  1. Hey all, Long time lurker til the last few weeks when I reinstalled the Publisher beta to check up on it - I understand that AFP is predominantly a page layout focussed system (and after reading all the ePub threads I see that's a bug-bear for many people and I suspect "Affinity Writer" might be a good direction/bridge but let's avoid that for now). I see that we can link/embed images so we can update the visual assets independently of the layout, but I've not seen anything similar for textual assets - which when writing more book/manual type content would be rather useful. Coming from the tech world (software developer primarily) what I'd love to see is something like the following (that may be doable with simple scripting if/when that comes available): Write my main content in a .txt file, or .md Markdown file - which is becoming a de facto markup format in the developer world Processor app/script that takes the markdown, and converts that to a AFP source - mapping the relevant heading 1/2/3, bullet point, body, code styles to AFP styles before including that in an initial text frame. Content appears in AFP rendered, with styles applied This would allow me update the .md files independent of page layout, using an editing environment more suited to writing content, running the document thru Grammarly/ProWritingAid. I guess this could all come under a "Writing" persona. Is this is a crazy idea, or something worth thinking about? 
  2. Hello, I upgraded to 1.7.0 yesterday and discovered today that all my plugins are gone. Mainly it was the NIK collection that I use. This happened with the last upgrade but at least i could see the items ghosted in the list but now the plugins menu doesn't open at all, its completely empty. Somehow I got them back the last time but this time I tried and nothing happens. I know the Google free version is still available. I went to DXO and followed their instructions to get the collection back but do not see the set appearing anywhere within the Affinity app. What to do? I think it would be appreciated that you provide a warning everytime there's a new upgrade that certain plugins, possible presets too, could be lost. I would have avoided the upgrade so that I could finish my work project without delays. Hopefully I can get back on track. I have been with Affinity since the beginning; a joy to work with, so clear and simple. I hope things can be smoother in the future when it's time for another new and improved version, without unexpected complications and headaches.
  3. Since upgrading the other night my various plugins dont work anymore. My Nik plugins work but Portrait Pro doesnt. What now. I can of course use it stand alone. But i cant select from the file menu.

    Using both 1.6 and 1.7

    Various people have pointed out that some plugins that now work in v1.6 no longer work in v1.7 beta. When v1.7 is finally released, will we be able to run the legacy v1.6 so as to be able to use these plugins? John
  5. 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?
  6. Hi, I recently purchased a X-Rite Color Checker Passport which offered a free Affinity Photo License, I have installed both but cannot find where or how to activate the color checker to import the ICC Camera profile or how to use it in Affinity Photo. I have looked through all the great instruction videos and FAQ's but can find no assistance or advice. If it would be possible to release a crib sheet or even an instructional video to help us use this awesome bit of kit with Affinity Photo it would be brilliant as the two would compliment each other in the pursuit of perfecting our compositions with less hassle and truer colour definitions and results. Thanks Very much and keep up the great work and videos.......
  7. One of my major interests in this app was the hope to get away from Adobe but to continue to use the plugins that I have spent a small fortune on. So far I have found that the only way to discover if a plugin will work is to try it and find that either this app crashes or the plugin that comes from other app causes a crash in both. This is really frustrating. If the plugins are not going toward or are incompatible or Serif has decided not to support it why not block the installation rather than allowing you to run anything and see if it is going to crash the app and ruin your work? I am enclosing a bunch of Crash Reports and a System study…hopefully I will be able to figure out wether my Affinity Photo 1.6.7 is the source of the crash directly or is it the plugin that is the guilty party and if there is any kind of a fix to be had. This is an issue that runs through the released versions and the beta versions. For Affinity.zip
  8. Bomb, bomb, bomb, virtually every plugin I try causes a crash. If there is not going to be an accurate way to determine if a plugin is going to function safely or not…why not create a piece of code that will block the install or accessibility to a plugin or group of plugins to keep the app from bombing, causing a loss of work, corruption of directories etc? If there is no way to have an educated way of determining the viability of a plugin, don't allow unknown plugins to be installed or recognized period. For Affinity.zip
  9. Just stumbled across this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1mOXZneX5s. Maybe someone could come up with something for Affinity Photo to compete with it. Just a thought. Thanks.
  10. Hi I just installed the new beta and gave it a bit of a whirl. so far the issues I`m seeing are as follows 1. using the square bracket keys to increase/decrease brush size is not working 2. redraw on blur, smudge etc brushes is very slow and resulted in a lock up 3.procedural texture needs sliders not equations. I can't figure out how to experiment with this at all! I suck at math and even simple algebra is very difficult for me but give sliders to visually experiment and this filter will become useful. as it is i can't use it at all. 4. Filter forge 7 works for me with the stable version but generates an error with the beta.
  11. How do I change the default directory from C to D for Photoshop plugins
  12. I have Affinity and when I try to send it to a plugin it becomes all washed out or the colors are wildly weird.. is there a certain color setting to fix this, I have uninstalled and no change..it does it in Topaz.. nik and all others.. except smartphoto editor.
  13. Hello there, I am currently on the 10-day trial of Affinity Photo testing the waters. I've been a long-time Photoshop and GIMP user, however I have recently become disgruntled with Photoshop and am looking for a powerful alternative. Affinity looks great in a lot of ways, however I came across something quite alarming. Affinity doesn't support ICO? Even the free open source Gimp can edit an ico file, why can't affinity? Will that support be coming soon? Is there a plugin that allows for ico's to be edited? Thanks! Jesse
  14. Will alien skin plugins ever be compatible with affinity photo?
  15. 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.
  16. I just downloaded the Affinity Photo trial and so far like what I see, but there is one little problem I encountered after installing the Nik plugins. I am still using the Google Nik version and have not upgraded to the DXO version (in case that may be a factor in the problem). All the plugins work well except for Viveza 2. When I go to that from Affinity Photo, there is a bad color shift in the image to the point that the plugin is not useful. Is there a way to correct that or is it because I am using the old Google Nik set and would have to upgrade to the DXO version, which I am not planning to do at this time. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks. Jim Lawrence

    Nik software

    I am running the old versions of my 27 ins iMac and have a colour cast when using them. The image just changes colour so they are us to use. is there away around this please. In vizvea the colours are way off... thanks
  18. I'm using AP 1.6.4.104, and have never had any problems with the software, but recently I've been getting occasional startup failures, where I receive the error message "could not load your settings - some settings may be incorrect". AP then loads in a minimised window, with the splash screen displayed (though I normally have it switched off). Both of these I can live with, but the most annoying effect is that all my plugins vanish from the Filters>Plugins menu, and have to be re-set. Has anyone else experienced this behaviour? I'm assuming there's an *.ini file somewhere that isn't being read correctly. Does anyone have a workaround for this so I don't have to remember and re-load all my plugins every time this happens? Many thanks
  19. On 1 makes Photoshop compatible plug-ins. I am trying to use these with Affinity Photo. 1. Go to Preferences=>Photoshop Plugins and add Plugin Search Folders. ---since the dialog box specifically mentions "Folders" can we assume that this is in contradistinction to "Files"? 2. On 1's Plugin Folders reside in Mac=>Applications=>ON 1 Photo 10. --each of the Plugins resides in its own subfolder. 2a. Add ON 1 Photo 10 Folder to "Plugin Search Folders" Box in Affinity Photo. 2b. Enable Root "/" in Plugin Support folders (though Plug-in Support is contained in On 1 Photo 10 Folder 2c. Select "Authorize Global." 2d. Select "Close" 3. Restart Program. Failure: Under Filters=>Plugins, no files appear. 4. Go to Preferences=>Photoshop Plugins and add Plugin Search Folders. 5. Add path to "On 1 Photo 10" subfolders where each plugin resides (MacHD=>Users=>XX=>Applications=>On 1 Photo 10=>Plugin Files 5a. Select Authorize Global; then Close 6. Restart Program. Failure: Under Filters=>Plugins, no files appear. 7. Go to Preferences=>Photoshop Plugins=>Open Default Folder in Finder 8. Go to Default Folder 8a. Copy *.plugin files from On 1 Plugins Folder 8b. Global Authorize 8c. Restart Program. 9. Failure: Under Filters=>Plugins, no files appear. (Allow unknown plugins is checked). So what am I doing wrong? I understand that an automated installation won't work in the absence of Photoshop. But these are Photoshop-compatible. They might work with Affinity Photo if I could get them installed. The trip down the rabbit hole following all these steps was unsuccessful What will work to INSTALL these, so that Affinity can see them? Does Affinity work with *.plugin files or is it looking only for folders, or...who knows???
  20. Hey. My plugins (Nik) disappeared after updating to the later Affinity Photo. I'm on iMac. I've tried going into preferences - Photoshop Plugins but obverting I've tried doesn't work. I have no idea what I'm doing lol! Any help would be appreciated thanks :-)
  21. My Nik plugins are greyed out on some images but not on others. I recently scanned some old B&W negs to JPEG images and was trying to use my installed Nik plugins in Affinity Photo but they are greyed out. Other JPEG images I have in my folders work fine and all the Nik plugins are available for both B&W and Colour images. It seems that all my recent scans will not work with Nik plugins. I presume I've done something wrong but I've no idea what that is. The only thing I've noticed that seems new is that when I open those problematic B&W scans in Affinity Photo I get a window with a message saying 'Assigned Profile - Affinity Photo assigned your working profile, (Greyscale D50) to this unprofiled document' which disappears after a short while. I don't really know what this means or if it's significant in relation to the Nik Plugins issue. Can anyone help? Thanks!
  22. I downloaded the trial version of AP and installed plugins as per instructions on the video. There was no problems and the software worked well. I paid for the full version and when I follow the same instructions as before, here is what I get: Edit-Preferences : there is no preferences under edit, its under the Affinity Photo not Edit Affinity Photo-Preferences : software totally crashes and shuts down. I cannot get the software set up to do anything further and so for now have requested a refund.
  23. 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
  24. What is the latest status on 3rd party Photoshop compatible Plugins & Affinity Photo? Is there a list?
  25. I have successfully installed the NIK Collection of plugins into Affinity Photo. However, when I click on them I get a dialogue box saying "the plugin can only be applied to the active layer. If you would like to apply the plugin to a separate layer, please check to make sure your application supports the NIK Selective Tool and that you are not working in a limited functionality mode such as the Quick Fix mode of Photoshop Elements." (Substitute the name of the plugin with the word "plugin" above.) Can anyone please tell me what I need to do to get NIK Collection to work? Thanks. Chuck
