  1. Hi, y'all... I just purchased a vector image for my project. It looks like this (see pic bellow) if I open it on Affinity Designer. How can I edit the pic? I just need to make it smaller or bigger, and modify it for my project. I am very thankful for any hints.
  2. Painted Face in Minutes! Affinity Photo beginner tutorial on how to give a face a painted look in just minutes. The tutorial uses black and white photos and a black background to manipulate the photo. https://youtu.be/lhoqEDRjELQ
  3. Working with Masks is greater than in any other application I have worked with so far, the ease of having child layers and being able to stack a mask over the other truly is amazing. However... One thing that I have found disorienting is that when I use the colour picker tool, rather than picking a value of black an white from the mask that I am working on, Afphoto decides to pick a colour from the Parent Layer (Even when the Source is set to "Current Layer" while having the mask selected). Even though working a mask will only paint with the luminosity value of the sample taken, as you may well know, the values on the Parent Layer are part of a whole and having the Colour Picker Tool to take a sample from the Parent Layer and not the Mask you are working on results in picking an unwanted value when I am actually trying to pick a shade of gray that has already been used on said mask In the long run this means that for me to be able to take the desired sample, I must go to the colour wheel / sliders manually and try to guess what that value was or take my attention away from the whole and having to isolate the mask to get the value that I want. If the colour picker could be adjusted in a way that it picks the shades of gray FROM the mask while working INSIDE the mask it could certainly enhance workflow speed and consistency. Thanks for the attention and time to read this request. Cheers!
  4. This is driving me nuts and I'm sure there's a simple answer. I use clipping masks a lot when laying out content. In Illustrator, once I've placed the mask, I can easily resize/reposition the masked image without affecting the size or position of the mask itself. In Affinity Publisher, however, once I mask an image, I can reposition/resize the mask to my heart's content, but I can not for the life of me find a way to reposition or resize the image within the mask without releasing the mask altogether. Is this possible? If so, how?
  5. Hi. How can I "connect" (and "disconnect") a mask to his layer, to modify the layer (rotate, enlarge, etc.) into its mask without rotating, enlarging, etc. the mask ??? Is there a symbol or something that shows the layer "connected" or "disconnected" to its mask ? In few words: if "connected", each modification affects either the layer and the mask...if "not connected" it will affect the layer and not the mask. I hope that is clear... I'm sure it's easy and on my watch, but it's driving me crazy Thank you!
  6. I feel like I'm being a bit stupid, but I just can't figure it out. I'm using a curve adjustment layer, with a grey scale image as a mask. As you can expect, a mask is just a normal pixel image, meaning I can manipulate it how I want, use a brush, whatever. What I'm trying to do is to increase contrast of the mask image, by using an adjustment like curves or levels. But I just can't figure out how to use adjustments on a mask! It always creates a new, separate adjustment layer, not manipulating the existing mask. What am I missing?
  7. Hello, why does masked adjustment layer yields different result depending on whether mask is applied directly (correct result) or on the group that adjustment is nested inside. Could it be because I work in 32 bit mode?
  8. Hi... I have a thing that make me crazy... the cropping tool does not works as photoshop. when you crop a picture, the image still exists beyond limits, same happens when you mask something... so i export a part of a picture but the image resulting is not only the selected item that i want to export. A masked object is exported (blank) beyond its limits creating a exported image with incorrect dimensions. I try to use the slice tool but does not work for me... is there any way to export what we see, not the whole masked objects... is so unproductive to export and load the image to cut it Thanks
  9. Hi, the source is a transparent png. I selecteted the dog and expanded the selection. How can i change the mask into a curve? Any tips or ideas? Regards Christoph
  10. Hello Guys, I know, this is maybe a very ordinary question for the Pros of you, but I didn't found a solution on the Internet. I'd like to know how I can use text as a mask layer in Affinity Publisher. I have a shape in front of an picture, and I want the shape to be transpartent in the Pixels of the Text. In easy words, I'd like to have a text inside a shape which persists out of the picture behind the shape. There is one more thing to consider in my question, I don't want the Picture to be enclosed in the Text, I want the shape to be transparent in the pixels, the text consists out. In the annex you can see what I mean. I'd be happy about an answer😉 For the one's of you, who are German: Hallo Zusammen, Da ich im Internet keine Lösung dazu gefunden habe frage ich nun euch, ich würde gerne wissen, wie ich in Affinity Publisher Text auf einer Form aus dem dahintergelegenen Bild bestehen lassen kann. Einfacher gesagt der Text auf einer Form soll aus dem Bild bestehen, und das Bild weiterhin daneben bestehen. Also nicht so dass das Bild in den Text eingeschlossen wird, sondern so das die Form an der Stelle transparent wird, an dem sich die Pixel des Textes befinden. Im Anhang sieht man das ganze nochmal. Über eine Antwort würde ich mich freuen😉
  11. Hi Guys, I want to design a T-Shirt print. It should be a big blob or splash and the outlines of our Logo should be left clear inside the blob. I tried to create a mask with the shape of the logo outlines, but all It does is that the outlines get the colours and the texture of the splash. But ich want the splash with the Logo cut out in the middle of it. Has anybody an idea? Kind regards Florian
  12. I created a vector mask according to the instructions in the help file ("Mask to Below"). The file consists of vector shapes, which I grouped, plus a circle mask. The goal is to see only what's inside the circle. In Affinity Designer, everything displays perfectly, yet upon export the mask is inverted and only what I want to remove from the original image is displayed. If I check "Rasterize unsupported effects," however, then the file exports and only what's inside the circle is shown, but I get a rasterized object in an SVG wrapper, which is exactly what I don't want. (Is a vector mask somehow an unsupported effect?) How can I export the file in SVG format only as vectors? Many thanks in advance for any assistance. (I'm an Affinity Designer beginner.)
  13. Hi all, Is there a way to hide temporary the Liquify Freeze Tool mask? Just like the Hide mesh checkbox. Cheers, Juan
  14. 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.
  15. Masking only mask selected area. To have an inverse mask use Shift or Alt key then click on mask they goes to inverse mask otherwise they work normal.
  16. Hello there! Been enjoying Publisher so much, all my work is done fast and with great quality. However I encountered a very serious bug that will destroy hours of effort in no time, it goes as the following: Here we have the following master page: I've made masks around every object like the paperclips, the folder, the pages. Then, I decide to duplicate the master page: After duplicating it, the duplicate removes the masks of objects, usually at random. The mask I made remains but like a dummy, un-cheking it and checking it again in the layers panel does nothing. Plus, this very same issue is applied to the original master page as well: Sometimes an object will disappear but will remain in the layers panel, not even showing in the resource manager tool. Has anybody else encountered this issue? Hours and hours of work can go down the drain with this issue.
  17. Coming from photoshop here..... In this image I added a saturation layer, completely desaturated and I want to paint it back in on the computer hardware. When I press "Q" the mask is just fully red. I cannot actually see my paint marks to be more accurate? How the hell do I see this!?
  18. UPDATED: paint brush DOES NOT WORK when painting a mask as shown in affinity tutorial 2 pixel layers, black mask on the top one, I select the brush and white paint and try to paint on the mask, nothing happens. Am I missing something? you paint masks with black and white to mask out or in things right? EDIT: can confirm even after watching affinity tutorial on masking, paint bursh does not work atall on a mask, it doesn't wor for painting white nor black, the only available thing is to "paint" the mask with the eraser tool, operation which is not reversable. Help, there must be something wrong
  19. How do I use a pixel layer containing a greyscale image as a layer mask so that white pixels show the current layer and black pixels hide the current layer, and grey shades in between represent partial transparancy? In the screenshot (attached) I want to use the black and white picture of the skull to mask the green square so that I end up with a green skull where the white is, and the black are would be transparent. any grey pixels would be different levels of transparancy. I really need step by step instructions as I just don't understand how to do this in AP as I am so used to doing it in Adobe Photoshop. Thanks
  20. How can I turn my curve into a selection so that I can continue working with it? Or is this function not yet available?
  21. Any ideas why this is? I can't work it out. Affinity_Help.mov
  22. Hello Affinity Users Group - I am using Affinity Photo to make a panorama of a mountain scene. I used the brush selection tool to select the sky, at the end of which I used the "Refine" option to improve the details of the boundary between mountain and sky. When I was finished, the boundary between mountain and sky, as delineated by the "marching ants," looked quite good, and at that point I made a mask based on that selection. I was expecting the marching-ant boundary to be perfectly binary, with pure black on one side and pure white on the other. However, when I take a close look at the white-black boundary of the mask, it is not very clean. That is, the white part of the mask near the boundary has a number of gray pixels (within a width of 20-50 pixels or so), and the same is true for the black part of the mask near the boundary. The result is that the mask near the boundary is "leaky." One way to clean this up is to use the brush tool to clean up this "noise," painting white on one side and black on the other. However, my panorama is large, and the white-black boundary has a lot of structure, so a manual repair using the brush tool would be quite tedious and time consuming. Can anyone shed some light as to why I get this leaky boundary, and can you recommend an efficient way of cleaning it up? Thank you.
  23. Hi folks. I searched for this question in the forums but couldn't find it. I have a masked layer and I am trying to use a brush to add more to the layer (ie. I want to reveal more of the item that is being masked). When I use a brush with the color black, it erases more of the basked object, rather than revealing it. What am I doing wrong?
  24. Although I have posted this under other topics before,but I think it should be a bug. When I wanted to use photo for image matting, I found some problems. I selected the part of an image that I wanted to keep, then I clicked on the mask button in the layers palette and moved the whole thing around a bit. I found some remnants of the original image on the edge of the image rectangle. I then realized that this was caused by placing the mask background in white and filling only the currently visible area with black. This is a problem not only for photo and Windows platforms, but also for design and the ios platforms.
