  1. Hi,

    I have downloaded the new 1.7.0 version and followed by 1.7.1. The performance is a disaster and a real workstopper. Drawing something with any Brush tool is the worse I have encounter anytime (no matter if Healing, Brush or Clone....). I have a new top series NTB and Wacom Pro..... but I feel like working with old 486 PC :( I have been using AP for about the time of the first official release, but never saw anything like this :(

    This had not been a case of 1.6. version that one worked fine for me, but now I do draw something on Wacom and have to wait around 2 to 5 seconds till I see it on the screen, which makes any realtime drawing impossible :( I have tried restarting many times..... sometimes it works most time not...... It does not seem to be problem of Wacom as it looks the same working with touchpad or a mouse.

    Do not tell me I am the only one with this problem......

    Please let me now ASAP as I am a professional and this makes my job unable......




  2. Hi toltec,

    thanks, actually it help me a lot even for the setting of the Wacom tablet.....

    I have done the hardness so, that I have set one ExpressKey to mean "Alt"+"Right Click"+"Left Click" and then I can adjust it by Stylus :)

    I think I will be able to handle the Opacity somehow similar for the percentages.... not knowing know how, but I will get it to the Wacom somehow :D At least I will set one key to "10" and second to "100", which are the most desired "express" opacity levels for me....




  3. Hi Chris,


     yeah, it seems to me that it is usually while I am working with larger files. I do not see much correlation between the cases as it happened to me:

    while setting curves,

    drawing a mask,

    creating a selection,

    making Gaussian Blur Fx

    ....... cannot remember now the other cases


    It just throws the message and the session disappears.

    Sometimes it offers me a recovery file, but as of I am a Pro and working quite fast, there is usually a lot of missed work during that time.... (I am going to set smaller auto save timing ;) .... hope this App has this in settings....)


    And once it happened to me while I was drawing a large mask and still pressing, so maybe there could be some buffer run out issues - I do not know..... but my memory does not seem to be going even close to its limits.... allways still a few Gigs free.....




  4. Hi,


     I am encountering a lot of ERRORS and system falling without saving the work. It seems to me to be it something like 1 out of 4 opened sessions that it falls unexpectedly.... And honestly that is a lot.... usually I loose some work, not a lot, but still, for professional usage it is hard for me to catch up with the time missed. I know I am filling it up a lot, but I think it is not others do not do - cca 1.5GB a file and my PC is quite capable of holding such application (i5, SSD, enough RAM....).


     Otherwise good SW, I like it, not thinking of returning to P....S...


    Thanks guys for support ;)



  5. This bug is irritating me again and again..... Is it only me? :wacko:

    Why is it not possible to add a new Curves adjustments layer above currently selected Curves Adjustments layer? It always resets the setting I have done :(


    Please others, write if you have the same problem with this bug.... I think it is very unprofessional from Serif to leave there such an irritating bug :angry:




  6. Hi,


     I would like to know deeper about Export possibilities of TIFF format. In the Export settings I do not see the possibility to choose between ZIP, LZW, RLE or other compression possibilities. When I am exporting to TIFF it makes some file that seems smaller then compressionless file however I do not see what happened to it. I do not even know whether the file was exported losslesly or there was an information loss :(





  7. Actually no :(  The thing is whether I do open mostly .afphoto files or I want to have only .afphoto files to quickly open. Reason? I do open tiff and jpeg files a lot too, but I do not want to open them again, however I am returning to my work - .afphoto files - often. Therefore when I just open 10 tiffs once all the .afphoto files disappear :( However I do not care about those tiffs anymore, I want to return to my working .afphoto files ;)


    However, thanks for contribution, Alfred.
