Lagging and crashing on Win 10 Home

Recommended Posts

I bought Affinity Photo yesterday because I was happy with beta.

I work on ASUS - Win 10 Home edition, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950, Intel i5 2.20 Ghz, 8GB RAM + Wacom Intuos.

 

After a few hours of work in Photo Persona on cutting and arranging SIMPLE Greyscale images it started lagging. Today it crashes on Open File.

There is virtually no way I can use it at the moment. Please help.

 I have problems launching Affinity photo on windows 10 pro 64. It hangs or refuses to launch......I had high hopes for this app, frustrating and I am very disappointed... any solutions? Bug fixes, updates?

Hi.

I reinstalled Affinity.

I figured out crashing was caused by TIFF files exported from Affinity. Both Affinity and Photoshop Elements were crashing on Open File, when I chose a folder with Affinity TIFF exports. 

I am now exporting to PNG and both applications are stable.

Still Affinity lags terribly, when working on my files. These are Grayscale 16-bit files, about 1 - 2 MB each. 

The Task Manager in Win shows it uses about 60 - 70% of the CPU but the fan works like crazy in my Asus laptop all the time. Is it something to do with how it uses memory?

 

I hope this can be fixed somehow because generally the workflow in Affinity is great...

It sounds like the thumbnail provider that you have for TIFF is crashing when it attempts to generate the previews? Do you have a thumbnail provider installed?

I might have some sort of a thumbnail provider... I had problems with thumbnails on Win and was trying to fix it. I was a Mac user for years so I am quite new to Win 10. Could you please give me a hint how to find it in the system?
