Affinity Photo for Windows - 1.7.0


Recommended Posts

Just want to say a big thank you for this update!

I got my AP license just over a month ago and since then I've been using it in tandem with my old copy of CS5, gradually transitioning more and more towards AP, but I would occasionally get hit by unexpected slow-downs that pushed me back into CS5. Since I updated to 1.7 I haven't experienced any of these problems -  it's consistently responsive and just feels more solid throughout. In short, it's now an absolute joy to use, a truly outstanding piece of software in all respects.

Well done to the development team and again, thank you.

Windows 8.1.  Upgrading application software can lead to disasters so I first made a copy of the Affinity Photo directory, rebooted my PC, and ran the upgrade from the default download directory.  Perfect.  My keyboard shortcuts have all reverted to their defaults, but no big deal.  Thanks.

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums :) 

Sorry about the shortcuts, they have gone unless you backed them up. We are testing a fix for this specific issue, and may well roll it out for customers who have not yet updates from 1.6.5 to 1.7.0

 I am currently running the 1.7.0.333 beta so should I uninstall it and install this official release instead?

Yes, please stop using the beta.

I noticed that the Windows desktop icon for the 1.7 released version is a square where prior versions were a triangle.  I had thought that triangle was for the released version and square for beta.

Is the change to a square icon for the released version deliberate or an oversight?

It's deliberate
