Stephen Walton

Photography Tutor & Photo Editor

Hey! I’m Stephen Walton, your Affinity Photo Course tutor! I love editing – I’ve been doing it for nearly 20 years!

Since discovering Affinity Photo, like many photographers, I’ve found it to be a terrific rival to Photoshop. It offers photographers a faster (but equally powerful) suite to get your pictures looking amazing.

I’m very excited to show you Affinity Photo for Desktop and to help you build a strong foundational knowledge of the tools, buttons and sliders, so that you don’t have to go through the lengthy learning curve.

Once you’ve completed this course you’ll be an expert in Affinity Photo and your photo editing skills will know no boundaries.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will this course teach me the technical aspects of Affinity Photo?

Yes! This is exactly what this short course is designed for. We won’t spend time creating elaborate edits during these lessons. Instead we focus attention on learning the software.

We believe that once you know your tools you’re better equipped to use them in various ways. You won’t need any prior experience or knowledge with Affinity Photo to start this course. But by the end you’ll be an expert!

Who is this Affinity Photo course designed for?

Total beginners! We’ve designed this course to be accessible and simple to follow.

If you’ve just purchased Affinity Photo then this is the first place to start. You can have the software open and follow along to the tutorials to try out all the tools and features we cover.

Do I need the Affinity Photo software?

Yes! To make it easier to follow along with this course it makes the most sense to have already purchased a copy of Affinity Photo for Desktop. This course was produced using Affinity Photo for Desktop 1.0, not 2.0.

This desktop software is a one-off payment which can be purchased here.

Is this course compatible with Affinity Photo for iPad?

No, this course is not compatible with Affinity Photo for iPad – this Introduction to Affinity for Desktop course is for the desktop version only (PC & Mac).

However, our Edit With Apps course covers Affinity Photo for iPad, along with several other incredible editing apps.

How long is the Affinity Photo course?

This course is spread over 5 individual lessons. It’s been designed to be low-impact and time-saving.

These 5 lessons combined should take you just under 2 hours to complete. This time scale is a guideline and doesn’t take into consideration if you are editing your photos alongside the tutorial and need more time to complete the steps.
