  1. I'm a little confused about the way live filters work now. From what I can see when in the filters studio I can check the add live filters button and it will only show me filters that are available as live filters. This is great and really useful but..... Previously we could add a filter make some adjustments and then decide if we want it to be a live filter by pressing a button to convert it. Quite often I find I don't really know until I've made the initial adjustments if I would like to use a live filter or not. I can't see a way of converting to a live filter once I've picked my filter, am I just missing something obvious or is this just an adjustment to my workflow I need to start making.

    [] Inpainting issue

    I've had this too, a lot. It seems to happen when there is a layer mask in use. If I zoom in and out of the image the missing area moves around, sometime the whole image is not visible.

    [] Weird touch related bug.

    Heres a couple more images to demo the random line effect. All I did was tap the screen to remove a small area of the background in refine selection .
  4. Not 100% sure if this is an issue with photo or my iPad. I only see the issue in photo though and have no other touch related issues in other apps or iOS I find that when using Apple Pencil (maybe with fingers too, never tried) the touch point on screen seems to lock in a random area so when I place the pencil on the screen I will end up with a random line. This seems to happen more when I'm making a selection, refining a selection or editing a mask but it has happened in other areas too. I've noticed that when I have show touches enabled I get a random blue touch circle appear, it than just gets stuck on the screen. I'm on the latest beta but I've also seen this in the App Store version, its just happening a lot more with the current beta. 11" iPad Pro running iOS 12.3 with Apple Pencil 2 I've uploaded a couple of images that show the blue touch dot that indicates touch. I'm not touching the screen at that point its been there about 20 mins.
  5. Hey @GabrielM sorry this took so long to get back to, the last few weeks have gotten away from me a little. The file is currently uploading to dropbox, its called heyitsdiggy - test.zip I've come to the point today where I have finished editing a wedding and need to export all the images. It was a small wedding so only about 250 photos. It's taken me hours up to now to export them. If I do them in batches of 6 they seem ok, as soon as I add a 7th image it appears to be too much for the app and it crashed restarting the whole Mac, my Magic Trackpads Taptic Engine even freezes because it's no longer communicating with my Mac. Edit: Just to say the images I'm sending are a newborn session not the wedding I just mentioned, in case there's confusion. Also I've tried to turn off parallel processing, this is what enables me to batch process 6 images with it on and processing the same 6 images I never get any exported files AP just hangs eventually.
  6. Yes that’s a great idea, it’ll be later today or tonight I’m out shooting all day, I’ll do it as soon as I get in.
  7. Almost a TB, I should have mentioned, I know it’s not the Mac, I’ve performed a clean install of macOS, I’m a Mac technician, I’ve done exhaustive hardware testing, it’s 100% affinity photo and the fact it’s but I suspect it’s more of an issue with compatibility, admittedly I only have 8GB of RAM which is what I’ve always put it down to, but I’ve found I can’t even process 5 images without it kernel panicking. Im curious to know the number of files and the types of batch processing others perform.
  8. Hi all, I’m just curious more than anything, ive always had an issue with batch processing. All I use it for is to take my AFPhoto files and batch convert them to JPEGS. I find that no matter the size of the job my iMac crashes. Even if it’s five images my Mac full on freezes and eventually shuts down and restarts. I don’t get a kernel panic in the logs but it’s clearly what’s happening. Does anyone else find this happens or have any other ideas so that I can convert with out having to do them one by one.
  9. Hi, I’d be willing to try and help you out if you like, I suspect like others have pointed out it’s not likely that Affinity Photo is the cause but that doesn’t change the fact you have some missing photos. I cant promise I can get them back but I’ll certainly try and work out what happened. Feel free to send me a private message if you like.

    What does this icon indicate?

    Haha of course it is, thanks :)
  11. I see this button on a few filters but I just can't work out that it means. Is the a guide available that goes through all of the little icons within tools/filters/adjustments?

    iPad/Mac Workflow

    I just finished reading that thread and thought well, there’s no need for my thread now, came here to update and post a link, you beat me to it haha, glad to see I’m not missing something obvious, it’s funny how once you know there is only a certain way to achieve what you want it makes the whole thing more bearable.
  13. Hi all, Now we have Photo for iPad which I'm sure will only get better and better, I though I would start a topic around workflows. It the minute I'm left scratching my head and I suspect I may just now be getting it fully. I've used photo on Mac since day one and have now got the point where it my only editing program. I'm a newborn and family photographer and especially in a newborn shoot I can have quite a lot of photo's to edit. Being able to do them on the move is going to change everything for me. That said I'm really struggling to to work out how the sync my edits between files. If I open on of my afphoto files on my iPad from iCloud Drive make some changes and then save it, it does not seem to change the file on my Mac (I'm saving by going to the document menu > Defaults > Save or by pressing the return to home arrow). The changes save on the home screen of the app but never save to the file thats in iCloud Drive. At first this made sense because I'm editing the local copy on the iPad. I thought I would be able to commit these changes to the iCloud file but it seems I can only make another copy which does the trick but having to do this everytime I want to switch between iPad/Mac is becoming a pain and I'm finding for this reason I just stick to Mac. It's equally frustrating the other was because if I make changes on Mac I have to then delete the file on iPad and reimport the afphoto file. Am I missing something here or is this the way it works at the moment.

    Hi all, thought I'd share a few Christmas photos I took and then edited with Affinity Photo
