Impossible to cut a part of a picture !


Recommended Posts

Check the Layers Studio. The picture must be on a Pixel layer: if it’s on an Image layer it will be treated as a single object instead of a collection of pixels, so cutting it will cut the entire picture.

In the layer studio menu there is the option to Rasterize. This converts the image into a pixel layer.

Another thing : how can I make the background transparent, see-through

If you have selected and inverted the selection to 'capture' the background pixels, switch back to photo edit persona, long press on the screen and tap Delete. The background will be removed. Depending on whether you have white or transparent set for canvas it will appear white or transparent as background (assuming no underlying layers.

If you want to do it non destructively, select your main image, invert and refine Selection, and use the context menu, tap little triangle on right of menu, then select from dropdown menu Output 'New layer with mask'. This create a new layer consisting only of your selected image. Having a mask attached means you can paint on the mask using black to conceal and white to reveal any part of the new image. Non destructive.
