Mud’s Macros V2 -Expand Stroke

Recommended Posts

On one of the Facebook groups, David Williams set me an accidental challenge by mentioning Expand Stroke was a function only available in Affinity Designer.
Well now you can use Expand Stroke in Affinity Photo on all platforms by importing my Mud’s Macros V2 library.
To create this I needed to record a macro, which is only available in AP. The command I needed was in AD so how to get it?
I started in Affinity Publisher on desktop with a blank document, changed to AP persona and started record, then changed to AD persona and performed Expand Stroke from the menu, then switched back to Photo persona and ended the recording. Simples, eventually !

Mud’s Macros V2

SelectionFromLayer - convert a layer into a pixel selection
SelectAllLayers - select all layers quickly
DeSelectAllLayers - de select all layers quickly
PencilPortrait - Convert Photo to pencil sketch (Credit: Alpha Sierra, YouTube)
InpaintCrop2 - fix edges after a straighten crop (Credit: Jim Welsh)
Inpaint - the inpaint option from the desktop.
ExpandStroke - Expand Stroke from Designer 

And here it is in action on iPad, but the macro also works on desktop versions of Photo as well.

Thanks Walt, I had a fair idea it would likely work because of the common core engine, it also offers a method to enhance all three packages with macro actions too.
