Just like Photoshop, Affinity Photo can be confusing and tricky to learn. Let me explain the essential features of Affinity Photo that you need to know. Filled with examples and exercises, you will soon be editing images as though you have been using the software for years.
Tools and techniques for serious photo editing

If you ever find yourself wondering how to do something in Affinity Photo, then this book is for you. It doesn’t matter if you are a novice or advanced Affinity user, you are likely to discover something you didn’t know by reading this book.
In Affinity Photo How To you will learn how to perform common tasks such as how to crop a photo, how to sharpen an image or how to create a mask. But in doing so you will learn much more than just a collection of simple techniques.
Each chapter of the book focusses on a different activity, and using instructive exercises, explains how Affinity Photo works. Importantly, it links what might seem unrelated activities together, to build your understanding and editing skill in Affinity Photo. By the end of this book, you will find you are delving deep into Affinity Photo to perform tasks such as easily creating complex selections and masks.
What You Will Learn
Here are just a few examples of what you will learn:
- How to customise almost every aspect of the Affinity interface.
- How to control the many different options when exporting an image, like colour space, bit depth and image resolution.
- How to edit images using different colour formats for example RGB and CMYK, but how to do this without changing the image format.
- How to easily add layer effects including shadows, outlines, and glows.
- How blending modes work and how you can use these with different Affinity Photo tools like the Paint Brush.
- How to use the Refine Selection dialog to greatly improve the accuracy of a selection automatically.
What may seem like a simple topic will probably delve much deeper into Affinity Photo than you imagine.
Accompanying the many exercises in this book are sample files. You can download these from the authors website, allowing you to follow along in your own copy of Affinity Photo.
Packed with tips and advice, this book is a valuable resource for all users of Affinity Photo.
Do I need a Kindle or eReader?
No, you don't need to buy a Kindle or eReader device to read these books. All that you need is free eReader software and there's a large choice. If you are an Apple user, you can use the Books app that comes with every Apple computer, iPad and iPhone. Your book is then uploaded to the Apple cloud and shared across all your Apple devices.
If you are a Windows PC user there is a wide range of free eReader applications. Personally I like the free Kindle software. It has great features and is available for Apple, Windows and Android devices.
What if I'm not satisfied?
Let me know within 30 days of purchase and I will refund you in full. You can contact me by email using [email protected] and no I won't be offended. It will help me though if you can say why you want a refund so I can improve my books and service.
Which format should I buy?
I now offer my books in two formats which are PDF and ePub. Older books are also offered in the proprietary Kindle Mobi format, but Amazon has now retired this and adopted ePub instead.
ePub is by far the best format for reading books as it supports many features like being able to change text size to make it easier to read. In contrast, PDF is better for layout and printing pages or sections of a book.
When purchasing a book, choose the format you would like using the dropdown. I recommend purchasing the "All" format option where possible as this will give the greatest flexibility for the future.
Can I print the book?
Yes you can.
Whilst you can purchase most of my books as paperback from Amazon, I know some people only want to print a page or section. The PDF version of the book is great for this and there are no restrictions provided that it's for your own personal use. You can even print the entire book if you like, although with the cost of ink it may be cheaper to buy the paperback.
Can I read the book on multiple devices?
You can have your book on as many devices and computers as you like and make copies provided that it's for your own use.
How do I get my book onto my Kindle?
Amazon has a service which you can use to email books you purchase to your Kindle library. These are then available on your Kindle reader or software. Amazon has a lot help on their website about the Send to Kindle service.
But Send to Kindle isn't the only option Amazon offers. You can read about others in the Help pages of the Amazon website.
