(I'd like to offer my apologies to MBd because it seems that some of the Affinity team have become a little 'over-enthusiastic' and have changed their descriptions to better reflect them... or so they imagine?)

 

Note to everyone else: Don't assume that MBd wrote the content you're seeing and is being flippant or derogatory in any way, his original post was just the facts, it has since been 'improved' by the team members themselves!  :ph34r:

no apologies as long as your team is fine with it ;)

 

was an incredible amusement to read it last evening and now again  :D LOL

I´m giving Andy a hard time with feature requests as well so if anyone deserves to mess with my posts, it´s him  :lol:

And where can we get your T-shirt, Matt?  :)

definitely  :D  :wub:

or an Affinity Cover/ Skin for the MacBook  :) (although one could probably make one on some internet sides individually)

Ha! My t-shirt was one they gave me to wear when we attended The Photography Show at the NEC earlier this year - I just happened to be wearing it on the day the photographer came around and now it looks like I always happen to dress in large Affinity logos!

 

I'm actually tempted to get some made up myself with a slightly more subtle logo size - and (oh my word) you haven't seen the back of that t-shirt - if there was ever any doubt where I work, the back of the t-shirt would spell it out in humungous AFFINITY writing! (not the most subtle of designs, but obviously effective to wear at a show...)

 

If I decide to get some made, I'll see how much extra it would cost me for a few more added to the order at the same time... :)

Rather late in the day, I'd like to thank each and every member of the team for their great support in this forum.

They are well & truly unsurpassed !!!!

 

Thanks, guys (and girls ??)  !!!  :wub:

Kate M is definitely a girl and I think she is missing in my initial post

 

Your original post includes this:

 

Ash, Neil, Kate M, acapstick, Dale (working on the presentation of Affinity)

 

Neil wasn't initially on that list, but Kate was already there when I first saw it.

I just need to ask, can't avoid it anymore, it was going to happen no matter what...

 

Why so many cats and dogs ?  All the avatar, and just clicked that link and bam, even more cats.... I like cats and dogs, not an issue...

 

(btw, my avatar is not a wink ('CAT' function), Is one I made and use since long for some forums, from an old Spectrum 48k photo, as was my first computer (together with  the neighbour's XT ). I'm that young. )

just to put the 300 000 sold copies of AD and AP for mac combined into perspective

 

it is indeed quite impressive

 

another App I´m currently using frequently is PDF Expert for Mac and iOS which is pretty essential to me and luckily they also have got a very good customer support.

- they recently pushed a message that they sold 50 000 copies

https://pdfexpert.com/blog/2016/11/pdf-expert-on-the-mac-one-year-journey-giveaway-inside/?mc_cid=1839755cc2&mc_eid=fc23ae9604

 

I would have thought that they would sell more copies. But maybe their strong side is iOS and obviously Preview on mac is preinstalled and not bad either.

if you ask why I bought the app, it´s because it can display multiple files next to each other like browser tabs, insert links, encrypt PDF and looks nice overall

T- shirt looks amazing  :wub: thanks so much  :)

So I guess you did not check out the new app unveiled yesterday on the App Store by the Scandinavian startup Sloof? They claim their Lirpa app will compete head to head with Affinity, Adobe, et al, mirroring all their functions in a low priced, all-in-one app. It is said to be backwards compatible with all previous file formats & its tiny file size is intended to help reverse the trend to ever more bloated apps.

Three clues? I spotted one, or possibly two, in "Sloof Lirpa", but what else is there? :unsure:

Hooray for Affinity Photo and for every single person working on it. At last a programme that is serious enough to let me slough off of the Adobe shackles.

 

Hooray also for all the enthusiasts out there who contribute and make this a dynamic and friendly community.

Eh? Is this something to do with the time of year?

"Sloof Lirpa" was not a clue. The three clues were the words mirroring, backwards, & reverse; all hints about the nature of the company + product name.

 

A little lame I admit, but don't blame me. This sort of thing has been around for many decades. Several technical magazines featured articles about the groundbreaking work of a Dr. (or Professor, I forget which) Loof Lirpa in the 1980's at this time of the year, usually with some similar clue buried somewhere in the text.

Oh, I see! Too subtle for me, I'm afraid. :(

Yup. Got me too. Amazing there's a person called Sloof Lirfa. Or maybe that's a con too.

 

Gullible is my middle name.
