    Help! Printing Problems

    This is essentially a duplicate/continuation of this thread. @artycraftyrosie I think you would be best-advised to keep all the discussion in that same thread. Jeff
  2. @Viruskiller Yes, I realised soon after I had posted that the message was in your first post! Sorry. I wonder whether this is a message from APh, or Akvis, or even Windows itself? Hopefully, a developer/Serif staff member will see this thread and let you know what is the possible source of the error. I have to admit I've never seen an error message like yours before. Jeff
  3. @Viruskiller What is the wording of the error message? That may give a clue to why you are unable to use the plugins. Jeff
  4. Hi. Thanks for the update. Because I don't have the majority of those plugins I can't comment directly, but, as I wrote before, NatureArt and Decorator both work without problem for me in the latest release version of APh. I notice you mention Magnifier and imply that it has worked for you as a plugin. Is that in APh? Because I've never been able to use it as a plugin there. Jeff
  5. @Viruskiller Welcome to the Affinity forums. Which Akvis plugins do you have? On my system, both NatureArt and Decorator work without problem in Photo (I also have Magnifier but that has never worked a s a plugin for me.) Those three are the only Akvis plugins I have. Jeff
  6. Same for me; the History slider is invaluable for this. Jeff
  7. @Ros. Riha Thanks for the update. Another example of the problems created by software listed in this post. Glad you were able to resolve it. Jeff
  8. @Pipit I really don't want to prolong this thread because I think we are all going round in circles, but, reading again your earlier posts, it seems that the high level of magenta shows on your earlier screenshot because you took your original RAW into DPP4, exported it as .tiff, imported that into APh and that is when the magenta "appears". I can't explain why this should be; perhaps there is a wrong setting somewhere in your monitor colour profile or the profile of the .tiff is being read wrongly. As shown in my earlier screenshots, if I take your RAW direct into APh, Develop it (using default settings) and then apply a little Brightness and Contrast, I get the result posted in my second screenshot earlier. Yes, there is some magenta colour-cast there, though considerably less than is shown in your screenshot, but others have suggested how you may attempt to reduce this. Why don't you simply open your RAW directly in APh, so bypassing DPP4 completely, and see what results you achieve? I actually used the latest Beta, which you can download to test from the Beta section of the forum, if you wish. Jeff
  9. @Ros. Riha Just to be sure: did you first uninstall the existing GPU drivers, as @Callum wrote (and follow that by a reboot of your computer) or merely reinstall them so attempting to overwrite the existing settings? It seems, from reading several threads in the forum from users experiencing similar problems to yours, that the uninstall (and reboot) is a vital part of the method to attempt to resolve the problem. HTH Jeff
  10. @ionCoder Welcome to the Affinity forums. Each OS, Windows, Mac or iOS, has its own individual licensing system. The software is platform-specific so if you wish to use any of the apps on a different OS to the one you originally bought you will need to purchase a licence for it and then download and install the OS-specific software. Jeff
  11. @Pipit I'm not sure what the problem is here. The first screenshot below shows your RAW file open in the Develop persona of the latest Beta of AP, no changes made. The second shows what I see if I press Develop and then apply a little Brightness and Contrast in the same version of AP. Finally, when opened in Canon's own DPP4 (latest version, 3rd screenshot). I honestly see very little difference between this and my first screenshot, perhaps a little darker. Jeff
  12. @Grenpara Hi. Where did you buy the apps originally, direct from Serif or via the Microsoft store? If you purchased direct from Serif, simply log into your account and you will have access to be able to download and reinstall the software, along with a list of your Product Keys, which you will need to allow installation to occur. If you purchased via the M$ store, you will need to log into the store, using the same email and password as you used when first purchasing. Clicking the three dots (ellipsis) at the top right corner of the opening screen will allow you to click "My library", which will then show you all the apps you have purchased and allow you to download and reinstall your Affinity apps. (In this case no key is needed since the app is linked directly to your M$ store account.) There is no need to uninstall the apps from your old machine unless you wish to do so. HTH Jeff

    @JTBeans Welcome to the Affinity forums. Unfortunately, no. Each operating system, Windows, Mac, iPad, has its own, non-transferable licensing system. Jeff
  14. @prayaam Welcome to the Affinity forums. Each Affinity app has a separate licence for each operating system, Windows, Mac or iPad. So, transfer of licences between the different systems is not possible, sorry. Jeff

    Affinity Photo on mac and pc

    @A bas le ciel Welcome to the Affinity forums. Unfortunately what you are asking is impossible. Each operating system version of the Affinity apps requires its own, individually purchased licence. Jeff
