  1. I've included 4 files this time. The Affinity photo file format including the history. The JPEG export of the file, that had been reduced from its native res down to a smaller file size. File is now 13Mb uncompressed. The two files that show the current error crash log from the iPad and the console file created during the crash on the Mac. An addendum to me original post and as others have said, after exporting the affinity file it seems awfully large compared to the JPEG format, in fact its 13 times bigger. Even if we are conservative about the requirements, 6 times raw image size should be more than enough working space. Now if I make an assumption here about how the opened files are being stored with history, it does not look good. When Photoshop first came out the general rule of thumb was 5 or 6 times the image size is the amount of RAM required to edit an image, so not sure what Affinity is up to, but it does not look good as far as efficient storage is concerned. Even though RAW files are Lossless compression, they do need to expand out to their native res and use an equivalent amount of RAM. It seems that with a RAW file from a Canon 1Ds3 or 5D2, each file has a native size of 63Mb, and by these calculations you'll be needing over 800Mb per image, which, even in these days of cavernous storage devices seems a little extreme. So no wonder the app is buckling under the pressure and I now know why I'm happier working mainly in JPEG. Glad I got the 256Gb iPad. Anyway, hope this all helps.

  2. Please click on the "crash.txt" file in the first post for details of the crash. Patrick edited the post, for obvious reasons, to keep It short. I couldn't easily do this as I was only on my iPad Thanks Patrick. @jacki3wrfsef that is not something I've done before, so was unsure what you were saying. Never been able to click other devices as only ever used console for text input and output. I'll give it a try later.

    I've had this happen several times since installing the app. I'm using an iPad Pro 9.7" 256Gb wifi cellular on 10.3.3. It is also Affinity What I have noticed when switching apps using the 4 finger gesture is that intermittently the image will vanish from the screen just as you switch out of Affinity. When you return, the image is not visible, but shows up in the layers. I've included a screen shot of the layers menu showing the image and layers, but it's absent from the workspace. When returning to the gallery, and reselecting the image, it is back again. This is a bit of an inconvenience, but the work around seems to be to exit to the gallery and reload the image. On a side note, I have also observed that when switching apps using the 4 finger gesture, the image either moves across the work area or is resized, as though being zoomed in or out.
  4. Been playing with the Photo on my iPad Pro and have to say that at the moment it is far from stable. The latest problem, of at least 6 I've found is if you have a long history with an image, it has a habit of crashing when jumping too far back. I have about 100 entries in the history studio, which are all experiments on a single image. After each change I performed an undo, so that I could see how filters and such changed the image. This means the image is unchanged and as originally loaded. I stumbled on the bug, as I wanted to have a reduced history list, but instead of allowing me to jump back to the first change, it crashed. I was able to repeat it again and again. I am currently using iOS 10.3.3 on an iPad 9.7" 256Gb cellular wifi iPad with at least 90Gb free. the image is a 21mp JPEG directly from a Canon 1Ds Mk3 with no modification. The error report from iOS is attached: crash.txt
