I have downloaded the trial version and spent a few hours testing it. I expect that it will replace my Photoshop CS5 since I hate subscription plans and sending my info to a cloud.
I enclose a real lousy picture scanned from an old negative. I would like to see a good filter that - at least - can delete all the narrow scratches. I takes too long time to use e.g. the healing bush.
And I promise I will buy Affinity Photo as soon as you publish a pdf manual. I do not like Help menus and Video Tutorials take far too much time and are also linear in nature, while a pdf file can be accessed anywhere in an instant. Although I have to admit that your video tutorials are good!
