  1. Similar to this: The idea is to add a setting panel for colors that allow to edit the color of gradients, and objects in general, simultaneously or singular Adding other options for the settings, as saturation or brightness Most important for SVG format files
  2. I love Publisher but IMHO it has the worst colour system I have ever seen (in over 30 years). How did LAB, RGB and CMYK end up on the same palette when I only work in CMYK and the publication was set for CMYK? I NEVER work in LAB. I have 68 colours like this: "Rick 13-EN_No Photo 2 is the name of the publication. Useless as colour information for an in-document palette. It should be simple to create my own custom CMYK palette but instead it's horribly complicated, if not impossible. It's a monumental time waster. Why can I change a colour in this dialogue but not in that one. And then I can only change it in THAT dialogue, but not this one. A lot of things seem too clever by half in Publisher but colour handling is a serious fault in an otherwise pretty good app.
  3. When developing CR2 RAW file, affinitty photo changes the hue of reds. So far, the problem is with reds, no other color is affected. I attach three files, the CR2, the aphoto native and the jpeg exported from affinitty photo. As you may see, the lips are red in the CR2 but oranges in the aphoto file and the jpeg exported. Can tech support tell me how to fix it ? Greetings REDS_CR2.CR2 REDS_APHOTO.afphoto
  4. Below is a snap to help explain what I'm saying. I want to change the green fade to a blue fade. In order to do this I must type in the four CYMK or the three RGB numbers since I cannot drag a color or use the swatches panel to change a color in an effect. One day I hope this can be worked out, I would really be happy if I could use the eye dropper tool to click on the blue adjoining the green fade and have that happen as I work in the color area of the effect panels. That would be a huge help rather than looking up the colors numbers and typing them in.
  5. Only two months into using Affinity Designer here. Starting at some point through the progress of my project, any time I create and type new Artistic Text, a purple highlight appears behind it. I don't remember messing with any settings to make it appear. I've tried to look very carefully at the color options on the Artistic Text object but I can't find anything. What am I missing? This hasn't happened to me during other projects until after the 1.9 update, so there's the possibility of a bug or new feature/setting that I'm not aware of yet. I also attached what the problem looks like in Affinity Designer. The text color was intended to be white, and the color shows as white in the Color tab.
  6. What are color fonts? They are the next big thing in graphic designThey bring multiple colors, shades, textures and transparency to type They include vector shapes, bitmap images or even both into font filesAnything I write here, would just be copying from this website, http://www.colorfonts.wtf/ Have a read through it, then decide if you want colour fonts. I know, that I want it!
  7. It would be very useful to have functions to select the same: Color fill stroke (color / width) Appearance To quickly select all your outlines, or background element in 1 color. Speed is everything. :)
  8. Hi there: I am not sure if this is a bug or not. I am having difficulty selecting a color for a design that I am working on and I am not sure if it is a bug or something else. I use a MacBook Pro 13" running MacOS 10.15.7 (Catalina). The difficulty that I have found relates to selecting different shades of orange - I have put a sample together - included below - which renders perfectly below which I also don't understand. On my machine whether it be the .afdesign file or a JPG/PNG/SVG, all of the colors are rendering as #FF0000. I am trying to figure out why this is happening and would welcome advise/comments. Thanks so much. -Michael
  9. I have a object that changes from grey to some greenish color cast when I apply a 3D fx. All colors within the 3D window have zero color, though I can visually correct by changing the light source color but that's less than accurate. Thoughts?
  10. Hello everyone, Lately I've been working on many grayscale line charts for a research paper and I'm finding one thing very frustrating. See my Screen capture >> When a line is selected their isn't any indication of what color it is? In this case I have the line selected and would like to find its grayscale level in the palette. Is this possible? Thanks
  11. Good morning everyone! I'm new to the forum, my name is Judith Vidal and I'm a concept artist. I've been using affinity photo for a few months for everything that is concept and illustration and this is one of the results of the experience, I hope you like it. You can see more work on my instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jvidaldraw/ Thanks J Vidal.
  12. I searched the forum but did not find this addressed (maybe my search was bad, so please link to topic if I missed it). Opening eps files in different applications always comes with some surprises. This screen dump shows the same eps file opened in AD (1.8x) and Adobe Illustrator CC2018. And I notice a few things. I have converted the document color space to RGB/8 sRGB in both applications and files. As you can see on the screen dump RGB color is slightly different from AI to AD (AI is on the left, AD on the right). As you also can see, layer are better organized in AI than AD. Layers are actually completely missing in AD... (I also tried in 1.9 beta AD but same same). Does anyone have some ideas how to make import/open of eps files in AD preserve layer hierachi better? And get color to match across applications? Or link to a topic that discusses this issue? Thanks in advance.
  13. Just encountered a bug that seems to be still present with wrong color representation (washed out colors) when adding screenshots to Affinity Designer. It's a very similar issue as posted here and is not solved: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/85359-colour-distortion-drives-me-nuts/ https://marketmix.com/de/affinity-designer-photo-fehlfarben-screenshot/ (only German) Here the author sais that it was fixed in 1.6.1 but this bug seems to be back then because I still need to use the workaround from this blog. I try to give as many examples and data so you can track down this bug. - - - Steps to reproduce: 1. Create a screenshot with the mac internal screenshot tool (also tried another one from the app store with similiar results) with Command + Shift + 4 for example. 2. Save it to the desktop 3. Open Affinity Designer 4. Drag the screenshot from desktop into Affinity Designer (or File > New from clipboard or creating a canvas first and then pasting or dragging the screenshot) > Colors in AF are different than the screenshot with the mac preview app (see comparison screenshot below) File "Screenshot Original.png" is attached to this post so you can try it out. - - - Information: - iMac 21,5" Late 2015 - macOS Catalina 10.15.7 - Affinity Designer from the App Store (v1.8.6) - 2 Displays attached (HP E243i & Eizo EV2216W) Screenshot was taken on the internal iMac Display (and also tried it out with the external displays completely disconnected). - - - Screenshots to track down the issue: iMac Display Color Profile (German but relevant info is English) Information on the Screenshot itself (German but relevant info is color space RGB and color profile iMac) Affinity Designer Preferences Affinity Designer Document Setup Screenshot Comparison (left wrong color / right screenshot with mac preview app correct) - - - Other tests and workarounds: When inserting the same screenshot to Adobe XD or other Design apps the colors are fine. So seems to be an Affinity specific issue. Workaround is currently: Opening the screenshot with mac preview app > Tools > Assign profile > Color Sync Profile (Adobe RGB (1998)) > OK Then inserting it to Affinity Designer and the colors are fine and the document setup has set the profile to adobe instead of display. - - - Original Screenshot.png for you to try it out
  14. I'm a 3D artist and all the other tools and software I use are easier to work with and make more sense with the HSV/HSB algorithm. It doesn't have to be the default, but having the option is absolutely necessary IMO.
  15. Hi, I am using the art text box in Affinity photo, and every now and then it will randomly fill in the background of the text box. Even if I delete the whole layer and make a new text box, it will add in the backfill. I have no idea what is triggering it or how to turn it off. The only way I’ve found around it yet is to start a new file all together, which, PAIN. I’ve also tried making sure my secondary color is blank. (See grey behind INKMAGINE in image below.) I feel like this is going to be a simple on/off something but i dunno what.
  16. I am color blind, green blindness. Therefore, it is sometimes a guess if the color in a photo is accurate. Does anyone know if Affinity photo has a method of checking color? If a leaf is green I would like ensure the photo shows a green leaf. I hope you understand what I am asking. Thanks,
  17. I created about 100 icons - many have several vector layers including objects with outlines and fill. I want to be able to create multiple color combinations. For example, let's say I have 200 layers with combinations of blue and grey. I want to change the blue to red, or the grey to black. Is there a way to change the color of all layers in one shot? I flattened the layers and used the replace color with selection. That seemed to work, but since the layers were converted, when I changed the color the edges were not smooth. Any thoughts?
  18. Can any one please let me know once I have finish tracing my image in Affinity Designer, can I apply pre defined color combinations from the color panel for my image like in Ai? Please refer attached example of the same in Ai
  19. I have no idea what the affinity programs do in the background ... 😞 I have a christmas cap as .EPS. Colored. Open in AD - all in grayscale... (?) Affinity Feature? I tried to convert the file or profile... nothing. Open in Gravit-Designer - looks like it should look like. Preview in Finder - correct. And the help pages in Affinity with the 7pct font are too tiring to read. Close and open the software - no effect But I have found nothing either Any ideas...?
  20. Hi guys, I'm currently having strange color shifts when exporting from Affinity Publisher into PDF. The color of the imported RGB .jpg image is strongly shifted close to grayscale when the document is being exported, even if the used gradiation curve layer (for matching the target color space) is only slightly affecting the overall colors of the image. When exporting the pages as .jpg with CMYK format this color shift is not visible. For better understand of the effect, I attached three images: 1st image: screenshot of page within Affinity Publisher without softproof 2nd image: screenshot of page within Affinity Publisher with softproof 3rd image: screenshot of the exported pdf opened in Acrobat Reader DC (but I get the same behavior also in other PDF readers and even when reopening the pdf in Publisher) I'm exporting into ISO coated v2 300% (ECI) color space. In publisher I'm using the corresponding preflight for softproof and disabling the softproof layer before export. The behavior seems not to be dependent on the selected PDF compatibly version (I'm using PDF/X-3:2003). I'm using Publisher 1.8.4 under Catalina 10.15.7. Many thanks for your help!
  21. I took a color from a picture and used it for text on that page. Now I need to find that color and use it elsewhere. When I select the colored text, I cannot tell what color swatch is assigned to it. Does it show up somewhere? Thank you.
  22. Don't know if any one has run into this, but when going back and forth between two canvases I would use the colour picker tool, grab a colour to use, but upon going to my second canvas to use said colour the swatches swaps out to a different colour. Is there a way to stop this from happening so that I can keep the selected colours and swatches as I use them across the different canvases?
  23. Hey everyone! The background color is bright even though the normal UI is set to dark. This isn't great to work with. I am using iPad mini 5, iOS 13.4.1, Designer 1.7.1. Best wishes, Shu
  24. I have a X-Rite ColorMunki Display to calibrate my screens. It even has support for iPad/iPhone, so I calibrated my iPad Pro 12.9" Mk.I with it and my iPhone 7 too. I can use an app called ColorTRUE to view my photos in real color on my iPad/iPhone. X-Rite says that other apps can be made to use the ColorTRUE profiles, so they will show true colors. As a photographer on the go, I often don't bring my heavy laptop with me with the calibrated screen and I rely on my iPad Pro 12.9" Mk.1 (which by the way has a terrible calibrated screen out of the factory). I edit a photo in Affinity Photo for iPad, export it and then check the real colors in the ColorTRUE app. Then go back to Affinity Photo and adjust colors, white balance, etc. if I need to. This is very cumbersome. If Affinity Photo for iPad could use the ColorTRUE Profile of my iPad, this cumbersome work around would not exist and I could use my iPad for more color critical photo work more easily. Are there plans for Affinity Photo for iPad to use ColorTRUE profiles? If not, are you willing to think about it? This would really make Affinity Photo for iPad justify the Pro in iPad Pro IMHO!
  25. Hi, I've been trying to use the XRITE Color Checker Passport and I'd like to ask for help. I'm not sure if I'm doing this correctly. I saw in another message in this forum the steps to generate the ICC file. So, to verify if the ICC was correct, in my understanding, I can use it in the original picture and I would expect NO changes in the color or anything. It actually squeezed the colors towards the black and the image became darker. The original image, only with WB corrected is the Pic 1 Then, after the ICC was succesfully generated and loaded in Affinity from that image, when I apply the profile, see the Histogram: Pic 2 If I develop the picture, it will be darker. BUT... if I load the image, after the WB correction, and develop the picture, from Document -> Assign ICC profile, the picture is corrected, but the contrast decreases and it looks washed (picture Pic 3). So, is it a bug with Affinity? How could I verify the colors are truly corrected? Can I use the RGB values in Info panel to double check the color palete values? The ICC profile I generated I called it TODELETE. Thanks! Sergio PIC 1: PIC 2: PIC 3:
