Color distortion when importing DNG files

Recommended Posts

This happened before 1.7 update and still exists now. 

My basic workflow is as follows:

I edit the original files on PC with Lightroom, then export a DNG file for more adjustments in affinity photo. I upload the DNG to OneDrive, download it to iPad, open with affinity photo, and here is what I get. 

Whenever I’m using tiff files everything is fine. So I suppose there is a bug when importing DNG?

Thank you in advance.

I have just started having this problem. Importing DNG File on iPad and is pink. However my daughter has affinity on her MAC book and this opens fine. So this is a new problem.

I'm not sure I follow you on this. Sorry.

When you send the file from that app to Affinity, you send a RAW file and not the edited file. This colour change is expected as you cannot write back to a RAW file. What you see in that app is not what you send to Affinity.
