Using Clone Brush Tool between different Affinity Photo docs

Recommended Posts

In Affinity Photo (AP) I have not yet discovered how to copy pixels from one doc to another. I have done my repair on one AP doc and want to use the Clone Brush to transfer my area corrections to a different doc of the exact same proportions. I can of course do this in Photoshop and may have to revert to this method, but I would like to know if I'm missing something. Within the same doc it works well but not to another doc. Thanks.

The Sources panel is used for this. It is described in the AP help (in the Workspace > Panels section) but it is probably more easily understand by watching the Affinity Photo - Clone Sources video tutorial.

Great - how can this be done in the iPad version?

That might be a better question for the iPad Questions forum :)
