  1. The refine selection is not functioning correctly in Photo V 1.9. When I use selection brush and select refine and then try to refine selection with any of the selections, background, foreground Matte etc the pink colouring is light pink not dark and when applied does not actually do the fine selection ...I am scratching my head as I have tried multiple options...is there a new setting somewhere in V 1.9 that is throwing me off or is this a new bug? Please advise.
  2. In this video, I m going to show you, How to change or remove background from hairy, massive, and complex images in Affinity Designer. In this Affinity tutorial, I have using refine selection with the selection brush tool. I hope It will help you. Thanks for watching it.
  3. My suggestions for improving the "Refine Selection" tool: 1. When entering the refine dialog, at first the selection does not change at all. No feathering, no matte edges. 2. The user decides where they want to to feather the selection or reanalyse the transition from foreground to background with the feather or the matte brush. 3. The sliders have a global effect on all the edges, whether the brushes were used or not. 4. Foreground and background brushes work just like white and black, without any reanalysis of the edge and spill-over. 5. Colour decontamination
  4. I'm wondering if this is the expected result from Refine selection. I've included a video, but I'm wondering if this isn't a bug? Process: Selection Tool --> Refine --> Paint with Matte brush (Matte edges selected) --> Output --> New Layer with Mask --> Hide the mask. The new layer seems to have been destroyed (old layer is not touched, as expected) I would think that after going through the process, I would be able to touch up the mask, but the new layer is so ruined, that I can't use any of the area that I would unmask. I am able to move the mask to the old
  5. I had been processing an image an image by making a selection and then selecting Refine selection. This created a red matte that covered my entire image, not just the non-selected part. I was able to paint around the edges and refine and use the selection. I then tried to print the image. and the red matte also appeared on the preview image. I exported the final image as a flattened tiff (closing the original). I then re-loaded it and went to print. Again the red matte was there. The image printed OK. You can see my final image under Share Your Work. John
  6. Hi, Thanks for the great app. I am having some trouble while refining selection in the latest version of Affinity Photo. When the refine selection window is open, and I go over the edges of the selection with the Adjustment brush the preview disappears. Unchecking matte edges, changing the adjustment brush or the preview type doesn't help. Below is a gif of what is going on. My operating system and hardware: OSX 10.14.6, Early 2015 Macbook Pro The problem started after updating to v 1.7.3
  7. Same problem in 1.7.3.481 Any comments from the Serif staff? Refine selection is completely useless... No improvements here whatsoever in about two years.
  8. I came across an issue when refining a selection using the foreground or background brush. Sometimes there are areas in an image that just can't be processed by the Matte brush completely correct. So then I use the background or foreground brush to tell AP that a particular area definitely belongs to the background or foreground. But as a result those areas are always extended from background into the foreground and vice versa. It seems impossible to determine the correct brush distance from the foreground/background border in order to achieve a clean edge. I know there is Quick mask
  9. Please see the attached screenshots. I want to cut-out this ornament leaving a transparent background. I used the selection brush along with refine selection. I thought I'd done a decent job until I copied the selection and pasted onto a white background. The edges are jagged and some of the original background, which was outside of the selection, has also been copied over. Also, if I cut the selection there are remnants of the image left behind. What am I doing wrong?
  10. Hi, Having a problem with Refine Selection, specifically with masks. I click on it and then get beach-balled and have to quit Affinity Designer. Anyone else having similar problems? Anything I can do? It's happened with several different documents so it's not limited to the one I'm using. Thoughts? Help? J
  11. So this request is a follow-up to the one I made on this thread: Apparently, according to fellow forum user @toltec, this feature was already implemented, which is absolutely great. What is not so great, however, is its discoverability (or, in this case, its blatant [edit: partial] lack thereof). [edit: user @R C-R made me realise that the Status Bar already has a “cheat-sheet”/tooltip with said shortcuts, but I still feel that is not enough and that my suggestions are very sound, so please bear with me…] Please, for the sake of other users who may not frequent the forum or
  12. I am in the selection persona using Refine Selection. The only options showing are Adjustment/Width. In a video I saw, there were preview/adjustment/width/output options available. How can I display all four options?
  13. I'm trying to use refine selection with "new layer with mask" option. After applying i'm editing the mask for fine tuning and fix some missing points. But i see that Refine Seleçtion tool causes artefects and odd pixels around the edges of original image. See the attached image. Original and defected side by side.
  14. The title of the thread says it all: in AP, it would be nice if pressing Option toggled between one of the two additive selection brush modes (Matte or Foreground) and the subtractive mode (Background) in the Refine Selection dialog box. It's just that having to move the cursor or the pen back and forth just to change the selection mode gets rather tedious quickly and breaks the flow. Also, while on this subject, it would be nice if one could do further refinements without screwing up with other parts of the selection, but maybe it's just my workflow that isn't properly set up. Ple
  15. Hey All, Not sure what is going on with my photo :(. Last night it worked fine, all day today, the selection brush / refine process has been completely bizzare. I have tried closing / reopening photo. Restart computer. Minimal software/apps running. Editing previously bulk edited jpg to .aff images, as well as RAW processed images. When using the selection brush: about 1 out of 10 images crash the program entirely on the first drag the rest can get through to the "Refine" process, but matting is responding very unusually. ---Areas of the ima
  16. I'm using affinity photo on the new iPad Pro 10.5 inch. When I go to refine a selection, I am unable to export to a new layer. In the tutorial it clearly shows a toolbar that I do not have access to when in the refining selection persona. I'm including pictures of the toolbar as shown in the tutorial and the toolbar as shown in my experience. Notice the toolbar is different and does not include the same features as the one shown in the tutorial. Please advise.
  17. Hi, when using the Refine Selection dialog box it always opens up on some default settings ( Border width = 10%, all other settings at 0%), which does not suit what I am doing with the selection. Is there a way to save the Refine Selection dialog box settings?
  18. 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_R
  19. Why does my image disappear when I use the feather slider when I try to refine a selection? Is this a bug? I tried to move the all the refinement sliders to try to not make this happen but it my image only "came back" when I had the Feather slider at zero.
  20. Very new to the Affinity Photo game so trying to get to grips with the most efficient workflows. I'm trying to remove a green screen background for some product images to make useable PNGs of the product images. I have had reasonable results simply using the selection brush tool and gradually selecting the edges then refining as best I can however the results are not always as clean as I'd like them to be, I'm sure there are some much more efficient/cleverer methods of reaching the same goal. I have linked 2 images (the uploader wouldn’t let me add any for some reason) both o
  21. I bought Affinity Photo yesterday. It's been pretty good so far, but I'm having a lot of problems with cutting objects out of photos. Here is a video displaying the issue. Notice how the refined parts become frayed and messy. (Also notice how slow it is) I have seen both of the in-house tutorials on cutting objects and refining selections. I have also looked at the information in the "Help" menu in Affinity Photo. Here are my machine specs: Macbook Pro Retina - Early 2015 Processor: 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5 RAM: 8 GB 1867 MHz DDR3 Graphics: Intel Iris Graphics 6100 1536 MB O
  22. Again, I am a veteran Photoshop user who is desperately trying to get weaned of PS and start using AP exclusively. But the speed of AP's "Refine Selection" is just terrible. Any adjustment is followed by about 3 seconds of waiting on my 3.06GHz iMac. And yet on the same iMac, PS's "Refine Edge" features work instantly, with no delay at all. Change Feather, Smoothness, etc. It doesn't matter. PS is instantaneous while AP gives a progress bar. This seems to be related to the same slowness we see with the Export Calculations. These things need to be instantaneous, and on our modern mac
