  1. Update fixes the previous inability to apply a supplied or custom-calibrated .icc paper profile to a print job. (Previously, the printer dialog would spontaneously revert to the image colour profile, eg. ProPhoto. This deficiency was my last tether to Photoshop, so I can now slot Affinity Photo into my colour-managed workflow. Thank you to the development team. You should really highlight this fix in the release notes. It was a show-stopper for photographers who actually print their work. I happily discovered the fix by testing the new releases.
  2. In the printer dialog boxes of both Design and Photo for Windows, it is possible to select a colour management profile for the target printer separate from the document colour profile which is automatically extracted from the document itself. However, this printer profile selection disappears as soon as the user leaves the dialog box, either to print the document or to make some other adjustment to the print job. Both Design and Photo reject the user-selected printer profile and automatically revert to the document profile. In a colour-managed environment, the user specifies a specific colour profile for the document before it is saved, and another for the printer as the print job is defined in the Affinity print dialog boxes. The printer profile can be an .icc or .icm files generated by a colour calibration device, such as ColorMunki or it can be supplied by the paper manufacturer. Unless I am missing something (and I sincerely hope I am) this situation makes Affinity products incompatible with a colour-managed (ie professional) workflow. This must be cutting Affinity off from a large pool of potential recruits. This situation was first reported by others back in 2016 (search "printer profile" in the Bugs forum) and Affinity acknowledged it was indeed a software bug. That Affinity would perpetuate such a critical bug in a new software update (1.6) may indicate that this issue dropped off the fix list before it was addressed. For the record, the printer profile I am attempting to select works just fine in Photoshop. Again, I do hope I am wrong and require only some kind guidance to make colour management work in Affinity.
  3. I created some custom profiles for my Canon iP6700D, using the Profile Prism app, for printing with Lightroom under Windows 10. I put the ICC file C\windows\system32\spool\drivers\color...with all the other Windows device profile files. I'm relatively new to Affinity photo, had it only a few months. When I print from Photo, I can't find the printer profiles I created and used in Lightroom, in the drop down lists. I also put the profiles in the Appdata\affinity\...\profiles folder (just in case), but still they don't show. When I do a reverse search e.g. in the drop down list in Photo|Edit|Print|Color Management, I see "Canon 6700 Glossy Lightroom", but I can't find it on either my C: or D: drives. I did a full search for all "*.IC*" files, and didn't find the "Canon 6700 Glossy Lightroom" string. Where does the Affinity drop down profile list come from and/or how do I get profiles into the list that aren't their now? Thanks for the help (and I think Affinity Photo is an excellent app...a real competitor for PS at a reasonable price).
  4. I have received from PermaJet a printer profile but their accompanying information deals only with Photoshop and I have so far failed to import said profile into Affinity Photo. PermaJet cannot help as they only have experience with Photoshop. From the AP print menu I can locate the printer profile box but how to I get the new permajet printer profile to figure amongst the options offered? I am totally incompetent in matters relating to computers and it may well be a simple operation but so far it has proved beyond me. Can you help please? mlplatt
