Greetings!

 

I had to do a bit of study and homework in order to wrap my head around the clipping and masking operations in Designer and Photo.  In the process, I developed a one-page infographic (attached), and it apparently has already helped some folks on the Affinity Designer and Photo Group in FaceBook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/AffinityDesignerPhotoPublisher/.

 

I will be updating it shortly, but wanted share the first version here for comments and suggestions.

 

Enjoy!

Gah! I'm not a Facebook'er so I tried to click on the PDF you attached but it says it's 'not available for my account' which is super-annoying! Any chance you'd just attach a PNG here so people can view it more easily? Thank you! :)

Very informative and professional!

 

Both have great advantages. I use clipping for cases like an eye on the edge of face, and I use masking for comic panels or to give the impression of an unclosed shape on shapes that are actually closed.


The website is still a work in progress. The "Comics" and "Shop" sections are not yet ready. Feel free to connect with me and let me know what you like or what can be improved. You can contact me here, on my contact page, YouTube channel, or Twitter account. Thanks and have a great day!
