  1. Thanks, Angela, I'm here and reading. And unfortunately at this point we can do little about the issue.

    Hi, yes, Filter Forge works fine after you install it manually. Please, pay attention that the progress bar does not work in AP. Just wait for the result and it will appear. If you have any questions or need help, please write us here or (better and faster) via https://www.filterforge.com/contact/
  3. And here's how to install Filter Forge 7 or 8 on AP 1.7.1 on Windows. Note you can do it only manually now cause unfortunately we can't get the answer from the nicest guy Mark Ingram since the version 1.6 1. Open C:\Program Files\Filter Forge 8\Plugin\x64 . 2. Copy there both files: right-click and Copy (or Ctrl+C). 3. Open AP and go to Edit -> Preferences -> Photoshop Plugins. 4. Click on the "Open Default Folder in Explorer..." and paste there two files from the Clipboard using right-click and Paste (or Ctrl+P). 5. Then open "Filter Forge.config" file in NotePad and change the IndependentUI value="false"/> to IndependentUI value="true"/>. Save changes (Ctrl+S). 6. Tick the Allow Unknown Plugins. 5. Close Preferences and Restart Affinity Photo manually. 6. Now you can find Filter Forge 7 or 8 in the Filters -> Plugins -> Filter Forge and use it. NOTE! Progress bar is still not working, so if you render a large image or the filter has complex structure, please wait. Fitler Forge is not frozen, it works.

  5. We're trying to contact AP developers to fix the problem. Hopw they'll answer us soon and we'll be able to make Filter Forge work under AP again. Meanwhile we suggest to work with Filter Forge in a standalone mode and use copy and paste feature to drag images to and from AP.

    It is amazing to read such a feedback: Thank you. AND while our developers try to solve this official support problem with Serif, there's one nice and simple workaround: copy and paste to use FF and AP together.

    In AP version 1.6.5.123 selection doesn't work properly. It gives Filter Forge wrong info and we can't work with it. So you can use Filter Forge without selections right now, and we hope we'll be able to contact the AP developers to fix this issue.

    Hi Andreas, Thank you for the screencast. I'll pass it to our tester. I'll be here with an answer in a while.
  9. This bug is connected with the FF's plugin mode. It means that FF can't work as a plugin with AP. The possible ways out: 1. Updating AP. In the newest version Filter Forge works fine as far as we know. 2. Reinstalling Filter Forge. 3. Installing Filter Forge as a plugin maually. (Please, try the previous two options first, if they fail, I'll give you full guide on how to install FF manually.)

    Mark is right. There are no progress bar in Filter Forge as a AP plugin. That is why you should just wait to see the result. NOTE! Some filters can be slow especially on the hi-res images.
  11. Hi, I'm here. I've answered John personally and will leave a synopsis here: To comment on the filter you need to 1) click on the Comments link, 2) login, 3) write a comment and post it.

    Did you check the "Allow Unknown plugins to be used" box? I can suggest that you should try to restart your computer after doing all these things.

    HOW TO install Filter Forge 6.0 or 7.0 into Affinity Photo 1.6.1 Beta (Windows) 1. Close Affinity Photo. 2. Open C:\Program files\Filter Forge 7.0\Plugin and copy both files (FilterForge.config and the second one). 3. Open C:\ProgramData\Affinity\Photo\1.0 (Beta)\Plugins and paste the files there. 4. Open FilterForge.config file and change false to true in the 4th line. The result should be like this: IndependentUI value="true"/> 5. Open Affinity Photo. Go to Edit -> Preferences -> Photoshop Plugins and check the "Allow Unknown plugins to be used". Now Filter Forge is installed and should work fine!
  14. Now FF supports AP 1.6.1. Still Filter Forge cannot install automatically into Beta version, that's why you'll need to install it manually. If you need an instruction, I can post it here.

    Note that Filter Forge can't automatically install into Beta, so you'll need to install it manually. If you need an instruction on how to do this, I can place it here.
