Developing a RAW image means taking your photos to the next level. Developing it with Affinity Photo means access to all the powerful tools Serif have given us.

Aimed at newcomers to RAW processing, this course, with over 3.5 hours of content, gives you the knowledge you need to take your photos to the next level. Theory, explanation of all the major tools, and 10 extra develop videos (with the RAW files supplied to you for practice) that take you though different workflows.
