  1. It would be very useful to have functions to select the same: Color fill stroke (color / width) Appearance To quickly select all your outlines, or background element in 1 color. Speed is everything. :)
  2. Affinity Photo for Desktop feature request: 1. Add a selection wand to select areas of related color when creating a mask, with +/- and antialias options. I use Corel Draw's "magic wand" to do this. I'd love to have this feature in APhoto.
  3. When I replied to this, I thought a bit more about the way color swatches work atm. I just don't think there is a need for a color swatch that is not "connected" to the objects that are using it. If I change a color swatch, I want to change all the objects that use it. InDesign does it this way, and it makes sense. I know that Illustrator does have "unconnected" swatches as well as "global" swatches -- but I never understood the reason for that. If there's a use case for "non-connected" swatches, please let me know I believe any such use should still be possible with "connected" swatches only. So all the swatches should behave as if they were a "global swatch". Or do "global swatches" have additional features that I haven't found out yet?
  4. Hello, I just started using some smoke brushes from the Affinity store. The brushes are black. How do I change the color of the brush, so that I can change it into white? Thanks
  5. I made a document with black Typo in CMYK. Defined color like: 0/0/0100 and exportes as PDF X4. Opened for Preflight in Acrobat and black is shown: 86/85/79/100. What can i do that the color i define ist the same in the PDF? I tried all Options and there is always the same mistake
  6. Hello all I evaluate AP 1.7 as a replacement for Lightroom but run in some very basic problems with raw file development. 1. When I develop one single raw file (DNG from Lightroom) AP writes a huge file (121MB versus 19MB original). This is no good. Is there a way to save the adjustments done in a fair way without using the alternative formats like tif, jpg etc. ? 2. I want to develop several raw files (DNG from Lightroom) at once with a batch process and saving them in jpg or tif for further processing. However, I do not manage to apply the individually made macro in Photo Persona to process the RAW files in Photo Develop, although I can select the macro. Possibly the macros are not compatible? How can I process several raw files the same way? 3. Is it still not possible in AP to save adjustments made in single raw files in an undestructive way? Thank you for your helpful answers. Best regards,
  7. Hello guys, I'm on the latest 1.7 version in Affinity Designer. I noticed that when i select a color by dragging inside the color picker box i end up getting 3 different CMYK values as shown in the screenshot below. I think this is a bug, unless i'm missing something. Can someone explain what's happening? Thank you. Edit: When i minimize the Program window and then maximize it, it shows the correct color in the large picker box, but it doesn't refresh in the color tab on the right until i select another object.
  8. Hi there, as I'm likely keen on collecting fonts, I somewhat regularly look for awesome ones and stumbled over Color Fonts (https://www.colorfonts.wtf/) On the page, there is Affinity Designer listed as supporting svg-Color Fonts - which must be svg packed within otf, if I understood that right -, but anywhere else including this forums, I only found the whole Affinity Suite does not support this yet, but also found some users, that would appreciate having it supported. So am I, and as I didn't find a posting about, I opened this one - excuse me if this wasn't right. I'm using Photo and Publisher at the moment, but would also buy Designer, just to get Color Font-Support I don't really make a lot of publications, but everytime I do, having color fonts supported would be fantastic. Thanks, and so long, sistra
  9. Values in the color panel show as white (all other colors appear correctly), but not to my eyes. So I checked using another program and confirmed white in Designer is not. Just checked Photo and it has the same 'not white' issue. So I checked, of all things, Paint (Windows 10), and white appears correctly. I must have changed something for this to occur and obviously can't remember how to make it right; I need white, can someone help?
  10. Hi, this is an old problem still present : - image developed in Affinity Photo beta 243 and passed to Persona Photo, - Color Efex call by the filter menu, - the image appears desaturated in the Color Efex window without filter actived.
  11. Perhaps this is a user error, and not a bug, but it's driving me bonkers. Help! I have a 20-page publication for a client I handle every other month, and each month they like having a new color theme. I have always handled this by creating a global spot color, and then editing that color each month so that all colors change across the document. One edit, and everything updates! This seems to work fine with everything aside from Drop Cap styles. I want the Drop Cap to refer to the theme color. I have a special Drop Cap Character style that is linked (supposedly) to the global spot color. This Drop Cap Character style is referred to in a Paragraph Style, which I apply to the first paragraph of each article, with a Next Style of the regular non-Drop Cap text. EACH MONTH I go through the agony of having to open and edit the Drop Cap color. Otherwise, for whatever reason, when I apply the Paragraph Style, it pulls the OLD spot color from the previous issue, instead of the updated Spot Color. In fact, I have to open the Character Style, select another swatch, CLOSE the style, then OPEN IT AGAIN, and select the global spot color and close the style again for it to update correctly. Nothing else seems to work. I have paragraph rules that also refer to this spot color and update just fine. I have various graphic elements at various tints that refer to this spot color and update just fine. I even have tables that refer to this spot color and update just fine. It only seems to be Drop Cap that is affected. Please let me know if I'm doing something wrong, or if this is a bug. Thanks! (I am running the Publisher Beta 1.7.0.257, though this has been an issue for months and I simply haven't bothered to report it. I'm an a 2017 MacBook Pro running OS 10.14.3.)
  12. I love Publisher but IMHO it has the worst colour system I have ever seen (in over 30 years). How did LAB, RGB and CMYK end up on the same palette when I only work in CMYK and the publication was set for CMYK? I NEVER work in LAB. I have 68 colours like this: "Rick 13-EN_No Photo 2 is the name of the publication. Useless as colour information for an in-document palette. It should be simple to create my own custom CMYK palette but instead it's horribly complicated, if not impossible. It's a monumental time waster. Why can I change a colour in this dialogue but not in that one. And then I can only change it in THAT dialogue, but not this one. A lot of things seem too clever by half in Publisher but colour handling is a serious fault in an otherwise pretty good app.
  13. Blend ranges are both easy and powerful. I would like to see a way to make the blend ranges a function of color (or hue). I have attached two different mockups. Option 1—the one with the curve like how blend ranges work now—would probably need (1) an option to pin the leftmost and rightmost points together to easily enforce periodicity of the curve, and (2) a way to shift what color is in the center. I used "color" in my mockups, but perhaps "hue" would have been a better choice.
  14. Hi all, I recently updated to Affinity Photo 1.7.1.404 from 1.6.5.x through the Windows Store and now every image that I open, whether it's an *.afphoto, DNG, JPEG, PNG etc., opens way too dark. Documents created in previous versions are also rendered way too dark but are exported with the right colours and brightness, while new documents result in overly exposed images, more like as if the gamma went through the ceiling. The samples available in the Welcome screen also seem to not match the snapshots available on the Windows Store. From the same snapshots I also noticed that the icon for the Photo persona also seems darker. The "Color" panel also gets way too dark. My device: Windows Store snapshot: Software configurations: I tried running the trial version of Affinity Photo 1.6.5 (got it from the Downloads page) and the problem now seems to happen there as well My device is the Dell XPS 9570, running Windows 10 1903 with Intel UHD Graphics 630 (driver version 25.20.100). This issue also affects Affinity Designer but every other app on my system works just fine. Ideas?
  15. This is a video of me talking about a couple of the problems with how Designer deals with color, and likely Affinity Photo as well. And this video should explain at least somewhat well why the gradients are too dark. If there are any Affinity devs active here, a response/acknowledgement of the problem/solution from them would be appreciated. Thanks! P.S. Shortly after I made this vid, I actually did go and buy AD. So I hope even more now that these problems get fixed. Like the point I tried to make in the video, would these issues really be that hard to program out? affinitydesignerproblem.mp4
  16. Hello Affinity Photo development team, I'm a newbie to your program, but have worked as a digital illustrator for several years. Affinity Photo is a really nice program - a nice alternative to Photoshop. It could be a great program for digital illustrators and painters... But it is missing a critical option for higher speed efficiency: a fast color picker option by pressing "Ctrl" or "Alt" This is present in Photoshop, Corel Painter, Krita, OpenCanvas, PaintStorm Studio, etc. It is very important to painters to be able to access the color picker quickly. When you hold down "Ctrl" or "Alt" and click on the color - it color picks it. Then when you let go of the "Ctrl" or "Alt" key, it goes back to the tool you were using before. When you have to switch between brush and color picker, this wastes twice the amount of time. An extra second or fraction of a second may not seem like a lot - but it adds up. A painting that would take 2 hours, takes 4 hours. A piece that would take 1 day, takes 2 days. 1 week turns into 2 weeks, etc. This would be a great addition to Affinity Photo - for all artists. One last idea... Is allowing the user to "fix" the color wheel triangle in a fixed position - instead of having it rotate all around pointing at the chosen color. Why? Because having lightness point up, darkness point down, and saturation point right - is far easier for the brain to process than having the triangle flip all around the wheel... it makes picking specific shades across different colors inconsistent.. harder to match the same saturation position on different colors... because it has changed position. It's easier for the brain to map out the color triangle when it's fixed in one position. White up - black down - and saturation to the right.. Would be far easier to remember for artists - who need consistency, and speed in color picking. Thank you immensely for viewing and considering these ideas!!
  17. I have noticed a sizeable difference in color quality when printing the same photo using Affinity Photo vs. Photoshop, on the same printer, with the same settings. The colors I get from printing from Photoshop are truer to the original photos than the colors I get when printing from Affinity Photo. This is especially true of the blues. PS prints a wider range of blues than does AP. I recently printed a photo that had a lot of dark blue gray in it, and the print from AP was almost complete gray with little blue. Part of the issue seems to be there there are more color settings available in PS than in AP. In PS, you can indicate a rendering intent and check black point compensation. As far as I could tell, these settings were not available in AP. At the moment, I have both programs on my desktop computer but only AP on my laptop. At some point, I will no longer have PS available to me as it won't be compatible with further Mac OS upgrades. At that point, if I wanted to use PS for printing, I would have to purchase a subscription to PS which is something I don't want to do and the reason that I purchased AP. So, my questions are: 1. Does AP have any plans to improve its color management tool to get better color output? 2. Are there already color management tools in AP that allow for more fine tuning of color output, tools that I'm missing or unaware of? 3. Has anyone else noticed these differences and found a way to compensate for them, such as increasing the amount of blue in a photo with an HSL adjustment layer? This seems like a very hit or miss strategy, however. Thanks
  18. Hey everyone! This feature request is for macOS as well as for iPad. It's great nested symbols is implemented now. I have a suggestion that would make things easier to see what's going on: It would be useful if there were different symbol indicator colors depending on symbol nesting depth. For example: Normal symbol: Orange Symbol that holds symbol(s): Yellow Symbol that holds symbol(s) that hold(s) symbol(s): Green ..... Blue ..... Pink ..... Purple ..... Red Best wishes, Shu
  19. I really need to be able to import swatches in the iPad apps, and I can find no logical reason not to have this feature. I can import brushes, fonts, symbols, assets, but not swatches? It is essential when working with color to be able to import a palette with specific characteristics. On the desktop it is so easy to do, but on the iPad it is impossible... Also I considered creating a swatches set myself from an imported image, but this required so much back and forth, clicking and opening menus it was a nightmare and I gave up after 4 colors. Please implement importing swatches soon.
  20. Check the attachment. Default color difference between two apps. Why is this happening?
  21. Hey Guys, could anyone help me with affinity photo on IPad? I can‘t select any color with the color selection tool! Thanks for your replies Your I_like_cameras

  23. Dear Affinity Support Team, I just bought Affinity Photo and am truly impressed by its functionality and ease of use. I really love the software, however I realized there is probably one minor defect in displaying images (if it can be termed that way)... My setup (SW, HW). I'm using Affinity Photo 1.6.5.135 on Windows 10 Pro, on a Lenovo ThinkPad T560 laptop with Intel i7-6600 and 16 GB RAM. I'm using the built-in computer screen along with an external screen (Eizo FlexScan EV2335W), both color-profiled using my X-Rite i1 Display Pro. The problem. Affinity Photo seems to only display colors of my pictures correctly on my built-in screen. As soon as I move the Affinity window to my other screen, the colors become slightly shifted and inaccurate. I mostly work with 16-bit TIFF images using ProPhotoRGB (ROMM RGB); and I even set the global Affinity Photo settings accordingly (Edit --> Preferences --> Colour --> ...); however, this problem shows up even if I open sRGB images. I wasn't able to iterate to a correct color representation on my external screen no matter what color profile I assigned to the document (picture). The only thing that appeared to help was to simply move the Affinity Photo window to my built-in screen. Side notes. I many times noticed that many application and even Windows itself tends to have issues with this, each in its own way. For example, mspaint.exe is always way off on any of my screens (way too dark and muted) from the point of applying color profiles to my screens, while another application I use (XnView) displays it always correctly. Capture One, DxO PhotoLab and even Adobe Photoshop also display images correctly and consistently on both screens. Also, I wasn't able to document this using screenshots, as that happens to capture the colors consistently, as they show up on my built-in monitor; however, when I compared the same file opened by Affinity Photo and XnView, the incorrect color shift on Affinity Photo was apparent (more purple-ish colors in my case). I would appreciate your advice in case I'm doing something wrong or in case I missed some important configuration options to adjust. In the mean time it would even help if I could reconfigure Windows together with Affinity Photo to use my secondary screen's ICC profile as the default one, since that one is more suited for image editing. Thank you in advance. Best regards, mk0x55
  24. Hi all, from one day to the next something has got mixed up with the color management in Affinity Design. The white became a yolk yellow. When I tried to change the color profiles in affinity, sometimes nothing happens and the white remains yolk yellow. With other documents the background becomes a neutral white but other elements that should be also neutral white remain yolk yellow. Like I said, I tried to change profiles, from RGB to CYMK, from AdobeRGB to the Benq-Profile (my monitor). Nothing worked. When I start with a RGB/8 and Benq-Profile everything is shown correctly, but the PDF documents I import, always have this yolk yellow instead of neutral white. I have to say that I am not a professional graphic guy. This problems I have on a Windows computer. Can someone please help me? Thank you
  25. I have a X-Rite ColorMunki Display to calibrate my screens. It even has support for iPad/iPhone, so I calibrated my iPad Pro 12.9" Mk.I with it and my iPhone 7 too. I can use an app called ColorTRUE to view my photos in real color on my iPad/iPhone. X-Rite says that other apps can be made to use the ColorTRUE profiles, so they will show true colors. As a photographer on the go, I often don't bring my heavy laptop with me with the calibrated screen and I rely on my iPad Pro 12.9" Mk.1 (which by the way has a terrible calibrated screen out of the factory). I edit a photo in Affinity Photo for iPad, export it and then check the real colors in the ColorTRUE app. Then go back to Affinity Photo and adjust colors, white balance, etc. if I need to. This is very cumbersome. If Affinity Photo for iPad could use the ColorTRUE Profile of my iPad, this cumbersome work around would not exist and I could use my iPad for more color critical photo work more easily. Are there plans for Affinity Photo for iPad to use ColorTRUE profiles? If not, are you willing to think about it? This would really make Affinity Photo for iPad justify the Pro in iPad Pro IMHO!
