  1. Hi all,I really like Affinity Designer but the more features arrive, the more complicated is becomes.. There is a new challenge for me and Affinity Designer for which I would need your help and ideas: Creating a mermaid digital paper as a seamless repeating pattern. I got an at least basic version of the attached one (no glitter, no lightning etc.) but due to the shadows it wasn't seamless on the vertical. If seamless isn't possible due to the different lightning effects of my sample picture attached, how could I achieve anyway the digital paper mermaid look of my sample? Important: It definitely has to be scalable vector, no copied images etc.. Thanks a lot in advance. I'm looking so forward to your help and your ideas! Foxi
  2. Hey all, https://tileable.co have made all their textures free in 512px resolution! There is quite a big library to choose from which is great for new projects with no budget
  3. A recent post in the Questions forum asked about seamless tiling. There are also video tutorials available, such as the one on Seamless Textures. I describe here how I created a seamless tile to form a repeatable background to the pages on one of my web site. The website was for a wood, so the starting point for the background image was a photo of the autumn woodland floor covered in leaf litter: This image will not tile seamlessly. The first step is to apply the Affine transformation (Filters > Distort > Affine) with an offset of 50% in each of the x and y axes. This gives: The left and right edges of this would now tile seamlessly (as would the top and bottom. But there is the mismatch along the central axes. To get rid of these I placed images of single leaves onto these axes. The leaves were scanned on a flatbed scanner; the individual images edited to remove the white background and they were then saved as .png images. The leaves were placed onto my background using File > Place, and then resized to some extent to get the right scale, and they were randomly rotated. This has now masked all the non-seamless axes. The Affine transform is now reversed, using the same procedure as before ( (Filters > Distort > Affine) with an offset of 50% in each of the x and y axes) This has now created a seamless tile. However, in this example, The placed leaves are conspicuously around the edges, so I added some more at random points over the rest of the image: I could have added more, but I chose to stop there. This image now forms a seamless tile. To demonstrate the effect, I placed four copies of the image together to show how they tile seamlessly (or they would do if I get my placing more precise). In this example, I started off with a background of leaf litter on the woodland floor. I could have started with a blank image and placed leaf images all over it to hide any background. Then I would begin the procedure as above. This would probably have been better since there would be no distinction between the the various leaf images; they would blend in better. However, for my purposes, I liked the original woodland floor image. For a background page for a website, I faded the image above to as not to be too intrusive. I used this technique for the Friends of Coombe Wood web pages. (Apologies for not updating it. I have been unable to visit for the last few months.) John
  4. Hi all, I just had a quick look at photo beta and it looks great! There are two features supported in Krita which I think would make fantastic additions to both photo and designer: 1: Tile mode (or "wrapping" mode). In this mode you can see the image/canvas repeated at least once beyond each edge and corner, and you can just draw off the edge and the drawing automatically wraps around to the other side. Ideally most of the built in effects and filters would also work properly with tiled mode, such as blurs, bevels, shadows, etc. This would be superb for making or working with seamlessly tiled backgrounds and game textures. 2: Infinite canvas. When you find yourself running out of space at one edge of the canvas, this feature would make it very easy to extend the canvas just in that direction. Cheers, Jules
  5. Hello, I use Affinity Designer 1.5.5. I was creating a seamless pattern. But what irritating was there were tiny gaps between my pattern tiles. I arranged them using snapping. It also happened if I arranged it manually by incrementing the X or Y of the tiles. I attached the pattern that I am talking about. How can I get rid of this issue? And one other thing. Every time I create a perfect square artboard let's say 400px X 400px, and I start drawing on it. Once I export this particular artboard, the size in export menu can't be perfect square anymore like 400px X 400px. There must be one pixel or two more added mysteriously like 402px X 400px. Even if I just draw a really small thing in the middle of this artboard. The artboard would never be perfect square again. Is that normal?
  6. is there a way/feature to make a seamless pattern? like this video:
  7. I do a lot of seamless tiles and was wondering if there is a wrap around paint and/or draw function somewhere. I have an old program called PhotoSeam that does a great job, but it is limited to around 300px. That was fine when I was making for online use only, but now I do mostly for print and could use it larger. Vector would be cool and extremely useful, but mostly I use my photos. thanks
  8. Filters I propose 2 texture filters for 3D: 1) Image offset filter on the x and y axes. To make seamless textures manually. 2) Filter to make seamless textures automatically. (These filters exist in other publishers, but none of them allow you to do this in 32-bit mode, which would be to retrieve as much data as possible from textures that are then converted to black and white). Then 2 others quite classical: 1) Mosaic filter (with square pattern, hexagon ...) É) Pixelization filter Then to finish 2 functions: 1) A function to count the colors of an image 2) A color palette generator created from an image. I've never seen this function elsewhere. This will create a color palette based on our images. With the choice of the number of output colors, the possibility of choosing the tones (for example, the green or blue tones), to sort the pallet in different orders; Tones, colors ... The possibility of exporting palettes to other software, such as 3D software: 3D Coat, Subtances ... Thank you for your attention.
  9. Once again back to the free Gimp for seamless textures. as well as edge detect. Both suck in AP and AD. affine is too convoluted. Too many steps for a good result. in Gimp one click( maybe two) and you have a seamless texture. the edge detect has some choices unlike the bare minimum in AD AP. Come on guys you can't do better than the free gimp why not check their filters (code). Rant over returning you to your other posts.
  10. The Symbols Tool makes it soooo easy to create seamless repeating pattern in AD. I've published a tutorial on YT where I explain how to draw a simple chain link seamless repeating pattern. Keep on drawin'
  11. I am working on pattern design and want to know if there is an offset filter in Affinity Designer. I know you can offset in Photo but I need to be working with vector images, not raster images. If theres no offset filter, is there another way to offset images? If not, is this something that could possibly be in a future update for Designer? The program is great and would love for it to replace Illustrator!

  13. I'm doing a lot of 360 degree panoramas. For me the offset filter in Photoshop is very important to shift the equirectangular panorama "around". Also an absolut feature would be a function to match the color and contrast of the left and right side of the picture to get a seamless transition. Gregor
