No amount of Tolerance on Flood Select Tool lets me select just the shirt


Recommended Posts

I'm going to hazard a guess that there are coloured pixels around the edge of the image but those particular pixels have very low opacity so they are not immediately visible to humans.

I suspect the Flood Select Tool selects by RGB values but ignores the transparency value (Alpha) when making its decision as to if the colour falls within the tolerance range you have selected.

Hence the selection looking the way it does on this particular image

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.

I just checked and that's exactly what it was.
So Affinity Photo does not take transparency into account, but Photoshop does. Sounds like a checkbox is in order! :)
Thanks.
