I would love to see Affinity products supporting HKS colour systems for printing on coated and uncoated papers, same way as Pantone colours are built-in into applications. The systems are used by many printers, naming just few in UK: Saxo Print, Mixam, FlyerAlarm and many others around Europe. I use HKS at work, but must translate colours into CMYK. It would be really helpful to support these colour schemes (HKS-K, HKS-N). HKS has an app that allows to add HKS-K (coated) and HKS-N (uncoated) to Adobe applications automatically. If not built-in schemes, than maybe this would be a good approach? HKS is also cheaper than Pantone for designers (colour fans and colour tables) and for printers. HKS also include gold and silver inks.
Hello my Friends, I hope that HKS will be included in future in Affinity software alongside Pantone. For time being, I've prepared CMYK versions of HKS colour systems for coated (K) and uncoated (N) papers (download attached *.afpalette files). HKS 98 & HKS 99 are gold and silver (same in both). Why? Lots of printers in Europe are using HKS, i.e. Saxoprint and others. :*) HKS N.afpalette HKS K.afpalette Post Scriptum Official Website: https://www.hks-farben.de On Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HKS_(colour_system)
Hi all, I've been looking into Affinity Designer (and the FAQs etc.) for only 2 days, so the question may seem very simple. Is there a way of using HKS spot colours in Designer 1.4? I managed to import them as .ASE files from Illustrator and they show up in the colour swatches panel. The only thing is they are not spot colours any more but CMYK separated, and I can't find a convenient way of undoing this. (Yes, I did export the spot colour versions from AI, not the process colour ones ;-)). Thanks a lot Thomas
Hey Folks, I looked at the roadmap and saw "Pantone, Spot and Registration colours" as planned. But is there actually any option or workaround for defining/using spot colors (prefered own mixed CMYK spots or HKS)?! Thanks :)
