"Baking" adjustment layers

Recommended Posts

Is there any way to "bake" an adjustment layer preserving the ability to export the image as a vector? Currently, applying an adjustment layer to a layer means that you can only export a raster image - it would be interesting to apply an adjustment layer (colour adjustment, for example) to shapes and so be able to export them as svg or pdf.

I believe if you click the Merge button inside any Adjustment layer's options panel, it will apply the adjustment to the layer it is affecting, and rasterize it if needed.

if you have a vector image and add an adjustment layer (that does not even do anything, like an unmodified curve added by accident) your whole document get´s rasterized 

 

he means like:

if you have a curve that modifies color x y z to be color x+2,y-3,z , AD should go through the document and change to color of the vector object to x+2,y-3,z and keep it´s vector appearance so to say 

 

..currently it always needs to rasterize

I know this is an old thread, but I'd like to express my vote for this feature as well.

 

Adjustment layers on Affinity Designer are nice, but we can only merge them with pixel layers. I miss the ability to merge them with any kind of layer (text, curve, etc) so I can reuse the new colors elsewhere in a much more direct way and without cluttering my files with a bunch of identical adjustment layers.

Yes, that flattens all adjustments and creates a pixel layer. However, I still have to manually sample the result with the Color Picker tool, which can become a burden when I have multiple gradients. It would be better if Affinity Designer could do this for me while keeping my vectors intact, something similar to Illustrator's Recolor Artwork.
