Photo: exported/flattened result different from original

Recommended Posts

I bought "Affinity Photo" recently and I was playing with it and found this problem that is annoying.

I really expect to receive, as my final image, exactly what I'm seeing on my screen while I'm editing, but this is not the case... how can I create something if when I flatten and export the result is totally different?

Hi FernandoRosa,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

You have to compare both images at 100% zoom (1:1). Affinity renders live filters/effects dynamically (to speed up the application) which means their appearance changes slightly depending on the zoom level you are seeing them. To get accurate previews of what will be exported set the zoom level to 100%.

Hi FernandoRosa,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

You have to compare both images at 100% zoom (1:1). Affinity renders live filters/effects dynamically (to speed up the application's responsiveness) which means their appearance changes slightly depending on the zoom level you are seeing them. To get accurate previews of what will be exported set the zoom level to 100%.

 

Well, you are right... it's sad that the "fit to screen" version looks better than the real thing in "1:1". 

 

Thank you, I'll take this in account next time.

Maybe we can put this in a feature request? :) Some type of performance override to give us  a wysiwyg view? Or a warning that we are seeing a less than optimal rendering?
