  1. This one I came across by accident. Whilst working on a page, by mistake I dragged an image onto a master page layer. Didn't noticed until after a while. As is the case with a master page layer, the items on it ae locked so couldn't just delete it. The mask also ins't on the actual master page, just on the layer representing the master page. It's replicable for me: - Open APub - create blank new document - on the first page (not the master page itself) add a mask to the (Master A) layer by clicking on the mask icon in the layers window - open the (Master A) layer and right-click on the mask - select Release Mask from the menu That results in a crash each time here. in v1.7.0.283 Bert Affinity Publisher Beta_2019-04-04-150809_Bowser.crash
  2. I'm just trying to use a mask to replace the background of my photo. I add the mask and a background layer. I've tried a selection to mask and just a blank mask. But when I try to use the brush to adjust the mask, there is no change. I've tried going from all black and using a white brush and the opposite, all white with a black brush. No response. I'm so frustrated. I'm sure it must be user error, but I cannot figure out what I'm missing. Thank you in advance for your time and help! Update: Using the brush on a regular layer doesn't do anything either, so I must have a weird brush setting going. Solution: Turn off "Protect Alpha."
  3. Help, I am a newbie with Affinity. I have a rendered picture and a a very precise mask picture generated by a render engine. Both are in .PNG format. I'd like to use the mask file to mask out the black background and make the background transparent on the picture image so that I can overlay the image onto a new scene file? Can someone help me with step by step procedures? Thank you very much for any help provided.
  4. I want to matting area manually so I turn matte edges off and draw matte brush by my self but nothing happen to photo. When I draw matte brush, Red mark appear ,"Refine selection" loading appear but nothing happen. Matte brush work when Matte edges turn on, but I want to matte only some area. Did I done something wrong?
  5. Affinity Photo 1.6.7 Live Filter Layer thumbnails and Mask Layer thumbnails in the layers panel remain white at all times and don't reflect changes to the mask (inverting the mask, painting areas in or out, etc.). However, adding any new layer causes the previous layer's thumbnail to display properly with the alpha correctly represented. Adjustment Layer thumbnails still behave as they should, when they should. This is only a problem with the thumbnails of Live Filter Layers and Mask Layers.
  6. Hello, I am getting inconsistent behaviour between colour and monochrome documents when it comes to painting in masks or mask layers. What I am doing is using the paint brush tool to paint black on a white mask or white on a black mask. - in colour documents, the behaviour is as expected and everything works normally - but in monochrome documents i.e. where Document > Colour Format is set to a monochrome option, in my case 16bit, Affinity Photo only permits painting black on a white mask. Painting white on a black mask simply has no effect. I have made sure I have the white colour selected and pressing <alt+click> on the mask (to display the mask) confirms this behaviour. This is very frustrating as it means constantly having to invert the mask to try to get correct behaviour. Any help would be much appreciated. Nigel
  7. Good Morning, I ran into an issue with AP two days ago and have been trying to fix it unsuccessfully since. I am working on a file that has 2 photos (.tiff files) as layers. I create a mask layer on one of the layers and use the brush tool to blend the 2 layers. This was no issue since I am using the software, but now it is so slow that it takes several seconds until the brush strokes finally go into effect. It is impossible to work with. I tried to restore windows to an early recovery point, installed several different versions of AP and tried to change the settings, but nothing has worked so far. I also tried to do the same in Photoshop, just to make sure it was not an issue with my hardware acceleration or something like that, but it works instantly there. It would be great if someone could help me fix this issue. Thanks, Ben
  8. Hello. I think that it might be a cool feature of the "haze removal" to create a layer's mask, instead of modifying the layer content. I assume that this plugin does scene depth estimation. I so, it should be possible to generate mask with levels corresponding to the estimation results. This mask could be use with levels, curves and other tools (or other bitmap layers). Regards. BitPC
  9. Hello, when i try to add a layer mask to a layer in Affinity Photo on the mac, the layer mask will appear over the selected layer and i have to drag it on to the layer. i think that this is not the correct behavior of the add mask button? is there any solution?
  10. When manipulating a layer mask by using the paint brush tool or even simply inverting it, the corresponding layer icon/thumbnail in the layer stack does not update.
  11. I would like to request that if I want to add a mask layer that it does a couple things automatically considering this is a conventional workflow for most: 1. When I select a layer to add an empty reveal all mask I would want it to be auto-selected and ready to paint on. 2. Change brush color swatches to be black and white, but black to start since I created a reveal all mask in the step before.
  12. Howdy friends, I've run into a bit of an issue and I'm hoping (praying) somebody can help me figure this out... I've attempted to use the mask layer on text to bring out part of the background picture. I've succeeded in doing this on (2) pictures, but on the third, I must've hit something -- fat thumbs -- as the mask is just erasing my text. Even when I delete the text, start over, and try to mask layer, it vanishes. When I copy/paste other text/mask layers from previous pictures, it still vanishes. When I try to do this on a completely different artboard, it vanishes. I'm horribly confused by this and have tried to fix it for the past 45 min. with no such luck. Please help?!
  13. The new beta seems really stable. Loving it! I find, frustratingly, that sometimes the hardest things to figure out in Affinity are the simplest ones. Which leaves me asking very elementary questions that I feel I should be able to solve for myself. Embarrassing. So anyway here goes. 1) How do I apply an adjustment (Levels in this case) to a mask layer so as to adjust only the mask layer and not the pixel layer to which is attached? I have tried every level of nesting and grouping I can think of, and have searched everywhere seemingly relevant in Help, but cannot achieve this simple thing. It's very frustrating ....... 2) Can I suppress bounding boxes and view (for example the fine adjustment of a layer FX) without the visual distraction of the bounding box. On very small objects this would be really helpful. 3) And, on the subject of layer FX, can I convert layer FX to layers? This is a great application. One day I'll get there ............. ;)
  14. Hi everyone, I'm totally new to graphic design. I've been working on a portrait for a couple of days, teaching myself the basics of AD as I go. Currently I'm trying to create a pixel layer so that I can use the pixel brush to add some highlights onto my subject's face. I have already used this method once to add some shading, which went well. However, when I now go to do the same thing for highlights, the indicator showing where my brushing will be applied appears to have a tracer circle that follows the main circle around, and when I try to add the highlight color, instead the brush tool removes the original fill color from the object that I am trying to highlight (please see attached screenshot). Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong, or help me figure out how to fix this? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Have a great day! Ryan
  15. Hello everyone. I am new to Affinity so I apologise if the question has already been answered. My render software produces images/renders as well as alpha channels (black and white raster graphics). How do I copy an alpha channel into an empty mask layer? Thank you for your help Best regards Soundtraveller
