  • Replied in Affinity Photo
    On my Dell Windows 10/Pro, which is about 4 years old, with an I5 processor, 8 GB memory, a 1 GB video card, takes 8 seconds to open a Canon CR2 23mb file in AP.
  • Replied in Affinity Photo
    Afwares, Good to hear that you figured out how to use the Nik apps.  I am just stressing to make sure you use a copy of the photo you're editing.  If you use an original photo and like the results, ...
  • Replied in Affinity Photo
    You can use the Nik apps as a stand alone.  If you do it that way make sure to do it with a copy and not the original photo.
  • Replied in Affinity Photo
    You might be able to run PS 6 in compatibility mode in Windows 10.  I was able to do that with CS2, which I hardly use since getting AP.
  • Replied in Affinity Photo
    That seems long. On my W10-64-Pro, with 8gb memory and an I5  it takes Affinity Photo 9 seconds to open a CR2 file of about 23 mb.
  • Yes you can,  At the top right of the editing page there are four squares offering different options to save or apply saved recipes.
  • I think in Windows 7 you can select to "Restore default settings".  It is in the fonts folder in your control panel.
  • If the transparent view of the un-cropped view bother you, select the white or black stripes at the top of the page.  You will then have a white or black background, without any of the cropped out ...
  • I have been a long time user, using it even before Gabor released it to open licensing. The crop tool as at the top of the edit page or just click C. Once the crop is started it goes to the proper ...
  • I am not having any of the problems you are.  My Nvidia card is even older than yours it's a GTX 620.  My computer is a Dell XPS 8500 running W10/64/Pro and an I5 cpu.  The first time I open AP it ...
  • Affinity offers money back if not satisfied.  There is a !4 day limit for a full refund.
  • I have flash disabled in IE and Edge (MS hasn't issued an update and they are running an old version of flash). In Chrome, I have two versions of Chrome on my machine, I have flash blocked in ...
  • I can't help you, I use Windows, but I would suggest registering and posting in the Rawtherapee forum. They have always been helpful with my questions.
  • I just checked the RT download page http://rawtherapee.com/downloads and the Mac 5.0.r1 was at the top of the page. I don't use mac, but in windows when updating RT it is suggested to uninstall the ...
  • All the talk of having Aero had me worried,  My computer runs W10.  I don't have Aero themes active. I've been using Affinity since the initial beta, and have since bought it. I don't notice it ...
  • I prefer Photorec by Cgsecurity over Recuva. Recuva will find your raw files but saves them as tiffs. Photorec, part of the Testdisk free software, finds and saves them as raws, but changes the ...
  • I think Affinity had offered a money back trial, can't remember how long it was.  You might try contacting them and voicing your displeasure with their software.
  • I use Photomatix, which I have had and used for a long time. When the license expires (when they go to version 6). I would most likely buy Easy HDR. I see where Captain Kimo likes it best for ...
  • I've used Recuva, and it works but saves the raw pics as tiffs. I prefer PhotoRec http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec it's able to save the files as the raws as they were shot (though it ...
  • I recently got Affinity and like it.  Before I was using CS2 in Windows 10/64/pro,  It had a few quirks so I run it using W 10's compatibility mode set to Windows 7.  It works fine, I even have ...
