    Maarten Langeveld got a reaction from Patrick Connor in Affinity Photo's (absence of) colour management   
    Thanks, Good to know !
    I have calibrated my monitor using Spyder, which has created a wide gamut monitor profile for my standard monitor preset, this Spyder generated profile I have installed as default profile for my display in Windows Colour Management. But since Windows itself is not colour managed, the Windows GUI looks very over-staurated, so when doing regular tasks websurfing, e-mail etc. I switch my monitor to built-in (i.e. in the monitor itself) RGB profile. When working with Affinity I switch my monitor to (wide gamut) standard preset and like with Windows GUI, Affinity GUI looks very over-saturated.
    Edit: for some reason cannot reproduce over-saturated colours with Affinity. Have installed all profiles again, and now seems okay! Probably did something wrong that I have looked over. My apologies.

    Maarten Langeveld got a reaction from anon2 in File sizes .aphoto project keeps increasing even when pixel layers are deleted !   
    Hi Chris,
    Thanks for your feedback. I understand but do not understand quite frankly.
    When it takes at least 200 MB per 16 mp photo that I process in Affinity, I won't using Affinity anymore I'm afraid. Hope you guys and girls at Affinity understand that file sizes are extremely huge.
    Hope you'll add a 'save for archiving' option that (1) strips all redundant data (for optimisation) en (2) losslessy compresses remaining project data to Affinity Photo (and not exclusively for Publisher).

    When working on a affinity photo project, the .aphoto project file size keeps increasing even when I delete layers, convert document from RBG/16 to RGB/8. After my workflow from importing 16 megapixel RAW file as AdobeRGB in RGB/16, develop the image using Development Persona, doing some stuff in Photo persona using a second pixel layer, in the end flatten to one pixel layer and just adding two non pixel layers layers (soft proof adjustment and high pass filter), convert document to sRGB in RGB/8, leaves me a .aphoto file of 199 Mb (!!! not kidding). Save as reduces filesize to (a still ridiculous) 159 Mb.
    It is:
    (1) strange that "save" and "save as" the same .aphoto project leaves different filesizes (in casu 199 Mb vs 159 Mb), should be the same!
    (2) ridiculous that a affinity photo project containing just a 16 megapixel 8 bit RGB pixel layer and one adjustment layer and one filter layer has a file size that is more than three times the image size (16 Mega pixel times 3 bytes (8 bit colour per channel))
    These ultra huge file sizes are a problem, please fix. I am using Affinity Photo on Windows 10.
