Affinity Photo - Part 1

Date: 3rd June 2016

Duration: 29:08

Show ref: SCOM0560

Photoshop is a fantastic app, but for some people it’s too powerful (or too complex) and for others, they don’t want to be paying for an app on a subscription basis.

Affinity Photo is a terrific alternative to Photoshop - all for a single one off payment!

There’s so much to cover, Allison will be featuring Affinity Photo in two parts - in this initial episode, she’ll take a look at using the wide range of Apple Photo Extensions provided as part of Affinity Photo. 

In a future episode, she’ll take a look at using Affinity Photo as a standalone application.

Photoshop Pt 2 - Layers & Photoshop Fix

Date: 25th March 2016

Duration: 47:58

Show ref: SCOM0550

The second in our multipart series on Adobe Photoshop on the Mac and the Adobe Photoshop apps on iOS.

Many people have opted to use Adobe Lightroom as a replacement for Apple's recently retired photo management application Aperture. Adobe Photoshop is a pro-level photo manipulation and is available to supplement Lightroom in a special bundle from Adobe.

In this episode, Todd Olthoff drills down into using Layers in Photoshop to non-destructively edit your images. The basic principals of using layers are very similar across many applications, so even if you're not a Photoshop user, you may still find this episode useful.

Todd also looks at the iOS companion app - Photoshop Fix.

Photoshop Fix is a free universal app for the iPhone and iPad and allows you to edit your images non-destructively. It also has some unique features for face manipulation and some other cool tools.

Photoshop Fix is free to download and use, but if you're a Photoshop user, you can transfer the updated images from your iOS device with all the layer changes accessible in Photoshop - very smart!


As not everyone has opted for Lightroom or has a need for Photoshop, the Photoshop series will be limited to a three or four part series, published once a month. We will also be looking at some low cost Photoshop alternatives in the near future.

It’s great having your Photos stored in the cloud, but you still need a backup!

If you rely on just a single cloud service to keep copies of your photos, it’s not a complete solution. Without a secondary backup, either locally or on another cloud service, you may find deleted photos are permanently gone. 

In this episode I look at some solutions for implementing secondary local and remote backups for your precious photos.
