To say that this is a "beginner's" guide is very subjective. Perhaps, if you're already familiar with Adobe Photoshop, this would seem like a beginner course. Mr. Anderson seems to assume a certain amount of photo editing knowledge going in to this course glossing over terms like curves, adjustment layers etc. Having said that, there is a lot of good material in the course and it's definitely worth checking it out if you have Affinity Photo installed.
