  1. EDIT: There is an apparently related issue with RAW files. --------------------------------------------------------------- Original clueless question Is this a setting? a bug? I am baffled. But here is the problem: in the photo below you see the Windows 10 Explorer's preview of a photos I took. I looks like the photo in my camera, and like the lighting when I took it. it also looks like that in every editor I have including photoshop. The problem is when I open it in affinity. I ahve no Idea where to go with this. How could I possible color correct it? What is this that I am looking at?
  2. There are a few things I wish would be possible with colors: - Ability to select and delete several colors at once from swatches - When one deletes a global color, the software should ask if one wants it to be replaced by another one.. so that all elements using the deleted color then become the new chosen replacement one (or at least tell the user that he's about to delete a color that is actually used in their graphic. Hope these can be implemented..
  3. The default "stock/generic" color profiles available to choose from for printing do not include any CMYK options for color laser printers, only a variety of RGB profiles.
  4. Hi guys, For example I have a green circle, that will act as a clipping container. I add 3 other object inside this green circle, with clipping. How can I change the green circle's color without unclipping the other objects? I tried, but I can't seem to be able to. Thank you
  5. Greyscale become multicoloured when printing from Affinity Designer. Obviously a conversion to/from color profiles happens inside Designer. How can I prevent this from happening? (This happens to all colours. It is just shown best with greyscale.) My printer expects data in the same colour profile as my AD files working profile. (ISO coated v2 (eci)) When exporting a PDF/X1a and printing with Adobe Acrobat everything is OK.
  6. Hi I started with a photo in Lightroom and exported it as Prophotorgb into affinity photo 1.67 I then duplicated the background layer and edited in nikcolorefx4 unfortunately the color looks completely different to how it was in affinity photo and lightroom. This makes it impossible to judge what adjustments to make. I googled the problem and found that if the macbook pro is using a prophoto rgb mode then the color change doesn't appear to happen unfortunately it makes my screen look quite blue looking. I repeated the process but this time taking it into photoshop and then nik colorefx4 and this time with the native profile the color stayed the same in photoshop lightroom and nikcolorefx4. Using Affinity Photo as host, using brilliance and warmth in nik colorefx4 looks like its been subtly applied however once back in affinity its like a spray tan disaster. maybe its the use of prophotorgb which is causing the problem.
  7. We have HSL right now but it does not allow to create a set of shades for the base color.
  8. Currently in Designer it's really annoying on my eyes when I'm using artboards, and the viewport frame turns from a nice dark grey to a (comparatively) glaring white. My eyes might be a bit more sensitive than usual or whatever, but I find myself being distracted by the inconsistent and glaring viewport colour. It would be really useful if we could customise the background colour a bit - either from a few preset options or just using the colour selection tools. I don't want to just use a rectangle is because it isn't infinite so when I zoom out (which I do often) I'd still get the white colour, and it doesn't save for new documents, so I'd need to make the rectangle all over again. It also covers the background of the empty areas in each artboard. Thanks

    UI design wishlist

    Hi! I am slowly going from Adobe and Sketch over to Affinity, but have some "hiccups" in features. Some of the features I wish for. 1. RGBa 2. Material design assets 3. padding functions on buttons, so that buttons change size based on the text. 4. A function to add "Symbols" in the Assets panel so that if I change one symbol, they all change. 5. Google Material design color swatches. Someone made this 6. Make assets connect to the Affinity account, so when I use a different computer, all my assets will be there. 7. add new Page presets in the "new document" settings. 8. Flowchart 9. Plugin support 10. export to CSS 11. export to XML 12. copy SVG code 13. Pages 14. Shadow options like they have in the sketch app. BTW! I am now only working on AD and AP! love how my workflow has changed and how much more I get done.
  10. Hello! As a Fine Art Printmaker who uses Computer Design tools to create prints for Screen Printing, Lithography, and Intaglio, CNC woodcut, it would be amazing if I could separate colors and control half tones size shape (line, dot, etc) and color. I imagine being able to work in CMYK layers and being able to apply color halftones to shapes based on percentages, or change the size and shape of the individual color channel half toning. It could be applied in any document setup really RGB document with a simulated color / spot process: Red, Yellow, Blue, Purple, Green, Turquoise, Grey and control the halftone percentage, size and shape. grey scale: black, 25% grey, 15% transparent white LAB would be fun, you could control the lightness darkness of the halftones maybe have an option to constrain the gamut inside of lab to a specific set of colors like CMYK but still have lightness control. In my imagination the possibilities are endless for options like this. "MOONSHOT" : to have RIP like printing control inside this program, where I wouldn't have to worry about the printer I am on to get circular halftones (this might be next to impossible but I am ignorant when it comes to the programming side of hardware interactions) this would be just insane and might require a new type of universal file format I have no idea but it's something I dream about, being able to go to Kinko's or some other local digital print shop and be able to print out my files without having to worry about the print shop getting the settings right in their computers and on their printers, the employees being inept, or any other stupid thing that happens because you don't have enough money to buy the hardware that you need. and finally "MOONSHOT": A new type of color selection palette based off of a Warm/Cool, light/dark, transparent/opaque warm adds red cool adds blue lightness adds white darkness adds black transparent/opaque self explanatory but the twist is you pick initial colors as a base and those colors become the colors you base rest of the interactions between the colors on like paint For example: Here is a shorthand RGB two way conversion to Paint/Ink color palette equivalent Red (Pantone Uncoated 032) Yellow (Pantone Uncoated 123) Blue (Pantone Uncoated 300) Purple (Pantone Purple) Green (Pantone Uncoated 354) Turquoise (Pantone Uncoated 312) Grey (Pantone Cool Grey 8) 100% opacity White 15% opacity White mixed or printers black (R 54, G 54, B 57) Black now imagine you have picked these colors as your initial palette and have set them inside of a grid each color has the same basic controls warm/cool: add red/add blue light/dark: add white/add printers black transparent/opaque: increase decrease transparency/opacity Now for example you activate the red, white, and yellow channels you now adjust warm/cool light/dark transparent/opaque sliders around to just work within the constraints of those colors selected from you base palette this gives you a sub palette of yellows oranges and reds based of your real world/RGB equivalents this would work for CMYK as well This would be a great tool to have I think Thank you for reading and for your consideration Nathan Henry
  11. Hello! A picture probably says more than thousand words. Please have a look at the attached image. I'm trying to recreate this "polygon" look. I know how to create a gradient over several objects by selecting them at the same time. Is it possible to add these artifical "steps" over the gradient's colors? Similar to the orange-to-red gradient in the attached image. Or is it all done manually? If you know any other hints on how to create this or similar polygon looks, I'd be happy to know them as well!
  12. I am struggling to manage colour in my workflow from AD to a commercial printer. The commercial print service wants pdf/x-3 2002; I am hoping they can live with 2003 (since that is all that AD offers). More significantly, the AD export panel for pdf/x-3 is not providing me with the opportunity to set the ICC profile or rendering intent. In particular, the AD export panel for pdf/x-3 does not include sRGB or Adobe1998; it includes only the profiles for my own printer (and these are not useful). Furthermore, the ICC option starts off blank, but if I choose any of the profiles then I can't get it back to blank -- and, I have no idea what it means for export when it is blank. Whereas, the later pdf export options (e.g. 1.7) do provide many ICC profile options. None of these provides the ability to set rendering intent. By the way, I can see the difference between colour in pdf/x-3 vs pdf 1.7 (exporting x-3 with the ICC field in its initial blank state, and exporting 1.7 with sRBG) by viewing them in ColorSync Utility. The x-3 export is dull and dark, whereas 1.7 looks as it should. Thanks for any workarounds or advice. Martin Brooks

    Another color palette: fiesta

    Just released a second color palette with support for Affinity's .afpalette format. It's a set of bright, happy colors to lighten up any illustration or design. Get it at creativemarket
  14. I would like to change in the picture the color black to orange. I tried it with and without selecting everything, adding adjustment layers over the menu, the tool window, I tried the color replacement tool - but nothing worked as expected. I am sure that there is an easy way - but I am to stupid to find it. Any help is highly appreciated. project-management.afphoto
  15. Hello, When I go to copy and paste a component of one art board to another, the color hue often becomes tinted. It is driving me nuts! Can someone please tell me if there is a resolution to this? I don't know if I accidentally made an adjustment in my settings that may be causing this. Any help is much appreciated! To help illustrate what I mean, the first image is what I wanted to copy & paste. The second image displays how the image was pasted into the new artboard - tinted with a more transparent look. I did check and opacity for this layer is at 100%. THANK YOU!!!
  16. Greetings Affinity, I was wondering if it would be helpful to have a HEX field available in all color profile palettes/windows. Lately, I've been working in HSL, as I find it easier to target a particular color, and it would be nice to have the HEX code running alongside the sliders (like RGB Hex). Also, I've been using AD to comp web designs and I'm constantly bouncing between RGB Hex and HSL to input HEX colors from a pre-existing brand style guide. Just a thought. :-) Cheers! jB
  17. Hey guys, It would be great if we could have the HEX value input text on all color examples. For instance, when you create a shape, in the top bar properties panel you have the fill color and stroke color, and you have all sorts of color pickers (hue, rgb sliders, hsl color scheme, etc), but only the HEX SLIDERS picker contains the actual input field for the HEX code. It would be great if all these color pickers would contain the hex color code, in UI design this is used a lot Thank you for a great product I am very grateful.
  18. I've accidentally closed the Color Tab and now I can't find where to go to open it back. D: (Affinity Photo)
  19. If me using CorelDraw, coloring Object is very easy use smart Fill or Live paint bucket in Illustrator. in Affinity Designe takes a lot of time for coloring NEED CLOSING NODE, i am work with Pen tool mode Line.
  20. They just came to torture! Inked with brushes with new affinity stabilizer, they are cool! And as always my favorite EGA palette )
  21. Hi, After the latest update of AD I can't find the noise slider to add texture in colour fills. Is that feature removed or moved somewhere? It was cool to add some texture to flat tones or gradients easily by sliding the noise slider. Any insight is appreciated. regards, Raman
  22. Hi there! I copied and pasted a rectangle from one document in Affinity designer to another, and noticed the color looked different. To affinity, both show the same HEX code of ACEEE7 with the same specifications, but it's clear that they're different colors. What's going on here and how to fix it? I assume it's related, I've also noticed the color picker has recently taken a different hue of the color I'm taking. Attached are screenshots.
  23. Hi guys I mainly work with 32bit rendered EXR files. When I'm comping rendered objects into backplates, I need to be able to have coloured masks. This is to ensure shadows that are in alpha (masked), creates the correct tone on the backplate. A coloured mask can for example produce a blueish shadow, where a grey scale mask will produce a grey shadow. Is there perhaps a setting I'm not seeing? Whenever I convert a layer to a mask, it goes greyscale!

    3d LUT trouble

    Hi, just new with affinity photo for mac. I buyed it to play with LUTs and FCPX. I did tutorials on internet, but it's impossible for me to have a result. Tried exporting .tiff picture from FCPX then graded it on AP, did printscreen, tried .jpg and .png, but always the same problem. See pictures. Am I doing something wrong or is it a bug? when the lut is applied on FCPX (I tried two different app to apply the LUT (mLUT and PixelStudio) the result is the same. the weiderst thing is that when I apply the created LUT on the original picture in affinity photo the problem is the same! any idea??? many thanks for the help and sorry for my english... Damien
  25. Question on how to change the angle of the gradient that fills a stroke. Say I have a rectangle. I want to have a stroke that appears from the top left corner and then fades away diagonally toward the bottom right corner (an opacity gradient). When selecting stroke, you can choose a gradient fill but you can't affect the direction that fill occurs at. It just defaults to horizontal. When using the fill option (like when you are filling an entire shape) you can choose to have gradients occur at any angle over any distance by adjusting the slider, but this doesn't seem to be the case when you are using a gradient for a stroke. I can come up with other workarounds obviously by building two rectangles where the front only reveals the edges of the back rectangle and then using an opacity gradient on the back rectangle, but it seems like I'm just missing one button somewhere.
