  1. Hi Everyone, In the need to understand the sometimes complex subject of Color Models, Color Spaces and Color Profiles better, I found it hard to find a nice to read and complete source on the matter. So after I did a deep dive into the subject I decided to share what I've learned about it by writing a tutorial blog about it with illustrations and interactives. Yesterday I published part one about Color Models and color basics, to pave the way to Color Spaces for the next and last part of the article. Although not directly Affinity related, I figured this could benefit other Affinity users too in understanding Color Spaces better and when to choose which in Designer and Photo. And making Color Spaces a little less confusing to understand. Of coarse all graphics-work for illustrations and interactives in the tutorial are made in Affinity Designer. The blog is available in both Dutch (https://www.wigglepixel.nl/blog/wat-zijn-color-models/) and translated in English (https://www.wigglepixel.nl/en/blog/what-are-color-models/). Hope you like it and if this makes others understand the subject better and as enthousiastic as I am now about it after this, I reached my goal! Maarten
  2. 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!
  3. I am using the Affinity Photo program for Windows 10. Does the Affinity Photo program automatically use the the default ICC profile that is set in Windows Color Management? In Affinity Photo Preferences there are two settings, "RGB Color Profile" and "32 bit RGB Color Profile". These settings have the "sRGB IEC61966-2.1" text entered. Do I leave these settings with their current settings, or do I enter the name of the profile that is set as the default profile in Windows Color Management? And do I set the program to "Embed ICC Profile" when exporting JPG files? I do not know how to think through this situation to obtain the correct settings. Perhaps someone can provide enough information so I can confidently use the color management settings of the Affinity Photo program.
  4. Hi all, I'm relatively new to photography and affinity photo (on a Mac, OS Mojave) , but I was loading some photos in from my Canon EOS Rebel T6 and the photo seems to opens with a wildly different color profile. The screenshot shows the same file opened in preview and affinity photo unedited. I just installed Affinity Photo on this computer so I haven't changed any default settings, etc. I'm not sure where to start with loading this back to "default" so the RAW photo opens with the proper color scheme. Raw file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3c14gijqm0i1j8z/IMG_0535.CR2?dl=0
  5. Hi, Could you please add a new item in the Color Profile, "None" or "Undefined", sometimes the Color profile cause a problem on certain Commercial Highlight color laser printer. Thanks for this very promize great program!
  6. Is there a way to import Illustrator color profiles into Affinity Designer? Like many others, I'm migrating from Illustrator and I have color profiles from my printer that I need to import.
  7. Is there a suggested color profile and export method for web graphics? I've been testing how to get my exported graphics to look the same in the browser as they do in Affinity programs. I found that the "Wide Gamut RGB" profile looks good and then exporting that profile with the image produces pretty similar results. Is this the optimal method? Thanks.
  8. The printing company I want to use says they use Euroscale as a color profile for CMYK documents. I can see that export profile is available in Affinity Photo but it is not in the dropdown for Affinity Designer (both were version 1.5 when I bought them a couple of weeks back for my Windows 10 desktop). I have upgraded to 1.6 for each but the problem persists. Both programmes have an icc folder under resources but I cannot find Euroscale under either (I was hoping to maybe copy it from Photo to Designer). I wonder if it has been replaced by another profile with a different name. If so what is it. As a side issue is there a place on the website with version release notes as that would be a great place to look.
  9. Well, I need a clou here if I‘m just overlooking something or it is just currently not possible :) I made two different documents in Designer on my iMac: 1) CMYK with the Generic CMYK profile 2) CMYK und the ISO Coated v2 300% (ECI) Now, for example, if I create a red object with 100M 100Y in the Generic document and it looks like it should. If I copy it and paste it into the ISO Coated document it converts the color appropriate to the other profile: for now 2C 95M 83Y 6K and looks surely different. In other programms like Illustrator, ... I have the option to paste with converting into the profile or use the color values – and that is what I am missing. It just converts every time to the profile instead to use the correct values or even giving me the choice. If I place the Generic document (with the place command) into the ISO Coated document and double click the now embedded object, it opens and show me correct the 100M 100Y values inside the ISO Coated document. It correctly converts only if I export it to PDF with the document profile. I can switch the profile in the document prefs and select asign or convert, but all things pasted via the clipboard get always converted. Ist there an option the preserve the values? Thanks for any help in advance. :-)
  10. Hello! I just made a business card to be printed by a local printing company with a online shop. On their website they recommend to use a bleed of 3mm and a specific color profile for cmyk (iso coated 300%). Installing the profile and setting the document to those settings are easy in designer! But at exporting I got some issues I do not understand completely, thats why I ask here: - In my document I have two artboards, one for front and one for back - I assume that the document settings are valid for all artboards in a document!? (color profile and bleed) - I exported my document as one PDF-file (with two sites in it, one for front and on for back). I exported as PDF x4, including bleed and crop marks, using the document color profile. - When I open the exported pdf (I work on a iMac), the pdf is of course bigger then the business card, because I added bleed and crop marcs, but the document is more then the 3mm bigger? why? The business card artboard is set to 85mm x 48mm and bleed is set to 3mm on each side...shouldn't be the exported PDF then 85+6mm x 54+6mm? When I set the view of the exported PDF to 100% the distance between the crop marks was correct, but the whole document was about 10mm bigger all around...no big issue, and maybe thats just a PDF-display thing, but I wanted to ask to understand whats going on here... - If i set a bleed, i cannot find a option to display the bleed around each artboard, maybe that would make things easier? - The second issue was, that the printing company told me that one of the two sides (remember, I exported one PDF out of one document) where in RGB...how can this be?? The only reason I can immagine are the inserted pics I used (made in affinity photo and exported as PNG in ROMM)...aren´t they converted to the document profile when placed in designer?? The file i added is the one I sent to my printing company... Thanks for some light into my darkness! Andreas VC - Anna - Endversion - soBestellt.pdf
  11. Hello all, I've only seen an old thread about this with no clear fix so I've decided to start a new one. As you can see in the attached image, my "white" in Affinity definitely is not "white" as in the rest of aplications in my computer (the Notepad there provides an example). I'm working on a second screen display, an AOC e2351Fh monitor, (although the issue persists even if I set windows to project only on the notebook screen, not sure if this really matters), my graphic card is a GeForce GTM870m, and my NVIDIA Control Panel settings seems to be correct (designer.exe is set to high performance NVIDIA processor). I could provide you with some screenshots of my monitor color profile but then you would have to tell me exactly what you want me to screenshot. Oh, and this is on Windows 10. That said, what should I do about this? Any tips? Thanks!
  12. Affinity Designer & Photo both crash on startup on Windows 10 when trying to open any .EPS CMYK image. Affinity Designer Version: 1.5.3.69 OS: Windows 10 (up to date) Test image: https://www.livsmedelsverket.se/globalassets/om-oss/press/logotyper/livsmedelsverket-logotyp-cmyk.eps Attached .DMP and screenshot. 8abd9049-05a7-4934-85d8-033293a0d8e3.dmp
  13. Hello first let me congratulate you for the amazing ipad app, just loving it...fantastic work...I am running the Beta I am running into an issue though with exporting my tiff files for printing. I export them as 16 bit tiffs in the adobe RGB space because there is no Prophoto option ( where is it?) and adobe RGB seems to be the next best choice ... correct? the export files opens perfect in AP desktop but wether I try to print the file from the IPAD or export in Prophoto from AP desktop they do not print properly but look like closups of very heavy noise artifacts.... I am printing from COLORBURST OVERDRIVE that reads the file and shows a normal preview. Never had a problem with COLORBURST and AP desktop files What do you reckon and suggest??. I think it could be interesting to put together a tutorial about preferences both for AP desktop and AP Ipad
  14. I'm having an issue when exporting .png assets from Affinity Designer for use in a website. When Chrome (on Windows) displays the .png image, the color does not match the HEX value I've assigned in Affinity designer. Here's a quick example of a square that I made both in Affinity Designer and in Photoshop. Both have a hex value of #252E42. I embedded them both next to each other on a HTML page that also has a background-color of #252E42. I've attached the result. As you can see the rectangle exported from Photoshop is completely invisible, which is exactly what I expect. But the rectangle from Designer is clearly visible. What is going on here? Do I have to change some color profile settings in order to make this work?

    Color profile bug

    Hey everyone, I'm new here, but I've had Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer for a while now. I didn't notice this bug until I got a new 144hz gaming monitor: the AOC G2460. I'm also not an expert in color profiles, so please forgive me if I get some terms wrong. The problem is this: when I opened up a new document in either Affinity Photo or Affinity Designer, the color white would look like light yellow. In fact, all graphics displayed ended up with a yellow tint. So I changed the ICC to the right one for my monitor (which is also being used for the monitor in my Windows settings). That solves one problem: my documents look just fine. White looks white. The user interface, however, doesn't seem to get the memo about the ICC change. White in the color picker still looks light yellow. The rest of the interface seems to have the same issue. It's not a total deal breaker, but it is annoying. As this only affects my new monitor, I can't exactly screenshot the issue for you. On any other monitor, all looks as it should, more or less. But as my secondary monitor is older and seems to be a bit less bright overall, I'd like to use the new one. I did test this with other software. Once I selected the right color profile, the GIMP seemed to handle everything just fine. So yeah, how do I get the color picker to use the same color profile as my document? And yes, I have gone to the app settings to select the right profile there. No change.
  16. In my previous post I received some help in regards to what settings to use in AD for your color profile, now as I continue to do my Lets Make Shapes project or Spacetronauts I realized that I can't put them on Redbubble or Inprnt because of different colors. Which the previous solution was : "The color profile you want to use as the Designer document is setup to use Wide Gamut RGB. If when exporting click on More and change the ICC profile to sRGB this should be closer to what you are wanting, for posting on the Web" - Lee D Now what I am wondering is what color profiles to use in scenario for printing your digital artworks? Because on Redbubble : "Our garment printers only print in the CMYK format so we recommend designing in this colour spectrum as it will give you a better idea of how the final product will look. You will still need to convert to sRGB colour profile to get your works looking as glorious as possible on the site." - And seeing all of my designs for AD has been designed in the solution posted above, will I be able to convert them to CMYK without losing much of the color choices? Thanks in advance!
  17. I don't know much about color formats and color profiles, so I could use some help. I have a project that I plan to get professionally printed. However, I tried printing on my home printer as well as FedEx Office and the colors are drastically different from my monitor (Dell UltraSharp U3415W PXF9 34" Curved LED-Lit Monitor). When printed, my purple looks like blue, and my light gray looks dark, etc. I have my document setup as Print-ready with CMYK/8 and all my colors have been created using the CMYK slider. This has been the case since I first started this document. So, I have a couple questions: 1. Am I doing something wrong? 2. What is a color profile? 3. How do I prevent this from happening when I get it professionally printed? (I think they want PDF, but may accept other formats) Thank you in advance! I attached a couple images of my Document Setup and CMYK Slider.
  18. Dear everybody, I'm not quite new to Affinity and I'm quite good at googling problems and solving them myself, but Ive come now across a problem I can't find anywhere: once I save print project, I cannot see layers in viewer. However, I can see preview in layers panel. You may see this on screenshot attached. Here's unsaved project: as soon as I save it, here's how it looks: I think there's something wrong with color profiles, but can't find any solution. Is there someone who came across with this? Thanks!
  19. Alright, I have to fix this mystery once and for all. I do not know what else needs to be done in order to fix this issue, however when I save my images in Affinity, they turn into a completely different colors when I import them on other programs such as a video editor. Now I open the same image and save it as the same file from Adobe Photoshop, and the colors are kept as the original (how it should look) Video demonstration of what I mean https://youtu.be/TcIIPjjtxE4
  20. I am building a black and white (grayscale) advertisement. Final PDF for printing needs to be in CMYK with only the black ink being used. The issue I came across is when I place a (8 bit) grayscale image that has any ICC color profile (Dot Gain 20% or whatever) attached it exports as a CMYK build in the PDF and not in just the black. When I place an image with no ICC color profile it exports correctly using just the black ink. I am starting the export process with the "PDF (for export)" preset, the "PDF (for print)" seemed to create other issues. The "X1a" preset seemed to totally whack out the black tonal ranges. Not being able to use images with attached color profiles in placed images could be a real issue for print production work. I have attached three PDF's two from Designer and one I output from Illustrator. In the Designer PDFs the smaller inset photo (of the guy) uses an attached profile in one and the other is without. The placed TIFF files both came from Affinity Photo, but I get the same results from images exported out of Photo Shop. In the PDF from Illustrator the image does include an ICC profile with the image and the export to PDF worked fine. Also please notice the huge difference in file sizes, the Designer PDF files seem a lot bigger than they need to be. Let me know if you need the Designer file. There was also an issues with areas where an overlaying transparency effects was used in some of the PDF's I exported from Designer as well. But that can be for another bug report.

  21. We achieved accurate colors in offset (Ryobi 522) with ISO Coated v2 (ECI) color profile. How I can use it in Affinity?
  22. I have two problems with Affinity Designer: 1. On integrated graphic driver affinity shows white as beige (on nvidia it's ok) 2. Aligning text to a selection is messed up. (even on nvidia) Both problems on the screenshot (or attachment): https://scr.hu/jrk38K
  23. Hi, I have this issue with color rendition in Affinity photo. When I open photo colors are display incorrectly. They seem to be more saturated, photos have more contrast. This is best visible on reds and blues (se attached examples). I tested this using my own photos straight from the camera and developed in Silkypix Developer studio Pro7. I also tried jpgs and RAWs downloaded from the internet. Colors are consistent in all aplications I tried including Photoshop. I spent numerous hours yesterday trying to solve this (assuming that there was incorrect default color profiles in Affinity) but I couldn't find solution. This is pretty fundamental! My monitor is color calibrated and system is Windows 10. Can other users confirm this issue (No need for Photoshop just against windows photo wiewer or other software)? Thanks Dnat

    Yet color profile problems

    Hello I have some problem while importing and exporting eps files. When I import a CMYK eps, Designer converts it assigning a RGB profile. So I need to select again all lines (it shows that colors are correct (0,0,0,100K) but it is wrong because in reality it converted those colors into RGB (I see it opening in Illustrator)); so I have to go again to the "color select sliders", drag the K slider left and right again to 100% and then export in "eps (Print mode)". Is this maybe becaus of "print mode eps export"? If yes how can I export an eps in CMYK? In addition I need of a way to not convert on opening, and not assign a color profile, just read colors applied to the lines. thank you! Denis
  25. Hello, By executing the following steps: Import an Adobe RGB jpeg picture in Apple Photos, Edit the photo through the Affinity Photo extension "Edit in Affinity Photo" AP does not identify the color profile and it assigns the default one. If I simply open the picture with AP, the color profile it's managed correctly. Does Apple Photos purge the color profile data? Is there any other way to edit the file directly without using the "External Editors" extension? Thank you
