Hi Team,


  I am looking to move from Photoshop to Affinity Photo. I wanted to know see the capability of Affinity photo before switching the same


In Photoshop, I used to sharpen the subject by placing it in its own layer and applying Smart sharpen to apply sharpening in varying Amounts. I always want to sharpen the image after resizing the images as sharpening Amount  always depended on the size of the Image.


Can you let me know any such options are available in Affinity Photo ?

In Affinity Photo you can use the non destructive New Live Filter Layer

There are a number of options.  If you're shooting in RAW you can apply sharpening in the Develop module - I rarely use this as I prefer to be selective about what parts of the image are sharpened.  The live filter layers have unsharp masking, high pass filtering and clarity - these are all non-destructive. There's also a sharpening filter and a sharpening brush, but I rarely use them.
