  1. Hi, I try to create macros which operate with various changes to selection. In order to restore selection at end of macro, I save them to Spare channel in beginning of macro and Load them from Spare Channel, then delete Spare Channel at end of macro. First the macro seems to work correctly. However if there are already some Spare Channels, the macro fails to target the correct Spare Channel for deletion, and deletes the pre-existing Spare Channel, leaving the newly created temporary spare channel. At the least macros should record that the Spare Channel deleted was the same that was created within the same macro. Or Spare Channel operations in Macros should be recorded in a similar fashion as layer operations, with symbolic references like "topmost layer". Or allow for Spare Channel rename at creation time in macros, and record the channel name for the channel deletion event.
  2. Like the title says. I’m unable to apply a spare channel to the alpha of an adjustment layer. The function is present, like on the desktop version, but it seems that the spare channels on the iPad version are all locked to target the background layer. When I select a different active layer in the layer’s studio, it doesn’t become the new target for the spare channels. As a workaround, I have to load the spare channel to the active selection, BEFORE loading an adjustment layer. Making the active selection the mask as the adjustment is being applied. That’s cool, but it makes it hard to A/B different spare channels as the alpha of an adjustment. Here’s what I’m trying to do on the iPad version:
  3. Hi, When cropping a document, the pixel content removed is only hidden and not removed. One needs to click on rasterize on each pixel layer to actually remove the cropped pixels. This is already pretty painful, and not clear what to do with pixel layers with adjustment child layers when you would like to keep the child layer, but remove cropped image area. Rasterize also bakes in the adjustment. However Spare Channels do not even have the rasterize option, so if you had any Spare Channels before cropping they retain hidden but stored pixels outside of your canvas. One problem is that these continue to consume memory and file size, but I have encountered another issue as well, as described below: I had a sky with some electric wires to inpaint. I made a selection of the wires and saved to spare channel. I have cropped the image and rasterized the pixel layer. I returned to removing the wires by loading the spare channel to selection. This resulted in a selection partially outside of the canvas, which was not obvious at all, as the marching ants are only drawn inside of the canvas. When using inpaint with such a selection silly things happen, such as inpaint making the pixels transparent. I see three alternate solutions to make the working of cropping consistent: - Make crop have an option to remove the cropped content (preferred solution) - Have a separate function in menu to remove all content (pixel, masks, embedded mask and spare channel content) that was cropped earlier. - Have a context menu entry for spare channels to remove the cropped content (identical to rasterize for pixel layers)

  5. It would be handy when making a spare channel you get the option of renaming it straight away instead of afterwards.
  6. Hi I'd followed yours video Channels for Alpha MaskingI found that right click on a spare channel is possible only near to the trash. No click, left or right, is possible on the name area of channel like I seen in yours video. I use Affinity Photo on iMac- italian language. best regards Marcello
  7. Is there a way to view and edit spare channels in Affinity Photo?
