I have paid for the full upgrade but cannot see how to open the image editing tools as mentioned in MacFormat issue 293 (November 2015).
I need to access these tools to make full use of the app because I need to remove the enclosed backgrounds of some lettering that I want to use in my icons. Can you please tell me how I might access the instant alpha wand? I have tied using the suggested command of command, shift, A but this isn't working for me.
I have an iMac running El Capitan.
Thank you for your time.

    Thank you for the prompt response to my query. I’ll try what you have suggested.
    The article in MacFormat does not mention this so I apologise for my assumption that it did.

    No need to apologize, I'm actually tempted to add instant alpha as feature :)
