Bug after applying Gaussian blur?

Recommended Posts


After exporting images to which a (partial) Gaussian blur is applied, the blurred part is showing a form of pixelation (see the example provided).

I'm using Affinity  Photo 1.9 on an Acer Win10 laptop and the effect is appearing on all of the pictures I've tried it on.


Any ideas on what might go wrong here?


Kind Regards,

Roel de Haan

Welcome to the Affinity forums @Roel de Haan!

Turn off Hardware Acceleration in Preferences >> Performance and export again to see if the output is better.
