    Affinity Photo Workbook

    Hi All, As announced in a recent blog post we have launched the Affinity Photo Workbook to accompany the desktop versions of Affinity Photo Affinity Photo Workbook Launch Announcement November 23, 2017 We are proud to announce the launch of the official Affinity Photo Workbook, our first ever guide to Affinity Photo on macOS and Windows. Painstakingly put together over many months, the long-awaited Workbook teaches you everything there is to know about Affinity Photo and mastering its powerful tools and capabilities. . This is a big book - 488 pages, in hardback - and it includes fantastic projects created by some top photographers, as well as a comprehensive reference to all our tools and panels, and a set of core skills tutorials. For those who are interested, there is a further blog post describing the creation process Behind the Scenes: Creating the Affinity Photo Workbook November 27, 2017 As we released our glossy full-colour Affinity Photo Workbook last week, we thought you might like to take a look into how it was created… You can find more information about it here. Usual price is $49.99 / £37.99 (+ shipping and handling). It's available in English and German. Hope you like it!
  2. Hi, Is there going to be an Affinity Publisher workbook getting published anytime soon ? I have already bought the workbooks for Designer & Photo. Waiting for the publisher Thank you,
  3. Hi All, For a number of months now behind the scenes we have been producing a workbook for Affinity Designer, and I'm pleased to let you know it is available from today! This is a big book - 448 pages, in hardback - and it includes fantastic projects created by some top designers, as well as a comprehensive reference to all our tools and panels, and a set of core skills tutorials. You can find more information about it here. Usual price is $49.99 / £37.99, but we are running a 20% discount for the launch making it only $39.99 / £29.99 (+ shipping and handling). It's worth pointing out that right now the book is only available in English but we do plan to do a German version which should be available towards the end of the year. Hope you like it! Thanks, Ash
  4. Not sure if this is the correct forum to use for an issue with the Affinity Photo Workbook, but I couldn't see another appropriate place for this. In the professional section, chapter 3, "Search The Woods", there is a recommendation to download a royalty free image from unsplash.com. The link in the book is: https://affin.co/forest. This attempts to redirect to an image on unsplash, but instead ends up with a 404 - not found error. The other link (https://affin.co/man) still successfully resolves to the correct image. Is there a another link to the forest image, or is it no longer available?
  5. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone has used the official workbook for AD but using their iPad and what their experience was in doing so? Were you able to complete all the included sections? Are there any essentials, that would be missed by using the iPad? I am overall looking for more than basic tutorials and looks like there is some great stuff in the book specifically the hybrid and 3D character sections. In general I am having trouble finding viable and more challenging learning opportunities or a real breakdown on all the tools and the when, what, and hows to using them. Any insight or help is greatly appreciated.
  6. The resource files included in the Affinity workbooks are zipped up folders so the first thing you will need to do once you have downloaded the files is right click them and hit unzip or extract. You should now notice a new folder has appeared in the location you have the zipped file stored, this will contain all of the assets needed for you to follow the chapter you are working on. If you are having difficulty downloading the files please note that the web address for the files has to be written in the same format as the below examples. The link will always be http://affin.co/(insert chapter file name here). You will find the page numbers for the download link of each chapter for both Workbooks below: Affinity Designer Workbook Resources Affinity Photo Workbook Resources Still having problems? Read the below instructions for more help.
  7. I am at Page 82 of the Affinity Designer Workbook and followed the instructions to change the Inner Glow layer effect from Normal to Multiply, Screen, etc... but I don't see any change happening. I have a couple of questions: 1) Where can I see the 2 colors that should take part in the blending effect? I only see one gradient color in the Eyeball layer. 2) What should I see by changing the Blend mode in the Workbook example?
  8. I just received my hardback copy of the Affinity Designer Workbook. It looks great. At the start of each chapter is the "Resource" box with a filename in it. Where are these files to be found!? The book says, I see green box with the filename in it... but no link info. I tried tapping on it with my finger, but nothing happened. :)
  9. Following Workbook and got to London 2/HDR at Night exercise page 241. The Perspective Tool is clipping the image along the top corner handles. What am I doing wrong? Tried Tool on another image and got the same clipping result. Either I'm using the tool wrong (most likely) or the tool is broken. Any ideas? Using Affinity Photo for Mac 1.7.1 Thanks

  11. Thought i'd share my take on chapter 5 from the workbook, Snow Queen. Model photo is the stock image provided in the chapter. Graffiti photo is my own, not sure who sprayed it (local skate park and fully allowed area) but it seems to wrap around the model really well and there is a crack/chip in the surface of the wall which lines up with the hair line of the model so well. I did this version on my iMac but have also repeated the same process on the iPad version of Photo. I did try a full black and white version, but didn't think it suited the image. Attached for those who are interested is very low res version of the graffiti shot used, If anyone wants the full res version to play around with just ask and i'll upload it.
  12. I ordered and paid for a hard copy of the Workbook on 1st April. I was told you were waiting for a reprint and that the order would be fulfilled by "early May". I still have not received my copy. When can I expect it? Thanks Gillfranco
  13. I wanted to start a topic for everyone new to affinity designer who's working through the work book or just teaching them selves the basics to upload your highs, lows struggle and flow of your progress or any help some of the senior users would be more than welcomed
  14. -Sell the rights to the electronic copy of the workbooks as a package or as a separate license with trackable id's like electronic barcode signatures or some other internet tracking signature. Other ways of making electronic copies of the workbooks only accessible to the purchaser of record: -Limit the electronic copies of the workbook to 2 x the number of personal purchases of the workbook-linked to 2 electronic licenses for each workbook purchased-verifiable by order number+ip address+username+password. -Limit the electronic copies to 1 x the number of workbooks purchased by commercial purchasers-linked to an electronic license for each workbook-verifiable by a commercial license # + documented employee credentials (verified against commercial licensees verified current employee status) + username + password. (I doubt seriously that many people would be willing to give up their usernames and passwords to third parties). -It would be impossible for a third party to be able to broadcast the ip address of the network of the original purchaser. -Only the original purchaser could submit changes to the ip address, verifiable by supplying the original ip address + some other factor like router signature/serial number or some other network signature trackable by Serif Labs when you log in. -Make the electronic copy of the workbook an online workbook whereby the purchaser of record has to log in which gives Serif Labs the opportunity to compare the ip address, username and password with the last used credentials and/or the last ip address used to access the electronic copy.
  15. The mam_tor.afphoto views as locked and can not be exported as described in the Affinity Workbook page 151, while the file seems not to be locked in the MacOS finder. How may I unlock this file (I didn't find anything on this on Help nor Forum ...)?
  16. Hi, is the information in the Affinity Workbooks applicable for the iPad versions of Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo? Also, are keyboard shortcuts compatible if I attached a keyboard to my iPad? Thanks

    A tiger

    I'm working through the AD Workbook, and the first example seemed a little too easy for an old hand (or do I mean know-all?) like me, so I decided to try something a little more ambitious. So I did a tiger. It wasn't bad, but I thought I could do better ... so I did another one. Here it is ... This is reduced to about 70% of the original size. In the book, Ben The Illustrator says he often works from videos rather than still photos, so I looked out one or two videos on the internet. This image is made from two stills, as the real thing didn't look exciting enough! I made vector shapes on separate layers of: the body and nearer legs; the tail; the head; the further legs; and the stripes -- the stripes I clipped to their layers so i didn't have to fiddle about with the edges. I saved that as an AD file, then as an AP file, which I then edited with some motion and radial blur to give a sense of movement. As I went along, I duplicated some of the layers and rasterised them, so I could add some shading and clip them. Finally, I made up a background from a couple of texture images, and added a shadow underneath the animal.
  18. Can the photo work book be purchased through the likes of Chapters or Coles here in Canada ?
  19. Twenty years ago it was suggested I learn Photoshop to make myself employable at the local community college. Well, I didn't and went on to other things. Now I'm learning Affinity Photo and I have to say I love the Affinity Photo Workbook. I find it's clearly designed, and the exercises are easy to follow. I've always found that I learn best by doing. The Help section is great, but having someone guide me along is very helpful. I'm early into the Workbook, learning about Selections. The first image shows you the photos I started with, the second is the composite made by Selections and saving with Transparent Background. I used a slight Glow effect around the dog to separate her from the cat, sampling the cat for the colour of the glow.
  20. Good Evening Affinity Members. Can anyone tell me if there is a PDF type User Guide for the Affinity Programs? I have recently purchased both Designer and Photo but I have no experience whatsoever. I am watching tutorials but I think it would be helpful to have more information on hand. Thank You
  21. Hi everyone, so i bought the designer workbook, and i was just wondering how long it takes on average, to receive the conformation mail that the order is now being shipped. What experiences do you guys have made? Best regards, Luca =)
  22. Hey. I'd like to let the customer service know that there was something wrong on my order. My book came in already dented, i still have it in the plastics. 3 pictures as attachments, taken on third of November. Order Number: AY10WZV855 p.s. Thank you for your work and also the program. I've so far maybe learned so far 1% out of 100% on how well to use the program and looking forward to use the program more in the future.
  23. I while ago I purchased the Affintiy Photo Workbook and have been happily going through the exersizes - downloading the DPIs/Resources as I go along (using https://affin.co/<resource name>). However, today (30 Oct) i am unable to download any resources. Internet etc is fine and I am working on 100MB connectivity. Ive never had any problems before. Does anyone have any suggestions.
  24. Hi, will there be an Affinity Photo Workbook for iPad in the future? Serif is selling now the Affinity Photo Workbook for Mac with 25%. As I mostly use my iPad Pro, I wouldn't buy this, when there will be an iPad-version in the future. Or do you think I should buy it?
