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
Maybe this is a simple one for someone else, but I cannot explain it: Opening the same picture the colors look different in Affinity compared to another viewers. I think the look of the other viewer is the expected one, but in Affinity it looks more smooth/softer and colors are changed. The screendump attached shows what I mean, I believe. Left is Affinity and right is the other viewer opening the same file. The file was created within Affinity out a RAW picture and saved as jpg. The original RAW picture opened again in Affinity does look the same as the jpg opened in Affinity. Opening the same picture in GIMP it does look like the right version of the screendump again, so I believe it is caused by Affinity but I do not know how to solve. Some advice on this?
