  1. Hi everyone. Sorry to come late to this thread. I've just updated the Solid Foundations Text video that was originally mentioned so that the screen is zoomed out to full. Now you can see the Convert to Curves button when it is pressed.
  2. Hi AnnH. I have no plans to do so at the moment because it takes time to create the document and I for the amount of explanation needed to make things clear would mean it would turn out to be a fairly sizeable book. But I've just started a new something which, if it pans out like I want it, could go some way towards making you happy. Cheers, Simon
  3. Hi It's Simon here from the Udemy courses about Affinity Photo. I wanted to let you know that I have created a .pdf which summarises the various subjects I talk about in the videos and it's now available for Affinity Photo: Solid Foundations and Affinity Photo: Beginner to Pro via Reference and Workflow. I did this because I regularly do video courses myself and I know how long it takes me to make notes. For me it increases my learning time by at least a factor of 4. So I thought it would be a good idea to save you a lot of time and do it myself. The course price isn't affected by this. I just wanted to make it a bit better for people. Thanks for your time, Simon
  4. Hi everyone, Affinity Photo 101: The Fundamental Five Steps will be available for free on Christmas day and Boxing day. The link is for the US store but I'm sure there will be a little gizmo asking if you want to view the book in the country where you live. Don't forget that the book contains a coupon which allows you to get this course - Affinity Photo: Five Steps to Better Photos for free, because the book and the video series cover the same processes but with different photos. It also contains coupons which give heavy discounts on most of my other video courses over at Udemy. If you do take advantage of the offer and you like the book, a review on Amazon could really help get the book noticed. But only if you can spare a couple of minutes. thanks for your time and a happy holidays to you all Simon
  5. Moss! I have to use the pronunciation that the majority are comfortable with! As it is I'm starting to use US spelling out of habit ('colorization') and resist the temptation to say things like 'Jolly good, old chap/rather spiffing don'tcha know?' in my lectures. It's not easy bringing enlightenment to the grateful world. But I rather fancy my ego will see me though...
  6. Thanks RobNJ! Oh, by the way, I've just posted 2 new chapters as an update of the book so that now it covers curves, along with a practice chapter where we develop 3 photos from start to finish so you can see the workflow.
  7. Hi everyone, The pdf I created about a year ago is now available on the Amazon Kindle store - Affinity Photo 101: The Fundamental Five Steps on an introductory pricing. One thing you should know is that it contains a coupon which allows you to get this course - Affinity Photo: Five Steps to Better Photos for free, because the book and the video series cover the same processes but with different photos. Oh, and it also contains coupons which give heavy discounts on most of my other video courses over at Udemy. ... and here's the other nice thing. The book will be free for one day - Saturday 1st December. So you can get the free book plus a free video course. If you do take advantage of the offer and you like the book, a review on Amazon could really help get the book noticed. But only if you can spare a couple of minutes. thanks for your time Simon
  8. Hi Everyone, So, you want to enhance your photos but you're in a hurry? Aren't we all! So my new course, Affinity Photo: The Fast Guide is designed especially for you. It’s a brand new course, so here’s your new course coupon - AFFINITY_FAST . Apply the coupon to get the course for a massive discount. This coupon lasts until the end of November 30th. Everything you need and nothing you don't, all in one 3.5 hour course that gives you pro level techniques in record time. What's more, I provide you with a PDF containing summaries of all the lessons, along with screenshots to help. So you don't even have to make notes because I've done it for you! Well actually, there's two PDF files. The main one contains bullet points of the main points covered in all the lessons, complete with an index so you can search for a particular word or tool. In addition, I'm also including a PDF all about the different layer blend modes available in Affinity Photo complete with descriptions plus a screen shot for every mode so you can really nail down your knowledge. This course has been designed to fit in with various other Affinity Photo courses I offer here at Udemy so you if you want to further your knowledge after this course, I've got you covered. This course may be for people in a hurry. But I still bring the same philosophy to this course as I do to all my courses. Knowing what a tool does is not enough. You have to know why and when to use it. That way you gain skills as well as knowledge. I'll give you both in record time. So click on the link above and enrol today. Professional instruction, delivered in record time! Thanks for your time, Simon
  9. Hi everyone Just a quick note to say that I've finally managed to edit the auto generated captions and now they actually make sense. So now the course has subtitles that work.
  10. Hi Anne. I do think nowadays that many people nowadays prefer video as a tutorial format because it's very visual and most closely emulates the feeling of sitting next to someone who is using the software. But that's not to ignore books as a valid format. I think things like Photoshop have more books out because it's a much older & more established product. I remember when the only tuition you could get for Photoshop was in book format. Then broadband came along and... The .pdf I wrote was as originally intended a prelude to writing an expanded version and made as a commercial offering. But Serif bought out their book & so I though it best to hold off working on that idea for now since I thought it would make sense that people prefer an offering from the developers rather than and independent like me. But it's not something I've shelved permanently.
  11. Hi AnnH. Just in case you don't have it, I do have a downloadable .pdf on my website here https://theeagerlearner.com/ which is around 95 pages covering the basics of Affinity Photo.
  12. Hi LenC. Maybe if we keep any discussion on the public forum others may benefit from it or give valuable input. It was by discussing on this forum that the 'Affinity Photo: Developing Landscapes' course came about. So what's on your mind?
  13. Thanks for clearing up the coupon thing Ann. Oh! & thanks for the kind words.
