  1. Sorry. My mistake in leaving out the co in https://affin/coreskills.But it was an error here on this Forum rather when I tried to download. To be clear I have usually managed to download the necessary project files but only after a long frustrating time messing about. I admit I am an idiot when it comes to computers. I have been using them on a daily basis since way before Windows came along but they still baffle me. My interest is in photographic images rather than the internet yet I seem to spend more time trying to download projects than actually working on them. I usually use Firefox but in my frustration have also tried Oasis and Edge in attempts to download the WorkBook projects. All three with a singular lack of success. I think Affinity Photo is great. I admire it immensely. But then I have always liked the Serif products and have used them for many years. The WorkBook however, as you will have gathered , tries my patience severely. Malcolm Platt
  2. I have tried and tried and tried to access the coreskills files. I usually get an 404 error mesage. Occasionally seemingly by accident I get a file but can never remember next time how I did it. It has quite spoiled the book for me. So much time wasted! Simply entering https://affin/coreskills does not work for me. Nor does, for example, https://affin.co/london1. Surely it must be possible to design a system that facilitates such a simple task? As it is I have given up on the book. A waste of money. Malcolm Platt
  3. I can't get any of this to work if starting from a B/W image. I have scanned in old black & white photos (as jpgs) and would like to give them a sepia tint. Everything I try though starts from a B/W base and stays B/W.. Just to make things more difficult any attempt use the Topaz B/W plugin is also doomed as for some unknown reason all plugins are greyed out.. The problems are doubtless unrelated but add to the irritation.
  4. I have sorted the Printer problem. Sorry for the hiccup. Yesterday I downloaded major Windows Update which has messed up a lot of processes. I still need advice though on how to permanently change the profile in the Printer Profile Box.
  5. PS to tje above. I have just noticed that the printer in the \Printer box above Colour Management now appears as Microsoft XPS Document Writer. The options do not include the Epson Printer although I believer that they originally did.
  6. DWright - Actually It isn't quite. Again my incompetence shows. I have found the profile and can click on it and it shows in the Printer Profile Box. However as soon as I click on 'OK' it disappears and the box reverts to the original profile. How can I persuade it to change with a degree of permanence?
  7. Thanks everyone. I have been away so sorry for the delay in replying. I am still rather confused so please bear with me. DWright - thanks. I Where do I install the ICC profile. What I have been doing is going to File>Print>Colour Management and under Printer Profile there is a range ot options. What I would like to know is whether I can get my colour profile included in this list and if so how do I do it. I have looked at the thumbnail you gave but I am unsure which of the profiles mentioned relates specifically to the printer. Fixx - Thanks. The link you gave applies, as did the original PermaJet one, to PhotoShop. Being quite incompetent I need guidance for the Affinity process. MikeW -Thanks. Can any one confirm that I am wasting my time as it is not possible to instlal a new Printer profile in Affinity? R C- Thanks. You overestimate my intelligence. I don't really know what System level APl's are. or even if Windows 10 has them.
  8. Hi DWright, Thank you for your reply, I am trying to obtain as true as possible a reproduction of the colour of the print to that displayed on the monitor. To that end I have calibrated the monitor and obtained from PermaJet an ICC colour profile for their paper. PermaJet have sent me Instructions on how to install and use this profile but the information does not relate to Windows 10 which I have nor does it apply to other than Adobe Photoshop. I have queried this with them and have been told that they cannot help as they only have experience of the latter. As to Windows 10 they inform me that the profile will install automatically although they do not indicate where. I attach these instructions There is presumably a way of doing this for Affinity but being terminally incompetent I have not worked out what it is.

  9. I have received from PermaJet a printer profile but their accompanying information deals only with Photoshop and I have so far failed to import said profile into Affinity Photo. PermaJet cannot help as they only have experience with Photoshop. From the AP print menu I can locate the printer profile box but how to I get the new permajet printer profile to figure amongst the options offered? I am totally incompetent in matters relating to computers and it may well be a simple operation but so far it has proved beyond me. Can you help please? mlplatt
