Affinity Photo Question
« on: December 02, 2016, 11:38:14 AM »
Hello all, I have a question for all of you using Affinity Photo;
Can you all tell me what you want to really learn from using Affinity Photo?
Samples;
Save a file,  Crop a file, Remove items from a photo, Make photo more clear, Make photo Lighter or darker, Photo restoration,
Doing this will give me a better idea of what kind of tuts to put up. Also remember  we all need to learn the tools and what they do or can do.
Thank you all, all of you are doing a great job so far.
I am open to questions for and about Affinity Photo, I will do my best to help all of you
So lets all have fun.
Bill  :chickdance: :thanks06:

 :thanks06:,, And yes this is what it is all about , learning the tools and what they can do and what you can do with them and use them for. All photos are different so all in all things work a little different when we use the tools. We all use the tools a little different and that is what makes it fun. There is so much to learn here using AP, and so easy once we learn all about the tools . :chickdance:

Bill go for it. I want to learn all the program can do. In fact today I started restoring a 70 year old photo.... just with what I learned last week. It will take time but I am enjoying it. Befor with PSP you could use the remove scrath tool ,,.... but AP is much easier and better result. All that you mentionned suit me fine

Bill, I too am more concerned with learning the program basics rather than how to do the fancy things.  As we become more familiar with the program, we can get into the goodies.  I would suggest following their 93 tuts as that will take us through just about every aspect.  Of course, a challenge tossed in now and then is always good too. 

Once we learn how to use the tools, we should then be ready to use them to work on our own photos.   The Show and Tell forum is also available for those who are more experienced and just can't wait.  That's just my thoughts. :dancegirl: :dancegirl:

 :thanks06:, Nicky and MaryLou,
Yes we need to learn tools first so we all know how to use them and were to use them ,in the tuts there are sometimes 2 to 3 tuts for using a particular tool, like  beginner , more advanced and , very advanced users.
In posting this post I am just trying to get all inputs, this will make it easier on posting tuts and etc, But on any tut if one does not understand I am always here to help , so just ask,  :pony:

 :praise64:,, Nicky,
If you want to show your work just put it in the Show and Tell, would love to see the before and after work you do, I also seeing your work I may be able to help you. As you use AP you will see it a lot more friendlier than other programs and faster  and easier to use,
I am glad you are trying to use other things with AP,  :thumb3: :thanks06: :thanks06:

Nicky, remember when working on a photo and you save it , always save it as a Affinity File, doing this keeps all your work together, so you can open it and work on it from were you left off, Affinity Files is like the old PI .ufo file or the pspimage file as in PSP , Once you get all you editing done to a photo or image, save the finale work as a affinity file and then export it to a .png or .jpeg file, hope you understand what I am saying here  :thumb3:

Bill, sometimes, when there are two together that are really simple, you could just post both of them at the same time as two different projects though.
