Dear all,

in Potoshop I could use 'Replace content' for a image in a layer to replace an transformed and positioned image. So new image will get same transformation and positioning as the prevoius one. Just image content is replaced. Is there any similar in Affinity photo?

 

Explanation:

I have several layers. In the bottom layer I want to replace the image with another image of same size. How can I easily replace that?

This step I need multiple times. I need to replace that single image and print the document, then replace the image again and print the document and so on.

 

Thanks...

I expected that function in the RMB context menu as well. Just for completeness reasons and if you are working in the UI-less mode.

Thanks for the reply, but it would be possible a screenshot, thank you.

 

If you can't see the 'Replace Image' button when you select the image with the Move Tool, post a screenshot of the Context toolbar and someone will annotate it for you.

Hi,

 

I am having exactly the same problem as above but the screenshots are missing so I can't see the help given.

I am using Affinity Photo on Mac in case that makes a difference.

 

I would be really grateful for a speedy answer as I need to get a blog post ready to upload, thank you so much

The "Replace Image" button only shows up if you have an Image layer selected with the Move tool. It will not work if the layer is a Pixel layer. The easiest way to get an Image layer into your document is by using the place command, rather than the Open... command or by using Copy and Paste. However, once you have "placed" an image into your document, selecting the Move tool lets you use the Replace Image button. (see below)

Many thanks, Smadell, My email notification got hidden in the melee and I have only just found your answer. The place command did exactly what I needed in seconds. One very happy customer :)

I'm so glad you found the post. I had to play around with AP until I figured out just what would make it work. I know I've used it before, but I couldn't (at first) remember how! So thank you for jogging my memory!

This feature would be so much more useful if the "Replace image" button worked with many images at the same time.

How often would you want to replace several different images with the same one?
