Affinity photo Merge Visable Pixelation
Chris Monty posted a topic in Photo 2 Bugs found on WindowsHello Legands, New to using Affinity Photo and have run into an issue when trying to Merge Visible layers of vector images. When i perform this action Affinity Photo seems to automatically convert the image to pixels and cause the image to become pixelated. Is this a known issue and is there a fix to prevent this from happening. I use affinity for screen printing designs so pixelation is not my friend. Thanks for any help/ advice.
I recently bought a new notebook, since the integrated graphics card of my old one was quite weak for Affinity Photo. (New Notebook: Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 16ARH7, RTX 3050 Ti, AMD Ryzen 7 6800HS Creator Edition) After applying a few adjustment-layers followed by either merging visible layers or directly exporting the file as JPG, there will be a bunch of artifacts introduced. "Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling" is turned off on Windows, as mentioned in this article. Same issue occurs on Windows 10 and 11, tested it on two different SSDs. The problem occurs not only on this very image, but when applying several adjustment-layers in general. So far, I couldn't narrow it down to one specific adjustment-layer. I never had such issues on the old device. Windows is up-to-date, notebook-drivers are up-to-date and graphics-drivers for the dedicated Nvidia as well as integrated Radeon card are updated as well. I also made sure that Affinity Photo only runs on the dedicated card for better performance. Affinity Photo Version: 18.104.22.1682 (Downloaded via Windows Store). If I missed any details, feel free to ask. Any tips and hints are highly appreciated! Thank you! DSC02209.afphoto
Merge Down and
Intuos5 posted a topic in Feedback for Affinity Designer V1 on DesktopIn Photo there's an option to merge down or merge visible for pixel layers: In Designer, there isn't: So Please add the merge down and merge visible options for pixel layers in the Photo persona for Affinity Designer. So we can merge pixel layers without two step workarounds.
I bought a gaming laptop with an Nvidia gpu to speed up my affinity work. Unfortunately it is Windows 11. My affinity version is 22.214.171.1242. When I do a Layer->Merge Visible, I get artifacts created like this: This renders my use of the new laptop for processing useless. Please help.
Merge visible question
LLM posted a topic in Pre-V2 Archive of Affinity on iPad QuestionsI’m doing chapters of Affinity Photo Workbook on my PC. I tried this on a personal file on iPad Pro and Merge Visible isn’t reduciing file size. I still see all the layers below the new merged layer.. I recreated the file and I checked the size by going to export before and after merging and the file size is the same. I thought it would be smaller? Is there another way to check file size? I didn’t see it in the metadata studio.
Merge Layers creates new layer
NFG posted a topic in Older Feedback & Suggestion PostsUsing the Layers -> Merge Visible command, AP creates a new layer without removing the existing ones. I expect all visible layers to be merged into a one layer and then the individual visible layers be deleted. This is how basically every other application works. Is this the expected behaviour? (Merge Down works as I expect: combines two layers into one, so that only one remains.)
