This is my first post on this forum so hello haha.
now for the problem....
When i have a RAW image (it also does it with jpeg btw) that i am editing in
Affinity Photo on the iPad Pro (IOS11) and i add the filter “Depth of Field” it works like a charm,
but when i click on ✔️ to accept the effect on the layer,
it just keeps on loading and loading... I let the loading screen on for 45 min LOL,
so i can only say that affinity crashes when using the depth of field blur effect.
What i have tried to fix it:
- Uninstalled the app en reinstalled it: Nothing changed.
- with only one layer (no other editing done): Nothing changed, same problem
- Took different pictures to try: Nothing changed.
So i come to the conclussion that it really is a bug that needs to be fixed soon.
So that was problem 1, then i also have another things:
- I am right handed, so when i use my pensil why is the undo button on the left corner?
This is really enoying because i always have to get out of the working flow
because i have to take away the pensil from the screen to undo.
I think it would be wise to have multi touch like: two vingers tab = undo, three vingers tab = redo.
- When i am traveling i always have a wireless external harddrive with me
but i cannot save anything on there with affinity, opening yes but saving it to my drive no,... WHY?!
I tried: WD Wireless Pro, Seagate wireless, Lacie Fuel not one of them worked to save my affinity files on.
Yes, i know you can save it to the cloud, but when i am for example in Cuba for a job i don’t have internet....
In my eyes this is really a huge, epic fail and problem with Affinity Photo.
This could be the photoshop killer for me but without this saving option
it’s just another app and not a professional workspace.
Is this changing in the nearby future? Are you guys going to fix this in an upcoming update?
I really hope so because i would love to step over to Affinity in my professional work.
- The patch tool, works sometimes but sometimes it’s very glitchy.
When i select the part i want to change and i drag the pensil to place that i want it to take,
it takes most of the time a completely different part on the image... uhhhh haha
This makes the patch tool almost unusable and very unrealiable.
- Multi-touch with your fingers
I already said it somewhere but i think this is really a great and a huge miss.
To touch with two finger the screen for let’s say a undo action would change alot for the better,
take procreate 4 for example, they killed it with there multitouch and it works like a charm.
- Saving options
Yes this for me is really the most important part that needs to change and i ask you developers,
Fix this please, because without the saving option to a wireless external hardrive,
Affinity Photo is just another app and not a professional workspace.
So i think this was it, i have to say after all the problems that i named
i also need to say that i really love the program and i think that it has great and epic potential.
I hope you guys have some answers for me and i think a lot of other people
have the same questions and problems.
Thank you guys for making this software available to us all,
now let make it the best app in the world!!
