    Hi Nicolas,

    In this case, could you please kindly contact us via https://skylum.com/support? We will look into this and check what can be done. Thanks!

    @Brad Ashbrook The Topaz Labs plugins I've got to work are their current AI products. Specifically:

    • Topaz Sharpen AI v2.0.5
    • Topaz Denoise AI v2.1.6

    I haven't tried any of the other TL products (nor older versions of either of these two) with Affinity Photo.

    @Ray Cologon 

    On macOS 10.15.4, Topaz Adjust AI v1.05, Topaz  Mask AI v1.1.0 and Topaz Studio 2 v2.31 in addition to the two plugins you listed run in Affinity Photo 1.8.3.180 Beta. (The older versions of Topaz plugins don't work -- I've tested.)

    It would be appreciated by all if Skylum would make the Luminar 4 plugin compatible with Affinity Photo.

    I have Topaz AI sharpen, adjust and denoise.

    When I load them and click on from via a duplicate layer, nothing happens.

    The AI files are plugins for photoshop and standalone applications. I have tried loading them through various plugin search folders with no luck. Am I searching them from the wrong way?

    Brad, 

    From Preferences

    Plugin Search Folders

    • /Applications/Topaz Adjust AI/Topaz Adjust AI.app
    • /Applications/Topaz Mask AI/Topaz Mask AI.app
    • /Applications/Topaz Labs LLC (This folder handles installation for Topaz Studio 2, Topaz DeNoise AI and Topaz Sharpen AI)

    Now all we need is the instruction from Skylum to install an operational version of the Luminar 4 plugin. Let's hope it is soon.

    Will poke around Topaz for some answers.

    Here is a possible explanation of the problem with the mac OS that was posted to the Affinity Photo forum:

    https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/113661-using-luminar-4-as-a-plugin-in-af/

    I'm not a programmer, so the reference to "sandboxing" in the post is way beyond my pay grade. Perhaps the user's tip will be enough for the developers here or at Serif to fix this bug.

    Hi everyone,

    Luminar is not compatible with Affinity Photo and the interactions of these two apps are not documented. 

    Nevertheless, you can try installing the plugin for Affinity Photo manually.

    1. Make sure Luminar 4 is closed.
    2. Open Affinity Photo.
    3. Navigate to the File > Edit > Preferences 
    4. Open Photoshop Plugins ( https://prnt.sc/topquh )
    5. Click on Add > Point Affinity to the Program Files >Skylum> Luminar4 folder (https://prnt.sc/tops56)
    6. Choose "Allow Unknown plugins to be used" https://prnt.sc/toprmc 
    7. Restart Affinity Photo app.

    To use Luminar 4 as a plugin click on Filters > Plugins> Skylum Software>Luminar 4.

    You can easily access Luminar 4 from Capture One in the following way: https://manual.skylum.com/4/en/topic/how-to-user-skylum-s-luminar-4-with-capture-one?q=Capture+One

    Douglas, I asked like a year ago and it's been ignored. Somebody from Skylum marked the question as "Answered." They answered by saying it doesn't work. 

    I had the same thing happen to me. Purchased it to use in Affinity Photo been not got it working.

    On my Windows 10 machines I have Luminar AI (and Luminar 4) working as plugins in Affinity Photo 1.8.5 and beta 1.9.0.

    Hi guys,

    Please note that we do not officially support Affinity Photo, but we appreciate your feedback, so I will make sure to pass it to your developers.

    Elena.. The skylum website advertises it as a plug-in and application for Mac and Windows. No where does it say the plug-in is exclusive to Photoshop. So basically, I wasted my money upgrading from 4, to Ai. Where can I request a refund?

    This is never going to happen. Some of us left comments over a year ago. Response is always the same. “We’ll pass it on”. There is no incentive for them to develop for Affinity.

    I would also like to use the Luminar Plugin in Affinity Photo as a Windows User. I could install it, but it does not work. It does not load. Nothing happens at all.

    Robert, I agree with you. This problem for Affinity Photo users of Mac continues with Luminar AI. Our requests were obviously ignored by the developers.

    @Brad Ashbrook  Yes, the Topaz Labs plugins I've tried have worked in Affinity Photo in the same way they work in Photoshop.

    @Elvin Basson I'm using MacOS Mojave (10.14.6) and Affinity Photo v1.8.3  - - - FWIW.

    I wouldn't say it "crashes" (which would mean quitting without notice). Rather it hangs - stays interminably with the "LUMINAR 4/Plugin started..." message on display, without actually launching Luminar 4 or loading anything.

    I've tried walking away and leaving the above pane showing for up to a couple of hours, and nothing has changed when I come back. So I'd say that amounts to "stuck".  ; )
