How to avoid RAM issues with Affinity Photo 1.9.2 ?

Recommended Posts


since I updated my Affinity Photo to version 1.9.2 I'm experiencing RAM issues - it just fills the RAM and then it's almost impossible to work.
I'm using notebook with 8GB of RAM and I never experienced any issues with Affinity programs until now.
I was able to have many applications including some games, video editing opened at the same time and Affinity programs were still working fine. But now with Affinity Photo 1.9.2 even if I close all other apps I'm struggling to work.

I tried to uninstall and install older 1.8.5 version but then I cannot open files because last few hours I created a lot of new files using 1.9.2 which I need to continue working with.

So please suggest what should I do (are there some new features in 1.9.2 I could turn off) ?

Btw, upgrading RAM is not possible and IMO not needed since older versions were running without issues.

Hi @HrvojeL,

Sorry to hear you're having trouble!

It's not entirely unexpected for Affinity applications to use this much RAM, depending on the document in question.

Could you please provide a copy of your .aphoto file here for me, as well as a screenshot of your settings under Edit > Preferences > Performance?

Should you require a private upload link for your file, please let me know!

Many thanks in advance :)
