Does AffinityPhoto have a Digital Asset Manager similar to Lightroom, or even like Adobe Bridge in Photoshop 6, and if not is there any plan for one now that Lightroom is going down the rental path along with Photoshop?

I read the first thread and there were references to DigiKam. Is this compatible with Affinity Photo? It wasn't clear from the discussion.

in one they were working on for a release early 2016, in another they are working for a publisher replacement first, in a last one, they are not working on a DAM.

so best bet is to get photomechanic for fast culling and cataloging/viewing your images. maybe there will be one for 2020 ^_^

Lr, ON1, Capture One has one and Luminar is coming with one as well, so these are also some option. Alienskin, Paintshop Pro and ACDSee have image browser?

Serif produced their own DAM that they gave away with PhotoPlus 8 (I think that's the version I got my copy with) called PhotoStack.

It has some limitations but it is fast and I found it surprisingly good, thought it's not the same as LR.

It supports the following formats:
