  1. hello all, new to the forum and affinity. have to say i am THRILLED with affinity! looking for tips, ways to improve removing the watercolor paper background. maybe i'm doing just fine but i thought i'd ask for input. what i've done is selected the paper using the 'color sample' selection option, inverted the selection to get the painted elements, then refined using .2px for feather and smooth, thinking that would soften the edges and expand the shapes just a little. i inverted the selection again which gave me back the white paper selected and then cut it out. seems like a lot of steps but it goes so quickly! if you look at the attached image there is haziness around the image. is that from the feathering? do you think it would be better to do this with a mask? NOTE: the black background is temp so i can see if there are any bits of the paper that didn't get removed. the end result will be posting this watercolor to print on demand sites like society 6 and red bubble. thanks for having me and for the input. jen
  2. Hello, I need to remove the backgrounds of around 100 images like this... I can draw the path and insert the image into the path easy enough, but I can't figure out how to add extra paths to remove the background from the holes. I've done a few using pixel mode and the {W} tool which is OK, but I'm sure there is a simple way to do this with the Pen tool to give sharper edges? I see that I can't convert a path to a selection yet as that would seemingly solve the problem. Any advice would be appreciated.
  3. Hello--apologies for this simple question. Newbie here. I have scanned from a simple sketch on paper and placed it in AD. My issue is that the 'white' background paper (and its ever greyer paper edges) shows and I don't know how to eliminate it simply. Is there a simple button fix? Do I have to mask? Erase? I was hoping for an easy solution since I will be scanning dozens like this. All help appreciated. I attached the document. Cheers, Connie
