offensive splash screen


Recommended Posts

Hello Affinity 

I like your apps a lot, but every time I open Photo I am struck by the female face image of the splash screen. In this day and age I am surprised that you would go with such a sexist splash screen.  It makes me want to not open the app. As I started hunting around for a way to delete this app resource, it occurred to me that I should air my opinion, so here it is.

Which version of APh are you running?

I just opened the latest release (1.6.5.123) and Beta (1.7.0.240) on Windows and both feature a splash screen whose initial panel shows a male face!!  Perhaps that should be described as sexist??

I'm sorry, but I think this is very much a "red herring".  :S

We're using this one now, Martin:

For the UK English splash screen (as indicated by the spelling of ‘colour’) it should refer to ‘Third party licences’, not ‘Third party licenses’.

As the new beta does not have this image I am closing this thread as fixed.
