  1. thanks for these explanations! Ok, TSL is a french thing! I will edit my message. But there is no "L" in affinity designer. It's an "I" (intensity/Intensité, maybe?) Saturated paintings/watercolor can be difficult to convert to CMYK.. But we can touch up colors with softwares I didn't really understood the comparison in your last phrase. Because CMYK is not comparable to work with real paintbrushes, and water. (And my translation in french do not make any sens..)
  2. I used the shortcut ctrl + F to find the number of cr4ppy in this page! I don't know. To pick my colors, I use the HSL wheel (triangle) in affinity designer. It's the only wheel. What does HSL means? I guess this is compatible with both (CMYK and RGB colors) Maybe.. But we can use vectors for web too. I think I'll check sometimes with a quick conversion, in order to see if my colors looks similars with the other format (CMYK or RGB). For a logo, it's better to start in CMYK.. and avoid the idea of saturated turquoise or magenta if we have to print lol
  3. Thanks a lot, SrPx I finally understood my issue. You where right, the problem came from saturated colors. In CMYK, they doesn't seems too saturated. But they where located on the triangle edge or extremities. With the conversion, they changed a lot ! I just have to touch up a few ones. sRGB fits great with the rest of the non-problematic colors/illustrations I'll use this profile for my RGB files (4 cr4ppy)
  4. Yes! CMJN (Cyan Magenta Jaune Noir). It's weird that we don't say "CMYB" in english! I guess it's because "Blue" and "Black" start with a "B" Currently, I'm more interested in POD than Offset. Which ones do you use? Thanks a lot for these advices!
  5. Thank you everyone for your explanations I understand more now! (why sRGB is so useful). magenta/purple and some blue are a problem with CMYK profiles in general, I guess.. Thanks for this advice. It seems efficient and easier. I should try this method 2 very good ideas, I will try it too Yes, I want to enjoy my art in priority! I didn't see all these things as an "impossible task" anymore. But there is so many things to learn.. it seems very significant. Other people's experience help me a lot. Ahah x). I thought you where from US or UK, because I didn't see any difference. Google translation understand very well your "broken english"! They have improved in recent years. You are a chit-chatter but it's really cool. I learned some new english words, design vocabulary and technical things. It will be useful! I should put my apps in english as you do. Yes, I meant RGB! (RVB is the french name of this colors -(Rouge Vert Bleu) I will take the time to study these informations more in details
  6. Thanks for all this informations! I really appreciate. It will help me for the future I'm a begginer about all this things. I started color with acrylic painting. So I don't have this graphic knowledge when I choose my colors (...And I'm french, so it's even more difficult to understand all this informations right now ^^'). Can you explain this phrase please? : " lately what I do is treat CMYK like the JPG of the color space world. Like going to a reduced quality thingy " What does "treat like the JPG of the color space world" means? The illustrations I created are not for a special project or client, it's for my first portfolio ^^. I was training with vectorial drawing. So, when I started, color profiles and formats were not my priority. I just wanted to create... I did my illustrations in RVB. But later I told myself that If I wanted to print them one day (in order to sell some prints), I'll need a CMYK file. So I convert all my files in CMYK. Choosing the profile I appreciate the most - US web coated V2 (for the colors it gaves to my work after the conversion). Now I know, we need to choose the CMYK profile according to the printer, paper, etc... But I don't know the printer yet... On the other hand, working in CMYK helped me a lot to manage the color harmony between them. (I was used to paint with acrylic.. It's very different, so my "RGB style" was terrible . CMYK gave me a kind of "style" I prefer. For me it's easier to work with. So, I start all my new illustrations with this format since a few months. I have to convert 18 CMYK illustrations to RGB, in order to put them on my future website. Yesterday I was totally blocked, but this morning, a friend tell me how to do to resolve this problem. I will export the files as CMYK (in a JPEG or PNG). And open it in affinity, in order to convert the illustrations in RGB. Normally, the colors will be exactly the same. I think, convert the export is the quickest solution. I don't want to touch up all the colors of my 18 illustrations one by one! When I try to convert the affinity designer file, it's impossible to have the same colors in CMYK and RGB. With the "Wide gamut RGB", the colors look better than with the other profiles. But there are some differences (opacity, and big saturation with some colors)
  7. Hi ! If I want to create an illustration for PRINT AND WEB.. I think starting with CMYK is the better option.. But how can I convert CMYK to RGB without big changes of color, saturation and opacity?
  8. Hi, Yes! It would be really nice In affinity, "delete layer" is very close with the "new layer" button. It can be a problem sometimes Thanks for your help!
  9. Hi On affinity designer and affinity photo, I can delete locked layers without remove the padlock.. Is it a bug ?
