  1. Wow! I started this thread in 2018 and it's still active. Since then things have changed... I still would love to see Affinity develop a DAM solution. Since I'm only interested in DAM for photo images I tried many of the photo image focused products previously mentioned in this thread. ON1, Capture One, ACDSee and so on. I finally settled on Alien Skin Exposure 3 and am now on the most recent Exposure 5. Selling points for me are: No database; uses your folder structure (for me on a Mac) and side-cars Non-destructive editing of all the major photo formats, RAW, TIFF, JPEG, PSD
  2. Thanks Przemyslaw. I looked at digiKam but it seemed to be a bit buggy. I'm Ok with spending money if the product is stable, well-supported, and at least seems like it will be around for a while. Thus far I've downloaded trial copies of ON1, Luminar, Photo Supreme, NeoFinder, and Capture One Media Pro. I have a 2011 iMac so some people might have a different experience but here is my unscientific assessment of each product so far: ON1 - Lots of promise but buggy, slow and sometimes freezes up. Poor transition between editing tools. Nice cataloging. Does not support APh files. Creates
  3. Thanks Rocketdrive. You might want to look at Photo Supreme (https://www.idimager.com/) for managing files. I've not done a deep dive on that product but its on the list. And I agree with you on all the points you made. Update: My mistake Photo Supreme is only for images - it doesn't look like it handles the wide variety of files you use. NeoFinder (http://www.cdfinder.de/) might be worth a look.
  4. Thank you el.gato I should have added that I shoot only in RAW on both Canon and Nikon cameras, occasionally JPEG from other sources.
  5. I'd love to see an Affinity DAM offering so add my voice to the chorus for one. But I know it takes a while to develop a good product so I'm asking what other people are using in the meantime. What I'm doing now is using LR5 on a Mac for DAM, color balance, and light weight retouching, and jumping right into Affinity Photo to do anything else. I have close to 1Tb of images and while I don't need immediate access to everything its nice to search metadata when I need to find an old image. Fast and accurate rendering, bulk metadata update, decent search are high up on the list of needs.
  6. Purchased Photo and getting used to the tools. Right now I'm focusing on retraining my fingers after decades of Photoshop. Still liking what I see.
  7. Hello All, My name is Jon Revere and I've been involved with photography for over 42 years. Went digital when the Canon 10D came out and over time gave up the darkroom entirely. I've used Photoshop since v1.0 but I'm philosophically opposed to the software subscription model and was delighted to have discovered Affinity Photo this weekend. I've not purchased Photo as yet, only going through the tutorials to make sure I can do all the things I want to. So far I've been very pleased. When I get through the tutorials I anticipate becoming another very satisfied customer.
