I'm over the moon to tell you about the launch of Affinity Spotlight, the new place to go for creative inspiration, learning resources and Affinity news. Whether it’s features on artists and photographers using Affinity, tutorials on how to get the best from the apps, behind-the-scenes insight or news and updates, it will all be posted on Affinity Spotlight.

 

We’ve literally just made the site live and we’d love you to check it out!

 

https://affinityspotlight.com


This has been a real labour of love for our web dev team and our content team, and of course, this is just the start—we’ll be posting new stories and articles each week. We hope you like what we’ve done and enjoy reading our stories.

 

All the best,
Kate

Congrats! First we thought it could be the DAM … then perhaps a web dev app … ;)

 

Available in other languages from when?

I discovered it today. I really like the idea and design! The categories are some of the things I usually search for:

  • The work made by professionals.
  • A learning source to grow my skills.
  • Behind the scenes.

I hope that within the third one we can see workflows and how people integrate the Affinity line into the broader picture.

Wish you the best and I'm looking forward the content you will publish.

Best regards!

NICE. I believe it also makes an impact when people is evaluating the software as a professional tool. Those high quality pieces, the workflow of actual professionals...go a long way.

Apologies for the OT observation, but why does Documentation Manager @acapstick’s potted biography at the bottom of that article have a hyphen in between “in” and “between”? :/

This is actually... brilliant!! It will do wonders for the exposition and divulgation of Affinity software.

Important question though. Is there a RSS/Atom feed for the new content/articles/whatever? Thanks!

Unfortunately not, however Spotlight will have a regular newsletter showcasing the latest and greatest articles :)
We plan on adding further features to Spotlight in the future, and I will ensure your voice is heard in terms of implementing an RSS feed!

Yeah, but I already have enough emails related to work going into my inbox. I need less emails, not more. :P Besides I already have a design related curated feed in Feedly, it's much better to plug this source into the existing system rather than having to check a separate place for news.

For these reasons, please consider doing an RSS feed.

Thanks!

RSS is fairly easy to set up but in case it is not implemented, just make a filter with the first email to a folder of your choosing. Most of my mail gets filtered one way or another

We were waiting for you to produce "Publisher".

We were waiting for an application that we could use instead of "InDesign"
We designers, use Illustrator, Photoshop, and "Indesign"
We were waiting for Serif to produce the missing link

We cant leave Adobe without the substitute.

Instead you produced something we don't need.

My patience has ended, so I will continue to use "Indesign" and gave up waiting for the last third.

You should have brought out affinity publisher instead.

 

There is no ‘either/or’ here! Those who are working on Affinity Spotlight are not programmers, and there is no indication that development of Affinity Publisher has stalled.

It's been very clear for a long time that for most serious users of Adobe InDesign the first version of Affinity Publisher will not serve as an immediate replacement.

With the exception of QA staff checking this site for a few days there is no overlap at all in staff involved and these programming teams are 100% independent, as you suggest.

 

@davemike

Not developing this site would have had ZERO impact on the release date of Publisher, though I appreciate why it may feel that way when you are patiently waiting. Sorry that you are giving up, but it is not ready yet, and it would not have been ready if there were no Affinity Spotlight website.
