cutting out an image & pasting it in a new layer with Designer 2

Recommended Posts

Hi @Ken Brunskill

The fastest way is to "power duplicate" the object (e.g. image) with ctrl + j.

Select the object and press ctrl + j. 


In retrospect, I think you want to crop an object. To do this, you need to switch to the Pixel Persona. Then, for example, select the object to be cut by painting over it with the Selection Brush. Then click on "Refine..." and rework the selection as desired. Finally, select one of the four options under Output.
