Really powerful software to rival Adobe with no subscription costs and free updates. Software now available for Windows too which is a bonus...

Looks like it is really simple and powerful with nice tutorials available here:

Might be a decent thing to play around with over the holidays...cut out the unwanted presents (people) from your family pictures

I've been using this as a secondary to Photoshop for the past 6 weeks or so on Mac. Admittedly I've only being using it for exportation of .svg files for work, as I mainly use Photoshop and other programs to get my end result so I've not really had much chance to play around with it, but I do intend to do so as I believe that it will eradicate my need for two separate programs when I finally get my head around it

Cool story, bro. TLDR: I really think it's got great potential and it easily worth the £29.99 asking price. Heat added mate.

Photoshop does have an alternative with no subscription - it's called Adobe Photoshop CS6 (_;)

Really? I thought they gave up support in favour of the creative cloud with a monthly...hmm. Any links for price comparison?

All these sorts of tools take a lot of getting used to i feel. The vimeo tutorials seem like a nice thing for affinity here. The getting started alone covers a lot of the basics which I have found useful this afternoon

That'll be all the tight leather... makes most things difficult tbh oO

Serif are horrible people who market their goods using pressure sales techniques over the phone to vulnerable groups.

I've been there, passed the tests, seen the reps at work, turned down the job.

Well I have just purchased to replace my ancient version of Photoshop that stopped working with Windows 10.

Hopefully it's good and not too complicated as will only be doing fairly basic stuff with it.

You welcome.
It's being developed by the KDE folks, so should get regular updates/features.

KDE?

Do you know where one can purchase cs6? Can only seem to find subscription cc?

i currently use a free piece of software called GIMP. Does this offer any additional features for the money?

Hey I would say so yes. Check the tutorial videos in the post as that will give you a good idea of what it can do

If Affinity Photo could use my PS actions, it might be worth considering. However, the integration of Lightroom, DxO OpticsPro, with PS mean it is the most efficient workflow sequence for me. To say it is an alternative to PS is to say my bike is an alternative to my car. They can both get me places, but one does so with much more versatility and speed than the other.

I've used Serif PagePlus for years, but have moved onto Publisher because it has, to my mind, a better text editor. also got fed up with Serif's telesales approach.

If you are pro editing then yeah PS and the adobe suite works! Hands down the business

For most folks at £29.99 its a nice toy to play with

got this, and its horrid compared to photoshop.. only brought it for £20 at the time, as it was "new" but its bad..

Yes, it doesn't look, feel and work like a freeware linux program. ;-)
