  1. What is the latest status on 3rd party Photoshop compatible Plugins & Affinity Photo? Is there a list?
  2. 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
  3. If like me, you are not that switched on when it comes to configuring Topaz plugins for use on a Mac look at this article in the Topaz forum: http://discuss.topazlabs.com/t/topaz-plugins-with-affinity-on-osx/3850/6?u=nick
  4. 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.
  5. Is anyone having problems with Preferences? Mine won't open, all it does is close the app Affinity Photo on a Mac! Would love to install my Plugins!
  6. Hi all, has anyone been able to add Topaz plugins to Photo?
  7. Flaming Pear's Flood -- There is some slight improvement over the current official release, but Beta 5 still does not render application of the plugin correctly. Topaz Labs -- B&W Effects, Clarity, Clean, Detail and Star Effects work correctly in my tests. However, plugins which Topaz has recently upgraded, do not work in Beta 5. I used PhotoLine 20 as my non-Photoshop control editor. That app runs all of the above-referenced plugins. Bob
  8. Hi, I’m the author of the Flaming Pear plug-ins. Recently, customers have asked for support for Affinity Photo. It appears the plug-ins don’t quite work correctly because Affinity often misreports the pixel format. In particular, - the FilterRecord’s filterCase field always contains the undefined value zero - four-plane RGB+A data is reported as just three planes. So plug-ins are unable to access the alpha channel, which, upon exit, is full of garbage values. I’ve attached a document summarizing how Photoshop and Affinity report the pixel data differently. If this could be fixed, it would likely repair the compatibility problem with many vendors' plug-ins. Affinity Photo alpha channel reporting bug.pdf -Lloyd Burchill
  9. I am new to Affinity Photo. I was pleased to see that it was possible to use Topaz plugins. However I cannot workout how to get Affinity to recognise where they are. I have followed the Help topic and looked on this forum but am not getting anywhere. I have Photoshop CS5 (which is where I looked for the plugins.) I am using a PC with Windows 10 I am aware that using these plugins is a work in progress. It is a bonus I was not expecting. I suspect I am missing something obvious in the instructions so help would be appreciated I have attached a screenshot of the position I have reached. I hope it helps
  10. Out of curiosity, I've dug out Version 3 of Knoll Light Factory, that was originally supplied with a Serif Photoplus bundle. Although it's installed, Affinity Photo doesn't recognise the plugin. Does anyone know if it's compatible with AP, and if so, how did you get it to work? (All my other plugins Like Nik Collection and Topaz Labs work fine) Thanks
  11. Just downloaded the beta and I was wondering what plugins will work? Also will any Photoshop Extensions work?
  12. Would it be possible to install and use a plugin called Focus Magic64.
  13. What is the chance our existing plugins like NIK and Topaz can be accessed through Affinity?? Hate to leave those behind!!! Thanks TL
  14. With the extortion experts Adobe screwing users of Creative (Accounting) Cloud with its revised pricing 20 to 50 percent, never has there been a greater need for a competitive alternative. Affinity comes nearest but shows no enthusiasm for closing the gap. When will it address the problems around plugins on Mac, or support Photoshop Actions, or have a file organiser, or make headway into reducing its gigantic file sizes? Solve these and you could have the world beating a path to your doorstep.
  15. Affinity Photo Beta 1.6.0.71 1. Open new image 2. Duplicate Background 3. From Document menu verify that Transparency Background is checked 4. Attempt to start Topaz ReMask 5 from the plugins menu 5. Topaz returns: Transparency is locked, please unlock the transparency.
  16. HI, I noticed that there were no plugins anymore. I use NIK and some macphun plugins. Checking my settings in the preferences/plugins I saw nothing was set anymore. But when I clicked the fields they could be selected but nothing was in them not even the front slash????? I tried alt+cmd for throwing away preferences but this doesn't work. Any ideas? Cheers Marco
  17. Hi: Pixelsquid has a plug-in for Photoshop which allows the import of 3d objects to be rotated within the scene. Just wondering if Affinity has considered contacting PixelSquid to create a plug-in for both Affinity Photo and Designer for both operating systems?
  18. 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.
  19. Hello, when you take the competition serious then you should open your apps for plugins and another services like invision. This is the future. When we make web design we need to present it like a real website. Mokups are very common and important. Please, make this feature available. Thank you.
  20. 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
  21. Alien Skin Software's Blow Up 3 Plug in works great in other applications but seems Affinity photo does not see it? any suggestions? options or work around please. Mac - Florida
  22. 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???

  24. Can someone please give me a step by step to add NIK plugins, Ive downloaded but can not load install.
  25. 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?
