Hi Stantonjulie and Welcome to the Forums,

 

Affinity Photo is a photo editing/Raw Development app and isn't a replacement for Photos, so you will still have access to Photos with Affinity installed.  Photos will continue to store and manage your images and you can use Affinity to edit them :)

@stokerg mentioned Photos but the same thing applies to iPhoto -- Affinity Photo is not a replacement for either Apple app.

 

You can access your iPhoto library from within Affinity Photo through the View menu > Media Browser item, or from the File menu > Open dialog sidebar Media > Photos item. For as long as iPhoto continues to work with OS X/macOS, you can set Affinity Photo as its default editor in the iPhoto Preferences > Advanced tab > "Edit Photos:" popup menu.


Affinity Photo 1.9.2, Affinity Designer 1.9.2, Affinity Publisher 1.9.2;  2020 iMac 27"; 3.8GHz i7, Radeon Pro 5700, 32GB RAM; macOS 10.15.7
Affinity Photo 
1.9.1.225 & Affinity Designer 1.9.1 (showing 1.9.7) for iPad; 6th Generation iPad 32 GB; Apple Pencil; iPadOS 14.4 (18D52)
