Mask preview during brushing

Recommended Posts

I tried to search this topic, but it's possible too simple or I am missing something as a new user.

Is there a way to preview mask during brushing it?

Alt+click gives black and white preview that can help in general idea, but currently I don't know how to do fine brushing when I need image layer as a reference.

Tutorial examples usually show filled layers when one distinct colour appear over another, while I have problem with filter masking like clarity filter, where changed are not so visible.

Thanks, i will try it soon, I am just at the beginning phase of learning, but find many interesting things.

For now, it looks that reducing opacity on fill layer and painting on it could solve this, thought I still don't fully understand how things work with masks, while Affinity looks very flexible, offering alternative options, which is really promising for my way of working.


...oh, I tried it in the meantime and that's exactly what I needed, as simple as pressing Q, but hard to find without some help or reaching the back cover of help index.
