Affinity in Deutschland

Recommended Posts

Ich möchte einmal etwas darüber sagen, wie die Affinity Suite in Deutschland wahrgenommen wird.

Die meisten öffentlichen Artikel und Beiträge von Blogs und Software Rezensionen loben die Suite über alle Maßen. Es wird aus meiner Sicht aber viel zu wenig über den Publisher und Designer berichtet. Was mit Affinity Photo ist, kann ich nicht sagen, da ich mich damit weniger beschäftige. Es gibt zwar einige Online-Kurse und viele YouTube Videos über die Handhabung der Software, für mich fehlen allerdings dann doch Berichte in den einschlägig bekannten Fachmagazinen. Ich erinnere mich, dass einmal gesagt wurde, dass der deutsche Markt der drittgrößte für Serif ist. Ich bin der Meinung, dass die Firma Serif selbst, aber auch wir Anwender, viel mehr für eine größere Verbreitung tun sollten. Ich persönlich sehe bei Facebook viele Anwender, die sich jedes Mal darüber freuen, wenn mal wieder mit Hilfe eine Sonderaktion die Software regelrecht "verschenkt" wird. Das tut der Affinity Suite meines Erachtens nicht gut!

Ich versuche mit meinem Projekt MAGAZIN62 etwas für die Verbreitung der Affinity Suite zu tun, weil ich mehr als überzeugt davon bin, dass hier starke Anwendungen einen größeren Bekanntheitsgrad verdient haben. Software, die in regelmäßigen Abständen viel zu billig angeboten wird, wird aber schnell am Markt als "Spielzeug" abgetan.

Liebe Freunde von Serif - warum bietet Ihr die Affinity Suite nicht kostengünstig an unseren Medienschulen an? Vielleicht kann man dazu auch Lernmaterial bereitstellen.... es ist nur eine Idee.

I would like to say something about how the Affinity Suite is perceived in Germany.

Most public articles and posts from blogs and software reviews praise the suite beyond measure. In my opinion, however, far too little is reported about the publisher and designer. I can't say what about Affinity Photo because I'm less concerned with it. There are some online courses and many YouTube videos about how to use the software, but for me there are no reports in the relevant specialist magazines. I remember once it was said that the German market is the third largest for Serif. I am of the opinion that Serif itself, as well as us users, should do a lot more to spread the word. I personally see many users on Facebook who are happy every time when the software is "given away" with the help of a special offer. In my opinion, that's not good for the Affinity Suite!

With my MAGAZIN62 project, I am trying to do something to spread the Affinity Suite, because I am more than convinced that strong applications here deserve greater awareness. Software that is offered far too cheaply at regular intervals is quickly dismissed on the market as a "toy".

Dear friends of Serif - why don't you offer the Affinity Suite at our media schools at a reasonable price? Maybe you can also provide learning material ... it's just an idea.

On the other hand, it can ensure greater distribution among users - who can be customers of various DTP studios and print-shops, to which they can put pressure for greater Affinity support and thus its expansion among professionals.
