Looking for a similar totorial for Desktop Photos

Recommended Posts

Which particular commands are struggling to find, Harry? Broadly speaking, a ‘Studio’ in the iPad version offers the functionality of one or more Studio panels in the desktop apps. APh for iPad also has a separate Selections Persona, so you can simply ignore any instructions to switch personas when you want to use the selection tools.

Hi, thanks. Yes, I'm trying to follow the tutorial on the desktop, but obviously, things are in a  different place, with slightly names. I mean, I'm slowly working it out, and coming to grips with words like "persona" ... new to me. I really am a new user of this software. The note .. go to the Selections Persona, and using the Flood Selection Tool So I worked out that Selection Persona was simply "Select". But then ran into the Flood Selection Tool. Nope, can't see that anywhere. and annoyingly, unlike Photoshop, there is no context help. Where typing the word in the Help Search pane brings up pointers to the right commands. But that's ok. I know they are different.

So there I am stuck at part 3.  Not very far into it I'm afraid. but I keep plugging away.

I’m not on my desktop machine at the moment, so I can’t post a screenshot, but you should find that when you hover over the various tools you get a tooltip displaying the name of the tool.

Keep plugging away, Harry. You’ll get there!

Probably not. Try some tutorials specifically written for the Desktop not the iPad.

Once you get familiar with all the desktop Tools and Commands then following an iPad tutorial will be much easier

PS The Flood Select Tool is on the Tools Panel docked to the left-hand side of the screen


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.
