Affinity Photo Places Random Pixels on photograph After Merge

Recommended Posts

When I merge layers, Photo places random pixels on the photo being edited.  I sometimes see the same weird behavior when flattening all layers.  I often see one pixel, but sometimes see a row of pixels.

This behavior occurs in all current product versions and betas.


I have attached a project file with history included.  I have circled the pixel that was added.

If you undo the merge action, you can see the pixel goes away.


I suppose it's possible that opening my project on a different computer may result in the pixel(s) being placed in a different location, or not at all.


I will allow you to access my computer remotely if this would help recreate the bug.

Hi nmccamy,

Thanks for the files, I've reproduced the problem (although not able to reproduce on a new document). If you convert your document to 16bit you should be able to Merge it without a problem.

I've passed it onto development to investigate and fix.

Thanks again :)
