    drippy cat got a reaction from R_G in Your big friendly guide to layer blend modes   
    Hi everyone,
     
    I just wanted to let people know that I've put up a blog article explaining what layer blend modes are, how they are grouped together and what they do. I also give an visual example of the different blend modes so you can see the effect they have on your images. Here's the link - https://theeagerlearner.com/your-big-friendly-guide-to-layer-blend-modes/
     
    Hope it's of help to you,
    Simon

    Hi everybody,
    I've just released Affinity Designer: Solid Foundations and if you click the link you can get it at the 95% reduction in price. Or you can enter ADSOLIDFOUNDATIONS in the coupon field over at Udemy. The offer is valid until until 20th April  02:04 am PDT.
    This course gives you a thorough grounding in the tools and techniques you need to know when you are producing good design. These tools and techniques are so fundamental that I make sure that they are covered properly and in detail. Practically every image you see is available as a download so you can follow along and I've also created many practice videos. Not a multi choice quiz where you just have to remember the name of a tool. That's not enough - you need practical task based exercises for a program like Affinity Designer and I give you exactly that. When you’ve tried out the exercises, come back to the video and I'll show you how I’d do the same task. I'll also give you some valuable tips about tools, techniques and workflow along the way so you can really nail down the fundamental concepts and be ready to move on to more advanced subjects.
    After learning about vector based tools we'll tackle more topics about enhancing photos for use in your design work. Things like half a dozen different ways to select areas of your picture and the pros and cons of each. You’ll learn best working practices and be aware of gotchas while you learn about vector based shapes, text, artboards, gradients, selective colorization or pro level dodge and burn techniques. Layer blend modes? So many people get confused by them. Give me 20 minutes and you'll wonder why anyone would ever find them challenging. Learn the differences between vector shapes and bitmaps. Layer masks? So useful yet sometimes so confusing. Let me explain them to you and make them a vital part of your new skillset.
    By the end of the course you will have mastered various effective workflows, start to finish. You will gain the confidence to tackle your own vector illustrations, be able to enhance photos, and one day soon you may well be looking at one of your own designs and thinking 'That looks fantastic! I did that...'
    I'll see you on the course,
    Simon

    Serif have announced that because of this wretched virus, they are generously making their software more available. I think it would be an idea for me to follow their example. If we can't get out and enjoy our countryside we can at least develop the photos we have taken of it. For the next 3 days until 24 March, 3:36am PDT the following course is free. Click on the link below and enter FREELANDSCAPES in the coupon field to get $59.99 off the price. That is to say,  It's free. $0.00.

    Hi Alfred. I think there's sometimes a problem unless it be 'twixt Micklemas and Lent, and 3 carrion crows fly westwards to the sea. Or something else equally random. I'm just glad you got it.
