Click here to download the latest beta

Status: Public Beta
Purpose: Stability
Requirements: None

As this is a beta release, it is considered to be not suitable for production use. This means that you should not attempt to use it for commercial purposes or for any other activity that you may be adversely affected by the application failing. In addition it is worth noting that files created in Affinity Photo 1.5 cannot be opened in Affinity Photo 1.4, which means that they cannot be opened in the latest Mac App Store version of Affinity Photo, and instead you will need the latest macOS 1.5 beta.

We hope you enjoy the latest build, and as always, if you've got any problems, please don't hesitate to post here and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. Thanks once again for your continued feedback.

If you have a general question about the software, please head over to the Questions Forum, or if you have any suggestions, please head over to the Feature Requests forum.

Nice work guys!

I haven't fully tested it yet, but at first glance, it seems is performing better!

 

I get this crash consistently:

Drag and dropping a CR2 into Affinity throws an exception. This is reproducable.

Trying to load a CR2 in any possible way throws an exception. This is reproducible.

 

I can not load any file, be it CR2, JPG, BMP... It throws an exception regardless of the way i do it.

Affinity also throws an exception when i create an empty project.

I already checked my video card driver, it seems to be up to date.

The beta worked up until now.

Thanks for this release guys, running faster now. I see `auto lens correction` listed but I can only find a manual correction in Develop. Is Affinity able to read the exif data and auto correct for lens profiles or does it rely on doing a manual correction and saving that as a preset please?.

cheers

Steve
