hello all,

anyone knows how to use the nik hdr efex pluing within affinity photo?

in order to create a true hdr image, multiple exposures of the same pic are needed. the problem is, how can they passed simultaneously from affinity photo to the plugin?

the plugins menu gets grayed if more than one layer is selected. this prevents passing more than one image to nik hdr efex.

i only could use it outside AP until now, making it load multiple tiff or jpeg files.

maybe i am missing something obvious... any suggestion would be appreciated.

thanks, stefano


take care,

stefano

Hi Barninga and Welcome to the Forums,

 

It's not possible to pass multiple images to Nik HDR eFex from Affinity.  So this can only be used on 1 image.

 

Have you checked out the HDR Stacking feature of Affinity?  Great video tutorial on the topic here

hi @stokerg

yes i did try the AP hdr functionality. it works well, but in some situations it seems to me that nik's hdr efex creates a bit more natural colors. maybe i have to experiment deeper.

thank you for your reply.


take care,

stefano

Both Nik and Affinity offer various presets in the final (tone-mapping) stage. You can also adjust these colours yourself to make it as 'natural' as you wish.
