Hello everybody,

 

I'm relatively new to Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo and I'm just sitting in on those very useful programmes (before, I figured out Photoshop as a layman). Now, I want to add linear transparencies to one of my pictures on a flyer on two borders but I just can add it on one of the four borders of my picture. Every time when I click somewhere else on my picture, I just can work on one and the same tranparency. Well, is there any possibility to add another linear one on the same picture? I also know, that there are alternative possibilities, e.g. to add a circular transparency or so, but I rather need the linear ones.

 

Thank you!

Thanks so much ... as I'm figuring out all those features on my own I even sometimes get stuck into the basics ;-)

 

I'm not so sure it is a basic. I've been using AD several hours a day for almost 4 months. Been working w. transparency and opacity a lot recently. Never occurred to me that I could put a transparency gradient on an object, and group it to itself so the group can have another transparency. Way too easy :)

My thoughts too. A group of one seems very counter-intuitive, but doing it that way is so much better than rasterizing the first result.

Me too! I suppose this could be extended to a group of one of a group of one & so on.

 

Mind blown! (Although for me this isn't much of an explosion anymore...)
