Colors changes when exporting to pdf

Recommended Posts

I am new to Affinity Designer and am working on a laptop with Windows.  I have created a design and when I export it to pdf, the colors appear considerably different. How do I resolve this issue?

Thank you

Can you please provide more information on the colour profile that you are using with your document and the export settings you are using for the PDF export

I am using the CMYK colour profile on my document and for the export settings I am using the Preset PDF for Print(CMYK), Raster DPI:300, Area: Whole Document, Downsample images: Above DPI 450, Use DPI: 300, Allow JPEG compression Quality: 85, Compatability:PDF 1.7(Acrobat 8), Color Space: CMYK, ICC Profile: Use document profile, and Embed ICC profile.  Please let me know if you need anymore information from me.

Ok, I may have figured out my issue.  I am using two monitors.  When I view the image on my second freestanding monitor, the color is off.  But I just moved it onto my laptop screen adjacent to my image in Affinity and it is spot on.  And I just printed it out and it is correct on the print.  

Sorry to waste your time, but it seems my old monitor is the culprit this time.  Do you recommend I still use the preset you recommended in the future?
