  1. I still use Aperture which I really like for 95% of my workflow but I realize that I need to replace it eventually. I simply do not like LR or Capture 1 and do not want to get stuck on a subscription based app. Apple Photos is simply junk and would never consider it. Ill wait until I see something I like and originally thought AP included a Dam, hopefully one is in the works.
  2. Thanks, I figured that out. I've since read here that a Dam is in the works and hope to see it released soon.
  3. Hi, I just installed a trial of Affinity Photo and it seems very capable, however, my existing photo libraries contain many thousands of images. I looked at a tutorial and in it an image was found and opened in a simple document file. Is that the only option? I had no clue about the scope of AP other than its editing functions and that it was considered an Adobe liberator but I think I can see where there is no file management system in this app. If I'm wrong please enlighten me but tell me how and where you import your files and what you do to catalog them. Thanks

    Introduce Yourself

    Hi, I'm Pete Dubaj a photographer. I'm looking with interest the new beta Affinity Photo. I use Apple Aperture as my primary file management & photo editing software. I was very disappointed when Apple announced they are ending support for Aperture. For me it was & is the best for my workflow. I especially like the editing brushes which I think are still the best. I've been using Affinity Photo for the past week and although I understand it is in beta and will not fret over obvious missing beta features and beta quirks. I would really like to see support for the mac mighty mouse or trackpad in being able to adjust the size of the brushes. Common now, to utilize an age old adobe keystroke seems a bit dated not to mention time consuming. I'm hoping this will be featured in the final release. I'm having to learn some of the nomenclature of AP so it's been somewhat slow in understanding all the features and functions. I will say I like the interface but would most likely week it if it was mine to redo. The brushes as somewhat troublesome to me in that I can't see the hardness. I think it should be like Aperture. Well I just realized this was supposed to be an intro not a critique so I'll end it here but look forward to seeing AP developed into a final version. Thanks, Pete http://www.peterdubajphotography.com
