  1. Hi Andreas, I never say never but there are so many pressing things to attend to over the next 'x' amount of months...
  2. Hi Anothermike, I'm looking at the Designer 2.0 now to see what I need to do to update the existing courses. The interface seems to be basically the same but with new graphics, and of course the new features will be added. So I would say 'I think so' but I'll know more when I dive into the updating of the course. Hope that helps.
  3. Hi everyone, I wanted to let existing customers know that I have unpublished all of my Affinity Photo for the desktop and iPad courses at Udemy. Today's release of version 2.0 is a very exciting time! But I had promised myself that if the interface and features change beyond a certain point, I'd stop updating the existing courses and start again. Any existing enrolees will still be able to access the courses and ask questions, but they should not be appearing in the Udemy search engine - basically, I don't want new people coming to my courses and being confused/disappointed that what they are looking at is not what I am showing. It would have been nice to have a new course in place ready for the 2.0 launch. But even if I was on the beta team, I don't release tutorials based off beta versions. I will be starting the Affinity Photo 2.x Solid Foundations course as soon as possible. Thanks for your time, Simon *4th Dec Update* - I found that I couldn't communicate with any enrolees on unpublished courses. So I've had to republish so I can inform people about updates/special offers. But I'm pressing on with updating courses before I continue with the new AP 2.x course.
  4. Hi Walt, how's things? Here you go - https://theeagerlearner.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/BlendModes01.pdf
  5. Hi Jim, I don't use Apple Photos. I import any files via iCloud, which I notice you have from your screenshots. I've just opened a Fuji RAW file that way to double check & it opens just fine. So maybe try that method? Hope that helps, Simon
  6. Hi Pedrober. I'm sorry to hear you had problems contacting me. Would you happen to remember which email you used? At any rate, let's try & get you sorted out. I've pm'ed you. Simon
  7. Hi everyone Just to left you know I've combined the Pen Tool videos from my Affinity Designer course into one half hour video and posted it on YouTube as a free resource. Hope it helps some people - The Affinity Designer big BIG guide to the Pen Tool Cheers, Simon
  8. Thank you to both of you very much! You've both helped me out in more ways than one... Simon
  9. Hi, I have a curious problem with Affinity Designer for the iPad. I spend some time drawing out and editing shapes on a file then quit Designer. When I come back a day later and open Designer I find that most of the work I've done has been saved apart from the last few things I did. I've checked the History studio and it bears out what I see on my screen. The last few things I did were not there when I came back to my work. The work is dragging out and editing simple shapes, using the round corners tool, duplicating shapes and creating groups. The problem has happened fairly consistently although the amount of objects created and edited seems to vary. The worst case was when I created 5 simple rectangles to test how many would be there when I opened Designer after a day. None were there when I opened the file, but also I found that a group I'd duplicated and moved wasn't there and a shape I'd duplicated & moved, flipped horizontally and changed the color had only been duplicated and moved. The flip horizontal command I'd given from the transform studio hadn't been recorded or anything after that. I've tried making a snapshot from the History studio to see if that makes a difference. I was also wondering about how I quit Designer. Normally I just swipe up from the bottom of the screen. Would going back to the Gallery before I quit make a difference? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  10. Hi ydatak. I run a promotional sale at least once a month, usually towards the end in which all the prices come down to around £10-15 for about 5 days. Cheers, Simon Foster
  11. Hi Mark. Based on what you've said I'd go for Affinity Designer first then learn more about photo editing after. Simon
  12. Ok, the new sale is now on. For any Serif course I offer at Udemy just enter APR2020 in the Apply Coupon field to get the courses at the reduced price of $10.99/$9.99, depending on the course.
