Cleaning Up Lineart in Affinity Designer

Recommended Posts

Hi Affinity Forum,

I am a noob coming in from the hand-drawing scene and would like to know how I would go about cleaning up a scan so only the solid black lines show, removing the visual imperfections such as dim hand smudges and such, with manually going over them? Is this feature possible in Affinity Designer or is it only possible in Affinity Photo? 


Thankyou in advance

Affinity Designer is my spirit animal

If you're asking if manual cleaning with raster tool set of a bitmap image is possible in Designer the answer is yes, it is possible, in the Pixel Persona mode. You also have available layer adjustments and layer blend modes to help you.

If all you want is a Threshold adjustment (so that everything is either black or white, with no shades of grey in between) then you don't even need to leave the Draw Persona to add it.
