Fill circle with Image

Recommended Posts

I'd like to fill a circle with a bitmap image. The forums told to use the gradient fill on the shape an select bitmap. Unfortunately I don't have the bitmap option (I have the german version activated, but there is nothing similar) in my Affinity Designer 1.4. How can I do that?


Is it as Alternative possible to cut a circle out of a bitmap with the geometry tool?


In the attached File I'd like to place the bitmap in the inner white circle to get a button with the image and a black border.


Before I draw that in InkScape or before in CorelDraw, but I'd like to switch to Affinity ...

Hi siebente,

Welcome to Affinity Forums,

Just drag the image in the Layers panel over the white circle layer (you should see a thin blue line appear below the circle layer. If you wait a few moment before releasing the mouse button Affinity will also show a preview on canvas of what you will get when you release the mouse button.


Another way to do it, is to select the image, go to menu Edit -> Copy, then select the white circle layer and go to menu Edit -> Paste Inside.
