Hello, some files look different when opened with Affinity Photo 1.7.0.106

(see screenshots)

HI Puck

A number of things have changed such as how some filters and adjustments work behind the scenes which affect the appearance slightly. Without a file or knowing exactly what your file consists of there it is very difficult to say what is causing this slight change

Hi Chris,

the reasons why the files look a little different are clear to me. I just wanted to point out that if you open older files with 1.7.0.xxx, you should take a close look to see if anything has changed. As a hint for other users.

 

Cheers

Can you explain further to help the rest of us?

Hi Walt,

I wanted to say that I can understand that - if you rewrite a program - something like this can happen. It shouldn't, but it is. Unfortunately.

Hi there,

as it turns out - at least in my case - this only happens when the metal compute acceleration is activated. If this is turned off, I have the same view as in 1.6.7 (no matter if 1.6.7 has Metal enabled or not)

Cheers, Puck

Too early: Here's another example of an image created with AP 1.6.7, opened in AP 1.7.0.108 beta (Metal on or off doesn't matter!)

I'm talking about .afphoto files, of course. For example, if I compare jpgs, they look the same in both versions.

Regards, Puck

Hi there, the difference in the appearance of the files seems to occur with certain life filters, because this effect does not appear with every .afphoto file. (Beta 109)

Chris, I would be happy about an upload-link.
