[AP] Tile mode

Recommended Posts

I'm using Krita right now but as it's mainly a painting software I'm considering changing for Affinity products as they seem excellent.

 

There is a feature in Krita that I miss and though you are probably more focused on Photoshop functionality, that is a hell of a nice one to have:

 

It's the tiling mode.

 

Basically in krita you hit 'W' key and it tiles your canvas infinitelly, you can paint on any of the tiles and transition from one tile to the other.

 

It's an incredibly simple way of creating tileable textures or any other tiling image.

 

If the feature exists already in Photo, then please forgive my inexperience and be so kind to point me in the right track.

 

Thanks!

I think of both more as companions...than replacements IMO, each one excels in the area where the other seems to focus less (aka Painter vs Photoshop). I don't believe there's such a function in Photo.

I understand you but the feature set in Photo is much more geared towards what I do. Krita is a very good painting app and also does many other things well, Photo is way better at other things and probably can also paint well (I've seen your post about the brush strokes...)

 

I'm not much of a painter, but I did try painting with the mouse. I gave up as I rather scan my real hand paints and edit them. Editing stuff is harder with Krita and very easy with Photo.

Yep, I agree. (is just that I paint a lot  :) ). As an image editor, this one is superb. :)

Hi guys!

 

In AP there is an Affine Filter that is pretty refined (with mirroring options, rotation and offset obviously).

Anyway not yet available in Painting tools, I'd be very happy to see it exposed at certain point  :)
