How is Adobe still in business!!???
I've been a professional photo editor for over 15 years. The editor of choice for the majority of that time was Ps. I've also used Lr and Corel. a few months ago, I was over at a friends house when I noticed one of his kids was editing her vacation photos using Affinity Photo. She knew her way around the program quite well. So I (somewhat arrogantly, I must admit) began challanging her to perform a number of edits I thought the program wouldn't be capable of doing. I quicky learned that Affinity isn't an editor to take lightly. I realized, my arrogance had gotten in my way all these years, assuming Adobe PhotoShop was the best editing program. I was wrong. I purchase Affinity Photo and Designer recently, complete satisfaction. Left Adobe in the rearview with no intent of going back. Affinity has the quality and capabilities of Ps, in my opinion. It's even easier to use on the Windows compared to Ps. Not to mention, at a fraction of the cost. For all the pros and casual photo editor's out there I can assure you Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer will do nothing less than impress. Best purchase I've made for my business in a long time. My wife and eldest daughter already use it to for their own photos and projects. Best bang for the buck. But not factoring in the awesome price, still absolutely astonishing capabilities and end-user performance. Best of luck to you all and sorry for the long review. I get excited when I win big lol.
No more Photoshop
I had been hesistant to cut off Adobe from taking my money each month but. I am so glad I did, I dove into Affinity Photo and Designer head first and forced myself to take the time to learn their UI. I have to say I am glad I did... I was worried that these apps wouldn't live up to their Adobe competition but I was surprised to see that the developers at Serif have put more though into their UI/UX. Speaking as someone who has developed software, their hard work shows. Don't listen to anyone out there who says this application isn't as good as Photoshop or others. Give it a try and take the time to actually learn how things work and you wont be disappointed. I am finding personally that Affinity is speeding up my workflow and making things less complicated. I especially love that they let me use a caculator on colors right within the app, this is super helpful. Also full screen preview of filters is brilliant. I also picked up the apps for iPad Pro and they are almost 99% the same as the desktop give or take one or two things. It is surprising that a bigger company like Adobe is still lagging bringing their desktop experience to iPad. I am now a true Affinity believer! Thanks Serif!
At the core of everything I do
I have come to love the entire Affinity suite of tools, and can't imagine not having all three apps, since they compliment, and work so seemlessly together. It is where I go first to accomplish everything I want to. I had used Adobe, and Macromedia, and Corel, and Microsoft; but it wasn't until Affinity's structure, workflow and apps that I really got it. I used to struggle with concepts, and I had difficulty comprehending artistic flows in the digital and vector worlds. I seemed dependent upon Corel to do it for me automatically; but try and modify and use a Corel drawing traced automatically; what a nightmare. Affinity gives me the tools to accomplish everything, and really understand why and how I'm doing it. Photoshop tutorials used to just baffle me; why are you doing that, and what the heck are you talking about. Since I jumped in to the Affinity line of Designer, Photo, and Publisher I feel more confident that I can figure out a solution to any task that I can readily take with me and utilize in an unlimited number of variations and scopes. And not to have to be bound by a binding and limiting subscription fee that holds your work hostage from you. I love the Affinity apps, workflow, and empowerment. Thank you.
I'm an amateur hoping to improve my photo and print editing skills. Retired, my wife and I travel a lot, so most of my photos are travel-related, landscapes, buildings, shorelines, sunsets, etc. In the month or so that I have intensively used this app I find that it is logically structured and intuitive in how the UI works. It’s pretty stable; I have to do something really unnatural to crash it like inadvertently trying to print a 200mb file in a 5x7 format…sigh. It nicely supports my attempts at establishing a consistent workflow. I can easily experiment with alternatives. I struggled trying to understand LR and finally gave up with the new licensing. What I like: 1) the desktop is well organized, logical. Context-appropriate windows work well. 2) adjustment tools are intuitive, easy to apply and back off. 3) nice layer management. 4) fantastic built in help function. it’s an operator’s manual, very complete, virtually a course in itself. 5) The app seems to support almost any image storage organization I choose. Nice.
Haven’t played around with the macros or special effects as yet. Just starting to shoot raw, so can't say anything about is raw format processing. Stay tuned
Great learning Curve, Easy to Transition From Adobe Photoshop
I'll start this by saying that I never feel motivated to leave reviews for things, unless im truly blown away by the product. I chose to take a photography class this year in high school, and in it we learned how to use Adobe Photoshop. I loved that program because I could edit my photos easily and the power/capability amazed me. While using it at school, it seemed like the perfect program. Then I looked at the cost. I just couldn't justify paying a mothly fee for a program on my computer. Expecially since by no means am I professional photographer. So then I came acorss Affinity Photo. The price was great so I figured I'd use an old gift card on it. Boy am I amazed. This program is pretty much identical to photoshop in the features that it has, but the UI is much more approachable and easy to use. Some things did take getting used to coming from photoshop, but I picked it up after about an hour of tinkering. Im sure that it will get much easier in a few days. Now, the main part of this app relating to switching from photoshop: the learning curve. Its almost the exact same as photoshop. It's extremely easy to pick up this program if you are transitioning from pjotoshop. The bottom is, if someone isn't paying for you to use photoshop (i.e. school, employer) then switch to affinity. The price is so good and there are no compromises that I've seen so far. Best $25 ive spent on my Pc.
