Designer: Any way to expand blended colors to get a palette ?

Recommended Posts

So, I am learning vectoring, coloring, etc with Affinity Designer and I am reading some tutorials on different projects I want to try. One such tutorial has steps to blend 2 colors together then extract the shades from the blend to create a palette. The steps for Illustrator are listed in the attachment and I am wondering if Design has the same ability?

You can use the gradient panel to create a gradient. Here I made a rectangle and selected the gradient panel from the Context Toolbar,





If you use the Swatches burger menu, you can make a palette from anything, here, from your image.




A Document Palette is stored in this document only/

An Application Palette will be stored so you can use it in every Designer document.

You can also create a Palette from a file on disc (no need to open it first) and select how many colours you end up with..

The problem by create a palette from the dok itself - you have no option how many colors you want.

By the extern-file-methode you can choose it!
