  1. There is a basic error! First, you can‘t reproduce RGB colours exactly in CMYK, because the CMYK color spaces are much smaller as the different RGB colour spaces. Second, and more basically, you can‘t simply convert CMYK values mathematically to RGB values and vice versa. Why? Because for printing quality reasons the color „K“ is added, which doesn‘t exist in the „physical“ colour system. To say it in simple words: The CMYK colour system is a mathematical „incorrect“ system, because a colour is added, which normally doesn’t belong to the system. A conversion like meter to inch would only be possible, if CMYK wouldn’t be CMYK, but CMY. CMY (additive model) and RGB (subtractive model) can be converted mathematically into each other. Not only, but mainly because of the „K“, conversions between CMYK and RGB need color profiles, which provide the needed conversion tables, which are set up to match the specific needs of a specific printing process with specific prining colours. Different color profiles necessarily leed to different colour values. So you will get different values if you convert usind a SWOP or ISO Coated.
  2. That simply isn’t true. Luminar is a really powerful image editing software. If you are/have been a Lightroom user, Luminar will be a very good replacement (I don’t say, a better one than Affinity Photo, but who knows, what I am thinking … ) If you are/have been a Photoshop user, Affinity Photo is surely the better choice. Inb simple words: Luminar is a powerful tool, if you deal with photo improvements. Affinity Photo is a tool, which offers a wide range of composing features.
  3. You can’t „extract a color profile" from an eps file, because – generally spoken – eps is postscript, and postscript can’t and doesn’t support color profiles. (Although there where certain ways to embed profiles into an eps, this isn’t supported widely. Even Illustrator ignores it.) I’d definitely would avoid eps. The format is a last-century-format, no longer supported by its inventor since years and years, and has tons of restrictions (color profiling, transparency support, …). You really should drop eps, whereever possible and use PDF instead, which clears out all the eps shortcomings. Your screenshots don’t really help, because we don’t know, which profiles are used to display the file (monitor profile? default profile of the application? …)
  4. Would you force a big cat to swallow a small cat, hoping, it will catch more mice?
  5. No bug, but not really acceptable results. The Affinity team is concious about the necessity to re-engineer this feature, but hadn‘t actually the time to do this. If you search this forum for „expand strike“, you‘ find tons of threads concerning this issue.
  6. When the version is shipped to the public, the corresponding/previous beta release won‘t work any more. You may delete it or wait, until a new beta release (newer than the public release) will be launched.
  7. From Sunday until now – what a long time! Why on earth you don’t test it by yourself, and you have the solution within seconds …
  8. Hello! Why are you all guessing and interpreting? I stated nothing, but this: The statement "I read today that Lightroom Classic (perpetual license, not cloud based) will receive no updates after the end of 2017.“ is wrong. And it is. No way out. And I added: „You are talking about Lightroom 6.“ Can’t see, why to turn sumersaults about this …
  9. Probably he thought so. But, nevertheless, his statement was wrong.
  10. That is definitely not true. Lightroom Classic CC will be developed alongside Lightroom CC. Seems you are talking about Lightroom 6. This will be supported until end of 2017 by adding new cameras.
  11. This is a Designer feature. But if you have both applications, you can pass over your Photo document to Designer, create this „text on Patz“ object and go back to Photo.
  12. Did you place it into a folder?
  13. There us no "link" when buying from the AppStore. You buy it directly from the description page – what means, you must have seen, what you are buying. Or are you talking about the Windows version?
  14. Of course this may become a standard. Would be really fine! But the fear was, this And this is definitely completely unfounded. Of course you have the ability to export to every format you like. And if you haven’t imported an image as a HEIF image, it will will export in a format, other applications can read. You are using the High Sierra beta, @jcburns. Could you tell us: What happens if you drag an image out of Apple’s „Photos“ to the desktop? What format does it have? I bet JPG.
  15. Your link proves – nothing at all. HEIF will be the new intern standard. Ask the iOS beta testers, if their files, send for example from Apple's "Photos" via email, can't be read on the recipient's side.
