    nik collection, affinity 1.7.0

    Hi Meb, thank you for taking the effort to explain the details and the link to the video. I tried it with Nik2018 and it did not make a difference (still showing updating fonts) issue BUT with Nik2 it does work as you had stated. much appreciated, now back to photo taking and editing

    nik collection, affinity 1.7.0

    Hi Meb, thank you for your post. Unfortunately it does not work for me with Nik2. Just downloaded the Nik2 trail version and have exactly the same issue "updating fonts", attached screenshot showing I am using Affinity 1.7, mojave and I guess there is no way to see it is the Nik2 I am running... Tried also with silverfexpro with same results a shame..will have to use Nik as a separate application until a ture solution might be available.

    nik collection, affinity 1.7.0

    FxRphoto, can you please help in understanding how come NIK works perfectly for you? What operating system are you using? Is there anything else you have done to get it to work? How come you don't seem to have the "updating fonts" message that so many of us have and that makes Affinity crash? As for NIK 2018 and NIK 2 here is what DXO support had told me: "I do apologize, but as Affinity is not a certified host software, we cannot provide support for that combination. This does include Nik Collection 2 as well." So what is the reason Nik2 will work better than Nik2018 according to your findings? thx

    Hi Steve, I am surprised this works for you on 1.7. It of course was the way to make it work for 1.6.7 and Dam did a great job describing the details (I also recommend all his Affinity tutorials and marcos). Do you use Mac, if yes what version are you running? thanks

    nik collection, affinity 1.7.0

    to add to Steven's comments (and the many other that have been posted around this issue) I make much use of the combination mac Photos->Affinity Photo->NIK (now from DXO). With 1.6.7 it worked well. I contacted DXO and their response was: "the combination of Nik Collection 2018 and Affinity Photo is not officially supported" I was curious if the new NIK version (Nik2) would work and DXO responded: "I do apologize, but as Affinity is not a certified host software, we cannot provide support for that combination. This does include Nik Collection 2 as well." the question is why Affinity is not been supported by Nik and if perhaps enough Affinity users need to express their needs/requirements to find a work around? (besides using NIK as a stand alone app?)
  6. thank you Patrick! Yes using the mac appstore instead to upgrade the Affinity Photo solved the problem (that is not recognizing the license)!
  7. Thx Leigh for getting back too me, will be away intil Wednesday and get back to you by then. With PM you mean private message Isuppose, can you kindly tell me how to do that in this forum? Cheers
  8. I am a happy Affinity Photo user and own a paid 1.6.7 license. Have tied 3 times to download the new 1.7 release and every time get the same error message attached below (stating my e-mail or product key is wrong). What am I doing wrong. I am logging into store.serif.com as an exciting customer, go to get my download link and download the dmg file. When I start affinity 1.7 I enter the same e-mail and the download number By hand, paste have tried it all) but it gives me the error message. Please help since I am very eager to use 1.7 iMAC 27 late 2015 , macOS 10.14.4, Affinity Photo Desktop 1.7 thank you!
  9. Thanks for the responses. Let me re-frame my question with a simple example: How to I apply e.g. Detail Refinement to a batch of raw photos? there must be a way to do this since it is such a common a basic task, is it not?
  10. Thanks for your response "firstdefence". I am using macOS 10.13.5 and Affinity 1.6.7. What substitute app do you use (or might recommend) to convert raw files in a batch while being able to define ahead of time some key aspects for the conversion?
  11. Hi, I am trying to batch process a set of files. I like to convert RAW files to TIFF and be able to set various pre-recorded (marco) parameter that are available in the development persona (things like Development Assistant and basic,lens,details,tones) My challenge is that I cannot see how I can record a macro under the development persona. I know how to do it under Photo persona (->view ->studio ->macros) but cannot see how to record the parameters I want to control in development persona (only not Photo persona) and then run onto a batch of files. Under Development Persona if you go to ->view ->studio there is no macros options. An actual example would be much appreciated thank you Arnim
  12. Hi Dan, thank you for looking into it and your complete answers and suggestions. Seems from what you say I be best off increasing my RAM which I will do. cheers Arnim
  13. Hi Dan, thank you for your fast response. Very impressive! My excitement about this product is high and I have deeply enjoyed watching the excellent tutorials. To your questions: . to import 100 raw pictures (from the D7500) from the SD memory in my imac takes about 1 minute in Apple Photos 3.0. To import 10 raw files (from my hard disk) to Affinity development takes about 2 minutes. So about 20 times slower. See first screenshot. . once all 10 raw files are in Affinity it takes about 5 seconds for split view to fill the other half. See second screenshot . to develop one raw picture takes about 16 seconds. See last screenshot hope between the 3 screenshots you have the info that could help identify why it is slow. much appreciate your assistance, in the meantime I am off to watch more tutorials! thanks Arnim
  14. Hi, just downloaded photo 1.6.7 on imac 10.13.3 retina 5k, 27 inch late 2015 3.3Ghz intel core i5, 8 GB Radeon R9 2GB Checked with activity monitor and nothing of significance is going, affinity takes all all % CPU. But something must be wrong, or not? I carefully looked at all feedback on line before buying this app but it is completely unusable at this speed. Apple Photos, Adobe Photoshop when started separately work well and fast. Much appreciate some help! Was so much looking forward to this software... )-: thanks Arnim
