We are pleased to announce an update for the Windows release of Affinity Photo, version 1.10.0

The changes in Affinity Photo for Windows 1.10.0 (made since the last release Affinity Photo for Windows 1.9.2) are as follows:

Fixes & Improvements:

  • Improved GPU rendering
  • Improved Serif Labs RAW engine
  • Improved IME text editing for Japanese and Simplified Chinese languages
  • Improved Lens Correction for Canon, Tamron and Sigma lenses
  • Improved PDF import/export
  • Astrophotography
    • Edit stacked image names for better organisation
    • Stack images for different filters simultaneously using file groups (auto-alignment avoids resampling)
    • Open FITS files directly in Photo Persona (control over demosaicing)
    • Support for FUJIFILM X-Trans sensor images
  • Improved performance with:
    • Panorama stitching
    • Multiple placed Info page samplers
    • Adjustment layers when hardware acceleration is disabled
    • Heavily layered documents (faster rendering during panning and text reflow)
    • Placed images
    • Embedded documents
    • Low-memory situations (including Windows OpenCL preventing fall-back from hardware to software)
    • Converting documents between ICC profiles / pixel formats
    • Documents which contain flattened, opaque layers (usually the result of merge visible)
  • Raw CR3 support (for Canon EOS 850D)
  • Median Blur mode for Frequency Separation filter
  • Added hardware acceleration to Gradient Map adjustment
  • Added support for most emoji  
  • Added ability to Load ACM lens profiles
  • Added additional file drag drop options when holding Alt key
  • Fixed crop tool issue where all presets were landscape
  • Resource Manager:
    • New Relink option for missing resources
    • New File Type column
    • EPS files can be linked
  • Various stability improvements and assorted other fixes.
  • Help and localisation improvement.

 

UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (Free for existing customers)

The software version can be seen on the splash screen and the About dialog (in Help > About Affinity Photo).

If you’ve purchased from the Affinity Store— each time you start the Affinity Store software it will check for updates and offer any available update. The latest update will install over the top of any earlier version, with no need to uninstall. You can download the latest installer by logging into the affinity store here and find the order in your account and use the "Download" button in there. Alternatively, this new release (and previous versions of Affinity Photo for Windows) can be downloaded from this link. (that installer is NOT for Windows Store purchases and needs a product key).

If you’ve purchased from the Microsoft Store— Microsoft Store updates are done automatically by the operating system (each time you start the application). If this does not happen for you, open the Windows Store app and click the three dots in the top right corner of the app and then go to Downloads and Updates. Click Get Updates. This should hopefully force the update to show.

Is the performance improvement only with GPU Hardware acceleration? Or with the CPU as well?

With CPU you should still benefit from many of the memory management improvements

I didn't see that in any of the Release Notes for the 1.9.4 or 1.10 betas on Windows, and I don't see it in the Help. It's mentioned in the Release Notes for the betas on Mac, but not explained anywhere in the forums that I could see.

How is this done?

Thank you to the Affinity team and the active users of this forum for your work and for not letting go and constantly striving to improve. Thanks also for another free update (many were convinced there would be a paid version) which is especially good at this difficult time for all of us. 
Sorry for my English.

You need to place the ACM lens profile in this location:

C:\ProgramData\Affinity\Photo\1.0\LensProfiles

Can you explain what changed with defringing?

Photo Persona or Develop Persona?

I couldn't spot any change regarding "increased maximum radius", but it seems the crash caused by negative radius, introduced in 1.9, solved in  1.10.0.1135 beta, but then reoccurred in 1.10.0.1127.

Sorry this was a Mac fix (changed from 50 to 256). You should be able to type in a value of up to 256 now, but the equivalent fix on Windows was missed, sorry
