  1. Hi @Mark Ingram thank you for working on the color problem! The latest beta fixed that bug in the plugins that I use most often. The colors look OK now in Topaz Labs plugins (tested with ProPhoto RGB images). When testing some more plugins I found that some are showing correct colors now while in some the colors still are looking weird. The color bug is fixed in those plugins as of Affinity Photo 1.7 beta 333: Topaz Studio 1.14.4 Topaz Denoise AI 1.0.3 Topaz Sharpen AI 1.1.3 Nik Color Efex Pro 4 Nik Analog Efex Pro 2 Nik HDR Efex Pro 2 Other plugins that still display wrong colors when invoked from Affinity Photo 1.7.333 are: Nik Dfine 2 Nik Viveza 2 Nik Sharpener Pro 3 Alien Skin Bokeh 2 Neat Image 8.3.7
  2. You are right, and - if I'm not completely wrong - it should not be too hard to accomplish this. It's just about sending color profile information to the plugin the right way. It might well be just an API parameter not set quite the right way, so that fixing this problem would need just a little tweak of the source code.
  3. One of the things that should not be too hard to implement and that I really would like to see in 1.7 final is a fix of the color profile problem when using a plugin: This problem is not only affecting the Nik Collection plugins but also Topaz Studio plugins. It is a quite annoying bug and should be reasonably easy to fix.
  4. Even if most of the things you can do using a plugin can be achieved with AP's own tools there still are some things that can be done faster with the help of plugins. Additionally some plugins achieve superior results and some results even cannot (yet) be achieved using standard tools. For example on a regular basis I use Topaz' AI clear in Studio to remove noise and sharpen images (letting the noise alone). The results are quite amazing. I don't know of any other tool producing such quality results. Sure you have a noise reduction in AP but I still prefer the superior results of the plugin. And there are other adjustments in Topaz Studio that have no equivalent in AP. Anyway, people are diverse. Some prefer to do all the work in one program and avoid leaving it, which is perfectly fine. Others prefer to achieve quick results using plugins, and others again wish to achieve results they cannot produce with native tools of the program (or don't know how to). But that's not the topic of this thread. This is about fixing a problem which should not be too hard, I think. It's just an issue of sending correct color information to a third party tool.
  5. Hi, I just signed up here because I saw this thread. The color problem with plugins (in my case mostly with Topaz Studio) is really annoying. I was very disappointed to see that this wasn't fix even in the current beta. It forces me to produce lots of intermediate images just to apply an effect in Topaz Studio, then go back to Affinity an open the intermediate file for further edits. Affinity Photo is a great piece of software but this bug is driving me crazy! I really hope that Serif is able to get this fixed in one of the next betas or at least in the final release version.
