I am trying to upload some newly purchased Luts into my Affinity photo software but for the life of me I can not find the folder for the pre-existing luts with the program to add on to them. I've searched every folder relating to the program on my computer but there is nothing there that dictates the pre-existing luts so I can add more to them. I.e. presets. Let me know if I'm searching in all the wrong places or if affinity is just that unorganized with their files and felt like sending people on great journeys.

As I understand it, it doesn't matter where you put your LUT files, as Affinity Photo looks for them wherever you tell it you have kept them. (This is on a Mac, but I've no reason to suppose it works differently on a PC.)


For example, you have a folder full of LUTs, somewhere (anywhere) on your computer.


With an file open in the Photo persona, you add an LUT adjustment layer:




You click Load LUT...


Navigate to the folder where you're keeping your LUTs:






Select the one you want to use...




And it will be applied to the image, with its name in the LUT Adjustment panel, as above.


You can save it as a preset by clicking Add Preset, and then re-use it from the selection of presets in the Adjustments pane, which I've dragged out and made a bit larger to display it clearly:





But as far as I can see, it doesn't matter where you keep the LUTs.


The downside is that this means adding each LUT and creating presets one at a time.


The upside (on a Mac at least) is that it doesn't seem to matter if you move the folder full of LUTs after you've created the presets.


Hope this helps.

So, after manually adding ca. 100 LUT in 1.6 i just started 1.7 and all LUT are gone.

I wont add 100 LUT manually AGAIN.

This is seriously stupid and needs to be fixed.
