We are pleased to announce an update for the Windows release of Affinity Photo, version 1.10.4 (replacing 1.10.3)

(Note: 1.10.2 was an iPad only release)
The changes in Affinity Photo for Windows 1.10.4 (made since the last release Affinity Photo for Windows 1.10.1) are as follows:

Fixes & Improvements:

  • Fixed Refine Selection as New Layer with Mask preventing rendering of Artboards
  • Fixed Brush Hardness changing when swapping tools
  • Fixed Live Filters with Radius or Distance spuriously changing the Azimuth anticlockwise
  • Fixed Toggling 'Quick Mask' not updating until you toggle the mask off and on again
  • Fixed 'Overlay Paint' and 'Overlay Erase' tools in Develop Persona not painting with correct spacing
  • Fixed document with 'Save History' failing to save after promoting a Group to a Layer
  • Fixed vector import potentially importing with the wrong document size
  • Fixed 16-bit 'Saturation blend mode' displaying white pixels
  • Fixed crash painting on empty pattern layer
  • Fixed 'Levels' > 'Output black and white' using the same values when changing channels
  • Fixed files losing quality after a merge or export
  • Fixed potential crash opening an EXR document
  • Fixed crash opening multiple FITS files at once
  • Fixed DNG files not being displayed in Develop Persona with Hardware Acceleration enabled
  • Fixed Astrophotography to cope with Unicode file paths
  • Fixed PSD import of Linear Burn blend mode being imported as Multiply
  • Fixed some occasionally fonts failing to be recognised at startup
  • Fixed Borderless printing having a border
  • Improved 'Uninstall Pack' flow to auto-select the pack
  • Fixed 'Preset Manager' > 'Shape Presets' being unable to click
  • Fixed hang on My Account page
  • Fixed 'Defringe' > 'Also remove complementary colour'
  • Fixed crash when closing the application
  • Fixed potential crash on launch when a sync'd asset references an unavailable font
  • Fixed document pixel resolution being stored in the wrong format within XMP metadata (breaks later parsing of the same data; hides the values from the metadata panel's 'Detail' view)
  • Increased maximum defringe radius
  • Fixed 'Convert to Curves' crash with underlined text, emoji etc.
  • Fixed Astrophotography Stack failing on some DNG's with no warning
  • Improved Astrophotography 'Make Align Layers By Stars' to work for layers in transformed groups
  • Screen and UI corruption (in 1.10.3) on some desktops.
  • App hanging on shutdown due to font cache problem.
  • Help & localisation improvements.

The improvements in 1.10 since 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.

Affinity is still unusable using GPU. Previous version could be used a few minutes, new one only a few seconds. There are some graphics glitches:

- using NVidia RTX 2080. some "squares" are not updates. See Screenshot (blur to hide the person but not the issue).

- using integrated Intel UHD: Sometimes displayed got frozen and then Affinity crahes.

Everything (Affinity, drivers, Windows..) are up-to-date.

In the new version, when the hardware acceleration is turned on, the software still crashes when copying and pasting the board picture to the software, and there is no response when creating a new document.Everything (Affinity, drivers, Windows..) are up-to-date.Turn off hardware acceleration, there is no problem with the current use

The 1.10.3 desktop release builds have now been replaced with 1.10.4 release builds to fix a few issues that have come to light shortly after release. This announcement post has been repurposed to include these minor changes. On the Affinity Store 1.10.4 should be available now (from your account and the link in each announcement, and on autoupdate very soon). 1.10.4 builds will be rolling out on the Mac App Store and Microsoft store over the next 24-48 hours as normal.

@nicoppc

If you are still experiencing this problem once you are updated to 1.10.4 can you please make a new thread in the bugs section of the forums.

Hi!

 

The new version (1.10.4) looks more stable on my system. It did not crash in one hour usasge with GPU acceleration enabeld. (which is a record).

However, using editing big photos (13000 x 6000, 32bit), the software is slow and unresponsiv (100% ussage on one core, sometime "not responding). However, it did not crash.

 

System:

  • i7 10th generation 8 core
  • 64 GB RAM
  • RTX 2080 with 8Gb dedicaded VRAM
  • latest Windows 10 and drivers all up to date

 

PS: PS CS6 on a MBP 2012, i7, 16Gb RAM feels faster.

Keep going :)

Update. It crashed! I just zoom in using ctrl + and boom.

Update2: Using Ctrl+S to save and then quit, Affinity pretend the file is not saved (even if it is).

I had a similar problem with photos. But I edited them in Publisher in Photo Persona.

How works 1.10.4 can say thought 2 weeks.
