I am a windows user. The Affinity designer beta arrived just in time. For a variety of reasons, I had become disatisfied with the Serif management systems such as organiser and photostack, and as I started using raw for shooting photos, I was advised to use photoshop elements. This turned out to be very satisfactory, and I have found that the photoshop elements organiser functions very well. Indeed I was at the point of considering upgrading to Lightroom when I was mailed about Affinity. Even the Windows Beta of Designer is exciting, and I have looked at the Mac tutorials on Affinity photo. I am impatient to try that too. But I understand that it is intended that there will be an effective Data Asset Management system. It is major operation to convert a large library of images (I have about 20000) So I hope that the Serif Affinity DAM will have the following features as a minimum. 1: Effective automatic stacking of images, especially adjusted versions of the same image (with copy taking only the top one, but move taking the whole stack) 2: Face recognition and marking 3: Mapping of photo locations 4: Event grouping 5: Tagging of images. 6: Effective backup (full and incremental) 7: The ability to import catalogs from other systems, especially Adobe standards, including transporting the features listed above. I am very amateur, though my flickr site will shortly pass 1 million hits. I am sure that these features and many more required by professionals have already been included in the spec, but I thought it worth putting my views across. Apart from using PS Elements to process Raw Images, I have been a loyal Serif user of the mainstream Plus products produced by Serif, including Photo-, Draw-, Web-, Page- and Movie-, Plus. Affinity has stopped me deserting, and I cannot wait to see the New Affinity products for Windows as they emerge. Regards Graham Rabbitts
