Beginner Looking To Create Simple T-shirts

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

     I have no experience with graphic design, but I am interested in creating simple designs using stock images and incorporating text.  In an attempt to narrow the information I have to consume to do this, I wish to find instruction on how to import stock images into affinity and place text onto and around these images.  Also, how would I get the final product into vector format?  I'm sure my questions are very elementary to most users, but I have never worked with any design software and would like to dabble in some simple designs and be able to see my creations on tangible products. Thank you so much for any support you can give.

Hi Reinforcethefrail,

 

Welcome to the Forums :)

 

Affinity Designer can export  to the vector formats EPS and SVG. You can use the Text Tools to add to text to your stock images but you may need to trace them by hand if they aren't already in a vector format. You can see a tutorial explaining tracing in Designer below.

Nah he can't, since that way YouTube videos aren't shown up here. Give him the link instead!

 

Further he might want to take a deeper look over all Affinity Designer related tutorial videos in order to get an idea of how AD works:


☛ Affinity Designer 1.9.2 ◆ Affinity Photo 1.9.2 ◆ OSX El Capitan
