    nik collection, affinity 1.7.0

    People should make the distinction between NIk for Affinity on MAC and Affinity on windows. When DxO came out with the upgrade version 1.1, they said that version 1.1 was now fully compatible with Affinity on MAC, but not on Widows. I use Windows and have no way of checking if that is true for MAC. Now they came out with another update with some minor changes, but nothing to write home about and it still does not fully work with Affinity for Windows. I Paid $50. for version 1.0 $50 for version1.1 (Stupid) and now they want another $60 for a minor upgrade. They can fool me once, but not twice. (3 times actually) That would be $160.00 for a plug-in that is still not fully compatible with my favorite editing software, which is crazy, so I am done with them and besides, there is very little NIK does that can't be done some other way, either within Affinity or with a more friendly plug-in. Even the NIK modules that do work, do not have all the features available on NIK for PS. Not sure why people care so much about NIK. Trust me, this feeling with NIK/DxO is not mutual. DxO was in bad financial distress last year, so now all they seem to care about is milking their (loyal I might add) customers
  2. rudyumans what does (RC1) mean?

    That sounds hopeful. Thanks!
  3. Just out of curiosity, what does the RC1 stands for? Is that a new milestone in the development of 1.7? I didn't see that before.

    Beta update?

    give these people a break
  5. If i change the blend mode in the recolor adjustment layer pop up from normal to e.g. soft light, it will not save it. It jumps back to normal. If I make an adjustment while in any other mode than normal, it will also jump back to normal. If I save the setting in normal mode (not by choice) and I change the blend mode then in the layers panel from normal to soft light and then go back to the recolor pop-up, everything is fine and I can make adjustments and save it without jumping it back to normal. Restarting the program makes no difference Yesterday i was recoloring an image and had about 10 recolor adjustment layers without problems. Layer number 11 was added and ended up below the background layer and I could not move it at all. I had to restart the program to make it work again. I had a similar problem with renaming a layer. Sometimes it let me and sometimes it doesn't. If it doesn't, I have to restart the program to make it work again thanks

    zoom frame in the navigator acts funny

    Sorry, I don't know how to record something. Never needed it so never looked for it. I use the slider, clicking and scrolling depending on my mood. It happens with all image sizes, but frankly that shouldn't make any difference with most images under normal circumstances and as long as the image is larger than the viewing area, which doesn't take much with my images. Many of my images are tiffs scanned at 2400 or more dpi for restorations. (reduced at export) I don't have this problem in If you can still see the whole image at 600%, it must have been the size of a postage stamp and none of my images are that small. It seems that I am not the only one with this issue. Thanks Ron for confirming.

    Images being rotated

    Hmm. I use several Topaz plug-ins (the old ones, non-studio), All of DxO's Nik, Corel's Particle shop, and some others and they all work fine. I don't encounter the same problem as you do. All the files are Tiffs or AP Do you have this only with Olympus RAW files?
  8. it seems that the zoom frame (not sure what you would call it) in the navigator panel (photo persona) has a mind of its own in beta Sometimes it works as it should, sometimes it decides to show up at 400% or 300% or anywhere, and sometimes not at all. It's like Forest Gump' s box of chocolate or AI gone rogue . Not sure

    Beta .188 Crop Presets

    I saw that, but just want to be sure they are consistent Walt

    Beta .188 Crop Presets

    I was thinking about that. Is still the latest as of this writing? Maybe "they" can add the version number with the link to the beta download in stead of just "Click here to download the latest beta" Easier to keep track and I don't have to ask dumb questions like this one.
  11. Russ2, do you even like Affinity? Just wondering.
  12. what version do you use? I had problems with the selection tool and other tools in version, which might have been because of the same problems you encounter. (Not sure) I went back to version and all problems disappeared. My CPU never uses more than 3-4% or so on AP (10-15% total with an I7 processor), no matter how complex the image or how big the colony of marching ants for a selection and not even when I have 5 -10 files open in AP Don't know if one is related to the other, but I am wondering though why you use such a huge amount of memory. Even with several other programs open, I rarely use half of what your computer consumed, and I have all kinds of programs running in the background. (some voluntarily, some not) Do you have a utility to clean up your computer, like from system mechanics, or Norton? I think I would close all the programs you can and see if the problem persists (process of elimination)
  13. Alrighty then. Thank you Dan!
  14. Hello Dan Your last remark is probably what happened since the inpainting tool brush had no smooth edges and was all jagged no matter what setting I used. To speak with the words of Steve Urkel, was it something I did? If the difference between *.* 123 and 135 is just installer based, should I try to re-instal it? But since everything works fine now, I could just leave it and wait for the next big update 1.6.7, that is supposed to come out in a couple of weeks I understand
