  1. I've recently created several vector only designs in Affinity Designer. When I go to export them as SVG instead of being vector svg files they are svgs that contain raster pngs embedded in them and hence don't scale properly. This is not what I want. 😢 Is there any way to tell affinity designer to export the vector design as only a vector svg not png embedded in svg? Are there features of the software that force the design to export embedded pngs, and if so is there a refence to which ones so they can be avoided and alternate methods employed? I've noticed specifically that outer shadow fx seems to trigger this, i'd really like to know which other features trigger this behavior so that i can make svg vector safe resizable designs. Anyone know a reference to this aspect of Affinity Designer? Many Thanks. ❤️
  2. I am wondering whether it is possible to export vector graphics from Affinity Designer with 3D effects as purely vectors. My experiments with this seem to indicate that those 3D effects always get rasterised on export. Is that the case? Whenever I export without rasterising being applied, the resulting file loses all 3d effects.
  3. Just discovering affinity and getting used to the program took a hot second as my only digital experience has been a few undergrad digital painting courses with the cintiq but I primarily work on ipad with procreate UNTIL now. Overall I love Affinity so far as a comics creator, the toolsets the platform offers are just better suited to my needs as a sequential artist in general, and is the first legitimate alternative to photoshop I feel that has been offered on the IOS platform. Inking in the platform is miles ahead of procreate in that I can get a nearly analog realistic end result just with the default brush sets alone (which I haven’t even tweaked yet). I do have several things that have come up that are by no means deal breakers but admittedly when going through my workflow proved to be somewhat of an impediment. 1- With tool short cut commands while using a keyboard, the limitations in the pixel persona are quite evident. You have an amazing toolset available and the ability to switch back and forth between ALL available tools with keyboard shortcuts would speed up my workflow significantly. Namely when working in the pixel persona, having the ability to use a shortcut to quickly switch to the selection tool would be amazing. Possibly a solution could be to keep the current shortcuts as they are but simply adding the neglected tools to the list WITHOUT default shortcuts, allowing the user to input commands themselves to whatever suits their needs. -expanding on this some more, additionally adding a keyboard function to alter brush size and opacity would be amazing, or just the option to custom bind a key to it. 2- One thing I noticed while working was that the program struggled keeping up with my speed? (As an FYI I’m on a 2nd gen IpadPro 12.9”) Admittedly I work rather quickly and freehanded so when doing things like hatching- if I make strokes in rapid succession the program tends to seize up slightly and takes a few seconds to register the marks, and typically when it does any indication of pressure sensitivity is gone and I have to erase and slow myself down. Lastly- altering the function of pressing “shift” while actively drawing. I really wish it didn't “lock” the line to either vertical or horizontal and instead treated it as a point of origin while maintaining control over pressure sensitivity and snapping to a straight line. Again, overall I LOVE affinity as a sequential artist and have been informing my professors and colleagues about the program with great enthusiasm- and all of them expressed keen interest when I listed all the functionality options affinity has in comparison to procreate. You guys have truly made the ipad a viable alternative to other mobile creative platforms and I sincerely thank you! Threw a page of inking I did in here where I was basically just experimenting with brush functionality and learning the platform in general!
  4. Hi, I want to ask about exporting EPS file. 1) When i export to EPS as "EPS FLATTEN", does it really mean that the file is totally rastered and UN-EDITABLE on any graphic software ? 2) And, i've tried to export as "EPS FLATTEN", and i got this white background attached. How to exclude that white background ? I need to make sure that my EPS file which i would sent to my client is for printing purpose only, as i have policy not to share raw material. Much appreciate if this forum can help me with solution for my situation. Thank you
  5. Created a new set of small paint brushes for detailed texture work Zip file contains 30 brushes (3 pack x 10) PDF sample file added Paint Brushes S1 P1-P3.zip PAINT Brushes Set 1-01-03.pdf
  6. Organic texture Brushes Pack 1 Version 2.0 I have been working on updating the original texture brush packs so that it complies with more recent uploads The original 11 brush packs(.zip) files have been removed and replaced with a single file containing all the original brush packs so that they are stil accessible Added a new set now containing 12 brush packs (120 brushes) also in a single file for download. Made significant changes to the original brushes a. simplified the nozzles by removing the intense pattern overlays and added 28 new additional png files to increase pattern variation. b. Reduced the initial size of the some of the original brushes. c. Adjusted the brush dynamics to allow for use of flow and accumulation in the general brush tab d. Where possible reduced the reliance on random size variation in brush dynamics d. Added sample 4 page PDF for download e. Removed original sample images (11) and replaced with just 4 enjoy!

  7. hello designers, after i have done a project i exported it and this is what happend (in picture) it is rasteraize and it is very clear when i export many shapes Can someone tells me what is the correct method to export a logo in affinity designer ? because i iam a new affinity user thanks.
  8. Textured Pencils Added a set of 30 Textured Pencil Raster Brushes to Resources Sample set as displayed These Brushes are a bit different from my usual offering. 1. They are small 2. Rely largely on setting the blend mode to Average (something I learnt from Sketchbook Pro!) 3. Resize as you wish 4. Brush test here Enjoy! Project Brush - Textured Pencil.zip Ink Sketch Brushes Added a new set to supplement these brushes from the Project Brush 13:Ink Painter Set (which is now complete)..a bit out of sync as I started them quite a while ago! A set of 35 Ink Sketching Raster Brushes to Resources Sample set as displayed 1. These are essentially the same as the Pencil Brushes but with adjustments to the brush dynamics and less texture..There are 2 other sets that supplement these in the InkPainter Project set (Ink & Linear) 2. Similar to brushes produced by Jake Parker for initial Inktober Project 2016 3. If you need textures/Patterns There is a set available Camouflage assets (here) ...which is also out of sync...and maybe in the wrong place! inkPainter - Sketching.zip
  9. So I want to make pixel art and I see the pixel persona being used for that but I don't want it to be raster I'd like to export my pixel art as an SVG (with no raster) so I was wondering if that was possible with something made in pixel persona. If not is there some sort of pixel tool for the normal designer persona? All I saw there was the rectangle tool and that'd be a pain to use for pixel art.
  10. If you read this solution: https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/a/79248 And watch this video: You'll see how effect this method is for converting Raster Pixel Art to Vector Pixel Art and I think it would be an amazing tool for Affinity Designer to have!
  11. Camouflage II Pattern Styles Created a new set of styles using some of the base textures built for the organic pattern Brushes Sets I and II using multi layer symbols to extend the effects 30 independent styles (set with maintain fill aspect ratio/wrap) File size is Larger than usual! ....Exported the .png but a t higher res (400dpi) Sample Sheet as below with .zip file for assets: Camouflage II Pattern Styles.zip
  12. Hiya folks! 🖖 I'm sure we're all dealing with the same stresses and frustrations brought on by the COVID-19 chaos (my country has been on full lockdown for a while now). It's important to stay busy to stop the cabin fever from kicking in, so I decided to create a little custom raster/pixel brush pack for Affinity apps - free for all! The brushes are not too complex, mimicking some traditional inking tools we all know and love, such as brush pens and fineliners. Perfect for those 'run-and-gun' illustrations where you just want to get to work and avoid the option-paralysis brought on by having to go through hundreds of custom brushes first. Included in the "Lockdown Liners" brush pack you'll find: 1 x HB Pencil (inspired by the Palomino Blackwing 602 pencil) 1 x Precision Eraser (inspired by the Tombow Mono eraser) 4 x Fineliners in Broad, Medium, Fine, and Ultra Fine (inspired by Pigma Micron technical pens) 1 x Brush Pen (inspired by the Tombow Fudenosuke Hard Tip brush pen) 1 x Gel Pen (inspired by the Sakura Gelly Roll) Fully compatible with Affinity Photo for desktop and iPad, and Designer's Pixel Persona for desktop and iPad. *Best used with a drawing tablet or iPad with Apple Pencil to take full advantage of the pressure sensitivity that the brushes offer. I'll likely make a few tweaks to the pack as I go along, but I'll be sure to update it on Gumroad when I do so that everyone who has already downloaded it can be notified. Hopefully you can create some cool work with the brushes to help pass the time while we're all stuck indoors - if you do, be sure to tag me on Instagram, http://www.instagram.com/christidutoit, I'd love to see what you make! Here's the download link to the brushes on Gumroad: http://www.gum.co/lockdownliners As mentioned, these brushes are totally free to download and use, just type $0 in the price tab and click "I Want This!". Stay safe out there! - Christi. ☠️

  15. Not a bug per-se, but there's a configuration error in Affinity Designer and Photo's raster brush settings while using "Velocity" to control brush size. I noticed this with previous versions and thought it might be addressed in 1.7, but unfortunately it's not. Using velocity to control the brush size is meant to change the brush size depending on the speed at which you draw. Think gel-pen - the quicker you draw, the thinner the line is, and the slower you draw, the thicker the line is. As it stands, in Affinity, it's more of a slow gradual build up in size regardless of the speed at which you draw - sometimes it doesn't really do anything at all to the size. Procreate's 'Gel Pen' brush is a great example of this, and so is ArtStudio Pro's brushes with velocity enabled. Clip Studio Paint also has it, which I used to demo the feature so that you can better understand what I mean. I've uploaded a quick screen recording of this to YouTube to better show what I mean (below). I've boosted the 'velocity' jitter significantly in CSP just to make it obvious, and I've maxed it out in Designer, but it isn't doing much. The velocity feature is super awesome for getting a digital brush to feel and behave 100% like a real ink pen. Would love to see this realised/fixed in a future update.
  16. Affinity Designer for Desktop feature requests: 1. Add a "Recents" or "Recent Files" panel/option to the Welcome Dialog to quickly open a recent project. 2. Add a tracing feature to create an outline or centerline vector image from an original raster image, with option to choose how many colors and nodes to use in creating the vector. I use Corel Draw to do this easily. This is especially useful for converting scanned or photographed hand-drawn text into a vector image. I'd love to have this feature in Designer.

  18. Hi! I've noticed quite an annoying bug when selecting and moving raster artwork within Affinity Designer's Pixel Persona. I've noticed this same issue in Affinity Photo, as well as the latest beta versions of Designer and Photo, and I have no clue why it happens. When drawing with something like the pixel brush or any brush that has a hard edge (with little to no anti-aliasing), the artwork blurs when being moved, but only when selected with a selection marquee tool, such as the lasso tool, first - see attached screen recording. This leaves a very visible difference between the selected and moved and unmoved artwork, and is even visible at 100%, which is obviously a big no-no for client work. Not totally unrelated, the selection path also seems excessively jagged on screen in comparison to something like Photoshop. I often use the selection tool when colouring my work, but the edge is noticeably jagged, even when zoomed out to 100% as well. I initially thought this may just be the pixel preview, but the jagged edge is very present - see attached screen shot, and it's also very present in the screen recording video too while making the selection path. As a final side note, a Wand Selection tool in Designer's Pixel Persona would be SOOOO helpful. Anyway, I'm not sure if these are bugs, but any advice or workaround for these things will be greatly appreciated! Screen Recording 2019-05-10 at 09.03.56.mov
  19. Hi, just wondering if it is better practise to create assets for use again as veftor or raster?
  20. Hi, I have cropped a photo to size. I have rasterised the layer, but when I'm using inpainting brush, it keeps taking data from outside the canvas, but as far as I know, it shouldn't, as the layer has been rasterised. The inpainting tool behaves as the layer has not been rasterised. Am I doing something wrong? APhoto Beta 1.7.0.188 I attach sample screenshots when I'm trying to inpaint building on the top right.
  21. At my current job we use Corel Draw in our graphic design department. I have switched to Affinity Designer and Photo for my personal work and these are my 5 features I use very often in Corel that I would love to see added. 1. Boundary Tool - Have a print/cut Roland printer and this tool is essential when creating a cut line around multiple objects. 2. Envelope Tool - Use this quite often for text effects. Converting to curves and manipulating from there works alright but Corel leaves the enveloped object still as text and can be still edited. 3. Flood Fill Tool - I'm able to replicate this using boolean operations but involves way more steps and occasionally will end up with odd quirks and unwanted results. 4. Blend Tool - I believe I have seen this is coming on the roadmap so hopefully soon 5. Raster to Vector Tracing - Also seen this is coming. Currently using Inkscape for this feature and then exporting/importing into Designer All this being said Designer is still one of the best applications I have used. How great this application already is has me very excited for future updates and enhancements.

  23. Project Brush Organics Re-visited Created some new brushes mainly for backgrounds..or anything else and decided to explore the new brush features in AD 1.7 a little deeper.. So... Added new Project Brush Organics Set (based on some of my first brush efforts but with new nozzles and edited brush dynamics) Containing..as usual: 30 new Raster Brushes using sampled image bitmaps rather than drawn vectors (mostly!) [ProjectBrush - Organics.zip] PDF sample sheet as attached Extras However, as the new brush engine is so versatile... you are presented with so many fantastic options that small changes create greater varied effects/results to brush appearance. Therefore instead of developing a 120 brush set (as before).. I have included: 30 additional Nozzles (.png) and image references to extend the options [Nozzle Extras.zip] Secondary Brush set which only includes single nozzle samples (as sample jpg) so you can see what effect they have alone. [Project Brush - Nozzle.zip] Templates/Presets Having the option of adding Sub-Brushes can make it a bit more time-consuming creating single brushes...So I added the option of using' Brush Templates' as a starting point...These simply have different configurations of nozzles at the parent and sub-brush level (makes things a bit quicker and saved on some repetitive actions!) [Project Brush - Brush Templates.zip] Duplicate the template then Switch nozzles from sample set or anything else created! Being able to duplicate from the context menu (right-click on brush) on brush panel makes this really easy.. PROJECT BRUSH -Organics 01 01.pdf ProjectBrush - Organics.zip Extras Elements Nozzles 30 additional Nozzles for brush variation add to templates/single nozzle brushes as required (have fun!) Nozzle Extras.zip Secondary Brush 30 raster brush set containing only single nozzle without sub - brushes Project Brush - NOZZLE BRUSH.zip Version 1.7 Brush Templates Use as basis for editing Project Brush - Brush Templates.zip
