  1. Hey Chris, Just tried the new 333 beta. The Legacy approach has definitely solved the problem. Tried with multiple files, and each one looks the same in 1.6 and 1.7. So just wanted to say thanks for effort!
  2. Thanks Chris. That sounds like it'll be helpful.
  3. Hey @Chris B, Got to do the additional checks that were indicated in that similar thread you linked to. Screenshots attached. One is the difference blend mode. I took a Stamp in 1.6.5 and saved. Opened the file in 1.7 (using the Make Copy option so that it would be editable). Made the 1.6.5 stamp hidden and took a new stamp. Set the 1.7 stamp to the Difference blend mode Unhid the 1.6.5 Notice the dark megenta pixels indicating that there is a difference In the second, are Info Points Took two Info Points and placed them on the image in 1.6.5 and saved Opened the file in 1.7 (using the Continue option, it opened in Read Only) Notice the different pixel RGB values The final one is a screengrap series of the Histogram in both application versions. All channels are different, but the biggest is in Red. I checked the Preferences panel. With the exception of the new options available in 1.7.0, the Disk Usage Warning, and some keyboard shortcuts I hadn't bothered to reconfigure, there's no difference between the two versions. I've also included the expanded layer stack so you can see exactly what I've used. If I can get you any more info to help in your investigations please just ask.
  4. Hey Chris, I've read that similar thread, and will try some more tests and upload them here when I get home this evening. Thanks for chasing it up. Regards, Paul.
  5. Hi, I noticed that the same .afphoto file opened in and in Beta looks different. (searched for, but couldn't find an existing post about this, apologies if it has already been discussed.) The file was edited in and saved. Then opened in Beta (making a copy at the non-Beta prompt). The Windows version of the applications. Could this difference be down to the rewrite of the HSL and/or Recolour adjustments? To test this, I created a stamp layer in and saved, then reopened the file in Beta. They looked the same. This suggests that the adjustments are rendering things differently. Going a bit further, with an instance of each application version open, I hid all layers except the Background, which like the Stamp layer looked exactly the same. Then turned on layers one by one in each instance. When I encountered the first HSL adjustment, the differences started. There's a few HSLs in my document, and they are the ones that appeared to have the biggest rendering difference. The ICC profile is the same for each image. I've attached a side by side screenshot. Is this expected? The concern is that images edited in an older version of AP will no longer be as they were intended when opened again in future (e.g. to reprint for a client). I can provide the .afphoto file if required?
  6. Thanks >|< Expiremented further after your explination of the expected behaviour. I hadn't noticed the switch to the gradient tool. But it makes sense. Because the tool auto-switches to the gradient tool for the new fill layer, why doesn't it switch back to the previous tool when the new fill layer is deselected?
  7. Hi, When a Fill Layer is selected, the Colour Panel will switch into a different mode (only one colour swatch), which allows you to choose the fill colour. If you select any other layer in the stack, changing the colour in the colour panel will replace the layer's contents with the colour you've chosen (just like if it was a Fill layer) Both Pixel and Mask layers are filled. The pixel with the colour, the mask with the equivalent grey. To cause a reset of the colour panel, select another tool from the tool panel. Then the colour panel will reset to the regular mode. The steps to reproduce are quite simple. Produce a simple layer stack, including a mask on one of the layers, so it's easy to observe the effect. From the Layer menu, choose New Fill Layer. The Colour Panel will change mode, pick the colour for the Fill layer. Without changing tools, select any other layer in the stack. Use the colour panel to select a colour. The entire layer will change to the chosen colour. Appologies if this has been mentioned before, I searched for it, but didn't find anything. If this is the expected behaviour, then you could inadvertantly replace masks and pixel layers with unexpected content. Usually it is easy to notice, but if you've a very delicate mask created, where it's only affecting a small part of the image, then it could go unnoticed.
