  2. It is entirely possible that my thinking has gone wrong, but I am unable (sometimes) to change the color of a previously colored rectangle. Notice below that have the rectangle behind the word Margaritaville selected and both the fill and stroke color are pink/red. However, the background of the rectangle remains blue. Has my thinking gone awry or is there a problem here? Thanks
  3. This is relatively minor feature request, but I would like to have another option for the size of the color swatches. At the moment the Large option is too large for my taste, but the medium option is too small. Perhaps create a size between these, and rename the Large option into extra large?
  4. I am preparing some info for a client as I am recommending the Affinity suite to them as they don't have professional designers and thus do not want to pay the monthly subscription fee for Adobe. Right now all they would need is Photos as they are using Canva *shudder* for their design work. They have recently rebranded and are very particular on their colour for print but keep sending RGB print files which is a problem as it obviously converts different then the CMYK makeup they have chosen with the rebranding. To make a long story short I think part of the problem is the pictures they are using in Canva being RGB and want a simple solution for them to convert to CMYK. In Photoshop this is a simple thing, I open the RGB image in Photoshop and simply go to Image>Mode and select CMYK. Other adjustments can be done after this. What is the equivalent in Affinity Photo? I am hunting around the software (v1) and cannot find this. Can someone point me in the right direction for a simple conversion to CMYK?
  5. Hi, this thing has been driving me crazy, but I couldn't find anything helpful via search. When using Designer 2, all colors from the "Grays" swatches or selected via other methods have a reddish hue on screen that I cannot get rid of. It's most obvious with grays. Exporting to e.g. PDF they go back to being neutral gray when viewing the PDF in a third-party viewer. It's most clearly illustrated by this screenshot: In my opinion, these colors on screen should look the same. It also shows that it's not a mis-calibrated monitor or other Windows color management problem, since internally for Windows, the GPU and the monitor, the color of these two boxes should be identical, but they are not: The PowerToys color picker identifies the left as (192, 192, 192) and the right as (188, 178, 175). Changing a different Document Color Format (RGB, Gray, CMYK) has not effect. Neither does changing the Document Color Profile. My monitors are being calibrated using a Calibrite colorchecker. I do not notice similar behavior in other non-Affinity applications. As far as I can tell, this did not happen in Designer 1. Does anyone have any helpful hints? Yaisog hue.afdesign
  6. Color selection bug when selecting a color using controls with numeric text fields on Color Chooser. Turning OpenCl on and off has no effect. Win10 / Publisher/Designer/Photo V2 color chooser bug.mp4
  7. In other Mac desktop apps, moving colors around is a simple matter of drag and drop. When I want to use a color in Publisher that I've defined in another application (for example in Color Slurp), I expected to be able to drag the color swatch (a macOS term) from Color Slurp into the Color palette and just drop it on the circle showing the foregound color of the selected object. Unfortunately, this doesn't work. I also have not had success dragging into the Swatches palette, or into the "Fill" and "Stroke" color wells in the toolbar. None of the color picker options in the popup button of the Color tab of the popover which opens when you click these color wells accept drags either. The only way I've found to reliably import a color is to copy its RGB hex value, open the popover from the color well, select "RGB Hex Sliders" and paste the 6-character hex code into the # box. This is super cumbersome. 😞 Is there a way to drag and drop colors from other apps that I'm missing? If not, is there some simpler way to import a color from a color well elsewhere in macOS?
  8. Hey all, turns out I've managed to import a wrong color profile via the Publisher app on my iPad and want to remove it. I'm having a bit of a hard time trying to figure out how and/or where to find it. Does anyone know how to handle or delete user-imported colour profiles? Any pointers would be appreciated! Cheers! Dennis
  9. Hey, recently I transferred to a new workflow that includes using a different Display Transform (AgX) for my images. Since AgX is compatible with OpenColorIO, I tried setting a destination for an .ocio profile (in the Colour preferences settings) both in Photo and Designer, then restarted the programs to apply the new settings, but **nothing seemed to change**. Later, I tried to do the same with Filmic's ocio, ACES' ocio, different ocio configs (v1.0 & v2.0)... No luck, still no change, all ocio setting are still greyed out. To be more specific, both the OCIO Adjustment layer and the 32-bit Preview windows have all the associated settings greyed out (shown in screenshots), as if there was no ocio config set. I looked around forums looking for a solution, but after hours of research, I have not found a solution, nor haven't encountered someone else having this specific issue. (This is the exact config I am trying to import: https://github.com/sobotka/AgX-S2O3) Any ideas where could be the problem? Thank you!
  10. I have many suggestions to improve this little useful feature; -Default color button; returns the primary/secondary colors to black and white. -Change Appearance to stroke/fill mode in Pen,Rectangle and other Shape related tools and also in curve edit mode; Because I think this feature is acting like Affinity Designer's feature when I'm using pen mode. you don't need secondary color when using these tools and it confuses me most of the time. -Change the appearance of the Color picker, somehow it looks like it doesn't belong there, maybe because the tip is not aligned with the circle next to it. -Right click is empty so it can be binded to choose secondary color, and to choose stroke color in pen mode. -Recent colors could be next to Color picker because there is enough space in every color selection panel( i.e. wheel based), for me this is important because it makes my workflow really faster. It's not visible in other slider modes. Also it could be added to Tools under the primary/secondary color viewer, for the tablets it could be really useful.
  11. To be sure, I won't include the actual copyrighted material, but I've included examples below to clarify my question. I have a high-resolution map of an area in black and white, and then a color version in lower resolution. I want to merge the two images, to get a more detailed map combined with color information. Figure 1 and 2 are the two sample images, and figure 3 is when merging them with the color blend mode. It does not give a proper result, with missing and washed out colors. Examples would be the orange roads completely disappearing and lines in the Wellington Barracks area disappearing, in addition to a generally washed-out image. No other blend modes give a good result either, but I might be missing something important. Figure 1: Figure 2: Figure 3 (merged BW + color):
  12. Hello. When I want to change something's color that uses one of my Global Colors it automatically changes color tool to Tint. It annoys me because there is only one slider and nothing else and I must switch it manually to Wheel every time when I want to change color of certain object without changing the Global Color. Can I somehow change it to use automatically Wheel for example? If not - it would be a nice, user friendly function.
  13. Good afternoon. I'm having problems with the color fill in affinity designer 2.1 on PC. Could it have to do with the fact that the figure I want to fill with color was made in an "architectural" model? I have tried to see in the manual if that model has any color restriction but it does not say anything. Please help. Thank you!!
  14. Greetings, I know what you're thinking - "this guy didn't search the forums before posting"…. I actually have been researching extensively for several weeks now, including several similar posts in this forum, and I've concluded that either my situation is unique or I'm just more dense than your average user (these may not be mutually exclusive lol). So, as the title suggests, I am searching for guidance on color correction on underwater photos. I'll preface by stating I am NOT a photographer, so my knowledge of post-processing technique is frustratingly minimal. It is for that reason that I had previously just written off my failures, just accepting really dismal diving photos. That changed when I was recently introduced to an iOS app called "Dive+". On a whim, I decided to run its color correction function on several shots I had on my phone, and I was blown away by the results! In more than one case, I actually "discovered" fish and corals in my photos that were previously invisible! The ease with which the shots were transformed has inspired me to re-visit touching up many of my underwater shots, but as you can imagine - iOS is certainly not the best or most efficient environment to do it. Re-visiting all the tutorials and articles on the topic, however, has brought me right back to where I began - slightly less crappy photos and a lot of swearing. It seems the majority of the methods described in tutorials (even those for photoshop or other editors) just don't produce similar results for me as they do in the examples shown. For instance, the vast majority of underwater correction guides suggest beginning at adjusting white balance. In the examples, adjustments produce immediate color and contrast improvements, while my photos simply turn from "all blue" to "all green". Additionally, suggested techniques using levels invariably begin with minimizing black levels and maximizing white…. In all my photos, these positions are already selected (and moving them in opposite directions only worsens the output). While I'm certainly willing to tackle a mild-to-moderate learning curve, I have no aspirations of professional photography. What's nagging me is the ease with which this free phone app is able to drastically improve my photos, as well as my inability to determine exactly HOW it corrects the images so I can replicate the process. Below is a random photo from my collection that I hope will better clarify what I'm attempting (and failing) to achieve: This is my original photograph: This image shows the output from the Dive+ iOS app: Applying "Auto" White Balance to the image in AP makes no discernable difference. When manually selecting a neutral area (white dot indicates the area I selected) using the white balance "picker" as most tutorials suggest, a green overlay appears as shown below: This final image shows my sliders for the Levels adjustment layer. Note that the sliders for black/white levels are already at opposite extremes, negating the ability to adjust in the way most tutorials have suggested. The sliders for master/red/blue/alpha all have identical positions. I've attached the original photo in case anyone is feeling gracious enough to play around with it. The edits described above are certainly not the only ones I've tried - I've been playing with pretty much every setting I can find in photo, develop, and tone mapping personas. While I am able to make some minor improvements to my underwater shots, they still don't compare to the difference I get with one tap on the iOS app. Furthermore, the results are very inconsistent compared to the app. For instance, I have freshwater dive photos that have a green saturation in place of the blue shown in this example. Results from the app on those photos are equally impressive, yet the only similarity in my manual edits is the lackluster result. I'd love to know what type of algorithm this app is using so that I can create some type of similar macro or workflow for editing in AP. Heck, I'd even gladly pay to add Dive+ to my workflow if it were available on the desktop, but it is iOS/Android only. If anyone can offer guidance on what I'm doing wrong, or direct me to any tutorial resources that are Affinity-specific, I would greatly appreciate it! Sincere thanks in advance for any advice you have! Best, Kirk ***NOTE: I have no affiliation with the Dive+ app, nor any software mentioned. It is not my intention to present Dive+ as an alternative or competitor to Affinity Photo; my impression is that the latter is a much more capable product in the hands of a knowledgeable user (which I am obviously not!).
  15. It would be nice if the color squares in the palette tab would be bigger so that it will be easier to select them with the cursor. I work on a smaller 13" screen, so it can be a bit difficult to select colors since the icons are so small.
  16. Hi guys, I have created a color gradient in a layer fx (see image) - now I want to copy that gradient somehow or ideally make it a swatch/global gradient. But I don't see how. Thanks in advance, Stefan.
  17. this is happening in all v2 programs but right now, i'm having difficulty in publisher. attached are screenshots of the problem. first shot is choosing the top grunge overlay layer to invert. second shot is ALL THE LAYERS getting inverted. can't figure out how to invert ONLY that which i've chosen. thank you.
  18. Hi, In this Affinity Photo Tutorial I show you how to improve the contrast and coloring of a low-contrast photo on a rainy day. For me, this day was emotional but the photo was disappointing because of the rain and the low light. So I found a way to rescue some of my impressions of my hiking day. I wish you fun. Ciao Jack
  19. Please fix the icons to contrast when the menu item is highlighted in blue. The icon will disappear. On the screenshot is the most painful place in ui, but wherever there is a blue backlight, the icons do not change their state, because of this they are hard to read
  20. Hi, In this Affinity Photo tutorial I show how to remove haze while preserving the fog and getting the colors back. The haze filter got over the years a new and improved engine and adjustments. I wish you fun and inspiration. Ciao Jack
  21. In Design 2 can the color of multiple layers, in a group, be changed without changing each layer individually?
  22. Implemented in Designer so far - the swatch reflow is tricky but this works currently. Also Mac and Windows version behave differently and affinity saves .clr files on Mac rather than .afpalette. This is the best swatch picker pattern by far as in the way it groups hues and tints makes color selection so much easier very glad to have go this to work. This version uses a 20 swatch row length.
  23. Thanks to this tool: https://github.com/philippbosch/tailwind-swatches I put together a tailwind palette have fun! tailwind.afpalette tailwind-swatches.clr
  24. Hello. I have a question or even a suggestion for implementing an additional function for color correction. I am engaged in photography and video. And to paint my videos I wanted to use the 3D LUT program for detailed painting, but then I updated the program of that feature in Davinci Resolve 17. But mostly I edit in Final Cut, some in Premire Pro from Adobe, and not everyone has the opportunity to work with color so selectively. For this most use and load a LUT. I myself have used Affinity Photo to create a LUT for a video. But! This "Color Warper" tool gives you more options for color correction. The killer ability to create masks based on color without using the selection tool. This is just awesome! I think that you should think about implementing this function in Affinities products. It also comes in handy for photographers to edit their work. It is a very flexible tool. Thanks!
  25. Hello Affinity fam! I would like to start using these forums more often and share with you the pieces I'm creating. Here is my latest completed piece. I leave you the information of the piece below. Greetings and thank you so much! https://i.imgur.com/d52WZnm.jpg
