  1. I have some questions about the color samplers in the Info Panel of Affinity Photo. I use CMYK samplers a lot when doing critical color work, especially on skin tones. 1. What size is the sampler? (1 pixel, 3x3, 5x5, etc?) I am assuming it is a single pixel sample, but I am not sure. A single pixel can be misleading, so I'd like to use a larger average sample size. 2. Can you change the sample size? If so, how? Will the Info panel sample size be same as what you select using the EyeDropper Tool if you select something other than "point sample"? In other words, if I select a 5x5 sample size with the Eyedropper Tool, with the sampler in the Info panel also be a 5x5 average sample? 3. When selecting various color modes for the samplers (i.e., RGB, LAB, CMYK, HSV), what color space is used to report that data. For example, if I am working on an sRGB document, but wish to set a sampler to CMYK, which CMYK profile is used to report the numbers. A conversion is required from one color space to another to report accurate numbers. Does AP use the default color spaces and rendering intents to do this conversion, or is it some sort of generic table? Thanks.
  2. Hi all, I'm fairly new with Affinity (loving it so far), but I can't find a way to see the values of an 32-bit image in the Color Sampler Info panel. No matter what mode I use it seems to always clip to 255 which is not the case of my image. Cheers, Juan
  3. Something that I find handy in PS is that the color sampler eyedropper can be configured to measure the color of a single pixel, like AD. But it can also average a 3 by 3, 5 by 5, 11 by 11, 31 by 31, 51 by 51 or 101 by 101 pixel squares. Probably overkill, but the concept is great when there is a bunch of noise or a fine texture in the sample area. It can also be configured to look at the selected layer only or all layers, which is also handy. Can we get something like that in AD?
