Select similar colours

Recommended Posts


in Photoshop there is a function, in german called "ähnliches auswählen". In english it's called "Similar" in selection-menu. The function automatically  select a similar color. So for example if I select a area with red color and I run "Similar", photoshop selects all areas with a similar red color.

How can I do that with affinity photo? Is there a similar function?

Thanks for any hints,

Hi chapolote,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

No, currently there's no similar function in Affinity Photo. If you are selecting the colour on a single layer you can try to use the Flood Select Tool, set the Tolerance as you see fit to pick just the colour you want, untick the Contiguous checkbox and It should select the same colour from the whole layer.
