  1. Differences as well as similarities. We are living in those times where Apple sued a coffeehouse for using this Logo: https://www.sueddeutsche.de/wirtschaft/computerkonzern-verklagt-bonner-cafe-wehe-sie-veraeppeln-apples-apfel-1.1173840 Also plenty differences in my opinion.
  2. May I mention that the new Logo pretty much reminds me of a German property market? https://www.hornbach.de Feels like having their App sitting in my dock :-)

    Agreed. Should be able to do so via profiles e.g. Many reason like several workstations, send in to repair, setting up the OS again, getting a new machine...
  4. True. Serif knows that too but i prefer them to stay a small team and take their time. "Unfortunately" Publisher got the priority though I am also waiting for that for Book design/layout.
  5. Not only Adobe but also Skylum which announced to have their DAM ready this year. As they said to have it ready last year. But still from what I am hearing it seems that they took a huge step forward to the actual release. Regarding sensei. I don't want to have my pictures in a cloud and I don't want to have any AI being able to work through my stuff. Privacy is what matters. Unfortunately that's something that many people don't rely on...
  6. Not sure about that. They may have learned from the past that announcing something too early bites themself in regards of meeting timeframes. My bets are on 2019, though that depends on how long publisher will stay in beta/take until it's ready which is the same for the 1.7 versions of Designer and Photo.
  7. They are developing a tool for that (a DAM, Digital Asset Management), though it is still unknown how feature rich this will be. Also the timeframe for a release is unknown, though it is known that affinity publisher will come first, so that the core range photo, designer and publisher will be completed first. This makes absolutely sense though many people are waiting for a DAM too, as there aren't that many good alternatives out there. Long story short: You are not the only one having a hard time to decide if it is worth it to spend money on something else or save the money for the Affinity DAM as there is no given timeframe for that.
  8. That may be the case. Still a missed chance though as the competition (Skylum) doesn't sleep: http://www.photokina.de/aussteller-und-produkte/ausstellerverzeichnis/ausstellerverzeichnis.php?fw_goto=aussteller/details&&kid=0042016167&values={"stichwort"%3A""%2C"start"%3A380}
  9. Many people are waiting patiently for that one. Serif won't announce a release date until it's nearly ready, which is okay. Though an update on that matter would be more than welcome.
  10. @sgbotsford Well it is up to you to judge about that. I'm only just now starting to learn to code. Agree with all four of your points though. All those filter kids and so called influencers don't make for a growing market for professional software. Still the professional market would be big enough if there were alternatives. And if more photographers would know/trust those alternatives. We will see what the time is up to.
  11. All those points though... Does explain why a) There isn't the perfect solution and b) Why it takes so long, to build something stable (Not to mention the small team Serif has and the other projects, that they were working on) However point a) doesn't make one more patient though point b) should do that.
  12. No problem, found my old one from years ago. Still sucks that one day you would need to hire an accountant to keep all those stuff organized. Yes, PW-Manager, but could be so much easier if they hadn't such a high desire for all of the customers info. But that's another story.
  13. That's sad. Would have been a great chance for Serif. However, did you know that Photokina ist about to change their usual rhythm from being every 2nd year in September to being every year in May beginning as soon as next year? You guys should take that into consideration for the future as it is the world's leading photo exhibition. And hey, it's just a 1 1/2 hour flight from Manchester for example. Thanks for the reply though.
  14. Oh right, I remember why I don't like that company. Just want to use their app. Sick of having to have an account for that purpose. Why ist life on the Affinity Side of the world so much easier?
