Affinity Photo Customer Beta - 1.6.0.83

Recommended Posts

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 a 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.

Did not know where to write, I'll write here.
1. In Windows Progress bar is almost invisible.
"He's very thin."
- The color is very faded. Merge, can not see how much passed and how much is left. it is necessary to peer.
2. If several tabs are open, it is difficult to see the active tab (especially in the light interface.). The colors are very similar in tone.
Even for a person with 100% eyesight, this makes work difficult.
There are also inaccuracies in the translation into Russian, but I will write about them later, as the time will appear.

1. Are you using Windows 7?

2. This has been improved in this beta cycle. Previously there was no border around the Panels, however now we have added a border to help differentiate them.

Yes.
To clarify what I'm talking about, I added screenshots. I tried to show places for those who see bad people are invisible. And for those who see well, too, are poorly visible.

The progress bar is a known issue using Windows 7. I'll get it bumped with development. Regarding the tabs I initially thought you meant the Panels. The panels were improved but the document tabs haven't changed. I'll get this passed on!

 

Thanks :)

When opening dng file, I have assistant set to "Lens Corrections:  take no action" yet Lens Correction is on. The same does not happen with Noise Correction.

Hi TEcHNOpls

 

Are you referring to the Lens correction in the Lens panel in Develop? This is not the same as the auto lens correction and is always enabled for manual adjustment but sits at 0 by default so it does not change anything unless you change it

Copy/Cut

It is a pity that the problem with cut/paste and the positioning in the upper left-hand side and not in cutted position has still not been included in new beta.
That would be a knock out criterion for a paid update for me

I posted this Affinity Photo Customer Beta - 1.6.0.76

Also look Thread Copy/Cut

 

 

This is a known issue that is with development to be fixed!

Looks like this beta is working more stable now. Great :-)
I did not work too long with it to say if it is also faster than the previous versions, but on some parts it looks as if there is performance increase noticable.

However, I noticed some non-reproducible issues using the gradient tool.
1) 2x application crash

2) 1x Jumps to "mother" layer above during working on the mask

3) Really slows down the machine, sometimes waiting for 30 sec or more before it comes back, No clue what it is doing in the background, all processors are doing nothing and no services are active in the background. (This I also notices many time during high pass filters)

 


General remarks:
 

1)
Why takes saving to a affinity file so long? Compared to export to a PSD, this one is twice to 3 times faster...?! (Yes I know I loose detailed info about filter adjustment settings when saving to PSD, but I guess this mus be converted which also should take time. For Affinity you could direct save it w/o conversion time)

We believe this is fixed in build #85
