  1. Why does the plugin search window NOT have an option to search sub-directories? Every other graphics programme I have ever used has this features as it obviously saves moving numerous files out of neatly arranged sub-directories into one big one. Not a very sensible omission. Please provide this options in update. Thanks :) Richard
  2. http://www.miguelboto.com/affinity/photo/plugins-support/ is the page which leads to the list of plugins tested with and deemed "compatible", "not compatible" or "untested" with AP for either Windows or MAC. Having just checked this again on my own computer I'd like to draw MEB's attention to the fact that ABSoft's "NeatImage 8" DOES work in AP for Windows, both release and latest beta versions. I know this is a very popular plugin for the removal of image noise; perhaps would-be purchasers of AP might be somewhat hesitant to commit to the software if they are regular users of NeatImage? Jeff
  3. According to the page which MEB created, listing the PS plugins that AP can see and use, Vertus Fluid Mask 3 should be "available". For me, it is not, using AP for Windows. Preferences>Photoshop Plugins does not even list it though it is stored in the same folder as all my other plugins which I use/have used in PhotoPlus X8. Any suggestions? TIA. Jeff
  4. Hello, and thank you for Affinity Photo; the world needs more alternatives to you-know-what and Affinity has some great features. Some observations about plugins, some may have been mentioned before. The plugin image preview is not color managed, making it difficult to adjust color. Dropdowns on the plugin UI (with FilterMeister plugins anyway) only show two menu items; the arrow keys must be used to scroll down. I do not see a progress bar after the filter is displayed. And I have had two crashes so far on opening plugins, which previously opened. Here are some plugins to work with at http://www.russellcottrell.com/photo/RCFilters.htm The curves dialog needs to show the input and output values for the selected point. This is especially important for the center point of Lab’s a and b curves. Also, could HSB/HSL mode be added? Congratulations on the HDR merge feature; the .exr output file is the highest quality that I have seen, much better than that of the well-known HDR programs. When merging .tifs (rather that raw files so the camera .dcp profile can be applied first), all other programs that I have tried produce very noisy shadows, often unusable, when opened in applications such as SNS-HDR. (Nothing against your tone-mapping per se but SNS-HDR is the best.) The Affinity .exr’s are high-quality, fully usable. But I have run into a few problems; several of the images I merged had artifacts, little vertical colored lines in the output. And the output files do not look the same when trying to merge them into a panorama with PTGui; the exposure and color balance vary, even with images identically exposed and raw processed (in RawTherapee). I don’t know if this is inevitable or not; I have not had images of this high quality to work with before. Also, could the New HDR Merge dialog save the last used settings (alignment, ghosts, noise reduction, tone map)? Lastly, being able to export files as .psb would be useful. Thank you again . . . . —Russell
  5. Here's a blog post I just wrote about using Darktable with Affinity Photo and the Google Nik Collection. http://bit.ly/2iaNDSS Happy Holidays! Stephen:)
  6. I have the plugin AKVIS Nature art on Seriff Photoplus X8. Can this be added to the Plugins on Affinity and if so How
  7. I don't know if this should be here or in Feature Requests, so by all means move it to whichever is correct. In any case, I was wondering if there were any plans to add support for plugins in Affinity Designer (as has been done in Photo). If so, will you focus on existing Adobe Illustrator plugins or on plugins designed for Designer? I also have a question concerning the nature of plugin support (both as it is now and in the future), which is why I elected to post this under "Questions" rather than requests. Are there (or will there someday be) plugins designed for Affinity, or is the feature meant specifically for supporting Adobe's plugins? Is it possible to create plugins specifically for use in Affinity Photo?
  8. I'd love to see support for Peltmade's Flatten Pro and Multifill Plugins. Those two would go a long way toward making this a go-to program for comic book and illustration work. Thanks!

    Plugins issue

    Did the plugin issue I previously reported about an editable transparency get fixed in the official release? Did you touch base with Alien Skin? I remember another user had the exact same issue using Topaz plugins. It's ok if they don't work now, I just want to know (before I purchase) and hear your commitment on making sure all/most PS plugins will work. Alien Skin (Eye Candy and Image Doctor are the ones I care about) is especially important to me - Eye Candy is a must have! Other nice-to-have plugins I use include Vertus (Fluid Mask), Power Retouche, NIK Collection (free from Google now and very close to a must have) and dsb Flux. Rob->
  10. Can I install Google Nik in Affinity Designer for Windows?
  11. In the "Help" window I see among the Key features that Affinity Designer has support for plugins. Can I plugin the Google Nik collection? And if I can, how do I do it? Rgs /Ernie W
  12. For Gimp, there's a cool script available that is called Shellout: http://registry.gimp.org/node/24977 This python script will call an external program, providing the active layer or a new from visible layer to this external program via a temp file. Once the external program is completed, it should save/overwrite the original temp file which gets pulled back into gimp. This is extremely useful to use standalone versions of plugins that don't work correctly via the Photoshop Plugin Import in Affinity Photo, for example, some plugins of the Nik Collection. It would be really useful to have such a "Send to standalone and Back after editing"-function, especially if you have some programs that aren't available as plugins but want to keep your workflow efficient.
  13. Does Affinity Designer support photoshop plugins?
  14. I have been following the plugin installation instructions and I can see the plugins from NIKEFEX that I want to use when I use the filters menu chain, but non of them will open. The preferences - photoshop plugins- window was used to set the directories, and the use use unknown plugins box is checked. Is this a bug or a function of Beta release?
  15. 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!
  16. Firstly, a apologize for my multitude of questions; although I do have some experience with using Affinity and applications like it, there are some aspects of which I have virtually no knowledge. I was wondering if someone could tell me about how Affinity works with Plugins and/or how scripting might work if it's added in the future. What are some examples of what one could do with scripting? How big a deal is it to make a plugin for a particular feature that isn't in Affinity? It says in the preferences that plugins have something to do with Photoshop; could someone please explain how this works? And finally: is there anything else that I should know about these features that I haven't thought of?
  17. [starting a new topic because searching the forums produces scattered, incomplete, and contradictory notions of installation and use information.] Are there, somewhere, in one place, clear instructions on installing and troubleshooting plugins in AP? Specifically interested in NIK Collection and their use in AP (is there some version that works and some that don't? Incompatible OS versions? Mac Win?) The implication seems to be that they work in AP, but they don't seem to work for me (Do they work only from a certain folder? Do some obscure permissions need to be set? What is and what are the implications of a "plugin support folder" versus a "plugin search folder?" What is and what are the implications of "global support?") If I can get them to work, is there a non-destructive way (reversible/editable) to use NIK tools in AP? As for myself, I have downloaded the free version of NIK Collection from Google and am running a Mac on El Cap (10.11.5) with AP (v 1.4.2) purchased via the Apple App Store. Thanks
  18. If I want to compare the original end edited photo (in Photos app with any Affinity Photo plugin), the preview slice shows very pixel image and I can't really compare them. I created a screenshot to show what I'm meaning. This image is'nt edited, so I only checked the Preview checkbox.
  19. 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!
  20. I have found a few free plugin filters for Apple Photos but when I try to set them up in Affinity Photo they do not work. I have gone into Preferences and done the necessary set up to get them to work but they do not seem to work with Affinity Photo. One set of these freebies is by On1 Effects and the other one is by Macphun Creative Kit. Any suggestions to how to get them to work and if they don't any idea when they will? I really like using Affinity Photo but in my opinion the most important update feature they need to work on is getting photoshop plugins to work with Affinity Photo. Once they do this Affinity Photo will truly be a serious competitor for Photoshop.
  21. Is Affinity Photo's plugin support solely based on how well the devs can crack each individual plugin's code and then it be deemed supported? Sorry if I am not making sense. Would there ever be a time when plugin companies would write them for Affinity Photo or is the future of AP plugin support based on how well we COPY PS plugin architecture? Being that Affinity Photo is about to blow up with supporters in masses, won't they come a knockin? How does this all work for the benefit of AP's users coming onboard?
  22. Hi there, I am creating a morale patch design (2 in x 3 in) for the first time in Affinity Designer that will eventually be embroidered. I noticed for Adobe Illustrator there's an embroidery plugin available to ensure your design is suited for an embroidery machine. Is there a similar plugin we can use for Affinity Designer? Also, how large does the border width need to be in my design? I haven't found any answers online and hope you can be of help.
  23. Photoshop Plugins: Most do not work or perform wrong function: I went to the plugins section in the preferences section. I added PS CS6 program under plugin search folder. I added \ as the path by selecting my mac hard drive. Am I missing something?
  24. I am making a determined effort to wean myself off of Adobe Creative Cloud, (Lightroom & Photoshop) and replace them with Affinity Photo but I am worried about losing the ability to use Photoshop plugins, (Nik & Topaz Collections) if I unsubscribe from Adobe Creative Cloud. Am I right to assume that if I do unsubscribe from CC it will not affect my usage of the plugins in Affinity Photo? Many thanks for advice. Andrew-Bede
  25. Google has just announced that their Google Nik Collection composed of seven Photoshop plug-ins is now free for everyone. Click here for more details. You can download them from here. Currently Analog Efex Pro 2, Color Efex Pro 4, Silver Efex Pro 2 work with Affinity Photo. HDR Efex Pro 2 only works partially.
