While it's cold, wet and lockdown I've made it my mission to learn how to use Affinity Photo which I have had for over a year.

I've watched loads of utube videos and now I've bought the official manual which is helping a lot - it does some pretty amazing things, I just need to remember now how to do them!
how usseful is the official manual?? The cost puts me off!! YOu did briiliantly with this!

Love the tulips!

Oh, I am thinking about getting Affinity, as soon as I get some time to focus on it. What did you use until now? Did you use photoshop?

Well you have done this one well, beautiful colours!

Very pretty

lovely edit!

Love how the tulips come alive in shot two

good luck - doing it over and over is the key whatever system you use!

I have also had Affinity for some time, but use only a few of it's features. I never seem to make time to work through the book of tutorials that I've also bought. Compared with DXO I find the RAW converter hard work.

Very nice

A nice before & after!

Wow what a difference.

I admire your goal...I hope to learn some more editing skills this year, but some days its hard just to find time to take pictures. Love the comparison images.

@30pics4jackiesdiamond I am finding the manual useful as I can go over the steps several times to drum it in, then move on slowly. I have watched and use utube to experiment but need to learn in a methodical manner so I remember each step.

@cherrymartina I was only using apps on my phone to edit so it's a new world for me. I must admit though that when I have watched Photoshop videos it seems very similar - and is 50% off at the moment, so a real bargain!

@amyk I'm finding it hard to get out and take pics at mo due to the lousy weather and lockdown restrictions so I am using old photos to practice on. Great fun 😁

@bob65 I haven't used dxo and didn't want to spend a fortune on an editing package so opted for affinity- and so far I'm very impressed!

@lynnz @happypat @moviegal1 @jernst1779 @busylady @anniesue @bkbinthecity @carole_sandford @onewing @joansmor thank you, I am enjoying learning and have lots to learn, but practice makes perfect as they say! Now just need lockdown to disappear so can get out to take raw images to practice with 🤞

I've seen the word Affinity mentioned on here quite a bit although I had no idea what it was. Now I see its the new photoshop and its half price. Maybe I should start processing my photos????

@lyndamcg thank you. I cannot get my head around masking!! Perhaps I should invest!! I'm enjoying affinity s bit more these days
January 22nd, 2021  
Such a great difference.
Well done!
January 22nd, 2021  
@kjarn yes, I bought it as didn't want to pay monthly and it is half price at the moment and I think it may be equally as good 😁

@farmreporter thank you

I’m new to editing but I’d heard good things about Affinity and with the 50% off I’ve just bought it! Looking at it this week I realise I’ve got so much to learn and I’ve got myself all confused! But I’ll keep persevering as I need to learn some basic editing to improve my photos. Your photos today show me that it can be done 😊

@lyndamcg Have fun Lynda editing your photos. I will probably get Affinity as soon as I find some extra time... In the mean time I'll enyoj your progress...
