Transparency Shapes Layer in AP

Recommended Posts

I have been looking at a PS tutorial and the author double-clicked on a layer that in-turn brought up a layer style drop-down window.  He then said that in order tp make his tutorial work, I would have to deselect "Transparency Shapes Layer".  How does this instruction translate into AP?

See attached screen shot.

The ‘Transparency Shapes Layer’ option in PS restricts layer effects to opaque (i.e. non-transparent) regions of the layer. The corresponding option in Affinity Photo is ‘Protect Alpha’.
