Hi, I've been using Affinity designer for a few weeks so I'm still a bit new to the software; I'm hoping someone can help me out. I'm having trouble working with various PNG files with transparent backgrounds in which I can't seem to get the object/image separated from the background, even though there is no background. For example, if I import a simple PNG vector image of a beach ball with a transparent background and I try to apply localized adjustments to the beachball, such as filling in an area with color, or applying a stroke to the outside of the ball, etc., Affinity Designer responds as if the file is one large rectangle, filling in the entire canvas with color - it does not recognize that there is an object on a transparent background. If I open the same file in photoshop and apply the fill color tool to the ball, PS fills in the ball only, recognizing that it's a single object, and leaves the transparent background as is.
I'm a bit confused on what I'm doing wrong, any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!!
