“Marching ants” deselection on iPad

Recommended Posts

Hello all...

 

I am trying out the iPad version of Photo and really loving it. I have all the photoshop shortcuts down from years of use and spending some time figuring out the transitions needed.

 

Prblem I am having is in two ares...

 

1 - When I make a selection in the selection persona and make my adjustments in the photo persona I can’t find the way to then deselect the marching ants! Why is there not (unless I am just missing it) a “deselect” or “hide” command?

 

2 - Why can’t I just paint a mask to do my adjustments with? One would think having a paintbrush to quickly paint over an area to do burn/dodge or the like would be a no brainer. THis is the only reason I use photoshop fix, it is soooooo simple to make these adjustments. Again, I may just be missing it so please help me out. 

 

Thanks!

Bruce

Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, Bruce. :)

 

1 -  As far as I'm aware, you can only deselect while in the Selection Persona. The option is on the 'three dots' menu.

 

2 - When you add an adjustment layer, a mask is automatically added at the same time. Choose the Paint Brush Tool and paint in black, white or grey, just as you would normally do.

Bruce, when you are on the layer with the marching ants do a two finger tap and deselect is one of the choices that appears.

 

Thanks for the tip. (BTW, I don't think the marching ants are ever tied to a particular layer.)

Thank You all for the advice! Found it and started using it.
