Affinity Extensions are now available in the Mac App Store version of Affinity Photo (1.4). For more information please read the Extensions for Apple Photos + Video Tutorial thread.

 

Please note: If you have any questions regarding Affinity Retouching, please post them in the Questions section :)

 

How do I find the Affinity Retouching Photos extension:

The Photos extension aka Affinity Retouching is currently only available in the latest Customer Beta build of Affinity Photo. The Customer Beta builds can only be used by users who have the paid Mac App Store version of Affinity Photo installed. You will also need the latest version of OS X, El Capitan.

  • Download and install the latest Affinity Photo Customer Beta build from here.
  • Once installed, go to System Preferences... from the Apple Menu
  • Click Extensions > Photos
  • Select Affinity Retouching

When you next edit an image in Photos you will have access to the Affinity Retouching extension.

 

I've followed the above steps but Affinity Retouching is not showing in extensions. Now what?

Try launching the Affinity Photo Beta version first before following the above steps.

 

Is Affinity Retouching available in the Affinity Photo Trial?

Not at the moment. If this changes, I will update this post.

 

When will Affinity Retouching be available in the Mac App Store version of Affinity Photo?

Affinity Retouching will be integrated into the MAS version of Affinity Photo in a future Mac App Store update. When I have more information, I will update this post.

 

Hope this helps!

Any information, when (or if) extensions for Apple’s Photos will come to Yosemite, Leigh? :unsure:

 

AFAIK, Apple Photos Extensions are only available to El Capitan. Not sure if Apple plan to bring support for Extensions to Yosemite :/

Hello,

I managed the ARP, but is there a possibility of a help file or video. I find it difficult to work with.

 

Thanks

 

I expect the help to be updated when Affinity Retouching is integrated into the Mac App Store version in the future :)

Hi dadparent,

All tools are directly usable on the canvas. So as a general rule just select one of the tools on the right and paint on the canvas. If you first create a selection (or have a selection active), they only affect the area inside the selection. The red X (on the top right of the interface), clears the selection, while the icon on its right inverts a selection.

If you mouse-over the icons on the top right of the interface, a tooltip will appear to help you identify what they do.

Will there be more features included in the Photos Extension than there is no? Currently, the feature set of the extension is not very compelling. It would be nice to see more of the main app included in the extensions.
