We recommend that you use this beta in preference to the store version if you are affected by any of the issues listed below. Affinity Photo Team  Changes Since 1.9.2.233 - The recent Metal changes have a couple of undesirable side effects. We have disabled them for the shipping version of 1.9.2. They will get cleaned up and reintroduced in the next beta cycle. This means the benchmark version remains at 1900 for 1.9.2. - Fixed issues which arise when resetting adjustments presets from the preferences dialog. - Fixed crashes with malformed ICC profiles. - Improved the reliability of panorama stitching. - Assorted small fixes. - Localisation improvements. - Help improvements. Changes Since 1.9.1 - Added ability to organise LUT adjustment presets, including support for multiple categories and import / export as “.afluts” files. - Significant performance improvements for assets (import, export, organisation, etc.). - Hardware acceleration has been improved to better make use of Metal (specifically to batch commands together into chunks, which gives the driver a better chance to optimise commands and provides a higher degree of abortability). The benchmark has also been tweaked to use multiple command queues for the Single GPU test, which makes it more representative of “real world” use. - Added support for OpenType reverse chaining contextual single substitutions. - Added ability to optionally sort brush categories by name or date added. - Improved the appearance of the UI when adding a pattern layer. - Improved performance of export and merge visible, especially in documents with Live Filters. - Assorted content download improvements and fixes. - Restored ability to access the long press menu in the hand tool. - Minor improvements to Gaussian Blur performance when GPU is enabled. - Fixed stacking / merging issue when performing subsequent merges / stacks using different files with the same name. - Fixed crashes when previewing the export of extremely large bitmap files. - Fixed crashes when manually entering a radius in the lens blur tool. - Fixed issue whereby width and height fields were not available when performing an unconstrained crop. - Fixed crashes when attempting to create greyscale layers from a spare channel whilst editing it. - Fixed potential deadlock issue when loading large files. - Fixed assorted small registration page issues. - Fixed a bug where some Live Filters would appear to move after save / load. - Assorted other small fixes. - Help improvements, - Localisation improvements.

If this is your first time using a customer beta of an Affinity app, it’s worth noting that the beta will install as a separate app - alongside your store version. They will not interfere with each other at all and you can continue to use the store version for critical work without worry. This beta is significantly different from the 1.8.6 version available for purchase - we strongly recommend that you do not use this beta for real work as data could be lost and the files you save are not guaranteed to open in previous / future versions of Affinity Photo. Thanks again for your continued support! Affinity Photo Team  Changes Since 1.8.6 - Added “Live Liquify” layers. - Added linked layers. - Added pattern layers. - Added text-on-a-path support. - Added the “Serif Labs” RAW engine to iPad. - Added “Export Timelapse”. - Added ability to create brushes from the current pixel selection with one click. - Added a new “Divide” blend mode. - Added noise reduction and tone mapping options into the HDR merge dialog. - Added external display support for iPad (in the navigator panel, once the external display is connected). - Added “Create from centre” for the elliptical marquee tool. - Added a benchmarking option in preferences. - Added an option to allow snapping to the bounds of the pixel selection. - Added per-layer antialiasing controls in the advanced blending menu. - Added curves adjustment to the tone mapping persona. - Added export preview panel (for raster types) - updates live whenever you change an export parameter. - Added JPEG-XR 101010 import support (useful for screen captures from Xbox, etc.) - Added support for 12bit grayscale TIFF files. - Added “Duplicate spare channel” to right click menu. - Added native CR3 support to the Serif Labs RAW engine. - Added support for Canon EOS R6. - Added a registration page to the app - this allows users to login and download owned content from the Affinity store. - Blend modes now work on “alpha only” layers (masks, adjustments, live filters, etc.). - Gradient map adjustments now support global colours. - Filter effects now work properly with global colours. - You can now single click a spare channel in the Channels panel to edit it like a layer. - The Curves adjustment now has numeric field controls for precise positioning. - Adjustments no longer auto apply when expending a section of the adjustments panel. - More filters now work on masks / adjustments / spare channels (Add Noise, Perlin Noise, etc.). - LUT adjustments can be exported directly from the adjustments panel, and batch imported from files. - Having a large number of LUT presets will no longer make application startup slow. - Assistant options are now available from preferences (so there is no need to open a document to access them).
  13. This has been fixed for RC2 - the menu should (and now does) work in any tool apart from the hand / view tool. Cheers, A

After a pattern is added and a tool selected, a faint grey box indicates the "real" area of the pattern which can be edited. - Added “Export Timelapse” - the ability to export a document which has undo steps as a video. Numerous options exist to control how the video is generated. - Added a new “Combined” result to the benchmark - to test performance contexts where vector and raster content is used together. The benchmark version is still 1900 - so existing vector and raster scores from previous builds are still valid and comparable. - Added per-layer antialiasing controls in the layer options window (it’s also hierarchical, which is nice). - Added a registration page to the app - this allows users to login and auto-install content. - Added support for 12bit grayscale TIFF files. - Added JPEG-XR 101010 import support (useful for screen captures from Xbox, etc.) - Added new splash screen. - Improved appearance of popup dialogs. - Reduced binary size. - Default to black-to-white gradients in the gradient tool (more gradient tool improvements are coming for 1.9, at last). - Filter effects now work properly with global colours. - Added noise reduction and tone mapping options into the HDR merge dialog. - Added curves adjustment to the tone mapping persona. - Added “Duplicate spare channel” to right click menu. - Merged assorted iOS14 fixes from 1.8.6. - Fixed numerous bugs with brushes, introduced in the 1.9.0 betas. - Fixed “Infer LUT”. - Fixed assorted other GPU acceleration issues introduced in the 1.9.0 betas. - Text on a path is now available in Photo. - Assistant options are now available from preferences (so there is no need to open a document to access them). - More filters now work on masks / adjustments / spare channels (Add Noise, Perlin Noise, etc.). - Improved experience when editing a spare channel (view artefacts, histogram and navigator). - Setting a blend mode on a sub-brush will now work properly - paving the way for import of PSD dual-brushes in a future build. - Fixed issues when attempting to add layers to a spare channel (!). - The “Serif Labs” RAW engine is now available on iPad. - Added external display support for iPad (in the navigator panel, once the external display is connected). - You can now single tap a spare channel in the Channels panel to edit it like a layer. - A benchmarking tool has been added in the preferences dialog. - Blend modes now work on “alpha only” layers (masks, adjustments, live filters, etc.). - Added a new “Divide” blend mode. - Added “Create from centre” for the elliptical marquee tool. - Allowed snapping to the bounds of the pixel selection. - Added ability to create brushes from the current pixel selection with one click.
