  1. well - it is embarrasing! Had I been able to delete the post, I would have done Fundamentally,Nik collection needs to be applied to a pixel layer. Also, I found some difficulty in dealing with afphoto files. My solution was to create a merge visible layer, then save as a tiff file. Then I opened the tiff file and applied filters-> plugingins ->Nik Collection and it worked Common sense really, but at the age of 80, I think I can plead impending dementia!!
  2. I recently purchased Nik Collection 5 including the PhotoLab 5 offer. I think I followed the instalation instructions, but got into a mess. So I uninstalled all Nik related items and started again. The files are installed ina directory titled Affinity Photoshop Plugins. There are 2 directories "DXO" and "Nik Collection" My computer is dell Precision 7540 running Windows 11 and the system tyoe is 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor The installation into Affinity Photo seemed quite normal. An image of the preferences->olugins panel is shown below. However, when I load an image in Affinity and look for the Nik plugins under the filters tab, all seem to be there but greyed out. Advice please. (I did enter the activation code during an early attempt to install, and I have not been asked for it since, even though I have uninstalled. The individual Nik components seem to work in standalone version) advice please
  3. I think some of the original ones are still available at https://www.miguelboto.com/affinity/photo/video-tutorials/ BUT, remember AP, AD have moved on, so they need tp be used with discretion
  4. Using PagPlus I was able to print self adhesib=ve label 3x6 on a page. If any data field was empty, then it was ignored. The new data merge in Publisher looks very exciting, but is there a SIMPLE step by step tutorial that explains how to achieve the same result in Publisher as was (is) possible a PagePlus, including the omission of empty address lines? I use an addr4ess list generated via Excel from my Google Chrome contacts list.
  5. I have had further discussions with Daminion and have recently received the following quote Hi Graham, Thank you for the detailed description! The problem might, indeed, be related to the fact that affinity files are not natively supported by Daminion. We have registered the request to add the native support, but we need to get more user requests before adding it to our roadmap. Adding new format support is a pretty complex task and we need to get more requests to do it. Kind regards, Daria Un quote
  6. Psenda I tried to register, but it asked me to check if username was available, but did not tell me where to do that.
  7. v_kyr In the example which I attached. The date shot was 18-07-2018; but the date created was 22-12-2019. Presumably that is because I did not process the file until end of 2019. I will study the documentation, which I have now downloaded and try to disentangle the problem I really appreciate your help.
  8. More questions, I am afraid. 1: Presumably I can substitute NEF or DRG (Nikon Raw) for ORF 2: Sometimes I only have the .afphoto file, not the raw. Presumably I would have to make a temporary jpg file which exiftool could access to extract the date. 3: The date I want to capture is DateShot (see screen shot attached), which does not appear in your list of examples. What EXIF name would that have?
  9. I am having difficulty with this. IFor method 1 it is too late to deal with the many files I already ahve. For method 2, I am not sure what goes into the xyz element. Then, how do I use the external exiftool? I shall do a search for some advice, but if you can point me to a source that is understandable to a non expert, then I would be grateful. Reflecting further on your initial comments, I may not need to alter the file date itself. What I am doing is organising my photos (and other material) in the Daminion data asset manager. need only chnage the creation date withi daminion to achieve the sort on my photos that I want, That still requires that I extract the date shot from the metadata. I have put this problem to Daminion (who are incredibly helpful) so that it can be writtrn to the Daminion date created field. I will point them at exiftool to see if it helps their processes. Thanks for the thoughts. SAny further advice would be welcome.
  10. This is possibly naive, and may have a simple solution. It seems that when I process a raw file in APh and save that as an affinity photo file, the file date is the date that I first saved that APh file, not the date shot I would like to batch change this date to the "date shot", which still exists within the exif data Is there any way to do this? Could a macro be created to do this?
