Size of Selection Tool cursor

Recommended Posts

Am unable to increase/decrease the size of the selection tool. I use a Windows 10 (pro) pc and haveAffinity Photo. 

I am just starting to try to use this product and found a few YouTube tutorials that seemed to justify my adding it to my LightRoom being on my PC.

But when I try to use the mouse's scroll wheel to vary the size of the 'circle', the only effect that has is to enlarge/decrease the size of the image i'm working on.

Am I not understanding how this works?

I saw a reference to a 'flood tool' on a YouTube video. I don't see the icon on my menus. Do I not have the same version (I have 1.6.5.123)?

You can adjust the brush size in several way.

1. As @firstdefence suggests, using the mouse wheel.

2. Use the [  ] keys on the keyboard.

3 Press and hold down the Alt key, then press down both mouse buttons and drag left or right.

There is a Flood Select Tool (aka Magic Wand) immediately below the Selection Brush Tool

Many thanks to both correspondents!!! 

And I'm going to want to check out the trove of tutorials:  Official Affinity Photo (Desktop) Video Tutorials (200+)

I have been using LightRoom on my desktop. I decided to add it to my desktop owing to the existence of this select tool which is absent on LR.  While this program can do far more than i envision ever needing, it has some features that I can already wrap my mind around which appear quite useful.
