Gaussian blur creates weird tiles artefact

Recommended Posts

Hi, I was adding a little Orton effect in Beta 1.7.0.293. So I added a Gaussian Blur layer. It introduced ugly looking tiles.

I switched Gaussian Blur layer's blend mode to Normal on the screen-shot below in order to amplify tiles, but the same artifacts can be seen with Screen mode as well, it is just a tad less pronounced:

At this point, I am getting a bit tired of seeing bugs and thinking of switching back to Adobe. Please help.

EDIT: I attached a cropped slice of the image in .afphoto format - I can still see the issue when I load this file.

UPDATE: I edited the image in AP 1.6.5  using the same steps - the good news is that this bug is only reproducible in the recent AP Beta. Switching back to 1.6.5 for now.

Can you provide a sample .afphoto file?

Thanks for your response: I attached a cropped slice of the image in .afphoto format to the original message at the top - I can still see the issue when I load this file.

It's definitely a bug ...

The problem occurs when the adjustments are grouped .

For me this kind a bug is a no-go. I can live without plugins, but I won't use AP if built in tools fail. Either Serif fixes this, or I am switching to Photoshop.

Well, pretty sure Serif will fix it eventually so it's not much of a threat unless you are going to give them some sort of timescale that you could live with.

Alternatively, for now, if you want to continue using the beta, just ungroup the adjustments (as hinted at previously) or add the image to the group


Due to the ongoing Brexit negotiations, punctuation, spelling and grammar will be used sparingly until further notice.

Ye, we are talking about Beta so such bold statements are a bit off.

This and any other regressions are almost certain to be top priority on Serif’s list of bugs waiting to be fixed.
