Ive noticed that when I try to export JPEG or Tiff files the export dialog shows as affinity file not JPEG or Tiff.  The resulting export is unaffected and the file format is either a JPEG or a Tiff just the dialog is incorrect under save as type while exporting.

This is caused by a Windows setting that hides or shows file extensions - that is turned on/off somewhere in Windows. When Windows is configured to show file extensions, it will look like this:

I happily forgot all about where this setting can be changed. 😕

  • Not an Affinity user og forum user anymore. The software continued to disappoint and not deliver.

The setting you are referring to in windows ten is under view on the top toolbar, the export dialog usually looks like this picture Ive attached regardless of the hide file extensions being enabled or not, and is only showing this way on jpeg and tiff export its a minor thing doesn't affect much other than I thought I accidentally hit save as and not export lol. Just thought Id post since I noticed it on export several times.

Hi Mark, sorry to trouble you with this issue again, but today I dowloaded the latest versions of the Affinity Photo for Windows as well as the Beta version. The Affinity Photo download took about 4 minutes, while the Beta download lasted more than an hour. Surely there is someting wrong with the beta download.

The retail versions are served from cloudfront.net, which is a large provider of web-caching services and which has (I believe) server locations around the world which can be used to speed up the delivery. The beta versions are served from an Amazon AWS server, with one location on the East Coast, I believe. Additionally, cloudfront may provide a faster connection to the network.

Both the server location and the server network speed would impact the download speed, and that probably explains the difference you see. Not something "wrong" with the download.

They are called "Layer effects", aren't they?

Hi Walt, thanks for the explanation. A quicker download of the beta would anyway be appreciated.

You're welcome.

Only someone from Serif would be able to comment on the rationale and tradeoffs between using one service or the other for the betas.
