Base” is a vectorial image with a sci-fi theme, created as if it was a still frame from an anime movie. Another vector illustration made with basic shapes, gradients and this time, special brushes for the clouds. This work was also made following a tutorial by visual artist Isabel Aracama, and you can acess her site for this tutorial plus the freebies: www.isabelaracama.com

  13. Hello!! Whenever I apply a gradient in AP 1.9.4 (Apple Store version) and later I want to modify it in any way (e.g. change the midpoint, modify one of the colors, etc.) I have to re-do the whole process from the beginning of applying a gradient, choosing the colors (if different than the default B&W), etc. is there a way to modify an existing gradient starting from the state in which it already exists (saved or not)? Thanks, Mauricio
  14. 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.
  15. Hi, While using Affinity photo, I found that there was no gradient presets which we can just click once and generate a layer. This will also help us quicken our work flow. Thank you.
  16. I would like the ability to go back and adjust or edit a gradient after applying it. Currently we must redraw a new gradient.
  17. I like to proppose an additional feature for Affinity Photo, which I was missing: appling stored gradient fills from the color swatches panel in the fx-panel dialog.
  18. I’m encountering this extra gradient line a lot. I believe it’s when an object with a gradient applied is scaled or transformed in any way. Then when I decide to tweak the gradient and choose the gradient tool -> this (attached) is what I see. Feels like the moment I do anything with an object with a gradient, this is added. 1) Is there an easy, quick, no-faff way to get rid of it, please? 2) Am I doing something when first applying the gradient that invites this? Put another way: can I apply a gradient and set something that prevents this? Thank you - all help appreciated, always.
  19. Under Preferences -> Performance, there's an option to dither gradients, however I noticed that it only applies to gradients made with the gradient tool, and not with gradients you apply in Layer FX. Not sure if this is a bug or just something that has been overlooked.
  20. As a web designer, I find websites like uiGradients.com a quite useful resource, with a massive selection of ready-made gradients (and css code for those). This palette is a complete (01.09.2018) pack of all gradients alongside their names, hand-imported over the course of an afternoon and a few podcasts. I don't think you can copyright colors/gradients, but the GitHub repository of the uiGradients.com website is licensed under MIT. I'll try to keep the file up to date with the website, but if there's a missing gradient or a error, please tell me about it. Enjoy: uiGradients.com.zip (A preview will follow soon)
  21. Is this something that can’t be done (yet) in the iPad version of Designer, or have I just not twigged it? I scaled a set of objects, some of which have gradients applied. The online help (which I believe is Desktop only) explains what it is - a "gradient correction path". It says the gradient correction path can be deleted - leaving the original in place I assume - see attached. Totally fine if I have to delete and reapply the gradient. Totally understand the app is at version 1, so there’s a big mopping up job yet to do.
  22. I made a set of gradients for Affinity Designer. My first attempt at AD gradient set! Tada! :D I originally created the set to be used at work (using Illustrator) and I made this to share with the nice folks here at Affinity Forum. Hope you guys find this useful. Thanks! - Maya MAYA-GRADIENT-VOL-1.zip
  23. There are times when you get the perfect color for something but it's trapped in a gradient and the color picker just won't do. The recent colors section saves the whole gradient. This is also a problem when you want to repeat colors within a gradient but the copy button is not enough--the last color, for instance. If the color points could be dragged out of the gradient composer or insert-name-here it would be amazing 'cause then you could just drop 'em in the palette or something--but they can't. :(
  24. is there a way to save gradients to the swatch pallet ? i can save colors. thanks
  25. A Photo on PC: I'm sure I'm missing something and search hasn't helped me. I make a gradient BG ie Blue to white on a diagonal. I want to modify it but the gradient wheel does not reember my last seeing or the setting on the layer I'm working on. Swearing at the screen has no effect. 🙄 What should I be doing so that I can modify my layer without starting the gradient from scratch?
