I am missing the transparency tool on the tool bar and it does not appear in the "Customize Tools" list as an option to add.  Any suggestions please.

Hi Zoomer and Welcome to the Forums,

Which app are you using?  The transparency tool is only in Designer

Hi @Zoomer

The Transparency Tool

tr.jpg.4bd687a8dbb06ab3b8a35e6d50cfea89.jpg

Is an Affinity Designer feature, it is not in Affinity Photo. 

Are you perhaps using Affinity Photo ?


Windows PCs. Photo and Designer, latest non-beta versions.

This is exactly where I went wrong.  I am transitioning from many years with PhotoShop and thoroughly enjoying the fresh approach presented in Affinity Photo, but it is obvious I have much to learn.  Please advise what technique / tool I should be using to create a uniform layer transparency in Affinity Photo.
Thank you.

You can set the opacity/transparency of a layer uniformly in the Layers panel:
