  1. How can I transform a selection? In Adobe Photoshop the action was performed by creating a marquee selection and then hitting "Command-T" This would allow me to stretch an area thus removing an unwanted area. Thanks in advance!
  2. Hello ! I noticed a bug that (seemingly) only happens when, instead of opening a file from my drive, I copy an image from the web then create a new file and paste it as a layer : when I want to isolate a part of that layer, I make a selection around that part, then either cut that selection to copy it to another layer or invert the selection and delete the rest. But here, in both cases, the whole layer gets cut or deleted, not taking my selection into account. I tried to do this through keyboard shortcuts and through the Edit menu, to the same result. I also noticed that copying and pasting a selection also copies and pastes the whole layer.
  3. Hello, and sorry if the question have been asked before, but I would like to know if there is a function that would select automatically the "similar objects" according to stroke colour, fill colour, and other parameters. I used this function before in illustrator (Unfortunately, I no longer have it to check) and it was very useful, particularly when you have tones of layers. One of the top reason I may use it is when I am trying to select die-cuts marks on small objects (think small stickers scattered on a big sheet of paper and needed to be cut with let's a say a plotter) We use the same artwork to print the packaging and in that case, I need to get rid of the die-cut marks (they are all with the same stroke colour). The way I was doing in Illustrator was to select one die cut and "auto-select" all the others based on the reference selected stroke colour. If it doesn't exist yet, I'd raise my voice for a feature request Thanks!
  4. Take an image. Paint on it with a soft Erase Brush to see checkerboard beneath (I used Hardness = 50%). Select/Selection from Layer -- creates alpha selection of non-transparent pixels, including feathering (alpha > 0). Invert Pixel Selection, (so selection is all pixels with alpha < 1). Clone something from the unerased image to the selected area. Paint it thoroughly up to the edges of the selection. Deselect selection. You can now see a line of partially transparent pixels (alpha <1). Select Alpha Range, Partially Transparent and it will select this outline. This looks like the Selection From Layer is not selecting all pixels where alpha > 0. This is problematic when I want to select all pixels which are not fully opaque with the selection honouring the alpha level. Yes, selecting Partially Transparent will select pixels where alpha < 1, but it does a hard selection, not a feathered one, leading to visible hard edges in subsequent use.
  5. Hi, To remove the background around an object in a photo I can use the pen tool and draw a shape above it then use that shape as a mask. I want to use a selection made with the selection brush, turn it into a shape to save me time. (I find adjusting shape masks much more efficient than playing with selections.) Is this conversion from selection to vector shape possible in Affinity Designer? Thanks
  6. Why does it select content outside the selection when using refine selection?
  7. Hi, I was testing out the Node Tool Selection Lasso. With Node Tool selected, Alt-Drag around the intended nodes to select on your open shape. Sometimes the lasso will select nodes not within the lasso boundaries. Seems to happen when starting a lasso and it is ambiguous as to which "side" the selection is going to be. I uploaded a screenshot of the entire shape I was playing with. Admittedly one would probably not be using a shape like this for anything, but worth noting how it affects the lasso selection. The two screen grab videos show the irregular behaviour. 2019-03-12_08-12-28.mp4 2019-03-12_08-17-17.mp4
  8. Hello, is there any shortcut to use will have a selection tool to change between add and subtract instantly? Like in PS? This will make my life waaaay easier. thank you!
  9. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher 1.7.0.257. The attached GIF shows what's happening better than I can explain it. Basically, selecting some cells from the bottom table actually selects some cells in the upper table, sometimes. Same document that I attached to this post: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/80965-spacing-between-table-cells-in-affinity-publisher/&tab=comments#comment-426146
  10. The pixel selection brush does not work on pixel objects when it is placed outside an artboard (i.e. the pasteboard). What's up with that?
  11. In both AP and AD, I have created a reference layer (1), placed a photo on it, and lock that layer. Another layer (2) was created and is being used to hold elements traced from the locked layer. The problem, I cannot box-select the elements on the second layer if the box begins over the photo on the locked layer. Even though layer one is locked it get selected. I can also just click on the background image on that locked layer and select it, of course, I can't do anything with it once selected...because it is locked. The question: Is there a setting I am missing that prevents the object on the locked layer (or locked object) from being selected? Seems to me that if something is truly locked I should not be able to select it. Thank -Bill
  12. I have asked this very basic question before but never received an answer. So I am trying again. Is there a way to draw a circular (or rectangular) selection from a centre point? With the shape tool and all transformations this is done in a consistent manner by holding down the Cmd key. With selections the Cmd key is (inconsistently) elsewhere assigned. Since most of my selections end up being converted to a mask layer I have a work around by drawing a shape layer and then rasterising to a mask and dragging it in the layers palette to where I need it. But it's irritating and seems rather unnecessary. Am I missing something embarrassingly obvious here? :unsure:
  13. Dear Serif. I purchased A Photo last night and was really put off by what I believe to be sub-par selection tools. I tried trimming an image with the polygonal selection tool, but the results are very rough and ugly, even with anti aliasing ticked. I will post images soon. Are you aware of this? Will it be fixed soon. It's not acceptable and actually not ready for commercial use in my opinion.
  14. Bonjour Je cherche comment couper un morceau d'image avec l'outil "sélection rectangulaire" je pensais qu'il fallait juste sélectionner la partie à couper et ensuite "ctrl + X" mais ça ne marche pas, cela supprime toute l'image merci pour votre aide
  15. How can I turn my curve into a selection so that I can continue working with it? Or is this function not yet available?
  16. I see that Circle, Square, etc. Marquee Selection Tools have anti-alias in the menu, but when you use Flood selection and brush selection, they don't. Any reason why? Normally anti-alias is the preferred way to select, but there is no way to "enable" this for these two selection modes.
  17. I want to remove the white from this image, I've adjusted the Levels so the whites are completely white & blacks are completely black. I've gone to the selection tab & tried the 'Select sample colour' but i can't find a way to make it work. I've spent the last 3 hours looking at youtube tutorials, FAQ's & forums yet i have no idea what i'm doing right or wrong, please help.
  18. Dearest forum members I fell in love with affinity photo and -designer and am getting a lot of work done. Thank you devs. There is an issue with my way of thinking and I'm sure I'm just one little step aside. I scanned a ink splatter and wish to create a outline of it to print only the outline. The selection is easy and even giving it a stroke, but the moment I deselect the selection area, the artboard is empty. I tried to rasterize, tried to create a new layer with the selection selected and created a stroke but again, the moment I deselect, the artboard is empty. It's like I'm just doing some little mistake but can not find out what it is. The forum post show that a lot of designer wish to stroke a selection and some tips are not bad, but none of them work. I created a "style" but again, the stroke will not remain . Please help. Kindest regards Urs
  19. I hesitate to post in this august place, but I think one of my selection techniques has not been explicitly described before.. This video is aimed at real world outdoor photography which is often taken under less than ideal conditions; and where we need to cheat because there was not a camera there when we wanted one.. This image is a composite. It was constructed in Affinity Photo. The video is a workflow demonstration - it is not good enough to be called a tutorial. Outdoor activities can often be difficult to photograph. My pastime is sailing, and I now have a motorboat. It is surprisingly difficult to get images of your own boat at sea. So you have to use what you can beg, borrow, or steal. The video is about using a photo taken by a friend, taken from a moving platform(another boat) under less than ideal weather conditions. We take the image and transform it so it can be used in an entirely different context. I have used three techniques described in official Serif Affinity videos by James Ritson. They are "Bringing Out Water Detail" <a href="https://vimeo.com/202899215" rel="noreferrer nofollow">vimeo.com/202899215</a> "HDR from one exposure" <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ar6CZvfyFvk&feature=youtu.be" rel="noreferrer nofollow">www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ar6CZvfyFvk&feature=youtu.be</a> "Making Images Pop" <a href="https://vimeo.com/178575803" rel="noreferrer nofollow">vimeo.com/178575803</a> The first part of the video deals with enhancing the basic image, including two different applications of tone mapping. The second part deals with four different approaches to selection, to deal with different aspects of the image and how to combine them. I have not seen the use of the pen tool to create fine detail precise selections before, but maybe I did not look far enough. So far as I know, it is a first. The same problems apply to a lot of outdoor activities including windsurfing, climbing, motocross, horse riding. Wherever there is equipment, wild background, fine details (such as reins or ropes) then complex selection may be needed so you can blag an exciting picture. Please view
  20. Affinity Designer for iPad. I cant find tutorial about „selection of objects and nodes“. There was one... i want to look it again. Can somebody post the link, please? thankyou for Support. MMMax
  21. Hello Peoples ! Coming again here but with few questions that you may like or not but i believe it is quite useful to ask. All my questions here are based on Beta version of Affinity Photo not on the stable version and they're intended for understanding and helping to improve what already exist and not to raise comparatives between Apples and Oranges. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Object: The Ring Function! I've been using it (not that much) since it was added to HSL Adjustment; well i really enjoy it and found it very useful when it comes to narrow and make precise color selection ...but i only see it in few of the adjustment layer that aims to work on colors. Q: Don't you think Recolor adjustment needs it to ? --------------------------------------------------------------------- Object: I've seen that there is the gear icon on the bottom right of adjustment layer when we have them opened but for unknown reason it does nothing when i click on it. Q: What it is intended to do or achieve ? --------------------------------------------------------------------- Object: As we all know that there is not enough online tutorial talking about really crazy tricks with Affinity Photo, i usually watch PS tutos and work on applying them in my AP workflow and they just work but ... for some reason i get lost when it come to do the Blend if thing. Q: Can you please point to a tutorial talking about that in details or simply share here how you do Blend if with Affinity Photo ? --------------------------------------------------------------------- Object: i often use the blend ranges function and just found it not working even if you click a million times on that gear. Q: Bug or me missing something ? Possible to fix it ? --------------------------------------------------------------------- Object: Let say i select a red color and want to add more to already selected using the same method, well ! on other software such as PS i would simply sample more color selection color by clicking Shift + Click and drag or click to add to already selected color. Q: How to that with Affinity Photo ? --------------------------------------------------------------------- Object: It is really useful to save selection made on a Photo or any other pixel related stuff but in the same time i personally found it to be quite hidden, burried into menues. Q: Possible to create a button on related tools (Sel. Brush - Flood Sel. etc.) next to the refine tool that allows that to be done without trying to find it in the menu ? -------------------------------------------------------------------- Object: in this last one, i will come to something i already asked about but i see no change until now. Let's talk about Masks (also i target adjustment layer because i love using their masking functionality). Okay ! Let's create a mask and press cmd/ctrl+i to invert it ... it stays the same i mean pure white when it should turn black (actually dark grey) when inverted and even when i paint with the brush tool on the mask it shows after i do another action such as cmd/ctrl+s or switch to another and start using it. Quite bad hein ! Q1: it is possible to fix this and make work as it should ? Q2: Possible to make the painting on mask more live and less delayed ? Okay ! Here i'm done with this. few here you will understand are bugs that need to be corrected and few other are kind of request but i count them as things that needs to be corrected at this level of development of Affinity Photo and what i point to here should also be checked and if possible get applied to Affinity Designer and Affinity Publisher because all 3 are based on the same principle and should not grow independently one another when it comes to these basic stuffs. Blessing to Y'all and don't forget it is not to raise a troll but to help improve the software.
  22. Hello again dear community, as I am very new to Affinity for iPad I am once again seeking help. So essentially what I want to do is blend a sky image to a foreground image. The issue is the foreground image has a lot of trees and small details and on the sky layer I am using a mask to only draw on part of that area. What i wanna do is go down to one layer make a selection based on color because i see that as the fastest way then have that selection applied to the mask layer of the other layer so I can only paint without affecting the foreground image. Posting a screen of it, hopefully someone can help out
  23. in Designer for iPad I have objects that appear to be select when they are not. The only way for this to go away is to exit and close the document, then reopen, though the problem come right back after a short time. See red-ish lines in attached image.
  24. Hi all, When working with crazy amount of layers (PDF imported in this case) it is much faster to select the object in the canvas and not guessing which one is in the Layer list, but the problem comes when I select the object and I want to see where is that layer in the Layers panel, is there any shortcut or any other way to do this? I hope it makes sense. Cheers, Juan
  25. EDIT: Nevermind! I figured out what I was doing wrong. Thank you, though! I'm using Affinity Photo. This is the scenario: I have an 14 x 9 inch (landscape) jpg of an advertisement that I need to edit to fit an 8.5 x 11 inch (portrait) page. I need to cut and paste parts of the ad around in order to do this. I created an 8.5 x 11 inch document. Next, I placed the image onto the document. Naturally, some of the image falls off the document. As an image layer, I am unable to select part of the image, cut it and paste it onto a new layer. What happens is the entire image gets pasted onto the new layer. So, I converted the image layer into a pixel layer. Now, I am able to select a portion, cut and paste into a new layer, but the rest of the image (the part that fell off the document bounds) has disappeared. It has been clipped to the canvas. Unclipping the canvas is pointless because although it now shows the entire image, it defeats the purpose of creating an 8.5 x 11 document in the first place. What am I doing wrong? In Photoshop, I'm able to create a document of whatever size, place or drag in an image of any size, and manipulate the image as I need to and the parts that fall off the document bounds are still there.
