Hi all. If I convert a file from RAW in Photo then use a plugin filter (NIK, Topaz etc) any crop I have added is lost. Even if I convert then crop in Photo the crop is still reset to the original proportions in the filter. See the screenshots for examples cos it's kinda hard to write about while listening to Pretty Fly (for a white guy) loud!

 

Do others see this?

I'm actually on a Mac and not Win version of these, here the NIK plugin filters will take over/show up the full initial image (as if it hasn't been cropped) but as far as you apply the NIK filter (press Ok) it will be applied to the cropped size in APh. - So the plugin filters seem to get the whole image hand over from APh, but in return APh does adapt the made plugin settings then over to the cropped image layer. At least under MacOS here.

Try rasterizing (Layer > Rasterize) after the crop and before calling Nik.

Ah, you know what? The Rasterize trick works in AFPhoto but NOT in the 1.7 Beta. How weird. I should get that info to Serif. Anyone else with the Beta confirm what I'm seeing?

Does it work in the beta if you set the "Crop method" in the Context toolbar to "Resample and crop" rather than "Non-destructive"?

Ah! That works but I was hoping to crop as I am developing the raw file and I only have that choice in the main program.

Well, perhaps you could finish developing and then crop in the Photo persona without changing the size of the crop box :)
But I would think that rasterizing would also work.

Rasterizing works but NOT in the beta for 1.7. Anyway, it's not a big problem for me personally as I always use Exposure X3 to process raws anyway but it might affect others more.
