Memory leak? Affinity Photo & Adjustment levels

Recommended Posts

I process a number of photos from a camera for an online store.

Generally I drag 10-15 files onto the icon to be opened by Photos

Then each photo goes thru 4-5 steps:

1) Crop to custom size

2) Adjust White Balance (optional)

3) Adjust Levels

4) Save (as flattened)

5) close file

After 5-6 of these, the Histogram (in the Levels window) starts updating slower and slower. (8-10 sec)

Note: Just found out that if I click on another file/image in Photos WHILE the Adjustment Levels window is active the delay disappears... until I work on the next photo.

Just to clarify: You're referring to the application as "Photos" which (I think) usually refers to a separate Mac application. Since you're posting here do you really mean "Photo", the Affinity application?

What OS do you use?

I'm pulling images from an SD Card (camera), that are jpegs and range from 2 to 6 meg each.

I do not use Apple Photos in my workflow.
