Affinity Photo help: Magic Wand, Invert, Crop?

Recommended Posts

In Photoshop, I repeatedly use the following procedure many times a week, sometimes many times a day.

  1. With magic wand, select background. Repeat with pockets of background as necessary.
  2. Clear, erasing the background.
  3. Invert the selection. (Hug the image)
  4. Crop.

How can I replicate this with Affinity Photo?

Thank you.

Hi UnicornTapestry :)

This is possible in Affinity Photo, with the last step being the only difference. Unfortunately there isn't currently a 'cop to selection' option however the below forum post should provide you with a workaround for this!

It's a terrible idea until you need it. Please don't misjudge me. I work in a production environment where I need to rapidly crop dozens, sometimes hundreds of photos for on-line catalogues, an environment where minimal bytes count.

I'd love to migrate to Affinity Photo, but until I find a way to select and crop per above, I'm stuck. Thanks for understanding.
