  1. The inside stroke has bleed of the shape colour. It really messes up how the stroke should look. EDIT: It also does it for images inside a shape

    Affinity Photo very slow

    Affinity Photo very slow

    I've found adjustment layers vastly dive bomb the performance. If you just have two shape layers great! That's why I can use Affinity Designer for UI/UX design fine. Any decent photo editing becomes impossible, the adjustment layers take ages to update and the dragging of adjustment sliders lag, you and up skipping which makes it difficult to fine tune, unless moving up 1 number at a time and waiting a couple seconds.

    Affinity Photo very slow

    Hi Chris, I'll try this when I get home from work. Thank you very much for your reply. I have an i7 2600K, My motherboard I'm not 100% sure, I bought the computer from a store then swapped out parts as it get's older.
  5. Hello, I've recently discovered Affinity as an alternative to Photoshop, Illustrator. I was looking to replace it at work and rather than paying £50 a month for CC, I can pay £50 for the software. I've been using it on my Mac at work and it's been an absolute dream to work with. In fact when it comes to working with large PSD's I've found it performs better than Photoshop. However, Windows is a very different story, it's so sluggish. My computer is very powerful, i7, 8GB RAM and AMD R9 Fury. When moving layers there is a second delay before it actually moves, when applying Adjustments there is a second delay before it updates. It makes the application unusable as I feel like I'm fighting with it to get it to move layers, sometimes it's so delayed I get lost in the layering system. Adding a layer inside a layer (nesting) takes about 2-3 seconds. Moving layers feel sluggish, just everything feels slow. I haven't tried Affinity Designer yet, however the slowness of Affinity Photo on Windows 10 is stopping me from moving from CC as I use a Windows at home and Mac at work.
