Ditch the Adobe Creative Cloud subscription

Pros

As I occasionally use photo editing software in my field of work, for some of additional edits. Opening existing photoshop PSD files was a great WIN for me, and having a one off fairly priced piece of software was more appealing to me than getting sucked into the monthly subscription with Adobe Creative cloud. I have tried the accompanying iPad app and find it’s also nice to work with as well from desktop and iPad. Give it a go I don’t think you will be disappointed.

Cons

Some of the habits and keyboard shortcuts from Adobe Photoshop are hard to forget and learning a few different approaches to some things takes time to learn.

Reasons for switching to Affinity Photo

The cost. A monthly subscription in Adobe Creative Cloud was costly considering how much I used the software. So a reasonably low cost one off fee to use Affinity Photo was just the perfect switch for me. Give it a go, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Stunning Value for Money

Affinity Photo is a breeze to learn and use. I've been long-frustrated with Adobe's pricey subscription model and bloated Creative Cloud software that runs in the background. Affinity Photo released me from this yolk; it launches quickly, and I got it on sale with Affinity Designer (vector editor) for only $79 CANADIAN. Wow.

Pros

Affinity Photo gives Adobe Photoshop a real run for its money. It can do everything that PS can do, and the interface is almost identical, so longtime users won't find it difficult to switch. And there's no expensive subscription. A perpetual license costs the same as 1-2 months of Adobe CC!

Cons

There are some crucial keyboard/mouse differences that will cause confusion for most Adobe users, and the default text is just too small on Retina monitors.

Reasons for choosing Affinity Photo

I found Pixelmator slightly more confusing.

Reasons for switching to Affinity Photo

Adobe is expensive and bloated. Affinity Photo is quick and light.

Cheap and effective solution to editing RAW and PSD files

Had a great experience with Affinity I still use it from time to time for my marketing graphics for my car dealership. Definitely one of my favorite tools in my toolbox.

Pros

As stated in the title it is a cheap and effective way to edit RAW and PSD files on the go without paying for adobes monthly subscription fees. I like how it is customizable toolbars and you can setup shortcuts to hop to features you need to us. It runs very smooth on my desktop and laptop with mid-grade specs.

Cons

I feel some of the features are a bit outdated compared to photoshop, it takes a bit longer to do the same thing I could do in gimp/adobe.

Affinity Photo: The Best Photo Editing Software You'll Ever Use

I really enjoyed using Affinity Photo. The interface was easy to learn and the features were very versatile. I was able to easily improve the quality of my photos and add personal touches with ease. I would definitely recommend this software to anyone looking for an easy-to-use photo editor.

Pros

Affinity Photo is a powerful photo editing software that has everything you need to get the most out of your photos. Whether you're a beginner or a pro, you'll love the easy-to-use interface and the wide range of features. And the low price, you just buy it once!

Cons

While I really like the wide range of features and easy-to-use interface, I didn't like that there wasn't a built-in way to create photo collages. It would be great if there was an easier way to combine several photos into one cohesive image. But with some easy tutorials you can make these really fast!

Reasons for switching to Affinity Photo

I made the switch from Adobe Photoshop because Affinity Photo is much more affordable and has a wide range of features that are equally as powerful as Photoshop. Affinity Photo is also much more user-friendly, making it a great choice for beginners or pros alike.

Top class image editing tool for professional and home users

Affinity photo is powerful professional image editing software. Editing is very fast. It work on Windows and Mac platform, but it work on iPad too, which is excellent possibility. Every filter, effect, tool has numerous options for adjusting. There is no idea which you cannot complete with this extraordinary image editing tool. With integrated color profiles, RGB and CMYK, you can easily deliver your photos for online, to photograph shop or to press.

Pros

Speed and integration with Affinity Publisher - DTP tool, and Affinity Designer - vector illustration tool. Affinity Photo use non-destructive image editing and it is capable to work with RAW image format. This tool is everything you need for RGB and CMYK image manipulation.

Cons

Affinity Photo has no image organizing tools, so you cannot organize and manage your image collection. It may be problem for photographers with large image library. Preview and image selection from disk or cloud storage may be time consuming task.

Reasons for choosing Affinity Photo

Speed, price and veratility of tools, Adobe Photo has the best mix of all.

Reasons for switching to Affinity Photo

I have no need for every Photoshop tools. And a price of Adobe suite is too high compared to Affinity suite price, and both do the same job with the same professional quality.
