    Is there a current beta?

    Well, then I guess I did not miss something after all, at least concerning Affinity Photo. Why June 4th in particular?

    Is there a current beta?

    I am pretty sure I must have missed something in the last month or 2. The beta I was using expired perhaps 6 or 8 weeks ago and I have been waiting for the new beta to be released, but have seen nothing. Is there a new beta? If so, where is the link? If not, will there be a new beta?

    Stretching a photo

    Well, of course. I do not understand why I did not think about that before posting the question. Easy as pie. Thank you for reminding me.

    Stretching a photo

    I recently purchased an inexpensive fisheye lens to use for panorama photos. When the images are "de-fished" they give a decent panorama, better than most stitched panoramas that I have processed, but the image tends to be a bit compressed vertically due to the "de-fishing" distortion. I loaded some of these images into AP to "stretch" them vertically, but could find no such native functionality. I ended up using the Perspective Tool and stretching both the top left and top right handles, but I thought there might actually be a "compression" tool that I could use to stretch an image either horizontally or vertically. Is there such a tool in AP?

    Plugin woes

    Yes. I restarted the app. As I wrote in the previous response: Try 2 involved removing all of the entries from the Plugins Search Folder and then restarting AP. However it does not matter at this point as the reset fixed the issue.

    > I was referring to the screenshot you attached No. That was not clear to me. However the screen shot I attached was taken after several tries at fixing the issue. Try 1 involved verifying that there were no entries in the default folder and then restarting AP. Try 2 involved removing all of the entries from the Plugins Search Folder and then restarting AP. Try 3 involved putting some of those Plugins Search Folder entries back in and restarting AP. It was after the 3rd try that I took the screen shot so it looked as though they might have had an effect. However the Plugin Search Folder only had entries for Topaz and MacPhun (now Skylum) plugins and nothing involving Luminar or Aurora, both of which were showing up in the defaults list. > Removing all those entries from that section should have cleared the list on the left without the need to resort to the reset. As I indicated, it did not. However the reset did.

There were no entries, including aliases or other links. > remove them all from the Plugins Search Folder section and check if they still appear for you. There was nothing to remove. > This will clean the Affinity list. That seems to have solved the problem.

    Plugin woes

    > Hopefully an un sandboxed veriosn will be more available in the future which may solve some of these issue I am sure an un-sandboxed version would solve all of these problems. So would the ability to call an external editor app and pass along a temp copy of the current image, since most of these plugins have an associated app that could be called instead (and that is how I use them from PhotoLab and/or CaptureOne). But that does not address my concern as to why plugins are showing up even though they are not in the default folder.

    Plugin woes

    I know that improvements have been made to the AP plugin functionality so yesterday I decided to try to add some plugins to AP. The results puzzled me. 1. I first added some plugin modules to the default plugin folder. When the plugins did not work I removed the modules from the default folder, but they continue to show up in the plugin dialog box. There are NO modules in the default folder, but here is a screen shot of the dialog box. As you can see there are a great number of modules that show up as being in the default folder, but the folder itself is complete empty. 2. I then added some folders to the plugin search location, and you can see those, but none of the MacPhun Creative Kit plugins actually even start. If I load an image and call one of the plugins I get the dialog box saying that the plugin has started, but nothing ever actually runs and, because focus has been given to the non-running plugin I can do nothing with AP except kill the process. If there is some way to address these issues I would appreciate it.

    Can not start beta

    If you look at my original post you will see that I was not complaint, but only asking if a new Beta would be available soon. The Betas are designed to not work unless they are newer than the released version. This is not, so it does not work. Hence the question as to when a new Beta would be released.

    Can not start beta

    I had initially assumed this was true for all current Beta users, but apparently not. So what is the problem that is keeping me from opening the latest Beta? It only started yesterday. Before that the Beta was working properly on my machine.

    Can not start beta

    1.6.7. I am not sure but I believe that I got an automatic update notice from the App Store and that it got installed along with some other apps at the same time.

    Can not start beta

    I assume that since I can not start the Beta (You must have the retail version installed) we have to wait for another Beta. Will that be soon?

    Affinity Photo and Noiseware

    I am curious as to how you got any of the MacPhun plugins to work. I can not get any to work. I have tried adding individual plugins (Intensify, Noiseless, Tonality, SnapHeal) and they do not even show up in the plugin list. I add the MacPhun folder and they do show up in the plugin list, but when I try to start them I get the "plugin started" message and then nothing happens. Since AP has given focus to the plugin, and since the plugin did not ever start, I have to terminate the process to do anything. What did you do to get them to work?

    Jpeg

    Yes. That is correct. I tend to forget that as I usually am working with raw or tiff, so I have gotten into the habit of exporting all of my images to jpg. I probably do that as well on those rare occasions when I am working with a jpg, just out of habit.
