  1. At last I have started to create some assets to Give Back to the Affinity Community! This is a HEFTY style set of brilliant 300 DPI A4 textures. The set is a hefty 810 megs in native Affinity Style format! Next I will separate them out to smaller sets to download from here. In the meantime they are available as a single file . So if you have a slow or low internet bandwidth you can download the smaller sets - so PLEASE do NOT complain about the huge size! I WILL upload and post the smaller sets later. I hope you enjoy them as much as I had when creating the textures! LyricsGirl :>) https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1WmFms5d6dDdUVOSHhqbzZfUms/view?usp=sharing

    I just made this pixel glitch macro pack and I wanted to share it with you guys. I hope you like it and let me know what you think about it.
  3. Hi! If you're having problems while importing resources in AD/AP for iOS try the following: 1) Put the .afbrushes in your iCloud folder 2) Exit AD/AP 3) Open Files App 4) Tap the iCloud folder you put these in 5) Tap the .afbrushes file to make it properly synced (the tiny "cloud icon" must disappear) 6) Open AD and attempt the import again This procedure should work fine. Cheers! Paolo

    Arrow Brush

    I have seen this topic come up pretty often and thought maybe I should post this resource here. I know some people need to have native vector arrow shapes in their work so I created a brush for that you can use until arrows are implemented fully in the the application. Just import them into your brush pallet. cheers :) Ronnies Arrow Brush set.afbrushes.zip
  5. Hi everyone, I recently wrote a post on my blog covering my workflow regarding the steps I follow when I'm editing a portrait. I also made available a PDF file with the same checklist I use so you can download it. The post is available both is Portuguese and English. [PT] http://blog.pedrosoares.photo/lista-de-tarefas-edicao-de-retrato/ [EN] http://blog.pedrosoares.photo/portrait-retouching-checklist/?lang=en There are also other articles talking about Affinity and other free resources. Let me know if it was useful. Cheers
  6. I just received my hardback copy of the Affinity Designer Workbook. It looks great. At the start of each chapter is the "Resource" box with a filename in it. Where are these files to be found!? The book says, I see green box with the filename in it... but no link info. I tried tapping on it with my finger, but nothing happened. :)
  7. Hey, please make the Resource Manager available to the Studio palettes for better integration in the UI. I need it right by my side all the time like the Layers and Pages panels. Please also add more options to pieces of information like Color Space, Transparency, Rotation, Dimensions, File Path etc already in the list. Cheers Benny

    The Box Set by Wren

    About The Box Set is hundreds of vector and raster brushes made for Affinity Photo & Designer. Each brush was handmade using real materials scanned at high resolutions and crafted to simulate real media. I wanted the origin of the brushes to have a heritage of the materials they are simulating. Scanning pools of watercolor, swatches of paint, and stipples of charcoal contributed to creating brushes with the same idiosyncratic material magic. My only request is that you take these brushes, with their clever names, as suggestions. They work superbly out of the box, but I strongly encourage you to adjust the sliders, rearrange or remove the textures, and discover how they can suit your hand(s). Make. Discover. Repeat. Cheers and happy art making, -Jef (WREN) RASTER BRUSHES For use in Affinity Photo and Designer. The blending brush in the Oil Set is the only one exclusive to Affinity Photo. DRAFTING INK OIL Oil Brush Dynamics Most oil brushes have blending built into pen pressure. With a single brush and hue you can adjust the luminosity of the stroke- giving it an oily blend. The Brush's color in the example above is the color of the background. A normal pressure gives you the hue without any lightening or darkening. WATERCOLOR ACRYLIC VECTOR BRUSHES For use with Affinity Designer Only. Pen & Ink Charcoal & Graphite Sumi-E Painterly Drips Handlettering LINKS The Box Set
  9. I while ago I purchased the Affintiy Photo Workbook and have been happily going through the exersizes - downloading the DPIs/Resources as I go along (using https://affin.co/<resource name>). However, today (30 Oct) i am unable to download any resources. Internet etc is fine and I am working on 100MB connectivity. Ive never had any problems before. Does anyone have any suggestions.
  10. Ok, I downloaded affin.co/searchthewoods file to work on the project. There are 8 documents in a file, however, NO SNAPSHOTS! The manual tells me to open a snapshot with the forest image... THERE ISN'T ONE IN THAT FILE. IS IT ONLY ME WHO HAS NO IDEA WHERE TO FIND ALL THOSE SNAPSHOTS THAT ARE REFERRED TO IN ALL PROJECTS? Yes, I download the file that is referred to at the beginning of each chapter, but then there is a reference to snapshots AND THEY AREN'T IN THE FILE! WHERE IS THE REST OF RESOURCES? It says in the manual: " You can get all the resources that are referenced in this project from: https://affin.co/searchthewoods.... HOWEVER, I personally was unable to find ALL of the resources there! And the same thing for all projects...VERY FRUSTRATING, GUYS!!!! I WASTE SO MUCH TIME JUST LOOKING FOR ALL RESOURCES TO DO THE PROJECTS! SHOULD BE MADE A LOT EASIER TO FIND...

    Golden Ratio Template

    I'm sharing this template for golden ratio, original tutorial I followed was for Inkscape which I was previously using before falling in love with Affinity Designer. Original work is from Nick Saporito on youtube. Basically you use the set of "Golden Circles" to create an illustration by intersecting the different sizes of circles. Hope you guys enjoy using it for your own designs! golden-ratio.afdesign

    Material design asset pack

    Here is a collection of assets created from the material design sticker sheet obtained here: https://material.google.com/resources/sticker-sheets-icons.html Could use a little more work, but I've added constraints to the lists, UI bars, and tabs. Most of the shadows are currently bitmaps. I had issues with some text boxes becoming the wrong size when the group was turned into an asset, so artistic text is used in some places where a text frame would be more appropriate. I couldn't find a license anywhere for the sticker sheet, so feel free to modify and share or use however you want, however, please don't redistribute as an asset pack while charging a price (sharing for free is fine). If you want to share any changes/improvements, I'd appreciate it if you posted them to this thread. An example I quickly made with some of the assets is below. material_assets.zip
  13. Hi everyone! I'm excited to announce my newest project Affinicasts. What is it? Affinicasts features expert video tutorials and courses showcasing the Affinity-Serif product suite. Who is it for? Designers, Photographers, and anyone interested in these topics. Whether you're new to design or are migrating from another tool as a seasoned pro, Affinicasts teaches you all things Affinity-Serif. Not only do you learn more about the applications, but you also learn general design, typography, color, theory, and the history of graphic design through real-world courses and tutorials. What sets Affinicasts apart from other tutorials? With Affinicasts, we keep things simple. Whether it's demonstrating a new feature or sharing an idea to improve workflow, our aim is to convey exactly how things work when it comes to being creative with Affinity-Serif applications. Our videos and courses are delivered in 4k video quality with professional audio quality to boot. We narrate our entire process from start to finish within each video or course so that you can get context for how things work and the best way to go about doing them. Any assets and art generated during a tutorial or courses are freely available to pro and lifetime subscribers. We also offer unbiased feedback about features and how they compare to other design related tools in the space of design software. My long-term goal is to create a design-driven community where both existing and aspiring designers can come together and learn not only about Affinity-Serif software but about design in general. Future topics include design theory, designing for print, publication design (with Affinity Publisher), typography, and much more. Where can I find it? Affinicasts.com YouTube (all our free content is both on YouTube and the website) Facebook Twitter Instagram If you read this far, I look forward to any feedback you might have! I built the Affinicasts platform to help Affinity-Serif spread the word about how awesome their software is. We will be publishing new content every week so be sure to bookmark the site! I'm always happy to help out if you have questions relating to your own project(s) or how to accomplish something specific inside these programs. Feel free to reach out to me here or via our contact form.

    Free CG Textures

    http://www.cgtextures.com/ I have used this resource for years. They have a large, easily searchable catalog. I have never failed to find something I can use for a background, overlay, texture etc. With a free membership you get a much larger download limit. I find that I have never bumped my limit. Of course, with paid membership one gets an amazing download limit.
  16. I recnetly bought Affinity Photo and Designer, and been realy happy with my desicion. I love both of the products. I use Unity3D for most of my work, and it have this Assets Store built into it. It have tons of content, extensions, full games, all sort of resources. This thing really helps, and content makers make good money out of this store too. It would be awesome if Affinity products could also have similar store, where content makers can publish pre-built resources, which others can buy and use in their creations. These could be design templates, color packs, icon packs, vector shapes and whole lot of other stuff suppoted by Photo and Designer. Look forward for more great features in new versions :) // chall3ng3r //
  17. Hi, I have just purchased and installed Affinity Photo on my iMac (I have also the iPad version), and in Preferences/Shortcuts there are only a few shortcuts.

  23. Hi, I understand that the mesh warp tool has been listed on the roadmap for some time now and was curious when we would be seeing this addition in Affinity Designer. If it is already available could someone please point me in the right direction (tutorials, place in software, etc.). Thanks in advance!
  24. Hey guys! I find myself needing to use/edit a high quality world map for various projects. The maps I've found so far are really under the quality standard we put into the design, but I didn't find a good one. Does someone maybe know of a free vector world map or something like that somewhere? Would appreciate it. Thanks!
  25. Hi everyone I've done a macro with 3 elipses for dodge and burning like lightroom but in ap, one for dodge other for burn and another for contrast. How to use 1.import the macro 2. clic on the dodge elipse macro but ensure the fill color is white 3.clic on the burn elipse macro but ensure the fill color is black. 4.Clic on the contrast macro but ensure the fill color is white 5. Select the move tool [v] for modifying and moving the elipse. You can play with opacity for making stonger or softer the effect or even change the blend mode. The macros will generate an elipse with a name like dodge, burn and contrast for that reason you need to set the correct color fill before apply the macro, and the other reson is because affinity photo didn't allow me record fill colors with elipses. Enjoy :) D&B with elipses.zip
