Recommended Posts

  • Moderators

We are pleased to announce an update for the Windows release of Affinity Photo, version 1.10.5

The changes in Affinity Photo for Windows 1.10.5 (made since the last release Affinity Photo for Windows 1.10.4) are as follows:

Fixes & Improvements:

  • Updated the RAW import Library (updated libraw to 202110).
  • Fixed registration failure (will now use the browser to complete registration, rather than attempt it in-app)
  • Fixed possible rendering issues with Raster elements
  • Fixed background layer being blurred when re-opening an afphoto file
  • Fixed artefacts on export of documents with a Live Radial Blur
  • Fixed Overlay Paint and Erase Tools in Develop Persona not painting correctly at small brush sizes
  • Fixed Overlay Paint Brush starting at the edge of canvas
  • Fixed corrupt images when entering Photoshop plugins, with hardware acceleration enabled
  • 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.

The last real update has been a long time and the only updates made are fixes. When will we get a real update on Affinity Designer, Photo and Publish?

I really don't understand the comment above.  What is wrong with 'fixes'?  I personally appreciate the fact that the developers are striving to provide a product with the fewest amount of bugs possible before moving on to another 'update/upgrade' that will inevitably introduce new issues.

I have to agree, releases that only have fixes are still great. Nobody likes bugs and it's stupid to have to wait for major releases to stuff to be fixed, so well done Affinity!

One crit though. How hard would it be to add a link to this thread to the download page (or even the new version notification in the app)? I mean, really, come on! We all want to know what features or fixes are new and if it's an update we need to install asap or maybe one that can wait a bit. This is the only software I know of that tries to hide what's new. There really is no excuse, it is literally just one link you have to provide. Please just take five minutes to fix that, it's the easiest improvement you can make to your software suite.

But enough ranting, thanks for the update guys!

Last major update which is 1.10 was released last summer, so approximately only 8 months ago.
Usual release cycle for major update is every 1 year and half or so.
