  1. I, too, get this prompt no matter what I try to export.
  2. Using MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6. Exporting files in Photos 1.7 crashes the app, which then has to be force quitted. The same files can be exported successfully using Designer. This could be something to do with the new request for export permissions, which doesn't show on Photo (it seems to be trying to display it!), but does show on Designer. I've attached a screenshot of when Photo crashes, and below is a link to the File Export post. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/87375-file-export-additional-step-in-17/
  3. Thanks for your reply. I've attached the original and the edited version, which has much of the History saved. The original has minor edits, but it's before I started making the selection. The edited version is the one I used to make the above screenshots. original.afphoto edited.afphoto
  4. Please see the attached screenshots. I want to cut-out this ornament leaving a transparent background. I used the selection brush along with refine selection. I thought I'd done a decent job until I copied the selection and pasted onto a white background. The edges are jagged and some of the original background, which was outside of the selection, has also been copied over. Also, if I cut the selection there are remnants of the image left behind. What am I doing wrong?

    Can't load multiple jpgs

    Hi Yes, you're right; I just tried the beta and it works fine.
  6. Photo won't open multiple jpgs at once (if it's more than three). I tried to open thirteen, which causes iMac's CPU's load to be 378% (for Photo), and I have to force quit the app. The combined size of the jpgs is only 40MB. It seems I can only open three at a time, any more than that won't happen. I've tried dragging the files onto the app icon, dragging then onto the app's window, and selecting multiple files via the 'File->Open...' dialogue. iMac specs: CPU: 3.2 GHz Intel Core i3; RAM: 12 GB 1333 MHz DDR3; Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 5670 512MB; HDD: 1 TB (with 414.25 GB free). Running High Sierra 10.13.2.
  7. Hi Sean Thanks for your reply. I look forward to seeing what the devs say.
  8. In Photo, after altering an image using the Perspective Live Filter, I tried to use the Inpainting Tool. However, the tool's target area is offset—the actual painting takes place diagonally left of the area I'm trying to affect. The same thing happens if I use the Paint Brush Tool. I've attached a video which shows what's happening. If I use the Perspective Tool this does not happen; brushing works as expected. InpaintingAfterPerspectiveCorrection.mov
  9. Hi Lee Great, thanks for replying so quickly.
  10. I've just formatted my iMac and reinstalled High Sierra. I have a full backup of my system before formatting. Can anyone tell me where I can find my old custom brushes etc? I've looked in the backup Library folder, but can't find anything relevant. I thought they'd be in Library/Application Support.
  11. You're welcome. I spent ages trying to work this out. Sometimes things are too obvious to notice.
  12. I'm so sorry to waste your time, but I think I've suddenly found the solution. The opacity was set incorrectly. User error! :unsure:
  13. Thanks for your reply. Yes, as far as I can see I've set the colour preferences to be identical in both programs. I've attached screenshots of both preferences dialogues.
  14. I've set the colour preferences to be identical in both Photo and Designer, but colours look different when compared side by side. For example, if I create a simple rectangle in Photo and fill it with blue, then copy its value and create a rectangle in Designer and fill it with exactly the same blue it looks paler in Designer. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.
