  1. Hi patanegra, It has been resolved to my experience. Best regards, mk0x55
  2. Hi Gabriel and Walt, You were entirely correct that the TIFFs were exported as 8-bit, Gabriel. I found a wrong setting in one of my Capture One export profile and I must have unintentionally switched it due to an unfortunate mouse movement and click... my bad. Sorry for bringing up this point and thank you for your advice and kind effort checking it up! Again, I really like your software and enjoy using it! Best regards, mk0x55
  3. That is correct. I always export as 16-bit TIFFs. For those TIFFs that open as 8-bit (and which you said were 8-bit in fact), i change the mode to 16-bit in Affinity Photo - to achieve smoother histogram behavior when editing the image. That's what I meant and hope it makes sense. I can't analyze the TIFF files I attached at this point (only have a cell phone at hand), but can investigate their consistency later on and come back in a few days...
  4. Well, the histogram behavior smoothens up notably when I switch them to 16-bit mode in Affinity and I export them as 16-bit. May it be the case that just the flag (or one of the flags) indicating 16-bit data in the tiff is set incorrectly?
  5. Hi Walt, I attach three such TIFF files that don't automatically switch to 16-bit. They are created by Capture One Pro 12. I need to note that some TIFF files created that way work, but they are a vast minority out of all that I tested - typically smaller files (in file size) based on my observation.

  6. Thank you for your replies and information, I assume the solution is then to wait for version 1.7 to come out (or get the beta if possible). On a side note (I should perhaps check if anyone else reports this and otherwise open a ticket), I also experience the need to explicitly set 16-bit mode each time after opening a file although I always open and work with 16-bit TIFFs (the program always defaults to 8-bit somehow). If I forget to do it (which happens), there is a price is lesser output quality... I hope a patch for this will also be included in an upcoming version. Best regards, mk0x55
  7. Dear Affinity Support Team, I just bought Affinity Photo and am truly impressed by its functionality and ease of use. I really love the software, however I realized there is probably one minor defect in displaying images (if it can be termed that way)... My setup (SW, HW). I'm using Affinity Photo on Windows 10 Pro, on a Lenovo ThinkPad T560 laptop with Intel i7-6600 and 16 GB RAM. I'm using the built-in computer screen along with an external screen (Eizo FlexScan EV2335W), both color-profiled using my X-Rite i1 Display Pro. The problem. Affinity Photo seems to only display colors of my pictures correctly on my built-in screen. As soon as I move the Affinity window to my other screen, the colors become slightly shifted and inaccurate. I mostly work with 16-bit TIFF images using ProPhotoRGB (ROMM RGB); and I even set the global Affinity Photo settings accordingly (Edit --> Preferences --> Colour --> ...); however, this problem shows up even if I open sRGB images. I wasn't able to iterate to a correct color representation on my external screen no matter what color profile I assigned to the document (picture). The only thing that appeared to help was to simply move the Affinity Photo window to my built-in screen. Side notes. I many times noticed that many application and even Windows itself tends to have issues with this, each in its own way. For example, mspaint.exe is always way off on any of my screens (way too dark and muted) from the point of applying color profiles to my screens, while another application I use (XnView) displays it always correctly. Capture One, DxO PhotoLab and even Adobe Photoshop also display images correctly and consistently on both screens. Also, I wasn't able to document this using screenshots, as that happens to capture the colors consistently, as they show up on my built-in monitor; however, when I compared the same file opened by Affinity Photo and XnView, the incorrect color shift on Affinity Photo was apparent (more purple-ish colors in my case). I would appreciate your advice in case I'm doing something wrong or in case I missed some important configuration options to adjust. In the mean time it would even help if I could reconfigure Windows together with Affinity Photo to use my secondary screen's ICC profile as the default one, since that one is more suited for image editing. Thank you in advance. Best regards, mk0x55
