Creating a mirrored edge

Recommended Posts

I am fairly new to Affinity so struggling a bit here, all I want to do is add mirrored edges along all four sides of a photo for printing on to canvas preferably with a blur so that the image wraps around the frame seamlessly, I am sure there is a way but I struggling with this, all the ways I have tried have been successful to a point but I am sure there must be a simpler way. Can anybody help?

You need the Affine (not Affinity) filter Filters > Distort > Affine. This re-arranges the four quadrants so the the sides become the middle. You can then blur the edges, now at the centre, or do some cloning or inpainting work to obscure the seam. For a different approach, see my tutorial here.


Windows 10, Affinity Photo 1.7 and Designer 1.7, (mainly Photo), now ex-Adobe CC
