Affinity Photo Astrophotography Image Processing Guide - Second Edition
This new and expanded second edition 100 page guide, takes you through a number of image processing workflows so you can get the best out of your astronomy images using Affinity Photo software.
Dave Eagle, FRAS, astrophotographer, author and astronomy tutor, has been running a number of successful hands-on astronomical imaging workshops and outreach for many years. Following on from this success, he has converted some of the contents of his workshop tutorials into these handy guides.
Serif Affinity Photo has been around for about 5 years now and is a powerful cost-effective alternative to Photoshop. So much so that many professional photographers are switching over to using it.
Written for the Windows Version, but the techniques used are the same in the Mac version. This second edition covers the many Astrophotography Tools included from version 18.104.22.1682.

- Imaging Basics.

Bought this book as I'd installed affinity studio on my computer & I was struggling with the online tutorials, I found it very easy to follow and had improved the processing of my imaging from the start.
Recommend this book to anyone who has just bought Affinity studio & is new

This book is very much an intro into using Affinity Photo for astroimage processing, as the size of the book suggests, but is very well thought out and the examples fairly easy to follow. I'll probably get more of this authors guides
