In photoshop I can modify channels directly. For example, I duplicate a channel then modify it with curve, level or even the brush. Then I load the modified channel as selection.
 
In Affinity Photo, how do I modify channels freely as I do in photoshop and load it as selection?

Hello seabirdr.

 

Currently there is no easy way to do what you ask... (At least that I know off)

 

All three videos are interesting but it's not what he asked....

 

 

It would be great if we could do exactly what seabirdrs ask.  Maybe in a future (not so distant?) update.

 

I think this is the only thing missing from Photoshop that I may miss. Luckily it's not a deal breaker for me right now.

 

 

 

In photoshop I can modify channels directly. For example, I duplicate a channel then modify it with curve, level or even the brush. Then I load the modified channel as selection.

If you want to view the above video's about 'Channels' full screen, you can see them all by clicking HERE.  

 

I think the video you're looking for is this one:

Thank you very much for the link Sima.

 

It is very helpful. This video is the closest to what we want.

 

Still a couple of extra steps compared to Photohop's way of creating complex selections using an Alpha Channel as a starting point. Not perfect but I guess this is what we have for now in Affinity Photo, and the final result is the same ( just tried a couple of exercises).

 

Hopefully in a future version we can directly paint and manipulate channels as if they were grey scale images. Much more versatile.
