colour distortion

Recommended Posts

My setup is a ipad pro, PC and intuos Pro.

I have been experimenting with Affinity Designer with intuos Pro on PC - 

Old method iPad pro and another (crashing) App - but great colour

The problem is the on screen colour on Affinity Designer is far paler and I don't really understand the settings enough to alter them - or even if I should 

i export from iPad PDF dropbox and visa versa

Hi @Sue Stitt,

Welcome to the forums. 

What ICC profile do you use for your document? 

Can you attach the .afdesign file in question?

Thanks,

Gabe. 

RGB 8

Adobe RGB(1998)

And what software do you use to preview them? If they are not colour managed, they will look different. 

As i haven't worked out Designer quite well enough yet I often put them in Illustrator on PC ( which wants to export as a AutocadDrawing(DWG)) or back in to ipad apps

What do you compare it to? An exported file? If so, can you attach it? 

How do you compare it?

Graphic App 

I compared by exporting to Graphic app my af. file on iPad and also from exporting as pdf my graphic file to affinity where it loses the colour.

if i export same file to Adobe illustrator it has good colour.

Also screenshot both as in the original pic I sent.

Perfect. Thanks. 

So, this is what happens. 

You have got a "generic RGB" icc profile embedded with your document, as a blending colour space, and a document profile standard srgb. 

For some reason, we pick up the blending ICC as the document ICC, and you get the wrong colours. To change this, go to Document Settings in Designer > Colour > Set colour profile to sRGB IEC6966-2.1, and set the mode to Assign rather than Convert. Hit Ok and you should be fine. 

I've logged this with our developers.
