  1. Hi all This has been the week of figuring out how to get my colours sorted in Affinity Photo. There is no direct support for the ColorChecker Passport from X-Rite in Affinity Photo unfortunately but I did figure out how to do it with some help. If you use X-Right ColorChecker Passport these are the steps on how to do it. This might be painfully obvious to some people but for me it was all entirely new and took a while to get my head around so I hope that this is some use to people. 1. When you are shooting your photos in a location take a photo of the ColorChecker Passports colour cards and the white card. Make sure they are in the same place as your subject matter and are properly exposed. 2. Import all the photos from your session along with your pictures of the ColorChecker. 3. Open your photos of the ColorChecker in Affinity Photo crop them down if you like and export them as 16 bit Tiff files. 8 bit might work but I have been going with 16 4. Open ColorChecker Tiff photos with the new beta version of ColorChecker Passport Camera Calibration software in the ICC tab. 5. Export your ICC profiles naming them something so you know what photo shoot they go along with. 6. Close down Affinity Photo and then re-open it to refresh the ICC database 7. Open your photos from the associated photo shoot and go to the Document tab and select Assign ICC Profile and select the ICC file you just created. And if all goes well your colour is mostly corrected. 8. Now to set the white balances correctly. Go to White Balance in the Adjustment section. Click the Picker button and then click on the photo that you took during the photo shoot of your white card. This will then automatically make the adjustment. I hope that helps some folks. I did not understand any of this stuff three days ago and it was no fun trying to get my head around it for the first time. If anyone has tips on how to improve upon this workflow please share. I am by no means an expert on this subject. All the best!
  2. Good Morning, I just starting doing some sublimation printing at home and was looking to see if anyone had success with matching up color profiles to get good prints from the Epson 7720 with Asub paper 120g ? If so could you share your setups inside affinity designer (MAC USER)
  3. Hi everyone, I am new to Affinity Photo and photo editing in general and I have a crucial problem. The preview of my edits that AP shows does not fit the exported files. Just for reference my screen is colour calibrated using a SpyderX and is able to achieve 100% sRGB. Looking in Windows -> Settings -> System -> Display -> Advanced Display Settings -> Bit depth I see the value 8 bit. Now when I look at the edited photo in AP (before exporting) I can clearly see shades of gray on the top left lamp, but when I look at it through DigiKam's ShowPhoto (which I read it is colour managed) I am losing all the gray detail in the top left lamp. I have exported to PNG 16bit (as I was working in sRGB 16 bit in AP) with the attached settings. The even weirder problem is that if I open the exported PNG in AP I see the exact same image as the preview. As far I know, the only profile that should be anything but sRGB/Adobe RGB/ProPhoto is the display one (which is found under Windows -> Settings -> System -> Display -> Advanced Display Settings -> Display Adapter Properties -> Colour Management -> Colour Management) that should be generated by a colour calibration tool such as SpyderX/i1Display/etc. Please let me know what do I get wrong as it drives me nuts that the export does not match the edit! Thank you for your time and stay safe! DSCF2205.afphoto
  4. I think I've had this issue for a while now... Objects with Multiply and edge softening (like Gaussian blur) get this annoying "halo" when exported to PDF using any CoatedFOGRA icc. This used to work. But somewhere on the way with the updates this started to appear. If exported with Generic CMYK profile all blends in nicely (see attachment). But Fogra just spoils everything. If I change the blending mode to normal, all is well. But any other Blending mode just breaks it.
  5. I have what I hope can be a yes / no answer type question. I've created an ICC profile (sRGB) after monitor calibration, great. I want to send photos to an external printing house (as a photo book) which uses a CMYK (FOGRA39) profile. Can I simply export the photos using the ICC CMYK profile they use or is there more to it? Is soft proofing necessary? (I'm not really sure what it is but have seen some tutorials on it). What about document -> assign an ICC profile? I'm using AF v1.8.0.486 Beta. thanks so much Julie.
  6. Would be nice to be able to export luts or total image adjustments as an ICC profile, this is something Photoshop has been able to do for ages.
  7. In a professional workflow, like in the printing industries, is quite fundamental the correct use of PDF/X specification. All the Affinity Suite has problems correctly visualise and, probably create, the PDF/X standard as the GHENT Groupe as prepared. If you download the Ghent Suite you see the problem: https://www.gwg.org/workflow-tools/test-suites/ghent-output-suite/
  8. In a professional printing work flow is necessary to create ICC profile for particular printing condition (offset-flexo-gravure). To do so it is necessary to open/measure/print/save a chart (either is a image or vector file) file disabling any kind of ICC profile by the application. In all of the Affinity suite this is not possible to do, it is a necessary opportunity. I suggest to follow the old Adobe (previous the CC era) possibilities.
  9. In Affinity starting with an RGB value of (100,100,100) translates to a CMYK value of (60,52,52,21). -> Why so much cyan ? -> Why is it different than this ? (here or here) -> If I plug the CMYK (60,52,52,21) in reverse here I get rgb(80,95,95) with a cyan tint, but affinity says rgb (102,100,100). Why ? In the attached file the color format is set to CMYK with profile (US Web coated SWOP v2). -> Exporting the file to PNG gives me correct result (exactly as shown on screen) -> Exporting to JPEG with color profile included gives me a cyan tint. Why ? (it doesn't include the profile after all ?) ColorTest.afdesign
  10. Hello, i have download a ICC Softproof File form the website https://www.saal-digital.de and install them unter Settings - Color. Now I create a new adujstment mask an select then "Softproof", but the Menu is empty. How could I use the installed Profile in the Softproof area ?
  11. Hello Everyone. I have down loaded from the Permajet print paper manufacturer web site a whole bunch of ICC profiles for printing. Problem: All of the downloaded profiles have the suffix .icm - but Affinity Photo searches for profiles with a .icc suffix. So. Are the icm profiles compatible with Affinity and how do I change the search to include icm profiles? All help and advice gratefully received. Thank you.
  12. Hello I just bought the new iPad with magic Keyboard and pen V2. I Am a very experienced photoshop user and want to work from my iPad as much as possible now that’s no longer a toy. I want to import and use specific ICC profile dedicated for CMYK printing and the most common calibration standard (G7 or Gracol 7) it is available in photoshop as a default installed profile Hopefully there is a way to do this. My next question and hope is to be able to have keyboard shortcuts for swapping tool functions like the Freehand Selection Tool, going from add to subtract from selection. In photoshop you can hold the option key to go from add to subtract. If no keyboard maybe a button on screen to do the same? I have another issue I cam across and that was gradients do not display correctly going from white to 100S% black showing a bunch of bad breaks, please sample images attached I used for testing.
  13. Hi, I've calibrated my scanner using the X-Rite i1 Studio and that resulted in a ICC profile. The profile is saved in the same place as my printer and display profiles (C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\color) but when I choose Document->Assign ICC profile in Affinity Photo 1.6.5.123 my printer and display profiles are there but not my scanner profile. When I do the same in Photoshop CC 2018 I get a very long list of profiles including my scanner profile, why? Best regards Nicke
  14. Hi, I just start with Affinity photo and was mainly only using Lightroom previously while I plan to quit it to Capture one+Affinity with the aim to mainly finalise my work on printings much more than online gallery. That's where I get some fever since I really don't master the printing process and until now mainly used experimentations until reaching an honnest result but I really want from now on to do it more "professionnaly" and mastering the things more than letting it to destiny and luck dispite it always keep a part of mystery that I appreciate and open new persepectives. A good mistake is always a source of inspiration... Where I feel the need to share those existential stuffs is the tip and tricks I were using on lightroom doesn't work anymore with affinity and as some people know here, Studio pro doens't get along well with Affinity. I'm searching a solution either include in Affinity or a dedicated software to print and give me all power on function of the printer and color managment while neutralising all parameters include in the driver set up box. I don't understand why after spending that much of time adujsting and tuning a picture, printers managment is that much chaotic in amateur world whith possibility to set the same ICC profile in different places and creating mess while you choosed in both places the same profil or choosing mat or bright function in driver window instead to have one window that controls all at once. It drive me crazy and lost to spend that much of time when you already sweat quite a lot on your editing and post processing. Please, HELP!!! Sorry for this approximative english
  15. Quite everything is in the title, but to be more contextual, I'm working with 32bits linear .exr (3D renders). To have a proper non destructive workflow I use OCIO layers to convert from linear space to color profil spaces, then I use creative LUT (or do manual adjustments). Exemple: OCIO layer to convert from scene linear to Slog, then a creative Log LUT to have my look, and export to final 8bits format. The problem is at the end of the process, when exporting an image there is an ICC profile apply on top of my stack, so it add an aditionnal transfer curve wich altered my work. I don't talk about how to view my work how it's exported, I know that, but I want my work not to be altered with additionnal transform. I know a cheap way of doing what I want but it's not satisfying. So, is there a way of disabling ICC profile during the export? Or is it planned to add the option in a future release?
  16. Red River Paper offers different Photoshop ICC Profiles for their many types of papers. I asked them if they have these for Affinity and they didn't know if Affinity used them. Does Affinity have an answer to this? I saw one comment in the forum that an Affinity user printed on different papers and sent them to his supplier and they created specific ICC Profiles to use with Affinity for their paper. Dear Wonderful Serif/Affinity - If I need ICC Profiles, what do you recommend?
  17. Hi, I've got some problems using the soft proof adjustment layer in Affinity Photo. I am so far unable to replicate the behaviour of Adobe Lightroom (which worked pretty well). I've attached two images here showing the difference in results (left side LR, right side AP). Gammut check is totally off in AP and the shadows are way to bright in the preview. I'm using a color profile provided by the photo lab for their exposure unit and they specify exactly what settings to make for which of their products. In this specific case: Retain CMYK-numbers: n/a Retain RGB-numbers: off Rendering priority: relative colourimetric Black point/shadow compensation: on Emulate paper color: off The shadows in the LR preview also get (somewhat) brighter if I turn paper color emulation on, however that is wrong and I seem to be unable to turn it off in AP...? I hope I'm just missing some settings hidden in another dialog? It seems to me that AP sadly isn't usable for soft proofing in all cases...? I would be grateful to get rid of LR, so any help is appreciated! Thanks, Henning
  18. Any chance of incorporating the option to manage printing with icc profiles totally within the iPad app? E.g. when i use the print dialogue i am given the choice of printing as is and letting my printer do all color management or applying an icc color profile to my output and let the app control the colour output? Cheers in anticipation
  19. I am struggling to manage colour in my workflow from AD to a commercial printer. The commercial print service wants pdf/x-3 2002; I am hoping they can live with 2003 (since that is all that AD offers). More significantly, the AD export panel for pdf/x-3 is not providing me with the opportunity to set the ICC profile or rendering intent. In particular, the AD export panel for pdf/x-3 does not include sRGB or Adobe1998; it includes only the profiles for my own printer (and these are not useful). Furthermore, the ICC option starts off blank, but if I choose any of the profiles then I can't get it back to blank -- and, I have no idea what it means for export when it is blank. Whereas, the later pdf export options (e.g. 1.7) do provide many ICC profile options. None of these provides the ability to set rendering intent. By the way, I can see the difference between colour in pdf/x-3 vs pdf 1.7 (exporting x-3 with the ICC field in its initial blank state, and exporting 1.7 with sRBG) by viewing them in ColorSync Utility. The x-3 export is dull and dark, whereas 1.7 looks as it should. Thanks for any workarounds or advice. Martin Brooks
  20. Update 1.6.1.93 fixes the previous inability to apply a supplied or custom-calibrated .icc paper profile to a print job. (Previously, the printer dialog would spontaneously revert to the image colour profile, eg. ProPhoto. This deficiency was my last tether to Photoshop, so I can now slot Affinity Photo into my colour-managed workflow. Thank you to the development team. You should really highlight this fix in the release notes. It was a show-stopper for photographers who actually print their work. I happily discovered the fix by testing the new releases.
  21. Hello everyone! Could, anyone outhere, explain to me how can I do my print test with the appropiate ICC used in diferents papers... And also, dou you remember which was the built-in-house CMYKB valor in Affinity Photo? I changed it and I absolutely forgot which one it was... Thanks in advance. Best regards!
  22. Affinity seems to be assuming that my Canon RAW (EOS M) files have a colour space of sRGB, despite the fact that they are really in Adobe RGB. The reason I say this is that if I enable colour space conversion warnings, and set my working space to Adobe RGB, it does warn me that it is converting from sRGB to Adobe RGB. Does affinity support colour spaces other than sRGB in RAW files? If not, is there a way I can assign the correct space manually in the Develop persona? (I can't seem to find a way to do this)
  23. I just found out that I made a serious error by purchasing AP. It does not support color management! When converting or assigning to a different profile one has to be able to preview what happens and also one has to be able to choose the rendering intent (the usual 4 intents + Blackpoint compensation BPC). This is not offered at the moment when doing a conversion. It is possible to chose the intent in the default options, but this is not enough. This only makes sense for "standard conversions", but often one has to decide on an individual basis if which rendering intent is best for a given photo. I must say I am very disappointed now. Of course I tried the demo and checked different features. Everything was fine. I also have seen that ICC conversion is offerered, so I did not try that out. I know how that works. It never came to my mind that an ICC conversion could be offered without a preview and without an individual choice for the rendering intent. No real professional will be able to use AP alone for that reason. Of course I know there are thousands of "half-professionals" who do not care or know enough about color management. But the ones preparing photos for high-quality, predictable output, be it on screen or in print, will not be able to use AP in a meaningful way on it's own. See also a post like this, which says the same: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/17884-icc-profile-conversion/ This feature must be included as soon as possible in the 1.x version IMO. AP is announced and discussed as a Photoshop alternative. This is totally not the case when this simple, but basic and important feature is missing. BTW, it should be clear somewhere how to the default color rendering to the screen is done. In some programs you can choose that on your own. In Photoshop the default rendering is fixed to: relative + BPC.
  24. Hi all I'd like to print some pictures with Saal Digital and i downloaded the ICC profile and think my monitor is well calibrated. Now i would like to edit the picture using the icc in order to simulate the final result. Which way do i take to embed the ICC profile? Convert ICC or Assign ICC (Document menu)? Also, there is possible in Photoshop to change the Rendering Intent, see http://www.saal-digital.co.uk/service/icc-profile-test-print/ Is possible to change in Affinity Photo the Rendering Intent or this is an exclusive Photoshop setting? On the web is explained for PS http://www.saal-digital.co.uk/support/article/how-to-embed-icc-profiles-in-photoshop/#sb Thanks SaalDigital_SoftProof_Fuji.zip
