  1. 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.
  2. I would like to export the same resolution in document in SVG. How do i do that or there is no option that can do it. Rasterizing ruins its (attached photos) background.svg
  3. I just purchased Affinity Photos and tried opening some RAW files from my Canon 6D Mark II on Affinity Photos on my Windows 7 laptop. The raw files are opening up with a purple tinge to it. I believe it is because the software is not able to read some of the colors and tones in newer camera raw files. These pictures open fine when I open in Canon RAW digital photo professional 4 software and other recent photo software or in my phone using snapseed. I have attached the sample raw file from my camera that I am trying to open and which has this problem. IMG_0114.CR2
  4. I found a bug in affinity photo, using of the nik filter is useless because the correct color mode is not applied for the pic a send to one of the nik filter. See screensshot. I use romm-rgb.
  5. Does Affinity Designer have a Smart Color Wizard? It should be able to: Analyze all (or only the selected layer) colors in the project and then suggest one or more colors which best fit these colors by using different algorithms. That would be VERY useful!
  6. I wanted a base palette that I could use on my illustrations, with a range of shades, and highlights/shadows for each. So I made my own: It's a good starting point for illustrations, icons & UI work. There's more than 100 swatches, nicely organized. Comes in several formats, of course .afpalette included. Grab it over at CreativeMarket!
  7. Hi everyone, i´ve got a question, i couldn´t find a explanation about registration colors, you can produce them in the swatches panel, i found explanations for overprint and spot colors, but can someone point me to an explanation of "Registration Colors" ? what is it for ? thanks
  8. Hi, So when it comes to colors, here´s a little suggestion what could be done to improve the workflow when you start your document and decide to use swatches and improve your colours. dont look at the design of my idea, rather look at the idea... When you creat colour chords, right now , you can select a colour and right click, select from some possibilitys like Complementary, Triadic and so on.. I would like a funktion to open a window like shown, get an optical representation inside of the color wheel and adjust my colors by just rotaiting in this example my colors, to change them, than just move some triangles or points, to adjust the amount of the color split, and than just klick load them to my palette.. only maybe, could it be possible for the program, to use my underlaying actual image, and interactive while rotating, moving and adjusting my Color Chord , somehow change interactive also the most corresponding olors of the opend image ? not sure how this could be possible.. but the first part, just creating color chords this way, as it is allready possible in many video edditing programs, would be an improvement.. maybe put it to your whishlists.. greetings
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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).
  12. 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.
  13. 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.

  15. 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

  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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.
  24. 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!
  25. 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
