I just wanted to thank the Affinity Photo team for publishing the Affinity Photo Workbook!  I've come to realize that for me, as a Photoshop user, there was just no way to figure out Photo by myself, and the tutorials were too specific - what I needed was an overview.  And panic was setting in, because when I get a new Mac, I have to upgrade to Catalina, which means finally ripping off the bandaid that is Photoshop CS6.

It's taking effort and time, but nothing has made me more optimistic than going through the absolute learn from beginning chapters in the WorkBook.  As I'm finally seeing how Affinity Photo works, I feel like I'm making the software my own.  As soon as I can finally mimic my most common photoshop tasks, it's finally good bye Adobe for me. :)

I feel like giving back, so I've decided that once I finally feel like I can generally use Affinity Photo, I'll try to make some videos specifically to help those people coming off of Photoshop to transition.  It's a false sense of familiarity - Affinity Photo LOOKS like Photoshop, but it is operated so much differently. :)

Here's to finally reaching Steve Job's original dream of being able to sell software like Photoshop for only $50.

My one request:  Could you also make the WorkBook available in digital form so I could refer to it on my iPad?  That would also allow you to cheaply update it to keep it current.  I fondly call this instant classic "The Pink Book". :)

eBook or any digital form of WorkBooks, iPadOS or Win/Mac, have never been acknowledged by Serif.  Many forums members have requested, prior to your post. BTW, I would purchase the iPadOS Workbook, in digital form, if offered.
