Hello,

I am a newbie with the Affinity Designer... I check different Video Tutorials, but I didn't find exactly what I need...

I would like to make my normal png like the Glow effect couch.png.

What is the best and easiest way to do that....?

I would really appreciate each help...

with kind regards from Germany

AD_Rookie49, there are a few ways to get something like this.  I would make my shapes with a white (or slightly blue) center and a stroke of the light blue.  Then add some layer effects to both shapes.  An Internal shadow (or Inner Glow) with the color set to be the blue desired.  Set the blending mode for effect, multiply does a good job.  Set an outer shadow (or Outer glow) with the color set to a purple.  Again set the blending mode as desired.  Then I'd add a bit of blur so the stroke isn't too crisp.  Attached is a quick example.

Dear Gear Maker,

is there an easier way to do this glow effect. ?? I have tried it to use the png-Image directly... filled it with a white color and made an outer glow effect.

Or are there other ways ?

kind regards

Hi, AD_Rookie49,

Easier may not be better if the base bitmap file is rather small and coarse. It will not scale up very well. Thus, the work to make a vector frame is worth the trouble.
