  1. I am working on a huge 360º pano. Using "Edit/Inpait" for closing the drone hole, something went wrong and the task is now running for over half an hour, doing kinda nothing (no fan noise fully equipped MBP16/2019). It is not possible to [Esc] this without kill -9 (Force quit) Affinity Photo. Unfortunately always doing like so, you never know if some GB of cache or whatever used on SSD will remain forever als garbage on the disk, wasting valuable disk space. Where is the [Esc] or [Cancel] button??? To me, this is a bug, at least an ugly design flaw: Cheers, Roland
  2. Feature request: It would be super neat of Affinity Photo's tools would remember last used settings. Specifically the source target option ( Current Layer & Below ) on the Clone and Inpaint tools. More info: I did post a question about this on a different affinity forum where you can see more info:
  3. The shortcut opt+delete doesn't do the magic of inpaint, but it erase as if it's only delete. I have to go to the menu bar > edit > inpaint to get the command to work. Other common shortcuts work fine ( command S, C, X, V, etc.) I am using iMac and Wacom Intuos Pen. Anyone has the same problem?
  4. Wow, love this feature, I created this paper letter that I screenshot from a PC Game. Went from full of writing to an empty letter. I even darken the lines using the pen tool with the line feature on a new layer. Then I used inpaint on the image layer.
  5. Paolo here. aka the picture guy. I bought the Affinity Photo app within the first 2 weeks of its release. I’ve been watching the tutorials and have been following along to learn..... But when they get to inpainting i noticed i do not have the brush on the right hand side. When i click on the bandaid, it doesn’t give any choices, and when i used help, it shows inpainting under edit, but it is not highlighted so it won’t turn on. This was one of the features i have been looking forward to most, and i don’t even have ! HELP!!
  6. Hi, I have cropped a photo to size. I have rasterised the layer, but when I'm using inpainting brush, it keeps taking data from outside the canvas, but as far as I know, it shouldn't, as the layer has been rasterised. The inpainting tool behaves as the layer has not been rasterised. Am I doing something wrong? APhoto Beta I attach sample screenshots when I'm trying to inpaint building on the top right.
  7. I uploaded an image from Photos using the extension function, so far so good. I could not find the inpaint brush tool and also having searched for it in the help menu, it is greyed out in the Edit menu. I only have one layer and it is (Pixel).
  8. Hey everyone So I've got a picture of two kangaroos that was taken through a wire fence. Removing the wire fence using the inpainting brush tool works fine anywhere else except for where it crosses over the kangaroos. It just doesn't select appropriate surrounding areas to fill where the fence was. So I'm wondering if there is some other method to remove this? Or a better way to use the inpainting tool? I'm fairly new with all this so please bear with me if I'm a little slow with the procedure. Thanks all!
  9. Hi I'm new to Affinity, and have followed some tutorials. In one I had the luck to use the Inpaint tool - but now I can't make it work. I choose it, mark the spots, and everything is like in the tutorials, and like the first time - all thought now, nothing disappears. Whats am I doing wrong?? All the best, Sidsel
  10. Hello, I just bought the Affinity Photo software download today. I've watched the getting started video. I do not seem to have in Inpaint Brush Tool on my list of tools. I made sure I was in a layer and not an adjustment, and not an adjustment layer, as I read in the Help Guide. Do I have to be in a certain layer or adjustment to have the tool viewable? Is there a place to load missing tools? Also, is there a way to load tools or edits across the top on a toolbar, as seen in the video. I am trying to practice on each of the basic options
  11. Hi, I have a selection of electric wires which I would like to inpaint on a sky, ideally with inpainting being on a separate layer. However when I choose Edit/Inpaint or Edit/Fill/Inpaint it always samples from the current layer only, which is the empty layer I would like the inpainting to be on. I would like to do Inpaint of a selection with sampling from Current and Below. Adding an option to the Edit/Fill dialog would solve this issue.
  12. Hi, sometimes the Inpainting Brush Tool or Fill Inpaint works quiet good for some scenarios, but unfortunately in some cases absolutely not, especially if greater areas should be replaced with inpainting. In this cases the algorithem takes parts of the image which makes no sence. So my idea was to select a greater part of the image excluding the parts which shouldn't be used for the Inpainting alogrithem, in the hope for better results, but the algorithem still takes parts of the non selected area, or simply said the same result as before without selection. Any suggestions how to improve the Inpainting, respectively exclude areas for the algorithem? Thx!
  13. I watched the Apple WWDC keynote and found AP for iPad amazing. Nothing else on iOS compares! While watching your video tutorials today, I paid close attention to object removal. Please jump to 1:57 in the following tutorial video: Notice how the woman is nicely removed but the left-corner edge of that L-shaped gutter has vanished and looks very wrong. In Photoshop there is a Clone Stamp Tool that helps one to manually fix things like that (restoring content beneath a removed object). Is there an equivalent Clone Stamp Tool in Affinity Photo for iPad? INPAINTING is very easy to use and is a good tool in many situations but not all. In the specific case of removing that woman, a clone stamp tool used by hand would make the removal nearly undetectable and allow you to retain the content shown between her arms. Thank you.
  14. Hi there V V V new to editing so sorry if this is an obvious answer. I have found the inpaint tool (which was tough) and I am using this to select what I need to remove from my picture - when I release the mouse once all highlighted in red - it doesn't remove anything - image stays the same! I am editing the pixel layer! What am I doing wrong please? Many thanks
  15. I am trying to delete an unwanted area on a jpeg photo. Where is the inpainting brush tool on Affinity photo 1.5? I don't seem to have this facility. I have just viewed my first basic tutorial and don't appear to have the inpainting brush. I have an undo brush tool which is not the same. In edit, under matte, inpaint is grey and unavailable why is this? Thank you
  16. This might be a hardware issue but i can't inpaint missing areas in Panoramas. The panorama renders in about 30 secs with a 5 shots raw 24mb image sequence but then the inpaint won't function. I don't know whether this is because of a difficult selection but at any rates there should be an indication of processing so that the user has a reference and can cancel if needed. I have used a number of tools within the program that display a complete freeze if you have made an error in implementation. I know that this can happen with PS but it generally is dealt with by a quick escape from the tool. Generally speaking I have had a number of complete overload experiences where AP locks up my operating system completely and I cannot even access task manager to stop the process. Any thoughts?
  17. Looking for tips on how to extend a background. I have attached two photos of a bird where the bird was too close to the edge of the photo on both the top right and bottom sides. So I decided to add more background as follows: 1. Increase the canvas size with the original photo anchored in the center. 2. Select the newly added blank canvas and grow it 4 pixels to insure overlap with the original image. 3. Fill/Inpaint In the photo on the left photo, using Photoshop CS6 I get a nice inpaint fill (they call it content aware fill). In the other example on the right, using Affinity Photo, I get an incomplete fill. As you can see, the right and bottom sides filled in nicely. But the top and left sides did not. All tips on the best way to extend the background are appreciated.
  18. I am able to initiate the command (inpaint or heal), but after highlighted can't seem to finalize the process. ENTER or something else?
  19. This may be something that should be a BR, but thought I'd check first. One of the things that has really wowed me in AP is the inpaint tool. But tonight it didn't work. Not at all. Not after saving, and restarting. Same with the clone tool.
