  1. I have a color cast issue, in Affinity Photo, that I am trying to explain, in terms of the cause. I use Nik Silver to generate B&W pixel layers. Most of the time I am using RGB16, ProPhoto. I was working on an image and noticed green and red in a layer that should be grayscale! I have two computers, with dual monitors - all calibrated with Xrite. I used the color picker to confirm that the RGB values are the same, so the areas are gray, but the display is not! The layer is the output from Nik SilverFX, without any toning applied. I changed the pixel layer to grayscale, then the color bands disappeared. I then tried various color spaces. Strangely, the color cast that manifests in ProPhoto is removed if I switch to sRGB: I then gave ROMM a shot, but the color cast returns: I then tried LAB16 and HDR32 - no color cast (I didn't upload the HDR32 example): I am trying to understand what's going on, and how to explain the display output, at least to myself. But, I can't since I don't really know what's at issue. I also exported the file, about 572 MB, as a PSD, then opened it in PS CS6. I don't see the color casts, banding of red and green in PS. So, I am inclined to conclude that: -it's not a hardware issue, as the banding shows up on two different computers (Nvidia or Intel graphics; Windows 10 Pro; four different monitors - all Xrite calibrated, recently) -is a software issue, probably related to Affinity Photo or Nik, since the color space does impact the display within AP. ProPhoto and ROMM seem to have the same issues. Output files (JPG, PNG, TIFF) do not show the color issues. I generally Develop into ProPhoto 16-bit, to start, and only switch to sRGB and/or 8-bit on export. I searched the forum content and could not find a similar color space issue. Perhaps I don't know which terms will produce the similar issues? Thanks for any suggestions, Greg
  2. If I open a RAW file (I have tried with arw from Sony and CR2 from Canon) in Lightroom CC or Captur One Pro or Photoshop CC (working color space set as ProPhoto) I can see that all 3 show me same colors. If I open the same raw file in affinity ( working space se as ProPHoto as well) the image is shown with faded colors and a green cast. I want to migrate from Ps to Affinity Photo ( as I already done with Lr to C1) but if I can't fix this color management issue I cannot! HELP ME PLEASE
  3. There seems to be a problem in Affinity Photo with viewing files that are in a different color space than the working color space set in Preferences. Example: I have a simple file with a grey gradient (16Bit TIFF, ProPhoto RGB). When I open this in Affinity Photo there is a slight orange color cast in some of the dark greys and a slight blue color cast in some of the not so dark greys. See attached file "AP-vs-PS.png" (screenshot of the same file open in AP (left) and Photoshop CC (right)). The file is not changed by AP. I can work on it - ignoring the color casts - , safe it again and open it in Photoshop and there is still no color cast in Photoshop. The problem is just the viewing of the file in AP. In this example I use a file with an embedded ProPhoto RGB profile. But I have the same problems when using a file with an embedded eciRGB or AdobeRGB profile. Color settings in AP: RGB color profile: sRGB; convert open files to working space unchecked (see screenshot "AP-color-settings.png") Color settings in PS: Working space RGB: sRGB; Profile Mismatches: Ask when opening checked (and when opening, I choose "use the embedded profile (instead of the working space)") (see screenshot "PS-color-settings.png") As a workaround I can set the working space in AP to the same as the embedded profile of the file I open. But this is not how color management should work! Others have asked similar questions but I don't think they were ever answered.
  4. PRO PHOTO COLOR PROFILE DOESN'T STICK what I am doing wrong with preferences??? how about a tutorial on preferences ( performance details, color profiles, etc.....)??? that would be great, absolutely love the software, serious creativity booster!!! cheers
  5. Hi Guys, I Really like both AP and AD, I am however stumbling upon a problem using different colour profiles when roundtripping via tiff from lightroom (version 4). Simply put, when using sRGB and Adobe RGB the colours in LR (library module) and AP are consistent. Using the ProPhoto profile however, the colours are 'wrong'/different in AP as are the grey levels. I searched the forum but could not find a suitable answer. Any editing using this preferred profile is therefore pointless. I also checked the file in preview and Pixelmator, both were next to identical to the LR view leaving only AP different. I am attaching two screen shots; one from LR in library module, the other from AP. Same tiff file. Also a screenshot from the file information is attached. The ProPhoto icc is available on my system. System Information: 2013 Mac Pro, Dual D300 OS: El Capitan Lightroom 4.4 AP 1.4 Spyder 3 Color Calibration (also checked with the default profile from apple, no joy) Hope you can help or fix the problem. Wouter
  6. Why is my profile SRGB when I export when it was PROPHOTO RGB as I was editing in Affinity ???. Please find attached JPEG of my color profiles preferences Cheers!
