Cloning/Healing An Image With Transparency (Affinity Photo)

Recommended Posts

What's the best way to clone/heal on an image that isn't fully opaque?  For example, if I wanted to remove the splat from the attached file.


I can use the Inpainting Brush tool as it preserves transparency, however depending on the image the inpainting tool doesn't always work, so I'm looking for a way to manually choose the clone source (for example with the Clone Brush tool, the Healing Brush tool or the Patch tool).  However, those tools multiply the transparency making the cloned area darker.

Hi Sima,


I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, however open your image and duplicate the layer and uncheck the original. Now use the eraser tool to remove the spot, then switch to the Inpainting tool and paint over the area that you removed with the eraser.
