  1. I have Affinity photo latest v of 1.8 and DxO labs / nik collection 3.0 What are the proper steps / How do i create a smart object using Nik filter in Photoshop Elements so i can re-edit the Nik Fillter in Affinity Photo? I assume the smart object has to be created in a photoshop like app. What I've done so far - Opened a raw file in Elements 2019 - Applied a Nik filter (say Analog - Camera 4) - Saved the file as a PSD file - Dragged (not open) the psd file to the affinity photo software - blank page - I selected the layer, then Affinity filter - Nik - Analog - The Nik app opens for further editing but the the settings are not the same as the Camera 4 (or any filter preset) but is close. I can re-apply stuff and/or perform further edits - But it is not the same as double clicking the nik filter layer and re-edit the exact same preset settings w/in the Nik filter tool the 1st time around; Doing a Nik filter in Affinity photo and re-selecting for edit does similar behavior - The goal is to re-edit the exact same nik filter settings again (e.g., i want to make some subtle changes based on the print) - Since Affinity Photo 1.8 supports smart objects and since all of the Nik webinars show doubling clicking the Photoshop Nik filter as a smart object to make changes to the existing applied Nik filter, there has to be a way to do similar (re-edit the same Nik Filter settings) in Affinity Photo .. whether i have to use a photoshop tool ish (elements) or something else to get this to work
  2. The nik collection 2.5 filters work fine; However, how does one go back from affinity photo into the existing filters that you just used to do some further editing to the filters you just applied/edited with? I double click on the filter layer (that contains the nik filter applied) and nothing happens. If i select the layer and then Filters - Nik it basically starts blank and doesn't recognize/show all of the nik filters applied previously in that layer.
  3. I cannot get my print to canon to fit to page size. I'm printing 13x19 canon luster and it won't fit or scale to fit the page. In elements 11 I can get this to auto size and fit the 13x19 without issue. How do we get this to work in affinity photo
