Installed in Affinity but grayed out

I have installed Nik Collection 3 in Affinity - I see Nik Collection in the Filter>Plug-ins but each individual plug-in is grayed out. Can anyone help?

di you follow these steps:


Maywander, it looks like from the screen shot you posted that you have an adjustment layer highlighted. You can’t send an adjustment layer to a Nik Collection tool for processing. You need to merge your adjustments and your base photo (Background layer). Then highlight the merged result and select the Nik Collection tool you want to use. Hope that helps.
