Gear maker posted a topic in Affinity on Desktop Questions (Mac and Windows)I don't believe I've ever seen this question or an answer for it before. In the color picker tool there is a radius that can set to an area to be averaged for the color. If I select a 5x5 area, how big is this area? How do I know if a 5 unit square will cover the area I need and not bleed into an area not wanted? All the Help says is: Radius—Choose to sample from directly under the cursor (Point 1x1) or from differently sized square areas where the color is averaged. My guess is this is the number of screen pixels to be averaged. So if I have about 109 pixels per inch on my screen, then each pixel is about 9/1000 of an inch. So if I have selected 129x129 then everything that is in a square about 1-1/4 inch wide and high with the cursor centered in it will be averaged. Regardless of the zoom. So 5x5 would be an area about 0.046 inches (about 3/64") square. So if I zoom in on a pixelated image where each displayed pixel is maybe 0.1" square a setting of 5x5 will still only read that pixel in the image. When trying to average out a dithered image I would have to use a setting significantly larger setting or zoom way out. Is this correct?
When in the Color picker tool (eyedropper) changes of the layer selected from the layer panel do not change which layer is indicated by the blue outline in the drawing. I don't know if this is related to this report of not.
Hi.. I use this document setup: type: print (press ready) color format: cmyk/8 color profile: U. S. web coated (SWOP) v2 But I have some issues, when I choose the color on the box, and I pick that color with "color picker tool" to coloring another object, the result is totally different, only cmyk code is the same. Yes I can just copy the #xxxxxx code to coloring another object, but I want to use that color picker tool because it's simple. And the client usually use AI to open eps file, I tried to export my files from affinity to eps file, and open it in AI, and yes the color code is changing, I'm confused :p Please help me to solve this issues. Thank you for your attention :)
