We are pleased to announce an update for the Windows release of Affinity Photo, version 1.10.1

The changes in Affinity Photo for Windows 1.10.1 (made since the last release Affinity Photo for Windows 1.10.0) are as follows:

Fixes & Improvements:

  • Converting text with emojis, underlined text, or text with other attributes to curves would cause the app to crash. 
  • Application failed to launch due to downloaded My Account content that contains missing fonts. 
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when closing the application. 
  • Trials have been reset, so anyone who has tried the 10 day trail before can start a new trial.
  • Fixed the "Failed to save" error in documents containing duplicated picture frames.
  • Unsplash removed from the stock panel
  • Help & localisation improvements.

The improvements in 1.10 are listed in some detail in this 1.10.0 Photo Windows update announcement
 

UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (Free for existing customers)

The software version can be seen on the splash screen and the About dialog (in Help > About Affinity Photo).

If you’ve purchased from the Affinity Store— each time you start the Affinity Store software it will check for updates and offer any available update. The latest update will install over the top of any earlier version, with no need to uninstall. You can download the latest installer by logging into the affinity store here and find the order in your account and use the "Download" button in there. Alternatively, this new release (and previous versions of Affinity Photo for Windows) can be downloaded from this link. (that installer is NOT for Windows Store purchases and needs a product key).

If you’ve purchased from the Microsoft Store— Microsoft Store updates are done automatically by the operating system (each time you start the application). If this does not happen for you, open the Windows Store app and click the three dots in the top right corner of the app and then go to Downloads and Updates. Click Get Updates. This should hopefully force the update to show.

@nicoppc The fix list above is a complete list of the changes, so in this case no. However we have found that crashes on GPU are normally caused by issues out of our control normally genuine graphics driver issues or 3rd party apps interfering. If you do not have any of these applications or services installed, we suggest users make threads in the questions forum to help you find the cause.

Shame about the Unsplash removal, but I totally understand why. It makes you wonder if Pexels and Pixabay might do the same. There's also a possibility for M&A in the photo sharing world.

A thought. Unsplash wants donations of photos from photographers (as do Pexels and Pixabay). What if there was a way for Affinity users to easily submit images to them? If their API could handle it, then good. But if not, perhaps even a link would help. Or maybe Serif could even pre-emptively build value (including for Affinity users) with some half-way interface. This could be a significant lever in negotiations.

Regarding this, I notice through my InAffinity channel that many of my users are older. Like me, there's a pattern of folks retiring and getting deeper into photography (just look at the demographic of the average photographic club). This might indicate a greater average willingness to freely share images and less need to make money, as these are retirees who have made their mark and hav sufficient pension at least to indulge in camera kit. This would be a splendid source for the photo sharing sites, and making it seamlessly easier to contribute would be of great value to them.

Sobre todo gracias, agradezco mucho vuestro trabajo, no entraré en polémicas, hace 3 años que estoy usando affinity photo y al igual que otros software mucho más grandes tenéis fallos. Cosa que muchos an olvidado,nadie es perfecto, lo importante es como solucionar los problemas y vosotros de momento siempre terminais solucionando el problema. 

En mi caso pasando el rendimiento a habido un gran avance, ahora va más fluido. 

Saludos.

Download links opened through app notification lead to error.

Next time this happens please can you attach a screenshot. I wonder if it's an https security error

It certainly is! It’s made a big dent in the feature, especially since I don’t/won’t use Pexels.

I wonder if any of the sites mentioned in this thread could be added:

Try http instead of https I think the security certificate needs addressing

Alternatively, use this rather more direct link:

You seem to have an extension "Automatic HTTPS" active. Do you still have problems if you disable it?

Thanks Walt that was the problem

 

Automatic HTTPS was on 

There are 3 option 

On / Off

Switch to HTTPS only on websites likely to support HTTPS

Always switch from HTTP to HTTPS (connection errors might occur more often)

Mine was On 
And
Switch to HTTPS only on websites likely to support HTTPS
Tried 
Always switch from HTTP to HTTPS (connection errors might occur more often)
Still failed
Turned Off
Worked

To help others who are using Microsoft Edge

Goto

Automatically switch to more secure connections with Automatic HTTPS On / Off

Just a note: I went to stokpic.com and a friendly little popup-looking thing offered to do a free virus scan for me. How nice. How worrisome. I clicked away.

Thanks for the update, its not crashed on me and seems to run OK other than, its much slower than 1.9.2 or the original 1.10.0.

I see others have raised this as an issue.

Something must be wrong because nothing has changed from my point of view re-PC setting etc etc, just the update giving this slow issue now.

It seems to be something to do with rendering as it is far more pixilated for far longer, the noise reduction takes what seems like an age now to render also other aspects are much slower. It really is very noticeable.
