  1. @R C-R Thanks for the reply, I did find that in another thread. I've got a question into Serif on this, so we'll see if there is a way to stick handle thru this issue. Cheers.
  2. @Geertruud I have an email into Serif on this. Reading through various threads it seems possible that software NOT purchased directly from Serif MAY have certain restrictions. Personally I'm seeing the only solution is to uninstall AP, then purchase again directly from Serif. Good thing it's 50% off. When Serif responds, I'll post their reply. Best of luck.
  3. Thanks @R C-R. The "authorize global" is greyed out. I understand this means the plugins are authorized.........??
  4. I just read in another group there is an apparent difference in the AP software purchased from Serif to that of the version purchased through the Apple App Store. The difference mentioned is the Serif version handles 3rd party plugin properly and the App Store version does not. I have an App Store version and can confirm after much fussing about, it is frustrating to hand off to a plug-in (Topaz Labs, or Luminar or Google Nik.......). If this is true can I migrate from the App Store version to the Serif Version? Actually if it’s NOT true can I migrate anyway?

  6. I just read in another AP group that there is a difference between the version purchased from Serif vs the version purchased from the App Store. The Serif version plays well with 3rd party plugins and the App Store version does not. I’m going to inquire whether that is true or not.
  7. Workflow typically is: Open RAW, make adjustments in the DEVELOP persona, click DEVELOP. Now i'm in the PHOTO persona. Perhaps further adjustments, but am not sure what is the default image file format in the PHOTO persona after (for lack of better description) RAW conversion? The image info at the top centre of the screen shows the file as a RAW file (.NEF or . ARW) when in the PHOTO persona. What type of file is Affinity trying to hand-off to the plug-in (tiff, png??) The layer panel shows as "Background (pixel)" layer when in the PHOTO persona. Screenshot below was from within the PHOTO persona.
  8. I can only get plugins, in AP, to open only when I'm NOT working on a RAW file (eg, .jpg) Plugins for NIK (google), Luminar and Topaz Labs. Looking for a solution for working with RAW files.........
  9. On my 2012 16GB iMac, 10.14.6..... I can start the plugin for TS2 ONLY from a JPG. Will not start Topaz from a RAW file. From the JPG, none of the LOOKS are recognized but FILTERS do work, so its a partial win. Trying to get SHARPEN AI to work...........
  10. I've been trying to get TS2 to work on Mac OS but am unable. Can you offer assistance on where AP is pointing to in order for the plugin to "work ok"? I can start TS2 from a JPG file but not a RAW file. With a JPG file, there are no LOOKS available. Thanks in advance.
  11. Feature request for the VIGNETTE Live Filter: 1) adding a button to allow the user to locate/place/relocate the "centre of the vignette" would enhance workflow. 2) adding a slider to allow user to adjust the inner brightness of the vignette would enhance workflow. Thanks You!
  12. I too am learning about all the horsepower under Affinity's hood. After you completed the adjustments in the Tone Mapping Persona have you tried going to the Develop Persona and using the lens correction tools there?
  13. Thanks Jim. I won't even to pretend to understand what you said. :huh: At the end of the day, if all AP files sizes are multiple times the size of the RAW file, it eventually becomes a storage issue/concern.
  14. Thanks totoff & coranda. I'll drill a little deeper. I did a save, which gave me a file with an Affinity Photo file extension name that was 6 times the RAW file size. So obviously I need to learn a bit more.
