Quark recommends Affinity Photo!

I was just browsing the website for QuarkXpress 2017 ( and found that they actually recommend Affinity Photo as an accompanying application for image editing (FAQ section about "other tools for specialist tasks outside the Creative Cloud"). Screenshot attached. :o)

Very cool to see Affinity Photo listed for photo editing, but I wonder why Affinity Designer was not mentioned for illustration.


The only listed app for that for Mac users is Gravit Designer. I 'bought' it for free at the Mac App Store to try it out. At least to me it seems a lot like an unpolished version of AD -- quite a bit slower & less responsive, lacking refinements like double-clicking on a layer in the layers panel to zoom to it, & weirdly enough no Close item on the File menu.

Affinity Photo 1.6.6; Affinity Designer 1.6.0; AP for iPad 1.6.2 (but no supported iPad -- yet!)

macOS Sierra 10.12.6; iMac (27-inch, Late 2012); 2.9GHz i5 CPU; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M; 8GB RAM
