Export does not consider right ICC profile

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I usually solely work with sRGB IEC61966-2.1 but unfortunately the exports looked like crap, so I tried every installed ICC profile and realised that the profile that the exported picture looks alike is the Samsung Natural Color Pro. I thus checked all the settings, converted the ICC to sRGB again, set it manually in the exporter but it still didnt work - it kept exporting with the Samsung profile.

 

In the end the only solution I could find was to convert to the Samsung profile and, additionally, set it manually in the exporter instead of using document profile. This does not seem to be a solution on the long term.

 

Maybe someone else has made similar experiences and can confirm this bug.

 

Many thanks!

Hi nikor,

 

I've just exported a few images out to jpegs/tiffs with document profile set to something non standard, and export settings set to use the document profile for the ICC colour profile, it seems to correctly embed the profile specified in document setup.

 

Can I clarify that you are seeing the correct colour profile name output, but you believe the colours are incorrect within that profile?

 

Thanks

Hi Jon P,

 

the thing is that the exported image has a different color scheme as it had in affinity, even though I exported it with the same profile as I used in affinity to display it.

Do you get what I mean?

 

The pictures usually should be in SRGB IEC61966-2.1, which is also what affinity tells me. The only workaround is to use Document -> Convert ICC -> Samsung profile and then export it (in the case it works fine, even though its displayed differently in IrfanView and the Windows Viewer unless I uncheck that the profile is being included in the export).

 

Let me see if I can upload a sample affinity file with the export, and a screenshot as comparison.

 

Best wishes,

Nikor
