Exporting PSD from Affinity Photo- Adjustment Layer bug?

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to export a file as a psd to submit for my hand in at uni, but the colours come out drastically different in photoshop. I've tried different options within the exporting menu, but they all seem to yield the same result.

I have uploaded the afphoto file and the psd file for comparison. 

Please help, I need to hand this in on Friday!

Hi Vimaleon,

Welcome to the forums :)

I can see your design contains a Colour Balance Adjustment, when exporting to PSD the same values are kept, however Affinity's & Photoshop's Colour Adjustments aren't exactly the same, meaning unless these adjustments are rasterised (either before or during export) then your image may appear slightly differently in PS. This has been raised with our developers previously and it's been marked as working as intended.

Could you expand on the issues you're still having? I've opened your document side-by-side on my PC and the files appear similar, with the colour picker finding similar values between the two images.

Hmm, not sure what you're looking at there in affinity, perhaps you've just opened the psd in affinity?

It looks like this on my side, in affinity, but like what you're seeing in photoshop.

Doh! Perhaps I should have thought that before posting it... :$

I'll have to take a further dive into your file, it appears to be due to the Overlay blend modes set to certain pixel layers within groups but I'm going to need a little longer to confirm this and try to find a workaround for your document, please bare with me!

I think it would be best if you kept your clothes on. O.o
