Affinity Photo and Designer 1.6 have launched!

Recommended Posts

Downloaded the update from the Mac App Store and now every time I click on Affinity Photo - Preferences it crashes

 

Updated Mac to 10.13.1 Affinity Photo still crashes when selecting Preferences.

Deleted AP 1.6.6 Beta, made no difference, still crashing.

 

It would seem pressing Control on start up allows you to reset your preferences...

First off, congratulations to the new release and many thanks for the additional bonus content. I also had a glimpse at the new web pages and the sample files. Very promising.

 

Unfortunately I can confirm Kiarian's report. The 'QuickStart_Guide.pdf' doesn't extract.

 

I also had problems to extract all files from the Tom Chalky archives. Some of them worked well, others gave an error message.

Awesome! Great to have updates!

 

And thanks for the free content. However, I wanted to note that the "tom-chalky-handcrafted-fonts-textures" download is needlessly huge in file size - most of the PNGs in it are not compressed at all. I recommend anyone who downloads it to run the PNGs through ImageOptim (on Mac) or PNGGauntlet (on windows). Many come in at around 66MB, but when I ran them all through ImageOptim, most compressed down to around 100KB. ImageOptim reports: "Saved 3.89 GB out of 4.07 GB. 95.5% overall (up to 99.9% per file)", which is pretty crazy :)

 

To Serif: Running ImageOptim on those files and re-zipping the download would probably help to save a little download bandwidth and a lot of disk space for users!

Same here: MAC sierra. Empty welcome screen on designer and a AD link in the photo welcome screen.

This is really a BUG I guess. Hope you can help us out here.

Love the way you develop by the way! Congrats.

That is a problem: i click download and just nothing happens. May be i need to wait. I am eager to install.

 

When you click the Download button it should launch a browser window. Are you sure you don't have a firewall/antivirus blocking the connection/app or a setting in Internet Explorer/Microsoft Edge preventing the browser from being launched?

It will not load on my computer.  It will not copy the new files. It does not recognize me as administrator and even when run as administrator.  It removed my previous version and now I am without the program which I need.  Please fix this SAP. I need at least my old version so I can continue my work.  This is holding me up. I need it IMMEDIATELY. alc Fixed by restarting computer.

I didn't get any error messages when I extracted the contents of the Tom Chalky archive. You might want to check that your download isn't corrupt.

I was a little surprised to find that the above archive (and the two APh freebies that I've downloaded so far) don't have digital signatures.

Just installed on PC - so far so good. Precisely today I have to send some labels to print, so I hope the improvements in pdf exporting will do good job :) Thank you for solid update!

It doesn't open with 7-zip, but I was able to open it using Windows Explorer.

Thanks, Alfred.

Ah, I thought, my purchases are kept track of and reflected in Myaccount keeping a record of what I'm entitled to.

 

Thanks, FloydWorx.

Ah, I thought you were suggesting that the download links should be made available generally to everyone who is logged in, rather than being targeted at specific users.

Many thanks for the update, and the free content. Very happy with this.

Just to report, an error message when trying to unzip the 'frankentoon-texturizerpro-brushes' file. I can drag everything to where I want it, apart from the 'QuickStart_Guide.pdf'. I'm getting the error:
1 Headers Error : QuickStart_Guide.pdf

Even when I try to just drag the file to my desktop.
 

Sorry, Until we work out what is wrong, please use this copy instead

QuickStart_Guide.pdf
