  1. Hello this is my first topic, I will probably buy windows license because I believe it is a great tool for developing raw xtrans-III files, I am using trial version right and I do not find 2 things: 1.- fujifilm color presets 2.- lens correction presets regards
  2. Although the range of picker types you have is quite wonderful, I'm used to working with HSB/V (Brightness or Value) instead of HSL (for lightness.) It's a common way of specifying colors especially in the land of video. HSL is a similar user experience, but there are a lot of times where it just makes sense to think of 100% brightness (which, to get the same RGB value, somehow works out to 50% lightness.) (And as you probably know, Adobe Photoshop's picker has HSB, not HSL.) This website does a great job of dynamically showing the difference: http://colorizer.org Would you consider adding this option to Designer/Photo/Photo for iPad? Thanks.
  3. Hi , My last Question for today.... Well , while using the collors palette, is there any shortcut, to fast switch over to Black or white color ? Someone told me in photoshop you can find a shortcut for this thanks.. Tom
  4. Recently picked up a copy of Affinity photo and though much of the program works like photoshop and was easy to switch to, I found some short cut keys missing which I feel are very important. There are no short cut keys for changing the foreground and background colors to Black and White (Photoshop has the letter D) and there is no short cut for reverting back to the original image (Photoshop has the '\' key).
  5. I just noticed something peculiar. I'm doing some exporting for print to CYMK. I'm using a single color created by using the color overlay FX setting. I noticed, however, that when I was switching between RGB and CYMK, that the initial reading in moving from one color mode to another was different than the second reading after I closed the FX window and then opened it again. So, there is a conversion going on from RGB to CYMK or vice versa, that later "corrects" itself to the right value (or wrong?). So the problem is obvious. What if I was to trust the initial reading and perhaps relay that to a client, only to look again later to see that the number values for that color had changed? I've attached two screenshots of the issue. The actual color (to my eyes) appears the same. Yet the color values have shifted by closing the panel and opening it again. Is this typical, "expected" behavior, or did I find a bug? I'm using AD 1.55.
  6. This feature would be very useful: An algorithm analyzes all colors used in the document and changes them to a harmonious color set. Then it presents a preview of several different (random) proposals on how these colors are distributed in the document. Then the user can pick the proposal he likes the most. This is how it could be achieved: For example, the document contains these 3 colors: ColorA, ColorB and ColorC. Then, starting from a CustomSetOfHarmoniousColors, the algorithm parses all document colors and for each document color, it searches the nearest color in the CustomSetOfHarmoniousColors. Then, it approximates each document color to its nearest harmonious color by a preset percentage.

  8. Hi, I don't know if I'm posting this at the right place, but I have a problem in Affinity Designer on Windows. The colors of the program are not the right colors. When I export a file, the colors are right. I attached a screenshot of an exported image on the left and Affinity Designer on the right. How can I fix this problem? I can't see what colors I use when I'm designing, only when I export it. The problem applies to any document I open/create and also applies to the UI of the program. This makes it very hard to design. Sincerely, Tijmen

  10. Hi all, im up this zip containing two pallets rgb and cmyk basic. colors set.zip

  12. It's nice that Affinity Photo has got such good support of the 32 floating point mode but it is somehow unfinished. There are particularly two things that I desperately miss: 1. The ability to show the 32 bit float color values in the info panel. How should we work accurately with 32 bit float values if they are displayed nowhere? All that I can see are the conventional RGB values from 0 - 255 but these are meaningless in 32 bit float. 32 bit float per definition contains color values below 0 (actually a bad thing) or above 1 (actually a good thing). 2. Please make the curves dialogue zoomable so we can also edit values that exceed the white point of 1. The values beyond the white point are in fact one of the main advantages of 32 bit float.
  13. 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
  14. I've tried manually dragging them apart and back to their original locations, as well as searching the 'View' and other main menus but haven't yet found how to uncouple them. Additionally, when I select something from the Color-panel...it 'leaps' in front of the now combination Layer/Transform-panel. I'd love to know the 'How & Why' to this as it may come in handy in the future. But for now, I'd like to return the 'studio' to its original default panel set. *AD 1.5.4 on a MacBook Pro* Would someone please enlighten me? Thanks much, -Christo
  15. Based on https://material.io/guidelines/style/color.htmlI created swatches for Affinity with all Material Design colors, properly named nad sorted. Enjoy Material.zip
  16. For fantasy book covers like the one below, they always have colorful skies. Among a host of fantasy effects, I desperately need to learn how to change the colors of sky, so they have multiple unnatural colors. Or even just to change the blue in a stormy sky to like a diff color. Any help? Even just tell me what tool to use? Thank you so much!! Seriously, I would pay money if someone made a course on book covers for Affinity.
  17. Hi there, I usually solely work with sRGB IEC61966-2.1 but unfortunately the exports looked like crap, so I tried every installed ICC profile and realised that the profile that the exported picture looks alike is the Samsung Natural Color Pro. I thus checked all the settings, converted the ICC to sRGB again, set it manually in the exporter but it still didnt work - it kept exporting with the Samsung profile. In the end the only solution I could find was to convert to the Samsung profile and, additionally, set it manually in the exporter instead of using document profile. This does not seem to be a solution on the long term. Maybe someone else has made similar experiences and can confirm this bug. Many thanks!
  18. Hi there, I'm quit a newbee with Afiinity Designer. I love the software program and how easier it is compared to Adobe Illustrator. I have a question. I made a business card for myself that i want to be printed out in CMYK or PMS colors. I have included an example how it will be. 1) The color in picture A is a bright neon color, this is how i love it to be in a printed form. But this was made in RGB/8 . I know if you want something to be printed professionally that it has to be made in CMYK. 2) The color in picture B is the same design, but with the colors converted to CMYK. It hasn't the same effect as the one in RGB. Less brighter. How can i have the same bright color from the RGB version in a CMYK or Pantone version so that i can be send to a professional printing office. Could you please show me in a few simple steps how i can achieve this? :) Thank you in advance. Visitekaartjes Four Four RGB - front 2017.afdesign Visitekaartjes Four Four CMYK - front 2017.afdesign
  19. Procedural workflow has and is growing and becoming a large driving force in content creation. Something I always knew would be make things very quick to iterate or change, and also keep things consistent and simple, would be referenced colors. So maybe your documents has a palette with named slots, and when you go to select a fill/stroke color, you can optionally select one of these named slots. Other fills or strokes can reference this same slot. Then if you decide you want to change colors later, you simple adjust this palette and every object using those slots gets updated. To extend this concept, it could almost be like symbols but for object appearance where you can have synchronized styles, that way all the parameters are shared, like stroke width, profile, etc.
  20. I like to post on top of a colored area transparent black and white patterns, for example dot fields or hatchings. I cannot find patterns and how to fix them on top of colors.
  21. When I open a picture in APwin, the picture looks a little colorless. It is not much, but noticeable. In IrfanView, Corel, Internet, and other programs) the picture looks more powerful. See attached files. When I edit the image in APwin and export it, the exported picture is again more powerful. But this is not good, because I have altered the picture as I saw it in APwin. Then I don’t want a change in the colors. Is this a bug in APwin?
  22. When I import swatches using the “Import Palette…” item, I should be able to select palettes saved from Photoshop (ACO – Adobe Photoshop Color Swatch File) or Illustrator (ASE – Adobe Swatch Exchange File). Are there foreign palette formats that AD can import? Maybe that information should be in the Open dialog box… or somewhere. (The Help Center doesn’t seem to do anything. I can search for a topic like “palette,” but can’t expand the results, so maybe the AD entries are just stubs?)
  23. I got really used to a similar feature in Sketch – when the color picker is activated, all the guides and gridlines are automatically hidden. When you click and pick a color, they reappear. That's a little touch, but it makes picking colors quicker and error-proof. I'd love to see a similar feature implemented in AD. :)
  24. I've create a little illustration, when copyy pasting it to sketch the colours go wierd. the correct colour should be "81BA2F" when checking with photoshop both ar not this colour. anyone know how to get consistant colouring?
  25. I have used the Create Palette From Document command to fill my own palette with the allready used colors. Now I played around and added some more colors, but I don't need all of them at last. Is there a way to delete the unused colors of the palette automatically? It should be cause of automatic creation is possible :) Also, I can't edit a saved palette color. I can rename it and delete the fill but I can't change the color. Is this correct or does the beta jokes on me? I think it is important to change an existing color -> which also changes the color of all objects that used this fill.
