  1. Humm, well that was interesting… I”ve uninstalled Avast and it’s not made any improvement in times. Choosing the AP Retouch extension, it still takes 1m:5s for the window to show up. And also interestingly, none of the retouch options can be selected for a further 40 seconds. During this time the clock also remains frozen nor can I interact with any other part of my computer. Which makes a total of 1m:45s before being able to do anything. Attached is another Console log from a run without Avast installed, if it may or may not be of any help to you.

  2. Hopefully this is the right set of logs for you Gabe. It’s from the first listing under Devices > “users name” Macbook Pro.
  3. Here you go and thanks for taking a look 🙂 Note the clock time top right when launching an extention, it freezes and my entire system also becomes un responsive while the extention loads. Extension Launch Time.mp4
  4. Not sure there’s much difference, perhaps a few seconds faster in the new MAS version. The opening times for each extension though remain consistent for me. They are; Develop: For RAW files; 0m:58s & for jpeg = 1m:5s Haze Removal: 1m:5s Liquefy: 1m:15s Monochrome: 1m:15s Miniature: 1m:25s Retouch: 1m:5s (In the beta GM this was 1m:25s) I should say that the ‘Edit In Affinity Photo’ extension works “correctly” and is as fast as it ever was in the past, at just 9 seconds, which includes launching AP from cold!
  5. On Macs you have two built-in apps you can use to import images to the computer from SD cards. (While some Macs have SD card readers built-in, others will require a separate USB card reader). Apple Photos, which can be used for importing, organising, editing and storing images. And Image Capture, if you just want to import images to specific locations on you drive outside of Apple Photos. Images can also be “shared” to your Mac wirelessly from other Apple devices too, using AriDrop.
  6. In the first screenshot it is just letting see that the layer "Fix" has an adjustment or filter inside it. Expanding the layer, as in your second screenshot, allows you access to the added item/s. Items added within a layer like this will typically only affect the layer they are within.
  7. It’s now consistently taking about 1 minute 25sec for the extensions to launch from Apple Photos. This is significantly slower than previously when it only took around 10 so seconds before. Using ordinary .jpeg files of around 4.5 MB System specs in my signature.
  8. Hello Mihcael and welcome to the Affinity forums🙂 Not sure if there is a minimum number of post you need to make before you can attach images here, but If you can post some screenshots or the image itself, it will be much easier for people to suggest what option you maybe have for removing the shadows.
  9. Always get a little quickening of the pulse when I see you have more images to share Patrick. And once again you have added back a little more beauty to the world.
  10. Not quite sure what exactly you mean? Perhaps a little more detail or a screen recording of what’s happening to you might help? I have found that the entire UI can be moved while clicking on any icons in the top Toolbar, which should be impossible and is in any other Mac app, which has been driving me crazy for since the end of last year in all current versions of the Affinity apps!
  11. As you have a viable workaround, then at least you can use that for now, which is good. The important thing is that the actual pixel count of your file isn’t changing so you are not loosing any quality. Apps use the ppi to assume what the finished physical size should be. But it is just attached metadata and can usually be overruled. Out of curiosity, was the original AD file created at 300ppi? If so then the question is why dose the .svg exported from AD now import back into AD at 72ppi and at 96ppi in Inkscape? I think this is possibly to do with the ppi metadata in the exported .svg file from AD not subsequently being read correctly in other apps. I’m sure I read another post around here some place of others experiencing a similar thing?… Sadly I can’t find it now!
  12. At what ppi/dpi are you viewing it at in other apps? Opening your test file in Affinity Designer, it is 6750 x 1800 pixels @72ppi, which gives a potentially printed image of 93.75” x 25”. Changing the ppi to 300 gives your expected size of 22.5” x 5.5”.
  13. And Isabel Aracama made this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zO4QoNltzBY
  14. If exporting from the Draw Persona, ‘Design Persona’ or ‘Pixel Persona’, then using the ‘Export selection without background’ setting found in the ‘Area’ options may be of use. This option will then only export those items currently selected/highlighted in the layers panel.
