Star-Gazing Guide to Affinity Photo Astrophotography Image Processing.
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.
This is written for the Windows Version, but the techniques used are the same in the Mac version.
I have not used Affinity Photo with an iPad, so cannot comment on how similar that version works, or not.
This edition includes the many Astrophotography Tools included from version 18.104.22.1682.
Among the techniques covered within the guide are:
