Dual monitor color profile

Recommended Posts

OSX El Capitan




1. Have two color corrected screens, each with it's proper profile assigned.

2. Go to settings and give monitor 1 the menu bar - making it the main monitor.

3. Launch Affinity Photo.

4. Open a photo document ( in my case I used a document with Adobe RGB color space )

5. If on the main monitor, the colors will be accurate.

6. Move the entire AP interface over to monitor two - or create a new view, separate the interface and move view 2 to monitor 2.

7. The color on monitor 2 view is wrong. It still uses monitor 1's color profile.

8. Quit affinity photo.

9. Go back to settings - make monitor 2 the main monitor by moving over the menu bar.

10. Repeat steps 3 through 7. The same thing happens but with the monitor's reversed. 


Basically, the main's monitor color profile is the only one being used.


Thank you.
