Hi,

When I add a link to an Affinity Photo file the files Size increases unexpectedly. However, this behavior has been described in other threads and might be due to a different understanding about the meaning of "linking". BTW I prefer the classic interpretation of linking which hold back no copy at all within the file...

If I now use the same File multiple times the file size increases with every new instance. To me that is a bug because it would not make sense to hold back an individual copy for every instance of the same file. Probably my workflow is part of the Problem. I am ending up for a duplex A4 page with more than 3GB because I link 3x Affinity Photo Files each 3 times. The file contains RAW 24.5MP images developed by APhoto (~500MB per image) ... However, I came up with this workflow to utilize the full power of the great link between that applications to get maximum flexibility. I would really appreciate if instances of the same raw data would be allowed in AP. I got no bsp.File for you however, it should be easy to replicate the issue...

Thank you for your help!

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums, Detrusor.

This is addressed in 1.8 (only in available in beta right now). Until then, you can get smaller files by exporting to TIF or PNG format from Affinity Photo, and Linking to those exported files.

I'm curious, though, if you're willing to share, what's in the files that you need to link them in 3 times each.
