  2. I Have added a limited number of seamless (hopefully) pattern assets (30 in total) (import to asset Library) as a supplement to the Texture Paint Brushes: and as a working asset library for creating vector patterns. (Found these really useful while working on the on-going Inktober artwork Conversions ) Usage 1. The patterns can be complex inside the rectangular containers but they can be broken apart for other use. (Like spreading a texture inside another object/masking/ pattern making) 3. Tiled patterns (They should snap together) 4. Re-colouring (select internal groups in layer panel to re-colour collectively) [not 100% success can be a bit of trial and error!] 4. As symbols should you choose to add to symbol panel Hope you find them useful! TxP Ptn TxP Pattern Assets 1.pdf
  3. 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!

  8. Is there any way to extract textures from the brush files? I love the Daub brushes but some of them have errors in the textures. For example the Watercolor blender. At least one of the 3 brush nozzles is creating square artifacts. Its a shame because it would otherwise be a great brush. It would be great if I could extract it, fix it, and replace it.
  9. Would like to see a Texturizer filter and the abllilty to use PSD images as added textures similar to those in PS and Elements.I apply stock textures such as canvas and/or custom textures like wood or foliage to creative images. Also, control of the effects could be improved. For example, the drop and inner shadow effects would be much effective if they could 'fade' like black to transparent gradient. I think the grid that appears with the perspective correction tool should be fixed rather than move with the adjustment to act as vertical reference lines. I've cut the PSCC cord and think AP is a strong challenger but, as with all things, it could be improved a bit. Thanks for providing the opportunity to suggest and request improvements.
  10. What I'm wondering is if I create a macro that adds a bitmap texture will that texture be exported in the macro if I export it?
  11. 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
  12. Hi very new to Affinity recently upgraded from Serif Draw - I have some glitter jpg files that I use as text fills these were easily imported into the swatch board as textures in the previous Serif version, but I cannot work out how to add them using Affinity? Whenever I try it is only searching for Affinity files and not allowing me to add jpg files? Any ideas please?
  13. Hi everyone, im new to this forum and also to using affinity designer. I would like to get some feedback on using vector textures. Im trying to create tshirt designs and want to use a vector texture on my text, however im unsure how to add the texture only to the text itself and not the surrounding area. I also want to be able to knock out the texture from the lettering so that the shirt colour will come through( ie the texture will reveal background colour). Any help would be much appreciated, Thankyou. jimmy.

  15. 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 :>)

  17. I've been collecting links to various resources useful in the field of architectural rendering and visualisation and I'd like to share them with the community. There are quite a few on my list as it has been compiled over some years. These are content related: cut out people and objects, vegetation etc: These are tutorials and example specific to architectural presentations: And these are more generic stock resources:
  18. I´ve been developing this site where you can download cutout images of trees with transparent background. All the pictures are taken by me with a professional camera. Hope you enjoy it. Please feel free to comment. Any suggestion will be appreciated.
  19. Hello there, When creating new brushes or modifying existing ones, how is it possible to browse existing textures to use? A. set texture launches file browser, textures are nowhere. B. add nozzle, the same. C. Bitmap fill, the same. (by the way, bitmap fill is in a tool named gradient? really?? why not merging tools and adding tolerance to gradients as well? well.) Wish i am missing something and this is not a giant developer, Ups, we did it again. thanks for replying, in advance.
  20. I did an illustration in acrylics more than twenty years ago and just decided to recreate it as a vector image. It took me half the time to make it. I'm thoroughly convinced! Kevin

  22. Sup people! I've been checking out this application and I'm really impressed with what it can do. I've been porting over my Photoshop work flows, and it has handled every task I've thrown at it. And like everyone else, I'm just looking for a little help. I've been trying to figure out the layers/channels tools in Affinity, and how to use them. I'm an environment artist and this is specific to my terrain workflow. During the production process, I've always taken my textures for a few passes through Photoshop. As part of my editing, I would use masks that I've created to edit specific areas of my diffuse texture. Example: Copy my masks into the alpha channel and start working with "Adjustments", "Layer Effects", etc. Thing is, I can't seem to get Affinity to perform the same tasks. I've checked a few of the Channels/Masks tutorials, but I just can't seem to find what I'm looking for. Either that, or I'm missing something. I have provided a screenshot of the WIP terrain, as well as the diffuse texture and masks. Any help would be appreciated.
  23. While procrastinating for loads of work that I should've done like yesterday... I started to sketch this guy out... until the point it got finished haha... and that's the magic of procrastination... made with Designer :) Hope you like it!
  24. 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.
