Placing/importing PNG file - colours are very different

Recommended Posts



When I place a screenshot PNG image directly onto my canvas, the colours are completely warped as if there is a filter on it (e.g. greens turn blue, reds turn brown, blue turns pink). I have got around this, by importing the PNG image into Photoshop, exporting it as a PNG file, then re-importing/placing it into Affinity Designer.  Thank you for any thoughts on the matter.

Welcome to the forums Aikiko :)


Are you saving the screenshot first or pasting directly from the clipboard?


I'm not seeing this issue in AD or AP when using SHIFT + CTRL + CMD + 3 or SHIFT + CMD + 3 to take the screenshot. How are you taking the screenshot?
