  1. AffinityAppMan

    Can anyone recommend an acrobat pro alternative?

    Check out PDF Elements on the Mac. I have been using it for the last couple of years and I am very happy with it. https://pdf.wondershare.com

    Affinity Photo for iPad (1.6.10 - Beta)

    I’ll look into it
  3. This is what Major UPGRADES are for. If the company does a good job with a NEW VERSION, we pay to support the efforts. I don't like the idea of a FORCED subscription, especially if I don't like what they have done with the new version. This can also make the companies LAZY by not making improvements to the software since they would already be getting paid no matter what. I am happy to pay for Major NEW GOOD UPGRADES , but NOT for forced subscriptions.
  4. Sweet!!! It's ready on my iPad for some fun today!!!

    Affinity Publisher - Sneak Preview

    This is why SUBSCRIPTION based software sucks! I will never support a company that uses the subscription model. We need to say NO to subscriptions by voting with our wallets and not supporting these subscription companies. Don't subscribe to their software if there is a good alternative for you. I am happy to say that my business has been subscription free for over two years now and I don't miss the subscription software. We still get the job done and our customers are very happy.

  7. I don't think Macromedia is around anymore. Adobe bought them out.
  8. Yes, we need to get Serif products into schools as well. I am going to start teaching Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo so that students know these products are available and that Adobe is not the only game in town. A lot of students have been brain watched into thinking that Adobe is always the way to go. That used to be the case, but not anymore and they need to learn this. I am also telling all my clients and designer friends about the Serif products and a lot of them have stopped using Adobe products and are on Serif software now. Its just a matter of time before Serif software gains more popularity and there is more awareness out there. We just need to keep spreading the word. When a company like Serif works hard in providing great software without monthly payments, we need to support that so that they always have the resources to keep growing and making the products better. This can only help all of us in the business. Cheers!
  9. Adobe can only be monopolistic if we let them. The solution is not to support their products, and the scam of the forced monthly subscriptions, by not using their software. Adobe became monopolistic because a lot of people made their products the main products to use by buying them. This is not the case anymore ( since we have good alternatives ) and we can change this. We can make OTHER software be the standard by supporting the developers and educating other about other good Adobe alternatives. Serif is making this possible and that is good for the industry. Is amazing how many people still think that Adobe is the only game in town, because they don't know about Affinity Photo or Designer. ( and other software for the matter ).
  10. Thank you gdenby. I'll try it out.
  11. Greetings, I just found out that the "NeoFinder DAM Tool" now Supports Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer Files. Has anyone heard of this or tried this product? https://www.cdfinder.de Cheers!
  12. When someone says that Serif lost their vision, they don't know what they are talking about. Serif is constantly innovating and making their products better every single day. The way the came up with software that is giving Adobe a run for their money, is nothing but brilliant. I am looking forward to what Serif will bring to the table in the future. I don't think they are going anywhere. AP for the iPad is also the BEST photo app on iOS. No one has been able to do this. I already know a lot of people that have been able to leave the Adobe forced subscription model, thanks to AD and AP. Affinity Publisher is only going help more people make the move. So, NO, Serif has not lost their vision. They are doing a great job. ( Adobe is going to lose a lot of customers as time goes by ).
  13. Serif is amazing! That's for sure.
  14. I am interested in doing this as well
