Affinity Photo Focus Merge retouch problem

Recommended Posts

I am also having difficulty with focus merge in Affinity Photo


It is loaded on my Dell Precision M3800 with Windows 10 Pro operating system.


The fault occurs whether I am using RAW files or jpeg; and whether I am using mouse or graphic tablet to manipulate.


Focus merge appears to work successfully until you wish to enter the touch up mode.  The merge process works as expected, and the merged file appears on screen and at the head of the source list. But if I try to do anything at all, the source list files disappear (though the merged file remains on the screen in Develop persona (if RAW files were used)). This means that retouch operations as described in the tutorial video “Focus Merge Retouching”  are impossible..


I have a video of the screen during this operation, it is loaded to my You Tube channel, but as a private video , so I need an email address to share it.

Advice would be appreciated.
