    vegasabel got a reaction from RobertZop in Nik Collection support?   
    Will we be able to use the (now) free Nik plugin collection from Google in Affinity Photo? It would be great as I always work with those ones.
     
    I tried re-installing them but Photoshop is the only supported platform it seems.
     
    This would have a dramatic impact in my choice of switching from PS to Affinity!

    So we now know that it's not just me, and also that it affects the color in different ways, not the same way... Mine is like it has the saturation set near to zero, almost black and white.

    I'm painting in Affinity Photo with my Intuos, and when I have the brush tool selected, if I keep the space bar pressed I can move around the canvas, BUT, it paints a bit, like the first ''click''. Could someone test this?

    Personally, I use those on my workflow. I'm familiar with them, and I know everything they do, how to use each one, where and why. Leaving aside that the result can be better or worse than the one you would get from Affinity internal tools, I'd have to learn how to use Affinity tools to get the exact same results that I get with my plugins. It's a matter of time at the end of the day, and how much you can do with just one plugin that combines vignette, saturation, lightning, structure, etc. on the same screen (for example) vs processing the image ''manually'' on Affinity using its tools.
     
    In short, I'd rather have both options.
    I hope that helped! :)

    Well, plugins either deliver functionality unavailable natively to the software; or they simplify the process of getting a desired end result; or they simply do something better than the host programme can do it.
     
    For example: it's certainly true that the Topaz Detail plugin is much better for sharpening my bird pictures than the built-in sharpening tools in Affinity Photo (I would have big problems if the Detail plugin didn't work - although I like the Focus slider in Nik's Sharpener Pro 3 tool as well); and Topaz DeNoise is better at dealing with high ISO noise than Photo's noise reduction (although this is very good itself).
     
    The Nik collection provides a unique way of selectively processing images, by use of Control Points - that's a big deal for some users - and some of the tools in the collection certainly make it easier to achieve results: sometimes results you would not even think of trying, using the native tools in Photo: if I made a habit of black and white, I'm sure I'd use Nik's Silver Efex Pro 2 all the time.
     
    So in summary, plugins can make life - and getting the pictures you want - easier.

    I use the Nik plugins a lot and I do find it odd that they work in most other photo software perfectly well (including PhotoPlus), but they are all almost unusable in Affinity. Maybe it's something to do with my set up, but many of the options fail to even show up, let alone work properly. This is a real "deal breaker" for me. I do hope that this problem can be "sorted" and that the release version will fully support all the Nik Collection. (and, hopefully, most other Photoshop compatible plugins!)
