  1. With version 1 I purchased from Serif directly, so I couldn't use the Windows App Store to install, as you'd have to purchase it again from the App Store. However, with V2 licencing the App Store install is free and then you activate. Does this mean updates are installed automatically and saves the hassle of downloading files for every update? Are there any downsides to installing via the App Store? Does it install to the same locations as the standalone install file?
  2. Hi guys, With Windows 11 approaching, can you confirm if any testing has been completed on it with Affinity? I'm looking at installing the Insider Preview on one of my machines to have a look. All the best Carl
  3. I am seeing speed performance issues with Inpainting, Clone and also the crop tool. WIndows 10 / Affinity Photo 1.7.1. Note I also use a Wacom but, same happens with the mouse.
  4. Thanks Guys! The beta has resolved it. @FirstDefence - I'm using Windows
  5. Hi All I currently subscribe to Adobe and I'm finding it difficult to let go of Lightroom and Photoshop. I've had a Affinity for a while now and have gone through the Workbook to understand it better. However, I've found it's ability to carry out RAW processing in the Develop Module is lacking a little. If opening a DNG file (Which 99% of my RAW files are) I've found it doesn't render the blacks as well as a native RAW (Such as a CR2 for Canon). plus it doesn't handle the shadows and highlights as well as Adobe in general. More recently I've given an overview of Affinity Photo to our the Camera Club I attend, as I don't think anything comes near it for the price and is a great asset for those not wishing to go the Adobe route. As part of the overview I put a few DNGs together to show the club and came across a strange pink colour cast on a DNG compared to Adobe Camera RAW. See attached. I've also attached the DNG to get your thoughts. Keep up the good work guys! Designer is also superb!!!!! Carl 30_07_2018_Wales-2018-FUJI-XE1_174.DNG
  6. Hi All I've recently purchased Affinity Photo and Designer plus both workbooks and intend to get into both of them. Up until now I've been a big Lightroom fan but, have recently debated the value of subscribing to Adobe as a photography enthusiast rather than pro. Now I have invested in a Surface Pro I'm looking at my workflow and debating how I can get the best out of both. Setup Prior to Surface Pro: LR CC Classic RAW Photos and Catalog Synced with One Drive for backup Choices moving forward: 1. Stick with LR CC Classic Sync Catalog via One Drive RAW Photos move to an external drive and use between the two Use Affinity as my go to editor Plus Points: A workflow I'm used to with LR CC Classic Negative Points: Still paying for Creative Cloud, catalog needs to be synced before opening on surface and vice versa 2. User LR CC Sync all RAW photos to the cloud with LR CC Plus Points: Works seamless between both devices Negatives Points: Still paying for Creative Cloud and cannot open in Affinity from LR CC (Booooo!) 3. Sack of Creative Cloud Use Windows to manage files / other software and run with Affinity Photo RAW Photos all synced with One Drive Plus Points: No Creative Cloud Subscription Negative Points: Need to adopt a new method for managing RAW Photos and quick edits. These are the options I think I have but, as this is the place for all Affinity Photo questions, I'm sure others have their workflows that they could share. What RAW Processor / File Management System do you all use prior to opening Affinity Photo? I've seen DarkTable amongst others and also debated converting my files to JPG once finished editing, one to save disk space and two means the files are how I want them to look. Obvious downside is reverting them back to original if you don't keep the RAWs. Thanks for anyone's help in advance, it's greatly appreciated. Carl
