Affinity Photo 2 no longer opens at all on Mac desktop

Recommended Posts

Did holding CTRL and opening bring up any menus to reset various parts of the app?

Which version of macOS is running on your system, latest?

Have you tried fully removing the app from the Applications Folder to the Bin. Restarting the system and then downloading from your account a fresh version to install?

Yes, the menu to reset opened up w 3 first boxes checked by default--i just hit clear.

I'm On Big Sur Version 11.7.2

So to deinstall AFPhoto, all I have to do is put app in the trash? (Then restart and reinstall from account online) I'll try that.

Oi, it just randomly started up again with my fourth attempt of control button/start and clear. I have a feeling AFPhoto2 will stop responding again later today since its been doing wonky things the past few days with my bigger 350-450MB files. When it does, I'll try trashing app, restarting computer and reinstalling app. Thanks

If you store the files on a networked drive or in a cloud service then what could be happening is that Photo is trying to locate all the "recent" files. Try clearing that and turn off Re-open files. This is a Clear User Data choice and a Preferences (Photo General) option.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.
