Avoid any color profile

Recommended Posts

Hello !

I've bought a new laptop and created my own color profile so that screen looks more neutral than with the default sRGB profile. However I would like this profile to be applied only for the screen and not for any Affinity Photo documents.

Unfortunately I tried all the options in the Colors preferences, I can't find a way for Affinity Photo to just ignore the screen profile and display the standard RVB colors. Attached to this post is a sample of the greyscale palette which doesn't look greyscale at all.

If is set the color profile as "sRGB IEC61966-2.1" (relative render) I get this result. If I set the color profile matching Windows' color profile, it's even worse (as if the profile was applied twice).

In order to get the correct colors back, I have to set both Windows and Photo as "sRGB IEC61966-2.1", but the screen looks blueish (as all other laptop screens). I general I don't use color profiles and change the color levels directly on the Graphic Card's configuration - but this time I can't and have to use a profile.
I can eventually set Windows colors back to my custom profile while Affinity Photo is still opened - it does the trick but at any random time it switches to the wrong colors again.

Would there be any way to prevent Affinity Photo from using any color space and just stick with the RVB defaults ?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Alright, great news ! I finally found a way to alter the screen colors without using any profile. On Surface Book devices, it's not the graphic card nVidia which handle the colors, it's the integrated graphics from Intel. Thus you just have to install the Intel Graphics app from the Windows store : https://www.microsoft.com/store/productId/9PLFNLNT3G5G

Thanks again for the help !
