    peterdanckwerts got a reaction from Jens Krebs in 1bit / bitmap mode colour format?   
    I work in book publishing and 1-bit TIFF files are essential. If you have a greyscale image, the printer's software will automatically apply a halftone screen, which degrades the image. This is really a sine qua non of a serious graphics program. PNG and GIF images are often rejected by printers.

    Of course database connectivity would be useful, but let's get Affinity Publisher out and handling the essential publishing functions first.

    InDesign CC (2015) is pretty good but the subscription is killing me.

    peterdanckwerts got a reaction from peter in Do you know what Adobe users are saying about AD   
    Fascinating discussion. I have an Adobe CC subscription which I really can't afford and a mid-2007 iMac (max 4GB RAM) which I can't afford to replace. I can't get Illustrator (which, like others, I consider inferior to Freehand) or Photoshop CC to work at all, while Affinity designer works very well on my decrepit machine. When Publisher becomes available, I'm hoping I'll be able to dump my Adobe subscription – but I may well go bust before then.
