'Color Picker Tool' bug


Recommended Posts

Today when working in Affinity Photo I came across the following bug:

 I selected the ‘Color Picker Tool’, placed the curser on a color in my image, selected the color.

Then, the entire image changed to the selected color.

 For example, when I picked the color yellow from the image, the entire image would turn yellow.

 The only way I could stop the anomaly was to close Affinity Photo, then reopen to reset the software.


The problem has not yet reoccurred.

Hi Psfetku,

Welcome to the forums :)

If the problem re-occurs please could you make a screen recording demonstrating it and then attach it to this thread? This will allow us to investigate this further.


Please tag me using @ in your reply so I can be sure to respond ASAP.

Perhaps you have an Image layer (see Layers panel) selected, and in the Context Toolbar for the Color Picker Tool you have the "Apply to selection" option enabled. 

In that case, picking a color would apply it to the Fill of the Image layer, which seems to be what you've described, @psfetku.
