Nik Collection Problems

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I just recently started using Affinity as my main photo editing software. I had used it, along with the Nik Collection, on a friends computer, and had no issues at all. I proceeded to purchase Affinity and installed the Nik Collection as well. I have followed all the steps to properly install the Nik Collection without Photoshop installed, but it will not work. I will open an image, create a new layer for the filter, go to the plugins menu and click one of the filters, like Color Efex, and nothing will happen. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but no luck.

 

Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated!

I've just tried this on a clean install of Windows 10 with the Nik Collection and Affinity Photo 1.5.2.54 installed. Color Efex Pro 4 opened ok for me. 

Have you tried opening Color Efex Pro stand alone app to see if that works? Incidentally do you have a link to the instructions you used to install?

Hi Mangetsu2401,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Adding to waht Sean said, are you applying the filter to the image layer or to a new empty layer? Maybe i misunderstood you, but you have to apply it to the image layer, not to an empty layer. If you want to preserve the original layer, duplicate it before applying the filter.

Nik Collection is working fine for me, EXCEPT Viveza. My picture is lovely pink, while the tumbnail in the right down corner is correct in color. So far the other Nik plugins seem to work.

 

Is this a bug?

Fisrtly, yes Color Efex does launch in stand alone mode. Second, sorry for being unclear. I did duplicate the original image layer so that I could have a filter layer. And third, I used the video here, http://www.affinityphototips.com/install-nik-collection-affinity-photo/ to help me install it. Yes I understand that this one is for apple, but it seems that the installation is practically the same.
