I just downloaded the 10-day trial. I think that time may be a bit short but I'm working with it.
My question is concerning supported file types. Does Affinity support FITS format? Flexible Image Transport System (FITS) is an open standard defining a digital file format useful for storage, transmission and processing of scientific and other images. FITS formatted files are probably the most commonly used file formats in astronomy. If this is not a supported type, what is the possibility that is might become a supported image file type?
I ask because I do astrophotography and my cameras and capture software saves in FITS format. If Affinity can work directly with FITS format it would save me time from having to first uses another program convert from FITS to TIFF. I've attached one of my FITS files. Many people in the amateur astronomy and astrophotography community use PS. I use a very old CS2 version. I was considering something like CS5 or CS6 but those are now also old versions too. I don't like Adobes subscription and have been looking for other alternatives. I am liking what I see with Affinity. I think that this could easily be used in processing astrophotography images, especially for those already familiar with PS processing. With a few additions, such as supporting the FITS format, I think you might be able to attract astrophotography enthusiasts to Affinity Photo.
