Frequent question - what is the difference between two different layers like "Image" and "Pixel". "File > Open" command, opens the photo as a "Pixel" layer. Dragging photo from a folder to an open document, creates the "Image" layer. To work with pixel selection, the "Image" layer must be converted to the "Pixel" layer (right click, Rasterise). Image layer allows you to replace images, this is very useful for working with complex design. Image layer allows you to return the original scale or dpi (ppi). Image layer saves compression if it is jpg, reducing document file size. https://affinity.help/photo/English.lproj/pages/Layers/layerImage.html Image layer can be a link to a file, which greatly reduces document file size. https://affinity.help/photo/English.lproj/pages/Media/embeddingVsLinking.html Image layer allows you to quickly recolor, by simply selecting the desired fill or stroke color. "Convert to Curves" command, turns the "Image" layer into a vector object with a Bitmap Fill. You can edit the Bitmap Fill using the "Gradient Tool" https://affinity.help/photo/English.lproj/pages/Tools/tools_gradient.html
Hi guys, How do I copy a pixel selection? In Fireworks you simply draw a shape with the marquee tool, hit Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V, and the pixel selection is copied. How can I do this in Affinity? The help file doesn't seem to explain this. Thanks
