Recommended Posts

Status: GM Seed

Purpose: Features, Improvements, Fixes

Requirements: Purchased Affinity Photo

Mac App Store: Submitted

Download ZIP: Download

Auto-update: Available

 

Hello,

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the final build of Affinity Photo 1.8.3 for macOS.

If this is your first time using a customer beta of an Affinity app, it’s worth noting that the beta will install as a separate app - alongside your store version. They will not interfere with each other at all and you can continue to use the store version for critical work without worry.

This beta is an incremental update to the 1.8.2 version recently released to all customers (though it installs parallel to the release, as described above). We recommend that you use this beta in preference to the store version if you are affected by any of the issues listed below.

Affinity Photo Team  :ph34r:

 

We are moving to release candidate stage early for 1.8.3, due to the discovery of a bug which prevents auto save from working in most circumstances. This bug can cause significant loss of work for users and is classed as extremely high priority. Once 1.8.3 is released, we will be back with 1.8.4 betas relatively quickly.

 

Changes This Build

 

- Fixed issue whereby layers clipped at to embedded document would not get clipped.
- Alignment tweaks.
- Further Boolean op tweaks.
- Fixed misidentification of Sigma 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary when mounted on a Canon camera.

Changes Since 1.8.2

 

- Fixed rendering issue with small radius filter effects.
- PDF export fixes.
- New document from clipboard improvements.
- Defringe filter improvements.
- Boolean op tweaks from Designer.
- Assorted small crash fixes.
- Assorted small performance improvements.

- Fix for autosave not working on anything but new documents.
- Fixed cropped result when creating a selection from a mask.

- Fix issues with live filters making layers disappear.
- Fix embedded documents not rendering at specific zoom levels.
- Try to import PSDs with non-standard vector origination data.
- Small terminology fixes (Exif -> Metadata).
- Fixed sporadic crashes with procedural texture UI.
- Silenced PSD import warnings which don’t affect the import result.
- Fixed develop steppers for noise reduction.
- Assorted other small fixes.
