  1. My Smashing Magazine article was out last Wednesday, coinciding with the presentation of the new tools Serif showcased at the first Affinity Live: Affinity Designer for iPad and Affinity Publisher. I had the honour and luck to be there with them and to be sponsored to create this detailed tutorial: "How To Create A Flat Vector Illustration In Affinity Designer." If you want to learn how to create this, check it out, and please, whatever your questions, ask there in the comments section on the article itself. Thanks! PS - Source file is provided for you all to explore Here the link: https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2018/07/flat-vector-illustration-affinity-designer/#top Cheers all and hope you enjoy it.
  2. Beside the actual series of Workshops for Affinity Photo on iPad I have published 46 videos about the desktop version. Hope you enjoy and find it useful. Markus
  3. Hi, I have a series of tutorials about Affinity Photo iPad in german on Youtube:
  4. Somos muchos los de habla hispana y en nosotros está generar contenido en nuestro idioma. Llevo poco más de un año usando Affinity Designer, puedo decir que ya no uso illustrator y muy de vez en cuando uso Photoshop. Me ha gustado esta herramienta y quiero compartir lo que he aprendido en este tiempo. Aquí el primer tutorial: En el video veremos el uso de la herramienta elipse para replicar el logo de radioHead; "Modified Bear", usaremos la pluma con polygon mode, repasaremos como pegar un objeto dentro de otro y explicaremos como funcionan los operadores. Link to YouTube Espero les guste. Saludo.
  5. Hi Everyone! Today I published first episode of 1-minute graphic tips series called "Minutnik graficzny" (graphic stopwatch) #1 How to set the contrast of a photo: I decided to make it in polish, because there is a lot of english content already, however if someone non-polish-speaking would like to check it, there are english subtitles. I believe there are some polish people on this forum, so I hope to get some feedback. I'm going to publish here updates, especially for episodes connected with Affinity sofware. Lets affinitize Poland!

    Madame Butterfly Poster

    Just recently completed another fun project using Designer exclusively. I had this concept for a Madame Butterfly opera poster for awhile but really didn't feel like my previous app was up to it so I put it on the shelf until a few months back when I decided to tackle it in Designer. The look and feel I was shooting for was sort of like those rich coloured album cover airbrushed illustrations from the 70's and 80's. Where everything is soft and saturated. I was really pleased with the outcome and glad that I waited to do this in Designer. Below are some screenshots, with more on my Behance site and there's also a short tutorial just uploaded by Affinity's Andy Capstick on the new Affinity Spotlight blog specifically on the creation of the eyes for this piece. Hope you like! https://affinityspotlight.com/article/the-eyes-of-a-butterfly-with-kevin-house/
  10. This video is an excerpt from my -soon to be launched- "Learn Affinity Designer Fast" e-course. The most complete and comprehensive course on Affinity Designer. In this video I'll show you how to customize the object defaults, which allows you to set the fill color, gradient, opacity and noise values. You can also set all of the variables for the stroke, including color, gradient, opacity, noise, style, width, cap, join, alignment, draw behind, scale with object, and pressure curve values. This includes using a brush stroke! Being able to set the defaults for your objects whether it is just for that document or globally for future documents, is a great time saver. Your workflow will be come more efficient and your creative juices can flow freely without getting bogged down in the details. Setting defaults is a great web design tool for all you app creators out there. Enjoy and happy creating! Jen
  11. Today we are looking at Tilt Shift: How it's done. The secrets behind it. The story of it's origin. Tilt Shift is a fun effect that is most often used in digital Software for Miniature faking. Make the world look like a Toy World. It's easy, fun and can be done with almost every photo that was taken from the right angle.

  12. Today I will show you how to create a cool looking 3D font effect. I will explain to you in detail how the 3D Font tool works and what the different settings are. After that we will paint in some more 3D details to make it look even better and create some overlaps that the software can not find on its own.

  15. A couple of days ago I finally received my copy of the Affinity Photo Workbook. Having read the first 240 pages I must admit that I am mostly disappointed. By purchasing the book published by the developers of Affinity Photo I hoped to gain some in depth insight into how Affinity Photo works and how I could apply the different techniques demonstrated in the book to my own projects. Sadly though this is exactly where the book fails. Because I know that simply telling you that the book "sucks" is not enough and certainly wont help you improving it I am going to give you a few examples why exactly it has been such a disappointing experience to me. My biggest issue: From page 120 onward you explain in depth how to move, nest, rename and otherwise manipulate layers. While I admit that this might be useful to some beginners I think anyone who is not a complete computer illiterate will figure this out within minutes. In fact when I started editing images it was immediately clear to me how to perform such basic layer actions that do not differ much from the basic concept of manipulating files and folders in any file explorer. On the other hand any information on how the different blend modes work is completely missing. I ask you, if we talk about the average person who want's to get into image editing, what would such a person typically need help with? Creating or renaming a layer or comprehending what a multiply, hard light or reflect blend mode does? Why are there layouts with keyboard short cuts but no explanatory chapter on blend modes? Again the question, what would I probably want to read a book for? To learn the keyboard short cut to invoke a certain command or to gain a better understanding of the concept of blend modes? If I read a book like this I expect to learn new techniques and I generally want to gain deeper insight on how a program like Affinity Photo works and how I can use the software for my personal work flow. But in the case of your book it has repeatedly left me with more questions than answers. Here is a list of examples where the book has left me with unanswered questions: On page 144 you explain how to control certain colour tones using a black & white adjustment layer and the blend mode overlay. Now maybe I'm the only person on earth who finds it confusing to use a black and white adjustment layer to change colour tones in a coloured photograph but fact is, I don't understand this technique and thus I'm not able to use this trick for my own photos. Unless of course I had exactly the same photo as in the book in which case I'd certainly be able to replicate the steps described. But in order to apply this trick to my images I would need someone to explain me what a black and white adjustment in combination with the overlay blend mode does and why it does this. The next example would be page 160 (Laying the tonal ground work) and following. Here you explain how to control tones with brush strokes, an empty pixel layer and the overlay blend mode. And again you fail to explain why it does what you describe. But at least this one is not as bad as the case mentioned above because here I can actually use the technique for my projects (with the slight inconvenience that I use a technique I don't really understand). In other words, if someone watched over my shoulder while I am applying this technique and asked me why I had chosen the overlay blend mode I would not be able to answer the question because frankly I don't know, I just copied the steps from the book without knowing better. Another one: On page 228 you show a way to eliminate or at least reduce a colour cast in the sky by using a black and white adjustment layer (again in a coloured photograph) and the multiply blend mode. Once more you fail to provide any background information on why and how this combination works. Without this information the process remains a mystery to me and I'm probably never going to be able to use this technique for my own photos. I just don't feel comfortable to work with tools I don't understand. I could mention further examples but I suppose by now you are getting the point. Now one could always ask why I didn't search the web for more information. And while this is of course true and I also do this on a regular basis I have been asking myself why on earth I'd read a book that makes me search the web for basic knowledge about the described techniques. Didn't I buy the book exactly because I wanted to gain more in depth knowledge about image editing with Affinity Photo? Wouldn't I be better off not buying the book at all and simply asking the search engine of my choice (which is completely free by the way)? But enough criticism for now. Let's also mention a few positive aspects. Apart from the missing information as described above the texts are very understandable (even for non native English speakers like me) and the book looks generally very professional. I've also found the selection of images and projects to be well chosen, the projects are interesting and the photographs are of high quality. While reading the book one immediately notices that the authors not only know what they are writing about but it's also clear that the persons involved in the creation of the book are passionate for photography and Affinity Photo in particular. In other words: If you added the missing background information on how and why certain techniques work as well as a comprehensive explanation on the various blend modes available this could become one of the best books about image editing in general and Affinity Photo in particular on today's market. Oh and one last thought: If you don't want to clutter the book with too much information and avoid overtaxing some readers why not provide an appendix with additional background information (be it in the book or as downloadable resource) for those who desire to better understand how and why certain techniques work? And if you plan to improve the book and add the requested information it would be a very nice gesture of you to make this additional information available to the buyers of the initial issue as well (as a download for example). P.S. I opened this thread here because I couldn't find any other, more suitable place. Please feel free to move the thread if necessary. And sorry for having created such a lengthy post
  16. The people of School of motion are a big fan of affinity and today they posted this very detailed and wonderful tutorial on how to export from Affinity Designer® to Adobe® After Effects@. It may seem a little bit cumbersome, but I think it's worth it...specially if you try to avoid illustrator. The link: https://www.schoolofmotion.com/blog/save-affinity-designer-vector-files-after-effects Have a nice one! B.
  17. I'm not quite sure if I can explain this in a way that makes much sense so I'll let the screenshots do more of the talking; what I'm trying to do is use the "subtract" function to create and effect on the "Neon Dreams" piece similar to that of the other screenshot, with the transparent lines, I don't want to make it too complicated so I hope the screenshots help make everything make sense. I know what I have to do but it seems that I can't because I'm trying to subtract an existing compound? Am I doing something wrong here? Thanks. Dylan

  23. Hey there fellow Affiniti´es.. So I need help to identify a specific way of drawing/painting... I´ve been all over youtupe and other sites to find a way to create photorealistic images in Affinity Designer But so far the closest i´ve got to it, is a cartoonist/manga related style which i don't really dig. I would like to create some wonderful "paintings" with lots of color and details... and i only have affinity and and very old photoshop. In my picture below i have illustrated what my current lv in affinity is (the blue worm, ps don't mind the watermark)... * basically just a lot of gradients and time. And what i would like to achieve ( the shine and effects on the blood angle.) And due to my "process" i would like to learn to use affinity... but atm my skills in photoshop makes it really hard stay in affinity... And the time i spend in photoshop is absurd due to corrections of lines, layers and details. and it is here affinity shine+ i would like to save that time. So does do YOU know of any tutorial or other ways i could learn to use ,to create Photorealistic picture in affinity like the blood angle?? any other advices? sorry if i seems confused, but i´ve spent a lot of time reseasing this..i have no clue, as to how i can leave the toonish style behind. Besides using brush strokes, which i don't fully understand. And honestly i feel that it would be the same as working in photoshop).
  24. Is there a tutorial anywhere on using Affinity Photo to print the inkjet equivalent of darkroom test prints? That is, using a small sheet of paper to get print variations on a selected area of an image. I want to make some A2 prints on my Epson P800 printer. My tests so far have not been what I wanted, although my monitor is properly profiled and I’m using the correct ICC profile for the paper. So, rather than continue to waste ink and paper, I was hoping to use a key area of my image and print a strip series of variations on e.g. an A4 sheet to decide on my best settings. Thanks!
  25. Hi everyone, I just wanted to let people know that I've put up a blog article explaining what layer blend modes are, how they are grouped together and what they do. I also give an visual example of the different blend modes so you can see the effect they have on your images. Here's the link - https://theeagerlearner.com/your-big-friendly-guide-to-layer-blend-modes/ Hope it's of help to you, Simon
