Show your true colours with Affinity Photo

Whether you want to enhance the autumnal feel of a portrait like this or boost colours in any other type of image, there are tools and adjustments in Affinity Photo that are ideal for the task. Adjustment Layers are among the best. These can be built up one on top of another, allowing you to make a series of improvements to your photo: boosting tones, tweaking colours, enhancing contrast and so on. 

The advantage to doing this with Adjustment Layers is that each edit you make works by affecting all the layers below while remaining independent and editable, so you can go back to the settings at any time to tweak things until all your adjustments work in harmony.
