Affinity Photo Customer Beta - 1.6.0.76

60 posts in this topic

Click here to download the latest beta

 

Status: Customer Beta
Purpose: New features
Requirements: A valid product key, issued when Windows Affinity Photo version 1.5 was purchased.

This is the fourth beta of a substantial change to our codebase and as much as we have tried to ensure the quality of the code, 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 definitely worth noting that files created in Affinity 1.6 may not open in 1.5 so always make a copy of your important documents before opening them in 1.6 to ensure you do not accidentally overwrite them and are unable to open them in your 1.5 version.

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.

Thanks Mark!!! A lot of work done on this release. I do notice a lag on the History panel updating again, which isn't there on my Beta 75. Have both installed, so can check side-by-side. I have History open, and it takes around 2 seconds to update in Beta 76. As we did moons ago, close History in Studio, and all is well again.

Also, when using the Selection Brush on large images (24Mp and up) there is a noticeable lag when painting. Sometime the screen will  go black while the data is being processed. Again, also not there in Beta 75.

Is there a way to rotate the canvas using gestures on a tablet.

I am using the windows versions of Designer and Photo on a Wacom MobileStudio Pro 16 and rotating the canvas does not work with gestures.

Can you please advise on this.

Please let me know if you need any other information.

Sincerely.

The healing brush certainly feels faster in this build. Teh screen refresh seems a bit faster in general too.

Thank you for the Russian language! :-)

 

I hope it doesn't keep you so busy reporting translation errors that you don't have time to test the other fixes! devil2.gif

The interpreter did not give me the opportunity to understand your phrase. Will not it make it difficult for me to report inaccuracies in the translation? Or...?

Hi,

two issues:

1. Healing brush works slow, not as slow in .75 but not as fast as in 1.5.x

2. There may be a memmory leak somewhere, AP took a lot of memory and closing photos did not free the memory. I'm looking into it.

Let me try again.

 

I hope there are not so many errors in translation that you will not have enough time to check other corrections!

Дай мне попробовать снова.


Я надеюсь, что ошибок перевода не так много, что вы останетесь без достаточного количества времени, чтобы проверить другие исправления!

Hello,
thank you for new beta version.
The program opening time is still too long. The opening time of RAW (NEF) files is still very long.

Windows 10 Pro

With regards

1. The HSL layer settings affect the color of the inpainting brush.

2. If the image is cropped and then apply filter apply image, then it spontaneously scales.

3. The brush size settings from the keyboard are not synchronized with the brush settings from the panel.

4. https://youtu.be/DsaMoxPcGAg - The histogram in version 1.6 is not displayed in real time. In 1.5 everything is fine.
