What does "Export Selection with / without background" mean?

Recommended Posts

I am struggling to understand this feature and am hoping that someone can better explain it to me please.

I understand the selection portion but do not understand the with and without background means. Especially when exporting as a .jpg that cannot have a transparent background.

Any light shed is greatly appreciated!

Hi hburkes88,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
With an object/layer selected, Export selection with background will also include whatever may be behind that layer/object (like other layers/objects below in the layer stack that may be visible in some areas). Without background, it exports just the selected object/layer with a transparent background ignoring anything behind/below it.

Ahh, thank you very much. So for instance, if I had a rectangle with a stroke but no fill over the top of an image and just selected the rectangle the exporting WITH the background would show the image inside of the rectangle and WITHOUT would leave it empty?

BTW, good grief you guys have amazing CS! Not only is it amazingly fast and super consistent for a software company but businesses across all industries could learn a thing or two from your team. Thanks a bunch!
