  1. I added a Mask Layer to Gaussian Blur, and using the eraser tool either black or white, I'm not getting any results. I tried closing the app and force restart.
  2. When I set an object inside another as a mask and then set the inner object to Erase blend mode, the primary object shows a hairline outline. See attached example files and screenshot. I am on a Mac using Affinity Designer 1.7.1. This happens in any document. It does not show when exporting to bitmap formats and not in all cases exporting to vector formats (SVG, PDF, EPS) This is my first time using the Erase blend mode, so do not know if the bug previously existed. Thanks Erase bug.afdesign Erase bug.svg
  3. Why when I place a vector object over another object with the blending mode is set to erase I can still see the online of the object underneath? The edge of the circle is still visible when the rectangle is being used as a vector mask and set to erase. This happens also to the edge of photos as well when I select this type of blending mode. I thought it may be a screen artifact, but it prints as well.
  4. I am attempting to load .nef files into a stack then load them into the photo persona to edit each image individually as a layer. When i get them all loaded as layers, I cannot perform simple edits such as paint brush or erase. Even adding layer masks seems to do nothing. The only manipulation I can manage is the clone tool. I thought at first that it was because of having to develop the raw files but i have the same issue when loading images as .jpeg files in the stack. I've followed the steps layed out in your tutorial videos but they don't exactly conform to the technique i use for composite light painting images. Without diving too deep into my process, I stack the images then either paint or erase out my lighting as necessary. I'm a relatively new user coming, I must be missing something. The attached image is a flattened version of my raws. There's gold in there, I'm just trying to set it free, please help.
  5. Hey There, I have some text that I've rasterized and erased bits of in pixel mode to make it look like neon tubing. When I then apply the Outer Glow effect, however, the effect doesn't seem to recognize the erased area, but treats it like I "painted" over the text with the background color (in this case, black); the glow doesn't touch the erased edges. Below is the process I've followed to get here; I'll note that it's what I used to do in Adobe without issue, so perhaps it's a workflow thing, and not a bug. ...and yes, I know the erasure is sloppy- just testing it out at this point 1) Add text 2) Rasterize text layer 3) In Pixel Persona, erase text bits, as needed 4) Apply Outer Glow effect to text I've attached some screenshots of the before/after effect.
  6. Affinity Designer 1.6.5.123 Using Erase layer with Layer FX doesn't work when the layer is inside an Artboard layer. Works okay outside the artboard layer, see attached file. Working layers are on the right, left layers are the same but inside an Artboard layer. bad erase.afdesign
  7. Hello, Currently trying out Affinity Photo and messing around (trying to learn it after many years of Adobe Photoshop) and I've found a reproducible crash. Previewing the blend mode fast from Normal to Erase on the Blur layer (inside Group 1) then to something else and back to Erase causes the application to crash. https://streamable.com/tay53 A sample project file has been attached.

  8. When you load an image and erase some, you see the grey/white chequerboard. When you create a new image, add a new layer and erase, you see white, which can cause problems. How do you get to see a chequerboard in the new image scenario? Thanks!
  9. Hi there, All the tutorials show cutting simple shapes out of a very differently coloured background which is fine.. but what do you do when you have to cut out something more complicated like a person from a very similarly coloured background?? For example, I need to cut the attached man out of the background of each picture but his skin and shirt are dark and so is the background. I am having great difficulty doing this without going and manually erasing it myself which is time-consuming. Please help me understand how I can do this easier! Cheers!
  10. Hi guys. I'm trialling the software as an option instead of photoshop. One of the things I need to do is *cut* out a model from the background without losing stubble or hair texture edge. Does anyone have any ideas of the best way to do this? In photoshop I would use *erase background* and mess about with the options to keep the hair intact. Attached is an example of the kind of image that I need to *cut* the guy from. Many thanks in advance. RJ
  11. Prior to the 1.6 update I was able to use the erase brush tool to erase part of an adjustment layer, like HSL adjustment (perhaps there is a better way to do this with masking--though I don't think masking works now either). Now nothing happens when I try that, nor when select an area and hit delete--and I'm 99.999% sure it used to work because I've done it before several times. Unless I'm losing my marbles...
  12. Using Affinity Designer is there a simple keyboard shortcut that can switch the eraser tool between remove pixels and adding pixels back in?
  13. Hi all In Develop Persona i can use the Overlay Paint Tool to select the areas and the Overlay Erase Tool to correct the selection. But when i use the Overlay Gradient Tool is not possible to correct the gradient selection with Overlay Erase Tool. How can i erase a Overlay Gradient selection? Any alternative method available? Thanks in advance.
  14. Im using affinity designer and I can't figure out where the eraser tool is. I have an image pasted on one of my layers and I want to be able to erase a portion of the image. also, In photoshop you can use a free form lasso to select part of an area and then delete it. I cant figure out how to do that in Affinity designer.
  15. Dear Affinity Developers, I was wondering... Could isolating and extracting subjects / objects become easier if there was an option to go directly to the Black & White Alpha Channel, select all the black areas, delete it, thus leaving the white to create the perfect cut out no matter how complex? It was just a thought... Best wishes & good intentions :)
  16. Hi all When selecting an area, how can I delete or erase it? Hitting del on keyboard deletes the layer. Alt+Backspace is not available Also, is it possible to do it across all layers simultaneously?
  17. I can consistently get this to happen in both Separated (easier) and not Separated mode. - Open a file - Select Eraser - Continuously erase around the page, and move the cursor out of the 'Affinity window' (at which time, the eraser outline disappears) - the way to get the outline back is to reselect the erase tool Part of my workflow involves quickly erasing large areas around an object in an image. When I'm doing this in Separated mode, it is common for me to erase off the edge of the image... which is when I loose the outline. It is helpful that the tool shows what will be erased, but there is a slight delay. Bill
  18. Would be nice to have more control over the "Erase White Paper" magic command. Perhaps a dialog that allows me to eyedropper the background "paper" color, similar to how "Select Sampled Colour" works, but with the magic :)
  19. Hi, I've just started using Affinity. I've create an FX layer with Gaussian Blur, and then created a mask on this layer so I can selectively control the effect. I'm finding both the pencil and erase tools are painting on the mask. My reading of the manual online suggests the erase tool should clear the mask. I've opened up the make layer so I can see it using the alt key. There I can see both tools paint on the mask. Is this expected behaviour - should I do something else to clear the mask after painting on it? Am I doing something wrong? thanks
  20. I'm new to Affinity Designer (AD), and to vector graphics, so pls bear with me. Amazing piece of software, by the way! Some images that relate to my query below: https://cldup.com/T__1kSZ5pa-3000x3000.jpeg So, I created a vector graphic with AD (v1.3.5) that is to serve as a logo. The client wanted a grunge effect on one part of the graphic, which I did by adding vector grunge textures as layers. Long story short, I needed quite a few to get the exact effect we wanted. They were mostly laid over text. Now I come to export, so the client can use the logo in the real world (i.e., .eps, .svg, and via Illustrator to .ai). Everything works fine when I have a background present in the graphic. But I'm trying to find a way to have a transparent version, too. This would be important for the client, in terms of flexibility of use of the logo. Here, I'm having problems with the grunge texture layers. The Erase option on layers or groups in AD is fabulous. It does exactly what I want. I want to get rid of the colored font, but keep the grunge effect over the font, and elsewhere in this part of the graphic. With Erase enabled in AD in particular layers or groups, when you scale up the graphic in you see precise vector shapes are preserved, no matter how large you go. But when it comes to exporting, there are two options, as we know: 1. Export with rasterising "unsupported effects" (which sadly includes the Erase function); or 2. Don't rasterise, and see the Erase effect lost, and hence the transparency I need lost. In my specific situation, rasterisation is not possible, and the result from Option #1 above is pixelated anyway, which is useless for me. On the other hand, because of the grunge effects, there are literally way too many small shapes to locate and make transparent manually. There are probably 5000+ of these tiny shapes. And I'd not only need to delete what is otherwise a white fill (absent the Erase function), but also the same shape, in place, in the background layers the grunge effects rest on top of. Erase just does this directly. But it's unusable if you need a 100% vector output. I've tried seeking a solution outside of AD. In Illustrator, in iDraw / Graphic, and also Inkspace. In none was I able to work out how to do what I wanted to do. I also tried exporting my AD graphic as .png and running through Vector Magic on the most detailed settings and vectorising again. But the result is at least 50% or more poorer than the original in my AD document. In Illustrator, I could pick all layers with a certain color. But I wasn't able to work out how "cut" those layers *and* all other layers relevant that these shapes or nodes lay over. In Inkspace, the exported .eps was pixelated, even without rasterising. I couldn't immediately see anything in iDraw / Graphic that would help, though the .eps file was clean, just like it is in the original AD file. I couldn't see how to erase, in iDraw / Graphic, globally a single hex color, which is really -- ultimately -- what I need to do. Or otherwise, to force that color to be transparent, from the top of the layer tree to the bottom. So two questions: 1. Is AD close to being able to export a vector with the Erase effect preserved? 2. Does anyone have advice on how to get that effect in a complex vector in the meantime, even if outside of AD (in Illustrator, for example)? I spent all day trying to search for solutions on Google, but I'm not finding what I need so far. I fear that the complexity of the layers I have will prevent a simple solution. Again: Erase does it. But it's not possible, sadly, to output a 100% vector from it. Vector Magic has a great feature when vectorising a bitmap image: you can cut a background out with the press of a button. Given the complexity of the grunge effects, this would not exactly be practical in my instance, but I know the hex value that I want to make transparent throughout my graphic, if anyone knows a way of forcing that. Thanks for reading this far ... and for any advice or input.
  21. Hi there, I'm a newbie to Affinity Photo and need some help. I'd like to remove some hairs in parts of my image and tried to do so with the Inpaint Brush and the Clone Brush Tool. But I get artifacts, smudge. Obviously I am doing something wrong here. Any advice greatly appreciated! Thank you!
  22. If I open a scanned image in Photoshop, it opens as a single "Background" layer. And whenever you use the Eraser tool on such a "Background" layer, it Erases to White because White is the default chosen background color. Of course, if I click the little Lock icon to unlock the Background layer in Photoshop, it changes to "Layer 0" and any use of the Eraser tool in that case will erase to transparent. In Affinity Designer, everything erases to transparent from what I see, even the Background layer. In Affinity, how do I ERASE TO WHITE? Thanks.
  23. In Photoshop I can choose Brush, Pencil or Block as Erasers. In AP, I don't see anything similar to Block or Pencil. More specifically, I want the means, like in Photoshop, to erase WITHOUT anti-aliasing. Even when I set AP's Erase Brush Tool to 100% Harness, it is still anti-aliased and therefore it is no substitute for Photoshop's Pencil and Block erasers.
  24. I wish there is a possibility to adjust the width of a brush by pushing maybe alt-cmd +klick. A virtual circle shows the new diameter of width ... you are done. No fine tuning on the width tool again and again!
