B&W art changes color in Publisher


Recommended Posts

I am using Affinity Publisher 2.2.1 on Windows 10 system.

I have an RGB JPG which is most B&W art with some red, attached below.

When I place it in an Affinity Publisher file, the black becomes black and red. I have repeated this 5 times--updating, renaming, replacing, moving the file.

  • I have remade and renamed the JPG.
  • Rebooted Affinity Publisher.
  • Rebooted my system.
  • Moved the file to a new folder

The screenshot below is the fourth try.  I made a PDF from this page, and it too is red-black.

I think you have coloured the JPEG with red. Select the Layer and set the colour to "clear" .

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

Thank you for the suggestion.  But no combination of layers turns off the red.  It is baked into the image . . . and as I said above, I re-placed it 5 times.

Try this, change from the red colour in the centre (Top Layer On) to clear.
