Can't use Magic Wand on Images from Clip Board - Affinity Photo

Recommended Posts

Hi. I replaced Photoshop with Affinity Photo. I ran into something strange. If I copy and image online to the clipboard and create a new document from the clipboard...if I try and use the magic wand tool on the image, it doesn't do anything. Am I doing something wrong? Or is this a bug?


Thank you,

This way it's an image layer (image), just perform a rasterize command on the image layer (right click then rasterize in the layer panel) in order to make it a pixel layer (pixel). Afterwards the magic wand tool should usually work, if you convert the image layer to a pixel layer. Alternatively you can also use the Layer -> Rasterize menu command therefor, it does the same.
