ENORMOUS KUDOS (yes, I'm shouting, the occasion needs it ! )   to Affinitytutorials and Affinity Jack.

 

That all is way beyond amazing. This is how you help an extremely good and smart suite of applications in growing and spreading.

 

That story reminds me a real lot -even a bit painfully-   to certain LOVABLE meetings with a bunch of illustrators which I deeply -very much-  respected, loved and for whom had (have) great admiration (they admired me too, huh... :D), in my country. It was not as organized and well driven as yours, but was really good, too. We also met in an online community and from there went to also expand it offline. At some point the community broke, mainly as the site, which was the central nerve of communication kind of got broken. I had to cease all activities too, due to life duties. But I am aware several of the most solid friendships from there yet stand today, very current. So, I guess, a pair of applications or as was our case, the joy that certain activity (illustration, photography, design, etd) gives you (or simply the joint for sharing same freelance profession) can go a long way, even if just started on inet (I always value higher direct RL relations, but it's became clear to me that internet "can" be a good way to start really good stuff. Hey, not all has to be bad or crappy on the internet....)

 

Great kudos, I had no idea this all existed...  And long life to it !

Hi Everyone,

 

I could write how great Affinity is, and that after all these years (starting with photoshop 4) I'm switching because I believe affinity is better... 

 

Sorry starting over, you really made a magnificent product

 

Thanks.

 

Ronny

Hiya! I'm Eeva from Finland. I've been working as graphic designer for 16 years and most of it as freelancer. I recently changed all my tools from Adobe to Affinity as the versions I had were getting old (CS4) and I didn't afford to update to the latest versions. Also it would have required total update of my hardware which I wasn't too keen on doing so I was more than happy when I found out about Affinity's tools. One happy camper over here :)

Hello all! I am Erik from Antwerp, Belgium.
I am a fine-art painter but prefer to call myself a 'creator of images' as I also do photography and photomanipulation and even digital sculpting in ZBrush.
I  use Photoshop CS5, which I know quite well, but for which I never saw a reason to upgrade. In fact: I use it less and less because Krita is better for painting and drawing, and Capture One is perfect for my RAW files.
Earlier today I got a mail from a friend, mentioning Affinity. After watching a few video overviews and tutorials, I grasped this was what I would have liked Photoshop to become, and purchased my license immediately.
I really look forward to use it and team it with Capture One. Really.
For those interested: I am on a home-built i7 Windows 7 Pro machine.

Hi I'm PJ from Canada.  Been on this site for quite awhile but have not introduced myself.  I am a real fan of Affinity products and this great group of conscientious developers.

I talk about Affinity Photo all the time when I go into my local camera shop, the Apple Store, in fact anywhere where people are interested in photography. 

 

I have a really big pet peeve that I would like to mention.  I dislike people that seem to be trolls for 'other' products that come to this blog to comment on how lousy Affinity apps are. 

I have at times commented about this behaviour as I do not think that this behaviour is appropriate. 

 

I was really tired of the tactics of Adobe, their money grab subscriptions, and their desire to govern what I do in my life.  Even though I own standalone LR6, the tactics to govern this product really angered me.  

 

I did not feel the need to have this product, LR6, on my new MacBook Pro. To compensate for the loss of catalogue, I use Capture One Pro until serif develops one for their apps.  

 

But I was surprised the other day when I opened the Media Viewer to see that I could load the entire contents of one of my photo stores into the AP's Media Browser, not there yet but what a great improvement.  Check it out.

 

One question, not for me but for those dissatisfied commenter, how can they delete themselves from this forum?

Hello, my name is Varg and I'm 33 years from the capitol Oslo of Norway. An almost total beginner with graphic design, but my aim is to master both Photo and Designer, and the upcoming Publisher. Will use them for design needs for personal creative projects, (Like design material for film projects) and aim for other professional goals in the future. I've touched upon Photoshop far back, and recently making a quick draft of a movie poster, but I'm not so familiarized with it that it's any problem switching to Affinity. 

​I'm psyched.

I don't think it's possible... Is only doable in certain forums / communities out there.....

Anyway, why do they'd want to do so ? I mean, by themselves...

Even in the places where that is possible, the posted content does not typically auto-delete... 

 

Anyway, my 2c, don't pay attention to trolls, That's what they'd want (to get attention) . Is fine... We're all used to this kind of noise on inet... ;). I "sometimes" (yeah, very often) reply to posts that sound a bit troll-ish from start, but if at some point it gets too evident is best to leave 'em alone with their shouting... :D

 

I mean, one can reply, but not take them too seriously... Is often people having a bad day or sth. The general admins advice in every community tho is not replying to those, no "feeding the troll". But yeah. I tend to reply...

 

I have indeed seen cases of clearly people paid or just very fan of some competitor product and trash Affinity, and "casually" end up mentioning (trying to hide it, in a poor attempt of doing so) their fav tool after all the affinity bashing. Don't worry, they tend to be so ridiculously obvious, that I doubt they get to fool a single member or visitor...

Hi. Sunil Hoon. India.

Oh.53

Thought I'd mention my age, cos that's the reason I'm here in this Affinity forum.🤗

Too old to hunch over a laptop now. So, absolutely savoring the ease and elegance and breadth of Affinity photo on the iPad.

Bye bye Adobe.

Wow.Serif.👏

Really ? I was too think we people over 40 are more PC/Mac, desktop people (I certainly am...) rather than phones/tablets users....

Poking around the forums as I'm a newbie to the Affinity line. Just retired, entering the publishing world full time now and getting off the Adobe carousel. Now wouldn't you know it? Affinity Publisher is getting ready to come out. I have been a heavy user of InDesign and would dearly love to read some news from Affinity on the latest Publisher status. Many are salivating its imminent arrival, but I am willing to wait until the baker says rise! Yet, I am still a curious cat and would like to hear any Publisher updates. I must say, overall, although I am indeed a newbie, I certainly feel an affinity for Affinity will only grow. Thanks, Wolf Wallis

Hi

I'm Dave Atkinson, a lapsed Serif user but now back on the game with Affinity Photo. Been sitting for hours watching the tuts on the Tube and following along on the old (no so, just upgraded) desktop. I'm coming to the end of an Adobe contract and probably will not renew, AP is just so good. Would love to be able to work dual monitors though.

 

regards
