Hello again, the advice you gave me worked for the image I was asking about, I was able to fix to by changing the setting to "Apply tone curve". However, this issue has not actually been resolved for me, since this post, some images look normal with apply tone curve off, and some look normal with tone curve off... but now I'm having issues where no matter what the setting is, Affinity applies a harsher darker tone to what I'm getting in preview. I've tested out different photo editing software and Affinity is the only one that opens my files like this, am I missing something else? Or could this be a bug with how Affinity opens certain files depending on the colors? I've messed with other settings to see if I can get any changes but I can't find anything. Thank you for any insight you may have.
