@Poziomka It's impossible to include a clipping path inside a jpg or a tiff. They cannot contain any vector data.

That's not correct, i have used clipping paths in tiff an jpg.

It could be some software is 'abusing' meta-data of the jpeg to store things like this, but it's definitely nothing the jpeg format itself is capable of or designed for. Nor is the metadata. Jpeg can only store one layer of pixels so it would be a very odd choice to use for things like this if even possible. That's why formats like PSD exist in the first place.

I even made a jpg with a clipping path in af photo, and used the clipping path in quark xpress

HI

Is it possible to activate the Photoshop clipping path (embeded in tiff, psd, jpg) in affinity photo, designer or publisher?

Affinity apps support clip paths in JPEG when opening or exporting a JPEG (see option in the exporter's More controls), but not when placing a JPEG in an already open document. That lack when placing is a strange design decision by Affinity developers.

Also, counter-intuitively, when a JPEG with clip path is opened, the path is a vector mask instead of a clipping vector. Similarly, if you want to export a JPEG with clip path then the path must be a vector mask rather than a clipping vector.

OK it works with JPEG when it is opened in AP. I didn't try JPD my fault, sorry.

However in TIFFs and PSDs it doesn't work and images placed with clipping path to Affinity need to be clipped (extra work if You didn't check the file).

My suggestion is to add this feature to all Affinity app and files (TIF, PSD) as well.
