    Several Nik Plugins Crashing Ap

    Ah, good to know. I thought the only Viveza problem were crashes upon trying to use control points. Anyway, thanks for the very quick and helpful replies. In my opinion this forum, and the way Affinity staff help out people like me and actually listen to and try to implement user suggestions is one of the things that make this software so awesome :)

    Several Nik Plugins Crashing Ap

    Okay, so believe it or not, after simply uninstalling and reinstalling the Nik plugins, everything works as it should. Including setting control points in Viveza, manipulating them, and having the effect applied after clicking 'Ok' to close the plugin. The only issue I see is that the colours of the large preview in Viveza are completely off (see attached image), whereas the colours in the loupe view on the right more closely match the actual ones in the image in AP - they are still off though. When I apply any Viveza edits to the image, it looks like I would expect it to look after the edits, so it's just an issue of Viveza not displaying the image properly (which makes it hard to see what you are doing).

    Mine look identical but for the location of the plugin folder - I do not have PS installed, so I made my own folder in 'Applications'.

    Several Nik Plugins Crashing Ap

    Thanks for both of your replies. The plugin support folder is already set to '/', and I have already authorised the plugins globally (the option is now greyed out). The splash screen (demo now at 13 days) and crashes happen despite this. Would it make sense to either 1) reinstall Affinity Photo from scratch, or 2) delete and redownload and install the Nik Plugins (I am currently using the same files I downloaded early last year), or 3) do both?
  5. Hi DEF13, thanks for your suggestions. I may try them some time soon - my problem is that for me Dfine, Viveza and Sharpener do not work at all. AP crashes ('unexpectedly closes') immediately when I try to open any of them. I don't even get to the point where I can try selective editing <_< Let's see whether your fix will solve my problem.

    Several Nik Plugins Crashing Ap

    Using Affinity Photo 1.5.1 on a Mac. I reinstalled the free Google Nik collection today (I had it installed before, but it disappeared after the 1.5 update). Made sure I followed all instructions carefully, authorised globally etc. AP Preferences show Analog Efex Pro 2 and Color Efex Pro 4 as 'Working', the rest is marked as 'Unknown'. Analog and Color Efex do, in fact, work, and so do Silver Efex and HDR Efex. But Dfine, Viveza, and the two Sharpeners just crash. I know others have reported Viveza crashing when setting a control point, but for me it already crashes when simply trying to open it. Affinity Photo just closes in an instant, and I get a macOS message that it quit unexpectedly. I was under the impression that all of the Nik plugins are supposed to work in AP 1.5 (with some bugs still to be sorted out)? Additionally, when opening the filters that do work, I get a prompt to buy them, or initiate the 15-days demo. That is despite the Nik collection now being free, and me having downloaded the files after they became free. I would be grateful for any advise :)

    Unable to defringe images

    Thanks, that actually made quite a difference! However, while some of the fringes where almost completely removed (e.g. edge on the leg on the left side) some where hardly affected (refer to right side of the attached image). But it should do. The fringing isn't too intrusive and my primary reason to tackle it was because I am editing the snow slope, person, and sky separately via selections, and the fringing made it harder to accurately select the areas without getting halos later.
  8. I have recently purchased Affinity Photo and started to play around with it in the last couple of days. It's a great software and I am still learning the ropes, but I have run into an issue that I have been unable to solve so far. I have an image of winter mountaineering in Glen Coe that shows moderate purple fringing which I have attempted to reduce as described in one of the official video tutorials, but none of the methods work. Whether I am working with a live filter layer or through the Filters => Colours => 'Chromatic Aberration' or 'Defringe', the amount of fringing does not change in the slightest, even when applying the latter several times. The fringing is both prominent and in stark contrast to the surrounding areas, so should not be difficult to remove for any software. I have made sure my layers are selected properly (ignore the fact that in the screenshot they're not) and have not managed to find any solution via Google or this forum. Does anyone have any idea what I am doing wrong? Screenshot attached.
