  1. Good proposal, firstdefence. For me, 20-30 hours would me more than enough for a trial. With frequent releases and trial resets, someone may comfortably use it for free for a long, long time, so it's ok if Serif decides to limit it in days as well, but please not under let say 45 days.
  2. I think that trial period for Affinity Photo needs to be longer. In a 10 days period I only found 3-4 hours to look into the software and for me it's far from enough to bring the decision for purchase. I only found that it's not fully compatible with Google NIK Collection (Viveza does not work properly), it does not have full screen preview, Elements Organizer does not recognize native Affinity format... On the the other hand, it looks like I can find a lot more usable controls over the Elements, such as HSL filter, which really made me happy! I just started familiarizing with Affinity masks, and wanted to finalize first image in Affinity Photo, when the trial expired ..... I have no other option but to wait for the next release and a reset of the trial .. I believe that I am not the only one who's too busy in daily routines to concentrate the trial scope in such a short period. (I don't like money back guarantee, as suggested by carl123. Normally I never come back to the seller where I had to use this.)
  3. I am checking a trial version of Affinity Photo on Windows 7. I immediately realized that I am missing a full screen preview mode. Every now and then during the edit I am used to quickly switch to a full screen, so to preview my work and escape back to continue editing. In a full screen mode I would expect an easy option to quickly zoom to 100% and back, as well as to compare "before" and "after" images. I think that many Windows photo editors support this function, such as Capture NX-D, Photoshop, Elements ...

    Introduce Yourself

    Hello, My nickname is Miljac. I am a photo amateur for many years, mainly dealing with the landscapes and travel photos. I was a faithful user of the Elements Photoshop & Organizer for a long time. But, I don't like the development direction of this suite any more and I have a feeling that now I want to try something more powerful. Further, I don't like the pricing model of the Adobe CC, so in a search for a worthy replacement - I am here! :-) I am still testing how could Affinity Photo fit into my current workflow.
