Snapshot feature unuseable

Recommended Posts

I tried to use the snapshot feature to perform two different croppings on a picture. It works well before I save and reload the picture as afphoto-file. After reloading and switching to a snapshot the picture gets very dark (see attachments). This dramatic colour change makes the feature unuseable.

It seems that some action is performed on the picture when selecting a snapshot because when closing the picture just after selecting a snapshot it Affinity Photo asks whether the changes shall be saved.

Hi Stuhrer, are you by any chance editing in 32-bit? You can check by selecting the Hand Tool and looking at the context toolbar entry (it should list the document pixel format and resolution). In fact, if you move between snapshots, just keep an eye on that entry and see if it changes.

I can reproduce this if I convert between 32-bit and either 16-bit or 8-bit and create snapshots, then toggle between the snapshots. Have you inadvertently changed the colour format between snapshots?
