I am new to Affinity Photo. I was pleased to see that it was possible to use Topaz plugins. However I cannot workout how to get Affinity to recognise where they are. I have followed the Help topic and looked on this forum but am not getting anywhere.

 

I have Photoshop CS5 (which is where I looked for the plugins.)

 

I am using a PC with Windows 10

 

I am aware that using these plugins is a work in progress. It is a bonus I was not expecting.

 

I suspect I am missing something obvious in the instructions so help would be appreciated

 

I have attached a screenshot of the position I have reached. I hope it helps

Mine didn't show up adding the photoshop plug-in directory either, but when I added the path "C:\Program Files\Topaz Labs" to the Photoshop Plug-ins preferences in Affinity, they all showed up and worked fine.

Pointing to C:\Program Files\Topaz Labs and to C:\Program Files (x86)\Topaz Labs (you have to add both folders) should add all Topaz filters to Affinity Photo. Note that Topaz Remask 5 currently doesn't work with Affinity Photo.

Hi, isn't possible to use Abobe Illustrator's plugins to AD? I really want one plugin in AD

Hi Wifestealer,

No, that's not possible. Affinity Designer doesn't support any kind of plugins.

will it support in future? I think guides need to be improved. We simply can't delete guides.

I'm having an issue getting NIK reinstalled after computer issue/reformat.  OSX 10.12.3 Affinity 1.5.2 

 

Previously installed with no problems under earlier OSX.

 

Went through video step by step.

 

I do not see any NIK plugins at all.

 

I cannot enter "\" as a valid option for support folder.  Authorize global is greyed out.

 

TIA for your assistance

I am using Affinity Photo on a Gigabyte laptop with Windows 10 and Core I-7 with plenty of ram. I have installed Topaz and NIK plugins and they will start when going to Filters/Plugins/.... However, when the Topaz or NIK program starts it shows only a black rectangle and not the picture??

I also have a number of Topaz filters. I installed them in Affinity Photo and they work.
With the exception of ReMask of course ( which I can use as standalone ).

Windows 7 Pro machine.
I must add that I added them one by one.

Can it be something that is Win10 related?

I had incomplete install of Topaz Impression. Now it works (OSX El Capitan). It is sometimes hard to follow what gets installed where and what should be adjusted to make it work in AP..

I am suspicious of the Core I-7 as it has been blamed for other incompatibilities but no one can answer for sure.

I am also new to affinity and have a i-mac with latest updates - I have all the topaz plugins - I cannot see how to get them to install - I no longer have photoshop - I did try to navigate to the topaz folder but couldn't get it to add - wonder what i am doing wrong - can I install all of the plug ins even though at the moment some don't work or would that mess up affinity photo?  THanks for your help

I too can't get them to work. First, their status shows up (in preferences) as Unknown. But when trying to use them, I always get the message:

 

Cannot Proceed. 

IPC Memory in use or 

Image size is too big for the system.

 

I no longer have my Photoshop CS3 installed, but I have Photoshop Elements 15 and they do work on the same image in there.
