It’s pretty straightforward in the Affinity apps, too. Cover the image with a semitransparent shape such as a rectangle or a polygon, convert the shape to curves, use the Node Tool to edit it and then go to the Layers panel. Set the layer opacity back to 100%, drag the shape layer and drop it on the thumbnail of the image.

thanks for your feedback - i tried that and it didnt seen to work. Not sure what i was doing wrong. I found that there is a 'paste inside' option, which is a workaround. still not as good as having an irregular crop tool though.

Without knowing what happened and at which step in the procedure, I’m not sure either!

The ‘Paste Inside’ option gives you a clipping/nesting result (where the ‘clipview’ object remains visible) instead of a cropping/masking result (where the cropping object becomes invisible).
