  1. Thanks for your reply. I found a way (not simple but it works) : 1- add all my color adjustements on separate adjustement layers (don't forget to named every layers with the name you give to the adjustement) 2- save the document as a *.afphoto 3- upgrade your software 4- open your *.afphoto with all your saved color adjustements layers 5- resave them one by one [-_-!] in the adjustements panel … It's a little bit long if you have got a huge adjustements library.
  2. Hi, I've try to upgrade AfPhoto but when I've open this new version (ctrl+click to be sure that all reset options have been unchecked), all my curves presets, my workspace, … disappeared. Fortunatly my TimeMachine works fine and I've restored the previous version with the com.seriflabs.affinityphoto folder. What is the best way to upgrade it without headache ? AfPhoto 1.6.7 Mac OS El Capitan 10.11.6
  3. Hi, As I explain it in my previous post (MacOS + AP + Nik Collection FULL FONCTIONALS ...), Selective Tool plugin can't work in Affinity Photo because it open a scripts panel in Photoshop ; but most of then can be reproduce with simple macros in Affinity Photo ... So I did it ! 1- At first, you have to install Nik Collection plugins for Affinity Photo, some YouTube videos explain clearly how to do it. 2- You have to correct *.config files has I explain here. 3- Install "NIK Collection Selective Tool.afmacros" How it work ? Generaly, the "real" Selectiv Tool copye and merges all the layers, then it creates a full mask (black) befor calling the plugin you select with it. When you've finished to work in the plugin's panel, you go back in the editing software and you just have to erase parts of the mask with a white brush to reveale the effect ... NIK Collection Selective Tool.afmacros works exactly the same way. Note : you don't have to use Selective Tool to work with Nik Collection plugins ; this tool is just a "plus". Enjoy it !

  5. Thanks VectorWhiz :-)
  6. Hello ! Here is my last creation made with Affinity Photo. This creation is an hybrid between photo retouching and digital airbrushing to obtain a retro 80's airbrush style. Enjoy it ! [^_^] Lot's of layers ... [^_^!] More details on my behance page : https://www.behance.net/gallery/66338185/LOVE-HATE-and-VICE-VERSA
  7. Hi, Since I've upgraded to Affinity Photo 1.6.6, Imagenomic Portraiture 2 still crash Affinity Photo when I confirm the render. With Affinity Photo 1.5.2 this combo works perfectly. This plug-in help me to win a huge gain of time in my job of skin corrections ... and lose it is terribly annoying. :-( I've tried this plug-in on 3 (el capitan / sierra) others Macs in my studio with Affinity Photo 1.5.2 and it works perfectly and when I upgrade to the 1.6.6 version, Affinity Photo always crash on render. So I'm sure it's not specific to one computer. Perhaps something have changed in your layers manager and it can't accept anymore a command come from outside (?) I link to this message my latest crash report about this, I hope someone be able to find an answer. Affinity Photo_2017-11-29-135010_Francois-de-MacBook-Pro.crash
  8. Hi, Here is a new report about Protraiture ... 3. Affinity Photo don't crash but when the picture is import in the plug-in, it is transformed in a kind of mosaic (screen_01.jpg) ; and when you validate for render the result, the picture in the layer disapear (screen_02.jpg). Actually, I don't note any problem with Nik Collection, but it's a stand alone suite. I hope this will help the team to find an answer :-)
  9. I didn't expect a so quick answer to my crash report (by the way we're not on "big A" forums) ... Great team !
  10. Thanks for this update. It's a big trouble !!! But I found an unsastify solution : Go to : users/"your user name"/library/containers/ Delete OR Displace them, to save all of your previous setups : - com.seriflabs.affinityphoto - com.seriflabs.affinityphoto.DevelopExtension - com.seriflabs.affinityphoto.RetouchingExtension In fact 1.6.6 can't recognize your previous version and all the setups in it. For the moment, I can work but I lost all of my brushes and all of my scripts. I hope they'll quickly find a solution to re-import our previous setups. Thanks by advance.
  11. In my case, it's not a frustration, it's a need. I create artwork for music labels and Apple iTunes always ask us uncompressed TIFF files (4000x4000@300dpi-sRGB or AdobeRGB) ; if not, your file is rejected by their systems of validation. And when I create covers for physical albums, SONY Music wants a complete folder with pre-press files, fonts, PDF, ... and images in uncompressed TIFF. So it's not a luby. I love working with Affinity Photo, it's a very powerfull and great software but this little lack force me too always use another software to complete my images job ... Annoying, isn't it ?
  12. Hi the team, This morning I have to use the batch processing, but it always crash Affinity Photo when I want to use it. I've uninstalled 3 times the app, but it have not solve the problem. I join you the crash report, I hope it will be usefull to help you to help me ( ^_^!) Thanks by advance batch crash report.txt
  13. @ Fixx : No of course not But the Irix's Picture Viewer has got simple great options to enhance the sharpness of a picture. I have never found this kind of options in any picture editing softwares. In fact you can find these kind of options in 3D softwares to correct and to adjust the antialiasing before a render (antialiasing filters - AAF) ... I have to write a post with examples because results are really good !
  14. Hello, After a quick search on DuckDuckGo, I found this post about "Uncompressed TIFF" in AP. I design covers for some music labels and I work with AP and uncompressed TIFF is a need because Apple iTunes/Music needs covers 4000x4000px sRGB in uncompressed TIFF file format. And after the second feed back I understound AP can't do it (!!!) and I'll have to use a 3rd party software to convert AP TIFF files to an uncompressed version (-_-!). For the little story, I use the Irix's picture viewer of my SGI Octane to do it ... a 17 years old computer ... just because it's fun
  15. Good news for us ! Perhaps I'm not the fist one but I found the way to use all the plugins of the Nik Collection in Affinity Photo. After installing the Nik Collection by following tutorials, we all have the same problems : Viveza 2, Sharpener Pro 3, Dfine 2 et Selective Tool doesn't work. The problem come from the Windows format of the config file of each plugins. In fact, this file is a text file format with the .config extension. Analog Efex Pro 2 - natively works Color Efex Pro 4 - natively works Dfine 2 - you have to replace the Dfine2.config HDR Efex Pro 2 - natively works Sharpener Pro 3 - you have to replace the SHP3.config Silver Efex Pro 2 - natively works Viveza 2 - you have to replace the Viveza2.config (after a quick test, this one doesn't work very well, because of a color problem - I'm not enought competent to solve it) Selective Tool - can't works in AP because it's a sort of scripts panel to call Nik plugins with different ways - We could create similar actions with AP Macros. How and where replacing the .config files ? Go to the folder you create before installing the Nik collection / Google / In Dfine 2 folder > replace Dfine2.config (you have to login) In Sharpener Pro 3 folder > replace SHP3.config (you have to login) In Viveza 2 folder > replace Viveza2.config (you have to login) If you didn't erase the way to access to these plugins in AP's preferences, they works now. Enjoy it ! configs files.zip
  16. @ Brunzenstein : answer in PM.
  17. Hi all ! I'm proud to show you how AP is a professionnal tool. I'm near the end of the of a graphic design of a jewelry catalog for a major French retailer. It was a real challenge I want to succeed and it have been hard because of my 20 years of using Adobe tools ... but I did it ! Why using AP instead Photoshop ? Because of one particular thing : the non destructive effect when you resize au layer. This is really important when you compose a page with objects and you don't know what could be the their final size. In Photoshop this action is destructive and you loose lots of details by trying to find the good placement of your object, so you have to duplicate your object : one for the draft copy and the second one for the final placement ... and pray so that is the last décision of your costumer ! GREAT ! The second things are "move by whole pixel" and "force alignment of pixels" options, the best way to keep a sharp definition of your objects ! SO GREAT ! The third thing is exporting with Lanczos algorythmes ... SO SO GREAT ! At the end of this project, I'll post a long list of little features that could help us to be more productive with AP : management of selection (add to selection, subtract from selection, ...), improve fill panel, "new layer" panel like "adjustments" panel ... Jewels have not been retouched in AP because I need two things to do it well : 1- Oil painting filter. I make a personnal use of this filter to obten specific results on the internals shapes of a jewel. There is a free option for Windows but nothing for Mac ... Source files can be downloaded but I don't know to compile for OSX : https://yande.re/forum/show/2007?page=1 2- Improvments for gradient and color picker tools, actually they are too long to use. See you in few weeks !
  18. Hi all ! Personally I prefer use Filter Forge. It's a powerful tool to create all kind of filters : you can do it yourself or choose one from a huge library ... and it works fine with AP. Lots of graphic studio use this kind of powerful plugin without shame ...
  19. ???? But I smile because it's true and all my friends know it : I'm a hard worker because I love my job of graphic designer for 20 years.
  20. In fact, after a simple copy/paste, the way to resize object in AP works like smart object function in Photoshop BUT you don't have to pay attention to the update of the file. Some people could think it's a silly way to work but I've never made a mistake by having forget a update of an object ... I use my head instead of let the machine do. (^_^!) And another detail : packshots are on another hard drive. They are archived on a bluray for my jewels library (+2500 objects), and catalogs of a year are archived on a "customer's bluray" ...
  21. I agree ! But when you've got 16 pages and more than 120 jewels on it with specifics colors adjustements for each of them to unify the graphic design, it's better and quicker to have a "final" object on your page instead of using the dynamic one because you have to manage less sources. There is a total of 148 sources in this project ... ;-)
