Anyone in here is using Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer as an alternative to Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator?
I've read good reviews and the interface looks very clean.
Only 70$ each, one payment no monthly plan.
Any QBNers thoughts on it?
I did the beta then bought the first versions of both for the PC. They're good software, very feature-rich. I keep wanting to spend more time in them to really learn them, but I've been busy and haven't been able to devote the time (going on a couple years now). Photoshop and illustrator are just too familiar.
Well worth the money IMO. I did struggle with colour management recently trying to get aRGB content display right in the workspace, but that may be user error on my part.
Just a note on how they compare. photo is like a mix between photoshop and light room. If you do UI stuff in PS, you probably won't like the tools etc as much
Designer is like illustrator with PS built in. You can have vector layers and raster layers in the same document. Nice for UI design with available component libraries.
A few times I've missed specific tools (can't remember which now) but for the most part, if you know adobe software, you'll transition without much trouble.
