  1. Thanks for that info HVDB. I had to find preferences differently but got it an all fixed
  2. Presently I GoTo Macros by clicking View >Studio >Macros. Is there a quicker way?
  3. Thank you MEB. Like to use shortcuts and never thought to look there
  4. How do you identify which tool is in use especially if the shortcut has several tools. eg.J gives Healing Brush but how to tell if one is in Patch Red Eye tool or in-painting? the choices at the bottom left do give choices but do not seem to indicate the tool one is in. Obviously missing something here. please educate !

    Understand what you are saying and agree The MM Pic I showed is but a small portion of the full MM document which I put on to illustrate a method of learning that I find useful I have branches for various particular cases e.g. under Landscape image I have noted some of the points raised by James Ritson in the workbook. Reason for raising this Post was to see how others went about the learning process and would welcomely thoughts

    Re It still depends entirely on what you want to do. Indeed that is why the MMad says Adjustments Various. That would be where I would consider what adjustments were necessary. Format at that time wold be as camera. For me that wold be jpeg as seldom use Raw now.

I try to learn a new program by using a mind Map - this sort of thing - if it makes sense to you
  8. I had a number of macros in Photoshop for puting a border and a frame round photos. Is there anything in Affinity Photo or, if not can anyone suggest the best way to go about doing this? Something like
