dragging an image into a document from stock-unsplash crashes all 3 programs....both release and the Beta

Hi Paul,
This is something we're aware of and with development to fix to prevent the crash. We believe it has been introduced by an external change from Unsplash on Tuesday, as it was working fine prior to that.

Can't we just get rid of Unsplash?????????

You just have to ignore it. To attach various stock libraries through the user would be nice, but a lot of work since every stock library is using different APIs I guess.

So having an interface for third-party developers would be nice. This would lift some pressure off Serif, because niche functions could be implemented without eating up development time for the Affinity "core".
