New Member Intro - Darra
« on: November 05, 2017, 12:09:47 pm »
Hello, all! My name is Darra and I'm new to Affinity Designer but was here when this forum started with PhotoImpact. I switched to a Mac back in 2006 but kept using PI on the "windows side" (< - real technical term, huh?) of my Macs. I occasionally peeked into this forum to see what was happening, but because I wasn't doing much with graphics or photos, I didn't post. So, I'm back. I want to learn and try things with this new program. I will probably purchase Affinity Photo soon, too. I can't guarantee a lot of participation due to other obligations but I will try to contribute once I learn a bit more.

Welcome back, Darra!!   I'm guessing you're Darra Ward?  Remember you from a very long time ago!  Glad you got Affinity Designer and hope to see some of your work posted!!  I love Designer but still go back to good old PI for things that Designer cannot do yet.  It's still brand new so I'm looking forward to see what they add to it in future versions. 

There are some good beginner tutorials at and links to other sites that have beginner tuts.  That's a great way to get started.   I also  have Affinity Photo but just don't have time to learn two programs at the same time!

Don't be a stranger!!! :cancan: :cancan:
Find a need and fill it!  . . .

Hi Darra I still remember you from the old days with PI but I am glad you are going to learn  A D it is a great program and I love learning it and I think in a few years it will have everything you want in it.
Also try the tutorials on the Welcome panel they are great to start with.  When you are in trouble someone always seems to have the answer.

Welcome aboard Darra. I recall your name and it's good to see you here.

I have AD & AP (to name a few lol) and both are very good programmes.  No need to have bags of time for learning, as you learn as you go, the programmes won't be going anywhere! lol

 :hi: Darra!  I've only been here about 5 months so I'm pretty new to AD and I just bought AP too.  It's so much fun to use and learn and it's a great group here! 


Keep on smiling! It will make people wonder what you're up to!! :)
