I usually download the image and open the downloaded image in affinity photos then copy the pixel layer paste it into my working project as a pixel layer.

Is there any simpler way to just copy an image from webpage paste it into my working project as a pixel layer?

Since Rasterize appears on the Layer menu, you can assign a custom keyboard shortcut to it if you want. IIRC, there is already a default one set (Return or Enter?) but I use the = key for that because I am less likely to tap it by mistake.

Good Day

 

I was wondering if you could help me

I have tried almost all ways to copy and paste on affinity photo and its copying in a way but when I paste the picture I copied for some reason it zooms in to the photo and I don't get the full photo I want?

and I have also tried changing it to pixels with the advice given but its still not working

im very confused

Hi julia_mysterywhite,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
The image you are pasting in probably bigger than the canvas size so you are only seeing part of it. Change to the Move Tool, select the image clicking on it on canvas then zoom out as needed until you see the whole bounding box (the blue line with the handles). Click and drag one of the corner handles to scale it down as needed then drag it to the canvas area.
