  1. I saw this issue from yesterday that clone and healing brush are not working on ipad. Please take a look into this issue
  2. Open any image, apply a Live Perspective Layer. Drag the two top corners inwards enough so the change is quite noticeable. Select the pixel layer and the Clone Brush Tool. Alt+ Click anywhere in the image to select the source. Move the cursor to another part of the image. The preview ( and the drawn pixels if you click and drag) are offset from the brush. The Clone Tool doesn't seem to recognize the perspective transformation. Same problem with the Inpainting Brush.
  3. In tools like Clone Brush Tool i Healing Brush Tool must Alt + Click to set a source before trying to clone. As of version, the first click does not set the clone source, or not does it appear in the brush preview. Only the second click set/shows the source. It's a bit annoying and extends the working time. I use One by Wacom CTL-671 (in pen mode), I do not use Windows Ink, with the mouse the problem does not occur.
  4. Hi, When using the clone brush tool, I notice that I have options to set the rotation, scale, and opacity of the cloned area, but I can't find any way to adjust the location of the clone source once it's been set. I find it much more useful to adjust this location using the keyboard shortcuts, rather than the rotation and zoom. For reference, the way to do this in PS, is holding Option + Shift + arrow keys. It's extremely useful when the source of your clone has a repeating pattern. Is there a way to do this in Photo? Thanks
  5. If anyone uses the clone brush a lot and is constantly changing the angle, scale or flipping the selection, you might agree with having a button to reset the brush back to defaults
  6. I have been trying to use the clone brush in Affinity Photo after years of using the one in Paint Shop Pro. As far as I can see there isn't an option in AP that matches the 'Build Up' checkbox in PSP. The default behaviour is to select your source, then paint your destination, which clones the image across. if you set 50% opacity, the copy is a 50% seethrough version of the source. No matter how many times you 'sweep' over the destination area, you will never get more that 50% opacity of the clone. If you then release the mouse button and click again, you get another 50%. The 'Build up' checkbox in PSP gives you the option to keep applying the cloned content without needing to lift your mouse button. Kind of like how an airbrush will keep adding more and more paint every time you sweep over the same area. I would normally set the opacity to 10-15% then build up the cloned content slowly, making it blend perfectly with surrounding areas. Is there an option I am missing in AP that allows this? As I simply can't use the clone tool effectively without it. Quick secondary suggestion: I love how PSP lets me right-click to select the clone source, then left click to apply. Any chance of this option too? Edit: Sorry I put this in the wrong forum - should have been Affinity Photo Suggestions.
  7. In Beta, using the Clone Brush will cause AP to shutdown without giving an error. This happens after you select the source area and just as you begin to paint the area to be cloned when you are using a Pixel layer and have Source set to current layer and below. If you use the Clone Brush directly on the image your bring in to AP with the source set to current layer this error will not occur. However, if you create a blank pixel layer above the original image and the source is set to "current layer and below" or "layers beneath" AP will shutdown 100% of the time without giving an error on shutdown or restart. I think this is a serious error because a lot of people use the blank pixel layer above original image method to have a non-destructive workflow. I am using Windows 10 with latest updates.
  8. If I change such as Hardness or Flow in the Clone Brush, it also changes in the Healing Brush (and vice versa). Is this deliberate?
  9. I first noticed this problem in but it's also in so I'm adding it here. The issue is at least one of the clone brush options do not recognize image rotations. I open an image which I straighten I select the clone brush, alt-click the inner corner of the monkey's right eye (our left) and clone it to the upper left. Then I change the clone Flip option to Horizontal and repeat the clone: Note the highlights in the eyes: AP flipped the cloned section horizontally, but is sampling from the original, unrotated image. I expected to get a mirror image of the same leveled eye. Lemuel Johnson
  10. Is ist intended that the clone brush tool keeps showing the crosshairs at the position first selected as source as long as you don't actually paint? The moment the clone brush tool starts to copy (meaning the brush ist actually painting) the crosshairs are shown at the "relative" position. In my opinion it's a bit distractive. I'd rathe want to know where from the clone brusch will take the pixels to paint, not where I first set the selection.
  11. I’ve reviewed the desktop version video entitled “Using Clone Brush Tool between different Affinity Photo docs” and have not been able to figure out how to do this on the iPad. Any thoughts? It seems that the Sources Panel is a critical link that may be missing.
  12. In Affinity Photo (AP) I have not yet discovered how to copy pixels from one doc to another. I have done my repair on one AP doc and want to use the Clone Brush to transfer my area corrections to a different doc of the exact same proportions. I can of course do this in Photoshop and may have to revert to this method, but I would like to know if I'm missing something. Within the same doc it works well but not to another doc. Thanks.
  13. Hello, Does anyone know a way how to accomplish a smooth transition between the lighter and darker area (circled in red) or which tool to use for that other than the clone brush?! Thanks
  14. I was able to solve this with TWO control starts the second one resetting everything It was working and in mid-stroke it just stopped. Possibly related to the same issue in the touch up tools? Control Runup is a work around. It keeps breaking Video attached Thanks in advance Affinity Photo Beta Cloning Failure.mp4
  15. I'm an AP newby and I'm trying to use the Inpainting Brush and the Clone Brush. I'm working on a background jpeg layer (single layer file) and I have Opacity and Flow set to 100% when using the Inpaint brush. I paint an area, which gets covered in red. When the progress bar is done the red area is only slightly covered. I still can see the area I intended to change but it looks like the opacity of the brush tool was set to about 50%. I have to apply the inpaint brush 3 times to cover the area. The Clone Brush does the same thing. Is there some setting I'm missing? Thanks in advance, Tom L.
  16. 1) I cannot get the clone brush to not align, to stay still. It follows no matter if the aligned box is checked or not. See attached video. 2) I want to use a square brush that I can change the hardness of. For some reason, the basic brushes are all round; when one uses the dropdown for new square brush, it is fixed at hard. I should not have to search another program to import a variable square brush. Even simpler, why not have a simple two-position check that makes every brush either square or round? Affinity has a very flexible clone tool but the controls and labels Clone Problems 7-2-15 copy sm trim.movon it are still awful: why "%" instead of "degrees" for rotation? Junipermn
  17. The controls for brushes seem to have been designed to be as confusing as possible, and as akward to use. Making the controls more user friendly would certainly help sales to persons coming from other image programs, or having less experience, or less English language fluency. Take the Clone Brush as an example. The control should be on a panel that is always visible, or when made visible stays visible and can be moved around. The main controls needed are for the length (which everyone else calls size, you call width), width (not "shape!") hardness, rotation of the origin (in degrees, not %!!!) and circle or square (which is entirely lacking in Affinity), flow, and a check for aligned/non-aligned. Look at how easily they are visible in Photoline's panel--see below. And when you change them in Photoline, the example in the upper left shows you the change. (The triangle in middle left is the control for circle/square.) Or look at how easily Paint Shop Pro shows them on a toolbar across the top--the second example shown below. Also, PSP shows the outline of the location, size and shape from which one is borrowingon the photo, -that is much more usefull than a little "x" on the photo! See third photo below. You have an additional control which they lack, a rotation within the borrow. I don't know a good name for it, you have it within the top bar. It at least is already in degrees. But it is less important than the rotation of the borrow shape, which is only on the "More" dropdown. Affinity needs a clear, visible set of controls for the brushes. The panel should have a memory so that when one gets back to it the controls are where you left them. This is really important. If Lightroom had a decent clone, half on us would still be with it.
