  1. Masking only mask selected area. To have an inverse mask use Shift or Alt key then click on mask they goes to inverse mask otherwise they work normal.
  2. Hello there! Been enjoying Publisher so much, all my work is done fast and with great quality. However I encountered a very serious bug that will destroy hours of effort in no time, it goes as the following: Here we have the following master page: I've made masks around every object like the paperclips, the folder, the pages. Then, I decide to duplicate the master page: After duplicating it, the duplicate removes the masks of objects, usually at random. The mask I made remains but like a dummy, un-cheking it and checking it again in the layers panel does nothing. Plus, this very same issue is applied to the original master page as well: Sometimes an object will disappear but will remain in the layers panel, not even showing in the resource manager tool. Has anybody else encountered this issue? Hours and hours of work can go down the drain with this issue.
  3. Coming from photoshop here..... In this image I added a saturation layer, completely desaturated and I want to paint it back in on the computer hardware. When I press "Q" the mask is just fully red. I cannot actually see my paint marks to be more accurate? How the hell do I see this!?
  4. UPDATED: paint brush DOES NOT WORK when painting a mask as shown in affinity tutorial 2 pixel layers, black mask on the top one, I select the brush and white paint and try to paint on the mask, nothing happens. Am I missing something? you paint masks with black and white to mask out or in things right? EDIT: can confirm even after watching affinity tutorial on masking, paint bursh does not work atall on a mask, it doesn't wor for painting white nor black, the only available thing is to "paint" the mask with the eraser tool, operation which is not reversable. Help, there must be something wrong
  5. How do I use a pixel layer containing a greyscale image as a layer mask so that white pixels show the current layer and black pixels hide the current layer, and grey shades in between represent partial transparancy? In the screenshot (attached) I want to use the black and white picture of the skull to mask the green square so that I end up with a green skull where the white is, and the black are would be transparent. any grey pixels would be different levels of transparancy. I really need step by step instructions as I just don't understand how to do this in AP as I am so used to doing it in Adobe Photoshop. Thanks
  6. Hi... I have a thing that make me crazy... the cropping tool does not works as photoshop. when you crop a picture, the image still exists beyond limits, same happens when you mask something... so i export a part of a picture but the image resulting is not only the selected item that i want to export. A masked object is exported (blank) beyond its limits creating a exported image with incorrect dimensions. I try to use the slice tool but does not work for me... is there any way to export what we see, not the whole masked objects... is so unproductive to export and load the image to cut it Thanks
  7. How can I turn my curve into a selection so that I can continue working with it? Or is this function not yet available?
  8. Any ideas why this is? I can't work it out. Affinity_Help.mov
  9. Hello Affinity Users Group - I am using Affinity Photo to make a panorama of a mountain scene. I used the brush selection tool to select the sky, at the end of which I used the "Refine" option to improve the details of the boundary between mountain and sky. When I was finished, the boundary between mountain and sky, as delineated by the "marching ants," looked quite good, and at that point I made a mask based on that selection. I was expecting the marching-ant boundary to be perfectly binary, with pure black on one side and pure white on the other. However, when I take a close look at the white-black boundary of the mask, it is not very clean. That is, the white part of the mask near the boundary has a number of gray pixels (within a width of 20-50 pixels or so), and the same is true for the black part of the mask near the boundary. The result is that the mask near the boundary is "leaky." One way to clean this up is to use the brush tool to clean up this "noise," painting white on one side and black on the other. However, my panorama is large, and the white-black boundary has a lot of structure, so a manual repair using the brush tool would be quite tedious and time consuming. Can anyone shed some light as to why I get this leaky boundary, and can you recommend an efficient way of cleaning it up? Thank you.
  10. Hi folks. I searched for this question in the forums but couldn't find it. I have a masked layer and I am trying to use a brush to add more to the layer (ie. I want to reveal more of the item that is being masked). When I use a brush with the color black, it erases more of the basked object, rather than revealing it. What am I doing wrong?
  11. Although I have posted this under other topics before,but I think it should be a bug. When I wanted to use photo for image matting, I found some problems. I selected the part of an image that I wanted to keep, then I clicked on the mask button in the layers palette and moved the whole thing around a bit. I found some remnants of the original image on the edge of the image rectangle. I then realized that this was caused by placing the mask background in white and filling only the currently visible area with black. This is a problem not only for photo and Windows platforms, but also for design and the ios platforms.
  12. Hi there I´am trying to erase part of a mask using the brush in overlay blend mode. It suposse that if the mask is un black and white and the brush in overlay mode, when the brush pass over a white part of the mask, it should not affect whites, but it does. How can I fix this?
  13. Using the Dodge and burn on a mask layer is handy when using to affect only shadows, midtones or highlights. Eg. Dodging a lighter sky through a dark tree. Tx
  14. Hello, When I select a layer and try to apply a mask or an adjustment from the layer's panel buttons for that layer, it creates a mask for all the layers bellow, not only for the select layer. I think it should create a mask for that specific layer selected (the parent layer). To do that I have to grab the new layer mask created and put, manually, under the selected layer. Is this normal? Am I missing some configuration?
  15. I suppose you already have a plan to improve this compatibility but I post this just in case. Raster layer mask of fill layer created in Photoshop become transparency but mask in Affinity. Mask should be preserved as mask if possible like on pixel layers.
  16. Hello everyone Hello Support and Dev Team Would like to know if it is planned to make the Dodge and burn tools to also work on mask (of all type). It is sometime very helpful for white fringes removal during when removing BG. Well until then, Blessings y'All !
  17. I have installed the new 1.7.2. and have opened the last file working on..... did see only grey place until I have unchecked all layers with MASKs! Mask totally do not work! Please how can I quickly return to previous version, this is a TOTAL SHOW STOPPER! Thanks Jindra
  18. When I wanted to use photo for image matting, I found some problems. I selected the part of an image that I wanted to keep, then I clicked on the mask button in the layers palette and moved the whole thing around a bit. I found some remnants of the original image on the edge of the image rectangle. I then realized that this was caused by placing the mask background in white and filling only the currently visible area with black. This is a problem not only for photo and Windows platforms, but also for design and the ios platforms. Of course, I can do this by creating a mask with a black background and then making the selection white, but is it really necessary to go to all that trouble? I mean, it should be natural to set the mask background to black by default when doing this, just like photoshop did. Here are some screenshots of the problem.
  19. Windows 10 build 19603 Designer v 1.8.3.641 edit: also present on 1.8.4.650 beta Steps to reproduce: 1. Document created with multiple artboards. 2. Image applied to one single artboard. 3. Image selected, create mask. Works as expected. 4. Apply fill gradient to mask. Bug: Size of gradient mask applies to size of whole document. Expected behavior: Size of gradient mask should size according to parent image the mask is applied to. Images attached for evidence. Additional related bugs: 1. Click "Reverse Gradient" button in toolbar 2. Mask size changes to an unrelated size.
  20. Hi folks, I am doing the exercises in the Affinity Photo Workbook and am doing the selection exercise. When i selected the girl, and did the refine selection and then copy to new layer with mask, everything seems fine, until I turn off the mask. When I do there are black splotches all around her hair where i refined the selection. See attached screen grabs. Thanks!
  21. I'm following "Affinity Photo Tutorial For Beginners - Top 10 Things Beginners Want to Know". When video instructs me to "apply a mask to a photo" by selecting the Mask Icon the mask layer appears below (and indented) the Background layer. However, when I select Mask Icon the mask layer appears above Background as a separate layer. Attachment 1 - Photo of tutorial screen Attachment 2 - Image of my screen in Affinity Photo on laptop
  22. Hello all! I'm currently facing an issue when exporting one file with some masks (grayscale gradients) as SVG. All these masks are rendered, in the resulting SVG, on the full image size (not only the curve it should apply to). The problem appears with Photo, Designer and Publisher. I've attached to this post the .afphoto version (source) and .svg file (export target). Could someone help me find out if I'm making a mistake, if it's a known limitation of the exporter or a bug? Thanks a lot for your help. Logo.afphoto SVG Result.svg
  23. Looking to find the "create selection from luminance" (alt-ctrl click on layer thumbnail) on the iPad version of Photo. Any clues ?
  24. Hi, when I export my graphic to jpg, the masked picture has pixelated contour (no antialiasing). The probleme comes, when adjustment layers are applied on the path object only. When you move some of my adjustment layers to the pixel layer instead, the probleme is solved and the contour looks nice after export. In my opinion this is bug and it should not mater, on which object adjustments are applied in such case. Affinity Publisher 1.8.3 Wacom-pen.afpub
  25. To speed up workflow, I'd like to request a color behavior change when selecting masks. When selecting a mask, please change foreground/background colors to Black and White. When selecting back onto a pixel or image layer, revert to selected colors. This is a Photoshop behavior I miss very much and I didn't realize how much I missed it as I've spent a LOT of time trying to figure out why my mask wasn't working only to realize I was painting on the mask with a color rather than black/grey/white. Also Thanks for your consideration
