I really love the new affitnity photo but I had a layer masks question. In photoshop I paint back and forth when using masks to get nice subtle effects in my images. I do this by selecting the eye ripper tool . In photoshop , when I use the eye dropper tool on a selected layer mask, it samples the mask itself ( and gives me the black and white value that is in the mask ) .When I try to do that in affinity photo, it samples the main image instead of the layer mask itself which means if i ever wanted to paint back into a mask at a later date, I’d have to remember the grey value ( or guess ) that I previously used so that I can get the same amount of transparency that i had previously painted with. Is their any way around this? Am I doing something wrong ?
Thanks for your help
