Pho­­to Editing for Beginners - discover the wide array of clever edits you can make on the mobile platform using smart phones and iPads

Jo Bradford delivers this relaxed and informative workshop for both Apple and Android users offering an insight into how to edit your photographs using a range of skills, tools and filters.  You will be shown how to transform the photograph you captured with your camera into the masterpiece that looks like the scene you saw in your mind’s eye.  

In this introduction to image editing you will learn how to use the inexpensive yet extremely powerful Affinity Photo image editing software to lift your images to the next level without having to turn on a desktop computer.

Learn the most useful controls and tools to resize, crop and level images.  Adjust exposure, brightness and contrast. Make smart selections.  Create layers and masks. Carry out selective adjustment of hue, luminosity and saturation. Adjust white balance.  Get creative with a range of filters and black and white conversions.  Learn about exporting your images in different file formats.

Please bring your smartphones for some shooting exercises on the day along with some of your favourite photos to edit, and don’t forget your iPad pre-loaded with a copy of the Affinity Photo software (Affinity works on the following versions: iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, iPad Pro 9.7-inch, 10.5-inch, and 12.9-inch.)
