  1. Many Thanks Chris, apologies for the initial post I was a bit stressed! I’ll convert the files to tiff to see how that works out. Darren
  2. Hi Chris, I raised an issue previously about placing raw photos on top of created stacks (it’s still in my profile). That was reported back in late June. I basically stacked two to five raw photos, flash, ambient etc. Then added further raw photos on top for masking etc. That worked for some time, but then the issue started so to get round that I started stacking every photo I’d need. So sometimes 8 ish raw photos would be in a stack. On reflection that must have been no earlier than early June. So there were still a fair few photos that were stacked prior to this and that didn’t cause me such an issue. However, even though I’ve been editing for over two years I’ve still loads to learn. So if you wouldn’t normally recommend stacking that many raw photos how do I deal with this? I use raw so I can recover highlight/shadows when I push to the limit, which is quite often to get the range for property photos. Bear in mind I only have an iPad Pro?!! thanks
  3. 28AD5EFC-44E7-4DA3-A581-F81896F8A8B4.MOV Hi EdM, thanks for the response, but it’s not really helpful. If you read my initial post you’ll realise that everything worked well prior to the last update. Since the 1.7 update things have changed and I’m not the only genuine, regular user of AP to raise these problems. The lagging, where everything slows to a fragmented pace, the freezing happens to a greater or lesser degree with every file, dependant on how many stacked photos I’m using. The crashing happens for various reasons, I’ll be working on something and then it freezes, then after varying periods it crashes and the app closes. These were rare occurrences before the 1.7 update. I’ve raised this here, like any other issue I’ve had, to hopefully get a solution or get the developers to correct it. I am a loyal AP user, not someone who’s trying to discredit it. I’m raising it so that I can continue to use it as my main source of editing software. I’ve attached a screen recording to give an example of the issues. It’s not a complete start to finish process, nor does it show a crash, but it shows what’s happening.
  4. Hi, I have an iPad Pro 12.9 3rd gen, always kept up to date with latest release. It’s not on the current beta for the ipad iOS. Affinity photo is always kept up to date. I’ve been with affinity photo for over two years and this was the first experience of photo editing for me. I’ve mostly enjoyed the journey. I do property photography, take raw 14 bit photos with my Nikon Z6 and then blend from 2 to 8 ish photos, ambient to flash etc. I’m not an adobe troll I’m a loyal AP customer, but I’m seriously at the end of my tether. It’s constantly lagging, freezing and crashing far too frequently. This began with the 1.7 update and the latest update didn’t correct it, in fact I’d say it made it worse. This is my only form of hardware as I don’t have desktop or laptop to fall back on. So the additional time it’s taking to do my work is beyond a joke and to be honest very stressful as I have customers wanting their photos and a wife complaining I’m always editing. Has nothing been found that may be causing this issue as I’m aware others have reported this from back in June? If it’s not resolved soon affinity photo on iPad is effectively unusable for me and no doubt many others.
  5. Ok at least I know it’s being looked at so thanks. The next time I get one of the lines I’ll screen shot it and attach it here with all relevant info. I’ll also save the original photos and AP iCloud file in case you want to look at that.
  6. Hi Chris, sorry it’s the same issue as first described. But occasionally one of the pictures in the stack has a horizontal line either fully across or partially across. I didn’t know if this was connected to the other issue so I wanted to highlight it. I’ll try to replicate the line issue and attach a picture. When I stack, however many pics, I don't get any issues apart from the occasional line that I wanted to highlight. It’s when I’ve already got a stack or a single photograph and I go into place one on top. That’s when I get a picture with black bands at the top and bottom and low resolution. Like the original picture I attached. I can send pictures for you to check, but it applies to every photograph that I import from my iPad Pro. Let me me know what you want me to do? many thanks darren
  7. Hi Chris, I’ve updated to the new version and tested some of the issues I had. Thankfully a lot of issues are now resolved, apart from this issue with placing photos on top. Has this issue actually been addressed in the latest update? If not I just want to clarify what’s happening in case it helps. I upload all my Nikon z6 raw files from xqd card, via Sony card reader, to my iPad Pro. They’re then put into a file labelled with the property address. I open between 2-7 raw files by stacking them (with every option but live perspective) in AP. So all of that goes well, mostly. Occasionally I get a solitary line through one of the pictures, I resolve this by reloading them. Can’t upload a picture of this at present. Also don’t know if this was a known issue. I then do all my normal masking, blending etc. The only time I can resolve this is if I load a solitary picture into AP, that I want to place on top of a stack. Save it as a jpeg file in iCloud, in the actual affinity folder, wait for it to completely upload into the iCloud then place it on a stack I’m working on. Obviously this is a pain as it’s time consuming. Thanks Darren
  8. Hi, I’ve just updated AP and it threw a bit of a wobbler to start with. In the develop persona there’s no change to before, but in the photo persona crop tool there’s now an orientation button next to the thirds/spiral. The orientation button does the job!!
  9. Hopefully someone will pick this up as I’m sure this would be easy to sort!
  10. Hi, The composition overlay grid for the Fibonacci circle is a useful tool. I could swear blind that you could previously rotate this overlay to the four possible end points. However, this is not currently possible. Can this be changed so it can be rotated?! Thanks Darren
  11. Hi, thanks for replying. When I say rotating I mean the end point of the spiral rotating to the four points of the given picture. Like the attached ...
  12. Hi, I’ve searched for the answer, but can’t find anything. So I could swear blind that you could previously rotate the Fibonacci spiral overlay on the iPad?! I’ve tried to figure it out and by searching on here, there etc but can’t do it. Can someone help? Thanks Darren
  13. It’s still workable for me due to stacking, but a fix will be appreciated!!! Many thanks!!
  14. Hi, I have been using ap on iPad for approx 2 years. I do property photography so regularly have layers of photos for a bit, flash, masking in window view etc I shoot only raw files using my Nikon z6. Now I’ve experienced some issues when I first got my z6, but I believe this was down to apples code. However, this was all fixed so happy days. I started creating stacks of raw photos, regularly 4, 5 sometimes more photos. I’d occasionally try to place another photo on top without issues. This was all prior to the first 1.7 update, now since the update things aren’t working correctly. I can stack raw photos, but if I try to place another photo on top by clicking on the screen a very small file opens (photo attached). When I expand the photo there is a black band at the top and bottom and the resolution of the photo is terrible (photo attached). I tried it a different way by opened one photo and after closing the raw persona tried to place a photo on top. Same problem. Is there a simple solution as this is causing me a headache? Apart from that I like the new interface!! Many Thanks Darren Ps I used a brightness contrast adjustment to brighten the photo with the banding etc, but nothing else!
  15. Dan C, batch processing and macro creation on iPad is music to my ears. Don’t suppose there’s a release date for 1.7 yet?
