[Fixed] Memory Leak when opening a .psd file

Recommended Posts

I am hitting over 6GB process size trying to open a specific .psd file.




Here is a link to the exact file I am trying to open. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/4243230/AffinityWinBetaMeta/WindowsControls_DarkTheme.psd


and a video of the error https://youtu.be/Zwg0cNKtOU8


Let me know if a .dump file for the process will be helpful.


Thanks for all the hard work. Keep being awesome.

Hi chrisg32


This is a very large file in terms of content (rather than file size) and Photoshop also spikes the memory when opening it too. However it does open it far quicker so I shall get it passed on to the development team to see if we can improve the performance here

Hi there,

I have also been trying to open up that UWP control file but it always maxes out on resources.

My laptop is a i7 with 16gb of ram but it maxes out everything and it barley opens the file.


You are right about photoshop spiking in memory when opening this file but it never gets past 9gb and affinity hangs on max ram (16gb).


Anyway thanks for bringing your awesome tool to windows and I will for sure buy it when it's out.
