  1. Affinity Publisher Tutorial Beginners Guide - A Look At Using Guide Lines and other Guides Although this is an Affinity Publisher tutorial, both Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo use most if not all the same guidelines and guides. So, even though they may have these features in different places, they will work in the same way. In this tutorial I will be looking at the aids that can be found, to help with your projects layout and alignment. These include…. Margin Guides, Bleed Guides, Ruler Guides, Visual Guides, Grid Guides, and Column Guides Although visible with-in Affinity Programs, they do not appear when you print out or export your project as a PDF. They are all just Guides to help you out.

  2. Affinity Software Tutorial - Beginners Guide - Using resources that claim to be just for Photoshop Users There are many resources on the Internet, that new users of Affinity Photo, Affinity Designer and Affinity Publisher may be put off from checking out and using. Just because the Internet search and other adverts make out, they are ‘Photoshop’ specific. This is just not the case, there is so much free stuff out there that non-Photoshop users can take advantage of. This written tutorial looks some of these resources, things like; Overlays, Textures, Brushes, Backgrounds, Fonts, SVG files, Mock-Ups or Templates, Image Files and Presets or LUTs. I have included, hyper-links to many video tutorials about using these resources. A few by me but most by other people.

  10. WRITTEN TUTORIAL Affinity Photo A look at blurring the background using a Field Blur When it comes to blurring the background of an image or a composition, most tutorials I see overlook the Field Blur filter. They use Tilt Shift or maybe Gaussian Blur with Mask added. I think the Field Blur gives you a bit more control, so I would advise checking it out, when you next want the background looking blurred. https://www.dropbox.com/s/mv74rzrnzsarb7n/Affinity%20Photo%20-%20Field%20Blur%20The%20Background.pdf?dl=0

  13. A Written Affinity Photo Tutorial Beginners Guide pt 18 – Adding A Gradient To A Layer Mask I have been seeing a few requests for help recently, from people wanting to know how to fade an image from one edge. Be it from the left or right side or from the top or bottom of an image. Some people wanting it to just fade in opacity and others wanting it to fade to a complete removal of pixels. Mainly so they can add text over the fading areas, so it is easier to read. Hopefully this will help those people and others wanting to do something like this.
