What you'll learn
- Use Affinity Photo to enhance images using proven techniques
- Know why they are doing things a certain way
- Be aware of the various 'gotchas' and problems that may arise
- Load Affinity Photo and not be overwhelmed by the amount of options
- No experience of image editing is needed
- Their own images

***Please note: This course covers Affinity Photo up to version 1.10. Version 2 has been released. The interface is almost identical but uses different graphics for the icons, and version 2 has new features. This course contains a wealth of tuition that is directly relevant to Affinity Photo 2, but was made using Affinity Photo 1. I recommend looking at the course sample videos when considering this course.***
Affinity Photo is the hottest image editing program for the Mac and Windows. It has many powerful tools for making your photos really shine. But you need to know how to use it, and how to get the best out of it.
This course has been designed with that in mind. With around 80 lectures and 13 hours of content, Affinity Photo: Solid Foundations takes you from complete beginner through to accomplished user. The major features of the regular updates up to 1.10 have been added for free to the course .
I study Udemy courses myself and it struck me how much time I spend making notes I can refer to. I estimate it increases my study time by a factor of at least 4. So I've made notes for you! The second lecture of this series has an extra resource - a downloadable 50+ page PDF with a table of contents plus an index. This PDF contains notes based directly upon the Affinity Photo courses I offer. Bullet points, screen shots, tips - they are all there and you can keep the PDF and refer to it whenever you want. This should save you dozens of hours of note taking.
I assume no knowledge on your part. All you need is a willingness to learn, and I'll take you though all the basics like getting the color and tone sorted. rotating and cropping, sharpening and reducing noise, selections, layer masks etc. Then we'll go on to more advanced topics like layer blend modes, vector art, text and painting. By the end of the course you will know how, when and why to enhance your photos, and really make them shine.
Who this course is for:
- People who want their images to look beter
- People who feel intimidated by the power of Affinity Photo
- Slightly more experienced folk who want a handle on this relatively new software
