  1. Thanks for the update @dominik . I am still waiting to hear from DxO support. I imagine they are pretty busy. Butch
  2. @dominik yes the plugins look ok on my 1920x1080 screen running in demo mode both as a plugin and when I ran HDR Efx Pro,.
  3. Waiting to hear from DxO support on this issue dominik and will be sure to post when i get an answer. DxO support has been very good in the past about resolving issues. Everything except Veviza 2 works ok in the demo mode. So, I really think the activation situation can be addressed by them. Butch
  4. Downloaded the trial version and with the exception of Viveza 2 everything worked acceptably that I could see. Viveza 2 showed a heavy pink color cast and there were no changes I could make to the document color format that would correct the situation. However, since I was more interested in the other parts of the Nik Collection I went ahead and bought it. But, when I tried to activate any of the Nik products it failed with the message that I was not connected to the internet. I then tried to run one of the products standalone which worked just fine but again it failed when I tried to activate. Last night I submitted a trouble report with DxO and when they respond I'll post here how it worked out. Running Windows 10 latest updates. Butch Situation Resolved with not being able to activate DxO Nik Collection running on Windows 10. @dominik Got the response from DxO Monday, June 11, 2018 I heard from DxO Support a shot time ago. They resolved my problem of not being able to activate my copy of DxO Nik Collection running on Windows 10 with latest updates. These are the steps they had me follow: 1. Uninstall DxO Nik Collection 2. Go to the folder C:\ProgramData\DxO Labs\Licenses 3. Delete the two files nik2018demo.lic and nik2018.lic (you may only find one) In my case the file that was there was nik2018demo.lic 4. Reinstall DxO Nik Collection Following those steps I was able to activate my paid copy of DxO Nik Collection and run plugins in Affinity Photo. I hope this may be of help to others. Dxo Support was very prompt in working with this. I submitted my support ticket on Thursday. I started a dialog on Saturday and the situation was resolved on Monday. Given the support folks were responding to a new release I was very pleased with their support. Butch

    Watermark to a Photo Batch

    I have not done this with a watermark but I do run batch processes that execute macros. I think these would be the steps you could take: 1. Create a macro for your watermark text and placement. 2. Run a Batch process that executes the macro you created for your watermark. When you run a Batch Job you can indicate: 1. Which files to include in the batch, 2. What file types you want to save. 3. Where you want to save your output file. 4. What macro do you want to run. If you go to the link posted below to the Official Affinity Photo (Desktop) Video Tutorials you will find a tutorial on how to create text, creating macros and batch processing. The tutorials on all subjects are excellent. I am just a user of Affinity Photo and not a tech person on this site. The area where you placed your question (Resources) is for resources being made available. I think this is problem a better area in the forums for asking a question and getting a response from tech but I just can't think of it off hand. If you look at the titles of the various areas of the forum you may get other thoughts. EDIT: Just found the area on these forums for asking questions. The name of the area is Questions. Hope this helps. Peace

    Unhandled exception

    Same here. It is not consistent as to when it can occur. I have had it occur when it is the only adjustment layer I have added or when I have several adjustment layers. After each crash there is not chance to report the error. Also, after each crash I can reload the file and do the same thing and curves will work without a problem.
  9. Here is a video on YouTube by a fellow named Wei Chong that explained Blend Ranges/Blend Options in Affinity Photo in a way that really give me insight into using Blend Ranges. I has very few views but for me it was very helpful.
  10. For Affinity Photo: There is an option to put a + sign in the center of the Selection Brush Tool. Would it be possible so that this sign is changed to the minus "-" sign whenever you switch the subtract mode? The reason I asked for this the Selection Brush Tool seems to start in the mode it was last used it. I believe that most of the time when you start the Selection Brush Tool you want to be in Add mode. If in fact the Selection Brush Tool is in subtract mode then you have a visual clue so that you know to switch the setting. Thanks
  11. When you first open the Macro Library all the macros are expanded. Could there be an option for these to be displayed in a collapsed state so that only the title of the macro is displayed? It would make working with the display a lot easier when first opening rather than having to manually collapsed everything. Thank you.
  12. I was just getting ready to ask for this too. Very nice if we could set the center point for the vignette live filter. Thank you
