Colors not same in document and in colour chooser?

Recommended Posts

I have noticed, after my last update, that colors in chooser and in document are not the same. Colors in chooser are dull and brownish,. but in document they are right. As you can see in image.

I created my own ICC-file to get colors right in document. I assigned this ICC to documents and to AP. But it seems to me that Afiinity Photo, for some unknown reasons, cannot use it in chooser.

What to do??

Hi Nicolai,

do not use any self created profiles assigned to documents. Always use the pre-defined profiles for documents.

Affinity does not support Camera Profiles for documents.

What could make sense is to calibrate your monitor (to achieve sRGB, AobeRGB, P3 etc) and assign this profile to the monitor. But never assign it to a document. Then assign the matching default profile to your document (but not a self-generated calibration profile).
