White Swatches save as grey

Recommended Posts

When I use the default white swatch or create one myself and save it, instead of H:0 S:100 L:100 (which appears as pure white), it saves as H:0 S:0 L:100 (which appears as off white).

Step 1a: Click default white swatch or select H:0 S:100 L:100 on color wheel and save swatch.

Step 1b: If user created swatch, select swatch user created.

Step 2: Observe swatch is recalled as H:0 S:0 L:100 instead of H:0 S:100 L:100.

Hi MrFlow,

What colour profile and mode are you using? I've tried myself and both HSL:0,100,100 and 0,0,100 both look the same. I've also colour picked your screenshot and they both show as RGB:255,255,255.


As for the swatch values, the White swatch in the Grey palette has a value of HSL:0,0,100 which is why you are getting that value from that swatch. However creating a swatch of HSL:0,100,100 and saving that to a new palette is correctly recalling that as HSL:0,100,100.

Hey Sean P,

I have attached my color profile specs below.

Thank you for the quick reply! I actually discovered the issue when I created the swatch for a user-created palette. Which is where the problem occurred and I was able to test and duplicate the issue in the Grey palette.

Also attached, I saved a swatch of HSL:0,100,100 of my JDR palette. It is recalled as H:0 S:0 L:100 100% of the time. Both white swatches in the palette recall as H:0 S:0 L:100.

My version is 1.6.0. The app store shows that all updates have been made. I also have attached my system info.

My expectation is that I get HSL:0,100,100 that was saved when creating the swatch and not H:0 S:0 L:100.

How I'm verifying this is by saving the swatch (HSL:0,100,100), changing to a different color, going back to the saved swatch and then checking the color picker which shows H:0 S:0 L:100. I Also export the images and in fact the image color does lose saturation.
