Affinity Photo - 4 Perspective Tools explained

Recommended Posts

 

Go to my Youtube Channel, where you can find 35 Tutorials, with a new Tutorial coming out every 3 Days.

 

Today we are going to have a look at 4 different applications of Perspective Tools in Affinity Photo.

 

You can use them in a wide variety of ways, not just for perspective correction, but also to create new compositions or put new things into your photos. Make photos more dramatic or bring back the zen of a easy situation. So many possibilities.

Hi

Nice and clear video but I believe you are mistaken when you are demonstrating the Live Perspective Projection

You effectively say ...
 
"You cant use any other layers and you can't put text on the projection"

In reality, you simply add these layers as normal then use the Merge Down command to merge them into the Background layer


This video will show you how he merges down an image layer at around the 5:04 mark

You just do the same for Text Layers or other layers you create

 

 


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

Oh, wow, that is why that didn't work for me. I used "Merge visible" instead of "Merge down". That said, the "live Projection" is not really any more useful than using a single plane perspective tool and doesn't really have any "live" features to it, like the smart Layers in Photoshop. So i am still pretty disappointed by what it can do. Still thank you for telling me. I will make a Video about that functionality asap.

If you use Layer > New Live Filter Layer > Perspective Filter, rather than the Perspective Tool you will find that Text etc does not get rasterised and remains editable at all time.  By using the Perspective Filter it is also easy to readjust the perspective should you need to do that at anytime

You may find that useful information for your next video.

Sure, this one is my favourite use for the Live Perspective Filter

If you use an embedded AP document as the object you want to apply the Perspective Filter to, you get the option to Edit the embedded document which will give you the original flat document to work with.

If you have 2 screens (or display both documents on the one screen) you can see the Perspective image change in "real time" as you update the (flat) embedded document.

I'm experimenting with the live perspective filter and text right now and it does some very strange things. This text is not rasterized, yet you can clearly see pixelelation. Also, unless i put it into a group is a vector rectangle that is the full size of my image, the text will be cut off at the edge of the "box" that it out around the original text (not a text box, just the "movers"). 

 

Pretty strange. Not sure if i am missing something here.

Hard to be certain with the images you have supplied but there is currently a bug with the Live Perspective Filter which distorts the image and you may be encountering that.

You can work around it but it's tricky and currently takes a bit of playing around to get it to work as required.

Development are aware but no time frame at the moment for when it will be fixed.

PS  Working at 100% zoom helps a lot when trying to work around the bug

why is there not a simple perspective tool for quickly creating symetrical perspective like the option in Photoshop > Transform >  Perspective .... These solutions seem to make simple tasks much harder and more time consuming or am I missing something?
