  1. Gosh! Thanks very, very much! That has worked perfectly.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. Sorry, can't do rar - apparently my trial ran out years ago! Can I do zip, or do I have to pay for that...?
  11. Hello. Yes, I bought it online through the Affinity website. I have emailed file to you.
  12. OK, I've found it! Please ignore screen shot, which I added before I rooted around manually, having enable view hidden folders... How do I zip a folder? I can add to "1 (Betta) .rar" - is that the same thing? Sorry to be a dilly at computers, but I'm rather good at cooking!
  13. Um... I'm afraid you've lost me after 'Hi Lubiloo'... Sorry, but how do I get to %appdata etc...? I've tried to search...; Sorry
  14. Hello IanSG, and thank you for trying to help me out on this. I've reinstalled ACDSee (after my temper tantrum) and seem to be getting along with that so far. I've adjusted the preferences in XNView MP as you suggested and it is now displaying AP files. Thanks again. I'm going to give XNViewMP a thorough go now. I'm yet to work out the search thing, but I'll persist.
  15. Hello, I've just installed the latest Beta for Windows It installed smoothly but, like the previous Beta installation, did not require my entering my purchased product key. However, having crashed on first use adjusting curves in Develop persona, I restarted the Beta and received 'Invalid Product Key!' banner. This precludes access to Help menu, so I'm unable to enter a product key. Anyone else? Any suggestions? Thanks
