    Crash when opening PNG

    Hi. I downloaded your file, unzipped it and attempted to open it in AP (latest release version). No joy, AP crashed immediately! Only Irfanview, 64 bit, was able to open it. BUT, I see the image dimensions are given as 62993 x 45000 pixels, with 1 bit depth. From other posts I've read in the forum I suspect that the combination of image size and bit depth is what is creating the problem. However, I am NO EXPERT at all; hopefully others with much greater experience and skill will also download your file and offer their ideas! Jeff

    Can't open any file (RAW or JPEG) in Affinity Photo

    Indeed you can! Never come across this before! Many thanks @walt.farrell

    Can't open any file (RAW or JPEG) in Affinity Photo

    But don't you still have to then use the Cortana "box" to search? On my system (Win 10, 1709), pressing the Windows key merely displays the beginning of the alphabetical list of installed programs and the tiles panel.

    Can't open any file (RAW or JPEG) in Affinity Photo

    @Chris B I think your first instruction to JMEdinburgh should read: "Press Windows key +R on your keyboard"
  5. Thanks Chris. Good to know it's not a problem being created by my system!
  6. But now, having just tested this again, the adjustments window lower edge is off the screen! Interestingly though, it is not as "far off" the screen as in your screenshot; I can see ALL the graph but not the buttons below the graph. And I've just repeated the test, and 100% of the window is visible!!!!!
  7. Also 1920 x 1080 and on first use I see the same problem. But, if I "correct" the error, close the program and re-open, the adjustments window now appears correct, everything visible.

    Scanning images

    @George McKenna, first. welcome to the Affinity forums. Assuming you are referring to PhotoPlus X5 and X8, the former is 32 bit only and the latter can be either 32 bit or 64 bit or both, depending on which "version(s)" you selected to install. I suspect you are actually using the 32 bit versions of both. Jeff EDIT: beaten by walt.farrell

    My understanding of this topic is limited (to say the least) but since APhoto has no facility to connect directly to a camera (download of images is either by drag and drop from camera to computer or by using software supplied by the camera manufacturer for the purpose or, I think, using something like Lightroom) I think it is highly unlikely that "Tethering" will be possible, at least in the near future. I could of course be completely wrong in my understanding of this!

    Perspective Grid

    @Designia Thank you for the update! All grids now visible in the Assets panel. Jeff

    Perspective Grid

    Hi. Many thanks for these, very useful! Just one comment: although they can be easily added to the AD Assets panel, they are effectively invisible, i.e. they cannot be seen in the panel. Hovering the mouse over where one would expect each one to be creates a blue square (but no visible indication of which actual grid is chosen). Asset panel ("default" view): And when mouse hovers: Or am I missing something obvious? Very likely. Jeff

    Purchase & Download Questions

    Hi. Welcome to the forum. By default, apps purchased and downloaded from the Microsoft Store are installed in C:\Program Files\Windows Apps. Unless you have changed the default Windows security settings the contents of this folder are hidden; hence, you cannot "find" where AP is installed. As I understand it, any reinstall which is necessary can be done by simply selecting that option in your Microsoft Store account. Again, I understand that any update will be automatically installed once it is released by Serif to the store OTOH, I know that you cannot install MS Store apps to any version of Windows other than 10. So, for your laptops running Win 7 I'm afraid your only option is to purchase the app direct from the Serif store and yes, that does mean you will have to buy it! Jeff

    Raw Format issue in Designer & Photo

    Hi. I opened your file in Raw Therapee 5.3 (obviously I need to update!) and saw the same edge distortion as your screenshot showed. Screenshot below: Edit: Updated to Raw Therapee 5.4 and indeed the distortion is gone!
