Thank you for answering my question. I switched to Affinity Photo because I like the freedom from paying monthly fees to Adobe. I own a legal copy of Adobe Photoshop CS3 and after I reformatted my HD and trying to reinstall the program; Adobe will not let me activate it. They discontinued their phone support for non- subscription programs. I feel cheated because I’ve been paying for Photoshop upgrades for years. As long Affinity Photo remains free of monthly charges, it will have my loyalty forever, since I can do faster and better everything I need to do with my photo editing.
