  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. hello: is possible Display the color space in the top of the document in both programs (like photoshop)?
  3. Hi, I have to convert my pictures to a cmyk profile for professional printing. I have received a specific (custom?) ".csf" file to process my files in Photoshop (please, see scs) from my professional "printing house". I would have liked to do this step in APhoto but I do not know how to setup a custom cmyk profile. Is it possible ? I see the same problem in APublisher and moreover, I do not find a way to export in pdf with the option to not assign again a profile to pictures. Anyway, since APub is still in beta phase, I am working with (and learning) QXP2018 but I would like to know how to proceed in APub. Thank you for any advice Patrick
  4. Is there a way to copy a color value of an object to the clipboard for pasting in an CSS file, for example? I need to apply various RGBA values (RGB with alpha/transparency) and am tired of manually typing them for every object. OK, I just found the dropdown in the color panel where you can copy the currently selected color value as HEX. That might be useful sometimes but doesn’t help me in this case. Firstly, I need RGB(A), and secondly the color is applied as color overlay effect, not as standard background color. So, I wish I could just open any color panel and there would be a similar menu as in the color panel to copy a value in different variants.
  5. I am currently testing Photo right now as a viable replacement for Photoshop, after 24 years. Since I do game development, there is a very necessary feature that I need to use and can't find it in AP. In order to do some special texture creation, I would need to be able to turn RGB visibility on and off individually per layer or layer group. In Photoshop, in a layer's properties, you can turn off Green and Blue, for example, and have only the Red channel show for that layer (or layer group). Then, in another channel, only show the Green channel. In this way, texture maps can be created for use in 3D programs like 3ds Max, and in games for things like specular effects and normal maps for bumps. Also, I don't see a way to make adjustments to levels on a specific channel by selecting it and making the changes. I need to be able to see the grayscale of each channel as I'm tweaking it. This is especially important in specular and normal map creation for games. Hopefully, someone here has worked in game dev and knows what I am referring to. If I cannot control the RGB visibility and adjustments in layers and groups, then Affinity Photo will not work for what I am doing. I truly hope it's in there, and I just don't see it, or that maybe it's in the works for the next version. Thanks.
  6. Hi to all, I would like to suggest an RGB indicator for the histogram in Affinity Photo, notably in the Photo Persona, but it would of course be good to have it in all the Personas. I've attached an image below showing the RGB indicator in RawTherapee as an example; it's the bar underneath the histogram, indicating where the R, G, B and luminance values of the hovered-over pixel fall in the histogram. I took this screen shot with my mouse positioned over the band of trees in the image. I find this indicator to be extremely useful, especially as a quick way of verifying details in very deep shadows or very bright highlights. It lets you see instantly, for example, if all channels are blown out, or if you have just one channel blown out with others still contributing detail. Seeing the position of the pixel value in the histogram is, at least for me, much more informative than the simple number given by the Info box. Thanks! KE
  7. The edit swatch pop-up pallete shows sliders and samples in RGB when in CMYK mode. The regular color pallete works fine.
  8. I'm working on a web design, and I am trying to make a custom navbar menu icon to use in my navbar. The color I am using is CSS3 SteelBlue RGB(70,130,180). I used the sliders to set my color, but on export to jpeg (using Lanczos 3 (non-separable)) my color turns into RGB(84,129,176) and no longer matches my navbar. What settings do I need to use to keep my RGB values consistent. And for those wondering, I am using Photo and not a different program.
  9. Hi.. I use this document setup: type: print (press ready) color format: cmyk/8 color profile: U. S. web coated (SWOP) v2 But I have some issues, when I choose the color on the box, and I pick that color with "color picker tool" to coloring another object, the result is totally different, only cmyk code is the same. Yes I can just copy the #xxxxxx code to coloring another object, but I want to use that color picker tool because it's simple. And the client usually use AI to open eps file, I tried to export my files from affinity to eps file, and open it in AI, and yes the color code is changing, I'm confused :p Please help me to solve this issues. Thank you for your attention :)
  10. Hi, what is the best way to convert rgb images to cmyk for print with Affinity Photo? Thanks
  11. Today I had a lot of crashes when changing the ICC profile. I didn't experience such crashes in the past. I think all the files today had no embedded profile and got my eciRGBv2-workprofile assigned on opening. When changing that to sRGB via conversion or assigning – affinity photo crashed.
  12. This may be a very silly question. Is there a way to automatically convert a vector image created with rgb colours into CMYK without having to select each individual colour and changing it manually? No I don't want to convert it when saving it but to action it on the page.
  13. hello, new here. I read some topics on conversion from rgb to cmyk but still in doubt... I have done some illustrations for a children book in affinity designer, with ,for some, backgrounds with gradients, text on a path. all in rgb. First time I am working in vectors. The infographist who is assembling everything for the printer ask me to convert to cmyk. I did, reworked the colours that were different and very dulled. when converting I choose, print (press-ready), 300 dpi, cmyk-8 (us web coated swop)V2, transparent background and checked " assign" He asked for a EPS file. When he opened the file, a warning appeared saying that some elements were still in rgb. Did I missed something? I have multi layers with vectors , should I merge them? Apparently, text on a path can be a problem as gradiant, some are from full colour to transparent. thank you very much for your help Benedicte

    Colour wheel (moved from requests)

    Hello forum! I designed a new logo for our company, and ran into some issues with colour rendition, as I supplied the colours to our local newspapers for print. Designer is only accurate for CMYK rendition, and no other codes are even close! You can see from the screenshot the colour codes for this blue. Note that the HSL doesn't match from the colour wheel open, to that of the wheel above and to the right. Here are 3 websites that all agree almost exactly with HEX, CMYK, RGB and HSL; again note that the CMYK code in Designer is correct! http://www.colorem.net/en/?huein=&satin=&lightin=&cin=&min=&jin=&nin=&redin=&greenin=&bluein=&hexin=000a7d&format= https://www.colorhexa.com/000a7d https://www.w3schools.com/colors/colors_cmyk.asp?color=cmyk(1, 0.25, 0, 0) I have made all of the necessary adjustments for my printing and display purposes, so I post this to help make good software better! Cheers, Louis
  15. Hey guys, yes i know something similar has been asked before but all the other posts I have seen didn't answer my question. I understand that converting RGB to CMYK withhout color differences won't always be possible since the color garmut of RGB is a lot bigger than the one for CMYK. What I don't understand is: If i try to do it the other way (CMYK to RGB) shouldn't it be possible to get the same color in RGB as I have in CMYK? Maybe you can also tell me how you handle it if your client needs a logo in RGB and in CMYK colors and wants them to be similar. Thanks a lot in advance can't wait to hear your replies.

  16. Dear Affinity-Community, I hope you can help me in this case ! I created a flyer using Affinity Designer. Colors are CMYK (ISO Coated v2 300% (ECI)). For this flyer I have approx. 50 photos of leather watch straps, where the color is one of the most important things. I edited these photos in Photoshop CC and they really looked fine in PS CC (also CMYK !). The colors are very rich and deep if you are looking at the photos in Photoshop CC. Then I exported the photos from Photoshop and saved them as PNG (CMYK / ISO Coated v2 300% (ECI)). Also the image looked fine when I opened it at the preview on the iMac. But as soon as I import this image to Affinity Designer, the colors are very very pale ! I hope you can help me get this problem under control. Thank you in advance ! Best regards Lucas
  17. Hi all, im new here and this is my frist thread here at the affinity forum. I hope it wrote it in the right topic. So here is my first question: I just made an DIN A5 Flyer (2-sided) in Affinity Designer (Artboard). I then exported the file as PDF/X3 for the printing house and made a test-print at home. In the test-print i saw that there are some errors in the picture. These errors were imported RGB-files, that aren't converted into CMYK color space while importing. As i come from Adobe Illustrator, there is an automatic message if you import files that are in another color-space and you then have the opportunity to automatically convert the imported picture to the document color-space. Is this not possible with ADesigner? Next is, that the error was not recognizable at the monitor, only at the printout! Can anyone tell me how to configure ADesigner that this error cannot happen anymore? (before upcoming questions: the monitor has a 99%sRGB color space and is calibrated) Picture 1 shows the pdf as it is shown at the monitor Picture 2 shows the error on the printout
  18. I have not been able to find any information in help files or video tutorials of how to make a composite image from separate RGB layers. I've done this in PS but can't seem to find a way to do this with affinity. I've imported my RGB Astronomy images into a layered RGB image and filled each layer with color in the channels section. I just cannot figure out to whit's end how to combine them into a composite so I can finish processing the images. Flatten or merge don't seem to work. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
  19. I've been using Affinity Designer for quite a while now, but this is a first today. I have the color chooser open and I am working in 2 separate documents that look the same, but are different size. I copy and past the EXACT same RGB color code into both documents and they are 2 completely different colors. On one document its a bright green, they other a dull green. This is the first time I've had this happen. It's extremely difficult to know what color this will appear as on my website. Any idea why this is happening? Thank you
  20. Hi, When using Curves Adjustment layer and selecting LAB color space for the curves adjustment for an image in RGB space, the histogram shown behind the curve is incorrect. It still shows the RGB channel histograms behind, such that Lightness curve has the Red channel histogram, AOpponent has the Green channel histogram, and BOpponent has the Blue channel histogram. This is very misleading and even worse than not having a histogram. The same happens for CMYK curves.
  21. Pre Export: Post Export: You probably get the Problem I've checked all settings and still don't get where the problem could possibly be..
  22. I have taken some raw pictures with my Nikon D5300 camera using adobeRGB format. When I import them to affinity photo (AP), first I do nothing to change the color profile and edit them as if they were sRGB, then I try and export them as jpegs using the embed ICC profile sRGB. But when i open this file in another program it says that it is a adobeRGB color profile, and I can see that the color does not match. Then I go back to AP and change the assign a adobeRGB profile to the picture and I get somthing that is similler to the export. I then choose to convert to the sRGB profile, and then do my andjustment, and export to jpeg using the embed ICC profile sRGB. However it still seems that the profiled red by the external program is adobeRGB, and the convertion has not made much difference. There is still a discrepancy between what i see in AP and what I see in the external photo viewer. I do not know if I am doing somthing wrong or if there is a bug with export, in that the ICC profile from the raw file is still included?
  23. Hi, i got massive troubles when using CMYK mode on a monitor with extended range! 100 / 100 CMYK red looks like a full unmanaged RGB red. i´m using a eizo CG243W and a Dell u2413 both with extended color range. seems designer isnt able to display real CMYK values. so it is far away from a professional print solution. here´s another bug which describes the problem really well. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/29146-cmyk-sliders-up-to-255/?p=141917 the real funny thing. red isnt red, that means on my monitors a 255RGB red occurs in 2 color versions..... so far, let´s see if i get any reaction in here. regards from austria, florian
  24. What are the quality & usage purpose differences between exporting an image via document format & 8bit rgb? They both appear to be jpgs. I'm uploading to an image site I sell my work on - thanks! Adan
