  1. This just came up after working on a file for about an hour. The started randomly. Just moving the cursor around the screen would cause a graphic glitch trail. It goes away when you zoom in or out, but it didn't go away. I had to restart for it to correct itself. Not sure if I'll be able to reproduce it, as I'm not sure what exactly caused it. But I just thought I would put it out there. affinity_bug.mov
  2. For me, I don't understand why only the inpainting tool always defaults back to current layer only. The healing brush and clone stamp tool don't. I'm sure there was a reason for this decision for this, but I at least wish we had an option to have it stay or default back to current layer only.
  3. Great. That would be a nice feature. Thank you for your time! Loving the beta so far. The performance increase is amazing! great work!
  4. OK, tested out the demo, and it seems to work. So, now I have a question, should the undo command reset the whole curves state, or just the last point added? I know for example in Capture One 11, if I add three points on the curve, each press of the undo key will remove each point, one by one. From your posted video it seems this isn't the case in Affinity Photo. Is this a feature, or design choice? Or is it something you might add later on? Thanks for you help, and time. I look forward to playing with the Beta!
  5. Cool. Thanks for the quick reply. I will give it a try! Just to cover all bases, I closed all other running applications, restarted Affinity, and restarted my computer as well. The problem still persists. I'll try out demo, and let you know! Thank you.
  6. sure thing! First time, you'll see me make three points on the curve adjustment window, then I press "command+Z" and the whole thing disappears. Then, I do the same thing, but use the edit tab, and select "undo adjustment parameter." and it deletes all three points, but the window stays. Then I make two points and press "command+z" and it removes the window. Even after making a different adjustment layer, and undo a few steps, when it gets to the curves, the undo will remove everything. curves_undo.mov
  7. I can't remember if it was always like this, or is a bug, but when I add a point and make a curves adjustment, and hit undo (command+z) it just removes the whole curves adjustment layer. This is especially alloying after I've made a few curve adjustment, and just want to undo my last adjustment. When I hit undo, it closes the curves window and removes the adjustment layer, so I lose all the curve adjustments I did. Has it always been like this? Is this a bug? I don't have this problem with the other adjustment tools. Just curves.

    Macro issue when opening from library

    I have the same issue. But even with the mouse (magic mouse) its still usually requires at least 3 clicks before my custom macros load. Sometimes it will require up to 10 mouse clicks or more before the marco loads. And when it does it usually preforms the operation like two times. I also can't get them to load at all clicking with the wacom tablet. It hightlights (turns blue when clicked) but nothing happens.
  9. Hmm. I'll have to look more into that. Always looking for different ways to make finer selections.
  10. Thats interesting. Could you go into more detail about using the blue channel to refine your selection?
  11. Thanks for the reply. Well, I think I just chose uncompressed TIFF because I wanted to give them the best quality image I could, so they the most flexibility afterwards, if they needed to alter anything. I since I know they will be printed in some way. But if the compression (I thought I read that it used LZW) I guess I could just export as a standard TIFF out of Affinity then. Yeah, I wasn't sure how long each initial RAW adjustments would take, so opted on doing a batch. But they actually didn't end up taking too long, so just doing them individually in AP would have probably been better. In fact, I might still do that. In, that case, I guess the best workflow would be: Process RAW in Affinity, develop, edit, export to TIFF?
  12. I want to deliver uncompressed 16-bit TIFF files to a client (unfortunately, I don't know the specifics on how they will be printed, like size, paper stock, etc..,) so I would like to give them the best image I can, then they can do what they need to on their end to meet their print needs. So I'm trying to work out the best workflow. There are 12 images I need to deliver, so I was going to batch process them into 16-bit TIFF files (from the RAW files), then open them in Affinity Photo to edit. Keeping in mind that AP can't export uncompressed TIFFs, what's the best workflow from this point? Open in AP, edit, save as TIFF with layers, then flatten, and deliver as is? Assuming that the TIFF I'm working with is uncompressed. Or , edit, save as TIFF with layers, then open in Preview and save as an uncompressed TIFF? Is there anyway to work with the photo in AP's file format, then get it back to an uncompressed TIFF? Not sure if I'm over complicating things, but all I really want to do is Take my RAW file, edit in Affinity Photo, and deliver an uncompressed TIFF. (The client actually requested a EPS file, because they will use Illustrator at some point, but that's not my problem lol.) Thanks for the help.
  13. Here is a short clip on the Stamp Tool. When I zoom out, it stays. I even saved it, closed AP, and re-opend the file, and it's still there. The healing brush tool, is usable, just i lot slower than 1.5.2 1.5.2 1.6.6 Thanks for the beta link. I will try it out!
  14. I absolutely love AP, and commend you on an amazing program! One issue I've constantly had is with the Clone Stamp tool. If it goes over itself with fast strokes it generates this pixelated look. I've provided a picture. I've been able to work around it, but there are times when it takes a little more time. This issue has persisted since 1.5.2. I was also excited about using 1.6.6 and it's new features, but unfortunately the most common tool I use (healing brush) has seen a drastic preformace drop. It's very laggy, and choppy in it's movements, making it very cumbersome to use. The clone stamp tool seems unaffected. Also when zoomed into a photo I often have to press command+0 multiple times before it registers and zooms to fill the screen. I have reverted back to 1.5.2 until the healing brush tools is usable again. I'm running a late 2013 27 inch iMac 3.2 GHz Intel Core i5, 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M 1 GB, High Sierra 10.13.2

    Close, save, does not close.

    Glad I wasn't the only one having this issue!
