Adding and Subtracting Layer Transparency from Selection (aka Ctrl Clicking a Layer with a keyboard modifier)

Recommended Posts

Hey,

So in Photoshop you can Ctrl click a layer and use either Alt, Shift, and Alt+Shift (on Windows) to allow the subtracting, adding or selecting the intersection of the current selection. This is really handy for creating masks and composite shapes. I know in Affinity Photo that you can Ctrl click a layer to select the opaque area, but using the keyboard modifiers doesn't seem to do anything else.

Is there another way to do what I do in Photoshop in Affinity Photo?


Cheers,
Mark
