Adding the fin­ish­ing touches

In the fi­nal in­stal­ment we’ll be ex­plor­ing Affin­ity De­signer’s Pixel Per­sona

Mac Format - - IMPROVE -

De­spite be­ing pri­mar­ily a vec­tor­based soft­ware pack­age, Affin­ity De­signer has an ex­tremely good range of pixel edit­ing tools in its Pixel Per­sona. In this, the fi­nal part in our De­signer se­ries, we’ll be ex­plor­ing some of these and dis­cov­er­ing just what a com­plete pack­age Affin­ity De­signer re­ally is! We’ll also be learn­ing another method of ex­port­ing im­ages – this time we’ll be us­ing Affin­ity De­signer’s third and fi­nal mode known as Ex­port Per­sona.

Now that we’ve fin­ished the main im­age, we can add the last fin­ish­ing touches to it. This will be a good place for you to experiment with the dif­fer­ent things you’ve learnt over the course of the se­ries. We de­cided that it would be a nice idea to hang a copy of our fish tank im­age on the wall and then give it a bit of a shadow.

Over the past few is­sues you will have hope­fully got to grips with Affin­ity De­signer and come to your own con­clu­sions about the soft­ware. Although soft­ware such as Adobe Il­lus­tra­tor is a much more com­plete vec­tor edit­ing pack­age, Affin­ity De­signer will hap­pily give it a run for its money. And when you con­sider the price dif­fer­ence of the two, De­signer be­comes a very vi­able op­tion. James Robin­son

Now we’ve fin­ished the main im­age, we can add the last fin­ish­ing touches

Now that we’ve cre­ated our vec­tor im­age we can move to Pixel Per­sona to add a few flour­ishes.
