Introduce Yourself

Recommended Posts

I'm Andy from south-east Suffolk (England). I have been interested in digital image adjustment for many years, starting with Photoshop Essentials 3 (I think) and then various versions of Paintshop Pro up to PSP2020. Whilst I like a lot of PSP, there are various things in the development that have started to irritate. I won't go into the detail!

I was attracted to Affinity Photo from various reviews and favourable comments about the more sophisticated layer adjustments and focus stacking. The excellent video tutorials were an unexpected bonus.

The extended 90 day trial of version 1.9 got me hooked and the half-price offer landed the catch!

As may be expected, there is a learning curve to climb, partly as there is a different design philosophy to that of PSP.

I look forward to learning more.

Hello, I'm Scott Townley, and live in Ottawa, Ontario in Canada. I have been using Affinity Photo for Windows since 2017 although I am new to the forums. I am a photographer and find Affinity to be a relatively manageable program to learn and use. My photography and Affinity Photo skill level has grown such that I produce professional quality photos to sell. My interests in photography include, street, portrait, architecture etc. 

The admins may find this little piece of information of interest. I have seen a steady growth of users in the camera club I attend. From 2018 until 2020 the number of users has grown from two (including myself) to eight at a very rough last count due to covid.

Great to meet users with a similar interest in learning and growing their abilities in AP.

Hi, I'm Ravi. I have started using Affinity products very recently, mostly Publisher and Designer.

I'm a long-time user of InDesign and Illustrator (& other Adobe products as well).

It's wonderful to see this vibrant community of Affinity users.

Hope to learn how users use these tools in their day-to-day workflows.

Thank you.
