The Lasso tool is just horrible

Recommended Posts

Well, subj.

Here is the sample I did to demonstrate this.

In the left is the quick scribble I made with graphite brush. In the center is the nice edge that I made with eraser. And in the right is the lasso tool selection deleted (with Antialiasing and Feather 0,2 px, perfect settings in Photoshop). Look how jagged it is. And there is nothing I can do to fix it despite hours of research and experimenting.

It doesn't have to be that bad, quick erasing of unnecessary parts is one of the main functions of the tool.

Perhaps Affinity Photo needs different settings.

Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 11.7.1 
Affinity Designer 2.0.0 | Affinity Photo 2.0.0 | Affinity Publisher 2.0.0 | Beta versions as they appear.

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

Can you please confirm if you are using the pixel persona in Designer or Affinity Photo, if it is in Designer is your graphite brush raster or vector based.

The effect is the same both in Designer and in Photo. First image was from Designer, but here I re-created it in Photo.

Yes, brushes are raster based.
