My colors are off when I copy/paste on a new document

Recommended Posts

Hello !

 

Obviously I am a newbie :unsure: , but I can't figure that problem out. It started couple days ago and I have no idea why or how. When I copy and paste an object on a new document the colors of that object is changing and I can't find out how to fix it.

I tried to change the RGB hex code ect. same problem it is never the same color.

 

HELP ME PLEASE !!!

Is it that one of your documents is RGB format and the other is CMYK format (you can still use the RGB colour picker in a CMYK document)?

 

Colour Format can be seen under the Document menu.

 

Hope I've understood you correctly.

It may be that the two documents have different ICC color profiles. If so, they may look different in the app even if the RGB color codes are the same.

If it is any consolation to you, I feel considerably more than a little stupid just about every time I try to figure out something new or unexpected in Affinity!  :lol:

Hi,

 

I noticed the same today. I think something should be done there.

 

My problem was that I placed a CMYK picture into a RGB document. Then copy pasted that picture in the same document and affinity designer fittet it to the RGB colors / or removed the original profile?

 

I think Affinity Designer / Photo should be clearer about different color profiles / modes and show some warnings. Or the placed image should be converted to the document profile directly - with a notice. Pretty confusing. ... I hate that color stuff ...
