  1. I use Affinity Photo with the pen on a Lenovo A940 touchscreen. Since the update to 1.8 the patch tool does not work any more with the pen. After drawing the selection and moving to the source, it behaves normally until I click to apply the source. Instead of applying the source the selection is lost, so nothing changes. I can get around this only when I apply the source with the mouse instead of the pen. This is pretty cumbersome, and I would appreciate to get this fixed.
  2. Hi, I Use Affinity Photo 1.7.2 on my Mac Mojave 10.14.1 In recent times whenever i use the patch tool on a photo and if the area is large it crashes my Affinity photo RAM usage is set at 9216 MB Please help, Thank You
  3. Hi! I've got some issue with Patch Tool. When I'm using it, my photo in the place I choose to replace, becomes blurry. It looks so if I was changing the transparent settings to low, but that's not true. I have no idea what I could do with this problem. Have any one of you got issue like this one?
  4. In this video, you will see how to use patch tools in affinity photos and how to remove unwanted content from any photo, Its very easy, Pick up the patch tool and draw a selection around the area you want to patch, then move the cursor away to the area you want to use as the source for the patching, then click the left mouse button to apply it to that area when you are happy with the preview. I hope you like it.
  5. When doing portrait retouching, I use the patch tool to repair certain areas of the skin. In Photoshop there is an option to fade the selection. This makes the patch beautifully fade in with the surroundings and is practically invisible. I us this a lot. I can't find this in Affinity Photo. Is there a way to make this work?
  6. Hi, i’m using an iPad Pro 12.9” and iOS 11 the most recent version, plus the most recent version of Affinity Photo. i’ve noticed That when I use the Patch Tool or the Healing brush tool do more than just their usual duty and also slightly blur the part of the image I use them to paint over. It kind of kills the detail of the picture. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a setting that effects this? often times I use the frequency separation filter and when I do, my hope is that the high frequency layer will remain in clear detail, but the Healing brush or and patch Tool just blur everything...
  7. Hi, I have encountered an overlapping problem with Patch tool selection. When I am selecting with that tool and I do come over the already selected area crossing it twice it does deselect that area - quite strange feature :( It does it surprisingly also in ADD mode.... Thanks Jindra
  8. The Healing Brush, Patch, Blemish Removal and Inpainting Tools will not work after I apply a layer. For example, I attempted to use the Frequency Separation as outlined in the Affinity tutorial: https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/tutorials/photo/ As soon as I applied the Frequency Separation Filter, however, the tools would not work. I followed the instructions to the letter and every time I added a layer the tools stopped working. I had the same issue whenever I opened and worked with other layers. The tools only worked if I used them on my photo before opening any layers. What am I missing or doing wrong?
  9. hello, it looks like photo's patch tool works only if the "current layer & below" option is selected, even when the image has only one layer. here's what i experimented: 1) load a jpg image in photo 2) be sure its only pixel layer is selected 3) click on the patch tool 4) drag the mouse on the image to select the area to be patched 5) hover the mouse elsewhere over the image: the content of the selection changes reflecting what is around the current position of the mouse 6) click to apply the patch the selected area shows the original pixels again and the patch is not applied 7) now, in the patch tool options, select "current layer & below" 8) repeat steps 2 to 5 the patch is applied and the selected area is surrounded with a frame that allows turning and resizing 9) click outside the frame described above the frame and the selection's marching ants disappear and the patch is definitively (destructively) applied now this is quite a strange behavior to me: i would not expect having to select "current layer & below", since i am working with only one pixel layer. note that if i create a new empty pixel layer, select this one new layer and use the patch tool on it after choosing "current layer & below, everything works as expected: the selection shows the image in the original layer below ad is applied to the new layer when i click after hovering, leaving the original one untouched. this allows to patch non destructively. thanks for any suggestion or explanation.
