Affinity Photo: Beginner to Pro via Reference and Workflow

via Udemy


Master Affinity Photo - the tools, the techniques and the methods!

What you'll learn:
  • - be able to develop and enhance their photos in Affinity Photo
  • - choose from a variety of different techniques to enhance their photos
  • - choose from a variety of different workflows to enhance their photos

***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.***

'I've learned some of the tools with Affinity Photo, but how do I actually enhance an image, start to finish?'

That was the question I saw asked on the Affinity Photo forums. And I thought:'Good point!' So here is a course designedwith justthat in mind. I'll take you through the development of a series of photos using a variety of workflows. We start with a simple workflow that's just right for beginners then move on to more advanced workflows as the course progresses.

But there's a problem. Learning the when and why of an effective workflow is all well and good. But if you have to learn the finer points of thetoolsat the same time, every tutorial will take forever and you may end up forgetting whether you are supposed to be learning a workflow or a tool. In short, it's hard to learn the tools when you're learning about the workflow and it's near impossible to learn about the workflow when you're learning about the tools.

So I've done both. This course is divided into two sections. You get hours of tutorials which cover various workflows and approachesto developing photos. But you also get a huge reference section which covers the various tools that Affinity Photo has to offer. If there's a tool I'm using in the workflow videos, there's a video explaining just that tool in the reference videos. Two ways to learn Affinity Photo. Reference and workflow.

*Update* - 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 third 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.

We'll take a series of photosthrough every step needed to bring themto a final, polished state. I'll take you through every stage and explain why we are doing things in a particular order. I've given you allthe images used on the courseto follow along with.I'll show you problems that can crop up and what do about them. I'll evenshow you how to use third partyplug ins from the Nik Collection to create incredible effects.

By the end of the course you will have seen and followed along withvarious effective workflows, start to finish. You will gain the confidence to tackle your own images, be able to select which workflow suits the photo best,and one day soon you may well be looking at one of your ownphotos which you've enhanced, and thinking 'That looks fantastic! I did that...'
