Hello--apologies for this simple question. Newbie here.


I have scanned from a simple sketch on paper and placed it in AD. My issue is that the 'white' background paper (and its ever greyer paper edges) shows and I don't know how to eliminate it simply. Is there a simple button fix? Do I have to mask? Erase? I was hoping for an easy solution since I will be scanning dozens like this. All help appreciated. I attached the document.


Cheers, Connie

Hi Connie,


To remove the background paper you would need to use a Mask in Affinity Designer.


If you tried doing this in Affinity Photo, it would just be a case of clicking Filters>Colours>Remove White Paper.  This worked really well on the scan you attached, despite the grey colour of the paper.  Perhaps check out the Release Candidate while it's still free.  Just follow the steps in this post
