Crop images in publisher

Recommended Posts

Hi jnskrft,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
There's a non-destructive object based crop Tool you can use to hide the parts you don't what. Just select the image and the Crop Tool and drag the handles to hide the parts you don't want visible (this will add a vector mask to the image - expand the image layer in the Layers panel to see the nested mask). If you still want to get ride of the hidden parts, right-click the image layer (not the mask layer) and select Rasterise.

Is there any way to crop to an irregular shape, and blur the crop edges?


Create the shape you want to crop to, then drag its layer in the layers palette over the thumbnail of the layer you want to use it to crop.  A highlight line should show up to the right of the thumbnail of the layer you are cropping while you are holding the mouse over it.  This will turn the shape you are dragging the layer entry of into a mask.

With the layer being masked expanded to show the mask layer, select the mask layer and add an appropriate gradient to it using the fill tool.  Reduce the opacity of some point on the gradient to reduce the opacity of the edges of the final result.
