I am considering changing my workflow based on Adobe “Bridge + Camera Raw + Photoshop” on Windows to another product and I was pointed to Affinity Photo.
Before trying I would like to check if this makes sense at.
So if possible I would like to profit from your experience to help me make a start on some questions to see if this a road worth pursuing for me.
I use Bridge for photo selection, Camera Raw for work on photos and Photoshop for refined work and printing (with color management).
Can I do these with Affinity?
Can Affinity support non-destructive workflow?
Does Affinity support colors management and preview with other color profiles?
How does it manage printing? Can I print letting Affinity manage color profiles as I do in Photoshop?
Can Affinity read and use my existing CR2 files with the companion XMP file generated by Adobe Camera Raw (these XMP files contain not only the IPTC data, but also the work on the photo I did with Camera Raw)
Can Affinity read the Photoshop PSD files? I use layers layer masks and have Smart Objects embedded.
Many thanks for your patience and help.
