  1. The pdf passthrough is a very good feature but till now it is not perfect. I send you a publisher file with 3 placed pdfs. in the background two logos with black that is only 100% black. In the foreground one page of a publication. The main text again is 100% black. (only the monkey is not 100% black) When I export to pdf x4 one of the logos (the star) becomes 4 coloured black. The other yellow logo is set to overprint black and the whole page text is NOT overprinted black When exporting to ready for printstudio both logos blacks are 100% black, and the text is NOT ove
  2. Hello everyone, I bought an Epson XP-15000 and I'm trying to print from affinity photo on MacOs. I've done the soft proof correctly and now I'm in Print menu but I have some doubt. About color matching I set up this: But here in printer features there are a large number of parameters. How can I set them, please?
  3. I'm having a problem with affinity photo not transferring exr files rendered in blender with the color transform chosen inside blender. I remember this having worked in the past, so I don't know wether I accidentally changed anything. I rendered an image in blender with a filmic color transform and saved it as a 32 bit exr. Here is what it looks like in blender with the color management settings. And here is what it looks like upon opening the file in affinity photo. (Side-by-side closeup). The highlights are over-exposed and it looks like the srgb color transform in blender. So
  4. I've been corresponding with MagCloud/Blurb tech support, trying to pin down what they think might be the right Publisher settings for PDFs submitted to them. It's uncharted territory. They don't have experience yet with Affinity Publisher — they have InDesign and QXP templates but none for Publisher — and Serif hasn't commented much about Magcloud/Blurb that I know of. I did a lot of book pagination in the past, but it was always someone else who did the final prepress work. Blurb has a page that could be useful for people like me who don't have much experience with setting up documents
  5. I am trying to print an 8 page booklet of photos in Affinity Publisher. The colors lose some saturation when i print it out on Matte paper as i would expect. I am used to soft proofing in Lightroom, which has a lot of control for specific papers. Within Affinity, i believe soft proofing is only available in Affinity Photo, so i am trying to create a workflow to boost the saturation for the paper type, but ultimately print it out of Affinity Publisher. When I opened an image in AP, I applied the ICC profile for Inkpress Print Plus Matte two sided paper on the soft proof layer. The color sh
  6. I don't know much about color management, so I always find photo colors are not accurate when processing them. My monitor is not wide-gamut. Colorspace of my camera RAW file can be set to sRGB or Adobe RGB. Which one should I choose? Photos are mainly used for web, but I occasionally pick some of them for printing. 1. When the raw file is sRGB, how should I set the default value of color option in Affinity Photo, and the exporting option when exporting a jpg for web, or exporting other format for printing? 2. When the raw file is Adobe RGB, then how should I set them? Tha
  7. Has anyone been able to import palettes to Designer on the iPad? I work with Montana brand spray paint and want to be able to import and/or their entire color palette. or do I have to use the eyedropper to import each color individually and name it individually? Also wondering if there is a way to rearrange the colors within the palette list view?
  8. I use Affinity Phote (1.6.4.104) on an Acer Notebook with Windows 10 and an attached wide gamut monitor (EIZO CS2420). The screens are profiled with i1 display. The bug is, that Photo always displays colors in relation to the profile of the first monitor. Im my environment this is the notebook screen with a sRGB profile. So Photo treats the wide gamut monitor like a sRGB monitor. Conequently Photo displays colors on the wide gamut monitor over saturated. I could verify the assumption by activating an ICC profile with interchanged color channels, which delivers a very strong effect (red becomes
  9. Color management is a major issue for many who post in these forums, yet I have not seen anything here about this problem in Windows 10 version 1903. Monitor calibration using a Spyder5Pro failed the other day under Windows 10 Pro x64 version 1903. The response from Datacolor is that Windows color management was broken with the release of version 1903. The problem affects all manufacturers of calibration equipment. Various solutions were suggested, none of which are sure to work. Those that might work can be expected to fail following another calibration or Windows update. An Internet sea
  10. Would be nice to be able to export luts or total image adjustments as an ICC profile, this is something Photoshop has been able to do for ages.
  11. I'm exporting my document as a PDF-X3 file. However the output pdf doesn't appear to have the correct profiles assigned for the contained images. Specifically, in the PDF all my images with AdobeRGB profile look flat as if they were incorrectly assigned an sRGB profile (assigned not converted). JPEG images with sRGB profiles look fine in the output PDF-X3. Embed profiles is ticked. I'm using the trial which is 1.7.2. Color format is CMYK/8 and profile is the Blurb ICC profile.
  12. I noticed something quite unpleasant in all 3 apps checking out the final Publisher … Color management does not seem to work properly: While all Adobe apps display 100% cyan correctly on my hardware calibrated monitor (EIZO CG 277), this is clearly not the case with Affinity apps. Since we already have to pay attention to correct coloring in the layout phase, this would almost be a knock-out criterion for us if color (especially in the pre-press area of important boundary areas) could not be displayed correctly in the Affinity apps. I have of course checked the color settings in
  13. Hello, when I place a rgb-photo into a cmyk-document, is it correkt, that Affinity Photo converts automaticly the photo into the cmyk-modus? Greetings Frank
  14. Dear Affinity Users and Developers We’re just in the process of evaluating Affinity Publisher (tested with 1.7.0.305 and 1.7.0.312) and we’ve come upon a problem with the PDF/X export: In our workflow our print PDF files are checked in Adobe Acrobat against the preflight profile PDFX-ready Sheetfed Offset Classic HQ V1.5. Among other things this profile checks the MD5 checksums of the used ICC profile against a pre-defined list of profiles known to be appropriate for offset printing. When exporting a PDF as PDF/X-1a with the ICC profile ISO Coated v2 300% (ECI) from Affinity Pub
  15. In an attempt to get my head around Publisher’s PDF export behavior (compared to Adobe’s which I’m rather familiar with), I stumbled upon this thread which only touches some of my problems: Some settings in the export process (under File > Export > PDF > More) don’t seem fully developed yet, so I hope to find some clarity here: PDF/X-1a: The standard only allows CMYK and spot colors, so the options “As document” and “Grayscale” don’t make much sense, right? PDF/X-4: The standard allows several color models, but if I want to output CMYK-only (despite enjoying other X-
  16. So, down the rabbit hole of color management for us! I'm on a Windows 10, 64-bit operating system with a run-of-the-mill Dell P2414H. I purchased a ColorMunki Display to calibrate my monitor. In the preferences of the program delivered with it, you have the choice of ICC profile version 2 or version 4. It defaults to version 4, but my Googling appears to suggest that version 4 may be problematic in numerous situations. However, I'm also having a hard time finding recent AND reliable info (ironically X-rite's own information is very dated). Of course, I'm most concerned
  17. I'm trying to touch-up my Drone photos, but they look horrible in Affinity Photo compared to Windows Preview or even Gimp Here, the original file has a very very smooth gradient coming from that lamp. But as soon as I open the file in Affinity Photo, the glow from the lamp turns in to blocky color bands.. It's almost like it tries to convert it to web-only colors or something because the quality is horrible. (below, you will probably see some banding in your web-browser, it's actually WORSE in Affinity Photo) Download this image and view it locally, to see it without banding. I
  18. I have to have good quality images for my YouTube channel and I have been reliably using Affinity for a while now. It's been producing some good stuff, but about a week ago it's been doing this: In the attached image - The far right is what I have in Affinity ready to be exported. When I export it, the center image is what I get no matter what type of export I do (PNG, JPG, etc.) It's all washed out and bright, I've used ImageGlass as well as Windows native photo viewing software in order to look at it and this is what turns up. Even stranger, if I open the center image in MS Paint, I get
  19. Hi, For some reason, starting about a week or two ago, Affinity Photo now imports my raw files with a dull pale greenish tint. If I import the same photo in Photoshop CS17, it looks fine. I have color management turned on in both programs, converting Sony RAW from Adobe RGB (98) to ProPhoto. I am in Windows 10. Where do I start? I don't think Win 10 is color managing.
  20. Hello everybody ! First, LOVE to the Affinity team and the software because it's great ! The question that I have is about color editing in affinity photo "photo persona". I'm working a lot on color tweaking now to get some great emotional and powerfull results ! I really love using the channel mixer adjustment to change colors, and mostly toutching the CMYK, because you can change the colors on the picture kind of individually. On the other side, when you are tweaking colors using the mixer adjustment layer with RVB, all the colors of the picture are moving when you toutc
  21. RAW development in Photo limits color gamut to sRGB. This is independent from the color settings. On my system color space is set to Adobe RGB. See picture. The status line during raw development shows "sRGB... (linear)" for a brief moment. See second picture. May be this is the bug in the processing cue. Color gamut was checked with softproof layer. No other colors than sRGB, i.e. no grey areas. Same raw file with different raw development tool results in wider gamit, i.e. appearing gray areas when checking against sRGB. The behaviour is in Photo 1.6.4.104 and in the beta versi
  22. Using 1.6.4.104, Windows10, Epson SureColor P800, Xrite 1iDisplay calibrated 4k monitor I'm seeing very strange color shifts and a much lighter image printing using the app for color management. I'm choosing the correct Epson provided profile. When I let the printer control color it is fine. Is this a known issue? Any workarounds?
  23. I have noticed a problem with Affinity Photo's rendering intent. The brightness values of digital color represent the square root of the brightness as perceived by humans. We are able to spot differences in contrast much better in dark image areas. The problems start when images are blurred. The average of two square roots is less (or equal, but in most cases not) than the average of the actual brightness values. The purpose of the 'perceptual' rendering intent is to provide natural looking colours. It achieves that by squaring the rgb values, then applying the image manipulation and afterward
  24. 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.
  25. Hi I recently have a heatmap that I wanted to edit in affinity designer. But when i inserted the image into affinity designer (drag and release), it loses its color dynamic range. Here is what it looks like in windows photo And in affinity designer: I suspect this is due to color management issues. Anyone has the same issue?
