Affinity Photo – Brush masking problem

Recommended Posts


I'm currently on the trial versions to try the Affinity programs and I consider buying the programs, but there's one thing I can't solve and it's the Masking.

When i try to paint with the Black color to hide parts of the image the result i get is some sort of greyish color and the mask is not compleatly transparent.

I've watched several tutorials and none of them helped me, so I decided to ask the community.

The White color seems to work just fine, but the Black turns to Grey color and i don't know why...


Probably it will be simple fix but i dont know how to solve it.

Thanks, Filip

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

I suspect that this is related to mixing CMYK, RGB and Greyscale in the document type and palette.

I think the following thread will help...
