More comprehensive print dialogue.

Recommended Posts

Long time Photoshop user (since Photoshop 2.5) as part of being an art director/graphic designer and now just starting to get to grips with Affinity Photo.


On the Mac it would be great to have a much more comprehensive Print dialogue in Affinity Photo. The ability to select scaling either by dimensions (metric and imperial) as well as percentage, positioning on the paper size (not just wherever the printer driver sticks the image), paper type and also selecting the printer profile and rendering intent, including turning Black Point compensation on or off without going into the Preferences for Affinity Photo. This would need the option to disable colour management in the printer driver as it would be controlled by Affinity Photo. I still have to keep running an old version of Photoshop to do this.

I note that this very subject was discussed during the Beta stage of AP back in April 2015. I do understand that this is probably quite complicated to create but to me it makes extremely capable software stumble slightly at the print hurdle. There are some work-arounds regarding sizing and placement on the page but I'm never absolutely sure what Rendering Intent etc is actually being used by the printer driver.

(PS Serif, whatever you do, please never sell to Adobe!)
