Hello Affinities! First, I have to say: I really enjoy using Affinity Photo for "finishing" my landscape photos. Thanks for such a great product. Yesterday, on my Windows 10 desktop computer, I updated to Affinity Photo 220.127.116.111. I opened a rather complex file and instantly noticed different rendering of the photo. I used an levels adjustment layer and a gaussian blur live filter in a group to create an orton effect. I reduced opacity and I put a masked on the group. While painting with a black brush on the white mask, a checkerboard pattern occured. I simplified that. A loaded a photo, created an empty pixel above put it in a group and masked the group. Paining the mask leads to the same effect. There seems to be an bug in masking a group or is this a rendering option I can disable in the preferences? Thanks and best regards, Jens
I use an older version of Photoshop on the PC. I want to buy something descent for Mac OSX (Gimp driving me crazy). Every paint program I try seems to be horrible at the simplest task of resizing a canvas larger so I can paint into or paste into the extra bitmap area. In Photoshop, if I resize a canvas to a larger size, it fills in the extra created area with the background color. In Affinity Photo it fills it in with that annoying checkerboard pattern that seems to indicate there is no bitmap there. As a result I can't paint, draw, or fill it with the paint bucket. I can seem to draw geometric shapes there though, which then create more layers, which I then have to merge down, which don't delete old layers, which means I have to manually delete the old layers. Augh! Really? There's got to be a better way. Does anybody know of a simple straight forward procedure for filling in that checkerboarded portion of an image? And maybe Affinity could do it the way Photoshop does it in an update! Thanks for any help.
