Hey Guys!


Im just getting into Affinity Photo and editing in general and have a couple of questions:


1- is there a quick way to rotate a brush head in Affinity photo? - I know you can dbl click the brush type and drag the rotation slider but wondered if there is a short cut?


2- Does anyone know if the Social Kit Pro plug-in works with Affinity photo?


Many thanks!

Not sure if we are talking about the same thing but with the set up I have I use the arrow keys to rotate the brush head. Works before and during painting strokes.

Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 12.7.1 
Affinity Designer 2.2.1 | Affinity Photo 2.2.1 | Affinity Publisher 2.2.1 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

Hello, here is a question from the present 😄

it's great that rotation is possible via arrow keys. Unfortunately it doesn't work with my composite brush. It's a brush I bought and it has a basic shape as well as a texture, both are masked together. If I use the arrow keys only the background mask of my brush rotates but the basic texture that shapes the brush remains the same. Is there a trick as how I could rotate the whole brush altogether?

I also rotated the document view but the brush position remains the same. Is there a possibility to rotate the view together with the brush so they are always linked?


Thank you in advance!
