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!

 

Hi Patrick,

Have got my book and its great, but....I am working through chapter two. The problem I have is that on exercise "manipulating an adjustment layer mask" and manipulating a live filter layer mask" the "colour panel" doses not appear. I have tried several times on both exercises selecting the "paint brush tool" and adjusting it as instructed but no colour panel appears. Can you tell me where I am going wrong.

Much appreciated.

Regards

Mikep

True, and considering that 'Amazon delivery' are our partners it's a lot that they charge us for the warehousing and delivery part. Perhaps that's why they are a multi-billion dollar company. I understand that these delivery costs look high, but combined with the reduced price book we may still be cheaper than ordering from Amazon directly. Please check as Amazon.de sales are not Serif sales so best to choose what is right for you.

 

Yes, I see. Thanks for reply.

Ordered AP workbook the day I received the email (11/23) but so far nothing but the funds have removed from my account. When may I expect it or at least an email that it has been shipped? Order number AFZ171P70D. You guys sure make it hard to get support.

If you log in to your Affinity Store account you should be able to find some indication of the order status.

The Affinity Designer Workbook continues to be unavailable in any language other than English and German. I would be very surprised if the same doesn't hold true for the Affinity Photo Workbook.

How true is this?

 

I guess it all depends on your definition of the term 'expert', and/or how flattered you want to be! :D

Well, @codelearner, in my opinion if they really mean it when they say "Once you’ve finished this chapter you will be an Affinity Photo expert!" then they can't be setting the bar very high!!

Pour Lightroom , j’ai les livres (bible) en français et en anglais pour être certain de bien comprendre. Je ne le regrette pas. Donc le livre Affinity Photo serait le bienvenue en français aussi. :)

@codelearner

To me, expertise comes from gaining knowledge and practice.  The way this book is designed, you get both. Early chapters teach specifically about the app.  Later chapters teach you expert image processing skills and the app at the same time.  So you can use these skills right away.  

 

I'm at page 314 (Search The Woods) and I feel very comfortable and confident with Affinity Photo now. So much so, that I opted to process and print some holiday photos I took for a family friend in  Affinity - instead of PS -- this weekend.   The results were great and I enjoyed the process.

This was the problem; the price quote was in Canadian dollars, not US.  Once I completed the order info with my address it changed to the correct amount.  Order just placed & have been looking forward to something like this ever since I was a beta tester for the original release. 

I’m in Canada and the made a correction in price (!!! ???) 

 

It is almost the same price then Affinity Photo the software!!!  To expensive for me. :( :o

I also am at the same point as you, I got Paypal confirmation. I also emailed them and no word yet, my original email for the order said it was in stock and should receive it in 5-7 business days I thought I'd at least have received a shipped email by now?

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums.

 

The order (AHV7F1W3MN placed by the email address you used here) was placed 3 days ago (perhaps 4 depending on your timezone), but perhaps you have another one ordered earlier I cannot tell. If you have not received notification then it has not been shipped. You can request more information from affinityorders@serif.com. Some regions of the world provide tracking information, but I do not know if New Zealand is one of those, but they will. This Affinity Photo Workbook has been extremely popular, and you may need to be patient as we are still dealing with email requests to that address from Friday and Saturday.

ChiefT,

Sorry your tweet has not been replied to, the Customer Services team are a few days behind on their tickets due to illness in the team. I expect you will get a response soon.
