Apologies if this has been reported before but I’ve been evaluating the trial version of Affinity Photo for Windows (v126.96.36.199) for a few days now and so far, I have encountered three times what seem to be a bug where the image I’m working on suddenly turns dark gray. The UI is normal, only the image is affected.
First instance is with a NEF file from a Nikon D500. The Image opened correctly (Colored) and was able to edit in Develop Persona. While working in basic tab, the photo suddenly turned dark gray. At first, I thought I may have done something wrong while editing. Moving the history slider back to the left did not do anything other than vary the exposure lightly. At this point, it didn’t matter what Persona I’m in or what slider I adjusted, the image stayed dark gray. I canceled the edit and closed AP, then reopened the same file only to come up colored for about two seconds then went back to dark gray. Third time seem to be a charm as it opened the same file correctly and was able to edit in Develop Person and eventually exported the image.
Second instance was a day or two later with a different NEF file/photo but from the same Nikon D500.
Third occurrence was with an old PEF file from a Pentax K5. This one I was already done editing and was simply looking around the image for a final check before exporting when it simply turned dark gray. Closing/Reopening AP did the trick but unfortunately, in doing so I’ve also lost all the editing I made. Has this issue been reported before or am I the only one?
