luminosity blend mode producing color casts from layers

Recommended Posts

I have read many threads on this topic but cannot find what I am looking for. For example, in my architecture work I want to simply use layers in luminosity mode and brush in the luminance (brightness) of a window layer. This is quite common in PS and ON 1 Photo Raw.  However, when using this work flow on Affinity 1.7.3 the luminance (brightness) of the layer I am blending in actually produces the color of the layer and not the brightness. So for example if the window I am blending in has some yellow color cast the yellow appears in the blended layer instead of just a brightness. This is true for shadows that are blended in also. Can anyone tell me if I need to use a different blend mode to achieve brightness or shadows without a color cast or is there something additional needed in the luminosity blend mode to achieve brightness/shadows without a color cast.

Hey SpartaPhoto,

Could you provide the afphoto file and the exact steps you're doing?

I'm only guessing at what you're doing at the moment and that won't be sufficient enough to reproduce and log this with the developers. 

If you can provide a screenshot of your results in Photoshop too that would be brilliant! :) Thanks!
