  1. Hello again! I was given a hand-drawn logo to make into a digital EPS. I used the pen tool to create a black outline. Now I want to fill in with colour and some gradients, but I won't let me. I searched but couldn't find a solution. I've included screenshots to show you the layers(a few of them). Thanks so much!
  2. maybe I'm missing it, but is there an option to open a JPEG, or bitmap image and trace,or convert it to a vector file for further editing? If not there should be one, it would be a great option. even if it had only a few modes like black and white, and 5 color it would make me convince me to convert from adobe illustrator
  3. When drawing on top on an image (photo) - something I do quite a lot for weeks - I toggle displaying of the photo on and off. I partly trace the contours manually but I also recreate the texture and characteristics of the underlying layer with vectors. I compare my work with the photo constantly in the process. When I have many layers and expanded layers with groups the photo layer is out of reach - and to hide or show it I must scroll scroll scroll to reach it. Feature request: I suggest instead that one layer can be set as a reference layer than can be displayed or hidden w
  4. Is there any tool in Affinity Designer for tracing an image like that in Adobe Illustrator?
  5. (This is as well a workaround for auto tracing, until Affinity Designer will include it in an upcoming version.) In this tutorial I will show you how you can prepare a scanned handdrawing with Affinity Photo for bitmap tracing, to get a result with smooth lines and less speckles. As Affinity Designer is currently not shipped with a built in feature for tracing bitmaps, I will use InkScape for vectorization of the image.
  6. It will be an awesome feature if you put a "Selection method according to attribute" which means when we need to Select Same color (Fill or Stroke), same opacity, or same appearance. It is so much helpful after tracing an image to select a range of colors. When working on a flyer or packaging design for production selecting similar color or select strokes that have same thickness or fill color to change together all those needs select with attribute option. Consider a special tool for those selection purpose with a bunch of option to rectify and narrowing selection range or Add all
  7. 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.
  8. Hi, I'm trying to do some trace work. I would love to able to open a new view on a seperate monitor, yet omit the layer I am tracing from on the new view and monitor in order to see the final result as I work. Perhaps I've missed something and this is already possible. Or is this something that could be achieved with a workaround perhaps? Any and all advice would be great. Thanks in advance.
  9. 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 re
  10. Would be extremely useful to be able to set just a key shortcut (e.g. F1, F2, B, N, M, etc.) for viewing only a specific layer. Why would users need this? It would be extremely useful when tracing images so we can go back and forth between the source/reference image and what we are illustrating/vectorizing. It can be useful for users that draw after reference photos, so they need to see the reference photo instantly and go back to drawing. Why only one shortcut? / You can't just go and put the reference layer as the top layer and hide (uncheck) and show (check
  11. I have this very cool app called Art Rage. In that app, you can trace an image, and in that process your pencil, pen or brushes can actually be set to sample the color from the image you're tracing. I would love to see that function in upcoming versions of Affinity Designer. So, whether you're using the Pen, Pencil or Vector Brush tool (or even the shape tools), once this function is enabled it can pick up the color from the layer(s) beneath, so that you didn't have to constantly had to set the color in the color panel. The color simply is set automatically and one just have to draw and the co
  12. Will Affinity Designer ever offer the possibility to Outline Strokes (not only for strokes made with the "Basic" set of vector brushes, but for any other vector brush, too) and / or the possibility to Trace an Image? This is what I miss most in Affinity Designer, compared to Illustrator. I can't imagine working with vectors without having these essential tools. ☹️ Just would like to know if there are any plans to make this and when. Thank you.
  13. I am trying to bitmap a photo but I cannot find the option to do so. Is this a feature afinity photo or afinity designer offers?
  14. Hi folks. I can use the pen tool now, after the bezier game! I thought I'd put my copy of AD to proper use, illustrating that is, not just page layout mode. All this despite 'losing' a borrowed drive for a Tevion tablet. Never mind being unable to find my Epson scanner power supply...any way this is for you the AD community, the AD Team at Serif labs (And the Drawplus team for getting me hooked on DrawPlus in the 1st place). A big thank you goes out to you CartoonMike and that awe inspiring tutorial earlier: for pushing me over the edge and well into the abyss of time, know as cre
  15. Whats the fastest way to trace and colour in please. Thanks for you're time in advance..
  16. Hi. I know I have seen posts in the past requesting a Trace bitmap feature but they are older posts and I am wondering if this will be an added feature. I am using Inkscape at the moment but it crashes often since the Windows 10 upgrade. When it does the autosave feature does not work and I lose the project I am working on. Very frustrating. I have been test driving your Affinity Designer Beta for windows and so far I am very pleased. I would like it to replace my use of Inkscape but without the trace feature I would still need Inkscape. I am hoping you have this in the works, even if it is do
  17. Hi I'm only a newbie but is there any way to convert a bitmap image to a vector.
  18. I am not very into vector and AD was like a magic wand to me. All of a sudden I knew how to create vectorised artwork on the fly, so to speak. I thought. Then I was asked to work on a project which would have to be vector. I imported a logo I had made earlier and exported as an eps-file. All vector. I made an elegant brush which I thought was vector. And when it all looked as I wanted it to in AD, I exported it as .eps and sent it to the print shop - and was asked why I sent them a bitmap when they wanted vector. After lots of tearing my hair out accompanied by swearing in multiple lang
  19. Just downloaded and started testing app and couldn't find a clone tool (in pixel mode, not vector); also no tracing utility (vector) or way to convert bitmap to vector. Use these modes a lot when working with Photoshop, CorelDraw and PhotoPlus.
  20. Will there ever be an Image Trace feature in Designer, such as is available in Adobe Illustrator? I frequently have to redraw bitmaps in vectored format. Illustrator's tracing feature makes that very easy. It sure would be nice to be able to do it in Designer.
  21. Let's say I had and image of a sports car and I wanted to get the outline on that sports car in the form of a shape. I know you can bend and warp the shapes but some of the more complex curvature and angles are slightly complicated. Im able to curve the shape but it's never how I want it.
  22. Hei! I have a problem with tracing with pen tool: - some traced letters turned out fine, but N has problems with filling. There is something that I don't understand how to do. - how can I have the inner sides of the letters with no fill? Thank you in advance for answering :) I'm adding the file aslo. DSC_8833.psd
  23. I need to have a tracing feature added in order for me to totally quit Adobe. I often draw my art on paper then scan it in and trace in AI in order to tweak it using vectors. I'd definitely love to see this feature added to Designer. :rolleyes:
  24. I'm loving getting started with Affinity Designer. It's an incredible product. A question: How can I convert a bitmap (png) image into a vector graphic. In other words how can I trace a logo displayed as a solid color in a bitmap? I'm sort of doing it using masks but suspect that there is a better way to go. Any help will be gratefully received. Thanks Martin
  25. Please let us know if the affinity software is better to use than photoshop& or coral . We need to trace our creation's outlines & fill in them different fabrics,textures.
