Affinity For Tattooists

Affinity photo primer

By 27 May 2022 No Comments
Welcome to my Affinity photo primer for tattooists. In these posts I’m going to go over the basics principles. Then in future posts I’ll cover each tool or technique in more detail.
Affinity Photo has become the first choice for photography and creative professionals around the world. We love its speed, power and precision. Born to work hand-in-hand with the latest powerful computer technology, it’s the only fully-loaded photo editor integrated across macOS, Windows and iOS.

Performance and power

The raw power under the hood of Affinity Photo will leave you amazed at how quickly you can work. Watch your edits render in real time and dive into the huge toolset. Tailored to the demands of a professional workflow.

Make quick corrections or spend time on a detailed retouch. Affinity Photo has a complete set of retouching tools and dedicated features to help.

Effects like blurs, lighting, distortions and perspective corrections can all be applied as non-destructive live filter layers. You can erase away from them, mask them, reorder them and adjust parameters at any time.

It’s a completely new way to work.

With support for limitless layers, Affinity Photo provides a full library of adjustments, effects and live filters, all of which can be blended together to create incredibly complex image compositions.

Affinity Photo’s super smooth brush engine and advanced dynamics offers the most fluid and natural painting experience available.

Achieve a level of accuracy you never thought possible with Affinity Photo’s advanced selection refinement algorithms.  You can make extremely precise selections – even down to individual strands of hair – with ease.

Switching? Is this Affinity photo primer for you?

This Affinity photo primer is designed to help a tattooist switch over and start using Affinity photo. For the creation of Tattoo designs and stencils. It’s a viable replacement for Adobe Photoshop.
All the basics are covered you’ll be able to start creating designs today. If you’re a Tattooist who’s completely new to Affinity this guide will help you get started as quickly as possibly.
Already experienced Affinity on a desktop? You will have absolutely no problem diving headfirst into the iPad version of Affinity Photo. This guide will help you get into it quicker. It’s the same program—but with touch!
This Affinity photo primer for tattooists won’t help professional Photographers or a Graphic Designers very much. But, thankfully, here’s huge community of Affinity users. Illustrators, designers and photographers creating tutorials that will help you. One of my personal favourites is Brad Colbow.
