Affinity Photo is a relatively new product, but it has made waves in the photography world. It’s interface is clean and understandable but it has all the power needed to handle the most complex edits.
During this class students will become familiar with Affinity Photo. They will learn the basics of adjusting images in it, layer based editing, and how to repair image defects (such as removing unwanted objects or repairing skin blemishes).
For those already familiar with Affinity Photo and basic editing, or with considerable experience in Photoshop, consider the Intermediate Photo Editing: Affinity class, which covers more advanced editing such as mask creation and compositing of images.
- Getting around affinity’s user interface
- Understanding “destructive” image editing
- Understanding layers and layer based editing
- Adjusting images with adjustment and filter layers
- Basic masking of adjustment and filter layers.
- Repairing defects with inpainting, heal and clone.
- Exporting images
This workshop is designed for photographers new to image editing interested in becoming comfortable with Affinity Photo.
A laptop or tablet with Affinity installed if you want to “click along.”
Note: the iPad version of Affinity looks different than the desktop version, but the concepts covered all apply. Bring your tablet and Andrew will help you learn to use it!
