  1. Hey everyone, I'm in the middle of a project and I've hit a snag. I'm trying to remove the background from a person's image. For the smooth parts of the silhouette, like the general body and clothes, I'm using vector shapes, and for the more intricate details like strands of hair, I'm using pixel-based masks. (That's how I've always done it.) I thought I could use the compound mask option to combine these two masking techniques into one neat mask. However, that doesn't seem to be possible right now. I want the vector shape to stay vector at all costs for better editability. In the past, for projects like this, I've rasterized the vector shape as the last step, but I'd like to avoid that now. I thought the compound mask would be the perfect option for the task. Has anyone else come across this issue? (Sorry if I missed the thread; if there's one, feel free to point me in that direction.) Maybe this is something that the devs are already working on? I'd love to hear your thoughts or any solutions you might have! Cheers! Dennis *I've attached the masks as a file for testing purposes.

  2. In this Affinity Photo v2 tutorial I show how compound masks can be so useful in your workflow. I saw this tutorial done on Photoshop by Mood on YouTube, but without compound masks and thought about how much better compound masks makes it in Affinity. https://youtu.be/vuRlbRMUA8k Note I also have an iPad version of this tutorial on y channel
