If you want to improve your Photos but you have no idea where to start, then this is the course for you! Aimed squarely at the first time user, this course takes you through the five steps you will go through again and again when you improve your images. Using Affinity Photo, I'll explain what those steps are, how to use the right tool for the job, and also why you do things in a certain order. We'll even practice the steps with a series of images that I provide. You don't need to know every tool in an image editing program. But you do need to know just a few steps to take things to a new level. I'll take you through those steps one by one, and I'll help you make your photos shine!
