Inpainting Not Working

Recommended Posts

As a new Affinity Photo iPad Pro user, I am not able to get the Inpainting Brush to highlight the area of an imported photo that I want to remove. The Clone icon gives me access to the Inpainting Brush and the context options appear at the bottom of the screen, but when I touch the area of the photo that I want to edit, nothing happens—no highlighting.  I’ve used my finger as well as a stylus. I’m sure this is some newbie error, but I’m stumped.  Thank you in advance for your help.

Well, as fate dictates, I discovered the answer after posting my plea for help.  I needed to create a pixel layer and set the context for the Inpainting Brush to “Curren layer and below”. Once I’d edited the photo and merged the two layers, I finished my adjustments. The telephone poles and wires are gone and the photo is ready to present.

@Sahlsmith When you import a photo (Place) image into AF it is placed as an image. The easiest method is to open Layer studio, select the image layer, tap the Layer Option menu (little circle with 3 dots) and select Rasterize. Your layer will be converted to pixel and can be modified directly.
