  1. I have some design to be done in white. How do I change colour of the artboard? I was looking for half an hour and can't find it. I know, I can add a coloured layer beneath everything, but I would prefer to do it without adding the extra layer.
  2. I'm evaluating Affinity Photo in a work flow that uses DxO PhotoLab to apply lens as well as basic colour & exposure corrections. When I export from DxO into Affinity, photos look significantly different. Is there something I'm overlooking? Can someone please suggest how I can carry forward all of the work done in DxO before I begin more detailed work in Affinity Photo? Thanks.
  3. It would be great to have a color wheel similar to this: I'd even be happy if we could have TWO color pallets viewable in the workspace, One being sliders and the other being a wheel. I would LOVE an option similar to something like this: These would give a great amount of control with color that would make color selection with painting a lot smoother. Changes: 1. Red being at the top (0 degrees) 2. Color schemes: Complimentary, Triadic, split complimentary, etc. 3. Tint - 100% tint is always represented as the color, where in painting if you've tinted your colors you're ADDING white, so the slider is reversed from the default. 4. Blending - foreground and background colors go on either end of the slider. 5. Color temperature (lock) & Tone (lock)- these are lifted from Anastasy's Magic Picker, they're really powerful features I hope this was somewhat intelligible and that others might find these requests useful for their process. Thank you very much for taking our requests seriously and listening to the community, you guys and gals rock!
  4. Hi, I'm new to this community but wanted to say I'm really enjoying Affinity Designer as an alternative Professional Vector Graphics Software. So much so, that I've started sharing my knowledge using Affinity via Skillshares platform. Looking forward to learning from others here in this community too. I created a Skillshare class called "From Screen to Print: A Simple Colour System" If you are preparing artwork for a commercial print house this class will help get your colours right between screens, print devices and paper stocks. I also show you other helpful tips including global colours in Affinity Designer. Here is the link: https://skl.sh/2Iutp0r You can use this link to sign up for two free months of Skillshare Premium and watch my classes for free. I hope you find it helpful.
  5. In Illustrator it's quick and easy to sample a colour and apply it to a new shape - using the colour picker you can select a colour, and then use alt+click to apply it. I haven't been able to replicate this functionality in Affinity Designer - though please let me know if I've missed something! If it doesn't exist, I'd love to see this functionality since it's a real time saver.
  6. Sort Swatches by Colour in the Swatches panel is good... But to be able to sort the swatches by Hue, Saturation or Lightness would be great and very useful. Is this possible? Please! :) :)

    Colour Picker Issue

    Can you tell me why the colour picker hover/zoom element is displaying the wrong colour. Yet the resulting colour swatch element is correct. Thanks
  8. 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.

    Hi please help, Designer is my everyday go-to tool, and recently I have been having issues with the colour import. Every time I import an image, it looks washed out. When I then save this image and export it also appears washed out. I have played around with the project colour properties, but some far nothing works. Please help, hate Photoshop, but will have to grin and bear it, if can't find a fix to this soon. Thanks in advance Marcus
  10. Here is a screen grab, the colour sliders says to me, adjust image in RAW upon opening image. However these colour levels when adjusted change the image to B/ W only i think ? Is their a place where i have not looked at, that is the same as this where by I click a button and can adjust colours on this page ? (While at RAW level, see top left of image.) I only ask as their is a B/W button you need to select, or if you touch the color sliders your change it to B/W which is what the button does in the first place. So maybe i have seen it all incorrectly, please advise. Hopefully my question is clear enough ? If not do ask please. Regards Rob
  11. Struggling to get a gradient to appear across multiple objects within a group. Have experimented with removing sub-groups and changing stroke settings etc.. no difference. See attachment, the items should be mostly red, but instead, they're showing as just the Yellow. Have tried multiple restarts and on multiple laptops with different installs, (but both 1.6.1) -B

    Another color palette: fiesta

    Just released a second color palette with support for Affinity's .afpalette format. It's a set of bright, happy colors to lighten up any illustration or design. Get it at creativemarket
  13. Hi, After the latest update of AD I can't find the noise slider to add texture in colour fills. Is that feature removed or moved somewhere? It was cool to add some texture to flat tones or gradients easily by sliding the noise slider. Any insight is appreciated. regards, Raman
  14. Hi guys I mainly work with 32bit rendered EXR files. When I'm comping rendered objects into backplates, I need to be able to have coloured masks. This is to ensure shadows that are in alpha (masked), creates the correct tone on the backplate. A coloured mask can for example produce a blueish shadow, where a grey scale mask will produce a grey shadow. Is there perhaps a setting I'm not seeing? Whenever I convert a layer to a mask, it goes greyscale!
  15. Application crash upon dragging colour and dropping on gradient stop; can repeat, however does not occur on *every* drag the colour and drop it on a gradient stop event. I *think* the specific issue is that in that area of my document there is a high density of other entities: guides, edge-of-artboard, other vector fills (solid) etc, and it may be that in moving to the given gradient stop, I'm passing over those other items enroute - if this is indeed the issue, there needs to be some better exception handling written if Designer cannot handle improper target entities having colours dragged to them!Tiles Using Artifakt_flag_v2.0.afdesign File is attached for reference.
  16. Hi I'm trying to figure out why original photos viewed on system and external photo viewers looks different than opened in Affinity? I was trying to change every possible RGB colour profile, uncheck "convert working space" option, and "renderin intent" - nothing helps. So - why? Attached image: Left - Fast Stone Image Viewer, right Affinity. (I agree, this picture on left is oversaturated, but it is still an original).
  17. I found a bug and a workaround regarding colour profiles. On the latest MacOS 10.13.2 and latest Affinity Photo 1.6.6 (from the App Store), with an external NEC EA244UHD monitor connected over DisplayPort to a 2015 MBP 15" with Intel graphics - here's how I recreated the bug: take a screenshot using shift-cmd-3 the screenshot for me was of a web browser page with an image created programmatically, where the colours are chosen precisely by me, for example a green is RGB (0, 200, 0). open the screenshot PNG with the preview (press space) or the Preview application (Open) - shows the correct shade of green. open the same screenshot PNG in Affinity Photo and the green shade is different - lighter and more yellow both Preview and AP shows the colour profile name as Display I searched the web incl. these forums showed no obvious solution, but some pointed to a bug in how AP selected a profile to apply based incorrectly on the ASCII name only, which can mean the wrong one is selected. Here's what I did to fix the problem. using Spectraview and an X-rite i1 Display pro hardware device calibrate the monitor, I generated a new ICC profile now both Preview and AP show the colours correctly when new screenshots are taken, as the PNG files now contain the new ICC profile I'm not an expert but I suspect the online suggestions that Affinity Photo was incorrectly choosing the profile to profile based on ASCII vs other/unicode/ID name makes sense. This experiment which creates a different profile name, which here is "EA244UHD 47100533TB 2017-12-13 00-25 D65 2.20". I haven't tested this problem using the MacBook display with no external display attached.
  18. Hi, since i have updated my Windows 10 and Affinity Photo/Designer Software, the colours in both Softwares are wrong, White (255,255,255) appears yellow in Affinity, but when I export it, it's pure White again. I really can not work with this issue, due to the fact that no colour Matches to my designs. I attached some pics from the colour settings and one Artboard, to help you understand my Problem. :-/ Thanks in advance Felix
  19. Pre Export: Post Export: You probably get the Problem I've checked all settings and still don't get where the problem could possibly be..
  20. Hello, Is it possible to make a gradient between severl spot colours in Affinity Designer (without rendering them to Process CMYK)? I just checked, it is possible in Illustrator CC. Thanks, M
  21. Hi, I am having trouble with opening RAW files. It seems to have happened after the programme crashed last night (I didn't bother to restart it as it was past my bedtime) For some reason today, when I try to open a raw file, I am getting a weird purple hue. It seems to be taking a lot longer to open them too. I know it's not the files as they are opening ok in both Cannon DPP4 and Faststone. I have been using Affinity Photo for months now and this is the first issue I have had with it. Attaching a quick set of screen shots so you can see what I mean.
  22. Hi I think it would be great to be able to add and delete separate noods or the little square boxes when you are drawing a logo for instance. When you click on the white arrow tool to be able to individually move the little boxes on the design you have created, it would be so handy to have a tool that you can create new boxes on the line so you can manipulate more sections or take it away. Also, the ability to be able to have the same colour for both the outline and fill, where you drag the colour into the other swatch box or something, just so its quicker and easier than having to save the colour as a swatch or take the pipet and put over the colour you already have. Hopefully, that makes sense. Unless there are already ways to do this that i haven't found yet? Thanks.
  23. We have all had the problem of selecting a sky when most of the sky can be seen through gaps in the leaves and branches of a tree. It can take ages to accurately select every tiny gap to complete the selection of the sky. If we miss a few tiny gaps the result looks awful. Other programs, GIMP is an example, have selection tools which can select all areas of the sky, including those pesky gaps, with just one click. Of course it may be necessary to adjust the settings for that tool to capture clouds as well as the blue sky. If other programs can do it how about such a tool for Affinity Photo? (If you are not familiar with GIMP I'm talking about the 'Select by Color Tool'.)

    Flatiful Color Palette

    I wanted a base palette that I could use on my illustrations, with a range of shades, and highlights/shadows for each. So I made my own: It's a good starting point for illustrations, icons & UI work. There's more than 100 swatches, nicely organized. Comes in several formats, of course .afpalette included. Grab it over at CreativeMarket!
  25. Hi, I was just surfing youtube yesterday and I came across a video by Sean Tucker: At 7:50, Sean uses hue saturation and lumance sliders to edit inividual colours in his image. I was wondering if you can do this in affinity photo. I am interested in buying it soon so any answer will help me in making my decision. Thanks, Jayvin.
