  1. I second that, too. Since v17 of Portrait Pro AP crashes on launching the plug-in. Clearing the user defaults doesn't work either. Unfortunately AP 1.6.7 still doesn't support THAT particular plug-in...
  2. I want to chime into this as well. After I have upgraded to Portrait Pro v17 Affinity Photo crashes on launching the plugin. With the recent update to AP 1.6.7 I crossed fingers, that the announced plug-in support would cover Portrait Pro too, but unfortunately the same crashes occur reproducible all the time...

    Fuji files

    While Fuji's RAW-files render strangely in Adobe Camera Raw, I find Affinity Photo rather poor, where RAW-conversion is concerned. Reason being, highlight recovery and lifting shadows is rather poor compared to the rest of the bunch. I read somewhere, that one could change the conversion engine in AP, but personally I have never tried, because Capture One leaves nothing to be desired, IMO.
  4. I second that! By pressing and holding the Alt/Opt key and clicking on the "add new layer" icon, one can rename the layer at once in Photoshop, for instance. Please add this feature in AP/AD as well!
  5. To simply copy Lightroom or Adobe Camera Raw settings won't give the look of any given camera profile. Algorithms are ideed different between all applications, not to mention custom curves and some secret sauce under the hood. So, no there is no chance, as far as I know, to replicate Fuji's color profiles. But LUTs would be my best guess too.
  6. Ich habe im Rahmen des 10-tägigen Probeabos die Tutorials zu Affinity Photo angesehen und finde sie sehr hilfreich. Olaf Giermann geht im Workshop die Themen lösungsorientiert an und zeigt dann, wie es mit AP umgesetzt wird. Er featured nicht die immer wieder gleichen Themen, wie sie sonst überall angeboten werden. Dabei gibt er wertvolle Tipps, die auch auf alle anderen Pixelbearbeitungsprogramme zutreffen. Das Tutorial zum schnellen Einstieg ist später mit einigen Überschneidungen zum Workshop, aber gerade bei den Grundlagen (die ich eigentlich überspringen wollte) kommen praktische Tipps am laufenden Band, die den effizienten Umgang mit AP ausbauen. Das habe ich vorher so auch noch nie gesehen. Beide Tutorials sind inhaltlich sehr wertvoll und ich kann sie nur empfehlen! Einzig, das Tutorial zu Affinity Designer musste ich abbrechen, da Monika Gause so monoton klingt, wie Angela Merkels Neujahrsansprachen. Das ist nur etwas für ganz Hartgesottene... Schade!
  7. Just make sure you have the latest Versions of the Nik Collection installed and set proper paths in AP in the Plugins preference panel, like stated in post #7. No need for Nik support. At least it works for me this way.
  8. The basic training just came out three days ago. I am sure, some advanced courses will follow. Maybe also some advanced realworld photo treatments from start to finish.
  9. The app has only one review in the german App Store. Two stars and rather disappointing description of the trainer. He's seems to be learning the prog himself on the fly by trial and error...
  10. Video2Brain has it already. So I guess it's in the pipeline at Lynda, too. :rolleyes:
  11. Great to see'em coming! It was just a matter of time, actually, since Video2Brain (Lynda's german subsidiary company) already released two complete trainings for AP last year. https://www.video2brain.com/de/affinity-photo It's good to see the Affinity crowd grow!

    I know, I'm late to the party. Anyway, a big thanks for this set of brushes! These rock!
  13. Danke, Newstone! Ich habe bisher nur kurz die freien Videos angesehen und werde mir das Tutorial besorgen. Olaf ist ein klasse Tutor und die Inhalte scheinen doch mehr in die Tiefe zu gehen, als die freien Videos im Netz.
  14. Hallo, hat jemand Erfahrung mit dem 'Praxis Workshop' von Olaf Giermann für AP gemacht? Ansich gibt es ja genügend freie Tutorials, aber Olaf ist genial und ich hoffe auf tiefer gehende Tipps, als das Material, das überall zu sehen ist.
  15. 3. Cmd + L adds a Levels adjustment layer. I applied roughly the same settings, as I did in my first tutorial. Now a really cool feature comes into play. In the Levels dialog box choose the Merge button in the upper right corner (actually rather centric, to be more precisely) and the Levels adjustment layer will be automatically merged/applied to the mask layer underneath. Another way to do this would be to make the Levels adjustment layer active in the layers palette and press Cmd + E, which also merges the adjustment layer down to the next pixel layer below, which happens to be the mask layer in this case. HINT: This method works with any adjustment layer. From this point on all the afore mentioned methods still apply to create the edge mask and I won”t repeat these here. Just look into my first tutorial and continue with number 6 from here on.
