    NIK plug in

    It seems to work for me when using the top level folder for the NIK Collection rather than adding each folder individually: And the Filters appear in the list:

    Raw Photo is very dark

    Try turning on the tone curve in the develop assistant a it is a Linear RAW conversion.
  3. Hi, It seems as though Affinity Photo (or Designer whichever gets to it first) installs itself as the default app to open unallocated image types. In this case CR3 images which it cannot even open. Is there a way to remedy this without going through the list and allocating another application?
  4. This happened after the install and the thing is that Affinity recognises CR3s as a image file and lets you select them to open. But of course the message displayed is that it is unsupported. I suspect that the install is selecting all unallocated image files during the install. Regards Don
  5. Activate the tone curve in the develop assistant. BTW I would remove my email address from your post as this is a public forum and anyone has access.
  6. .aphoto files are not backward compatible as they typically implement new features.
  7. It seems that support for the Canon CR3 format is a long time coming as the first camera with native CR3 images was the EOS M50 and was released on 26 February ... As it is now September is there any likelihood we will see native RAW support for CR3 images soon? This is the new Canon format and will be in all new cameras.
  8. The workaround is to choose Document-> Convert Format/ICC Profile, then convert the ICC Profile to sRGB IEC IEC61966-2.1, call Studio, do your work and then when you go back to Affinity convert back to your original ICC Profile using the same dialog.
  9. In the interim you could use DPP for iOS ... https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/canon-dpp-express/id1315877685?mt=8
  10. As Sharpen AI is a very new product in the interim you can open the image in A photo and then call Sharpen AI using the plugin interface.
  11. Why don't you look at Adobe Bridge that is free ... and there are quite a few free others out there such as Irfanview, XNview etc., etc. Personally my preference is Adobe Bridge and Irfanview.
  12. Note that all Topaz Plugins can be run from Affinity Photo and the products that have been migrated to Studio will appear in the Topaz Studio plugin list such as this screenshot:
  13. Remember it is a Beta product and there may be issues so therefore it should never be used for anything except testing, remember Sharpen AI works as a Plugin from AP both PRD and Beta.

    Nik Collection error

    I don't see it in ... only Rasterize...

    Nik Collection error

    I wonder if it would be possible to have that option in the right-click layer menu along with the Rasterize... option?

    Nik Collection error

    This should be moved to the Photo Beta thread as the Rasterize layer doesn't work the same as in Prd, the only way to get the crop to stick is to Flatten the Document.
  17. Yes, doesn't apply as much as is applied in the Develop Persona.
  18. In my case you have to click on the original Blend mode, in this case Color Burn was there when I moved off and remained there even when clicking elsewhere. If you click on the Layer or another it will revert.
  19. Sorry Alfred, my bad ... forgot to mention the dialog ... assuming.
  20. You can try clearing user settings by holding down the Ctrl Key when starting the application. E.G. hold down the CTRL key and double-click on the icon.
  21. Personally I just use dual-boot as, no matter what anyone says, native apps for Windows never have exactly 100% of the Windows functionality on UNIX/LINUX and we have done that for years. Of special complexity is the graphics abilities, external apps, plugins etc., etc.
  22. Have you forgotten that Serif say they are not interested and they certainly will not give away the code.

    Developing Performance #240

    Yes it seems as though the Tone Mapping Persona is the real culprit:
  24. I wonder if the people wanting Serif to create a DAM, unusual for a pixel editor, would pay for it ... and how much. Personally I don't see the value of a DAM for AP. There are so many explorer alternatives available for free now ... Adobe Bridge, IrfanView, XN-View , etc., etc.
