  1. hello thanks for your quick response ... i kept looking for possible reasons ...one thing in pref/performance ap had grabbed all 32 gigs of ram so i turned that back to 20 gigs and moved the canon raw files to a different drive ... no fan noise ...so maybe these changes helped. My old imac that also runs ap has 32 gigs of ram but that was set to around 20 gigs and has never had the fan problem. anyway all the best with ap ... s
  2. hi opening a canon raw and doing some very basic adjustments causes the imac 5k to light up loud with fans to the point where affinity photo 1.51 is unusable. the imac i7 is a retina running el capitan, 32 gigs ram, 2tb fusion drive, the file was also located on the fusion drive. so just a few tweaks in curves ,noise reduction and zooming in was enough to make the fans blast on ... so is this normal for affinity photo 1.51? also is the tone mapping re editable? or is it just rasterised? should not all personas be editable like a smart object? .... miss smart objects. also with plugins where the plugin launches its own window in the host [normal behaviour in photoshop} nothing seems to happen ...maybe you should post a list of plugins that work. also have you thought about making a develop persona /plugin colour correction.... in affinity and photoshop is incredibly crude compared to dedicated multi level colour correction software [ think baselight nuke plugin]. Or perhaps a optional flow graph based work flow ... layers is like being in 1990 again. really like affinity photo ...runs really well on my old mid 2011 imac but i wish you would take the product beyond a ps matcher and develop image creation to a new level. best s
  3. hi using a retina 5k i7 32 gig ram 2 gig fusion drive el capitan ... as soon as i open a canon raw file 6k x 4k and start to develop the fans light up in the imac ...the file is located on the system fusion drive. So just some luma curves, noise reduction zooming in and then way to much fan noise ...so for me on this imac affinity photo 1.51 is unusable. on a older mid 2011 imac 32gig ram spinning drive all is good ps the program loads photoshop dngs wrong... they are being interpreted wrongly.
