Color Management (set color profiles)

XD should be a color managed application.

I'm not sure what the full context of color management is within the UI/UX industry is, or if it's something that many pay attention to, or if it's just left un-managed.
Currently a vast majority of designers are using high gamut displays to design. Our final output will however differ greatly without some proper color management implemented. If color managment is implemented, we can at least visually soft proof our design and colors to specific devices (ie: New iOS devices that support P3 color gamut), or older sRGB devices.
At the same time sRGB images used won't expand to the display's high color gamut, making them look over saturated.

(Currently using Windows Beta Version: 0.6.8.6)

        This is a problem even when previewing colors on the mobile app. Really hope they add this feature soon!

        I just upvoted this and then got an email from yesterday (?) saying "An idea you supported has been closed" referencing the wrong ticket. I did not upvote any other feature. Anybody else?

        Ok, i have solve this problems.

        For MAC user, you can try change "Display profile" from System Preferences > Displays , you will see XD will be hold color and not depent system color. The perfect match display and XD color maybe in : "sRGB IEC61966-2.1" , you will see export color and color inside XD will be the same.

        In export, XD will be export raw image with correct color. But in displays, XD will be modified something for bright and high color gamut. So you should be change display profile in this case.

        Oversaturated colors in XD are a problem, i have to ad the saturation to images after export. Same with other colors.

        All of my colors are exporting as more dull than in XD. Can't stand it.

        I'd like to know Adobe's opinion to this. You really don't care it's not suitable for serious work?

        I'm working for branding projects with specific guidelines that can't be meet with XD. How come?

      • Bernie commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        All apps used to create digital work have the same concerns.

        Would like to see color management consistent across all Adobe apps. The engine used to manage profiles exists today in Bridge/Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign. Of course only the RGB profiles are relevant to XD. Perhaps XD could use that existing infrastructure?

        this needs updating asap, just went to export my file and colours are no where near as bright. have to show client the website tomorrow and the colours won't even be the ones i want... sort it out adobe.

        This needs to be addressed. We can not reproduce the colors we intend to use in the app. P3 color needed.

        Guys solve this trouble, add sRGB support, I have wide gamut monitor (eizo cx240) and it shows all colors exactly in wide gamut because the software doesnt have a color managment support!
