  1. thanks 0Kami, just realized that from plugin menu in Luminar you can use the Nik collection. also got the new update of DxO Nik, unfortunately the plugins still won’t work with AP unless using the old google plugin.
  2. I agree with what you saying, its AP Mac user issues and hopefully will be fix soon. I never tried or thought to use Nik from Luminar, now I have to look for that.
  3. you can still run Nik Collection latest update from DxO from the old free version plugin folder, just copy/paste somewhere else before deleting the old Nik and once the new version is installed, you’ll need to change the AP path to that old folder (which you can paste back beside your new folder) instead of the new folder you just created installing the new one. it won’t show “by DxO” on top right corner when using your Nik software, but you still can use them.
  4. I'm toasted, it all freeze forced quit now using it after rebooting my computer. how could it was running on the old path but missing the old Nik which is uninstalled, not even the same plugin folder to differentiate them. not sure what I did but running as stand alone here too.
  5. Hi Mikerofoto, I have tried your installation according to the screenshot you have provided and it doesn't work for me. Nik still freeze during the "preparing image" process. Have you check this really is the new version that you are running ? Sorry to ask but the first link they send to me after purchase was actually the latest free release 1.12.12 instead of the 1.12.14 paid one. They apologized for that, but first I have thought that everything worked perfectly. The solution I use for now, is to install the new version in standalone and the old one for the plugins. Oddly, when I check the version number, it shows the old plugin number with the new suite number version, e.g. Silver Efex pro shows version 2.0.0.25 (1.12.14) instead of 2.0.0.25 (1.12.12) or 5.0.0.0 (1.12.14). Fx you got me thinking that I have the wrong version installed and double checked. the DxO version will show upper right corner Nik by DxO and not Nik Collection like on your screenshot. here's mine
  6. yes, I got that email too saying it was the wrong link and had to download the new one, for installation of the new Nik you have to delete the old one(from DxO website troubleshooting page), which I did using uninstall from the Nik folder in the app folder, then installed the new Nik from DxO, which asked for the serial number on installation. I tried sharpener pro as stand alone for the image and all I had was a blank, haven’t got time to try again but will check later to see if I still have this issue.
  7. i added them manually after installing the old free Nik and just the googe folder for the plugin search, haven’t changed anything to that before installing the new Nik. I did used the authorized global otherwise they were not working with AP.
  8. I've been playing with all morning, trying colour effect, silver effect, sharpener pro and analog without any issues from AP. i uninstalled the old version from the uninstaller in app/nik collection folder (MAC) and install the new dxo nik, now all the presets I had made are back when using nik collection. haven't touch any old folders or setting in AP. the first time I installed the new dxo nik I did not uninstall the old first and noticed that all presets were gone.
  9. add a pixel layer, select inpainting brush and on middle top, change current layer to layer below.
  10. thanks, found the answer for Paper Name & Corresponding ICC Profile for Canon printers found on canon support download files. for quality & media, ilford media type set to Other Glossy Paper (Wide Margins). here's screenshots from it, maybe for some future people looking for that.
  11. thanks Callum, you’re in color matching / color sync, this work but I’m looking for “quality & media” to find ilford smooth pearl and the only types of paper showing are Canon. or quality & media don’t matter if your color matching is already set?
  12. I got the Ilford prestige smooth pearl photo paper and I want to use it to print an image, Affinity Photo.... go to print / colour matching, the icc profile is there but in quality & media, I can't find it, is there a place I should be adding the Ilford icc profile other than library/color sync folder? -I'm on a Mac -I have Canon pixma pro-10 printer. thanks
  13. thanks, I know .tiff are big, I have quite a few around 1GB per image, I just wanted to see if there’s a way to save some space other than jpeg. I tried flatten, which really just turn to be about the same (+/-50MB) as exporting a 16bit .tiff without keeping layers.
  14. I'm going through different setting for saving files on my hard drive, always saving as .tiff so I got more range of colours with whatever program to be use with. now I'm having some issues and i've been trying many ways of saving with AP and came to that. NEF file is = 69MB save as .tiff 16bit from NEF = 272.7MB open/modified and exporting from AP= save as affinityphoto format 8bit = 482.4MB clicking cmd/S for saving with layer 8bit = 546.7MB export as .tiff without layer 8bit = 33.6MB export as .tiff without layer 16bit = haven't tried that yet -so the question is, why would saving with layer triple the file size?, and that's only using layers and mask, no added images finishing with merge visible. -changing to 8bit from 16bit and deleting the background in snapshot before saving or exporting. how can I save my files with layers without reaching the 500MB size? thanks
  15. here’s a link for supported plugin in AP, none of Macphun are compatible http://www.miguelboto.com/affinity/photo/plugins-support/mac/
  16. is it worth updating to high sierra just for that? that's my main concern, I use DxO lab now for camera / lens correction then send it from there to AP.
  17. here’s an easy place to go, select your colour than click on mono or complement or triad etc. http://colorschemedesigner.com/csd-3.5/ hope this help.
  18. just received mine in the mail, pretty fast shipping!
  19. install the youtube app, you can find them all there too instead of vimeo
  20. exporting dng to jpeg 8bit/16bit and colour profile like adobe 1998 or srgb make a difference. can you give more info?
  21. here’s the list I found for Affinity plugin compatibility http://www.miguelboto.com/affinity/photo/plugins-support/mac/ I am no geek on computer to figure out this but, how or what does it take to make those plugin working?
  22. looking at AP supported plugin, luminar isn’t on the supported list. maybe it would be a good thing to update the list and get some stuff compatible, making a better life away from Adobe Ps?
  23. you can always use this tool by Phil Harvey https://sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/
  24. si la fenetre Bienvenue de Affinity apparais pas par défaut en ouvrant AP, dans les menus du haut/aide/bienvenue. plusieurs personne enleve le crochet de bienvenue, dont moi alors c'est la seul façon de la voir encore.
  25. you can always use NX-D to get the camera/lens correction then send it to AP. that’s the down part of owning a new camera body, its a matter of time before all software get the update.
