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