    1.6.6 Constant Crashes

    So, seven months down the line; just bought a new iMac and tried Affinity Photo again ... Yep, sloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow, What a waste of fifty quid. So glad others can wait for ever to get work done ... Oh, and thanks once again for the prompt reply. No, wait you’ve got your money, so why bother, eh?
  2. Hi MEB, This was happening to any file I was trying. I've reset the app as per instructions and it has made it more responsive. I'll keep using it a while to get used to the new method of working. Muito obrigado.
  3. Hi Paul. I'd given up on this program so hadn't returned to the forum. I appreciate your effort in answering but I was piggybacking on the OP's initial query, hence my initial "no crashes as such ...". I even tried uninstalling it altogether but tried using it again yesterday and see it's still extremely slow at doing anything at all. Oh well, I suppose I'm another fool for parting with my money hoping to find an alternative to Photoshop, which incidentally does work at comfortable speed on the same computer. The people at Serif are obviously happy at what they're selling so not bothering much with those who can't do anything with it. Ho hum ...
  4. Ah, well. let's try here shall we? Posted 5 November: No crashes as such but having upgraded to 1.6 means useless program now. Tried Lens Blur on one of three Layers and after ten minutes watching the progress bar come up again and again I gave up and hit the Esc key. No use at all. Couldn't close the program down either. Shut down my MBP altogether. Gave it another chance, this time on just one layer. Same waste of time. Thank you Affinity, back to Photoshop and not happy at having wasted my money either. Five days later ... I'll chip in with Earlio and also say "A reply would be nice". (Now 18 days, thank you Affinity ...)

  6. Hmm, time to cough up then ... If you do decide to go ahead and go with Affinity, as many of us have, Chris P Williams runs you through the installation perfectly here:
  7. On a high speed train at the moment, with poor Wifi signal so I can't see your file. The classic suggestion would be copying the image onto another layer, make it black and white and increase the contrast. Then select blacks i.e. the trees and work from there.
  8. Away from my computer for a while but with regard to the " secret ninja apps", in case you didn't know already you can install the now free Google Nik Collection under Filters in Affinity Photo too.
  9. I'd recommend starting with an HSL layer and going on from there. OT - Am I right in saying you're a Sopranos fan :-)
  10. Select Sampled Colour. Adjustments: Channel Mixer.
