Stock panel - "connection failed"

Recommended Posts

Hi,

The Stock panel worked for me in Beta of Photo, but with release of the final version I get "connection failed". I'm working on W10.
Any ideas?

Hey Przemysław,

As far as I know, only users with Windows 7 have been experiencing the 'Connection failed' message. 

The main thread can be found here:
https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/88295-stocks-tab-unsplash-not-working/&page=2

However I believe the fix being discussed only applies to Windows 7 but it may be worth having a read anyway. 

I think we may need to do something about this as expecting users to modify the registry isn't really a solution.

It works OK in the most recent Betas.
I have this problem on both my PCs, on work PC I can't edit registry anyway.

Stock Panel not working with "unsplash" "pexels" and "pixabay"

Get Connection failed every time

Using the latest version of Affinity Photo on Windows 10, I can access these sites using my browser with no problem

Yes - didn't help.

Funny thing is, they all used to work, a while back Unsplash ans Pixabay stopped working, and just today i noticed that Pexels has also stopped.

To be honest it's not a major problem, I can just go to their websites. Just a minor irritation!

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums :) 

We think this is a recent change to Pexels affecting all customers on all OS's (If Pexels stock search is still working for any other readers of this thread feel free to correct me))

Update - when I first said that none of them were working I was using my work PC.

I don't often use the stock tab at home, but I just checked and Pexels is the only one saying "connection failed", the other two are working OK.

Pexels is best avoided anyway, IMO.
