I use Power PDF myself.

For myself it isn't about editing or creating pdfs. It's about color conversion, profile conversion, ink density control and preflight control and fixing structural problems, etc.

There are only two products that do that (and/or plug-ins to one of those) short of really expensive full-blown RIP software.

But that is when it begins (the Summer).....I don't recall reading it has to be at the beginning, but just in Summer.... It could be released just the latest day of it. Meanwhile, you could send them all your dreams, everyday, in a letter, sealed with a kiss. Yes, it's going to be a cold, lonely summer. They'll hear your voice everywhere.

Realy...     are we realy discussing about a Product comparable to  Photoshop , that you can by for only about 50$ ?

This is so Cheap, that you can get affraid, Affinity won´t do it over the long run. 

I´d rather pay a bit more but to ruin this promising Product.

Right. This is why i asked. This is my point too.

In my opinion, Serif is doing a fantastic job with the Affinity products, i really hope that all developpers have a fair wage, and for this kind of product, i can offer more. but perhaps these products are not known enough on the market to set another price.

We'll see. Anyway, i'm really impatient, and right, you already have my money for Designer and Photo, and you will for Publisher ;-)

Like others, you can buy more than you need and we all can support Serif with that and with more participation here in the forum.

German Angst ist angesichts des Erfolgs und der gesteigerten Qualität keine Option, auch wenn man denken könnte, Affinity hätte etwas mit affraid zu tun. :D

But they might read about my despair

Too much stuff like “starting thingy and need a thingy” in the wrong place (sneak preview instead of “Introduce Yourself”) consumes time because moderators do not move that to the correct place.

I asked this too a while back, they said they can sell at this price and make a good profit back. I guess it is that since the cost is too low more people buy the software, I mean people like hobbyists out there who just want to have a good photo editing program or want to draw.

I’m sure that’s exactly right. If the number of copies that they can sell at $50 is double the number that they could sell at $80, it obviously makes sense for them to keep the price down.

Aandd...I did run out of likes, already xD.

I agree the last two posts....IMO, is also due to a particular point of view from this company. User and consumer friendly since eons. 

In general... a good meal is done when it is done. Not a minute before. Don't put pressure on the cook! :D

I wanted to learn vector drawing. $50 was manageable. $80 or more ... not so much as that was an all consuming desire. If they are reading this, I am sure I am not the only one who bought something I really didn't need because of reasonable pricing.

But if they up the price from £50 to £100 they only have to sell 1/2 the amount of copies, to users, to make the same profit and you still have the potential for some of the other 1/2 of the users to buy the product in the future if their economic circumstances change.  (Or reel some of them in on a Black Friday mega sale)

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now was our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

It's not ready yet, sorry. We are still adding features that users will expect to be included, even in a beta.

IMO ~ 50 (even some bucks above) is both a magic number for pure psychology (impulse purchase much more likely to happen!), but also, the kind of price that at the same time makes the product reachable for professionals (who could actually pay more, or most of  them) from the first world, but also from several other countries, not so privileged ones.  And from hobbyists AND students from many countries. This is crucial for large diffusion,  to really build a huge user base (key in this kind of applications), even more when you need to fight a  lot of resistance as there are established tools that dominate the market. IMO, need to keep a no-brainer advantage.
