  1. hello all, anyone knows how to use the nik hdr efex pluing within affinity photo? in order to create a true hdr image, multiple exposures of the same pic are needed. the problem is, how can they passed simultaneously from affinity photo to the plugin? the plugins menu gets grayed if more than one layer is selected. this prevents passing more than one image to nik hdr efex. i only could use it outside AP until now, making it load multiple tiff or jpeg files. maybe i am missing something obvious... any suggestion would be appreciated. thanks, stefano
  2. The Nik collection has been sold to DxO, a french company that will allow the use of the current Collection for free if downloaded from their web site. Here is the link https://nikcollection.dxo.com A new collection to be reliesed inmid 2018. I assume at a cost. Any more news?
  3. iMac, High Sierra. Yesterday I installed Nik Filters, I made a photo in Black and White with Silver Efex Pro. Today I opened a color photo in AP and wanted to use Viveza 2, the filter opened in black and white! How come? Cees

    NIK plugins

    Interaction with NIK plugins is partially broken. Color profile is not included in data.
  5. Will Nik and Colour Efects filters work with Affinity Photo? Thanks Neil
  6. I know it's available as a plugin but, now that google have confirmed no more development of nik collection, what chance/ value in obtaining it to extend AP and/or to maintain the tools and perhaps tightly integrate? Seems to me to have value as a tool set, as a positive means to bring more users to AP, and makes business sense both to Serif and to Google (who can only otherwise disappoint current Nik users, of both the paid variety and those who got it for free) - why let it atrophy...... Regards.
  7. Hi, I recently installed the trial version of Affinity photo along with the google nik plugin. My issue is that when another user logs in and starts uses Affinity photo they have to re-add the plugin. Once the plugin is added for that user on that Mac they won't have to re-add it. We currently have 6 PC's with the trial version on and if multiple users use the application and move around it becomes quite a bit of hassle to re-add the plugin over and over. Is there anyway for the plugin to be added for every user that logs into that computer? Thanks, Will
  8. Hello All, I have to apologize for posting yet another NIK question, but I have been seeing all kinds of different takes on how it works and whether it works in Affinity and I'd like to understand if it is a work in progress or if this is it. I work in 16-bit and Prophoto RGB, and NIK Color Efex Pro colors (for instance) look terrible when I run it. I converted my document to 8 bit and no joy, the colors still look terrible. I finally converted my document to sRGB and the colors finally look correct. I have never had to do these conversions before. Do I have to do this conversion whenever I want to use the plug-ins? Is there any point in converting back to Prophoto 16-bit after I do this? Do I have to work in 8-bit sRGB to use these plug-ins? If anybody out there using a similar workflow has advice I would be very grateful! Affinity Photo 1.5.1.54 Windows
  9. I have been using NIK collection as plugins in AF for a while. A few months back, a problem appeared: after finishing editing in NIK and exporting back to AF, the image appears black. I have to save, close, and then reopen the .aphoto document to see the edited image. the problem still exists with the most recent AF version. I have an iMAC. OS 10.12.4. but the problem started back in December of 2016 when I had an older OS.
  10. Can someone please give me a step by step to add NIK plugins, Ive downloaded but can not load install.
  11. I uploaded the plugins and overtime I try to run the Nik Color Efex 4 plugin I get two screens that freeze. I have to force quit out of Affinity. Below is the screen shot of the double screens and also my preference settings.
  12. Good news for us ! Perhaps I'm not the fist one but I found the way to use all the plugins of the Nik Collection in Affinity Photo. After installing the Nik Collection by following tutorials, we all have the same problems : Viveza 2, Sharpener Pro 3, Dfine 2 et Selective Tool doesn't work. The problem come from the Windows format of the config file of each plugins. In fact, this file is a text file format with the .config extension. Analog Efex Pro 2 - natively works Color Efex Pro 4 - natively works Dfine 2 - you have to replace the Dfine2.config HDR Efex Pro 2 - natively works Sharpener Pro 3 - you have to replace the SHP3.config Silver Efex Pro 2 - natively works Viveza 2 - you have to replace the Viveza2.config (after a quick test, this one doesn't work very well, because of a color problem - I'm not enought competent to solve it) Selective Tool - can't works in AP because it's a sort of scripts panel to call Nik plugins with different ways - We could create similar actions with AP Macros. How and where replacing the .config files ? Go to the folder you create before installing the Nik collection / Google / In Dfine 2 folder > replace Dfine2.config (you have to login) In Sharpener Pro 3 folder > replace SHP3.config (you have to login) In Viveza 2 folder > replace Viveza2.config (you have to login) If you didn't erase the way to access to these plugins in AP's preferences, they works now. Enjoy it ! configs files.zip
  13. Hi, when I open a portrait in Nik-Collection (all filters), the image is shown across the landscape (like landscape). Image is not rotated. How can I change this. In PSE is shown correctly. Greets Dieter Hi, Nik-Collection new installed and now everything is correct. Can be closed or deleted, as no APh error. Thanks Dieter
  14. Hi all, I have problems in using the NIK collection plugins with Affinity Photo: They always run in demo mode and after 15 days, they can no longer be used, except as standalone applications. I have no other host application than Affinity Photo. Also I had no previous installation of an older version of NIK on my system. I downloaded version 1.2.11 a few weeks ago and installed it following to the video I found here. I created a folder /Applications/Photoshop plugins and added this in the host applications dialog of the NIK installer. In AP I added this folder as plugin folder, checked "allow unknown plugins" (or so, I have a German version running), and selected "authorise globally" using the root folder "/". I tried to uninstall and reinstall the plugins several times but I still could start them only in demo mode - or not at all after the trial period had ended. So I created a test user on my Mac to figure out, where the information about the trial period is stored. I found out that the period starts newly when I delete the content of the folder ~/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinityphoto/Data/Library/Application Support/Software. It is not enough to remove some of the contained files or folders; everything must be removed. After doing so, I can use the plugins again for 15 days. This is of course a bit annoying but a work-around. Now my question: Does anybody know what this folder is for? What could be lost when deleting it? If anyone has a better idea how to deal with this problem, I would be glad to read about. I know that many people can use the plugins without these silly license restrictions. If this is helpful: I first experienced the problem with AP 1.4.3. In the meanwhile, I use 1.5.1. Operating system is MacOS 10.12.1. I use German localisation. Many thanks!
  15. Can I install Google Nik in Affinity Designer for Windows?
  16. Will Nik plugins work with AP? I tried to use the plugin feature, within AP but doesn't seem to recognize it. Also, I'm using version 1.5 Beta!

    Plug-ins won't add

    I had the Nik collection installed for months and then today it was is they weren't installed. Under preferences and plug-ins there weren't any recognized plug-ins. I've tried redownloading and installing them again, I've even tried reinstalling Affinity. When I click "add" under plug-in search folders and choose the folder, nothing adds to the box. It remains blank. I've followed these instructions ( )%C2"> (the same I used when I installed months ago), but I still can't get anything to actually add to the plug-in search folders box.
  18. Hi, One thing that's great about LR and PS is the option to use 3PP plugins, such as those from Nik Collection (now Google and for free). Is there a plan to bring these into Affinity as well? Or would I have to bag Google for that? Thanks
  19. Has anone gotten NIK Photoshop plugins to work with Affinity? I've been trying to get SilverEffects to work but it won't even come up in the filter/plugins window. Help Please!
  20. I have recently installed Nik Software plug ins on Affinity. I have tried to use Silver Efex to turn a color image to B+W, and the tweaks I have made on Silver Efex have worked perfectly well - exactly the same as they did on Aperture, and on Photoshop Elements when the edited image in all its b+w glory appeared in each of these programs. However, when I try and leave Silver Efex to go back to Affinity when i have finished doing my alterations, the image on Affinity is exactly the same as when I started. There is no B+W image. So where is it, and how do i save it. I assume I should do this from Affinity as there is no way I can do so from the base at the top of the page with the Nik Software. Its probably something very simple, but HELP please!
  21. Hi, I am trying to use NIK collection as described in several posts. Installation runs and finishes properly, I can guide AP to the desired plugin folder, allow it the use of unknown plugins etc. Now comes the tricky part: I open an image and start filter -> plugins -> NIK Collection -> Analog Efex Pro 2. What happens now is best described this way: it seems the application NIK collection launches twice. First it launches in full screen mode and then in normal mode. I can see in the background that in full screen mode the image has been loaded, but not in the normal mode. And that is it. From here I cannot do anything but force-quit AP because no button will react on mouse clicks. Any hints?
  22. I'm using Affinity Photo 1.3.5 running on El Capitan and Nik Collection 1.2.11. Installing the Nik plugins works, but when I want to use them, I only get the demo splash screen (buy / demo). I have the full (paid) version installed and can use them as stand-alone apps or from within Aperture without problem. When I click on Demo (such as with Analog Efex 2.0.12.10) most of time time nothing happens and I need to force quit Affinity Photo (Affinity Photo then starts consuming 180% of CPU %). I wonder why the Nik plugins only start in Demo mode when called from within Affinity Photo. Are there any extra settings I need to change or any files I need to copy to somewhere? Thanks.
  23. I am a happy user of AP. The only thing not allowing me to stop using Photoshop is the plugin functionality. Is there any information when we can expect plugins to work, at least Nik collection, Topaz and Macphun. For me some of the Topaz plugin works but only once if I try them twice they will crash, also for the NIK some work some do not (and there seems to be a color difference from what I see within the plugin and the result being sent in to AP). I wish for on1 plugins but that may be more difficult if I understand correctly, but on a positive note the claim on their blog the they do not work with AP at the moment - maybe that will change. Bottom line, does anyone now the status of plugin support?
  24. Does Affinity have any live telephone tech support? Will it work with Nik Software plug-ins? Are there any books or manuals to instruct new users? Or is it simply online tutorials?
  25. I am trying to replace PhotoShop with Affinity and would love to be able to utilize the same programs as plug-ins in Affinity. Is there any list of what does work, and what will be working within Affinity? I have up-graded to Yosemite from Lion on my MAC Mini, so ther are a lot of things I need to upgrade and up-date and I am hoping Affinity is one of them. Michael McGuire, Atlanta GA
