Select then move pixels affects quality

Recommended Posts

How to reproduce?

1. start with a pixel layer that has some content in it, something with clear edges so you can see the difference, like an icon
2. duplicate it so you can compare before and after
3. make a selection of it
4. move it away and drop

You will notice that the contents of the layer you just moved is now a bit blurry.

Before and after attached. Using Affinity Photo 1.6.7 on Mac.

Thanks for letting me know about the update, seems packed. I installed it, ran the test again and... it's still there. Might have something to do with sub-pixels.

You must move to the same pixel position, otherwise, the pixels are recalculated and, of course, are blurred.
