  1. Does anyone else get frequent hanging when closing tabs? This happens about once a day to me and I have to kill the application process in Task Manager, losing every other open unsaved document. I use the latest official release.
  2. + This would be so handy! Please don't forget to make this work for selections of more than 1 layers! Currently, if I want to rasterize many layers, I have to do this on each layer one by one which is quite tedious.
  3. Thanks for the tip. Will I get the same range of colors and dynamic range with TIF though? DNG images created by JPEG to RAW AI are 32-bit color depth while TIFs are 16-bit. Also, why doesn't Affinity Photo read these DNGs similar to Adobe Camera RAW? Adobe Camera RAW seems to read the colors very close to the original JPG.
  4. It is attached in my original post just above the DNG. Does it not come up?
  5. Oh, I see. Thanks for the clarification! I'll just do some manual retouching until they match then.
  6. The only thing that pops up in my mind is to remove the concrete images from the rectangles, add a Gaussian Blur filter to the rectangles to soften their edges, rasterize the rectangles, and then bring back the concrete images.
  7. I've got a 16-bit ProPhoto document that I want to convert to to 8-bit sRGB. However, when I do this the image changes colors. Why is that? I thought that only Assign ICC Profile changed color. Isn't Convert ICC Profile supposed to keep colors unchanged? Please see attached. Notice the reddish tint of the on with the converted color profile.
  8. I use Topaz Jpeg to Raw AI to convert JPGs to 16-bit DNG files. I noticed that Photo and the latest beta of Photo ( open the DNG files with wrong colors. Why is that? Adobe Camera Raw opens them with correct colors. Please see attached some screenshots along with the original JPG image I used to convert to DNG with Topaz Jpeg to Raw AI.

    [Aph] Develop persona crushes colors

    Hi, @Dan C Thanks for looking into this. More info below. 1. Windows 10 x64 Pro, version 1809 (OS Build 17763.437) + Affinity Photo The same problem happens with Beta 2. I haven't changed a thing in any of the editors. No corrections were applied to the images after loading them in Affinity Photo and Photoshop Camera Raw and I can't salvage the crushed colors in Affinity Photo no matter what I do. I've just sent you the original NEF file on that Dropbox link as well as the original untouched JPEG as processed by the camera, taken along with the NEF. Don't mind the dates on the pictures. I changed camera batteries and didn't bother to set date and hour.
  10. I noticed that the Develop Persona in Affinity Photo crushes colors of RAW files. Whatever I tried in Develop Persona, nothing could fix the crushed color. This happens both in the latest official release and the latest beta. Please check the image below. This was taken with my Nikon D5000 DSLR, but exactly the same happens with my mirrorless Panasonic G7 too. I tested the RAW files with the latest version of Photoshop Camera Raw too and it doesn't crush the colors like Affinity Photo. Is the problem on my side or is it a bug in Affinity Photo? Please check the image below. Original JPG is the JPG taken alongside the RAW by the camera. I shot the image with the RAW+JPG option.
  11. Save failed... again! I tried saving everywhere - my documents, my SSD, my HDD, desktop... nothing worked. I had to close the document and lose my work.
  12. Thanks, @GabrielM I've just uploaded the files. By the way, I think I found where the problem is coming from. This issue happens when I've nested adjustment layers by dropping them in the layer's name instead of the layer's thumbnail. You'll notice this when you open and test the 2 files I sent. I generally like to drop adjustment layers in the layer's name because it's easier to select more than one nested layer. If I drop them in the thumnbnail, I can't easily select more than one nested layer at a time.
  13. Unfortunately, I can't share the document publicly with everyone. I can share it with the developers only for the purpose of fixing the bug.
  14. A strange thing is happening when I move or resize a layer with "Lock Children" turned on. Please see attached the video I recorded. This happens both with beta and the latest official release. layer_flashing.mp4
