Affinity Photo on iPad - selection to layer with mask crash

Recommended Posts

I apologize if this has been covered before but I have not seen an answer. I have Photo on iPad and every time I use the selection brush tool, refine my selection and export as mask with new layer Photo crashes. This is EXTREMELY bothersome as I would much rather work on the iPad version (using Apple Pencil) then work on my desktop version of Affinity Photo (I have Photo and Designer on both iPad and desktop as well as Publisher on desktop). I LOVE the products but if you could tell me (1) if I am missing something and/or (2) when the export selection functions have been fixed I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks so much!

Hi ChrisGS and Welcome to the Forums,

Which model iPad do you have?  I tried it on an iPad Air and while there was a delay after clicking, it created the new layer and mask without issue.  There was a delay of about 20ish seconds where it looked like nothing was happening, but it then jumped back to life :) 

Also can you make sure you have the latest update for Photo installed from the App Store and also try restarting the iPad.

I have the same problem. I use Affinity Photo on an iPad Air 2. I have the latest version of Photo and iPad IOS. When I refine the selection and save the mask as a new layer, the program crashes. I have reinstalled Photo and restarted the iPad but it does not work. Thanks for your support.

Sorry for the delay In responding. I have an iPad Air 3rd generation running OS 13.3.1 and Affinity Photo 1.8.3. Does that help? Guidance?

I think I have seen this problem before, just make sure you are selecting a PIXEL layer and not an IMAGE layer. Look in the layers studio if you are unsure. This often happens if you have used the place method to import an image, you must rasterise that image layer before you try to create a selection. Hope this helps.


Affinity Photo 1.8, Designer 1.8, Publisher 1.8 on MACOS Catalina and Windows 10.

Thank you very much for your reply. I have tried to do it as you say and unfortunately it does not work for me either. But thank you very much for your help.

According  to someone on Twitter, it happens only when "Output" is "New layer" or "New layer with Mask."

Environment
