Hi,

 

I just ended my Photoshop Creative Cloud subscription and now I'm trying to get started with Affinity Photo.

 

In Photoshop I was used to do a selection and then fill this selection using the bucket.

 

In Affinity Photo I'm trying the same (in a pixel layer) . But with no success.

 

Any hints?

 

AaaaJeeee

Hi AaaaJeeee,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

After creating the selection, change to the Flood Fill Tool (bucket), set the Tolerance in the context toolbar to 100% and click once inside the selection (don't drag otherwise you change the tolerance again). If it still doesn't work can you please attach a screenshot of the application with the Layers panel visible please so we can see what you are doing?

Here's how to attach an image/file just in case.

Is it possible to fill selection without click? In Photoshop it makes hotkey: Alt+Delete

 

Shift + F5 although you could change it if you want.

 

In the menu it is Edit > Fill 


Windows PCs. Photo and Designer, latest non-beta versions.

Well I just had a weird experience with flood fill. It went like this:

1. I drew a C-shaped arc in black with a brush.

2. I used the magic wand to select the C. The entire C was outlined and nothing but the C.

3. I grew the marquee by 1 pixel.

4. I selected the flood fill tool.

5. I clicked inside the C-shaped object, clearly within the boundaries of the marquee.

Nothing happened. It did not fill.

I was finally able to fill the marquee when I accidentally clicked centrally within the C. That is, imagine completing the C to make an O and clicking the center of the O. I clicked no where in or near the marquee, but it flood-filled the 1-pixel-grown marqueed C and nothing else when I did so.

(Using Affinity Photo 1.6.7 on MacOS 10.12.6.)

If I use Select > Outline (Alignment Outside) I can replicate what you have described

If I use Select > Grow / Shrink it works as I would expect it to work


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

Can you do a screen/video recording on your computer?

This needs to be a thing in Designer too. I am constantly using the cmd/alt-del shortcut to fill selections. I don't see any options for it, even in the pixel persona. I don't want to be constantly fiddling with the tolerance slider.
