Is it in the background, or is it just gone? The Help window is now a separate process (application) so if it crashes, it won't crash the main application.

It just flashes quickly, I just see a white window about a quarter of the screen size that pops up in the upper left corner and it's gone right away. But AP does not crash.

 

I think (it goes away so fast) that the title bar of the disappearing window says "C:\Windows\system32\Help.exe"

Yes, I get the same thing. I'll get this sorted in the morning and put another build out. For the time being you can load up the release version of Photo and use the help in there.

Thanks for the good work. Still some problems, loading a raw file takes still 15 seconds. Help function has stopped working.

Loading a RAW file still takes too much time, but JPG and afphoto files load much faster now.

Notice the big change in this release, when using a pixel based document, 100% view will map to 100% of physical pixels, rather than 100% of logical pixels (based on your Windows Display Scale).

 

This change is huge for me and much appreciated. For a lot of the things I do, it is critical to toggle to a 1:1 frequently. Thanks for this update!

A nice little collection of fixes, but I still don't get a clear view of the '+' in the text tool cursors at a display setting of 100%, and I still can't scrub the Fill Opacity in the Effects panel.

 

The help function works with me in the version 1.5.0.45. once in a while and then get an error code and not working at all in the version 1.5.1.47.

 

When I press the F1 key or choose 'Help...' from the Help menu, a small window flashes up briefly and then disappears.

I'm seeing a lot of performance improvements

selection, grow/shrink and flood fills

painting, brushes much more responsive

Haze removal, faster on a small file, need to test on a large landscape

 

A bit late for me to check other things, looking forward to re-doing my test file WFs.

 

Thank you, great work!

As reported under Beta .46, the problem is still there in .47.

 

Open a jpg file

  • Use a Level Filter
  • Unsharp Mask filter
  • And then a Denoise Filter. When using this filter the "Level Filter" layer was selected by mistake, so I couldn't make the Denoise filter work and I played a little with the slider and then noticed the selected layer. As soon as I click on the "Background" layer to select it, while the Denoise filter box is still open, AP crash with the error shown below.

Hi,

1. This is a second Beta release without "Beta" sign on it

2. When there is a beta release, click to "Download" button redirect me to the page where is the offer to buy Photo, instead to the forum to download it

3. When are you going to change the forum titles under the "Affinity Beta Support" from "Windows Beta" and "Mac Beta" into "Photo Beta" and "Designer Beta"?

4. After version 1.5.0.43 it should start with 1.5.1 and not with 1.5.1.43, I think?

Help does not work in 1. 5. 1. 47 windows.
Help only works one time in 1. 5. 0. 45 next time I ask for help close the program.

 

It's been already mentioned above. There should be a new fix soon:

Badly!

Auto lens correction completely destroys distorts the picture (all lenses)! 

Still does not recognize Tamron lenses in NEF (AF 70-300mm f/3.5-5.6 Di LD Macro 1:2 as Unknown Fd 48 5C 8E 30 3c DF 06). 

Nikon Adobe RGB in JPG still recognizes as sRGB!

I havent bought the affinity photo yet so i could test it up to RC2. I have a question for those of you who can check it and dev also. I remember when working on 100% zoom the image was clear and sharp, but when i zoom out it becomes blurry or jittery. I know it is a usual thing when you zoom out with some strange values like 63,43% or so. But every software has some zoom theshholds that will render nice and sharp view. I can zoom out in PS, Gimp and Krita and look at it like it was already resized, perfectly sharp image.

Unfortunately in Photo up to version 1.5.0.45 it did not rennder the image properly when i zoom out. I don;t remember now, probably the "print size" was the only zoom out which was ok, but i am not sure now.

 

I am talking mostly about drawing illustrations A4 size 300dpi dicuments. I dont know if working with photos has same effect

Czesc pgraficzny.

 

Dzieki za odpowiedz, Moja karta to GeForce GTX 765M, Nie pamiętam już jaką opcje mialem ustawioną, ale jeśli Bilinear jest opcją domyślną, to raczej własnie tą.

Hi pgraficzny

 

Thanks for the answer. My graphic card is GeForce GTX 765M. I can not recall anymore which setting i had, but if bilinear is default then i guess that was it.

Cześć,

domyślną opcją jest Najbliższy Sąsiad (Nearest Neighbour). Przy tym ustawieniu brak jest wygładzania co któryś stopień powiększenia. Podobnie jest w PS. Kluczowa jednak dla płynnego powiększania jest sprzętowa akceleracja graficzna karty/procesora graficznego.

Dzięki, w takim razie bede musial wyprobowac po zakupie. Czy sprzętowa akceleracja znajduje sie w ustawieniach Photo? czy chodzi o ustrawienia w karcie graficznej ?

Chodzi o możliwości karty - w moim przypadku programy, zarówno Affinity Photo jak i Photoshop, rozpoznają wsparcie sprzętowe i domyślnie korzystają z procesora graficznego. To można sprawdzić już na wersji Beta. Na poprzednich komputerach miałem słabe karty graficzne i np. w PS w preferencjach wydajności astawienia procesora graficznego miałem nieaktywne. W zał. zrzut z PS CS6 oraz Affinity Photo
