Showing results for tags 'rectangular marquee tool'.
Could someone please explain something to me, before I punch my monitor? I turn Force Pixel Alignment and Move By Whole Pixels on (pic 1). I use Rectangular Marquee, I move the selected area ONE pixel to the right and everything looks fine (pic 2) until I unclick the tool (pic 3) when Affinity Photo does... something weird with the selection. How the hell do I force Rectangular Marquee to full pixels?
I just downloaded the trial version of Affinity photos. The reviews are so good that I thought I would try it out before buying it. I went to edit a few photos today and I found that I could not use the Rectangular Marquee Tool to crop photos to the size I wanted them to be. I can highlight the area I want cropped but there is no tool or setting to do the actual cropping so how do you crop photos using the Rectangular Marquee Tool? Am I just assuming that because you can do this in Photoshop you should be able to do this in Affinity Photo? Is this feature not available because I am using a trial version or because I have El Captain? I tried finding help on this subject in the help section but found nothing that could help me out. I tried using the Noise Reduction feature (denoise) but I could not really tell how well it works because when I saved the photo I could not save it as a jpg so I could compare it to the original photo. I really wish they would let you save photos as a jpg in the trial version so you can do a side by side comparison with the original photo. While I am an experienced Photoshop user, I am somewhat new to Mac having converted earlier this year after more than 15 years as a PC user. Perhaps this is why I am having problems cropping photos. Hopefully someone in this forum can help me out because I really would like to purchase Affinity Photo but with the current problems I am having with the trial version I can not justify purchasing it.
