  1. Thanks very much EdK, I am enjoying and learning a great deal from your posts.
  2. Hello, my name is Chris Nicol. I have been a Photographer and Graphic Designer since the 1970's. I graduated in Graphics in 1973 from Ravensbourne College of Art and Design in Bromley, Kent. My career was in Photography and Graphics/Illustration (mostly before the advent of Computer technology) in London, New Zealand and Yorkshire. I am now retired and live with my wife in a peaceful cottage in rural Kent. I have been using Serifs' software since the 1990's, when I was unfortunately using a Windows computer! Since then I have graduated to Macs. I bought my first one in 2008, a MacBook Pro 17", in New Zealand where I was spending a 6 month vocation with my wife, photographing the beautiful scenery of both the North and South Islands. At the time I was using Photoshop and the first incarnation of Aperture. Since then I have continued to use Aperture right up to the present day, but I am only too aware that it is no longer being developed by Apple. I started using Affinity Photo last year, when I also bought my iMac 27" (to edit my catalogue of 50,000 photographs) and have now given up on Adobe and Photoshop, as I do not like their philosophy either as a company or their new software. I have travelled for several years, since my second visit to NZ, to Greece for 6 months, Costa Rica for 6 months and the USA for 6 months also. All the time I was photographing these wonderful places, I was looking for a piece of software apart from Photoshop that could compliment Aperture. I have now found it in Affinity Photo! My only hope is that Serif will soon produce DAM software to compliment Affinity Photo, before Aperture is finally redundant!
  3. There is an App, External Editors for Photos, that allows full access to Affinity Photo via the Mac Photos App. It also allows access to the Nik Collection, which is a very interesting development, as well as any other Photo Editing or Display Apps on my iMac. It would be great if an App for 'External Editors for Affinity Photo' could be developed.
