  1. Perfect. I'll look through the others too. Thanks
  2. OK, bear with me, I have looked at the gradient map and tbh looks nothing like what I am looking for. In lightroom I can click gradient, drag my cursor down from the top of the photo and gradually darken the too bright sky. I know I can do this in Affinity photo, just not how or even the right question to ask. tia
  3. I have a monochrome image I want to export as a png with the white transparent.

    Sorry I cant do what you did. In the first videe.... I have the cut out that I want to edit, position the rectangle but my geometry buttons and options are greyed out. As for the second video I did finally manage it. I guess affinity is so powerful with so many options even simple things get complex. 15 years of using Corel is difficult to shed. Thanks for your help

    You can see what I have in my screen shot. The cut crop and a new shape. What do I do from there?

    OK so I have the object to be clipped and I want the triangle to do the clipping. Now what?

    Alfred yes thats it. The tutorial didnt specify the "icon". I can do that now. and I can crop now I see the handles. Now I want to cut off a corner of the rectangle I have cropped. In Corel Id start with the original and just draw the shape to crop by just editing the nodes. I tried starting with a polygon but couldnt get it to be anything bui a polygon whereas I have a rectangle. So new from clipboard and then drawing a triangle that this ti;e I want to remove. How do I remove the corner - or perhaps I should have started from somewhere else?
  11. I can't crop. I have tried for hours. If I select the crop tool and try to draw the crop I want if moves the whole image. Following a tutorial had me copy the background, draw a rectangle over the area I want to crop then drag that layer over the copied layer. Fine so far. then drag the shape over the copied background OK But then it said " Turn off the original image (background) by unchecking the box. you will then be left with the shape you cropped out. " Nope, nothing happens I will learn this app eventually but I only have so much time - I have the official book but "crop" isn't even in the index. I guess I have done something wrong but this really needs to be easier if its to replace apps lik e Corel Draw which I still go back to because of this kind of PITA. I want to learn but the obvious just doesnt work and neither does the more proper way advocated by this tutorial
  12. its a logo with a white background. I can't just set the white to be the transparent colour in a png? No... but it seems I can i Photo FILTERS > COLOURS > ERASE WHITE PAPER works for me. Thanks for your help though,I should have mentioned I also had Photo
  13. Already set. Do I have to convert the original jpg somehow? SInce, of course, there will be no transparency to that at the outset.
  14. Great that is nice and straightforward. So, I now have a logo jpg with a white background with text underneath with no background. I want all the background to be transparent in a png. In corel I would just select the colour I wanted transparent during export - what the best way to do it here? Export without background saves the opaque white background of the logo.
