  1. Hi Dan C. Apologies for the delay in responding. I have been doing some research in editing and I have discovered that this problem occurs without warning and at any time in the editing process. I have come to the conclusion that it may be a problem with my machine as you cannot replicate the crash on your systems. Looking further into Firefox which is my preferred server, I have refreshed Firefox as there were some issues that Firefox Quantum has resolved. So I have refreshed onto that programme. I will continue to process photo files and see what occurs. I shall let you know. Thank you for your input. Roy Hesketh
  2. 1. The Affinity crash report folder is empty. 2. PC specs attached 3. Graphics card is up to date. 4. The same thing happens with and the Beta.
  3. When using either one of the two Affinity programmes, I can be using any of the tools or any one of the menu's and it's not always the same tool or menu, Affinity stops responding and the screen greys out. Some times it responds after a short time of a few seconds to a couple of minutes and sometimes it does not respond at all and I have to shut the programme down. I was delighted to see the Affinity stall at the photography show and I mentioned it to Chris Fitzmaurice, ( what a great name). He said that it could be because I was running Affinity on Windows and it was originally designed for MAC, but that there was a fix being built for the problem. In this particular case, I was using the distort filter, Horizonatal to Point. but it can happen when I want to save any adjustment that I have carried out and want to save. I have attached a couple of screen shots to try and show the problem. I have attached three screen shots. I was resizing the file. I have also attached the raw file of 29.4 mb. I can't attach a smaller file because of the problem. I had developed it and moved it to the Photo Pasona. IMG_1104.CR2
  4. Hi Walt. I have since uninstalled a programme that I used to use to resize from 72 t0 300 dpi and is no longer needed. I thought that may be interfering, so I want to test further before attaching a TIFF file. Thanks for your input. Just reading other postings on the new Beta and Other users don't appear to be having the same problems so it may be interference fom something on my PC. Will have to investigate further. RH
  5. When using the previous Affinity Beta and now the new Beta 243, I find that problems have been inherited by the 243 build. Up to last week 11/02, I could use the programme without serious problems. Then week beginning 11/02, when I tried to load a tiff file that had been processed from the raw file, by the beta programme, I started to receive a message reading that a non beta file could be damaged by loading it into the beta programme. The file had already been processed into a tiff by the beta, so it appears to be a false negative. Then after downloading the new beta 243, I am receiving the same message, for any file that has beem processed in the previous beta and loaded into the new beta. (A screen shot of the message is below). Further to this, when loading files into either the Beta version, or the non Beta version of Affinity, I get a message above the MENU BAR which says that Affinity Photo is not responding. Then when I tried to 'jog' the programme with either the left or right mouse triggers, the whole screen greys out. It can take anything from ten to thirty minutes for the screen to clear and at that point the chosen file appears loaded. Before I downloaded my first BETA, the proplem was only occasionally. After first loading the beta the problem got slightly worse, but only on the main Affinity programme. Since loading the new beta 243, it has got worse. I have just opened successfully, a Beta processed tiff in Affinity Photo 165.123. the released version. Then after closing it, I tried to load the same file into Affinity Beta 243 and was informed that the file is a release version document, when I know that I processed it in the Beta. It doesn't make sense and it driving me to distraction. I am uninstalling Affinity Beta to see if it was interfering with the Affinity released version. Then I shall reinstall it in a few days time and test it further. Regards Roy Hesketh.
  6. I have been using the Affinity Photo Beta extensively over the past couple of months. This is screen shot attached is coming on when I try to load a file that has been saved in tiff as a PGD? If I shut down the beta and load Affinity photo (not beta) the same file will not load until I have repeatedly pressed the left mouse button. then a message strip comes on the screen above Affinity and says Affinity is not responding. The blue timing ring is activated all the time. Then the photograph finally comes on. I can load a 'normal' i, e. tiff shot without problems other than waiting for it. Sceen shot from beta below.

    Affinity Photo Beta.

    Further to this flatten posting. I have just worked on another raw and flattening was carried out in 1.5 minutes (one point five). Further testing is required to ensure that neither of them were gliches.

    Affinity Photo Beta.

    I have down loaded Affinity Beta and evrything was OK from the Raw through to adjustments. After working several layers, they would not flatten. The flatten bar just continually scrolled for 15 minutes, then disappeared. The stacked layers were still there, they had not flattened. Before writing this part of this post, I have just ckecked and the stack has flattened so there is some delay between clicking to flatten and actually flattening the layers. So it seems to work, but there is some considerable delay.

    Duplicating a photograph

    Full image/document is the same thing. Thank you for your prompt reply. I shall try your answer and it (sounds) about right. Unfortunately, at my age answers don't come readily to mind and they need a bit of a shove. So thank you verysame. Roy H

    Duplicating a photograph

    Not quite what I was meaning, but it will do the job. What I want to do is make a montage of the same image, or document as it is called. Thank you for your input.
  11. How can I duplicate a full image to make two pictures of the same image so that I can manipulate one with the other?

    Introduce Yourself

    Hi Fantail; Tried to download CS^ from the Adobe site, but was blacked again by their insistence that I subscribe again. I'm reluctant to even contact them now I'm so disgusted with their higher than thou attitude.
  13. I must admit, I do tend to use Lanczos on the finished product. I do view at 100%, but only to determine and adjust noise and to detect and correct anomalies. Roy

    Introduce Yourself

    It's hi time I introduced myself. Roy H. Used to use Photoshop CC until they put the price up. So when I came across Affinity I jumped at it. Mind you at first I didn't think much of it, but that turned out to be unfamiliarity. I have a CS6 disc and thought I would use that in conjunction with Affinity as I purchased it for £600. That was before CC was launched. Then I updated to CC. But after dropping CC, I tried to load my CS6 disc and Adobe blocked it telling me I had to subscribe to their programme in order to use my own disc. Which I thought was underhanded as I had purchased it outright and had paid to use it. It won't even try to load, Adobe just blocks it. I tried to contact them several times to argue it out with them, but they didn't want to know. I should have left it on my system when I subscribed to CC. But thinking about it, CC was loaded over it so probably absorbed it but I should still be able to use a disc that I own. I'm not looking for answers, just making other people wise to it. Well that's off my chest, so HI Y'all. Great programme.
  15. Thank you 'I' Dedicated User. Switching in preferences did the trick. That's something new that I've learned. Incidentally why is it bilinear and not bicubic?
