Designer and Photo inner glow question

Recommended Posts

I was trying to simulate bubbles ... a very simply way (as I'm used to by photoshop) is to draw a circle object ... make the fill transparent and add "inner glow" as an effect ... while PS gives me this as expected:

I get this from Affinity (regardles wether Designer or Photo):

Is there any way to get the same result in Affinity? If yes: how? If no: why not? ;-)

And is there any suitable workaround? it's quite an unexpected behaviour in Affinity ... lack of filling should not afffect the effects ...
Maybe it's just me not getting it ...

Cheers, Timo

Give the shape a fill then reduce the Fill Opacity to zero in the FX dialogue


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

As a possible alternative, you can use a radial fill with the opacity at the centre set to zero - it gives you a bit more control over the lighting effect for a bit of that 3-D bubbly appearance:
