  1. I need assistance or enlightenment in working on the Discovery project. No problem in making the Mid, Foreground, Element and Astronaut layers. Creating the light beam, Pen Tool (selected Element layer) no problem. Renamed the curve layer to Light beam. Select Paint Brush Tool, painted white 69% Opacity. Clip the brush layer to Light beam’s layer, no problem. As stated, to give smoke natural look, change the blend mode to Overlay. This is my first problem, totally removes all visible smoke. I had to return to Normal mode to see any smoke. Second problem, instructions state use Ease Brush tool, using same brush to give natural look; however, this adds a Mask layer, not to be found in instructions. I will attach screen shot of progress and mask layer. As seen, I changed from Overlay to Normal blend mode to see color. Thank you for any info, corrections or user error in following Workbook instructions.

  3. Hi, It would be really great if you could make it so that Vimeo videos on https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/learn/ would play with third-party cookies blocked. Thanks.
  4. I'll be the first to admit, I am NOT an accomplished photo artist. In fact, I would put myself at a "3" or "4" on a 1 - to - 10 ability scale. Therefore, I am always looking for more and more lessons to increase my skills and enhance my talents. In doing so, I hope to gain the most from the Affinity tutorials, given I'm a registered user of all three apps. And therein lies the frustration. In short, when I attempt to watch the Affinity tutorials, the presenter starts by introducing the subject, and then proceeds to open an image, and in doing so, nearly always opens up a series of layers he has already created. Unfortunately, he has also renamed them, so those of us who are learning, have no (grrrrrr) clue of how or why he created them. Therefore, HOW ARE WE EXPECTED TO KNOW WHAT, OR HOW HE IS PROCEEDING? It's obvious he is 'assuming' we all can successfully guess what the hell he has done, why, and with which tools. (Beyond frustrating; more importantly, it is a terrible representation of Affinity.) Specifically, these tutorials are high on the 'frustration menu': Blend Modes (https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/tutorials/photo/desktop/video/310319088/). He calls them 'render passes'. No definition of 'render passes', (I can interpret such a term in a number of ways given it's out of context. I spent the better part of any hour searching for 'render passes' without luck.) Layers (https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/tutorials/photo/desktop/video/311178905/). Even in this video covering basic layering, he begins with a highly populated list of layers. HE KNOWS WHAT THOSE LAYERS ARE, WE DO NOT! How can we get a strong, integrated understanding (i.e. without obvious questions popping up such as, "What are those layers, why did he chose them, and how did he create them?") It would only take a few minutes to explain them and build the lesson from the beginning instead of beginning the tutorial at some arbitrary point along a learning curve. At the least, reference those tutorials which provide the lessons for creating the components he is utilizing. The list of other similar examples is long. The solution is to include the steps he has left out prior to his video starting point. PLEASE, make videos for the audience, not the perspective of the presenter. If you are going to start with pre-created elements in support of a subject, take the time to explain them. You know what they are, but if you expect us to get value from the tutorial, you have to explain yourself so we are on the same page as you. Thank You.
  5. Hi everyone. I just wanted to let you know that I've updated some of the Affinity Photo courses to cover what I think are the best new features of the recent 1.7 desktop version of Affinity Photo. I'll start work on the iPad course next. There's 5 new videos running at a total of 45 minutes worth of new tuition. I've added some or all of the videos to the courses where I think they are relevant. This doesn't affect the price of the courses. I just wanted to make them better. The updated courses are Affinity Photo: Solid Foundations with the promo coupon EFOUNDATIONS to get it at for $9.99 usd or whatever that gets converted to in your local currency. Affinity Photo: The Little Box of Tricks with the promo coupon ETRICKS to get it at for $9.99 usd or whatever that gets converted to in your local currency. Affinity Photo: Beginner to Pro via Reference and Workflow - with the promo coupon EWORKFLOW to get it at for $9.99 usd or whatever that gets converted to in your local currency. Thanks for your time Simon
  6. Hi Since the new version arrived there seems to be far less tutorials available In particular there was one on using the perspective tool (I know because I've viewed it before). It's now missing or else hidden away somewhere. Any suggestions?
  7. When accessing the original sets of video tutorials it was possible to download and save them to a hard drive for, in my instance, viewing when internet access is slow, difficult or not possible. For the new, updated tutorial sets the download option does not seem to be available.. at least I cannot see it. Is the option to download now ceased or will it return ?

  12. I have come across a you tube channel named "InAffinity" which covers free tutorials for affinity photo. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOnLUmyPHr2rayOHVHWsHVw/videos What makes this channel unique from others is that the information is provided at moderate pace with logical and scientific reason behind each step. The moderator is to the point and explains every thing in easy to understand language. I thought I should share it with everyone and hopefully you will enjoy learning from these tutorials. If you also know about some thing similar, please share it in the forum. Thanks
  13. Hello, Sorry if I appear a bit lame, and possibly posting the wrong forum, but I wanted to know if there was a way to filter the tutorials by software eg: only designer or publisher. Sometimes tutorials don't even mention which software they cover (most of the tutorials seems to be for APhoto, which I don't own). I can't find a way to filter by tags (even though most posts don't have the software as a tag, it could help). I find searching a bit tedious a a result, but there is search feature I may have missed? This is bizarre because other forums are separated by "Photo", "designer", "Publisher", and then separated by platform. As it stands, the tutorials sub-forum is a bit of a mess Let this small puzzlement not distract from the fact that I am very grateful to those who publish tutorials
  14. Can the photo work book be purchased through the likes of Chapters or Coles here in Canada ?
  15. I going to spend 10hrs in a airplane and would like to spend that time in a useful manner. Learning from the excellent tutorials on Vimeo would be a great idea, I think. I cannot download them, so I hereby request to buy them so I can view them offline
  16. 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 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.

Professional instruction, delivered in record time! Thanks for your time, Simon
  17. Hi, Wondering if there is a tutorial on how to adjust bright light coming into a room through a window. Thanks!
  18. The listed video tutorials just give a grey screen in Safari 11.1.2, MacOS 1013.6 when I click on the thumbnails. Do I need a plugin?
  19. I just want to share with you, that I have just launched an Affinity Photo Workflow Video Course. I have for a long time felt a lack of training videos, that tie the features of Affinity photo into one professional workflow. So, I have created a course, that: Allows you to begin to use Affinity Photo like a PRO with confidence. Explains a Start-to-Finish Affinity Photo workflow. Get to know all the post-processing steps: from opening a RAW file to publishing or printing the finished image. 140 minutes of video content, including explanations of key processing techniques and case videos. Includes 3 bonus workflow macros included. Specially designed for this video course. Gives you everything you need to establish your own non-destructive workflow using Affinity Photo. There is already a lot of great videos about how to use Affinity Photo, however with this new course, I think that many photographers can improve their understanding of Affinity Photo and establish their own editing workflow. By the way, as a thank you to Serif for giving photographers a great product, all interested users in this forum can use the coupon: forum.affinity.serif at check out get an extra 15% discount on the video course. I hope you welcome it into the growing pile of professional training material for Affinity Photo. Cheers, Peter Dam

  21. Hi everyone, Just to let you know I released my latest course. It's called Affinity Photo: Beginner to Pro via Reference and Workflow and is designed to answer one question: 'I've learned some of the tools with Affinity Photo, but how do I actually enhance an image, start to finish?' I take you through the development of a series of photos using a variety of workflows. We start with a simple workflow that's just right for beginners then move on to more advanced workflows as the course progresses. But there's a problem. Learning the when and why of an effective workflow is all well and good. But it's hard to learn the tools when you're learning about the workflow and it's near impossible to learn about the workflow when you're learning about the tools. So I've done both. This course is divided into two sections. You get hours of tutorials which cover various workflows and approaches to developing photos. But you also get a huge reference section which covers the various tools that Affinity Photo has to offer. If there's a tool I'm using in the workflow videos, there's a video explaining just that tool in the reference videos. Two ways to learn Affinity Photo. Reference and workflow. The course comes with a special introductory price. If you enter the coupon AP_BEGINNER_PRO right under the video on the landing page where it says 'Have a coupon?' you can get the course for $11.99, which is even cheaper than the sale price Udemy is offering it for. By the end of the course you will have seen and followed along with various effective workflows, start to finish. You will gain the confidence to tackle your own images, be able to select which workflow suits the photo best, and one day soon you may well be looking at one of your own photos which you've enhanced, and thinking 'That looks fantastic! I did that...' I think it's only fair to say why this course is different to some of my other courses. For starters it's the longest Affinity Photo course I offer, but there's more to it than that. Affinity Photo: Solid Foundations is the original comprehensive introduction course that I created. It was designed to be the general purpose course that I'm sure people are familiar with - explain how to use the tools, give people exercises to consolidate their knowledge, talk a little around technical matters like how an image gets into your camera and so on. Then there were courses like the RAW course and the Little Box of Tricks course which focussed on particular areas of image editing such as creating special effects. But it was after a conversation I had with someone on the Affinity Photo forums who really wanted tutorials that concentrated on how to enhance a photo from start to finish. His field of interest was landscape photography so I released Affinity Photo: Developing Landscapes. It was different to the other courses in that it concentrated on the workflow. I was unsure about how it would be received because it was different to anything I'd done before. I was pleased that it got good ratings and comments at Udemy, so then I decided to do a longer and more general course which had workflow at it's center and so we now have Affinity Photo: Beginner to Pro via Reference and Workflow. I realised from the Developing Landscape course that it needed a reference video section in a one tool/one video format as well as the workflow videos. If I didn't then I'd spend far too much time going into detail about what a tool does while I was also trying to explain a workflow. It would just get too confusing. So the new course is split into two sections. The workflow at the beginning, which is the primary intent of the course, and the reference section which is intended to supplement the workflow. Now, if you already have the Solid Foundations course, you will already have seen most of the tools covered in the reference section and I wouldn't advise you to get the new course if a tool reference was all you wanted. But what I would say is that around 6.5 hours of the new course is devoted to various different workflows and I take a series of pictures from start to finish so you can see how the various different tools in Affinity Photo fit together to improve a picture. There are other courses about Affinity Photo at Udemy for the same asking price that are shorter than just the workflow section of my new course. So I believe I'm offering good value for money. I hope that clears up any questions, but click on the link at the top of this post and go to the landing page for the course. There is an introductory video that explains what the course is about. That may help you further to decide whether to use your coupon to take advantage of the introductory price. Now, one last thing - Udemy are offering their own introductory price for the course. With the coupon you can get it for cheaper. Just enter BEGINNER_PRO_INTRO into the coupon field for the better price. Thanks for your time, Simon Foster
