  1. I would love to see a moire filter for clothes and similar patterns to remove the rainbow and odd grids that are generated sometimes. This is one thing I miss that was in Lightroom.
  2. Anthropics Plugin's are NOW Working in the new beta. Thank You!

    Portrait Pro Plugin does not start

    How is my experience not valid? I too ran Portrait Pro V17 on earlier versions of Affinity Photo with no issues. I then had purchased V18 of Portrait Pro and had issues where it would lock up Affinity I then uninstalled it reinstalled V17 and proceeded to install V18 over the V17 install to my surprise it worked. As of version 1.7 of Affinity Photo all bets were off because it no longer worked, then they released V1.7.2 patch and it's been fixed, I now have full functionality to Portrait Pro V18 as a plugin. The problem is with Anthropics! they have changed something in the new version and all corespondents I've had with them have been in vain, they are not interested in Affinity Photo all they spit out is how it works with Photoshop!

    Plugin update with Beta -

    I've tried that and it had no effect. when I installed V18 to it's own folder it would not work, but when I reinstalled V17 and installed V18 to the V17 folder it worked so I left it there. I did try copying the .8bf files and a few other experiments but nothing worked so I just use it with V18 installed to the V17 folder. Weird?

    Portrait Pro Plugin does not start

    This has been an ongoing issue, see my earlier discussion. It seems to work if you purchased V18 as an upgrade (as I did) but if you are installing from scratch it just locks up. It may have something to do with a registry entry that has been changed from V17 to V18 of Portrait Pro this is only speculation. Anyway this is all on Anthropics and they really aren't interested in fixing it!

    Just shear laziness! I'm on Windows 10, If it works for me it probably is something very simple to change to get it to work for everyone else. I hope I don't need to reinstall anytime soon because I'll probably be in the same boat as I only really use Portrait Pro as a plugin from Affinity Photo for Portrait and Wedding shoots.

    Plugin update with Beta -

    I'm not sure what is going on with PortraitPro V18 as several people that I have seen aren't able to get it to work with Affinity Photo. The only thing that comes to mind is that when I purchased V18 it was an upgrade and I installed it over V17 (which always worked fine) and it works for me, this is only a guess. I would contact Anthropics and see what they have to say about the situation, Good Luck
  8. That is one thing I really like about Affinity Photo, the little extra resolution you squeeze out of our cameras!

    I'm currently at work but when I get home tonight I'll take a screen shot. You may need to reinstall your copy of v18 as it works perfectly fine on my Windows 10 machines (Desktop & Laptop) with the new Beta.

    When you are going to use the plugin do you have 2 selections under Anthropics "Portrait Pro" & Portrait Pro..."? make sure you are picking the one WITHOUT the three dots.

    Portrait Pro not opening

    I mentioned this a few days ago, they are aware of the issue along with a few other plugins that don't work now. They are working on a fix.
  15. Portrait Pro 18 & Landscape Pro 3 no longer work as plugins from Affinity Photo which used to work in 1.6.5. When either are used Affinity locks-up where it needs to be killed in Task manager. I know they are not supported plugins but as they are fairly popular I hope they are included as a supported plugins in the near future.

    Anthropics Plugins Broken in 1.7.0

    Would any kind of log file help? If so how and where do I find it?

    Anthropics Plugins Broken in 1.7.0

    Just to add the following plugins "ARE WORKING" for me in 1.7: StarFilter Pro 4, Topaz Studio, Topaz DeNoise AI & Sharpen AI
  19. Make sure you are in the Windows Beta forum. The latest Beta download will be around the top of the forum list.

    RAW Images Open Up Too Dark

    I've been suffering with this for over a year, but it seems to be fixed in the 1.7 update as the Beta shows much better results for me.

    Inpaint Problems

    Try rasterizing the layer first, then apply your inpaint to selection.
  22. Thanks for the clarification, any idea when the Windows 1.7 Beta will be released? I'm very excited at all the new improvements!
  23. I realize these updates came out, but most are bug fixes or very minimal changes with no fan fare. What I'm saying is communicate with the community better and give us a rudimentary roadmap (nothing set in stone) of major changes and tweaks that people will be exited about, this builds excitement. They've been very tight lipped about 1.7 for a very long time.
  24. Well I use a plug-in from the company ProDigital Software which works perfectly with Affinity Photo and I've see the developer asking if their Plug-ins could be included on Serif's list of working plug-in. To this day it's still not on the list and that was many months ago. I too am irritated at the lack of info coming out, You'd think they would want to maintain interest in their products.
