  1. In Photoshop we were supplied by our printer a paper simulation profile the form of a PSF file. This profile gives us an idea on how the colors will be represented printed on our paper color. Can Affinity Photo read PSF files? If so, where do I place these files so they show up in the soft proofing profile list? If these files can not be read, what kind of file do I need in order for Affinity Photo to read them. So far I have been unsuccessful in getting these files to load. Will I need my printer to supply me with an ICC profile that corresponds with the PSF profile settings?
  2. Hi all, I'm on a Windows 10, 64-bit machine and running Version 1.7.3.481 of Affinity Photo. The "Proof Profile" list in the Soft Proof adjustment continues to list icc files that have been deleted from C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\color. Here's a screen grab: You'll see that there is only one "PICTO_Lambda (...)" file in the color folder (...Satine_5.icc) in Windows Explorer, but there are three in the Proof Profile list in the Soft Proof adjustment (...Brillant_3.icc, ...Satine_3.icc and Satine_5.ICC (the extension presenting oddly in capital letters), this latt
  3. For the life of me I cannot figure out what I'm doing wrong with my printer profile. I am using Sawgrass Virtuoso 400 and I had been expecting to see it listed as a choice when using an adjustment layer for soft proofing. I had tried printing through the Sawgrass VPM but the colours are frustratingly wrong and I am totally out of ideas. As I am very green when it comes to these types of technical issues, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  4. MacBook Pro 15" 2018 model with Touch Bar, macOS 10.13.6, AFP 1.7.2 I was working either with a Levels or Curve adjustment layer attending to out-of-gamut areas of a soft proof when AFP crashed. I wasn't doing anything I haven't done many, many times before. Several other .afphoto files were open in the same session. Here is the crash log: Affinity Photo_2019-08-22-231523_RRL-MacBookPro15.crash .
  5. I am very confused about printing. It doesn't make sense. Is there a tutorial on printing basics for Affinity Photo. I am very proficient on Photoshop but am finding it difficult to find my icc paper or how to create a profile for a certain paper. some presets appear from my photoshop printing but I don't see my list of papers until I go to Soft Proof. If i select a paper there and then select "Add Preset", that preset doesn't appear anywhere that I can see. any help would be a big help. thanks C.
  6. I just updated to Affinity Photo 1.7. It seems that the option to check gamut in the Soft proof adjustment layer isn't working. In the previous version of Affinity Photo, when I imported a JPEG file created by DxO Photo Lab 2, added a Soft proof Adjustment Layer and configured it to use the profile for the Canon Pro 1000/500 Photo Paper Plus Glossy II, Absolute Colourimetric, Black Point Compensation and Gamut Check, large parts of the photo were displayed in grey and I had to add some adjustment layers to adjust out-of-gamut colors. In 1.7, no grey areas appear at all. Has something been
  7. Hello Affinity community! I'm using Affinity Photo 1.5.2.69 on Windows 10. The soft proof adjustment offers me the following options: select profile Rendering Intent Black point compensation Gamut Check Opacity Blend Mode Blend Options But where can I enable or disable "simulate paper color"? I can't find it. Thanks for your help!
  8. Hi all, the link to the original post can be found at the bottom of this posting. I am reposting here as I believe it is a bug and no one has taken an effort answering the original post in the questions and answers forum, so hoping to have more luck getting answers by posting in here instead. To summarise: There is a huge discrepancy in the soft proof results between Affinity Photo, Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom when using Relative Colorimetric, Perpetual or Saturation rending intents on the same images. The differences are so large that in my opinion seemingly Affinity Photo doesn't
  9. I have loaded the trial version of Photo and seem to have a problem with soft proof. As a test I exported some images from Capture 1 as PSD files. In Photo I add ( at the top ) a soft proof adjustment layer, select the canson Photo Lustre Premium RC profile. I can turn the layer on and off and there is no perceptible difference. With Capture 1 and Photo running concurrently on the same machine, same graphics card and same monitor I can switch between the Capture 1 image and the Photo image. Without soft proof on in Capture 1, the Capture 1 image seems to be the same as the image in Photo irres
  10. Hoping someone can shed some light on an apparent issue with Soft Proofing in Affinity Photo, but first a little background; I am looking to switch from Adobe products and Affinity Photo will be taking over the role Photoshop has played so far in my workflow, and so far so good. Then recently I was contacted by a client that wishes to purchase a print of one of my photos. This is the first time I am making a large size print for a client so I am doing this via a gallery print lab (I have done printing on my home printer before so I know the basics of Soft Proofing, however it’s a h
  11. Hi, I have the latest version of Affinity Photo running on a MacBook Pro 17" under macOS 10.12.6. When I use a Soft Proof adjustment layer to soft proof my edited photo before printing, I check the box to show the out-of-gamut areas. The tutorial leads me to believe they should be grey, but they seem to be black on my setup, and, depending on the photo, it takes a lot of playing around with the Curves adjustment to get rid of most of them. Is there a special meaning to black areas, as opposed to grey? While I'm at it: Where can I read up on curves, gamut, etc.? I've never used s
  12. Hi, I've got some problems using the soft proof adjustment layer in Affinity Photo. I am so far unable to replicate the behaviour of Adobe Lightroom (which worked pretty well). I've attached two images here showing the difference in results (left side LR, right side AP). Gammut check is totally off in AP and the shadows are way to bright in the preview. I'm using a color profile provided by the photo lab for their exposure unit and they specify exactly what settings to make for which of their products. In this specific case: Retain CMYK-numbers: n/a Retain RGB
  13. I'm puzzled about how I can use Adoramapix' icc profiles. I'm preparing grayscale images, originally medium format negatives scanned. Affinity assigns Grayscale D50. There doesn't seem to be a way to assign Adoramapix icc profiles to the documents, despite my having downloaded them from Adoramapix. Is my best option just to use the Adoramapix profiles to soft proof, and edit my work accordingly?
  14. Hello, Do you think you could tell me what "Soft Proof" is? I click on it and the default preset looks quite nice on the photo. Should I use it for just getting a certain look or is "Soft Proof" something else that I shouldn't touch? Thanks!
  15. System configuration: Affinity Photo 1.5.1.54 on Windows 10 with a wide gamut display. I have a ProPhoto RGB image and try to soft proof it in sRGB. The image contains highly saturated colors which are out of sRGB color space. I added a soft proof adjustment layer and selected sRGB IEC61966-2.1 as my proof profile (relative colorimetric, black point compensation). Nothing happened, colors on the screen didn't change. I tried the same with PS, LR and even Corel PP - all show similar color shift in proof. However, Gamut Check in Affinity Photo works properly, it marks almost identical color
