Hello all,

In Photoshop it is quite easy to do a "pixel-stretch" effect on a bitmap layer (such as a photo) by selecting a row or column of single pixels then scaling it (see picture below). When I try to do this in Affinity Designer (in Pixel mode), the pixel row/column is resized and smoothed out, becoming a gradient. How can I avoid this and get the same effect as in Photoshop?

Use the Row Marquee Tool to select a single row of pixels
Copy to a new layer
Then use the Power Duplicate function to duplicate the row of pixels whilst moving the layer down 1 pixel each time


Due to the ongoing Brexit negotiations, punctuation, spelling and grammar will be used sparingly until further notice.

I tried to do stretching in AD and it seems AD uses some kind of feather in the border. Why it does that, as it is unexpected behaviour? It should stretch just like in PS?

Agree with @Fixx above. This is easy in PS. But a year later AD still creates what looks like a transparent gradient when you do the Pixel Stretch effect. Why does AD add a feather/gradient effect when using the Move tool on a Column/Row Marquee Selection?
