Affinity Photo - how to back up plugins and macros


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have googled and searched through this forum but haven't been able to find the exact answer to my question.

From a point of view of backing up my Windows laptop, if something were to happen, I could reinstall AP, BUT, I would then need to reinstall the plugins I've added in plus the macros I've created.

I believe that these would be all I'd really need to back up, although if there's a way to backup the pgm, including my customisation, then that could work too.

I guess I'm looking for files that I should backup & their locations.

Thanks 🙂

Julie.

The plugins are in the directory you installed them in, and that you told Affinity Photo to use in Preferences, Photoshop Plugins. So you should be able to backup that directory.

For the macros: The FAQ article below describes where to find the "user" directory, and all the things it contains. There may be more than macros and plugins that you want to backup:
