All images get a visible border when at certain zoom levels

Recommended Posts

There is a bug in the latest 1.6.5.135 Affinity Photo on PC whereby all images either get a border added or any images underneath the top layer show through when at certain zoom levels.

I.e., I have an image whereby I have one layer over the top of another. It fully covers the layer below. But when zoomed to certain levels, the image below displays for roughly 1 or 2 pixels at the top of the image. The image exports correctly (i.e., you can't see the layer underneath), but in Affinity photo, the layer below displays when between 97% zoom and 60%. Then again at 50% - 30%.

Example 2. If I have an image with no layers underneath, then I get a border of 1 or 2 pixels at these zoom levels. I.e., it is not at every zoom level, but at some, and the image exports correctly without a border. The border can be on any side, but usually shows up on the top or left side of an image.

This is quite a problem because visually an image looks wrong until you export, and you cannot tell if it is a bug or you have an alignment issue until you look at the exported image.

This happens with every single image.

Hi @gizmo2501,

Can you please attach a sample file and/or a screen recording of this in action?

Thanks,

Gabe. 

Hi Gabe.

Sure! Please find attached a quick video of it happening. The image has no white border, yet when zoomed to certain levels, you can see a white border appear at the top and to the left hand side.

Hope it helps! Let me know if you need anything else.

Anecdata: I'll second this on 1.6.11 on macOS. Strictly speaking, it's not white but transparent. I see it regularly enough to ignore it. Don't work enough in the beta (except to compare specific behaviors) to know if it still exists over there.

Yes, I think it is transparent actually. I have instances where I have coloured background layers and those colours pop through when they shouldn't.

 

It may be related, but I also have instances where I have solid images which are not intended to have any transparency, but the edge pixels are partially transparent, creating an almost bevel effect and revealing layers below.

@GabrielM Now that 1.7 is out "GM", I'm still noting this issue. It's harder to see on the main monitor (but still existent). On the second display, (2560x1600 - Cinema HD) vs (2880x1800 - MBP 2018) it's much more prominent for the same window. Should a new thread be opened in the "regular" section of the forum or carry on here since it also appeared in the beta?

 

EDIT: FYI, I wasn't going looking for this -- I noticed it on first launch after update when it reopened previously open files.

I have created a new thread, here - 

Also, to note: I have noticed that when I export images, sometimes this transparent border is baked in to the image, whereas, before, I thought it was just a visual issue.
