  1. I use Photos on Mac with Affinity as plug in. I want to lighten an area with Affinity because its not possible with Photos. How to do it? I tried with Affinity Retouch but I was only able to select an area but not to lighten it.
  2. Hi all, I was trying to find some way to colorize parts of a text without changing its properties (I need that frequently for UI design). I found out that using another object with the Lighten blend mode seems to do what I want, but text is rendered quite poorly. Thyer is a rectangle with a Lighten blend over the text as a mask, but AD creates lots of intermediate colors which I don't want. The rightmost result is what I want. I've included the .afdesign file too. Is this the expected behavior? If yes, is there another way to accomplish this other than changing the text color itself? Lighten mask bug.afdesign
  3. Hello, I'm working with Windows beta which seems to me to be a fantastic product-in-the-making -- thanks and well done, Affinity team. I notice that I can use the Dodge brush successfully to lighten areas on the base ("Background (Pixel)") layer.... but after I've added a few more layers onto that, e.g. to adjust perspective or crop or brightness/contrast, using the dodge brush on those layers has no effect. The brush circle is still visible on the screen and its size and properties can be varied as normal.... it's just that applying it on these overlaid layers does nothing. Am I just being thick? I'm rather new and inexperienced in photo editing, so apologies if I'm trying to do something that won't work for reasons which to more experienced people are obvious and valid.
  4. Hello, I need some help regarding blend modes. So, I applied gold foil to an invitation design using "lighten" because that produced the most desirable results. However, it applies the effect to all the layers underneath. Is there a way to restrict where the blend mode is applied? I tried using a different method like "paste inside" and it did not produce desirable results. I only want the outlines gold, not the inside of the shapes/texts. I attached an example of what I'm working on. You can see that I've applied the gold to the outlines using the Lighten mode. Is there a better way? I am a newbie to graphic design and really need help. Any suggestions or tutorials would be appreciated! Thanks!
