Hi there,


i just saw Affinity on twitter and have a few questions. So, at the moment i'm working with Krita (maybe somebody knows it) and i'm quite happy with it so far. But it is also a bit slow and sluggish to use sometimes.

I'm working with low resolutions and need accurate pixel editing (which Photoshop, for example, doesn't offer. at least a couple years ago, when i last tried it). I also need support for my wacom  tablet. Would Affinity be a good choice for me?


I would try it myself, but i'm currently not at home and only have a linux laptop with me. So i'm just asking here if i should keep being interested ;)


Thanks :)

Other forum members do lots more pixel work than I. You might want to look at the "Show us your work" section of the forum for samples of what can be done.


Note, neither Photo or Designer are focused on being dedicated "paint" programs like Krita. But there are some good tools.


I mostly do vector work, and am currently working on a 5K x 3K desktop image. I just opened it up, and added some 1 pixel wide line work to one of the vectors. I had to be zoomed in 81000% in order to make a 16 x 16 px drawing, each pixel a different color. Not even visible at 100% zoom, and only a dot at 150%. So I guess Designer nicely handles high resolution, and pixel level precision.
