How to "instruct" Photo to use all processor cores

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

A month ago I obtained a new desktop computer with 32 GB memory and an Intel Core i7-7899X processor. Enough processing power so to say. Nevertheless I noticed that during CPU intensive operations (my guess) like an HDR merge with tone map (or even developing RAW images) this system is not used to its full potential. In the standard menus I found Edit, Preferences, Performance and I assigned 24000 MB ram usage limit already to Photo. Are there any other tuning options I am overlooking? Or in other words, How can I get the most performance out of Affinity Photo?

Hope to hear and kind regards, Aad Slingerland.

No basically not, there are some few settings in the preferences but most of them don't play a big role here, the software usually takes what it needs for certain tasks. Meaning here, you can't fine tune the cores to use. - Note that there are already a bunch of theme related threads here in the forum and if you do a forum or google search you will find a bunch of them.


☛ Affinity Designer 1.8.3 ◆ Affinity Photo 1.8.3 ◆ OSX El Capitan

Thanks,  I'll have a look...
