Affinity - Imagined by designers, created for professionals

The official Affinity Photo Workbook is here – and there’s a 25% discount for the first week of launch!

We are proud to announce the launch of the official Affinity Photo Workbook, our first ever guide to Affinity Photo on macOS and Windows. Painstakingly put together over many months, the long-awaited Workbook teaches you everything there is to know about Affinity Photo and mastering its powerful tools and capabilities.

Affinity Photo Workbook

To celebrate the release of this stunning book we are offering a 25% introductory discount for the first week of launch. This means until Thursday, 30 November you can purchase a copy for £27.99 / 32.99€ / $36.99 (+ shipping and handling) exclusively on our Affinity Store.

Beautifully presented in hardback and printed across 488 full colour pages, the Affinity Photo Workbook combines the vast knowledge of our own in-house experts with exciting contributions made by renowned digital artists and photographers from around the world.

Affinity Photo Workbook

Rather than an A-Z manual, it’s designed to inspire users to create their own unique work in Affinity Photo, by taking inspiration from some amazing projects and advice. And because it focuses on professional skills and techniques, the Affinity Photo Workbook will still be completely relevant even when updated versions of the app become available.

The Affinity Photo Workbook is split into five easy to follow chapters:

  • Chapter 1: Interface Tour

    Helps you get to grips with every tool, persona, option and panel in Affinity Photo. You’ll also learn how to customise your workspace and shortcut keys to maximise productivity.

  • Chapter 2: Core Skills

    Covers all the basic techniques you need to know, including adjustments, layers, masking, developing RAW images and creating super-accurate selections.

  • Chapter 3: Enthusiast Projects

    From the challenges of urban photography to the secrets of HDR, you’ll dive into some high-end techniques with six easy to follow projects.

  • Chapter 4: Commercial Projects

    Focuses on the high-end skills needed for top level fashion retouching, landscape panoramics, print design and food retouching.

  • Chapter 5: Creative Effects and Techniques

    Explores the power of macros, creating custom brushes and working on compositions with 100s of layers. Once you’ve finished this chapter you will be an Affinity Photo expert!

We’ve also included five keyboard shortcut cheats sheets in the back of the book to help boost productivity. They contain shortcuts for both the macOS and Windows version of Affinity Photo and can be torn out and kept aside for easy reference.

The launch offer must end Thursday, 30 November, so don’t miss out. Purchase your copy now for just £27.99 / 32.99€ / $36.99 (+ shipping and handling). Click here to view the list of countries we ship to.

Bonjour A quad une version française ?

Affinity Support -

@Yves Godart: The workbooks are only available in English and German at the moment. Hopefully we'll make it available in more languages in the future.

I think it's not a good thing that a paid software manual is not free... When you buy a TV, i'll never accept to have to give more money to have its manual, right ? I think it's a big detriment to the reputation and development of the software. French version will be very appreciable.
