  1. Bonjour à tous, Est-il possible d'appliquer un style (dream métal - doré) à un pinceau ? Pour avoir un pinceau couleur or ? J'arrive à appliquer le style dream metal doré à un aplat ou à un contour simple (trait continu de base en faible épaisseur) mais je n'arrive pas à le combiner à un pinceau (type acrylique). Est-ce possible ? Un grand merci d'avance à toute la communauté !
  2. Here are some metal styles (mostly silver and gold textures): The compressed styles file: metal-styles.afstyles.zip
  3. Made from this excellent tutorial:
  4. Can someone confirm whether that is possible? It seems to be possible in Affinity Designer, but not in Affinity Photo, which is weird. I thought the apps were pretty similar. First screenshot is Affinity Photo, second is Affinity Designer.
  5. Here are also some Div Metal Styles (mostly dark textured/structured ones) for those who might have a need for these! The compressed AD styles files ... Div Metal Textures.zip
  6. I'm just playing with a few lightning brushes, the grouping of layers, layer effects and the radial blur. Metal activated (as usual)
  7. Hi, love your product, and I think it works fine except for two specific problems I seem to be having: 1. The first is that I am unable to save my preferences in both Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer even with program restart or macbook restart. I can edit the values in preferences but and when closing the preferences pane it prompts me to restart the program but upon restarting Affinity all of the preferences have been reset to default. 2. Solving the preferences problem would likely solve my second problem, which is that when using Photo/Designer on a second screen (Duet Display Pro on
  8. Hello I have a problem I do not know why metal does not use the Nvidia graphics card, just intel, Thanks
  9. My initial install of AfDesigner had a set of default styles which included Metal, Rainbow, Onyx, Glass etc. I used a couple of them. Now looking for them again, they have disappeared and been replaced by a different set of defaults. What happened to them, and how can I get them back please?
  10. I've just downloaded Photos 1.7 and I've checked the performance settings and Hardware Acceleration isn't available for my GPU, but I think that it should be. I'm running an old cheese grater style Mac Pro, but with High Sierra and an NVIDIA GTX 680, which is an Apple Metal supported card. My graphics card isn't listed under Hardware Acceleration and instead it states 'no compatible GPU'. I've checked my Graphics information on the System Report and it states 'Metal - Supported, feature set macOS GPUFamily1 v3', so I would expect it to be compatible. Does Photo 1.7 have additional hardware
  11. Hello there, I was trying to replicate the reflections on a pic and this was the result.
  12. Just a question, I'm using 1.7.1 on a a Power Mac 3 1, with High Sierra and a GTX770, which is Metal Supported, feature set macOS GPUFamily1 v3, but the Metal compute acceleration option is not available to me in the app prefs. Is this the way it's supposed to be?
  13. Hi, I just wanted to ask whether the Metal performance improvements on MacOS have been brought to Windows too, or are most effects here still being computed on the CPU?
  14. Let me first say that it was a real privilege to watch the Affinity Live presentation last night and to witness the obvious enthusiasm and vision of Serif in creating and marketing such a comprehensive suite of interactive products. I own all three and am delighted with them, though am far from being a power-user. However, one thing struck me quite forcibly last night: all the demonstrations in the presentation were running on either Mac or iPad. There was considerable time spent extolling the obvious benefits of e.g. using Metal to improve graphics speed and performance. I think
  15. Hi, I just purchase the Affinity Photo at Mac App Store. After installation, I tried to start the App and it crash after it show the start up banner. I am using iMac 2011 21.5" with Radeon Pro WX7100 eGPU on macOS 10.13.6. Any log / stacktrace I can provide for this issue? Thanks!
  16. Dear all, I am quite a newbie to photo editing and Affinity Photo. But after a Udemy Course and hours of searching tutorials, I got stuck on one topic :) The problem: I took a product photo of my watch for my online shop and have many reflections on the polished metal of the bezel. You can see fingers from me triggering the camera on the reflection of the bezel and also some spots on the bezel are overexposed, but nevertheless, I like this shot. My questions is: Is it possible to achieve a polished metal effect with any tool and retexture the bezel of my watch? I want
  17. Hello, I am a nebbie at using the software and the forms so any help would be appreciated. What I am trying to do is add a Metal Shine to an image. We are a manufacturing company and so we have metal products and when I photograph them some of the surfaces are more matte and my boss wants them to look less matte and more, well shiny, bright, inviting. I'd share the specific photo but I can't so below are some links to kinda what I am talking about. Not Shiny/Duller Examples: https://ae01.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1.UmraSCWBuNjy0Fhq6z6EVXa6/2pcs-High-Precision-Collet-Chuck
  18. I am using affinity products and was wondering which is the best possible way to accelerate Designer. I am using a 2017 MacBook Pro? Is metal the best solution?
  19. With Metal selected for 'Display' in Preferences > Performance, using the ⌥-click keyboard shortcut on a Layers panel thumbnail to Isolate an object works erratically: sometimes it isolates the object; sometimes it just selects the object without hiding everything else. Also, when it does work clicking on the canvas sometimes fails to unhide everything else. With Open GL selected for Display, everything works correctly. This seems to just be a screen refresh issue because zooming in or out even slightly either isolates the selected but not isolated object or unhides everything a
  20. Hi (Bonjour), I’m currently use a brand new iMac 5K 27 mid-2017 4.2 Ghz 32 Go RAM, latest High Sierra updates. The video card is a Radeon Pro 580 8192 Mo VRAM. I’m using Affinity Photo 1.6.7. What are the performance settings to get the fastest user experience with this iMac? Under DISPLAY: What to choose: Software, OpenGL (basic), OpenGL or Metal ? Should I use only integrated graphic GPU? Despite all my tests, I get constant similar performance with OpenGL or Metal or use GPU only? And the internal fan kick in very often
  21. Hello, yesterday I bought and installed Affinity Photo and I'm quite happy with it... However, now I looked into the preferences and there I read (in German, of course ;-)): "No compatible GPU" (I attached a screenshot) That would be a surprise for me, because the Radeon Pro 580 is the fastest in the iMac-lineup, with the exception of the iMac Pro, of course. Is that normal? Will it be fixed with future updates? Greetings from Hamburg, Sören P.S.: macOS High Sierra, 10.13.3
  22. Affinity Photo is a great piece of software, I love it! It would be great if Affinity Photo would be able to use the full potential of modern 10bit displays (aka support for one billion colors). This would allow to display smooth gradients without colour banding when working on 16bit images. Also it seems that Affinity Photo does not recognise the Vega Pro graphics card of the iMac Pro. The Option for Metal hardware acceleration is greyed out (no compatible device found).
  23. Hi all, A quick question... I'm running Affinity Designer & Affinity Photo on a Mac Pro 2010 with nVidia Quadro 4000 2gb GFX card on High Sierra 10.13.2 and cannot seem to get the 'metal' option under Performance to work - it's greyed-out. I've checked System Profiler and the report states Metal is supported. Interestingly, it works fine on my Macbook Pro Retina 15in (2012). Is this a bug?
  24. Running AP 1.6.6 (beta 7) on a MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016) with Touch Bar Suggestions as to what would the most applicable Performance settings for this machine?
  25. Hi all, I created a logo based on those of Vespa and Lambretta (I'm a longtime enthusiast). I 'chromed' them over the last couple of days. I'm getting the hang of it now but it was quite laborious. These are for my new Society6 shop, "Scooterissimo" (Stop laughing Paolo!) where EVERY product but one I've made is done in Affinity Designer. Link here: I'd love you to have a look: https://society6.com/coolprints Here's a poster of the Lambretta Li125 from 1958, all vector. Best wishes, Kevin (Generalissimo)
