Hi Jackamus,

If it is installed in your OS it should work be useable with Affinity.

Thanks

Is there a way to choose it or any other profile like in PhotoShop?

I'm not very good at this sort of thing so this is how I would like to see it work.

Everything I do is either viewed on the computer or I want to print it on my inkjet printer or send the file to a commercial printer.

To keep it simple what is the best way for me to set up my computer so that what I print resembles what I see on the screen?

I do have a customised colour profile for my Epson printer that I use in Phtoshop but even that seems to have gone awry. This may be due to the inks I use as I have swapped different kinds

I'm currently printing a full colour calendar sample for subsequent commercial printing but in order to get the colour right I'm manually adjusting the ink on my printer. I had to reduce the magenta from the default '0' to -16 (-24 is the min) to reduce the redness of the image.

Perhaps someone could me more specific advice?

Either you accidentally hit the correct color with manual corrections, or calibrate the printer. B is right :-)

I think I will find it easier to manually adjust the printer until I'm happy with the printed image compared to the monitor. I have a calibration colour chart on file so I will use that for comparing the adjustments although a colour photo might be easier to evaluate.
