  1. Thank you Chris B. I don't fully understand what you mean by 'rendering tiles' but yes that sounds relevant because there are rectangles with (what I call pixel-shear) on both sides so the lines I'm talking about appear at regular intervals across the image. I tend to use a Dell XPS13 laptop, so reasonably modern, but agree a desktop machine with dedicated high performance graphics card is better for work like this. Thank you for taking the time to give me feedback. We all live and learn. Cheers!
  2. Thanks Chris B, I'll try rasterising. Yes I use the FX button to the right of the Layers button in the panel on the right, select Internal, then usually black or white line and choose typically 2px width for the outline. Thank you, I overlooked rasterising!
  3. I normally add a thin 'keyline' or 'outline' to my digital images before presenting them. This works fine for JPG images but fails on TIFF images: If I have done any adjustments, such 'inpainting', to a TIFF image, when I come to add an outline to the TIFF image the outline goes around the area I have inpainted, as well as the outside of the entire image. Therefore I have to save the image as JPG, then open the JPG version and add the outline as separate steps in my workflow. Is this a bug?
  4. When rotating an image in Affinity Photo I get small feint lines through the image. I think it is pixelation or pixel-shear caused by the rotation. If I do the 'rotate' action in another app, such as Windows Photos, I get a clean rotation without getting any lines through the image.
  5. When working on a JPG file in Affinity Photo, with page units set to inches, I select the crop tool and go to Custom Ratio, when I try to set the dimensions to 16" x 12" I have to enter the X and Y sizes twice before it sets the ratio as required. This bug was introduced in V 1.7.2 which I downloaded on 18Aug2019.
  6. I've noticed that when I zoom in on a high resolution photo to, say 800%, both Serif photo products (Affinity Photo and PhotoPlus X8) show pixelation. If I zoom in the same amount using other photo applications, such as CyberLink PhotoDirector 7 or the Microsoft Photos application that comes with Windows 10, there is no pixelation at 800% zoom on the same photo! FYI: The photo was taken using a Sony RX10 III which has a 20.1 megapixel sensor and Zeiss lens. Does this mean that Serif applications introduce pixelation at the application's limit, or do the other applications blur the image?
  7. Update: I found that the folder C:\Program Files\Affinity\Affinity Photo was 'locked' somehow (probably a failure in the update script left it 'open') and that stopped the new update being able to write to this folder. i.e. I couldn't manually delete or re-name the folder either, even with Admin rights. I did a re-boot of the PC and that cleared it - the folder disappeared following a reboot thus allowing version 1.5.1 to install correctly thereafter. I had to re-enter the Product Key but that was no problem. This happened on two PCs, one running Windows 10 Pro and the other running Wind
  8. When installing Affinity Photo 1.5.1 update it failed and error message said: The installer has insufficient privileges to access this directory: C:\Program Files\Affinity\Affinity Photo.. I ran the installer with Admin rights and it still fails !! See attached error message: Error Msg.pdf
