    Nik Plugins

    Ok, I'm an idiot. (My only excuse is that I am suffering from a cold.) I had a non-pixel layer selected.

    Nik Plugins

    I did check that. It was 16 bit. I converted to 8 bit and they were still grayed out. The image was a tiff of a night time shot of a red ferris wheel. Isn't that a AP Workbook file? It was in Open Recents. Update: It's doing it again on one of my tiffs, definitely 16-bit Prophoto RGB. I guess I should take this up in another section since it's v1.67. Regards, Lloyd

    Nik Plugins

    It seems the 1.67 problem of being greyed out was file-specific. I used a .tiff that was a sample file (maybe a workbook file?). On one of my files, all plugins were there. I'm still having under-saturated previews. I'm suspecting that I'm still on v1.0 of Nik since the 1.1 update is supposed to address that. Lloyd

    Nik Plugins

    Color Efex Pro 4 and HDR Efex Pro shows a solid red window and goes into a perpetual search "updating fonts". Viveza, Dfine, and Sharpener load but still have a preview that is lower in saturation than the AP window. This is supposedly the Nik 1.1 update of this morning. I say "supposedly" because the upgrade system seems to still be giving 1.0. I dl'd the trial, uninstalled and reinstalled. DxO doesn't feel the need to put version numbers on the dmg's, so I'm not sure. FWIW, v1.67 is acting up as well. I haven't used AP lately. But my plugin links are all grayed out in spite of them showing in preferences. This is the first time I've run AP in Mojave. Lloyd
  5. Here in the southern US, there is an old saying: "Dance with the one who brung ya." This is something to consider while you guys spew out other apps and Affinity Photo for windows, Mac, Ipad, Xbox, PS4, Commodore 64, etc. The last beta for Mac OS was on March 1. At this point, I've pretty much given up on AP and am back in the Adobe camp. You had me for awhile. But now Adobe will have to either substantially raise the rent or force cloud storage for me to think of Affinity again. I had a lot of hope and I am disappointed.
  6. Great question! I'm unsure of how to use percentage vs pixels as well. I look forward to Affinity's answer on this, and why they chose that parameter.

    Panorama Exposure

    Hmm. I'll raise this in the beta section. Thanks!

    Panorama Exposure

    Now that is curious. I tried that again on a different image set before posting my last reply. Still got sRGB 16-bit output. I double-checked my default color spaces and they are Profoto RGB. Are you using v1.5 RC1? I'll try to investigate further tomorrow.

    Panorama Exposure

    Just tried it by developing the pieces first and exporting to tiff. The resulting pano in this workflow was in Profoto, as I selected in prefs. Apparently, if you do the stitch with raws, you can only get sRGB. I'd like to see that changed. Lloyd

    Panorama Exposure

    I just tried my first pano using 3 vertical images shot with an 85mm PC-E. Result is very good and easy to do. On this first blush, I just fed AP 3 D800E .nef files rather than developing each first. I have set AP's default working space to Profoto RGB for both 16 and 32 bit. The pano was rendered as sRGB and I see no way to change that. Is that a limitation of the pano stitcher in AP 1.5 RC1? Lloyd
  11. Is there any chance that Affinity Photo could be made to support Photoshop extension panels? This would enable compatibility with popular masking panels such as TK Actions, Lumenzia, and Raya Pro among others.

    Lead Programmer Affinity Photo 1.5 Beta will be out in a couple of weeks or so.
  13. I just noticed this also. It seems that the AP browser should show native AP files and thumbnails from day one. I don't get it.

    Affinity for Windows

    MEB, Yes, I understand. I was hoping to be several versions ahead by September. I guess that's not realistic. I do appreciate Affinity's effort! Petar, I was Mac from '86 -'92. The cost at that time was overwhelming. That, and needing Windows for work made me switch. The only way i can justify it now is to use a 15" rMBP as both laptop and desktop

    Affinity for Windows

    I feel your pain. I was Windows for 23 years until switching to Mac last December. Affinity was one of the reasons for that. I'm very happy I switched and don't miss Windows at all. My hope is that AP will be far enough along that I can cancel my CC subscription when it is up in early September. Since the announcement of the expedited Windows version, the Mac updates have stalled completely. Every day I look for 1.5 beta and every day I am disappointed. My confidence that I'll be able to do the switch before renewal is waning.
