Multiple Crashes


Recommended Posts



I'm starting to use now Photo v2 for my day to day work (web graphics) and I'm experiencing multiple crashes (2- 4 times) for very simple workflows.


I work on files less than 2,000 pixels size and do some Copy and Paste, clone/ impaint retouch and add some Text (Frame).

I then add maybe a  Levels Adjustment Layer and finally Group some layers to stay organized. Pretty much that's what I do in Photo.

v1 was very stable but now I'm getting these crashes with the new version.


I'm working in a Late 2015, 21.5-inch iMac . 2.8 Ghz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 with 8 GB of Ram

Graphics: Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200 1536 MB

MacOS Monterrey v 12.6.1


Hope this helps,




Fernando Velarde

Hi @velarde,

If your still having trouble with Affinity, please go into Preferences but clicking on the Affinity Photo menu in the top left corner and on the Performance section disable Metal Compute at the bottom, if its enabled, close Preferences and restart Affinity.  Now try your normal workflow and see if there's any improvements.
