Need way to have three images as three columns

Recommended Posts

I am thinking of creating a sort of collage of images in an Affinity document. I need three columns with separation lines. I want to ensure that I can use a standard Affinity template and just place three images in the appropriate place and move them around so that they look good together. I want the image to be visible in one column only. I used rectangles and created mask layers under them. However, this does not seem to be fool proof and I run into issues with the center column invariably. Also, I lose the column border. I have attached the afphoto file. Can you suggest a better method to do this?

As far as I can see you have over complicated the setup. All that you really require are three rectangles that you can nest the images into. I'm not getting the mask, it doesn't appear to do anything?

I Removed the masks, ungrouped the rectangles and placed images as a child layer to each rectangle and it works fine as far as I can see.
