  1. Thanks @Lee D. My current batch of editing is on hold till we get this resolved so I'd really appreciate any insights you can provide.
  2. As far as I know there isn't currently anything from Serif and nothing I have found will recognise the native afphoto files. However, for general file navigation and especially for raw file preparation I absolutely can recommend DxO Photolab. I did a comparison some time ago (just for myself) and the output quality from Photolab was clearly better than Lightroom. It's only downside is that it doesn't have automated importing / renaming of files, etc.
  3. @Lee D just checking if you can get the crash logs this way or should I be emailing them somewhere?
  4. Thanks Lee. Please see the files at this link with 5 (seemingly) random crashes during today alone: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1laBrV6aTOnoNKLa4E3dSdkmI23OYnmS1?usp=sharing Also, no sign of any recorded Windows errors at the same time as (or close to) the crashes.
  5. Hi all, I've been an AP user for about 4-5 months now and have just begun experiencing random crashes on my desktop PC. I can't isolate what is causing the issues as it happens in multiple different circumstances and with different file sizes, different functions / tools, etc. It doesn't seem to happen on my laptop. Nothing has changed on the desktop that I can pinpoint. Specs are as follows: Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64-bit (10.0, Build 18362) (18362.19h1_release.190318-1202) Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8700 CPU @ 3.20GHz (12 CPUs), ~3.2GHz Memory: 32768MB RAM Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Graphics drivers are latest versions direct from NVidia I've lost 15 minutes of work about 4 times today. Never had this before so I'm very confused as to what's going on.
  6. Thanks for the response, toltec. I'm on PC, but I think you've thoroughly addressed my concerns for now - thank you!
  7. I'm a brand new potential user who's currently trialling Affinity Photo. I like a lot of what I see, but have two key features I am looking for. I've done some online research, but cannot find clear answers. Is there any way to have a layer mask displayed as an overlay (e.g. semi-transparent red). I know I can use the quick mask feature, but would love to be able to just paint directly onto a blank layer mask and then check for missed patches using a red overlay. Can this be done? I have seen some references to brush size and hardness being adjustable using CTRL+ALT and then dragging the mouse, but I can't replicate this with either left click (goes to colour picker) or right click (does nothing). I know I can adjust the brush size with [ and ], but really like the size and hardness adjustment to be in the same motion. Is this possible? I'm really hoping to move from Photoshop to Affinity Photo, but would need to find a good workaround for the above to not have it significantly affect my efficiency.
