    Try sRGB for the web. But you can use a bigger colour space (eg Adobe RGB)  and change it when you export.

    Oh great, thanks! I remembered from Photoshop you would convert it from the mode menu and there wasn't a separate dialog box so I'll just have to get used to the new way.

    How are you changing the colour mode? Document->Convert Format/ICC Profile?

    No, I didn't do it that way. I was trying to change it under Affinity Photo > Preferences which doesn't seem to do anything.

    I am in the dialog you mentioned now, is this where I select one of the RGBs under "color format?" This image will be going on the web so it seems like that is what I should pick?

  3. I can’t figure out why since I think they were all scanned in the same. I will select a color but it just comes out in a shade of grey. I tried setting the color mode to sRGB or Adobe (1998) but in the top left corner of the window it continues to say “Generic Gray Gamma 2.2 Profile.” A grayscale image doesn't have to be scanned as color to later change it to color does? I don't need to rescan the photo right or do I?

    My whole Affinity Suite on the Monterey 12.3 is also much better/faster including loading times. I have Intel MBP 2017. Second thing I observed is that the latest update of Affinity apps also helped a lot.  

    I only tested it on my 2020 MacBook Pro a little bit. I also have a 2017 iMac that I haven't had access to for a while but I am curious as to how performance will be different there.

    Is there a page that tells what new features are planned for AF Designer and AF Photo?

    Many have pointed out that Apple is showing Affinity Publisher in it's ads for iPad Air 5. My guess is that this is where their attention is going at the moment. There is still one application in the lineup that hasn't been released even as a beta yet so it makes sense that this is their main focus.

    I agree it is very disappointing that Affinity has not fixed this, it’s been broken for ages but I’m not sure I’d agree that Apple shares a responsibility to fix it.

    Affinity Photo on Mac is a stable product the only major bug for me is with extensions. The whole point of Apple's Photo app was to leave the more advanced features up to the 3rd party development and I find that component of the app still lacking. Other then Affinity being broken it takes far too many clicks to get in and out of 3rd party editing tools. I think most people where think that Photos could eventually work as a good replacement for Aperture that was released so long ago. I think you should expect more from Apple because I think Serif has been doing a much more solid job in the pro Photo area then Apple as of late.

    Frankly, I don’t think this is a high priority for Affinity as it only affects some users, not all, and presumably is not having a major impact on sales.

    The rest of the tool works very well so I'm sure that is why is sells so good.

    If we are just starting the 1.10 cycle, then it might be months before it is finally released.

    Usually it takes them close to a year to put out a major feature product update and we are currently 4 months past 1.9 getting released. Publisher isn't going to go another 8 months before they put out multiple service releases. I don't think 1.10 would make sense for a release that is purely a bug fix release. Unless 1.10 ends up being a very minor feature update or is all about maintenance updates like 1.6. A lot of tech goes with "tick-tock-tick" release cycles alternating between major and minor updates. If 1.10 is a smaller release between major ones that would be fine by me.

  8. I have to wonder if Publisher won't continue with 1.9.x numbering scheme given that it is the one app that really has it's share of glitches yet to be fixed. I can't imagine them waiting until the next feature update of that product before issuing more bug fixes to the stable product. I also wonder if 1.10 will be as big of a feature release as 1.9 or if it will be something in between a smaller bug release and something like 1.9?

  9. Also Photo doesn't seem to have a ton of major bugs on my end so they might as well start adding features while software like Publisher keeps squashing bugs. The only major bug I have is that the Affinity Photos extension in the Apple Photos is still as broken as ever. I see this as being half Apple's fault. The two companies should be working together to fix that.

    Kip, the image in your post is a cmyk .jpg

    Oh whoops! At one point the blue used to be a spot color (when it was going to press) I don't know how I switched it over to cmyk. It was going to a cmyk printer at one point. That's probably the reason. Yes, as @Alfred said there is no need to log-in to Instagram. I am not sure why you are getting a log-in window instead the account page like he is but you probably don't need to see it at this point anyways.

  11. We have a logo that is a royal blue and it looks fine when I export it, meaning it looks like it does in the Affinity doc but it becomes a very light turquoise blue once I bring it into some other applications. I am exporting as a jpg since it is going to the web. Any idea on why I am getting this major color shift?

    To see a blue which is closer to what it should be you can see the icon on our Instagram. I set up the IG years ago so I don't know why that logo export worked and what I might have done differently. It should have been exported from designer as well. https://www.instagram.com/cascadeprecision/

    It didn't really need to be that big but I couldn't find the buttons to easily make it smaller.
