  1. This build has been superseded by 1.7.1 announced here We are pleased to announce a major update for the MacOS release of Affinity Photo, version 1.7.0 The changes in Affinity Photo for MacOS 1.7.0 over the last Affinity Photo patch 1.6.7 (1.6.11 PK) are as follows: CHANGES SINCE LAST VERSION EDR Added support for EDR displays to Photo. When editing a 32bit document, enabling EDR will switch macOS into a mode whereby it will increase the backlight intensity and darken screen content - increasing the dynamic range available when rendering content. Performance The core processing engine in Affinity Photo has been rewritten to take advantage of the powerful discrete AMD GPUs in modern Mac hardware. It will now automatically use any compatible discrete GPU, alongside the Intel GPU support present in 1.6. Typically this improves compositing / editing performance by at least 1000%. Performance when using integrated Intel GPUs has also been massively improved. External GPUs (eGPU) are also supported - including hot-plug-and-unplug support. Multiple GPUs are supported - if you have more than 1 GPU (ie. Intel + AMD in MacBook Pro, or Intel + eGPU in other Macs) Photo will use them all, at the same time, to improve performance. There is no limit to the number of GPUs which can be used. Brushes Photo 1.7 introduces a new “sub-brush” mechanism, developed in conjunction with Paolo Limoncelli (DAUB® Brushes). This exciting feature allows any brush to have a list of other brushes attached which will draw at the same time. Each sub-brush has a fully separate and customisable set of dynamics. You can control when the sub-brushes are drawn and how they blend with the main brush. The brush engine in Photo has been rewritten to use the new GPU architecture described above. With GPU support, even huge brushes with 1% spacing will perform well. All brushes / brush tools are accelerated. Symmetry (up to 32-way) is now supported - including on-canvas controls and optional mirroring. Wet edges and accumulation are now available on colour brushes and brushes with HSL variance. Brushes with multiple nozzle textures have always chosen the nozzle at random. In 1.7, the nozzle choice has a dynamic controller and ramp for greater control. All brush tools now support left and right arrow keys for rotation - a common feature request. Allow Ctrl key to be held when typing numbers in a brush tool (will change flow instead of opacity). Fixed ABR brush import (would ignore "random" controllers). RAW The RAW processing engine in Photo has been rewritten - producing better results and improved performance. It also takes advantage of the GPU architecture changes described above. RAW files now load much more quickly - especially if you have a compatible GPU. Reimplemented support for XTrans sensors. The denoise algorithm has been rewritten. It produces better results and takes advantage of the new GPU architecture. Hot pixel removal is now automatically performed by the Serif Labs engine. Profiled lens correction are more stable, apply more quickly, and can be toggled in the Develop UI. The histogram in the Develop persona is now presented in the output colour space - as opposed to always being linear. Develop now respects the output profile when previewing. Added support for CR3 RAW when using the Core Image engine. Show which autofocus rectangles were in focus and which were selected by the camera (yellow, green respectively). A large number of new cameras are supported for RAW development (we will provide a list of the new supported cameras as soon as possible!). Automatically fall back to Core Image for cameras which are not supported by Serif Labs. Filters New “Procedural Texture” filter with advanced presets support. New “Voronoi” filter. Denoise, Clarity and Shadows / Highlights filters have been rewritten (using technology from the Develop Persona). More filters are now available as Live Filters - including the new Procedural Texture filter. Live filters have been rewritten to improve performance - especially when multiple filters are used in a document. Improved Polar to Rectangular and Rectangular to Polar filters. Added round dot type to the halftone filter. New “Lens Correction” filter - apply lens correction from the built-in lens database. Bilateral blur accuracy improvements. Adjustments The HSL adjustment layer has been rewritten. It now supports custom hue ranges, a new algorithm, new UI and picker controls. The Levels adjustment layer now supports output levels - a common feature request. The White Balance adjustment layer has been rewritten. The Selective Colour adjustment layer has been rewritten. PSD import / export of adjustments has been improved. The Vibrance adjustment layer has been rewritten. The Recolour adjustment layer has gained a lightness slider. Layers Layers Panel- added option for transparent background for thumbnails. Layers Panel- added multiple thumbnail size options. Layers Panel- added ability to tag layers with a colour - including PSD round-trip. Allow Panel an empty group from the Layer menu. New “Duplicate Selection” item in Layer menu (old behaviour). Duplicate now duplicate the whole layer ignoring pixel selection. Alt / Option is now used to make a pixel selection from layer luminance. You can now also hold shift to add the result to the current selection. Hide / Show / Show All Layers options in layers menu. Ability to either rasterise or rasterise and trim a layer. Previously recorded macros will trim. Selections Significant improvements to selection refinement. When using selection tools with no pixel selection, default to New / Add as appropriate. Added “Alpha Similarity” to Select Sampled Colour tool. Tools Grouped tool shortcuts now default to needing the shift key held to cycle (option in preferences). The Crop tool has been rewritten - it now supports resolution changes, absolute pixel size and has a much improved preset mechanism. The Sponge Brush tool now gives more correct / pleasant results. Allow brush rotate / size key changes while dragging. Added a “Reveal Canvas” checkbox to the crop tool - defaults to off. Added new “Transform object separately” mode into Move tool. A general tools overhaul has been performed - providing editing of grids, guides, page origin, across multiple tools (not just in the Move tool) Patch tool now supports arrow keys for rotate / scale. All brush tools can now be axis constrained once brush has started - not just the pixel tool. History “Alternate futures” for document history have been added. Traditionally, if you roll back the undo history then do something else all your changes after that point are lost. Photo will now display a small branch icon in the history tab when you do this. Pressing that button will cycle between all the different “futures” after that history entry - meaning you will never lose work you have done. The History page now has an “advanced” mode - which shows thumbnails and time info. I/O HEIF images can now be loaded directly into Photo. If they contain a depth map, this will also be loaded as a second layer. Because depth maps are typically lower resolution than the main image, optional “smart” upsampling will be performed. TIFF export now has user selectable compression method. Added support for 12bit TIFF files. Introduced new metadata mining - completely rewritten to improve performance, flexibility and correctness. Metadata is now dynamically synchronised with your document - so if you resize then export, the values will be correct. Added Focal Length to metadata summary view. Added a button in general preferences to open a folder from which Photo will read LensFun-style XML files - if users wish to add / experiment with their own lens profiles. Support 16bit CMYK TIFF import. General New ability to control how macros are scaled / aligned when playing back. Added an “Assets” panel to Photo. New cube setup mode for grids. Add “Fill with Primary / Secondary” to the Edit menu for fast access. The batch process dialog now fully supports expressions for height and width - available constants are “w”, “h” and “dpi”. “Lock guides” added to menus. Support for drag dropping .afstyles into Photo. Support for drag dropping .afpalette into Photo. Photo now supports custom document presets - a popular feature request. A new blend mode - Linear Burn - has been added. New “Move inside / outside” commands have been added - useful for quick operations on clipping masks etc. The Hard Mix blend mode has been improved. New provider options have been added to the stock panel - support for Unsplash, Pexels and Pixabay. All of these providers offer full-resolution stock imagery which is free to use. Numerous text improvements have been made - including new features. Significant stability improvements when working on non-local files (network shares, USB drives, etc.). Significant PDF import / export improvements and fixes. Huge macro and batch processing improvements New welcome screen layout and all new samples. Numerous other bug fixes - too many to list! This thread is for commenting on this announcement. Please do not post bugs or problems that you find when using this version of the software in this thread, instead make a new thread in the Photo Bugs on MacOS section and questions about usage go in the Desktop Questions forum. UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (Free for existing customers) For purchases from the Mac App Store: These are done automatically (next time you run after it is available in the store). In the Mac app store, go to the updates panel and press CMD+R they might appear. Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world, sometimes taking up to 72 hours. For purchases from the Affinity Store: Each time you start the software it will check for updates and offer any available update, or in the application main menu there is an option "Check for Updates", or it can be downloaded from here (that link is NOT for Mac app store purchases). Alternatively you can log into the affinity store here and find the order in your account and use the download button in there.
  2. We are pleased to announce a major update for the iPad release of Affinity Designer, version 1.7.0 The changes in Affinity Designer for iPad 1.7.0 over the last Affinity Designer patch 1.6.4 are as follows: CHANGES SINCE LAST VERSION • Shortcut modifiers added when keyboard is attached• Arrowheads!• Node tool now has transform mode for more freeform editing of nodes• Node tool now allows for lasso selection of nodes• Alignment widgets have been added for much faster alignment operations• All new isometric controls - allowing you to create and edit directly in any isometric plane• Add multiple strokes and fills to a single shape with the new Appearance Studio• New point transform tool, allowing you to scale and rotate objects from any node• Many grid improvements, and new column guides• Many PSD import / export improvements• Layers Studio now includes options for transparent backgrounds and colour tagging.• Pixel persona now supports Sub Brushes, symmetry (up to 32-way) and on-the-fly nozzle rotation• Alternate futures for document history have been added• 100s of other bug fixes and improvements - too many to list! This thread is for commenting on this announcement. Please do not post bugs or problems that you find when using this version of the software in this thread, instead make a new thread in the Designer Bugs on iPad section and questions about usage go in the iPad Questions forum. UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (Free for existing customers) For updates from the iPad Store are done automatically (next time you run after it is available in the store). You need to be logged in as the same user who bought the application. Open iPad store, go to Updates. Once you're there, from the top bar choose Store and on the dropdown click Refresh. It worked for me - both updates appeared instantly. If they dont' theres no point asking us we cannot make it appear quicker. Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world sometimes taking up to 24 hours.
  3. I am asking this as an IT engineer within our company and not as a user. When an older version is started , there is a message box with the message that a new version is available, and a OK- and Download-button. How can I make sure that this is disabled? Users do not have download permission or installation permissions. I do not want that users see this message, I already receive emails when a newer version is available. This saves me a lot of incidents (all users want the new version yesterday). Note for other IT Engineers: the license-key property in the msi in version 1.6.0.89 is renamed from PK_PROPERTY to PRODUCT_KEY_PROPERTY. So create a new mst.
  4. Hi there I'm using Affinity Photo on a MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2012), macOS Mojave Version 10.14.4. Since I updated Affinity Photo to version 1.7 it's barely unusable. It's very slow. After each action I have to wait a few seconds until I can continue my work. Saving a document (app. 150MB) takes several minutes (previously it took a few seconds at most). What can I do?
  5. Hi guys ! :) I am a IT tech from a State compagny in Quebec city,Canada. Some of our customers recetly bought Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo and we have to check it with some approval rules that our Ministery set. One of these rules are that we have to hide any updates messages that the software pop. We dont want our custumers to update any software when they want it, because they have some restrict permissions on the computer. Is there a way to hide the pop up message that I put in attach files ? Thanks alot and sorry for my bad english ;)

  7. Hi, I updated affinity photo (1.7), and since then each time I try to create a panorama I noticed some glitches in my pictures (Part of the picture are not aligned correctly...). Am'I the only one to notice this problem? Christophe
  8. Congrats on 1.7! For the next update it would be great if you could detect custom keyboard shortcut keys and use that instead of reverting to the default.
  9. Updating wiped out my custom keyboard shortcuts :-(
  10. Hi... when I go to update I get the message that the update isnt available to my AppleID or the original was refunded or cancelled... I havent changed appleID since it was installed and as far as I understand it was never refunded or cancelled... Any ideas?
  11. I haven't gotten an update email for Photo or Designer. But the apple app store says to do it. But when I try to update either program, I agree to the new conditions, but then get "We have a problem." Can I update a different way?
  12. I don't know if it's okay to post this here, but we don't seem to have an "off-topic" forum, so here it is. The changes in AP from ver 1.6.5 to 1.7.0 are pretty significant, warranting a long post at the beginning of this thread to explain the changes. We even have a different icon, something that's stayed the same since ver 1. And yet it's not ver 2, it's ver 1.7.0. Version numbers is a topic that's always mystified me; that is, how changes to the version number relate to changes in the software. I've researched this and found absolutely nothing concrete; it seems to be totally arbitrary. So what sort of changes would have had to take place to justify calling the new AP ver 2?
  13. Hi, I purchased AffinityPhoto via Appstore. So I don't have a product-key to update or re-install my product. I am going trough the procedure with Apple for the second time now and I will document it here. Hopefully it will safe other peoples time! More to come when the process & documentation is finished.....

  15. Hi, thanks for the update! I bought Affinity Designer for Mac OS through the Appstore. I can't find the product key on Apple's invoice. Did I download the update from store.serif and am now asked for the key? UPDATE: SOLVED! I downloaded the update from the App Store and didn't need a key anymore.
  16. I can't find a way to ugrade to Designer and Photo for Windows.

  21. Im getting into some sticky mud here. I'm the technincal administrator of an architectural office in Norway. I am advocating for the use of affinity products instead of Adobe after using your apps privately and finding it a positive experience. So we are trying to evaluate using Affinity Publisher at our office and everybody is trying it out, but today it did not want to open, saying a usual "the beta is too old, download the new one...". I downloaded the newest beta but upon running it says "Setup Failed"... I then repooted, ran as admin but nothing works. Now I wish to get rid of the program on our system but it cant uninstall saying "Another program is being installed"... I now have everybody else who use Affinity at our office staring down my neck asking me how to solve this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I feel as if im well into a deadend here... I have attached the failed setup log files. Setup.log SetupUI.log
  22. Hello, For a long time no update on Affinity Photo Desktop (Mac) Is this app died???? Let me know to choose another solution....
  23. New problem in the latest build 1.7.0.283, OS X 10.13.6. If you make a change to an external picture that is already linked in the document, it sometimes (not always) will garner an invalid file type as APUB notifies you that a change was made to the external file. However, the change is actually made in the document. See attached screen shots.
  24. I'm on Windows 10. After installation of the .284 update my system was rebooted without warning ! Which is not the usual procedure for software installation:/updates.
  25. Hi I seriously need help, UI is in Low Res/ Blurry I have been trying posting this problem before but with no answer and now I am really dependant of this software, already tried to uninstall and install, update but no solution. It's for the Publisher Beta but I guess one fix covers all. 1.7 on OSX Please Help.
