  1. OK so I bought version 2 yesterday, removed version 1 before install, everything fine until I tried to use my Topaz plugins. Probably been answered before among the hundreds of WHY questions but!! Although the plugins show up under filters that's it!!! cannot use as greyed out, see images. Now remember here I am just an armature photographer who wants to process images not a computer geek. Thankyou
  2. Is that not what my image shows? AffinityPhoto2.exe Thank you
  3. Hi, just downloaded the trial version of V2 but cannot find the installed folder on Windows C drive Program Files. I use Faststone viewer as a DAM and need to place a shortcut in there to open an image into Affinity. I did uninstall version 1 first. I found this If you're looking to access Affinity V2 from another app on Windows - for example, using Affinity Photo V2 as an External Editor in Raw Therapee, you will need to point to the app's execution alias. They can be found here (assuming default installation location): Affinity Photo V2: C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps\AffinityPhoto2.exe but does not work, Thank you, Russ.
  4. If your serious about printing then look at Qimage, easy to use does what it says on the tin. Russ. http://www.ddisoftware.com/qimage-u/
  5. Don't hold your breath, has been FOUR years since this was requested, remember June 2016?
  6. Hi, I gave up on Photoshop at version 6 after it went subscription mode. I have tried Affinity Photo in the hope it would be somewhat like P/S but there are a lot of things that A/P is missing and yes I no it is a lot cheaper than Adobe but the options to use 3rd party plugins falls a long way behind, there is no A/P like Lightroom option available (I still hold on to L/R 6), small things such as camera profiles although requested for a long time is not available. I would suggest you download the trial of A/P first and make up your own mind. As you need a system to review images I would suggest to keep Lightroom if you have it or take a look at On1 photo RAW although still IMO not as good as L/R. Russ.
  7. Thankyou for your reply. Not new to photography just now turned to photographing birds as the legs are not as young as they used to be. When I look at some of the images online they put mine to shame with how vibrant they look so was just looking for some tips and hints. I no like all photography light is the thing but sometimes you don't always get that and that is when I find my images suffer some what. I live in a place where most of the year we have very harsh sunlight (Rhodes Greece) and it is hard to get that light right in camera.
  8. Hi, Are there any recent videos on working on bird/wildlife images within Affinity Photo? Looked on Youtube but nothing in recent times. Thankyou.
  9. See how fast you dissapear down this list on this forum? I waited also for an option to use the CCP in Affinity Photo but gave up and purchased ON1 Photo RAW 2020 but they also took for ever to implement an option for the CCP in that, if you can find an older copy of Lightroom that has an option to create profiles with the CCP. Russ
  10. Hi, Anyone no of a Green Screen Software that will work as a plug-in from AP on Windows? Thankyou. Russ.
  11. Hi, Lucky you did not request it in On1 Photo raw as I and many others did over 4 years ago, yes that's 4 years!! And now to be offered it up only if you upgrade to the 2020 version, it is the main reason I kept hold of Lightroom 6 and now dumped On1 software. It is available in Skylum Luminar also (Camera colour profiles). Russ.
  12. As can be scene not a lot. http://www.miguelboto.com/affinity/photo/plugins-support/win/
  13. Hi, I installed the macro from the download link at the start of this posting as I could not find one that was an update mentioned in a previous postings. I have everything showing except the option of Reset Blend Option, has this been removed from the set now please? Thankyou, Russ.
  14. Hi, I don't suppose there is a way you could offer ALL the videos as a download? I use a computer not connected to the net for all my image work and I would like to follow the tutorials on offer, if I could download them I would be able to play on an additional monitor along side my work station. Thank you. PS. yes there is a way to download from Youtube but on last view there are some 69 videos
  15. Hi, OK I also own Skylums Luminar Flex (A now FREE plugin for Lightroom) and if I wish to export an image from L/R I can go to Plug In Extras/Transfer to/Luminar Flex/ and it will open the image as a RAW file not a TIFF file that Affinity offers via the Lightroom option of Photo/Edit in/Photo.exe (Affinity Photo), Affinty does not seem to offer the option of Transfer to ???? I use the camera profiles option from Lightroom (Have profiles for both my cameras with certain lenses) And I beleive that RAW files retain ALL the information when transfered from Lightroom to another out source software. Tankyou, Russ.
  16. Hi, Is it possible to export RAW files from L/R to AP? If no will it be available in the future? Thankyou.
  17. Hi, thankyou for your reply. Yes I no AP already has LM's and like the video you can make your own luminosity channels but luminosity panels like those offered from RAYA PRO and Lumenzia give a much greater scope and are much faster to get where you want to be. Again thankyou for your reply. Russ.
  18. Hi, Just watched a very good video on Luminosity Masks in AP Kind of as we made them in Photoshop and just wondering if anyone out there is looking at creating a plugin for LM's in AP as there are for Photoshop ie. RAY PRO, Lumenzia etc etc. I used PS CS6 some time ago now but left Adobe behind on the subscription idea. I have other softwares that have LM's but the plug ins are much more intense giving far more options along the way. Thankyou. Russ.
  19. Hi, Now I may have missed it in the latest update offered but I still do not see any option to create Custom Colour Profiles with the X-Rite Colorchecker an option that has been requested now for some time and answered back in January 2016 QUOTE:- " DCP profile support is on our radar - we hope to get it implemented some time soon. Sorry I can't be any more specific! " or read the whole post As you can see in that answer it uses the word SOON so three years later??????
  20. Topaz yes very good and work as a plug-in for AP http://www.miguelboto.com/affinity/photo/plugins-support/win/ Franzis!! I bought there HDR projects and less than a year later they released a new version with no free upgrade for owners and never hear from them on updates etc not one of the best I have ever delt with. Russ.
