  1. On the iPad V2 version of Photo, I cannot find the equivalent of "Refine Mask" that is available on the desktop version when right-clicking on a mask. As far as I can see, the iPad version only offers a "Refine selection" function, that can send the output to a mask. But that results in the creation of a new mask. What I want to do is editing/refining an existing mask. Anyone who can help?
  2. Hi guys, here's a new video about how to select human hair and animal fur precisely in Affinity Photo. I hope you enjoy and learn something new from this video, thank you!
  3. Hi guys, I just uploaded a new video about how to cut out hair, fur, or anything from the background without having to lose a single strand of hair using refine edges / refine mask. I hope you like this video, thank you!
  4. I do not understand how I can refine a mask a second time (in Affinity Photo). To make more clear what I mean, this is what I have done and where I run into problems: I made a selection; used it to make a Mask layer; right-clicked on the mask layer and chose Refine mask; made some refinements and chose Apply. So far all good, but now I want to make more refinements, but if I choose Refine mask again, the refinements I made previously seem to be lost. If I press cancel in the Refine Selection panel, then I see the previous refinements are NOT lost, but I cannot figure out how I can apply more refinements, working from the mask that already was partly refined. This is driving me crazy, so any help would be greatly appreciated!
  5. I can’t find a Key combinations that will get the right or left bracket used to resize brusch in Photo "refine"
  6. Steps to reproduce Create a mask Right-click on the mask and select Refine Mask... Screenshot Version Affinity Photo OS Windows 10 Home (64 bit) | Version 1809
  7. Hi, Created a mask and when I refine the mask "background", "foreground" and "feather" > Apply all artifacts are gone. But when I right click again (some other day) for further refining the mask on "refine mask", all artifacts are back again. How do you open/save a mask for further refining/editing and get on where you ended your last "refine mask" session without losing all previous refining? Regards, David
  8. I want to matting area manually so I turn matte edges off and draw matte brush by my self but nothing happen to photo. When I draw matte brush, Red mark appear ,"Refine selection" loading appear but nothing happen. Matte brush work when Matte edges turn on, but I want to matte only some area. Did I done something wrong?
  9. When doing a quick refine mask in Photo I notice there is some blockiness. I refined a pink hair over black photo (masked on white background here) and it looked ok at 100% but some detail seemed fuzzy. I magnified a great deal and found out why- see attached.
  10. Greatings, I searched Affinity Forum using "Mask" and "Refine +Mask" but did not get a hit about my specific question; In the Tutorial Video named "Refining Selections", after creating the Mask from the selection in the Panel, the tutor instructs to right click the Mask and select "refine mask" in the drop down list. This option is missing from the two version I currently use on my mac mini (1.4) and MacBook Pro (1.5.2); The Tutorial does not match the current options available in the drop down menu on right click. How do you "refine" Mask then? Pisk
  11. I am getting some very strange behaviour from Refine Mask dialogue. The images below will show what is happening. First_Selection.jpg shows the selection made with the Selection Brush. Initial_Refine_Selection.jpg shows the refined selection. (I have only done this roughly for the purposes of this demonstration.) New_masked_Layer.jpg shows the resultant new layer with its mask. Somehow I’d expect it to look a bit better from state of the refine dialogue - but that’s not the issue here. Clearly it needs some cleaning up so I go to the Layers menu and open Refine Mask. Reopened_Refine_Dialogue.jpg shows what I get when I do this. Something is clearly wrong! So the issue is am I using the tool badly or is there an AP problem some kind?
