How to remove and change a background with Affinity Designer

Posted on 11th April 2017
1-  Open Affinity Designer.


 

2-  Open the first picture you would like to change the background of.


 

3- Go the layers palette, copy and paste your image.


 

4- Delete the original image.


 

5- Using the pan tool draw around the part of the image you would like to keep.


 

6- In the layers panel drag the background image into the curves layer.


 

7-  Change the stroke to no colour.


 

8- Next go to File > open.


 

9- Select the file you would like for your background. Right click on it and copy.


 

10- Right click on the image and paste the background image.


 

11- Go to the layers palette and drag the background image you added below the curves, so it is behind you original image.


 

12- Select both the curves and background image and select the Fx option. A new box will appear.


13- Finally, you can adjust the blur and other effects to create different looks. I used a glow effect to place a haze around my image.
