do they work for AP for ipad?

 

 

  • Raster ones will work, but currently Nozzle Texture is not yet supported, so effects may change.
  • Vector ones are not supported yet.
  • Papers are not supported yet.

Hi, 

 

How do you make sure you are operating in 16- or 32-bit mode in Affinity Designer? :)

 

/Kate

 

Document Setup > Colour tab

 

You get there when you click on 'nothing' (off canvas or something where nothing is) with the move tool.

All Artboards follow that colour setting.

Oh, and has anyone got any suggestions for how to use the papers? What kind of mode to use for best results? 

 

Loving this. Just bought and playing around! 

 

 

 

Hi!

 

Papers are easy: just drag them on the canvas and stretch the rectangle to fill the area.

You can also use the Fill Tool to resize the pattern, which is seamless.

 

This is an illustration I made using the DAUB Essential set

I wanted a rough look, so I picked a suitable paper from the collection (Paper 40) and inverted it

Then changed the blending mode to Colour Burn, to darken some areas and lift up random "speckles"

About modes... It depends on the effect you want to reach.

I tend to use Overlay and Soft Light but sometimes (like the example above) you need to try in order to find the perfect match :)

Vector brushes won’t work in Photo, but Designer can use both types (vector and raster).
