Hi all, I have a question regarding greyscale document setup in Affinity Designer and image greyscale format in Affinity Photo. My normal workflow is to create a Grey/8 Greyscale D50 document in Affinity Designer. I first edit my images in Affinity Photo and convert the images to Grey/8 Greyscale D50. I then import the images into Affinity Designer. My question is, what is the best workflow for accurate greyscale images? The other options are Generic Gray Gamma 2.2 Profile or Generic Gray Profile - what is the difference between the three options? Also what settings is recommended for pdf export for printing on press. *The setup is for a Year Book where most pages will be printed on a press with black ink only. Thank you.
I have an unprofiled grayscale image that AP insists on opening in RGB color space, not Grayscale. The Color Profiles section of Preferences has different scenarios for assigning profiles, but is there a way to open an unprofiled grayscale file in Grayscale color space? Photoshop opens unprofiled grayscale files in grayscale color space as expected, why can't AP? I opened said file in PS, re-saved it as grayscale with Gray Gamma 2.2 profile, AP now opens it in Grayscale color space with Greyscale D50 profile. But what about AP opening it in Grayscale with the Greyscale D50 profile from the get go?
