  1. Great job, as usual. Thank you!
  2. So maybe I will try to persuade him. It will be better if he contacts you directly, than through an intermediary like me.
  3. Thanks! As I wrote, this is not a big problem, but still worth solving it somehow.
  4. I'm still waiting for PTLens compatibility with current beta. I contacted the author of PTLens regarding compatibility with Photo, he wrote back to me: "PTLens uses Photoshop's standard interface. I don't have a direct line to their [Serif] developers so posting in the forum is your best shot".
  5. I think so too. But this is the default setting of the Photo interface. The photo should fit in its field.
  6. It's a small problem, but annoying. When I open the image in Tonemappping Persona, the right side of image is clipped. I think Photo should adjust the magnification so that the whole image is visible, depending on the screen resolution.
  7. Here are three screenshots. The first one shows the situation right after starting Photo. The second one shows the memory status after processing about 10 pictures. The third one - the state after about 40 photos. I observed that Affinity Photo process goes "asymptotically" to ~5 GB (that would be after about 100 photos or more - I experienced it about a week ago). More interesting thing is that the general memory usage is growing almost constantly and in the third picture reaches 50% (after a long enough series of processed images, it finally reaches almost 100%). Generally, no new significant processes appeared during the work of Affinity Photo. The only thing that I noticed is that Bitdefender main process reduced its memory usage. This is normal behavior of this program when it notices a significantly increased memory usage by other applications. When RAM usage reaches finally almost 100%, Photo acts much slower (particularly Tone Mapping Persona - probably it needs a lot of memory?). As I wrote earlier - it is enough to restart Photo from time to time to resolve the problem.
  8. I'm confused too. I was surprised because I have never seen anything like it. The computer with Photo will be available for me on the weekend, so I will try to document this phenomenon. I have a few photos to processing, so this problem should appear. And I apologize in advance for my imperfect English.
  9. I understand that caching is good (better to use RAM instead of HDD or even SSD). But my problem is that Photo slows down when it reaches 100% memory usage. After a long work I have ~5GB Photo process in memory (it's normal, as I understand) and total memory usage about 100% with no other significant applications working in background (16 GB total RAM). In this case it is enough to restart the program and for a long time everything runs smoothly. Until another 100% RAM. Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro (both 64 bit) that I had to deal with did not behave this way. Despite the use of large amounts of memory, they never caused it to be completely used after longer work. This is the source of my doubts. Maybe I simply have to restart Photo from time to time to restore its performance.
  10. After some testing I can easily reproduce the problem. In my case memory usage incerases gradually when editing a big series of photos. The algorithm to reproduce is simple: open any photo (TIFF in my case) do some edits (such as curves, levels, denoise, brightness / contrast, unsharp mask, etc.) export to JPEG close the edited photo go to point 1. After editing each subsequent photo, the memory usage by Photo increases. After a longer cycle described above, RAM usage goes maximum, regardless of its quantity and I have to restart Photo. It is understandable that the program can use a lot of memory while editing the image, but when it is closed Photo should free up resources. But in this case we have something like "cumulation" until the RAM is full.
  11. I confirm geprince's memory leak problem Affinity Photo consumes a lot of memory. The problem is that allocated (leaked?) memory isn't freed. I can't detect what activity exactly causes this problem - still trying to discover. After editing ~50 photos (denoise, unsharp mask, etc.) Photo can use almost all memory (regardless of its quantity - I have 16 GB) and I emphasize - that memory is not freed when all documents in photo are closed and Photo goes idle. RAM usage increases continuously during operation. Now I have Photo As I wrote - I'm trying to detect which activity mainly causes it.
  12. I perform the following actions: Resize Document (1.jpg) Live Unsharp Mask (2.jpg) Export Settings - Export (3.jpg) The result image (4 - IMGP6539_DxO.jpg) If you open "4 - IMGP6539_DxO.jpg" on a dark background, you will see a thin bright line (1px) at the bottom.
  13. I have a few relative small pictures (900 x 602 px) resized in Affinity Photo (original files are big - about 10 Mpix). After sharpening by Unsharp Mask (radius 1 px, factor 0,5) and exporting to jpeg I get a thin fine line at the bottom of each picture. For large images, the problem is not visible (not present?). I suspect this problem only affects images previously resized down in Photo editor, then sharpened and exported to jpeg (or other format).
  14. Is there anything known about PTLens compatibility? This is one of the coolest plugins but still does not work in Windows.
  15. This is my second post here. I think I should have started here. I moved from Photoshop Elements and I'm happy with that. I am an amateur photographer from Poland and usually take pictures in the area of Białowieża Forest.
