    Affinity performance issues on Windows 10

    Observations on the latest Firefox update. Surprise, surprise the latest update of Firefox has taken it from a major consumer of CPU and memory (at times, under certain conditions over 50% of the computers assets) to insignificant 0-5% of memory maxing at 20 or so % and less than 25% of memory instead of 40-60% !! With the latest update of AP beta the loading and developing have had a very significant increase in performance. I'm still looking at a faster computer, be it with less urgency than earlier this week. Pete Karp Cashmere, WA USA

    Affinity performance issues on Windows 10

    Definite improvement, in loading a 25MB file this morning it looks like a 7 second improvement over the 22 seconds on 1.6.5.135 on my I7-7500 2.7Ghz machine. Since I've been using the Beta I have been taking advantage of using both versions, when the primary version bogs down with processing, I use my time to move over to Beta to work on a second photo, so it saves me quite a bit of time using that methodology. My question becomes... is there a way in which I can have multiple copies of AP in one machine? Either by buying additional copies, or any other method? Pete Karp Cashmere, Washington, USA

    Affinity performance issues on Windows 10

    Pretty much reflects my experience I currently have 10 images open, which is a fairly normal number for me, but that seems to be my machines limit for now. That being said, when I watch my CPU usage and frequently find it pegged at 100% and memory nearly pegged as well. I'm currently shopping for a more powerful CPU with as much ram as possible, the current machine is an i7 with a 2 core processor and 16 GB of ram and a SSD drive. Pete Karp Cashmere, Washington, USA
  4. Thanks for the FAST help, after I updated Photo this morning the vignette tool came to life, I don't know what the update was about but the program seems to have sorted it's self out. Thanks for the assist! Pete
  5. Yes, that was exactly what I was doing on several of my attempts. I am currently downloading a update that came up after my post, I will be attempting again after the update. I'm on a slow connection, so it will be an hour or so. Thanks, Pete

    Vignette tool works inconsistently

    Sorry if you caught my post on another thread, It looks like this is a more appropriate place to post My problem. After downloading my paid version last night (Windows version, on a Asus UX490) I had no results using any available instructions over a 2 hour period. The only way I could get a vignette was if I loaded a unprocessed RAW file and the first thing I did was apply the vignette. No results at all with JPEG, TIFF, or any partially worked files. Loading the same files in Photo Director 9, or ACDsee ultimate I was able to produce a vignette on the various files. I love what I can do with Affinity Photo, and I really liked the quality of Affinity's Vignette. What do we need to do to work around this flaw? Pete
