No go with the inpainting facility in Affinity Photo - advice please


Recommended Posts

Hello.

 

I am brand new to Affinity Photo and despite being used to the principle of layers cannot find a way to make the 'inpainting' tool active on my pixel image. The blemish tool is active but if I try to use the Inpaint brush it is not doing anything on the layer.  I think my workflow - or understanding of how it works is at fault here.  I did try to do as the instructing videos say but have no joy so far.  I use Windows 8.1 and  a desktop PC.

Are you sure you are painting on a Pixel layer?

 

The inpainting tool will not work on an Image layer "inset" or an Adjustment layer.

Above, the Pixel layer is selected. If selected, it will be highlighted in blue. 

 

Make sure the brush settings are 100%, or thereabouts.

Then just paint.
