  1. Hello, I never worked with smart layers before. I'm working on a psd file that has smart layers. I need to place some images in/within a smart layer. I managed to do this with one image but now with the second layer I can't replicate the same thing with another image. See the screenshot and the layer outlined in red (Image-1). How do I get the same with the layer (Image-2) beneath it, so that the Image-2 and Double Click Here is also filled up with the image I want to place in the layer. I tried looking at the history and tried copy and pasting the image on the layer but I can't get to the same result as it is with the Image-1 layer. Thanks.
  2. Affinity Photo. / Designer Question is; how to create an effect that resembles adobe photo’s smart layer. Specifically; to create a t-shirt mock up template. In adobe you make a smart layer that holds a mesh adjustment, with a text layer that allows changing copy, and the base layer of the model in a t-shirt. note; Holds the adjustment, so the adjustment is there and will be applied to anything in its folder, thus leaving the text/object free to be changed without changing the mesh. In Affinity I have found no way to create a layer that will hold the mesh adjustment = without rasterizing the text. and importing an adobe file redefines the "smart layer" / since there is no actual equivalent in Photo. WHY is this important? the mesh makes the text / or graphic wrap to the wrinkles and curves and around the body - so to speak, of the shirt. We are talking about doing “a step beyond” displacement and ambient occlusion. This forces one to remake the mesh for each change. = now I am thinking to try to apply the mesh to a gray layer, and change the layer blend mode, = if there were a Style that was a mesh, that would be similar, i think. any ideas on this? :blink:
  3. Hello, Affinity Photo already offers tons of great stuff, enough for me to switch to it from Photoshop. What I'm missing (or just couldn't find a way) are smart Layers. With that I mean a layer, which content I can edit in separate window, save it and the changes of the layer will be shown in the original files. I'm looking forward to what Affinity team will brings us in the future :)
