  1. 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
  2. I have 3 super annoying issues I keep having in AD, even after upgrading to iPad Pro, 2018. 1. When I have an image/pixel based icon I’m using for a repeat; If I have the original on the left edge, and duplicate and try to move that duplication across the canvas to the right edge, it moves both icons, even when only the duplicate is selected. It will move the original off to the center of the canvas, while moving the duplicate where I want it. This happens when I try to move the duplication from left to right. Oddly though, not right to left movements. 2. Another annoying bug, I find when using pixel based icons, is, say I have dropped in my asset that is pixel based, I resize it and position it in the middle of my canvas. Now I want to duplicate that icon and place it on another part of my canvas. So I select it and duplicate. Once I select my duplication in my layers panel and drag it to another area, it will again move both icons when only one icon was selected. My work around this particular issue is never duplicate a pixel icon that is placed on my canvas, I can only drop in a “new” asset and resize. Its more work, but it works. 3. The last annoying pixel bug in AD I’ve found is, say I finally get my pixel icons in the correct positions on my edges, I now group them in my layers. Say, I want to adjust their position slightly for a better balance later on. If I select that group and make any sort of position adjustments, it will move any or all icons in all sorts of directions off my canvas. Sometimes they just disappear entirely. So when working in pixels in AD, if my edges are grouped, I am forced to commit and never move them again, ever. But if I’m using 100% vector icons, I never have any of these issues. video shows the first 2 of the issues in action. I could not get the 3rd bug recorded in this pattern. IMG_0487.MP4
  3. How do I do the following: "Please select an RGB pixel layer before entering Develop."
  4. I need to do this so I can make a pixel layer to add some texture without the various shapes showing lines/edges. I';ve succewssfully done this with the rest of the image as you can see in the attached photo. But those were all single shapes. I made this alien's body in 4 different shapes but I want them completely merged. I thought I could group them and add new pixel layer... but no matter where I place the pixel layer... it's just not right. How do I merge these 4 shapes into 1 shape? Not just group them. I feel like it's an obvious answer....
  5. Si all, how can i use the transparency tool on an image that has been rasterised? When you import images in affinity designer they are displayed as "image" in layer panel. But since you rasterize them, they are defined as "pixel". Is there a way to put "pixel" back into "image" in order to use transparency tool on them? Or is there a way to use transparency tool on pixel? Thanks ! Bento
  6. Hello guys, So happy with my Affinity photo experience for drawing my comics, except while working - and since it's new to me - I mistakenly start to draw on the wrong layer*, and when I try to cut that part and paste it into the correct layer I do the following: in the current layer I select the part I wish to transfer ctrl + x I choose the layer I'm wishing to have this part on instead ctrl + v and what I get is a new layer with this part and the same name as the layer I cut the part from, and then I have to merge and it's really quite frustrating is there any parameter I can adjust to solve that? am I doing anything wrong? *side note: I don't know how I suddenly move from one layer to another without realizing! I'm in my desired layer and all of the sudden I'm on another layer with already half of what I've done in there! I must be doing something stupid somehow 😅 any ideas
  7. Hi! I'm new to the software, but have been a pro user of Photohop since 1997. I've opened a png file, 300 dpi, rgb to play with. I've done a shift-command-n to create a new, blank pixel layer, but am unable to paint on the layer. If I create a duplicate of the background layer, I can paint or manipulate the image. Would love some feedback on what I can do to make this work! Thank you. Running software on an iMac, OSX Yosemite v. 10.10.3 and using an Intuos 5 tablet. affinityscreengrab.tiff
  8. I'm trying to create a blur gradient, so I: Duplicated a rasterised image Added ±65% gaussian blur to the top image Tried to use the fill tool to create a transparency gradient of the top image Every time I select the pixel image and pull the fill tool across it, the program hangs solid. I've tried: Restarting Affinity Restarting the laptop Not using the gaussian blur Changing the image Anyone have any idea why this is happening and how I can get around it? p.s. I'm not sure if this is the best way to achieve the affect I'm looking for, so if anyone has any alternative suggestions I'm all ears p.p.s. The spinning beachball of death does its thing pretty much as soon as my mouse stops on the right-hand side of the image. affinity fill tool issue.mp4
  9. Hi guys I've noticed this bug on Affinity Photo 1.6.6 on my iMac (21,5inch late 2012 whit HighSierra) Brush tools don't paint on a blank empty new added pixel layer (neither on new file created blanked). Brush start to paint if only first I had filled the empty layer whit the flood fill tools, for i.e. On Affinity Designer 1.6 brushes tools works greats on blank empty layer and on 1.5.x I'dont had any problem whit the brushes and layers in the past. I hope You can resolve the bug very soon on my preferred best picture editors! M.
  10. I came across a strange behaviour concerning image layers vs. pixel layers. In the attached file there are two groups each with the same layers: Well, actually there is a little difference between the groups: in the lower group the bokeh image is an image layer, in the upper group the image layer was rasterized to an pixel layer. Both bokeh layers have the same blend ranges: The mask layers in both groups are completely white. When the mask is switched off, in both groups the resulting images are completely the same. But when the mask is switched on, although as an empty mask it should not have any effect, in the image layer group the resulting image differs from the "unmasked" version. This looks like a bug to me. AP behaves as expected when blend ranges are reset. It looks as if the "white color" of the mask layer has some effect because of the setting in the source layer ranges. Well, only in the image layer group. Strange.... AP 1.7.3.481 Windows 10 GirlWithBokeh_Mask.afphoto
  11. The Flood Select tool apparently does not work on Image layers. Works fine on pixel layers but not on image layers which is pretty inconvenient. And I'm not talking about editing or drawing on the Image layer, but only selecting the desired parts of it with the Flood Select tool to for example make a mask from that selection or paint inside the selection on another layer to name just two cases where it would be helpful.
  12. After placing an image file in a document the newly created layer is of the "Image"-type, which might be ok to avoid recompressing the image, if you plan to export the document as pdf. But it is necessary to ratserize this layer in order to make pixel manipulations to it. I forget to do this almost every time I place an image, thus pixel manipulations just do not work but AP does not even complain that it is an image layer I want to work on... So it would be very handy to have a menu item "Place As Pixel Layer...". I think this could be solved by a macro, but I would prefer the command in the "File" menu.
  13. Can some one tell me why my signature, Logo shows up when I add a pixel layer to a photo and try to use the paint brush it places my logo throughout the photo. I know I must have done something and saved it that way ?? but if there is a way to just get rid of it please let me know
  14. I've noticed this on AP 1.5, and now I find it's present on 1.6 too. I'm using mesh warp to form mouth shapes for lip synching an animation. (I'll share it with you all on New Year's Eve ) I have two layers, one for the top lip and one for the bottom. When I click to set a node, the active layer moves very slightly down and right. When the warp is applied the layer moves back to the correct position, so it's not a problem as far as the finished image is concerned, but it does make it difficult to know precisely where I'm warping to. It only seems to be a small number of pixels, and for this application such tiny errors as might arise are negligible; but it would be a problem in other cases. Here's a screen shot with three layers (the hand is on top): This is the active layer (top lip): And the three layers before warping: And this animated gif shows the layer 'jumping' when a node is created: And in case you're wondering, it's one of Raphael's putti ...

  15. Hello, I'm trying to switch between personas, but I can't seem to get it to work. Every time I try, it tells me to select a RGB pixel layer before switching. When I look at the layers, I am already on a Pixel layer, and I don't see where else I should be selecting, can you help? I've attached an image of the screen as I'm using the program. Thanks, Rachel.
  16. Do this: 1. Launch AP. 2. New document. 3. Choose the Paint Brush and a color. 4. >> Note it says: "The assistant has added a new raster layer" 5. Close without saving. 6. New document. 7. Choose the Flood Fill tool (paint bucket) and a color. 8. Click on the page. 9. >> NOTHING HAPPENS. It does not make logical sense to me why the Assistant would assist me in auto creating a pixel layer for the Paint Brush tool but refuse to create a pixel layer when I click the Flood Fill tool on the canvas. Can someone explain the logic to me? If there is no sound logic behind it, I am inclined to submit a new feature request. (Keep in mind I am comparing my experience to Photoshop, where I don't need an assistant to create a paintable layer because a paintable layer appears automatically in Photoshop.) Thanks.
  17. I want to start off with a 'pixel layer' and then add some text to it & finally save as a png file. I've clicked on the pixel layer icon several times but nothing appears. How can I achieve this?
  18. Dudes/Dudettes, a little help please... Missing something obvious and simple again, I'm sure - and I've sincerely tried to research the forums myself, doing my own leg-work but am just stuck on this one. This time I brought along some visual aides. Working on a MacBook Pro with AD 1.5, all I am trying to do is remove the white background behind this black tote back (see images below). After surveying the forums, I understood that in order to accomplish this I needed to do the following (please point out my error): 1) add new Pixel layer over image 2) outline the image wanting to kept using Selection tools (I used the Brush selection tool)...pardon the crudely traced selection line, I'm just practicing 3) Invert the Pixel selection (I used the Ctrl+Shift+I keyboard shortcut)... **this is where I'm stuck - a post in the forum says to now 'paint in the selected area'. Would I not used the In-Fill tool by selecting a color then clicking on the selected area? This is what I tried, yet was unable to paint-in the selection. Feel like a major dork here guys - what am I missing? -Thanks as always AD Fam, --Christo
  19. This may be not be a bug, although by the logic on other software and features like "Sublayers" on Affinity Photo, I'm assuming that it is. I'm recording a macro in which I want to consolidate all the layers of the macro into a single folder, and I have a layer structure like this: And it works as intended, all the adjustment layers inside the MACRO folder affect how the pixel "Background" layer looks and I can hide the effect by just hiding the MACRO folder. BUT, as soon as I add a pixel layer anywhere inside the folder, even if it's completely empty, it all breaks and my macro edits become invisible, and they seem to only affect the pixel layer inside the folder, I've verified that my folder is completely visible with "Passthrough" as blending mode. So basically the folder is becoming the sum of all child layers and acting like a pixel layer on its own instead of just grouping. The reason I think this is a bug it's because the folder is not acting any different as if I were to merge its child layers, IMO folder are for structural reasons and only affect the way the child layers interact if the folder itself has its opacity or blending mode edited or has effects apply to itself (not the child layers, and if possible). And because if I wanted to limit the adjustment layers to the PIXEL layer inside the folder I should add them as SUBLAYERS to it, like so: am I right?
  20. I don't know if this is a bug or a feature. Colour palette needs to automatically change to black & white when editing masks - and change back to your previous colour palette when working on the pixel layer. This feature is very important when you are alternating between masks and pixel layers. Having to alter the palette every time you change from a pixel layer to a mask layer and back again can become very time consuming.
  21. Hello When 2 symbols containing pixel layers are moved, 1 of the pixel layers will also move relative to the symbol. i.e. a symbol containing a rectangle layer with a pixel layer centred on top has 2 instances on screen. When the 2 instances are moved together, one of the pixel images will (probably) be outside the rectangle, the other will be centred, as it should be. See attached video. - Draw a rectangle - Make it a symbol - Duplicate it (alt + drag) - Go to pixel persona - Draw a pixel image on top of the rectangle (on the video I draw the image then drag it into the symbol) - There are now 2 identical symbols containing a rectangle with a pixel image on top - Go back to draw persona - Select both symbols and drag elsewhere on the screen - 1 symbol does what you think it should do (move where you've dragged it) - The other symbol also moves but the pixel image moves somewhere else - (Select the pixel layer for the erroneous pixel image and the highlight box appears in a different place to the image) OSX 10.11.6 Designer 1.5.4 Paul
  22. You can not change the color of fill tool, when trying to fill pixel layer with Solid Color.
  23. In Affinity Photo I have a pixel layer that I scaled up. I then used the eraser tool to erase part of the layer. The edge where I erased was pixelated looking at 100% zoom. It seems that when a pixel layer is scaled larger that the pixel size is also scaled larger. So, I decided to rasterize that layer. Then I used the eraser tool again. This time the edge where I erased was clean and smooth. I am assuming the rasterizing of the pixel layer set the pixels on the layer to the same size as the document resolution. Does this mean that every time I scale a pixel layer larger that I will have to rasterize it so that the pixels on that layer are set back to the same pixel size as the document resolution? This does not seem convenient. I would think that when a pixel layer is scaled up or down that the layer will adjust to the resolution of the document. I understand that an image layer would behave differently. I wasn't sure if this was a bug or not.
  24. I thought I had done this before but I can't seem to do it now. I want to change a pixel layer to a curve how can I do it or can I do it in Designer. Thanks
