How can I select this object accurately


Recommended Posts

hi there.

I can't seem to select this item accurately in Affinity. The Flood select tool cannot workout the edges, and the refinement options don't seem to improve the selection either.
Is there some way I can do this or maybe it's not possible because its difficult for the software to indentify the image edges from the background?

Thanks

Use the Selection Brush Tool

A small brush around the inner edges then larger brush to select the rest

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

Thanks for the replies. Thanks @thatguy for the great video.
This is proving to be not as easy as I thought it might be, it's both a science and an art - even something like selecting an image!
I will try to do with with the raw file and follow this video,  maybe with the raw file I can get the edges a bit sharper and defined.

I would have thought it would have been much easier to select the pen tool due to its very easy shape, then refine the edges?

Microsoft - Like entering your home and opening the stainless steel kitchen door, with a Popup: 'Do you really want to open this door'? Then looking for the dishwasher and finding it stored in the living room where you have to download a water supply from the app store, then you have to buy microsoft compliant soap, remove the carpet only to be told that it is glued to the floor.. Don't forget to make multiple copies of your front door key and post them to all who demand access to all the doors inside your home including the windows and outside shed.

Apple - Like entering your home and opening the oak framed Kitchen door and finding the dishwasher right in front you ready to be switched on, soap supplied, and water that comes through a water softener.  Ah the front door key is yours and it only needs to open the front door.

Have you tried "Fllod Select Tool > Tolerance:"  with small values like 1%, 2%...?
