  1. Hello, Im unable to add background image to 360 image (Merge down is greyed). How this can be achieved?
  2. It is really frustrating! It's been couple of years since I own Affinity Photo, and some essential stuff haven't been fixed/implemented. Working with cutouts at the moment, and only tool I can rely on for selections is Polygonal selection tool (It had antialias toggle available) and Selection Brush tool (for hair and stuff). Question is - where are antialias checkboxes for Flood select tool and Pen tool??? How can I select items by colour or fine select with Pen tool if there are no essential tools? Photoshop has all that! Its really been long enough...

  4. Thank you for your input! I quit all the apps and menubar items and it did not change a thing i performance in the same file! Then I tried to copy layers piece by piece to a new document, eventually, what turned out to be slowing things was Gaussian Blur live filter - after I rasterized it, things started to work smoothly - on and off works as before etc. So I guess live filters are not optimized for OpenGL or Metal in Mojave. When 1.7 is due by the way? Thank you everyone for you help!
  5. Tried to switch to all available options, performance is the same on all of them.

  7. Its happening with all files, just yesterday added simple 1080 png image on top of each other, tried to align and it was painfully slow even at that point. Maybe you want to see a video screenshot? At least that I can do with Mojave
  8. This is what I have at the moment, it very slow, even when I try to hide a layer I see squares slowly disappearing and no Im not doing any batch jobs, if by batch you mean postproduction on many different images at the same time.
  9. Hello, I'm experiencing a poor graphics performance after upgrading to Mojave, tried switching from OpenGL to Metal, which didn't do a trick and then switched back. Are anyone experiencing similar sluggishness? And maybe somebody can tell me ways to work around it? Thank you!
  10. Im using Material IDs (colour map of textures) a lot when selecting some particular objects and therefore Flood selection tool is the only option, at the first glance it seems fine, selecting all the matching colours etc. After I apply texture/colour/adjustment all the flaws can be seen, therefore workaround for me for past couple of months has been magic wand tool in PS. If devs could take a look into this and fix it in near updates I would greatly appreciate it. Attached below is comparison between results when using PS & AP, makes quite a difference. Make sure you click on that image to see it in 100%, also refining selection makes things even worse.
  11. Is there a place I can request Serif team to take a closer look on that Antialias feature? So, maybe they could try and make it to work the way it works on Mac?
  12. Thanks, but pencil tool takes a whole lot of effort to use, I thought maybe there could be a faster way with the same precision.
  13. @Paul Mudditt thank you so much for your help, but I still haven't figured it out. So, to clarify, I'm an architectural visualisation artist, and I use cutout people a lot. SO, I just wanted to try to cut them out myself using iPad and Affinity, but no matter how I try to cut things out, it gives me that jagged edge all around, which I have a hard time figuring out how to solve. Attached is whole dude, that I used for testing purposes, hope you can achieve a better result. Also, there is no problem with cutting things out using AP on desktop or PS on desktop, those apps somehow feather all the cutouts automatically and without my need to be involved. img_9485.afphoto
  14. Both of those images are zoomed 100% by the way. And the thing is, I really want to use free hand selection tool, because it gives me the best control over the stuff that I want to cut out.
  15. How to achieve this kind of smoothness though?
