I like many other photographers are very unhappy with Adobe's move to a subscription based business model and your product appears to be a reasonable alternative. I can't claim to be an expert Photoshop user but one of the most important operations in PS for me, is the ability to open a number of images as layers and then using masks combine various parts of the images to create a final composite image particularly for product and food photography.

Now I've not been able to find a work flow in your program that enables to perform this operation. If it does exist it is well hidden, if it doesn't exist will you be adding such a feature  and when? As I say I have no desire to go to Abode, however, if you don't have any plans for I shall have to bite the bullet.

Are you using Lightroom?  Are you referring to "Open as Layers in Photoshop"?  If so, it's unlikely that Affinity will be able to implement that functionality, which is why I'm (regrettably) subscribing to Adobe CC.

g'day readers

i am a tutor for affinity photo at seniornet , a learning centre for over 55 year oldies in Auckland New Zealand. previously we tutored ps elements and all the members, ten in number have taken the plunge to swap to aff photo.  i have Snaged images from the videos and added to D Straker and Cutthrouthe fog notes, am transcribing the narration as input data to allow members to repeat the video process at home. the availability of high resolution images and a professional transcription would be appreciated but Rome wasnt built in a day. the quality of the product is great as ia the price. i am somewhat disappointed in the Workbook as much spaace given to Creativity and Commercial but thats life. await the day when authors like Mark Galer and Scott Kelby produce supportring volumes. thanks to all the developers for the fun time we are having

I have several issues with Affinity Photo.  These are:

 

1.  How do I exit from Affinity Photo after saving my edited photos?  I get confusing messages from the software that I do not understand.

2.  When using Viveza 2 I can see weak or washed up colors on my screen.  In order to enjoy the true colors of the photograph to be edited, I have to magnify it to 33%.  Anything below that won't work.  The same is true with the small Loupe screen on the bottom right.

3.  Randomly the software won't run.  In order to have it working, I have to restore my computer.  This is very annoying.

Can you please help me?  I want to use the software but these pesky bugs are getting on my nerves.  If problems persist I will be forced to subscribe to Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop.

Thanks in advance,

Omar Upegui R.

Could we get a sticky on new version install instructions....??? Sorry if I've missed it.

It's usually pretty simple: Download and run the installer. Are you having a problem?

Has anyone had a problem emulating the steps in your "Sky Replacement" tutorial using the latest version of desktop PC Affinity Photo? Having tried unsuccessfully using my pair of images one of which is a sky replacement jpg, I'm wondering a bit if i might get the same two photos used by tutorial to try?

I have wasted MANY hours trying to follow those instructions, without success. I finally gave up. Now if I need to change a sky, I use PSE-14.

In addition to the regular tutorials, we've also got some workflow videos shot on the Windows version of Photo that cover using a variety of features to edit an image to completion. These tend to be released on a more informal basis.

 

 

Please let us know about areas you think need covering, have problems with, don’t understand, or just tell us if we’re on the right or wrong track. Simply reply to this pinned topic.

Have fun with Affinity Photo!

Best wishes from the Affinity Documentation Team!

 

The courses have been created and list was last updated on 2015. But we got 1.6 release in 2018 this year March. So I am sure, there are things to add.

Since version 1.7 beta is out with loaded features, I wish these tutorials are revisited to cover new features.

Was as regular ps user for one year.  Moved to affinity few days back, due to the greed based monopoly subscription model of ps.

It is just bad for the art to let just one tool a strong dependency. Had been searching for alternatives.

Bought 1.6 version of Affinity photo. Initially slightly disappointed that it could not replace ps for what I was doing for last one year.

Just after that day of purchase I came to know beta 1.7 is out.

When I use 1.7, it could do everything for my work. It gives same feeling as I was using ps. I am confident that there won’t be such bad dependency in the art of photography anymore.

Cheers Affinity!

I'm sure that Serif will work on updating the videos, once 1.7 is fully stable and released. Until then, any video they might make showing new or changed features is likely to become out-of-date as the code is modified during the beta process.

Thank you Walt. It looked like the courses had been created and list was last updated on 2015. But we got 1.6 release in 2018 this year March. So I am sure, there are things to add.

But not a show stopper. We can manage to use those features by seeing features list.

Clearly you can only make official videos of the software that you can buy from us. The beta is not recommended for production use, so we would not promote it with "official" videos yet.
