  7. 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
  8. can anyone explain me how to do Boolean operation ? I am novice to the afinity this is my first graphic design softwear so I have no idea how boolean operations work in graphic works. I want to combine shapes but now it is so fustrating and tiresome to think how this is done by boolean operations
  9. I’d love to reproduce the effect from this photoshop tutorial! Any pointers? Cartoon Effect in Photoshop Tutorial
  10. I am new at this on the community forum so forgive me if I am in the wrong area. I want to put some videos together using clip art people or even animated people. Does anyone have an idea as who may have some in the community for download?
  11. Hi everyone, I hope this email finds you not too stressed out with the holidays at the moment! These are the Affinity Photo courses I've created a set of discount vouchers for. Enter the coupon on the Apply Coupon field for the relevant course to get the discount. Be aware that there are a limited amount for each course and it's on a first come, first served basis. Anyway, here's the courses, the discount vouchers plus just one of the many feedback quotes for each of the courses: 75% off 'Affinity Photo for the iPad' with this coupon: AFFINITY_IPAD_2017 - https://www.udemy.com/affinity-photo-for-the-ipad/ 'Excellent!! I have learned a great deal in a short time. Would recommend this course to anyone.' 66% off 'Affinity Photo: Solid Foundations' with this coupon: SOLID_2017 - https://www.udemy.com/affinityphoto-solid-foundations/ 'Great course, have learnt such a lot. the subtle repetition helps a lot. The videos are easy watch and to keep up with. Tutors voice is very easy to listen to all evening too!' 60% off 'Affinity Photo: Developing Landscapes' with this coupon: LANDSCAPE_2017 - https://www.udemy.com/affinity-photo-developing-landscapes/ 'It's the only video that shows a complete work flow using Affinity photo. It's just what beginners like me have been crying out for, well done!' 60% off 'Affinity Photo: The Little Box of Tricks' with this coupon: TRICKS_2017 - https://www.udemy.com/affinity-photo-the-little-box-of-tricks/ 'Totally awesome and at the exact speed to match my level in Affinity' 50% off 'Affinity Photo: Raw Image Development' with this coupon: RAW_2017 - https://www.udemy.com/affinity-photo-raw-image-development/ 'Clear, concise, informative, simple to understand and fun.' 50% off 'Affinity Photo: Five Steps to Better Photos' with this coupon: 5STEPS_2017 - https://www.udemy.com/affinity-photo-five-steps-to-better-photos/ 'Exceptional course, even after completing 2 advanced courses. Simon is very good in what he does and is a good communicator as well.' Just a quick note here. If you already have the Solid Foundations or iPad course, there's no point in you getting the Five Steps course. The Five Steps course is intended to be a very basic introduction to Affinity Photo and the topics it covers are covered in more depth, along with plenty more topics on the Solid Foundations and iPad courses. I wouldn't want anyone to feel like they's paid more for the same information. The vouchers are available until 6th january 2018, & in the meantime, happy holidays to one and all! Simon
  12. I'm in the process of making the auto generated captions legible for the Solid Foundations course at Udemy - https://www.udemy.com/affinityphoto-solid-foundations/ which is taking it's sweet time because they are so gloriously creative when transcribing what I say. Here's some epic quotes, along with my duller corrections underneath. I apologise for demeaning the mighty art that the auto generator hath wrought by correcting it so it actually makes sense. But enough! Here's the highlights from what I've done so far... OK so I'm back to commit to my crap. OK, so I'm about to commit to my crop. Come up here to my croping tool. Cocteau or Prossy. Come up here to my cropping tool. Crop tool, or press 'C' Call me Mr Pretentious if you want the whole length. call me Mr. Pretentious if you want, *darling!*. nowadays, you'll see more and more very wide or tool photos from people's camera phones nowadays, you'll see more and more very wide or tall photos from people's camera phones Santa you're very tall and thin ...sending your very tall and thin.. Let's try 5 by 7 and say wow that's got big Let's try 5 by 7 and rotate - wow! That's got big. Now if I come back to my crotch to instead of the third grade. Now if I come back to my crop tool. Instead of the thirds grid in Photoshop Elements once we Crock-Pot image in Photoshop Elements, once we crop our image Let's take this picture into a vanity photo. Let's take this picture into Affinity Photo. So I asked him Manzi and combat straight into if you got to see them always you thoughts straight up So, press ctrl/command + Z and come back to the straighten tool. If you've got sea there, always use that to straighten up We have three day pokes to crop and rotate. We have three .jpgs to crop and rotate Now the ratio I want is 8:44 Now the ratio I want is 16:9 (think about it...) Every foeticide record its own bit of... Every photo site records its own bit of... What's the Shafter goes down on your camera. Once the shutter goes down on your camera, and then come back to the lame ass layer and then come back to the layer mask layer ... I can leave the original text there if you find it more inspiring...
  13. Hello all! I'm a complete beginner to creating vector artwork. I'm more of a Photoshop person. I have the Designer trial, and since I work better with text tutorials than videos, I went looking for some. I didn't find many, but there are tons for Adobe Illustrator. I did one and the lack of the warp tool in Designer tripped me up. Can you recommend any Illustrator tutorials (since there are so many more of them) that work with Designer? I'm looking for basic stuff. This is the tutorial I tried that used the warp tool, otherwise, I had no trouble with it. https://design.tutsplus.com/tutorials/how-to-create-a-set-of-flat-animal-icons-in-adobe-illustrator--cms-24710

    Vimeo Channel

    Hey I started looking through the Affinity Workbook and am a bit disappointed...On page 11 you reference your social media accounts, and under the Vimeo logo it says, "Learn how to use the Affinity suite with our comprehensive video tutorials at www.vimeo.com/macaffinity." I was excited about this because I learn better hands on vs reading directions. So, I was a bit surprised to see that there are literally only 2 videos on the channel, and they are from 2 years ago. I am aware that there is a bunch of videos all over the internet, but I was hoping for something that went in some type of order. It would be awesome if a set of videos came with the workbook to go along with it in sequence. Do you plan on updating the Vimeo channel? Thank you for all the hard work put into such an amazing program! Jen

Is it possible to run the tutorials from Safari ? ______________________________________________________________________________________ I have found on the forum a document with links to Vimeo and You Tube displays of the tutorials. I havé tried links and it is OK.
  24. I am not sure what instigates it, but if I have watched it to tutorial followed by using the app the audio from the tutorial or even two tutorials may begin playing in the background. The way to stop it is to close the app out.
  25. I'm working my way through the Affinity Designer tutorial videos to familiarize myself with the program, and there's some inconsistent behavior between what happens in the app on my machine and in the video. When alt-clicking the add button to create a compound shape, the video tutorial merges the shapes into a non-destructive compound shape. Yet, on my computer, doing so causes the top shape to disappear. The strange part is, the top shape will reappear if the position of the tear drop is moved far away from the top shape: or moved higher up into the top shape: Additionally, even though both shapes have the stroke set to none, there's still a gap between the two shapes, which indicates that it's not possible for Affinity Designer to do a non-destructive compound addition properly: It's very confusing to have the program behave so inconsistently when following an in-house tutorial video — is this (another) bug, or did I miss a step and not set an option/preference properly?
