Move the green color stop toward the edge of the document. However, we might want to go back and change the gradient again. To do this, select the layer that had the gradient applied to it, in this case, the Background layer. Then, select the Gradient Tool. Now the gradient can be adjusted again. To do this, make sure the Background layer is selected, then go to the Swatches panel. In the Swatches panel, make sure you have the right palette selected, then press the painter palette icon to add the gradient as a swatch to add to future projects.

Gradients are an easy way to add beautiful, powerful colors to your designs. Select the Transparency Tool. Select the polygon shape, then double-click on the layer icon to make the polygon take up the whole screen. Click and drag to make a gradient. Where you start your gradient, the shape will be fully visible, while where you end your gradient, the shape will be invisible. The black color stop means the shape is visible, while the white color stop means the shape is invisible.

Now you can adjust the Opacity. If you try to change the color of these color stops in the Color panel, nothing happens.

One thing you can change is the Opacity. To bring the Opacity up, click the circle underneath Noise. You can change a few options in the Context Toolbar, like with the Gradient Tool. You can switch the color stops to make the opposite end transparent.

The Transparency Tool is a great way to add a custom transparency effect to any object. Apply a Brightness and Contrast adjustment. Press the Adjustment icon. Increase the Brightness and Contrast by bringing up the sliders, then exit from the Dialog Box. Notice that the triangle is being affected very strongly, making it disappear.

Just like all other layers, the Brightness and Contrast layer can be checked and unchecked, and if you no longer want it, you can drag it to the trash can at the bottom of the Layers panel. This time, select the heart layer. With the heart being selected, the next adjustment will be applied as a child layer to the heart. Apply an HSL adjustment. Adjust the Hue slider, then increase the Saturation, then exit from the Dialog Box. By using these adjustment layers, you can easily change the colors of your document.

Because of this, I want to show you a great color resource that you can use. This website is great because it does all the math and follows all the rules of color theory to make good color combinations, without us needing to know color theory. If you want to bring these colors into Affinity, the first thing you need to do is set up your computer in a split screen so that you can see both the website and Affinity Designer.

The program generates colors that look good together. Obviously you still need to use your judgement to decide which colors look good together, but this website gives you a great starting point.

Click and drag the Color Picker to select one of the colors. In this case, it doesn’t seem to be working. That is because in our last section, we applied an adjustment to the circle, which is making this new color look different. Select the HSL adjustment, then drag it to the trash can. If you would like, you could continue this process for the other objects in the document.

With the help of this website, you shouldn’t have any trouble creating beautiful color schemes for your designs. Press the fx icon at the bottom of the Layers panel. In this Dialog Box, we have Layer Effects that we can apply on the left, and properties to change about those effects on the right. We can also apply multiple effects at a time. Select the Outer Glow, and check it on. The text layer has now been blurred.

Increase the Radius. Remember that if you want a larger Radius, you can always go above pixels if you type in a higher number, like If you ever want to modify the Layer Effects, you can select the layer, then press the fx icon again, or you can press the fx on the right side of the layer to bring up the Dialog Box again.

Select the pink rectangle to apply a style to it. Go to the Styles panel. Click on any of the styles to apply it to the rectangle. To name your style, press on the menu again, then press Rename Category.

Rename your category. Click on the text layer. Then, go to the menu and click on Add Style from Selection. Now, there is a new style that can be applied to other layers. Press the yellow rectangle, then press on the style to apply it. When you make and apply styles, the Fill, Stroke, and Layer Effects will be applied. This even includes gradients if they are applied to a layer. Rename your style. Let’s make one more style. Select the blue rectangle, then select the Fill Tool to give it a gradient.

Press the center color stop, and change its color to white. Press the outer color stop, and change its color to a darker turquoise. In the Color panel, select the Stroke color circle, then change the color to gold.

To increase the size of the Stroke, go to the Stroke panel, then increase the Width. Return to the Layers panel, then click the fx icon. Select the Outer Shadow, and check it on. Go to the menu, and select Add Style from Selection. Press on the square on the far left, then apply the style by clicking on it.

As you can see, saving styles can save you a lot of time, so that you don’t have to apply the same effects to each layer. I encourage you to create a few styles that you like, and then apply them to multiple layers.

In the Dialog Box, we want Include Margins to be checked on. Do this for the rest of the boxes, then press OK. If you don’t have a printer, a good rule of thumb is to leave. I’m not sure how many pixels that would be, but Affinity will do the math for us. In the first box, type in. Press Enter. Make sure to keep all important parts of your design inside the margins to be sure that it will be printed. Sometimes, objects span farther than the margins. Click and drag to draw a rectangle all the way across the document, then change its color in the Color panel.

I’m not sure how much of the rectangle will be printed, but at least it will be printed to the margins that were set. If you want to adjust the margins, select the Move Tool. Press Escape on your keyboard so that nothing is selected. In the Context Toolbar, go to Document Setup. In the Dialog Box, click on Margins. Here, you can adjust or remove the margins. Margins are a great way to make sure that everything that you want to be printed is actually in the area that the printer is capable of using.

We now have Rulers on the top and side of our document. You could also use the shortcut Command or Control R. At any time, you can use the Move Tool to reposition the guides.

Guides can help you ensure that the parts of your document are lined up with each other. Go back to the top of the screen to View. If you ever want to turn off the ruler, press Show Ruler to uncheck it. If you ever want to turn off the guides, press Show Guides to uncheck it.

Press Guides Manager. To add another guide, you can press the icon near the bottom left. To change where a guide is, double-click on the number and type in another one. To delete a guide, select it, then press the trash can. To remove all guides, press Remove All Guides. When you are done working with the Guides Manager, press Close.

Guides are a great way to make your work as precise as possible. Inside the Dialog Box, check on Show Grid. Designer has automatically applied a grid, but we can alter this grid to suit our needs.

If we want the lines to be different colors, first unlock the colors by pressing the chain icon. Now you can adjust the colors and opacity to whatever looks good to you. If we uncheck Use automatic grid, we can adjust more options. We can adjust the Divisions, which changes the number of the secondary lines on the grid. Here, the most important change we can make is changing the Mode from Standard to Isometric. Depending on your design style, an isometric grid might be very useful.

If we ever want to turn our grid off, go back to View, and uncheck Show Grid. Using a grid can help you to ensure that your design is properly spaced and positioned. With Snapping turned on, our objects will snap in place in relation to each other, and in relation to the midpoint and edges of our document. The shapes will snap to the edges of another shape to help you keep the objects in line with each other. The numbers on the lines tell you the distances that you have between shapes and edges of the document.

There are quite a few options, and we’ll go over the most important ones. The first thing to change is the Screen tolerance. The lower the Screen tolerance, the weaker and less intrusive the snapping will be. The higher the Screen tolerance, the stronger and more intrusive the snapping will be.

Raise the Screen tolerance. Go back to the Snapping options, and lower the Screen tolerance back to 8. We can also change the Candidates, which are how many objects Affinity will remember for snapping.

By having the Maximum candidates set to 6, only the last 6 objects that you have worked with will be remembered by Affinity. Another important option is to Only snap to visible objects. This is nice to have turned on so that snapping will only happen with objects on the screen, not objects that I have turned off in the Layers panel. If you have a grid or guide, and the Snap to grid and Snap to guide options are not checked on, there is not much use for having the grid or guide because Designer will not snap to them.

Snap to spread and Include spread mid points means that Designer will automatically snap to the midpoints and the edges of your documents.

You can imagine each artboard as a piece of paper, and the surrounding area as a desk. Anything put inside of the artboards will be exported in our final project, but we can use the area outside of the artboard, our pasteboard, to store content we might want to use. That content will be off to the side, but still easily accessible.

Inside this document, there are stars to the left that we might want to include in our designs. When we save this document, all of the objects inside of the artboards and the pasteboard will be included. You can only use pasteboards if you’re using artboards inside of your document. If your document has no artboards, then any object placed outside of the page will disappear. When the stars are in the pasteboard, they are completely visible, and when they are in the artboard, they are completely visible.

However, when the stars are in the artboard, and are partially in the pasteboard, the part of the star in the pasteboard will disappear. An artboard is essentially a Group that has all of your design elements inside of it. And even inside of an artboard, you can still make Groups and layers just as we have throughout the rest of the course.

Each document you make can have as many artboards as you want, allowing you to keep multiple design elements that are all part of the same project inside of the same file. Artboards can also be used to show the same app on multiple screen sizes, used to make storyboards, and so much more. Artboards are a great way to organize a large project, and keep parts of your project available by putting them inside of your pasteboard. Go to the top of the screen to File, then New.

In the Dialog Box, you can check on Create artboard to have one in your new document. However, keep this unchecked for now. Let’s see how we can make an artboard in our document, even if we didn’t do this step. Press OK to make a new document.

Press Insert Artboard in the Context Toolbar to create an artboard and pasteboard in your document. You can change the size of the artboard by using the Transform panel, too. First, we can duplicate our artboard by holding down Alt or Option, then clicking and dragging on our artboard with the Artboard Tool.

We could also duplicate the artboard in the Layers panel by pressing Command or Control J. Then use the Artboard Tool to reposition the new artboard. You can also go up to the Context Toolbar to add an artboard. Right now, the Size is Document, but there are many other sizes to choose from. Selection means that the new artboard will be the same size as whichever artboard is selected. We can rename our artboards in the Layers panel by doubleclicking on their name.

We can also delete any artboard layer at any time by clicking and dragging it to the trash can in the Layers panel, but be warned that deleting the artboard will delete every layer that you had on that artboard.

The Artboard Tool allows you to create and customize artboards inside of your document. Press Command or Control Shift 0 zero. Select the artboard in the Layers panel that you would like to fill the screen with. Select one of the stars. You can change the color of an artboard very easily.

When you are working with a document that doesn’t have an artboard, you need to click and drag a rectangle over the document to add a background color. However, with artboards, all you need to do is select the artboard in the Layers panel, then change the color in the Color panel. Select the Fill Tool. Click and drag a gradient in Artboard 1, then adjust the colors as you’d like. A few members on the Affinity forum commented on shipping damage : This publication should be packed in more than a close fitting cardboard box.

Amazon knows how to package items, but after after some couriers get their hands on them, hurling them like frisbees crashing into container walls, not many items can survive that treatment. The corners of the spine were damaged and it has a dent on the front–not really bad, but if I was buying it in a book store, I would expect a discount.

I did not take any stars away from the book, as it is a shipping issue which I will take up directly with Amazon. I will write a detailed review of the content as time permits. Tip: Don’t leave this sitting on the coffee table gathering dust. It is a practical tool to help you express your true creative talents through this software. Amazingly crafted book. I have just started it but the information is well presented. However, I would advise not to get too hung up on the pages describing all of the menu items — it will bog you down and won’t make much sense anyway out of context of actually using them.

Skim this section but move ahead to the exercises, and then go back to reference the menu items section when needed. The good thing about this book is that is walks you through specific projects to learn how to use the software in the context of an actual project. Between the online tutorials, this book, and the help menu, the user is well covered.

I am new to vector design, so there is quite a learning curve and things that appear simple from the online tutorials I am having to plod through and figure out one step at a time. So far no complaints with this book or the software. Good stuff! This is a gorgeous book. Well designed in every way.

A pleasure to look at and read. For every exercise, you need to type in a long URL to directly download the resource file in a zipped format.

Then you have to open each zip and extract it before you can use it. And the zipped files take too long to download on top. I’m disappointed that the designers of this workbook did not pay enough attention to the resource file utilization. I highly recommend the way Lynda-dot-com solved this issue.

Of course a determined software pirate has many ways to do his unscrupulous deeds but massive copyrighted, proprietary photography ebooks are sold online everyday, aren’t they? That’s why I just came to the conclusion that there was little demand. Yes, pdf permissions passwords can be removed in less than 1 second. It takes strong pdf open passwords to secure a pdf.

The passwords to open the pdf would need to be communicated to the end user and likely would be passed along as well. However, your second paragraph is a bogus issue. PagePlus, which did the first two workbooks I really hope Serif is attempting to use APub for its workbook can also as easily produce a screen version and it wouldn’t be a big pdf. Even so, it should then be ran through Acrobat to optimize it.

I cannot imagine either workbook would be larger than 5 megs. And speaking of Acrobat, the same thing can be done to the very pfds used to print the workbook, including cropping the pages. Mike, have you seen a copy of the Photo workbook? What would be the point of making a PDF or e-Book version that did not include the same high resolution versions of the book’s example images that could be enlarged on screen or printed to show the same level of detail?

Low resolution pdfs are used for manuals all the time. They, the images, print OK. It’s more about having the instructions on-screen when following along. Want it to look pretty too? Buy the book or A version with dpi images, which would print well on consumer printers, wouldn’t weigh in above 10 megs or so. Well those are first of all workbooks, so books for learning how to use the software and thus are not meant to be highres gallerie fine art photo prints in their own rights, which BTW then would have almost bigger dimensional paper sizes.

And of course you can show for such sort of books enough details in PDF and epub formats too. The Affinity workbooks are not product manuals. They do include a brief introductory section that covers the basics but their primary focus is on teaching users how to use the software to achieve specific end results via a series of ‘learn by doing’ projects, with much of the projects’ content presented in high resolution printed images.

It makes us feel joy, sadness, excitement and laughter. It helps us relax and recharge. It is important that we feel free to spend our free time however we want, and feel no shame in kicking back and watching a movie or levelling up on our favorite game.

Discovery is rewarding, allowing us to hit new highs and fall in love with things we never thought we would. Anyway, for those wondering if the workbooks are right for them please be aware that they are not, nor are they intended to be, comprehensive manuals that will teach you everything the apps can do, how to use every tool, or answer all your questions about basic functionalities.

If that is what you want, look elsewhere. You simply dismiss that dpi images sufficiently display for such a workbook. This flies in the face of nearly every eBook or pdf instructional book ever made. Both are equivalent in page quantity and image detail to the Affinity books. Like for example much better general searching for contents topics, index, words, crossreferences etc.

Further for every better IT and computer ebook all the related accompanied media is also available as download packages, either as a whole or chapter wise, dependent on the size of the whole material.

It also eliminates one common question, how do I find and downloads. Just click the link. However, one can easily loan or resale the book and resources. Additionally, it keeps the wife happy, as I have purchased and donated over two hundred, almost new books, over the years. I also like not having to remember to place a bookmark on my page.

BTW, why do you need to manually capitalize the start of a new sentence or paragraph lately or have I just not noticed. This is on iPad Pro. The Affinity workbooks are not reference manuals. I have a bunch of Apple and PS theme related ebooks about graphics and photo themes, which all scale fine here. What has that to do with reference manuals or self contained projects only, so what is the lame excuse argument here?
