  1. Using AP on Win10 Pro 64-bit (build 17134.228), running 32GB on AMD Ryzen 5 1600 six-core at 3.20GHz) I was learning from your tutorials and when learning about masking when I used the Flood Seletion tool, AP appeared to stall with the message of "Not Responding" at the top of the screen. Can't believe I don't have enough memory, so what could it be. Only AP and Firefox (v.61.0.2, 64bit) are running. Any thoughts???
  2. Hello! I would really like to have the option to save the Flood Selection Tool settings by default because whenever I work on multiple files I have to do for each independent file the following process: Select the Flood Select Tool Go to the menu bar Click the tolerance button Set the tolerance to 0 Uncheck the Contiguous box. Do my work on the file Repeat...
  3. I'm pretty new to Affinity Photo, but I've used the Flood Select Tool a lot in the past. It's not working for me, however, on a certain image. If I create a new document and paint a little and then click in my paint with the Flood Select Tool it works, but if I paste an image in and try to use it in the "(image)" layer it doesn't work. If I then merge that image layer down to my pixel layer I'm again able to use the Flood Select Tool to select color areas of the image. Can someone explain what's going on here? Thanks.
  4. I noticed when making a selection on an image (pixel), using the Flood Select Tool, the Right Mouse Button which is used to Add to the selection (according to the Tooltip in lower-left) does not work.
  5. Hi all, Would it be possible to add support for the Flood Fill Tool and Flood Select Tool to read all the layers? Cheers, Juan
  6. Hey, so I've just started using Affinity for cleaning and translating Manga. one thing that I've been looking for and miss from using Photoshop is selecting several objects with the Magic wand tool. The Flood select tool is awesome but I can't seem to select more than one thing at the time with it. I know I can use the Selection brush tool and do it manually but for the task of selecting individual letters, it's just faster to do it one by one. So what I'm wondering is if I'm missing something and there is a way to select more objects at once or if the brush selection tool is the one way. Thanks in advance.
  7. Hi, This is related to Affinity Photo just purchased in the Affinty shop. When I use the Flood Select Tool the picture disappears and the selected is much more than I wanted it to be, sometimes even entire picture, Please have a look at the video: Flood Select Tool issue. What can be causing such problem? Jakub
  8. I have a photo (Screenshot #1) that shows venue illumination for a private event we've covered (the tree & table lighting's photos are the problems to fix via AP). The problem is that the camera "perceived" the background trees in an awful & unnatural light tint ("florescent"-looking green & cold white) which looks nothing like it did in real-life; so I am trying to fix those areas to make the photo look like the setting actually did. I have made various adjustments to the photo (saturation, exposure, white balance, brightness, color adjustments etc) and have made the table lighting and the near-trees' lighting look as they actually did during the event. The problem is that while achieving this realistic look for the front part of the photo (trees, tables & general ambience), the background trees' lighting & color were also altered to the point were they look appallingly unnatural and nothing like they actually looked like. This is what I want to fix. So, I tried making a new pixel layer (above the rasterized base photo - named "ugly green fix") in order to select the background trees (florescent green & white color) with the Flood Select Tool. However, the Flood Select Tool would just not select any pixel areas WITHIN the layer and the tolerance slider did nothing. It would only select the outskirts of the image as if it could not "see" the pixels in it. (Screenshot #2). So I then tried to rasterize this layer too so maybe it would maybe work. No difference. **Why is this not working? I thought that the correct, non-destuctive, way to do anything in AP is to do it on a different layer. But AP doesn't let me do so. So, then, I had no choice but to try the destructive way, and tried to do this on the original base pixel layer (named "photo" in my project). For some reason I have not yet understood it worked there (Screenshot #3). **But this means that I will be "destroying the original file so i would like to find out how to do it correctly on a separate pixel layer. From there I was able to select the florescent white light areas in the background area with the Flood Select Tool (the different cold-green and florescent-green areas would not be selected with this tool - I suppose because it is a different color than the white selected area - so I would do that later I guess). **But what is strange is that even though the white area IS selected, when I change adjustments (eg brightness as in Screenshots #4, #5, #6), the ENTIRE image is affected, not just the selected area/s!! What am I doing wrong? How do I affect ONLY the selected area/s?? (I mean, that's the whole point of selecting areas, right?) **Last, as this photo is a perfect example of the things that I will frequently need AP for (adjusting selected areas within images) - which is actually exactly what I bought it for as Photos in Mac OS can't do this; it will be very important for me to know if for this photo, and for similar situations, the Flood Select Tool is really the best tool I can be using. (?) Maybe if a photo is more simple (lighting- and color-wise), the Flood Select Tool is very fast as it'll quickly select all the similar pixels and you can immediately do whatever you want to those areas. BUT, if it's a situation like this photo where the USER (myself) wants to decide which areas he wants selected (in this photo its the background tree areas that are bright white, bright green and florescent green) in order to adjust them together but separately from the rest of the image, even if they're not similar pixels; then maybe some other tool is faster??? **Maybe some magic tool that you guide around the area/s you want, and it "magnets" to the actual borders if it sees them? I'M REALLY SORRY FOR THIS ESSAY, BUT SINCE YOU DON'T HAVE PHONE SUPPORT I HAD TO WRITE MY QUESTIONS OUT FOR AN HOUR (INSTEAD OF BEING ABLE TO VERBALLY ASK THEM IN UNDER A MINUTE!). I hope an expert will reply ASAP as I'm on hold to get A LOT of work done, and I'm stuck now...
  9. Hi First off I'd to thank the developers for such excellent software. Here's a thing: I have a photo which I've straightened. This of course leaves a blank area on the edge of each side. Wishing to select a blank area on just one side I use the Flood Fill tool making sure to tick the 'contiguous' box. However each area on each side gets selected. I've tried it with the contiguous box both ticked & unticked but still no joy. Suggestions please.
