I am voicing my request again for editable spare channels to create custom masking as seen here. Presently I can do it and I've actually gotten it down. But it would be so much easier if we could have editable channels. Instead of 4-6 steps it could be done in 1!!! Please Please consider!
robtmann posted a topic in (Pre 1.7) Bugs on MacHello Affinity, Congratulations on creating the first real competition that Photoshop has ever had. Photo is a great application! I found a few small bugs in the UI. They're just minor annoyances... nothing major. MARQUEE Inconsistent Keyboard Shortcut Response - Select Marquee Tool - Hold down [Command+Spacebar] and click to zoom. - The first click is usually counted as a “deselect” instead of a zoom. When clicking quickly, the second or third click usually causes it to work properly. - The behavior is the same when using [Option+Spacebar] to zoom out. Shift Key Should Add To Current Selection - Select Marquee Tool - Make a selection - If the Shift Key is held down and another selection is made, it should Add to the current selection. Currently, it deselects the current selection and begins to create a selection that’s constrained to a square. The Option Key behaves properly in this respect because if a selection is made and then another selection is made with the Option Key held down, it Subtracts from the first selection. INPAINTING TOOL Icon Changes to Move Tool Icon - Select Inpainting Tool - Click canvas scrollbar and mouse back over the canvas - Icon will have changed to the move tool icon - Tapping the spacebar will revert the icon to its proper state ADJUSTMENT LAYERS Option Click should also revert to non-mask view - Option+click shows the contents of an adjustment layer mask, but it should also return the user to the non-mask view when they click on the mask again.
Carlos posted a topic in Affinity on Desktop Questions (Mac and Windows)I have a black logo on a white backbround as a JPG image. I would like to make all the White transparent (alpha channel), so that I can save it as a Black Logo on a Transparent background PNG. What is the cleanest/ most accurate way to do this, please? Using a bitmap image as a mask is ideally what I need (copy the inverted greyscale image into the alpha channel to get the transparency) any help is really appreciated. I have Affinity Designer & Photo beta.
Love the masking feature. To improve work flow I was wondering if it would be possible to add some sort of shortcut to mask a shape into another shape. Instead of going to the layer panel dragging a layer into another layer, it would be sweet to be able to do this on the drawing board. For example, I have two shapes, circle and rectangle. I want my rectangle masked/clipped inside of the circle. I select the rectangle, press cmd+m (actual short-cut may vary) the short-cut activates the 'layer-mask selector' and my cursor now highlights all shapes on-hover. I simply hover over the shape I want, this case the circle— it highlights, I click on it, and now my rectangle in clipped inside the circle or in other words the layer masked is applied. Hope this makes sense. This would be really cool and helpful!
