I am anxious to see Affinity Designer because PP has pretty much been dropped in development.

Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, Jeff. :)

Affinity Designer is a hybrid vector/raster app like DrawPlus. Affinity Publisher (currently in public beta) is Serif’s new DTP app, but I think we can reasonably expect it to take quite a while to catch up with the capabilities added to PagePlus over three decades of development.

PP hasn’t just “pretty much” ceased development. It’s no longer being developed at all now.

Hi everyone,

I recently started to use Affinity software, mostly Designer. Before, I used Inkscape for some simple illustrations for Wikipedia. I don't have significant experience in design, but I want to learn.

Introducing myself! I am Spacetrog here and just about everywhere else on the web, real name is Mike Lemos, and as my profile mentions, I am from So Cal, and basically I’ve done a lot of work over the years as an illustrator & graphic artist (both analog & digital) in a the toy, comics, entertainment, and a few other industries. But don’t let that fool you, I am basically a huge old Skool goofball looking to grapple with a new design application and so I’m trying out Affinity Designer on my new iPad to see what I and everybuddy else can cook up.

Cheers folks!

Hi, I am Gary Luther. I have been a user of the Serif products for a couple of years and love the new Affinity programs. I was an editor for a small newspaper and used Adobe InDesign for most of my formatting. Was very excited to see and play with Affinity Publisher. I think the Affinity software is BOSS! I just turned 79 and am amazed I can still run a computer. I spent 28 years as a System Engineer for IBM. I also was into APL in case any of you know what that is. Be careful, you may date yourself!! :)

Hello ladiiiiiieeeesssss and gentlemeeeennnnn

Another keen amateur from FRANCE who wants legal and supported software but will not forfeit his freedom for yet another compulsory monthly plan.. No name;)

Have heard very good things about Affinity Photo & Designer

Just bought Affinity Photo (WINDOWS) and Affinity Photo Workbook

Affinity Revolution as they say... here I come

 

Hope the community is as helpful as the editor.. Special thanks to STEVE from the ORDERS dpt..

Long life to Affinity, hoping that they don't turn too much into another cash cow.. You know who I mean

 

Take care!

Have seen links to tutorials on Affinity

Am French but have setup Affinity in English as it will be easier to follow this growing list of free tutorial about the new kid on the block

Good morning! (you can thank J. R. R. Tolkien for this bit...I read The Hobbit about a dozen times in 1970...heheh)

Anyway, I'm very pleased to have found the Affinity programs.  I've been using Photoshop for around twenty years, and have been really annoyed at having to keep paying and paying and paying.  Affinity Photo, so far, is doing everything for me that Photoshop has been doing., and faster  Any minute now, I'll be buying AP and AD...and, of course, canceling the CC sub.  I'm sure this forum will be very helpful.

Mika - You have some serious talent!  If you hadn't said you're a hobbyist, I'd have guessed ;you were a pro.

You meant what Bilbo told Gandalf just to be left alone, and how the wizard started talking about the different tone of that, compared to the one used before.... Not a dozen times, and impossible in 1970 for me, but have read those books at least twice... (some probably 3 times...and practically everything else Tolkien wrote) ...ehm..in Spanish version 9_9 .


Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo licenses, Windows 7, i7  860 (2009) 2.8 GHz. 4c/8t, 8 GB RAM, GTX 1050 2 GB, HD 7200 RPM Seagate Barracuda.
Affinity PHOTO 1.7.x ....AMAZING. Getting there for painting. But "ALT" color picking needs LOVE. It's now the only show-stopper for painting. PLEASE give it LOVE ;) .
Or your coding magic.

My name is Dean, I have been a PS user since ver. 1.  I am excited for the probably change to my software workflow. I am a photographer and now do primarily photo restoration, scanning, some design, etc etc. I retired my aging PowerPC G5 and am loving my new 27 inch Retina 5k iMac. I am hoping to see a combo deal here soon for all 3 software products. I may have to just jump in with Designer first as I had just renewed PS a few months ago and I am working with the Publisher Beta.

Looking forward to learning new software and techniques.
