Sometimes I need to expand an image to change its ratio. In gimp I would use the "Canvas Size" function first and then "Layer to image size". 

In Affinity Photo I have been able to resize the canvas but found no option to change layer sizes. Am I missing something?

Hi Mbert,

 

Welcome to the Forums :)

 

If you go to Document > Resize Document it will resize your image as well as your Canvas. I hope this helps :)

Hi Callum

I have a similar problem and am not sure Resize Document is the answer. I want to superimpose one photo over another, but the front layer is too big - I want to reduce that in size so it has the correct proportions to make the montage.

I cannot find any solution to give to each layer the same overall size as the actual document.
I need this function to export parts of image, being the same size, to recompose perfectly in video editor software.
Can you help me?

A workaround is to stack the layers as you want them and then apply the crop tool. However the crop tool is non-destructive so you need to trim. Unfortunately you need to apply the Rasterize and Trim action to each layer individually.  IU found this out by trial and error!
