Lab Color Space is D65 not D50?

Recommended Posts

The preference panel of Affinity Designer shows only "D50" as an option for Lab colors. But comparing the sRGB comparison values to other tools (chromatist.js and Color Machine for Mac) the values I got are more comparable to the ones of a "D65" color profile (not exactly though).


Hex: #0b798f

LAB from Affinity (D50): 46, -23, -20

LAB from Chomatist (D65): 47,-20,-20

LAB from Chomatist (D50): 47,-21,-32


Hex: #872157

LAB from Affinity (D50): 32, 47, -6

LAB from Chomatist (D65): 32, 47, -7

LAB from Chomatist (D50): 32, 46, -16


Maybe someone can clarify this and/or figure out whether this is just an issue in Affinity.
