[Affinity Photo] Performnce and stability problems

Recommended Posts

I also find Affinity Photo unstable, I have the trial and I've had it hang and crash on me a few times, one time I lost hours of work (my own fault) just by hitting the tone mapping. Another time I used a filter and it hung and then crashed.

Hi Tazdrago and Jstarghh, welcome to the Affinity Forums.

We've seen a few users report performance issues recently—especially when they are using high-end Nvidia cards. I know it sounds obvious, but can you please make sure you have the most recent drivers installed. Are you both running the Windows 1803 build? There seems to have been a few issues introduced with this update.

Are you primarily working with raw files? If so, from what camera?

Hi Chris,

I'm also seeing terrible (basically unusable) performance on my machine too.

  • Dell, i5, 8 GB RAM
  • Windows 10 1803
  • On-board Intel graphics with latest drivers
  • I'm working with raw files from a Sony a6300.

Basically importing TIFF files from Lightroom CS6 (8 bit, sRGB) and then doing some simple layer work.  Eg: swapping eyes on portraits.  Eventually the system completely bogs down and then each operation will take 15-30 seconds.  Like I said, unusable.

Thanks for any info and please let me know if there's anything else I can help with.
