Hi, I’m Relatively new to Affinity Photo (both on iPad & Mac), and have the same problem on both platforms. I hope i’m posting this question in the right place.
I’m trying to make a mask that targets the sky in the attached image (including the small areas in the roof parapet and the gaps in the trees). I have:
Created a luminosity mask (see image 2), that I now want to adjust from being grey scale (see image 3) to pure black & white
l’ve created two child layers to the mask (curves and levels) and set them both to target the Alpha channels - see image 4 (I know I can paint on these masks to further target the areas they are applied to)
The problem that I have is that I can’t find a way to visualise purely the mask when I’m adjusting the curves / levels layer. When I put the mask layer into ‘Solo’ mode - I can only see the original luminosity mask, and can’t see the impact of any changes to the mask that are caused by the curves / levels adjustments.
Is there a way to do this, or am I missing something? Is there a problem with the workflow I’m using?
Any advise, hints, tips or pointers will be much appreciated.
