Help with removing backgrounds

Recommended Posts

Hi there.  I'm a complete novice to Affinity Photo and Affinity Design so please bear with me!

I'm trying to remove the 'Paper' background to an ink drawing I have done. I want the design to be recreated for a screen print on a t-shirt but I cannot get 'just' the design.  Any help would be gratefully received!  Thank you.

It didn't seem to work!  What am I doing wrong?  I've tried the Flood Select tool also to remove the image like it was cut out, but thats a bit hit and miss.  The programme seems to sometimes work and not other times.  Frustrating.

Beatiful drawing, by the way! thumbup1.gif

My flood selection tool and background removal tool are not working at all?  Of course it happens when I have a project - any help would be really appreciated. Thanks!!

Do you have the correct layer selected in the Layers panel? Check whether it shows as a ‘Pixel’ layer or an ‘Image’ layer. If the latter, right-click the layer in the Layers panel and choose ‘Rasterize’ from the context menu.
