  1. Sorry but I'm still slightly confused ~ so fill in the blanks for me ~ So, I load a RAW file into Affinity Photo in the 'Develop Persona' - Question 1 ~ What Profile do/ should I choose at this point sRGB 1EC61966-21 - ProPhoto RGB or ROMM RGB or One, which I have calibrated for my iMac using an i1Studio calibrator Next - I finish Developing my RAW File and I transfer it to the 'Photo Persona' where I carry out adjustments until I am happy. When happy I go to File ⇢New where upon a New Document Dialogue box appears… So, at this point… Question 2 ~ What should already be in the Colour Format & Colour Profile boxes? Question 3 ~ Do I need to change the Colour Profile to one of the previously mentioned Profiles or a completely different icc? - (I have a Canon iP8750 Printer & I use either Photo Paper Plus Glossy II or a 3rd Party equivalent). If I have the answers to the above questions then I simply copy and paste my image into the New Document ⇢ Then ⇢ Go to File ⇢ & follow Printing procedure. Hopefully this is now much clearer to answer. Thank you in advance Digby.
  2. Hopefully some one can help me out…. I am trying to get a much better all round understanding of what 'Colour Profile & Colour Format'. is/are. When I open a New RAW Image, I see, along with all the other adjustments an icon for Profiles ~ When I check this box, it shows ~ Output Profile - sRGB 1EC61966-21 and… if I open up the box, there are a hole host of other profiles with weird names and numbers (including one profile, which I have calibrated for my iMac using an i1Studio calibrator). I have seen or read somewhere that a much better profile to use is one with a Larger Gamut & the ones suggested were ~ ProPhoto RGB or ROMM RGB. So, at this point in the RAW Development process am I better to leave it with the ~ sRGB 1EC61966-21 or, should I switch the profile to either my latest i1Studio calibrated version? ~ or not that then ~ use as suggested a larger Gamut such as ProPhoto RGB or ROMM RGB.? If I then switch to any of these New / Different profiles, whilst I'm in the Develop Persona, do I have to switch-back-later-on to the sRGB 1EC61966-21 before I print? And, if that's the case… How do I go about this? Normally when I've finished editing an image I go File ⇢New⇢ a 'New Document' dialogue box appears and because I am unsure what to enter in the Colour Format or Colour Profile boxes shy away and just check that the size of paper is correct and click okay. (My bad I know) My prints to date are always slightly disappointing and so perhaps a better understanding of 'Colour Profiles & Colour Formats'. Will help get me to where I should already be. Hopefully someone out there can guide me through this latest post processing maze.
