What sort of problems are you having with PhotoPlus? I still have PhotoPlus X8 installed and have done a few video tutorials for it. They are quite old but they are still on YouTube. If I can help, I will try.

i will check this out,considering ive been using X4 for years right now all of this is so overwhelming to me right now

as far as X4 goes i have it both on my laptop & desktop,on the desktop its working like it always has,no problems where im having problems is on my laptop when i get a Windows update it makes X4 not wont to work right some features now dont work the biggest thing it does it dont matter which brush i use any lines end up being very jagged or broken sometimes

then filling in sometimes its like im using the feather brush when im not even then its almost see thu i may have to fill the samething 2 or 3 times before its soild again

it dinnt start doing this stuff till a few months ago as i say ive been using X4 for years ,still do im fixing to figure out this affinity both laptop/ipad

from what ive seen its pretty cool

hi all

i have figured out how to get my X4 into this affinity

what used was photoshop it was all there ,all my layers the way i named them everything ,it worked just like a charm

i started messing around with it yesterday ,its a little overwhelming right now .both on my laptop & Ipad .i guess im used to using x4,the way this is made up now they are grouped together for the most part

to me its kinda the same but differnt ,its got some added stuff ,some stuff its missing the 2 things its missing is the the deform tool & the line tool,which i use both of these alot

and the way it saves im used to saving in jpeg this saves in png that what i have found out so far

i see i have some learning to do ,i think its going to be the way things are now grouped together now thats going to be my bigthing right now

i have looked at this stuff that was posted on this the ones ive really looked at is the setup on affinity ive not tried to make anything yet

to show you some of the renders i do

this picture was hand drawn with wacom tablet on a Hp laptop with windows 10 ,using serif Photoplus X4

As for the "deform tool & the line tool" I haven't used PhotoPlus for a while but from what I can remember the features of the Deform are now part of the Move Tool in Affinity Photo. As for the Line Tool, there may not be something quite like it in AP (yet) but I wouldn't be surprised if a tool like the Pen Tool couldn't do some of the functions as it has a Line Mode and other features. Affinity Designer also has a Pencil Tool which might also have some Line Tool features

You need to bear in mind that Serif just starting out on this Affinity journey. Only up to v2, they got to v18 with PhotoPlus and I know they added new features with each major update. So, Affinity Photo, Designer and Publisher will no doubt work in the same way, in that new features will be added with each new version update.

May be best to get all 3 apps (in the next sale) and then have the Studio link, where you can move a project between all 3 apps.

I like the image that you drew. Maybe more a project for Designer rather than Photo. When Serif did PhotoPlus they didn't have a Designer type program. Now they do have Designer, they may have spread the design tools about the apps. I do not use Designer much so can't really say if what you need is in Designer, but wouldn't be surprised if they are.

hi all

i guess my thing is im used to using X4 so its going to take me a while to get used to it

i have been messing around with some of the how-tos the one im been is the fake galaxy i had to do the starfield twice ,i had a bunch of interuptions when i was doing it the other day

so i finally got that part,in a bit im going to do the swril part again, so far its no looking so bad as far as using anything else other than photoplus i tried some of those others its what works for me ive tried to use draw plus i never could figure it out,then was free download for using it,everything i did with any of them just turns out wrong or just plain old bad

so the messing around ive been doing with it,its differnt animalfor sure ive already figured out some of it like the line tool for say i just have to go about it a differnt way now

its cool though

im going to check out this thing on jpeg might be the way im doing new documents ,the old way it just had that one page with this newer way you have several differnt ways of doing it now

like i said ive got some learning to do

Yes they did, DrawPlus which was the equivalent of ADe.

Yeah, sorry forgot about that one. I never got on with it. I think I went as far as version 6 or 7 before giving up with it and uninstalling it.

Affinity Photo 2 – Volume 7 - Beginners Guide 3

A Written Tutorial for PC, Mac and iPad

A Look at Child Layers

This tutorial is aimed at all users of Affinity Photo, no matter what version you use. Looking at moving the Layers up and down the stack in the Layer Studio. Either by a menu or by dragging and dropping the layers.

Mainly it’s a look at making and using Child Layers that are not Adjustment Layers (that was in the previous tutorial). So, looking at putting an image into a shape or text.

Finishing off with a look at why you should use a tutorial for the PC or Mac and adapt it for the iPad, or visa versa. To show this I look at the Arrange menu in PC and show where the same options are in the iPad.

I personally found PhotoPlus and Affinity very similar and didn't have too much hassle learning Affinity Photo. That said I do understand that people learn at different speeds, which is why I try and help with these tutorials. Almost all my tutorials are aimed at novice users and I try and explain as much as I can in an less techy way as I can.
