Photo Persona won't draw everywhere ...

Recommended Posts


I've encountered a strange behaviour when using the Photo Persona within publisher. Can't reproduce the same thing whithin Affinity Photo!

I add a new layer and select the brush tool with a simple black brush.

I click and hold to draw a fancy house with one stroke. Fine. Works.

But now: After this I want to completely cover the house with black by drawing over it again. On the same layer. So I click and hold the mouse button again an start drawing all over the area with the house. Photo Persona leaves a fine white seam that I can't draw over! Don't think it's supposed to work this way... Or is it?

You do not use the painting brush but the colour change brush.

... I'm still not used to Affinity switching tools by simply clicking the hotkey a second time, in PS I had to hit Shift additionally.

You can set that up in the preferences Preferences > Tools

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.
