  1. Comparing my AD document (on the right) to the exported PSD (on the left)... is this amount of colour-shift normal?
  2. Hi - I've noticed that when I export from Affinity Designer the colours are quite different. Pure white becomes light yellow for example. I'm using a 2012 retina macbook pro that's running El Capitan. Is there a way to fix this? Thanks I've attached a couple of images for comparison PreExport.tiff
  3. When matching a colour selected from a colour swatch book, the odds are that I want simple, rounded off numbers like 50% cyan, rather than its lesser-spotted cousin, 52% cyan. Could you introduce some way to snap to increments of 5% when dragging a slider? Perhaps holding the shift key while dragging? (this is a personal issue I have with Illustrator… the sliders always seem to hop from 49% to 51% as if it's intentionally trying to avoid the common 50%. I seem to end up having to type 50% after a few frustrating attempts) I don't have this exact problem with AD or AP's sliders, but snapping would be a great option in my life.
  4. Taken a couple of years ago, here's a shot reworked in Affinity Photo. Any thoughts welcome.
  5. Colour lists get invisible when clicking on Stroke / Swatches. In all versions. :( Has anybody else this problem?
  6. I am getting a bizarre colour picker problem. It occurs in the main colour picker panel. It occurs in colour wheel, slider and box mode. I have attached a series of screen shots annotated to show the problem. Behaviour is as follows: 1) On opening a new document the palette looks as in Image 1 attached. 2) On selecting the brush tool the foreground and background colours spontaneously reverse. This isn't a problem - just a bit odd and disconcerting. Image 2 3) This is where the problem starts. On selecting a new colour the Opacity/Noise bar does not update. Image 3 4) This is a real problem when set to noise, as with a solid black bar, noise is not visible. The odd thing is that all the secondary colour pickers (text, fill, outline, edit fill) work exactly as they should with the Opacity/Noise live updating just as they should. They also have the effect of updating the main Colour Panel as it should be. The problem is confined only to the main panel's ability to update itself. 5) However once updated the Opacity/Noise slider in the main panel then stays stuck on the updated colour regardless of what new colour is selected. Image 5 This leads to two other colour questions related to this. The first is that no matter what noise level is selected in the colour palette it doesn't appear in the brush or in fills. Am I missing a newbie something obvious here or is this a problems as well? The second is not a problem it's a puzzle. Why is the Opacity/Noise slider missing entirely from the swatches panel? I use this palette a lot and it is very irritating to have to keep switching to another panel to access the slider. So there we are. Another mystery unfolds. I am devoting quite a lot of time to learning AFP at the moment and have encountered a couple of other oddities but I want to be sure that it is not my inexperience startling false hares before I start reporting things. This is a terrific app. I am so impressed by so much of it. David Mac Affinity Photo 1.2.1 26369 OS X 10.10.4 Mac Pro 8 core 28GB RAM NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2GB

    Drag colour to swatch

    Great program and I'm still exploring but it would be nice to be able to drag colours onto the swatch to add them rather than having to click to the colours tab, click the menu and choose add colour to swatch (could this not also be a added to the menu in the swatch tab?)
  8. Hello! The possibility to change the color space/format at export without needs to change documents setup. Every time I'm working for impression(CMYK) when I need to send a preview to my clients, I have to change the document setup to RGB and then export to jpg or png and then go back to document setup and re-set the color format to CMYK......... Regards!
  9. - Color libraries like Pantone would be welcome. - Support for Suitcase Fusion for type management. - Multiple Page layouts
  10. I always have the navigator tab visible so that when I'm zoomed in a lot, I can still have an idea of where I am. The only problem that I have is, sometimes the colour of the navigator indicator (the floating box that follows your movement and shows where you are) blends in with the picture I'm working on and I can't always tell where I am. Is there anyway that you can make it so that Designer detects the dominate colour of picture and then chooses another colour for the indicator that is easier to see (possibly an opposite colour)? For example, now I'm working on a picture that is predominately blue, but the navigator indicator is blue or kind of greenish and it is hard to see. If this isn't possible, then how about the ability to change the colour of the indicator square? Just a thought. Does this happen to anyone else?
  11. Hi, When I export a picture, the colour is changed. This happens whatever the export file format. How can I please preserve my colour choice? Thanks

    Colourful singing lady

    I love to keep my drawing very simple but use colours as a way to communicate. Firstly I always used coloured pencils to start of with.
  13. Hi Everyone, I am not entirely sure if this has anything to do with my colour settings but each time I try dragging or pasting images into designer, the colour changes. Sometimes becomes faded like luminosity was applied. Sometimes colour just appear off/diff. Secondly, filling with colour white (C:0 M:0 Y:0 K:0) the page or filled objects looks like it has 8% Gray. I'll be glad to get help on this. Thanks Everyone.
  14. Hello I was just wondering if there is a way for me to set spot colors on my swatches panel?
  15. Hi there, on mouseover the cmyk colour readouts in the swatches palette are displayed at a range of 0 to 255 instead of 0 to 100. Sometimes the readouts don’t show up at all unless you rename the swatches. I think a readable list view of swatches would be a nice improvement. But hey – kudos for bringing the good old “Paste Inside”-command back into business ;-) Keep up the good work! Dirk
  16. Not sure if I've included this before? When you click on a fill in the swatch panel. Right click > Rename-fill/Delete-fill 100% guaranteed to crash the app every time.
  17. Just another colour request. More often than not I want to use the same colour for strokes and fills. This means 2 trips to the palette. Currently the default is to open the 'colour' window - the swatches window would be more useful for the majority of users as we'll already have a defined palette in place. This would cut out yet another mouse click. Here's how Freehand did it (and other apps do similar). The 3 small squares at the top of the palette refer to "Fill", "Stroke" and Stroke + Fill". For fill only - highlight "Fill"(as shown - left option) and select the colour. Stroke (centre option) works the same. "Fill + Stroke" (right option) selects both fill and stroke. The swatch palette remains in view at all times. It does away with 2 separate pop-up windows, cuts down number of mouse clicks - saves lots of time on detailed work. Also Freehand let you "show" and "hide" names of colours - really nice feature.
  18. Not sure if this is a bug or a question yet? I'm working in the "smart" pen tool. I've selected the Stroke + Fill option before I start to draw - I want all objects the same. For example: All fills set to 50% black All strokes 1.5pt All strokes red When I click my first point on the page - the colours still remain at those settings. When I add the 2nd point - the Fill/Sroke options go blank - meaning a trip to the palette each time. Bug or simple solution? S
  19. Good Morning, I'm just finishing my first piece of artwork produced with Affinity, and really enjoyed the process so far. However I would like to experiment with some different colours schemes, Is there a way to select and edit colours rather than replacing individually? or can I set up colour pallets with global settings?
  20. It would be great if users had the ability to select PANTONE colours from the Colour Chooser dialog or from the Swatches tab.
