This has been an issue for a while now. The blur brush tool adjustments in the tool bar (opacity, hardness and flow) don't seem to be doing anything. I've been using affinity photo now for about 7 months now. This never used to be an issue - the opacity, hardness and flow sliders would all have an effect on the blur brush tool. However all of the sudden, one day they stopped working and the blur brush tool is stuck on max blur! Can anybody tell me why or how to fix this? Note: these adjustments work just fine on paint brushes, burn/dodge brush tools etc its only an issue with the blur tool.

Hi Harry34186,


Welcome to the forums :)


This is certainly an odd issue!


Please could you try going into the app preferences > Miscellaneous and then click Reset Brushes to see if that solves your issue?



Please tag me using @ in your reply so I can be sure to respond ASAP.

I tried that and it has partially fixed the problem, thank you! The flow and hardness adjustments now appear to work, so for the time being I can make do! However the opacity adjustment still does nothing. (Again this is just an issue with the blur brush tool) Any ideas?

I am new to IP.  I use the Windows desktop version.  Today I needed a lower percentage opacity of the  blur brush tool, but for me also it is stuck in max opacity.  I did also reset my app preferences to no avail.  I did not see this as a current fix in the Windows beta version .
