Join our in-house Affinity Photo product expert, James Ritson, as he demonstrates a variety of techniques for compositing photographs and image content together.
This session covers making selections, quick masking, selection refinement, canvas resizing, sky replacement, fill layers, tonal blending, custom shortcuts, quick opacity toggling, non-destructive retouching, cutting out objects, scaling/rotating, textured brush masking, channel-contrast blending, brushwork, live filters, blend modes and adjustment layers—a fair amount to sink your teeth into!
