    I downloaded LR for the trial period, just to play with the catalogue function. Trial ended and.... Drum roll... LR Library is still functional. Can't develop or use ACR, but I wasn't using them anyway. I've added Affinity Photo to the Edit with... and so far so good
  2. Hello, Not quite the same issue, but a question about specification for a Windows PC. My 10 year old desktop is giving up and constantly crashing, so I'm contemplating its replacement. What is a good specification that will run Affinity Photo with ease and speed. I've got a good monitor, so I'm thinking of a lap-top... Suggestions for spec and ideas on brand most welcome. Thank you.
  3. Hi, Gary, Fortunately, I retained the original free Google Nik collection .exe file as the DXO version (I downloaded for trial period) deleted my previous installed version of Nik Collection. So - although I'm not sure what a 'deep mole' is - I suspect that DXO is working to ensure that anyone who downloads for the trial period to test against the free version, is trapped into purchasing it, unless they have kept their original .exe file.
  4. Bums! Downloaded the trial with high hopes that it may have fixed the weird colour aberration thing in Viveza. Odd, because Viveza used to work fine inside Affinity Photo. Sadly, not the case now. Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1, Intel i5 650 @ 3.20 GHZ, 16GB DDR3, 1024 MB GeForce GT 320. So I'm reluctant to buy unless any one has found that the new DXO Nik collection includes some 'must have; can't live without' thing... OR, if anyone has found a solution to the colour error. I'd be very grateful either way. Thanks.

    Won’t launch

    Gosh! Thanks very, very much! That has worked perfectly.

    Won’t launch

    I've just updated my brand new iMac to High Sierra 10.13.3. I'm not certain that it's related, but Affinity Photo no longer works reliably. It either freezes on launch or freezes and closes on selecting Affinity>Preferences. AP had worked beautiful since installation and I had experienced no issues either installing or using the NIK plug ins. I needed to access Affinity>Preferences as NIK were no longer showing in Filters>Plugins. There are no photos on the HD (all on Western Digital 4TB EHD) and no indication on problems across the platform. Really miffed as this is a brand new Mac (my PC constantly crashes) and Affinity Photo is the only app installed so far. I have attached what I think is the error reporting log. I do hope that you can help. I now have Affinity Photo for PC (which seems to cause frequent crashes) and Affinity Photo for Mac - that seems to be doing the same thing. Many thanks in advance. iMac Error Log.spx
  7. Hi everyone. I've just signed up for the course and am looking forward to getting started. Thanks so very much, drippy cat! And Happy Christmas to everyone.

    Affinity Photo Customer Beta -

    Hello. Is it just me, or is anyone else experiencing download stopping for the latest Beta? I've double checked Internet connection, disabled Firewall and Internet Security and still all my attempts at downloading latest Beta result in stopping after the first 20 - 40 Mb have downloaded. Any suggestions, please?
  9. Hello, Chris_K and thanks for your reassurance! Just for the sake of trying, I exported a set of adjustments as a .3dl file and it worked perfectly. I tried with a few others and they are all exactly as intended. I've attached one in case it's any use... Thanks again. Autmn.3dl
  10. Hello. I'm wondering if - yet again - I'm doing something wrong. I've made some adjustments and saved as a LUT (Screen shot 'Adjustments applied'). When I copy and paste the adjustments to another photo, they are fine. When I load as a LUT, the resulting adjustment is nothing like what I thought I'd saved. The second screenshot 'LUT applied' shows the same image, with the original and saved adjustment layers disabledm, and the LUT applied. I've referred to the LUT tutorial video and double checked that I'm not doing anything wrong, but I probably still am... Thanks in advance.
  11. I am SO sorry. I had no idea that installing to the same folder could cause such a problem... All the time and effort you and ChrisK have put into sorting this for me: I do feel such a twit. Thank you so very much
  12. Installed to a new folder 'Affinity Beta' in the programme files folder. Installed again without requesting product key. Just loaded Beta with a NEF file, adjusted, sent to Photo persona - all working fine so far. Attached is the successful install: Affinity Beta (1).zip Affinity_Beta_(1).zip
  13. Confirmed: .xml file emailed. Affinity still 'invalid...'. Product key not requested on installation of both Beta versions since purchase. Yes, it is installed in the same Programme Folder as Affinity Trial and Affinity purchased. Good Grief! Of course I can... Brain pain. Attached. I'm now going to uninstall the latest Beta, restart my computer, run the Beta .ex file and install to a different folder. I'll let you know if that makes any difference. If it does, I'll zip and send. Affinity_Photo_Customer_Beta.zip
  14. Sorry, can't do rar - apparently my trial ran out years ago! Can I do zip, or do I have to pay for that...?
  15. Hello. Yes, I bought it online through the Affinity website. I have emailed file to you.
