Black/random Boxes appears after saving


Recommended Posts


I've been having this issue recently and i'm not sure how to fix it.

While i'm in the program, everything looks fine (as shown in attachment 1)


but when I save I get black boxes on the images (attachment 2).


I've tried changing the resolution/canvas sizes. But because i'm not sure of what's causes the issue, i'm not sure of how to solve it.

I'm working with a PSD that I saved as an afphoto file after editing the mockup file to my liking.

Affinity Photo 1.8.5. 703 on Windows 10


This really hinders me as a big part of my job is to present my designs to clients. Anyone know how to fix this?

Hey limoos, welcome to the Affinity Forums.

There is potentially some objects in the PSD that you're opening in Affinity that we do not understand. I think it's best if you can upload a copy of the PSD and the .afphoto file to this private Dropbox folder so we can investigate further.

Got the files—thanks.

It looks like the Perspective Filter is causing this. The only way I can currently see to work around this is to rasterise the objects or merge the entire doc. 

The export and print should be fine as it's just a rendering issue in the app itself. I think this needs looking at so I will pass it over.
