  1. Well... I have found out the answer to why it didn't work. But, I don't understand why the why existed. Confused? Me too. Let me explain... When I moved on to the next section (Sampled Color Pixel Selections), the Assistant rasterized the photo for me. Now all of the selection tools are working. However, the photo was a JPG. Maybe I am just grossly misinformed, but I understand a rasterized object to be one that is pixel-based. I thought that JPG files were already rasterized by the nature of the file format. That being said, I know that in the future if I have this issue, I can manually rasterize the image and continue with no issues. I just want to understand the reasoning behind this issue.
  2. Hi again! I am still making my way through all of the Help documentation. I have reached the area on range pixel selections. I can't make the Color Range or Tonal Range selections work. I have selected an image (pixel) layer. But, when I try to use the tool, it doesn't work. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Screen_Capt.mov
  3. Oh wow! Thank you so much! That was very helpful. In fact, now that I've seen it, it seems kind of obvious. I don't know how I didn't get it before! Thanks again!
  4. Hey guys, I have just begun to use this software and I am currently reading my way through the Affinity Designer Help articles. However, when I got to the sections on "Layer clipping" and "Layer masking", I got confused. It seems from the help articles that "Layer clipping" and "Vector masking" are the same thing. From the "Layer clipping" section: From the "Layer masking" section: Am I just dense or are these two things the same thing? If there is a difference, I want to know what it is and what the different use cases are. If not, I just want to know not to get hung up on this. Thanks in advance for any help that can be provided! bboysupaman
