Personally, I would rather not have a DAM as part of Affinity Photo. My workflow to Affinity Photo is from Capture One Pro where all my RAWs are stored together with the Tiffs returned from Affinity Photo. I'm sure that this is the same process for many Lightroom users. A separate DAM product would be the way to go.
vague-logic replied to pingssgp's topic in Older Feature Requests & Suggestion PostsMost of the Topaz plugins already work fine with Affinity Photo (AP) if they are set up correctly in the AP Preferences, plugin tab. For BW Effects I have the following entries:- Plugin Search Folder> "Library/Application Support/Topaz labs/BW Effects 2/Plugins" Plugin Support Folder> " /" Don't enter the quotation marks! Don't forget to tick the "Work with unknown plugins" box This approach will work for most of the Topaz plugins apart from Glow, Texture Effects, Impression, and the new DeNoise 6 and Remask 5 (earlier versions do work). I haven't spent much time trying to sort them out as they work stand alone anyway.
Using Digigravure's suggestion for the 'Photoshop Plugins' tab dialogue in Preferences (8th August post), I have all of my Topaz plugins working apart from Re-mask 4. On launching Re-mask from Affinity Photo a warning message appears to say that the "transparency" needs to be unlocked. This happens whether the layer is locked or not. My system is a rMBP running Mavericks.
