  1. Hi, When I go to print a photo on my HP Envy printer, the colours are far too dark / saturated. If I print from the windows photo app the colours are about right. I'm using Kodak glossy photo paper - pretty standard stuff I assume(?) - though right now I'm also trying plain paper to debug until I'm somewhere in the right ball park. What would be the recommended printer profile for a home printer with photo or plain papers? Lots of options but most seem to be aimed at professional printers rather than than home inkjet etc. Probably starting the obvious but I assume the sof
  2. Hey ho! My handsome cat shown in a new light - what do you think? Photo taken with my good old Nikon D90. Enjoy it 😃 Chris
  3. Win 7, Aff Photo, v 1.8.3.641, LG W2442PA I used to use the Light UI but have switched to the Dark UI. With the Light UI I could easily tell from the Context Toolbar which file I was working on when I had two files up with identical images. With the Dark UI it is nearly impossible for me to tell at a glance which file I have up. It makes no difference if the ambient light in my studio is high or low. Could you make the Context Toolbar of the file that's on the screen in the Dark mode a significantly lighter shade of grey? That would be a great help, even more so when I am mucking ar
  4. Changed background, added textures and lighting effect, dodging and burning locally, some cleaning. I was looking for some old dutch school feeling. Comments please! Mft
  5. I have just got a Sony alpha 6600 with the kit lens 18-135. When I open the raw files in Affinity, the pictures are extremely dark. If I increase the exposure, the highlights are completely blown out. If I open the file in other viewers, the exposure is fine. Since I am new to Affinity, maybe I missing a setting or something? I don't see the lens in the list of supported lenses. Is that the problem? I am attaching a file. DSC00221.ARW
  6. Images appear darker and with higher contrast in affinity compared to other applications (see uploaded image). The problem occurs with different file format (jpg, tiff, raw). When the file is exported with affinity and reopened in an other application the appearance is normal. Which means the high contrast and darkness is not saved in the image. The problem started with the upgrade to version 1.7.3. What I've tried so far: - Change color profile (Appearance changes but the high contrast and darkness remains) - Downgrade to 1.7.1 (-) - Reset settings
  7. Windows 10 Home 1903, Publisher 1.7.2.471. Every now and again, seemingly randomly to me, Publisher hangs for a few seconds and then page background goes ‘dark’ or invisible. See attached image where you can see that the page background has ‘gone’, however, at the bottom of the image you can see where scrolling up a little has revealed part of the white page background. It happened this time while I was trying to drag a text frame but I’ve seen it when modifying tables and quite a few other times. I have never seen this happen with previous versions of Publisher, even the betas. I h
  8. Hi, I'm new on this forum. Who can help me. My problem is that when I open a raw file (CR2) the develop persona shows a very dark image. This happens since a week and I'm rather sure that I didn't change any settings. Browsing through the topics on this forum I found different solutions but non of these work fine for me. I've tried to alter the 32-bits preview settings from "Unmanaged" to "ICC Display Transform". That wordked but ...only once. Is it a bug or am I doing something wrong? I appreciate your help.
  9. I need help! Everytime I do a batch job from RAW to JPG, Affinity saves all the new JPG's much darker than before! Can anyone help me to avoid that? Greetings
  10. When the Designer for iPad was released back in July, I read the post on Affinity Spotlight showing the works of artists who had used the beta version (https://affinityspotlight.com/article/affinity-designer-for-ipad-a-special-beta/), and I was immediately captivated by the work by Ilya Shapko titled "Mystic Beast": I am trying to produce these same effects in my own works, and not sure I nailed it yet. I did find and download the color palette for this work from Dribbble: (https://dribbble.com/shots/4821906-Mystic-Beast), but it appears that he used some effects that I am as yet un
  11. First, I apologize that I have different aspects of this problem in different topics. Summary of Problem: On my MacBook Pro 17", to which a Thunderbolt Display is connected, I have developed a RAW file in AP Develop and specified the ROMM RGB for output. In the Photo persona I changed the Document | Colour Format to RGB (16 bit), setup my adjustment layers and live filter layer, then export the document as a JPG, 100% quality, using the ROMM RGB profile, which should be embedded. When I compare the exported file and the document in AP, both at full
  12. Is it possible to toggle the contrast of the transparent checkered background? Currently I place a dark rectangle object behind the white icons. I expected a document setup property to set this background light or dark. This property should stored in the project file. Also a button in the toolbar to toggle it fast would be nice.
  13. Dark artboards seems to have unexpected white borders. Please see attached files. Affinity Designer v1.6.1. dark-ab.afdesign
  14. This bug has been posted before on both mac and windows. Most postings hsve been from users starting from raw files. I have recently processed a batch of .awr (Sony raw) files and using a macro to resize them. All came out too dark. I then simplified things and processed a batch of .jpg files, simply saving/exporting them (via batch) into a subfolder. All came out too dark. This suggests that the problem is inherent in the batch processing rather than raw processing. It would seem that other users use batch processing with no problems. The video explaining bach jobs for example. Ther
  15. Apologies if this has been reported before but I’ve been evaluating the trial version of Affinity Photo for Windows (v1.6.0.89) for a few days now and so far, I have encountered three times what seem to be a bug where the image I’m working on suddenly turns dark gray. The UI is normal, only the image is affected. First instance is with a NEF file from a Nikon D500. The Image opened correctly (Colored) and was able to edit in Develop Persona. While working in basic tab, the photo suddenly turned dark gray. At first, I thought I may have done something wrong while editing. Moving the
  16. In your Light UI video you demonstrate how to adjust the UI appearance. Under windows it does not seem to work correctly. Under windows I can switch between light and dark UI style and the UI gamma slider seems to work. The background and artboard background grey level sliders do not show any effects under windows. The tool icons are not adjusted according style. With light UI I see the same icons with black background as used with the dark UI style. E.g., the cutting tool is just a dark square with light UI style. The front UI size adjustment (default / large) is miss
  17. Hey everyone! This happens in both Photo and Designer. Full screen mode needs to be used for this issue to show up. I get a dark border on top of the document view when doing the following: - Opening at least two documents so that tabs show up - Closing those documents - There should be a dark border where the tabs have been Creating a new document and closing it does not get rid of this issue. However, opening just one file and closing it does. So does quitting and restarting the application. Software used: Mac
  18. I have found that when I create a set of .jpg files using New Batch Job, the resulting files are unusably dark. This only seems to occur if my .afphoto files were created using New HDR Merge (I have not tested Stack or Focus). I got the same (dark) result when I unchecked the Tone Map box. These same .afphoto files will process just fine one at a time using File -> Export. I can also do a New Batch Job export with no problem on sets of .afphotos created from single RAW format files. The export settings (New Batch Job and File -> Export) are the same as near as I can tell
  19. Font edge smoothing seems to be totally absent when using, prefs > Artboard Background Grey Level - set to low. This becomes a visual annoyance in a workflow with multiple artboards in a complex layout. It appears as if there is no anti-aliasing therefore font is poorly rendered (pixelated) - making indistinct and hard to read artboard titles. Chalk & cheese

  21. Hi Anyone gets this? I've been experiencing a black out on my artwork sometimes lately. Please se attachment. The way to solve it is closing and reopening the file. Maybe somehow related to the fat I'm using a two monitors? (one a macbook pro the other a cintiq screen, if this helps). Thanks.
  22. As a photographer whose images are in museums, color judgement is critical to me. I have a 10-bit path showing 100% of ARGB. In order to do this accurately, one needs an environment that is LIGHT (such as the light grays of this very forum). I realize you're aesthetically fond of the dark environment, but any photographer worth his salt will tell you it screws up color and luminosity perception. If you doubt me, please see the attached image from: http://web.mit.edu/persci/people/adelson/checkershadow_illusion.html. Look at the light surrounds of the A square and the dark surrounds of
  23. I'm having a recent issue with my cloning brush tool, in that while I can set a source, the closer I bring the brush to a light source or brighter area, the darker it becomes when used, regardless of the selection. Conversely, the further I take my selection away from light/bright areas, the brighter it becomes. I'm kind of at a loss here .... thanks for input!
  24. I had the exact same problem during beta. Devs said they found the problem but it's still there even after update. DNG are dark when opening with Affinity Photo 1.3.5 https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/29346596/DNG%20pb.jpg original file : https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/29346596/DSC_0772.dng This is a critical problem. I cannot use AF Photo like that.
  25. When I exported the image from Affinity to my desktop it looked fine. (I was using the Mac software Preview to view it) however when I tried to send the image via iMessage, it became very dark. Is there a setting that can fix this problem?
