I use Affinity Photo (and Designer) for illustrating an app for Android and iOS. My pictures are 2730 x 1536 px at 300 dpi. Not very big. Sometimes the layers are, not many, but quite a few. I try to keep the number down by merging as soon as it is OK to do so. I always backup by having *.afdesign / *.afphoto and *.psd files of the same document. Just to be safe. Before Affinity I used Photoshop CC and never had any crash. Yesterday Affinity Photo crashed on me several times. I sent the reports to Serif explaining what I was doing. As I see it, the crashes came just randomly, not that I was doing the same thing all the times the crash happend. I am on a little old computer running Win10 home 64/bit, having Intel Core i5 3450 @ 3.10GHz, quad core, 16384 MBytes RAM and Intel HD Graphics. Never had any problems with that until now. I am suspicious about my specs on the integrated graphics card / processor. Can it be the cause of the crashes, maybe? I noticed the behaviour of Affinity Photo on the blending mode "Multiply" going dim, like semi-transparent hazy looking instead the normal behaviour. That is maybe a signal of something going wrong in the graphics thing inside my machine. I restarted it twice. All problems were gone after the restart, until next crash... How demanding and relying on the graphics processor is Affinity Photo? Is it possible that my soon 6 years old computer lacks what it takes to run properly?
JennyBallif posted a topic in Affinity on Desktop Questions (Mac and Windows)I'm struggling to find beginner tutorials that aren't too much too fast (1 hour of drawing condensed into 3 minutes) or too little (explains basic features but no drawing tutorial). I sketched out several figures and now I want to put down vector based lines and erase my pencil marks. Here's my problem: (true novice here, bear with me) I put in my first line and adjusted it just fine, but now when I try to put in another line, it automatically connects it to my first line and that messes them both up. I cannot figure out how to draw another line without it automatically linking to my first line. Help, please? Any advice or links to tutorials would be very welcome. I've been reading through the menu in "Affinity Designer Help," but this is my very first time trying out a drawing tablet and I'm feeling handicapped by my lack of previous exposure and knowledge. Almost ready to give up and go back to paper, except.... this program looks SO INCREDIBLE. Please help. I need to figure out how to make this work!!
