  1. When I create a mask, then paint on that mask in black, it is as if I am painting in dark grey. The masked layer shows through dimly and is not removed completely until I paint over it again. In the attached file, you can see that I have a red layer with a mask and a blue layer below that. When I paint on the mask, you can see that the result is a deep purple but if I paint over it again all of the red is removed and the blue shows through correctly. Brush opacity is 100%, Flow 100%, and hardness 100%. I must be missing something in the settings but I can't figure it out. Suggest
  2. I create a new document. I create a layer of colorful flowers. I duplicate that layer. I adjust the top layer to Black and white. If I erase on the top layer, the color below shows through. Now I create a mask on the top layer and paint on it in black and nothing happens. So I try painting in white. Nothing happens. What in the world am I missing? Thanks
  3. pattern layers can be layered in a graphic and bit can be erased out to show the layers underneath which is quite useful but what I would like to do is apply a gradient mask to a pattern layer so I could at any time go back in and adjust the gradient mask to adjust the transparent areaof the pattern layer. Currently when you apply a gradient mask to a pattern layer the pattern no longer repeats. I may be asking for things that are not possible but I would be really great if a gradient mask could become a pattern layer and be nested as a child layer of another pattern layer so you could adjus
  4. Sky replacement Affinity Photo Beginner tutorial Many beginners replace the sky forget about how it affects the rest of the photo. In this Digitally Fearless Affinity Photo tutorial I show how the sky affects the whole photo in real life and how you can show this in your photo manipulation. https://youtu.be/TUwr1ULcYzM
  5. Hi Guys, New to Affinity and I've come up against something that's really bugging me. When using a simple rectangle with the erase layer effect style. Rectangle has fill, no stroke. It removes part of my image as I would like but there are always outlines visible from the geometry. These outlines do not come out when I export, but they are annoying to look at on screen. Is there a way to make them vanish? Hope that's clear enough? Thanks
  6. Hey guys, im new to affinity photo and i have a big problem. You see i want to recreate this poster (credit : dribble) does somebody know how to make the colors of the background image match? so does the mix of the rounded square and the background looks clean. thanks
  7. Masking with Shades of Gray in Affinity Photo In my latest Digitally Fearless Affinity Photo beginner tutorial, I create interesting effects masking with shades of gray. Masking is not just for Black and White. I hope you find it useful. https://youtu.be/69P79bEM9MA
  8. Hi All, Sorry, I'm not 100% sure how to properly word this, as I've not nailed down exactly what causes this to occur, but I've had a persistent albeit random issue trying to paint masks. Eventually, after doing a fair mount of painting/switching back and forth between black/white using the keyboard shortcut something happens and AP gets 'stuck'. Once the issue starts, white and black do the same thing and resetting the colors does not fix the issue. If they are stuck in 'hide mode' both colors hide and vice versa. I can save and restart, but the issue persists. However, sometimes, i
  9. I've got a pattern of curves that is masked. I'm wondering if there is a way to more permanently trim off the ends of the curves that are masked, so I'd be left with shorter curves instead of masked long curves. This would help with export to other software that isn't handling masks well.
  10. I am so stumped. This would be so easy in Photoshop but after a day of trial and error and googling, I remain perplexed. I am making a logo that should over lap in a chain-link sort of way. I tried going to pixel persona and making but the selection tool is incredibly ragged and imprecise. I could get it to work in a rigged sort of way if I didn't need the white stroke, but i do. Here's an example of what I'm trying to do... So much to learn. Any help/tips would be greatly appreciated.
  11. Hi there I´am trying to erase part of a mask using the brush in overlay blend mode. It suposse that if the mask is un black and white and the brush in overlay mode, when the brush pass over a white part of the mask, it should not affect whites, but it does. How can I fix this?
  12. How to remove a background in Affinity Photo - Selection Brush Tool The tutorial is full of Affinity tips and tricks from beginning to end. PLUS if you watch all the way through I will show you what I personally would do after removing the background P.S. This is the first time I will show up on camera, pretty exciting for me.. 😅 Enjoy the video, and let me know if you got something out of this tutorial !
  13. I have installed the new 1.7.2. and have opened the last file working on..... did see only grey place until I have unchecked all layers with MASKs! Mask totally do not work! Please how can I quickly return to previous version, this is a TOTAL SHOW STOPPER! Thanks Jindra
  14. Is there a possibility of allowing masking (Mask to below) to have a shortcut on pixel via vector. That is Masking an image using a vector object?
  15. To speed up workflow, I'd like to request a color behavior change when selecting masks. When selecting a mask, please change foreground/background colors to Black and White. When selecting back onto a pixel or image layer, revert to selected colors. This is a Photoshop behavior I miss very much and I didn't realize how much I missed it as I've spent a LOT of time trying to figure out why my mask wasn't working only to realize I was painting on the mask with a color rather than black/grey/white. Also Thanks for your consideration
  16. I'm new to the Affinity suite. I've been chugging my way through the Fora, been watching the tutorials, and experimenting endlessly. There's one thing that has me stumped. I'm trying to make an image to be used in OBS. I need to 'cut out' various shapes, leaving them blank so that I can slide other elements (e.g. a couple of video feeds, a Zoom conference, and a PowerPoint) into the broadcast. In the sample image I've uploaded here, imagine that the white shapes are the areas I'd like to delete from the background image. I've sort of figured out how to rasterize the image and d
  17. The UI presentation between masking and clipping layers needs to be improved. The difference is too minor and too similar. When working with a lot of layers, this becomes even more difficult to see.
  18. On Affinity Photo 1.8 for Win, empty mask is not working, and if you try to check/uncheck the box on the right of the mask layer, it stays stuck selected on every combination you try...
  19. Where can I find tutorials on masking images and fonts? or rather masking fonts with images?
  20. Hey, here's my "Masking & Layering Hair in Affinity Designer" - Not a beginner friendly tutorial 5 tips for layering and masking hair (or other objects) in vector. Listed in the order I like from most to least. Apologies for the mic pops, I'm working on a better setup.
  21. Hi, I’m Relatively new to Affinity Photo (both on iPad & Mac), and have the same problem on both platforms. I hope i’m posting this question in the right place. I’m trying to make a mask that targets the sky in the attached image (including the small areas in the roof parapet and the gaps in the trees). I have: Created a luminosity mask (see image 2), that I now want to adjust from being grey scale (see image 3) to pure black & white l’ve created two child layers to the mask (curves and levels) and set them both to target the Alpha channels - see image 4 (I know I can
  22. Hi all, I have this strange thing going on. Masks are horrible around the edge, in general. I have also found if I use the refine mask function, the edges are exceptionally awful. I can see the brush marks and a weird outline. I made sure that I was using a "basic" brush (no textures), so I don't know what is going on. I have attached three views of the image I was working on, and also an AP file that I create as a test to confirm what I was happening. I apologize for the lack of proper terminology here, I don't use masking much and so my description to the error may be a bit v
  23. How do you make a vector mask containing a hole in Affinity Photo? Assume I want to mask a photo of a doughnut in Affinity Photo. I want a vector mask so I can modify it with precision at any time. I use the pen tool to draw a closed curve around the perimeter of the doughnut , then fill the curve black. I present my filled curve to the doughnut layer and get the short blue vertical line. The mask works as expected, but of course the hole has not been addressed. How do I deal with the hole? Nothing I have tried works, except the following: I draw another closed curv
  24. Single 43mp photo, attempting to give background more blur, crash occurred as I was painting the filter to mask certain portions.. screen went black. As I tried to explain during beta testing and seemed to not be acknowledge, there are problems when using some of the new functions that were not a problem in the previous 1.6. new HDR Merge and now New Panorama, and for some reasons what should be simple applications of filters. program seems to be overwhelmed and I ask again, is the RAM required to use these filters and functions being released. i rec
  25. Hello Affinities! First, I have to say: I really enjoy using Affinity Photo for "finishing" my landscape photos. Thanks for such a great product. Yesterday, on my Windows 10 desktop computer, I updated to Affinity Photo 1.7.2.471. I opened a rather complex file and instantly noticed different rendering of the photo. I used an levels adjustment layer and a gaussian blur live filter in a group to create an orton effect. I reduced opacity and I put a masked on the group. While painting with a black brush on the white mask, a checkerboard pattern occured. I simplified that. A loade
