    Bardo70 got a reaction from Blondiwem in affinity photo Unhandled Exception 0xC0000005 cannot start crash reporter   
    Hi, hope you guys can provide some help on this.

     I am using version, today they ap started crashing after using the selection brush. 


    I got the following error:

    affinity photo Unhandled Exception 0xC0000005

    there is also another window advising that he crash reporter cannot start.  I click OK on this last window but must close the error pop-up window (e.g. can’t click on OK, need to click on the x)


    As mention the first time it happened was when I used the selection brush (W), the second time after printing.


    The only thing I have change in the last few days was the printer, now using an Epson xp-960.

    Hi Septimus,
    Thanks for your report. We are aware of the portrait issues in the Nik Collection plug-ins (as well as others - more info here - click on the plugin name for details).
    Regarding the cropping, this is because the crop in non-destructive in Affinity Photo, in other words it retains all the original image data until you rasterise the layer (in case you want to re-adjuts the crop later) and so seems it's sending all data to the plug-in. I will pass this to the dev team.

    Click here to download the latest beta

    Status: Public Beta
    Purpose: Stability
    Requirements: None

    As this is a beta release, it is considered to be not suitable for production use. This means that you should not attempt to use it for commercial purposes or for any other activity that you may be adversely affected by the application failing. In addition it is worth noting that files created in Affinity Photo 1.5 cannot be opened in Affinity Photo 1.4, which means that they cannot be opened in the latest Mac App Store version of Affinity Photo, and instead you will need the latest macOS 1.5 beta.

    We hope you enjoy the latest build, and as always, if you've got any problems, please don't hesitate to post here and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. Thanks once again for your continued feedback.

    If you have a general question about the software, please head over to the Questions Forum, or if you have any suggestions, please head over to the Feature Requests forum.

    Hi Bardo70
    We currently don;t use .psd or .afphoto files for the HDR merge. I shall move this into our feature requests section. In the meantime i would recommend exporting the images to a format such as tiff

    Here is a link to the Affinity Photo Help File in Epub Format for Version 1.5 (Updated December 7, 2016) works great in Ibooks.
    Very convenient to have in a portable format - or to use side by side with Affinity on your computer.

    Just download it to your ipad and pick "open in Ibooks"  or download it to your computer and email it to yourself and then pick "open in iBooks" from your iPad. 
    The "un-named" entry at the top is the table of contents as in the help file and it scrolls on my iPad.  However it does block the screen content.  If you choose to scroll the "table of contents" from Ibooks it is not hierarchically organized - but the screen is full.  Best way to find something after that is to do a search.  Its very comprehensive.   (My continuing love/hate relationship with technology.)
    Its a spectacular resource on an iPad Pro.   If you have an android tablet, go to Google Play and search for "epub reader".
