Affinity Photo is a good alternative to Adobe Photoshop.

Not used Designer myself, and Publisher is a pre-order.

All £38.99 instead of £48.99.

The iPad version of Affinity Photo is £15.99.

The rest of the store (fonts, brushes, etc,) is also 20% off.

Well dang! I usually would have thought of that.

Oh well, I'm happy to support them at the UK rate, as they have a great product for not much money, and are very responsive to feedback.
on the Microsoft Store too, I prefer that, has automatic updates

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you can then only install it on machines where you are logged in to your Microsoft account. With the Official Store verison, I think you can install it on any 5 machines you own, i.e., you don't have to be the one logged in on it if you still own the machine. Good for partners to use if they have their own Microsoft account.

Yeah I have the affinity store and Microsoft store version of photo and I hate having to retrieve it from the website. Its much easier for the store version for me.
Great product, was using an older lightroom version which needed updating but couldn't justify spending £10 a month for something that I don't use every day. Moved to Affinity, watched loads of videos (there are loads online) and haven't looked back since.
Excellent bit of software. Have been using on my Mac last two months... not missing Photoshop at all

Check out Luminar. It's a pretty decent Lightroom alternative. I have found it a good time-saver, as you can go pretty basic, from filters and quick edits, to getting in depth with your photo editing. It does have a few quirks and bugs, but I have found it good for the price (I think I paid about £50 for it) to quickly get through photo edits.

It also now has a Digital Asset Manager so you can see all your photos in one place.

Im looking for a decent lightroom alternative. Does this have good raw editing and organising like lightroom?

Are you talking about Affinity photo or Luminar from my comment above? If it's Affinity Photo, it does not have a Digital Asset Manager for organising. But it does have RAW editing, HDR merging, photo stacking, etc.

As for Luminar...

As reference, I have never used Lightroom. But I did do a bunch of research before settling on Luminar (tried Capture One and On1, too).

It does have a Digital Asset Manager, where you can see all your photos across all folders. It's also useful in that you can display the RAW + JPEG next to each other, or choose only to display one of them. I believe you can also apply edits to one and then to another. For my uses, I have found the DAM pretty good. It is possibly a bit slow, but I do not have Lightroom to do a comparison, and I suppose it is showing tens of thousands of pictures at a time. So maybe it is not that slow.

As for RAW, it certainly works for me. I used a Panasonic G7. As I understand it, they update their RAW database relatively regularly.

When you bring a RAW photo in, you can make developing adjustments to it, like distortion (their is automatic distortion removal), exposure, etc. Then you apply your edits (or quick look filters if you have less time) on top.

One thing I have found I like is it has layers, which I believe Lightroom does now. I.e., you can apply an edit (or multiple edits) in a layer, and then delete the layer if you don't like it, without it harming the original photo. All edits are layers in Luminar.

Masking is also useful... not sure if Lightroom has that or not.

Last useful feature for me I can think of right now is that you can apply the edit you made on one photo to any others automatically. So you can choose to keep edits in sync. That is pretty cool.

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask and I can have a look in the program.

Sounds like Luminar is more of a true alternative to Lightroom than Affinty! Cheers

Yes, it is. Affinity Photo is more of a Photoshop alternative, Luminar is more of a Lightroom alternative. I use Lightroom when I am doing strictly photo processing, and Affinity when I am doing composites, design, etc etc.

Glad to have helped!
Anyone know how long the sale is on for? Ideally want to wait until my next credit card statement in the next couple of days.

I think it's 19th June, with the release of Affinity Publisher. At least, that is what I am guessing, as it says on their website you can get 20% off Publisher until it releases.
Some of the best software I have ever used and worth every penny. Designer is insanely good, following various tutorials on Youtube I've gone from the ability of a potato to the point where I have done logos and headers for various small companies. best investment I have made in a long time. If you are looking to switch from subs based software and aren't in the elite 1% of graphic designers/photo editors then Affinity's products are what you need. Hot.

RAW yes, DAM not so good
Wish they would bundle these, but at even at full price they’re a bargain.

Be nice if Apple Photos get a decent DAM when iPadOS is released.
Purchased all three. Was waiting for the discount offer. Got 30% discount for the publisher as a beta tester.

I am a long time user of Corel Draw and Adobe products. I think I will be able to almost all of my Graphic Design work in Affinity "Suite". Plus, as much as I respect Adobe products, I have started to dislike the company itself for its extortionate business practice. Monopoly bites.

Plenty of Adobe products there. :-)
The price has shot up by an additional £10 a piece.

Deal needs expiring OP. :-)
