  1. This beta fixed the LensFun issu that did not fully support the lens of Canon PowerShotG7 X Mark ll. Thank you! Everything worked smooth installing this beta on my Win10 (latest upgrade)
  2. I am aware of this, but since I like to use only one photographic software, and that is Affinity Photo, I keep on reporting this matter. Hoping for an update to LensFun (soon..!?) or a better RAW data handler.
  3. I still do not use Affinity Photo with my favourite camera, the small pocket size Canon PowerShot GX7 mark II, since the files are not fully supported in the RAW file data that AP use. There is slow loading, heavy vignetting, no lens correction on the wide angle and more problems. When I open the same file in my PSE Camera Raw, the file is treated right as you can se below. The same in DxO optics Pro and Canon DPP 4, CameraBag Photo and even Windows Photo.
  4. I like the book and I am working it trough. I like it, high quality print and binding. Good examples to work and learn by. The package was broken and the book fell out of the package when I took it out of the postbox, but the book itself was OK. So over here in the darkness in the damp and cold west coast of Sweden, there is some light in the dark, the new Affinity book! Henry
  5. I agree, I tested and confirm. By drawing slowly, the "corny" behaviour does not occur, only while making quick strokes. I tested the same in ClipStudio and SketchBook Pro. No such problems there. It's only in Affinity Photo and Designer.
  6. This is done in the new beta .96. Some improvement I guess, but far from ACR. This photo exposure is extreme and really puts the RAW converter on test. Since Affinity is in a Photoshop competition, this must be improved! The Affinity Photo file is the left one. I tuned the exposure compensation all the way up in AP and also a little shadow fill, this was the best result I got. In ACR there are a lot more steps and exactness to use when developing the file, the result is also much more vibrant and has more contrast.
  7. I read a Swedish photo mag review on Affinity Photo. The Raw development was compared to the one in Adobe Raw. In a heavily underexposed photo the shadows are greyed out if turning the exposure and shadows compensation up. I examined in Adobe Camera Raw as well as in Canon Digital Photo Pro. I took this well under exposed photo in my kitchen to get an extreme contrast. I used the same methods in all three raw editors. Just turning up the exposure compensation and shadows compensation. Adobe Camera Raw is quick easy to handle with best result, DPP not far behind. Affinity Photo's result was awful as you can see, it still can not handle my Canon file correctly (CR2 from my favourite pocket camera GX7 Mk II); resulting in heavy vignetting and no lens correction while using wide angle. Too bad. (Sometimes I really miss Photoshop.) A fix coming for these issues?
  8. Working on a scanned hand painted gouache picture A4 size 300 dpi. Using 6 layers. Two of them text layers. Nothing extreme. Was going to show my partner the design, zoomed in a bit, moved the design using the mouse and the space key when the crash came. Just like that! I had not saved for a couple of minutes. I had to redo the last changes. Not much work, but irritating ... Will ask my partner to step over to my desk later to have a look, hoping it does not crash again. Sometimes I miss Photoshop. I never had any crashes there. Too many crashes in Affinity Photo 1.6.1.93 now, to many ... random crashes ... To many ...
  9. They keep on crashing, both both Designer and Photo 1.61 (Win10). Still, I want to use them... so keep on debugging..
  10. I used Clip Studio and made the same manouver as in Affinity Photo using the same layer "Glow" blending mode and a free transform. Nothing bad happend, everyting worked out as I wanted it to do.
  11. Here is the report attachment. I made a mesh transform to a small abject in my illustration. When I selected one mesh point, the crash came. The layer I was working on was set to "Glow" and I was trying to give a shine, done with an airbrush, from a lamp a better form. I tried this once more and the crash was there again, but this time the program locked so I could not make anything with any tool. I had to use the Ctrl+Alt to close Afiinity Photo. The CPU was at 100% when I looked at it first. The screenshot is "just" 96,5, that is the lowest I observed before closing AP. Using a lot CPU... CPU overload... like in some other cases I read in this forum...
  12. If there is another crash, I will do that. I have been working since early morning today. No crash (yet). I'll be back to you if there is one. Have a nice weekend!
  13. Yes, I got that. Where do they go? Are they somewhere in my computer?
  14. Ok, this was a "bug", or whatever. I worked all day using Affinity Photo. No crash yet. Hmm...? Strange things happening.
  15. I use Affinity Photo (and Designer) for illustrating an app for Android and iOS. My pictures are 2730 x 1536 px at 300 dpi. Not very big. Sometimes the layers are, not many, but quite a few. I try to keep the number down by merging as soon as it is OK to do so. I always backup by having *.afdesign / *.afphoto and *.psd files of the same document. Just to be safe. Before Affinity I used Photoshop CC and never had any crash. Yesterday Affinity Photo crashed on me several times. I sent the reports to Serif explaining what I was doing. As I see it, the crashes came just randomly, not that I was doing the same thing all the times the crash happend. I am on a little old computer running Win10 home 64/bit, having Intel Core i5 3450 @ 3.10GHz, quad core, 16384 MBytes RAM and Intel HD Graphics. Never had any problems with that until now. I am suspicious about my specs on the integrated graphics card / processor. Can it be the cause of the crashes, maybe? I noticed the behaviour of Affinity Photo on the blending mode "Multiply" going dim, like semi-transparent hazy looking instead the normal behaviour. That is maybe a signal of something going wrong in the graphics thing inside my machine. I restarted it twice. All problems were gone after the restart, until next crash... How demanding and relying on the graphics processor is Affinity Photo? Is it possible that my soon 6 years old computer lacks what it takes to run properly?
