    xara's support for photoshop plugins is pretty much legacy only these days - I am thinking these are too recent

    thanks for that reply

    just checking to make sure there was not some secret xara handshake/wink that needed to be done to get them functioning

    i can use it in gimp or as a standalone, then bring them into xara if needed

    it is a pretty sweet suite of free photo tools, if anyone is interested here is the free download link

    I tried the Nik plugins with a later version of PGD and have had some success, but more often than not PGD crashes straight after applying. I mostly use them in standalone mode. Something I have found is you can open png (not just jpg files) by drag and dropping them straight onto the various plugin icon.

    They do work perfectly well in Affinity, so it'd be nice if Xara made the effort to support them properly. It would be fantastic to be able to use the HDR Efex module in Xara.

    I remember someone here mentioning that locking the effect immediately after applying the effect prevents the program from crashing.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.
