Setting round corners radius independently

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 

 

i am totally new to both the forum and Affinity Photo. I just started working on this app on the latest iPad Pro. Was wondering if there’s an easy way to create a rectangle with round corners without applying the radius to all 4 corners. In Photoshop you can set the radius for each of the corners independently. Is this possible in AP? 

 

Thanks  for for the support.

In Designer which is primarily a vector too yes there is a corner tool but not in Photo which is primarily a pixel tool although both packages contain a subset of the other package. The programs are complementary and you can open their files in either program.

I see... so if i got you ...I need to surcharging between the two apps in order to get almost the same tools as in photoshop. Is it correct?

On the iPad, which is the forum you asked, they are extremely good value so hardly surcharging, just being more focused to the type of work you want to do, are you a photographer use Photo, a designer use Designer, bit of both buy both. Often available at a discount price too.

Sorry Paulo I just noticed the auto correction completely distorted the meaning of my post. I wanted to say switching non surcharging , however thanks for your explanation 

I think that a window where user can set the radius for each of the corners would be a good plus also for AP

I think it's likely to do with performance, over bloating on features leads to a poor experience aka competitors product, Affinity tries to keep a high performance so splitting into separate tools makes some sense. I am just guessing on this by the way, I run the facebook fan pages Affinity Photo and Affinity Photo and Designer for iPad which you are welcome to join and not affiliated to Serif in any way.

If you use the rectangle tool to draw your rectangle, you then untick "single radius" on the context toolbar, and you can adjust each corner radius independantly.

The iPad versions of the Affinity apps don’t have that option.

Sorry, I keep forgetting that the iPad version is "cut down" from the full version, I assumed it would have the same options!
