Here's where you can find descriptions and links to all 26 of our special Affinity Photo tutorials. Affinity Photo is one of three Affinity applications for photographers, designers and publishers, but with a key difference compared to the Adobe alternatives – you do not pay a subscription, and get the sofware to keep to use on your Windows PC or Mac. 

Instead, you pay a single one-off fee, just like the old days, and once you've paid for the license, it's yours. And at a cost of just $49.99, Affinity Photo is not only excellent value, but it is one of the best photo editing software available. Currently, however, it is being offered at half price - taking the cost down to an incredible $25 for a professional quality editing software. 

To help you get started with this editing program, we have produced a series of Affinity Photo tutorials – 26 step-by-step lessons, that were originally published in N-Photo magazine. Follow them each in turn – of just dip into the lessons that you want to learn from…
