  1. Can I use NIK filters as live filters like in PS where if you work on a smart layer, Nik shows as a smart filter.
  2. I have installed Nik plugins for the Mac version of Photo and my preview screen on opening any plugin has a horrible colour cast and desaturated image. Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, is there a solution. Please note that the same install has worked fine in Lightroom and Photoshop. Thanks, Peter
  3. AP has started crashing when I use either of the sharpening tools in the NIK collection. If I just go there, make an adjustment and then come back quickly, it's fine. But if I play with the sliders for a couple minutes, AP crashes. (There's a Windows message that says AP has stopped working.) I first noticed it a couple days ago and it happens every time if I give it just a minute or so. I use several of the NIK tools regularly and this only happens with the sharpeners. I'm using Windows 8.1 and AP 1.6.1.93. Is this a known problem? (I couldn't find any posts about it, but I also couldn't find any on the NeatImage crashes until I asked here and someone responded.)
  4. I can no longer access the various NIK programs after updating to V1.6. I entered them into Preferences - Plugins and they are listed in the Plugin search folder and "Allow unknown Plugins" is checked. The various NIK programs do not appear in the Detected Plugins window of the Preference panel. I've opened the Plugin folder and added the plugins by dragging & dropping but they do not appear in the Plugin list.They only appear in the Plugin folder list - I've listed both the folder location & the individual programs. When I select Plugins from the Filters drop down menu no NIK plugins appear. This was not a problem in V1.5.

    Nik disapears

    I Got Affinity photo for a couple of months now, without any problem. There is only a problem with the Nik-software. It disapear every couple of days. Re-installing without any problem but a few days later is gone again. Any solution?
  6. Hello everybody! First of all excuse me if my english is not very good, I am a not native speaker. The last day I planned to add the Google Nix Collection to my newly adquired Affinity Photo. But now I have a problem with the size of the window. Everything appears very, very small in it (although the window size is quite normal) and is very hard to me to see actons and words, and whatever inside the pannels. Could anybody help me, please? I urgently need to know how to resize that window(s) in order to see it(them) in a normal size! thanks a lot!
  7. 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
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  11. Will Nik and Colour Efects filters work with Affinity Photo? Thanks Neil
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. Can someone please give me a step by step to add NIK plugins, Ive downloaded but can not load install.
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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!
  21. Can I install Google Nik in Affinity Designer for Windows?
  22. 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.
  24. 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
