Testing Affinity

Recommended Posts



I think the number is now over 31,000 actual individual people have signed up to the beta test - not all will be active users though, obviously. Pretty good going for an app nobody had heard of a few months ago! ;)

Four years. How did Affinity team keep that under their hat, for so long? That couldn't have been easy.


Mind you, the main question is this: How many people are going to leave Adobe's cloud? A few/a trickle/a shower/a downpour/a deluge/a torrent etc. That got me thinking...


• ADOBE (noun)

  The noun ADOBE has 2 senses:

1. the clay from which adobe bricks are made
2. sun-dried brick; used in hot dry climates

These bricks don't like heavy rain, do they?


The other question is this:


How many people are testing Adobe, not for creativity...but affordability. One thing is for sure though. By the time Affinity's photo software is beta released, Affinity's reputation will be growing and it won't be Photoshop that will feel threatened, there is Lightroom and Elements, that will also see some sort of exodus - as these two products are aimed at the mass market.


Ooh, to be a fly on the wall in Adobe's board room next week. Can't wait: buzzzzzzzz! :ph34r:


Matt, Tony and the rest of the team..GOOD LUCK NEXT WEEK!
