Join Steve Caplin for an in-depth discussion in this video Copying and pasting, part of Affinity Photo Essential Training.
- Here's a rather bland image of an office. Let's see if we can bring this to life by adding a few more elements to it. First of all, I want to add a computer. I'll go to the file menu and choose open. And here's a computer that I cut out earlier. It's a .psd a Photoshop document and all that means is that it's a file with a background removed. Affinity Photo can open Photoshop documents along with a whole range of other file formats.
And here's the computer, you can see this dialog saying that, Affinity Photo is going to assign a working profile to this. All that means is that it's setting the colors of this document to match the default colors in Affinity Photo. To get this computer from this file into our montage file it's very straightforward. We go to the edit menu and copy it. Note that unlike in Photoshop, theirs no need to make a selection first.
Then we can go into the montage file by clicking on it's tab. And we can just choose paste and here it comes. I recommend giving your layers a name when they come in. So let's double click it here and call it computer. And hit enter to apply that. Simply because when we're working with a lot of layers it's very useful to see what they're all called.
Now, that we've copied our image from this file into our working file we might as well save as we go along. Just to make sure we've always got something we can revert to if there are problems. Next, we'll go on to see how we can transform this and put it where we want it.
