Get ready to uncover the power of Affinity Photo and take your photo editing to a new level!

Affinity Photo (for desktop) is a next-generation photo editing platform designed for photographers. In this Introduction to Affinity Photo course, you’ll master all the essential panels, menus and toolbars and advanced features that make photo editing a snip!

Affinity Photo is a great alternative to Photoshop and Lightroom. It comes in desktop and app form too meaning you can edit at home and on the go. If you’re a beginner to photo editing we’ll guide you step-by-step over 5 time-saving lessons led by iPhotography Tutor Stephen.

Unfortunately, many photographers don’t have the time to learn what every button, option and slider does. If you don’t know where to find the tools you need you can waste valuable time editing your photos. If only there was one place you could learn everything you need…

There is Now!

Portrait Photographer & Photo Editor

Hi, I’m Stephen your Affinity Photo Course tutor! I am a huge fan of editing photos – I’ve been doing it for years, over 15 years to be precise! Since discovering Affinity Photo I’ve found it to be a great rival to the regular Photoshop and Lightroom options. It offers photographers a faster (but still powerful) suite to get your pictures looking amazing.

I’m super excited to show you Affinity Photo for Desktop and help you build a strong foundational knowledge of what most of the tools, buttons and sliders do. Once you’ve completed this course you’ll be an expert in Affinity Photo and your photo editing will know no boundaries.

I look forward to you joining me on this adventure to Affinity (and beyond)!

Frequently Asked Questions

Will this course teach me the technical aspects?

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 course designed for?

Total beginners! We’ve designed this course to be accessible and simple to follow. Even 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 software is a one-off payment which can be purchased from 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 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 does the course take?

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.
