    I'm a writer, '70s music junkie, avid photographer and contributor on Shutterstock. My writings cover a hodgepodge of topics from the hot-button issues and cracker-barrel philosophy of today's coffee culture to the Gordian knot of faith and religion
  1. Thank you; I will take a second look at the original layer (from your answer I'm assuming it should always be selected) and whether I'm using Pixel layers. By-the-way, I am blown away by how great this editing system is, and although there are some rough patches for me (it's all new), the system is pretty easy to use.
  2. The Healing Brush, Patch, Blemish Removal and Inpainting Tools will not work after I apply a layer. For example, I attempted to use the Frequency Separation as outlined in the Affinity tutorial: https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/tutorials/photo/ As soon as I applied the Frequency Separation Filter, however, the tools would not work. I followed the instructions to the letter and every time I added a layer the tools stopped working. I had the same issue whenever I opened and worked with other layers. The tools only worked if I used them on my photo before opening any layers. What am I missing or doing wrong?
