Review of Affinity Photo Windows

Recommended Posts

Greetings All,

 

I have been busy using Affinity Photo for the last month. I'm not an image editor neophyte. I've used, and continue to use, many image processing tools. Affinity is a welcome addition to my tools. Here are impressions.

Thank you for an excellent and very useful review with many valid observations not directly on Affinity Photo itself! The question of formats is important, but often forgotten. I have spent most of my Affinity time on Designer for Windows, but your review is a good introduction to Photo.

One important point missing from an otherwise excellent review is that although Affinity Photo "can also read and write a number of other important formats like Photoshop Elements PSDs" it can currently only read PSD text layers, not write them.

Substantial review. I really like the portions about file format philosophy. I worked in a fine art museum for 40 years. The goal was to keep both the object perfectly intact for 500 years, and the documentation. Non-proprietary formats are crucial for data storage. The Affinity line does appear to "play nice," as you say. Tho' even .tif(f) is not quite reliable.

Thanks everyone for your remarks. I am still exploring what Affinity adds to my tools. 

Thank you John for sharing this very informative review. I was pleased to read what you said about tiff files, it reaffirmed my trust in that particular file format. Thanks again.
