  1. I set up a new document (for a paperback book) and chose grayscale/8 in the initial set-up box. But when I add a text frame, it is CMYK with values of 72-68-67-88. Is this correct, or should I change the text box’s setting to grayscale too? And while I’m here, are those the best CMYK settings for type, or should it be 0-0-0-0? Thanks.
  2. Please add an option to disable the colour wheel from rotating when selecting a different colour. I want to have the orientation fixed, so I can more easily predict where I need to move the picker to.
  3. Hi all, is there a way on Ipad to copy and paste the color between the tools or effects? On desktop I would just copy and paste the HEX value, but I don’t know how to achieve it on tablet version. Regards, Maciej
  4. the problem would be the DJI mini 2 and 3 photos taken. no problem with photos taken with JPG. DNG photos are completely different. I have tried different settings for color profiles, hardware coding. a completely different PC i tried there too uygan this problem. windows 10 and 11 tried.
  5. I made this based on this Youtube tutorial by Greg Gunn. It is an Affinity designer document, that lets you quickly test your color palette. Mainly aimed at website designers. Nothing fancy, it uses global color swatches, so you can quickly visualize it by changing in one place. Here are some screenshots from the file Download the template - Color test 2.afdesign
  6. I am using Mac Pro 2019 with Asus PA32UCX. Monitor colour was calibrated. However When I open the file with Preview and Affinity Designer, the colour is totally different. The print screen is attached here. The left one is Expansion Slot Utility and right one is print screen of that. They both are same colour but soon as I add to Affinity Designer, the colour is washed out and totally different. Which one is correct one ? How can I match the colour or get accurate colour ?
  7. Greetings all, I know the negative to positive conversion topic has been discussed ad-nauseam. But this is a bit different. Please stay with me on this one. Here are my first steps: 1. Bring in the color negative MF0226_Neg.png below 2. Sample the rebate color to remove the orange cast (MF0226_rebate) and create a fill layer filled with the rebate color. Then change the fill layer blend mode to divide which yields MF0226 Neg and Rebate below. The rebate has been neutralized leaving only a negative without the cast. 3. Then I use the Invert command from the Adjustment Layers which flip the neg to a pos (MF0226_Inverted). NOW here is the problem: I have an overall blue cast that cannot be balanced out. I did process this Ektar 100 film at home using CineStill chemistry. The chemistry was new and just mixed. I checked and rechecked my mixing volumes and temperatures - all OK. Any ideas?
  8. The program displays all colors in a yellow-white color. sRGB, CMYK, Lab... all my color settings and calibration are correct. Both Photo and designer programs have the same error. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the program 4 times but still no solution. I need help.
  9. ¡Hola, amigos! Yo soy – ? – ‘bien’ ? That's close enough for government work, right? Right. Today’s Big Question: How You Desaturate Dem Layer What Got Dem Color In It, Hah? A simple question asked by a Simple Mind. Please ’splain me where I can find a simple equivalent of the Photoshop command Layer > Desaturate to remove color from a layer so that it becomes black and white and still responsive to Blend Modes. I've tried the HSL panel with spotty results. If HSL FX is applied as a PARENT layer, it functions marginally well. When the HSL FX are applied as the CHILD layer (a/k/a 'mask'), it's a whole ’nuther story. At that point, any ‘finesse’-ness is gone. Adjustments made to the Child mask layer do not play nice with the Parent layer above. Insofar as experimenting with other FX (live or not), I continue to come up empty. HSL appears to be as close as I can get to where I want to be, but it's half-a-league, half-a-league as regards color removal with xparency FX and blend modality intact. In a perfect world, there should be a way to electronically tell the ware ‘Hey! I want the color removed from this layer. Just do it, ’kay.’ … but if there is such a method, I haven't yet found it. Oh please oh please oh please … Prithee, envelop me in thy Secret Sauce which removeth Color from a layer so that it majickally becometh un Noir et Blanc (and the Blend Modes are still next door). Thanks in advance to all.
  10. Hi guys, here's a new video about how to remove any white color in your photo with only a few clicks in Affinity Photo. I hope you enjoy this video, thank you!
  11. Hi, The title is my problem. Here's how it's working. Example I make a CMYK document, and set the color of a black box to 30, 30, 30, 100. The color picker detects that exact color. I'll export the above into a PDF as PDF/X-1a:2003 or X4, and the included export setting image. Then when I import that PDF into Affinity Designer, the color picker detects different values... The box is now 79, 76, 70, 95. This same thing happens with every color. A 100, 0, 0, 0 cyan will be 72, 12, 0, 0, and so on. When exporting the same elements into a jpg, this problem doesn't happen. See for yourself in the afdesign file here. Question What can I do to get the exact values I set when printing via PDF, so I can still allow non rasterized elements to scale without losing quality?? I read around, and even InDesign seems to have this same problem... Maybe Affinity Designer is ignoring the embedded ICC profile of the imported image??... I just don't want $1,000 worth of prints to turn out bad over something so small. Thanks! problems with color values.afdesign
  12. is there any issue with inferring a LUT in a full ROMM RGB environment? It looked very off (just overall bad quality) when I did so, but when I converted everything to sRGB everything looked perfect. What are your experiences with this? is there a recommended color space or did I just do something wrong somewhere? (I had original files and AFP files so I knew how it's supposed to look)
  13. Though I've owned affinity for a while, I've just recently started using it for a project I'm working on. I'm wondering, perhaps I've missed it, but as a developer, is there a way to store a particular colors in variables? Say I had something like mainTheme = "#FFFFFF" or something. Then I could have certain assets reference that color. If I decide to change the mainTheme color, all assets which reference it will automatically change. I looked underneath the swatches which is where I intuitively feel I would find such an option, but didn't see it. Is there another way to accomplish this? I could write it down on paper, but then if I change it, it'd be absolutely tedious to update all references. Please help?
  14. Hej! I ordered to print a photobook a few weeks ago. I'm not professional designer, but I don't like options for print available, so I've decided to make this photobook with Publisher. When the photobook was printed it turned out that it was too dark. I can't say that the PDF that I've made was the same dark as printed, but still I've decided to make V2 of the photobook. I've never edited any pictures using Publisher, so according to youtube videos there's Photo persona for that. And tried to use auto-correction: So strange. Okay, Command+Z and let's try to use auto-color Well, it looks something is going wrong. My question is more about is in Publisher the way to edit photos slightly (brightness/contrast/colorbalance) before sending to print?
  15. Dear community, Is there any support for generating colors of your own choice on the internet for affinity softwares or something like color palletes or wheels. Please any one help out. Thanks, Aquil
  16. I'm still new to Affinity so I'm sure this has been asked and answered but I'm not sure what to search. I drew a circle using a brush, which created the image on a pixel layer. I would now like to change the color of this circle. The only place or way I've found to do this is to do a color overlay, which doesn't really change the color of the item. Is there a better way to do this? And what should I be searching for in the help to find the answer? Thank you, Wills
  17. 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!
  18. Hi I would like to have those two settings "by default" for each new documents from presets (or not)… (see screenshots below) I cannot find how ? Can I edit the existing default presets or should I create new ones ? It also seems that sometimes those settings are changing without no reason… I would be nice to have a common synced setting for all three apps (with the colour profile setting of course) Thanks a lot ! (Mac OSX HS 10.13.6 / AF 1.10.1)
  19. I have large images with pixel shapes (representing cells) and each cell type has a certain colour (6 in total, plus black background). I need to rapidly colour-test different colours to find the best combination for visibility. I have not been able to find a solution anywhere, as most such approaches are about defining a recognisable shape and then altering colours - this is about changing many 'cells' across a large image in one go. Thanks
  20. I made a commission for someone and it looked fine on multiple monitors. But going to print, the colors changed a lot. The eyes suddenly became purple. I narrowed this particular issue down to the way color overlays are handled. I feel rasterizing the document will fix this, but this is a serious problem. I disabled color management in printer and chose software handling, with the color profile loaded from the manufacturer. Relative colometric. The deep purple was made a lot lighter, but then the totally colorless gray eyes were turned purple. I also had issues making prints on other printers. Can anyone tell me what's going on? EDIT - This is happening in Designer, not Publisher. Can this be moved?
  21. Why is the stroke color icon not a Donut like in Designer (Designer image below). I quite have to undo as I've picked the fill color by mistake.
  22. Is there an option or a trick to keep the color whenever I create a new curve with the pen tool. It is a bit tedious to create a curve, add color, create curve, add color x 1000 times, since my selected color goes from color to nothing (as shown in video). It would make my life much more simpler if I just have to create a new curve with the color already selected. JkCWXsb8s3.mp4
  23. Hey! Is there an easy way to synchronize color palettes so that I have the same colors swatches in all three apps (Windows Version)? Would be helpful as I work a lot with my own collections of colors and sometimes adjust them in one app but have to remember to do it in the other apps too... Thanks for the help. Chris
  24. A simple glow - photo manipulation for beginners. Affinity Photo tutorial. This is for those just starting out in Affinity Photo. I kept the video short and there is so much more to improve the look of the photo, but I just wanted to give you a start. It uses layer fill, HSL, masks and blending modes. https://youtu.be/lsX9UW_rMps
