Hey there community and Affinity devs,


some time ago I asked the developers via Facebook if there's an option to keep the adjustment presets like gradient maps,

imported and saved LUT files, levels, curves – pretty much everything in the "Adjustment"-palette/tab that you may have

generated and saved there over time.


Back then (August 2015) you would need to save them separately, because you'd loose them with the next update – at least
that's what happened to me twice – after that I was more cautious about those files. :D


Anyway, I got a pretty helpful response: I was told there's a file called adjustments.propcol in the directory

/Users/<USERNAME>/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinityphoto/Data/Library/Application Support/user/

and it would contain all of my adjustments – and it's true! You can save that file and put it back there after each update to

preserve your custom presets. Tough I guess it's been solved since a few updated ago because I haven't done it after a couple of times.




Last year I purchased the Win-version of Affinity Photo as well and just now I'm starting to wonder:

How to transfer adjustment presets from one system (Mac) to another (Win) and is this possible in the first place?


So if anyone knows the answer or a workaround that doesn't involve loading everything manually I'd be pretty thankful. ;)

To copy your adjustment preset from your Mac to your Windows PC please do the following


On your Mac copy the adjustments.propcol from the directory /Users/<USERNAME>/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinityphoto/Data/Library/Application Support/user/ to a memory stick, external hard drive or cloud storage


On your Windows PC run the command %appdata%  then in the File Explorer window that appears browse to the location Affinity\Photo\1.0\user


From the location that you saved the Mac adjustments.propcol file to copy it and then paste the file into the Windows folder location replacing the existing file there.
