  1. The issue was that there was a lot of space around the MacBook (the sides and the bottom), and I wanted to remove that. I hope that makes more sense. There is a background - it is just transparent. What I wanted to do was to remove the space around the image, so I had a clean cut of the MacBook without the extra canvas at the bottom and the sides. I hope that makes more sense. FYI - I have solved the issue now. Thanks for your inputs everyone.
  2. Thank you so much for taking the time to record the video! I am very grateful for that. I followed the steps and was finally able to remove the background. Enjoy your day.
  3. I don't want a background - just the macbook cut out. Below you can see what happens when I try to drag the image around on the canvas. Although I have applied a mask to the mackbook selection, it keeps the background, and leaves behind an imprint of the image. The original image is a PSD file that I then exported as a jpeg file and opened in a new Affinity Photo document because I had the same issue when trying to remove the background in the PSD file.
  4. Thanks your replies: I tried to delete the mask, invert the selection, and then apply the mask again. Now the macbook remains, but it looks as if it has not been cut out from the background. When I try to export the image as a jpeg, the white background is still there. And if I click on the image (including the mask), and copy it to a new document, the background is also there.
  5. Thanks for your quick reply - I tried to select "invert pixel selection" (with the mask layer selected), but that doesn't change anything.
  6. Hi I want to cut out the background of an image. But when I make a selection with the brush selection tool and click on the mask layer icon, the area I want to keep, becomes transparent. I have spent hours trying to find a solution, but nothing seems to work. I have tried with other images as well, and I get the same result. Can you help? I have attached two images - one before I apply the mask layer, and one after. I hope this helps you identify the issue.
