  1. Hi Gabe, ok, i tried to record that. I started with stitching pictures to a panorama. Then i klick on the crop tool. As you see, the mode is "uneingeschränkt" (must be "unconstrained" in english). This is default. First i klick on "crop to opague", because that is the minimum area i want to get as result. Usually i choose the inpainting-function next and then i try to expand the grid to get more of the picture - including transparent areas. But here is the problem. Even with mode "uneingeschränkt" selected by default the grid behaves like original size, if i pull the markers. But i found out something new: If i change the mode to any other mode and switch back to "uneingeschränkt" it works as it should. But if i klick on "crop to opague" again, it behaves as original size like before. You see the mode in the video. Seems as if the Button "crop to opague" resets the mode to "original size" but still displays "unconstrained". Just testet the other button "an begrenzung zuschneiden". Same effect.

  2. Hallo and happy new Year! When I stitch a panorama an use the Crop-Tool there are 2 Issues: 1. After using the button "An gedeckter Fläche zuschneiden" (I think in english it's called: "crop to opaque") the Grid always behaves like "original size" no matter which mode is selected. I cannot move single points without changing the others. In earlier Program-Versions it worked correctly. 2. If I klick on the Button "Vorgaben" ("settings" between "cancel" and Mode) Affinity Photo crashes.
  3. Thank you all for your help. The presets had disappeared in all adjustment options except HSL. I don't know what made them disappear. I don't think I deleted them. CTRL at startup helped restore them. Now I can continue to follow the explanations in the Affinity Workbook. Maybe I will create my own later to speed up my workflow. Thanks again.
  4. Hello, there should be several choices in the adjustment panel, e.g. for brightness the options brighter, darker, etc. With me there is only "standard" in all adjustment possibilities and nothing else. How can this be fixed? Photo Windows version
  5. I use Live-Filters (for sharpening, noise-reduction etc.) and adjustment-layers (curves and others) for a non-destructive RAW-development. Of course you can say "we do what we can do for maximum performance and Task-Management is the job of Windows". But as default every task has priority "normal" and this leads to a stopping system. At the end it is the users problem. But i don't think users like applications, that freeze their system. Even if the intention is good. Don't get me wrong: I see the advantages of affinity photo. They are the reason i bought it. But it doesn't make fun if the system is hanging on every action. Maybe you can get a "live-feedback" from the cpu and slow down a little bit if it is at the limit (as an option). Then you could still use all cores and get maximum performance without freezing the system. But is it right, that the graphic card does not support the process very much? The GTX970 seems to relax while cpu is stressed.
  6. Hello, I like Affinity Photo very much, apart from one issue: It over uses CPU For example: I opened a RAW-File in Affinity Photo, switched to Photo-Persona and jused some Filters and Adjustment-Layers. AP used up to 100% CPU, PC freezed several times for some seconds, I could not even move the Mouse-Pointer. Once Screen turned black and Monitor says "no signal". After a few seconds i got the screen back and PC continued working. AP freezes in lots of situations while calculating. Even while saving and after saving (when doing nothing) or calculating the size of a jpeg export. System Specs: i7-4790k, 16 GB RAM (1,5 - 2 were used), Windows 10 In Performance-Settings Rendering ist set to "Default (NVidia Geforce GTX 970) Graphic Card has 4 GB RAM. Usage of GPU was minimal. Never had such Problems with CPU or Monitor-Signal with other Applications. My PC usually works stable. Is it possible, that you don't use the complete cpu-power because AP is not the only Application running on a Windows-System? No other Application claims 100% and stopps the rest of the system. Would be nice if i could play some music in the background while working (for example) but on some operations i can not even move the mouse until calculation ist ready. Hope You can solve the Problem. Thanks! Regards, Thomas
