Hi,

 

I know you're trying to keep this limited to Affinity Photo but it's the one feature AD is lacking for me. I work designing websites for e-commerce and I often need to cut out product images from white backgrounds. The work isn't complicated enough to require a dedicated piece of photo software like AP so I'm not going to spend an additional 40 quid for it. I'd like to see it added to AD. 

 

This feature is literally the last thing that's keeping me from removing Photoshop completely from my mac.

 

Thanks

Hi jimble, and welcome here …  :)

 

Well, as a temporary solution you can create a pixel selection from any vector shape in Affinity Designer … create a closed path around the object you want to isolate, apply a fill, but no stroke, and Option + Click the path shape (or the respective entry) in the Layers list … you will create a pixel selection around your shape by doing so …  :)

Alternatively, the path shape can have your image pasted inside, thereby creating a mask for the image.

Lifesavers. This will definitely do for now. Thanks so much. :D
