I am an amateur user of Affinity photo. I just purchased a bundle of presets for Affinity from Inkydeals.com and I'm somewhat embarrassed to say that I don't know how to get them into my program. Other posts refer to a Presets Manager but I can't find that in the software. Can someone please help this "newbie"?

But to try to answer the question, what are the file names of some of the presets?

Or, what is the URL of the set you purchased?

Sorry about being in the wrong forum - I'm new to this too.

The files are all .cube files and I got them at https://www.inkydeals.com/deal/affinity-best-photo-presets/

Thanks for any help you can give.

Files of format .cube are 3D LUT files, and you would import them using a LUT Adjustment (Layers studio panel, or Adjustments studio panel):

You can see their effects and select them from the Adjustments studio panel:

Note that having a large number of LUTs installed will slow down the presentation of that panel, as Photo will need to create all those thumbnail views of how the image would look with the LUT applied to it.

(When a moderator notices this thread, they will probably move it to Affinity on Desktop Questions, where you should have posted originally :) )

The .cube format is somewhat standardized; in theory those should work in a wide assortment of programs, which makes me wonder why they are marketing them that way...

Sorry.

Thank you for reporting a problem using the pre 1.8.0 beta builds. It appears that a member of the Affinity QA team didn't get round to fully investigating this specific report posted in the bugs forums. We are very sorry for this oversight. Yours is one of a number of reports that I am posting this apology to, using an automated script. 

Now we have released 1.8.3 on all platforms containing many hundreds of bug fixes, and we hope your problem has already been fully addressed. If you still have this problem in the 1.8.3 release build, then the QA team would really appreciate you reporting again it in the relevant Bugs forum.

Each of those links above contains instructions how best to report a bug to us. If that is what you already did in this thread just copy paste your original report into a new thread. We appreciate all the information that you have including sample files and screen shots to help us replicate your problem.

This thread has now been locked as the QA team are not following the threads to which this automatic reply is made, which is why we would appreciate a new bug report if you are still have this problem in the release build.
