Plugin Filters
« on: November 12, 2016, 08:20:34 AM »
Hello all; I got this info from the Affinity Photo Forum:
This is what the admins say about using plugins/filters:

Photoshop plugin support is still being worked on. Some plug-ins do not work correctly or do not work at all.

Currently the Google Nik Collection only works with 8 bit images. The plug-ins will appear greyed out if you are working with a 16 bit image/document.

Bill, I wouldn't be too concerned with third party plugins at this point anyway.  We have so much to learn within the program as it is. And, it has a lot of included plugins for us to play with.   

I don't even know how to resize an image yet.   :cancan:  but I'm sure I can figure it out.  It's good to know why they don't work though, especially for those who are accustomed to using them.   :praise53:

 :thanks06: for the info. Bill.

My Topaz plug-ins are working well, and they are my favorites, so I'm feeling good about that!!

Me too, Grethe.  I want to learn to use the program before I get into filters and plugins and such.  Between Designer and Photo, I think my plate is pretty full... and then Christmas comes along and complicates things!!  :dancegirl:

 :praise53:,,, Filters and plugins come later, we need to learn the tools first :thumb3:

MaryLou, you see I learned how to do photo work using Photoimpact from you and the mentors, Photoimpact I used for all my photo restoration,, So now comes Affinity Photo and  :wow2:, so much better and easier than photoimpact and a lot better than PSP, the tools have a better use and more flexible use.

I've only used Photo for the projects thus far but what I see, I like!!  I just might be able to make my photos look decent!!!   I knew PI like I do my own name and well I should have after as many years as I used it!   Looking forward to when I am that familiar with AP!! :xmas72:

 


Keep on smiling! It will make people wonder what you're up to!! :)
