Hi,

 

One thing that's great about LR and PS is the option to use 3PP plugins, such as those from Nik Collection (now Google and for free). Is there a plan to bring these into Affinity as well? Or would I have to bag Google for that?

 

Thanks

Hi Landstreicher,

 

Welcome to the forums.

 

The Google Nik Collection can be installed and used with Affinity Photo, our plugin support is always being improved and when we release our 1.5 update more plugins will function. You may want to take a look at this video on installing the plugins within Photo, but not all of them are working as they should.

Ah, thanks a lot! This video helped a great deal - especially with the point to add the root directory as a plugin support. Works now like a charm. The only thing I'd be happy if it would be improved is that when returning to Photo from any of the Nik collection plugins, the result is placed in a new layer, rather than overwriting the original layer. Sure, I can always duplicate my layer before calling the plugin as a workaround. However, I have to always remember that and it is an additional (unnecessary) manual step.

 

Cheers,

Alex

I have installed the NIK plugins and they appear in the plugins menu. However they do not seem to work. Some just go to a black and white chequered image and Dfine2 just gives a message box about not being able to apply the filter to a separate layer. Am I doing something wrong or do they just not work on a MAC running Sierra?
