I'm a newbie. I click the layer (a photograph) I'm working on. I click the 'Blur' tool. I choose size, hardness, flow etc. And click click click ... it doesn't seem to have an effect on the layer. If I choose an adjustment layer, say Gaussian blur, then my only choice is to blur the entire image. So I'm missing something on the 'Blur' tool ... and can't seem to find an answer in all the terrific tutorials you have. A hint? A clue? All the best, Ben
This issue occurs in Windows 10 Pro (x64) v2009 (build 19043.1415) with NVIDIA GeForce GTX1050 GPU. System is fully updated with latest Studio Driver from NVIDIA. Earlier versions of NVIDIA driver also suffer. I'm relatively new to AP (v220.127.116.118) so have only started to use brush tools recently. Finding the blur brush tool not working I did some searching and discovered reports of issues with hardware acceleration going back quite a long time. HSL dialogue also seems to suffer. It was reported that disabling HA cures the problem, which indeed it does; but then other processes become decidedly less friendly (i.e. slow!). I've not found a topic that addresses directly the GTX1050, hence this post. Since this seems to be a long running affair, is it something we have to live with or can we expect a fix? I really don't want to go back to Lightroom or Photoshop!
The medium brush does not work as expected. when trying to clean noise from a pixel layer, the preview shows the expected result, but the actual applied effect is far lower or none at all. In case of fine details (1px lines), structures gets shifted by 1 px. medium brush issue 18.104.22.1688.afphoto 2021-10-29_19-32-26.mkv
With hardware acceleration switched on a chequered background shows through the brush area and no blurring happens. Blur tool does work OK with hardware acceleration switched off. Sharpen tool lightens the part of the image within the brush area but doesn't seem to do any sharpening regardless of whether hardware acceleration is on or off. This is with only the Background layer present and switching the brush type from Acrylic to Basic. Affinity Photo version 1.10.1(.142) Windows 10 NVidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super graphics card
