Straighten, crop, increase canvas

Recommended Posts

I just joined Affinity and am on my first photo project.  I want to straighten a photo and then add a border around it (increase canvas size).  I straighten just fine with the tool and love it but when I try to increase the canvas it does it at the angle of the original photo.  If I increase the canvas first and then straighten, it only straightens the photo but not the entire document so it's at an angle again.  How do I do this?  Thanks

Welcome to the forums.

Are you using the Crop Tool in the Develop persona or the Photo persona as the Develop Crop Tool is destructive. If you take a screenshot after apply the Crop so I can see. Also when resizing the Canvas check to make sure the center anchor is selected.
