Silly (?) question about capability of Affinity

Recommended Posts



I'm waiting for Windows beta of Affinity and I really hoping that this software will be able to replace my Photoshop and Illustrator. Untill can't try it for myself I'm asking a question which could help me decide it is worth to no renew my CC subscription: Do the Affinity can replace Photoshop in something like in this tutorial: http://design.tutsplus.com/tutorials/create-a-baseball-inspired-text-effect-in-photoshop--psd-16077? I mean repeating steps by using sort of Affinity tools (like texturing, using custom brushes etc.), not necessary final effect. It is just an example but maybe this could give me a overall view.


Affinity Photo is for dealing with photos, Designer is for vectors and I'm wondering can I do something between.


Greetings and sorry for my english

Hi enzen, welcome to the forum.


Both our apps have a little overlap in that Affinity Designer is mainly vector with some raster tools and Affinity Photo is mainly image editing with some vector tools, but for the effect you want to achieve, with the stitching, texture etc I would recommend Affinity Designer.


In that one app you can use all the techniques you need, which may mean making a custom brush or custom texture but it's all certainly possible.
