Where am I going wrong, please?

I want to cut out the policeman’s cap.

1 I crop the image so I can see just the cap.

2 I cut out using the pen tool

3 I click mask

4 I Cmd-C and Cmd-V into a new Affinity Photo file.

See RBhBwyuhb6K3E2Y1AnDVaIsa9z4hkk

The issue I have is that this takes over the cropped elements of the file.

Help appreciated!

Cropping in Affinity Photo is non-destructive. Use the ‘Rasterize and Trim’ command to bake it in.
