    Carl, I just discovered your written tutorials.  I used the Activ8 issue 6 – 3D Text to see what they were like.  You put so much work into it.  That tutorial is great!  So easy to follow.  The video tutorials are good to use but I would rather use the written as I can reread it easier as many times as I want to understand what is being done.  Thank you, I look forward to many hours going through the rest of your tutorials.  Job well done.  Affinity should pin your list with their tutorial list.

    Affinity Photo - issue 30 - Simple Composite Image pt 2
    In issue 26 I showed three ways to match the colour tones of the background and the image(s) you add to it. This issue shows two more ways to do the same thing but in different ways.

    Below is my list of written tutorials I have done over the years. The first few were done using early versions of Affinity programs but they should still be ok. Some menus may have changed or tools look different but the basics are the same.
    Also most are for Affinity Photo, but some could be done in Designer. Plus the "Beginners Look at Affinity Photo" ones will pretty much be the same in Affinity Designer and Publisher as all 3 programs have same basic functions.

    Activ8 issue 7 -Affinity Photo, Designer and Publisher – A look at Styles
    This written tutorial, mainly aimed at beginners of any of the Affinity Software made for PC and Mac. It may work the same on iPad version but I don’t own one so can’t confirm that it will.
    It looks at what Styles are, how to make some Gradient Styles and some Styles made from images. Then how to Export and Import your newly made Styles.
    After that I do a basic overview of a couple of video tutorials I have made in the past. Using the Mirror Filter and the Equation filter to make new images, to then make Styles from.
    Lastly, another overview of a recent video tutorial, which looks at using the Vector Crop Tool in Affinity Designer to grab sections of an image to then make Styles from.
    The end of this PDF tutorial has interactive links to all the video tutorials and links to the downloads of all the Styles I have made in these video and written tutorials.

    The video was done in Affinity Photo but this will be done in Affinity Designer but I see no reason why it can’t also be done in Publisher.

    Thank you very much for your written tutorials Carl, I have followed many of your tutorials. Some of them I like to try out for two reasons one is to learn how to use the tools and the other being creative and different. You have saved me a lot of time by your written tutorials as I write each step down as I follow your tutorials so I remember how to perform the task. I get carried away following the tutorial and miss out writing down a step then when following my instruction and  wonder why it is not working and have to go over the whole process again.
    Thanks again very much appreciated Carl.

    Looking at opening and setting up a new document other than an image. The Brush Tool and changing the Brush Tips. Then looking at the different types of Pixel and Vector layers you can make. Layer Masks and their use. Plus, a quick look at Text and Shape layers and the Glyph Browser.

    I would love 11mbps, much of the month I'm at the 2-3mbps range. With our plan I get 15gb high speed per month, that sounds like a lot but its gotten so the internet eats the data so fast its gone in about 10 days, and that's with very little watching youtube tutorials. I'm thankful that some programs, like Affinity, lets you download their updates onto a flash drive from your download page and then do the update offline at home. But it seems like all tutorials assume that you have unlimited high speed internet.

    Good point about internet speed....you hear people bemoaning there slow download of 11Mbps... something I would have died for a couple of years ago when our crappy line had a 2.4 Mbps max on a good day. Impossible to watch tutorial vids, now everyone expects everyone to have a superfast connection but it's jus not true for many people - and some live in or near big towns as well!

    Exactly! It is also hard to find that particular step you're looking for in a video tutorial when it's so quick just to look back at the written instructions. And then not all of us have consistent high speed internet available meaning we just can't use the videos or have to wait while it loads and have to watch it at lower quality which isn't as sharp and you can't quite see what they've just clicked on. Thanks so much for these!

    How refreshing to find a tutorial that is easy to follow with every step clearly explained rather than many that assume you know what they mean and inadvertantly leave out crucial basic steps that can throw you if you're no sure of Affinity terminology. I like it. Appreciate the time taken to do these.

    Try this...
    If you press the Windows key and R, and type or paste %AppData% into the Run box, and press enter, you should get a File Explorer window 
    Do you then see a folder called Affinity on the right hand side

    Below is my list of written tutorials I have done over the years. The first few were done using early versions of Affinity programs but they should still be ok. Some menus may have changed or tools look different but the basics are the same.
    Also most are for Affinity Photo, but some could be done in Designer. Plus the "Beginners Look at Affinity Photo" ones will pretty much be the same in Affinity Designer and Publisher as all 3 programs have same basic functions.

    This written tutorial, mainly aimed at beginners of any of the Affinity Software made for PC and Mac. It may work the same on iPad version but I don’t own one so can’t confirm that it will.
    It looks at what Styles are, how to make some Gradient Styles and some Styles made from images. Then how to Export and Import your newly made Styles.
    After that I do a basic overview of a couple of video tutorials I have made in the past. Using the Mirror Filter and the Equation filter to make new images, to then make Styles from.
    Lastly, another overview of a recent video tutorial, which looks at using the Vector Crop Tool in Affinity Designer to grab sections of an image to then make Styles from.
    The end of this PDF tutorial has interactive links to all the video tutorials and links to the downloads of all the Styles I have made in these video and written tutorials.

    Blueprint got a reaction from Terry Kohler in Written Tutorials to download   
    Below is my list of written tutorials I have done over the years. The first few were done using early versions of Affinity programs but they should still be ok. Some menus may have changed or tools look different but the basics are the same.
    Also most are for Affinity Photo, but some could be done in Designer. Plus the "Beginners Look at Affinity Photo" ones will pretty much be the same in Affinity Designer and Publisher as all 3 programs have same basic functions.

    Infrared V2 – Affinity Photo 3 ways to make fake Infrared images

    It basically shows 3 methods to get Infrared style images.

    Activ8 issue 7 -Affinity Photo, Designer and Publisher – A look at Styles
    This written tutorial, mainly aimed at beginners of any of the Affinity Software made for PC and Mac. It may work the same on iPad version but I don’t own one so can’t confirm that it will.
    It looks at what Styles are, how to make some Gradient Styles and some Styles made from images. Then how to Export and Import your newly made Styles.
    After that I do a basic overview of a couple of video tutorials I have made in the past. Using the Mirror Filter and the Equation filter to make new images, to then make Styles from.
    Lastly, another overview of a recent video tutorial, which looks at using the Vector Crop Tool in Affinity Designer to grab sections of an image to then make Styles from.
    The end of this PDF tutorial has interactive links to all the video tutorials and links to the downloads of all the Styles I have made in these video and written tutorials.

    Activ8 issue 8 – Affinity Photo – Make Sketch Image With Just The Channel Mixer
    A while ago I made an Affinity Photo video tutorial about making a sketch image just using the Channel Mixer adjustment. I thought I’d up-date it slightly in this written tutorial, which can be done in Affinity Photo, Designer or Publisher.

    Activ8 issue 8a – Affinity Software – 4 Creative yet simple ways to use Blend Modes
    This is a written tutorial update of a video tutorial I did in Feb 2018.
    They are fairly basic edits and will work best with an image that has a white background. So, I will use one I got from Pixabay, as are the other images used. Links to the video and image are in the written tutorial.
    The video was done in Affinity Photo but this will be done in Affinity Designer but I see no reason why it can’t also be done in Publisher.
