I doubt you can register it though.

There is no need to register, but you can use the Universal Registration Key 881887 so that the registration nag screen no longer appears.

This really annoyed my sister, who had been using Webplus and the hosting service for a couple of family sites.

WebPlus X8 still works, and it generates standard HTML5 code, so you can use almost any hosting service.

My name is Tom. I have been a 20 year developer using mostly Adobe products in the past. I was out of the field for a few years and have returned recently discovering the Affinity product line as they have reignited my design passion. I am very grateful for the incredible tools provided as well as the top notch tech support for them. I can't wait to see what is next and am right now in deep study trying to learn the inner workings of the current Affinity Suite. I wish I had these same tools available in the past as they would have streamlined some involved past projects. These belong in everyone's graphic toolbox, even if you work with other tools as they are very reasonable and very good at what they do. From what I have seen already, Serif really cares and will give you the best they can. Thanks so much. Worth easily multiples of the purchase price, yet so affordable and reachable for anyone.

Welcome to the community.

Welcome (rather belatedly!) to you too, George. :)

You seem to have specified your location as a postal address: it probably isn’t a good idea to share such things on a public forum, so you might like to change that. In a similar vein, posting an undisguised email address as you’ve done here is an invitation to spammers (although I suspect that the ‘gorge’ part should be ‘george’, so in its present form it may well be useless to address harvesters).

Hello, everybody.

Finally arrived at this point in my life to pursuit all my creative interests almost all at once thanks to these great products. They make life so much easier without sacrificing anything. 

I love the YouTube tutorials a lot, so please, keep doing them.

See you around.

Hi folks, having self-published four books using Word and become increasingly frustrated by the hoops one has to jump through to format them correctly, I decided it was time to move over to a more suitable DTP platform, and Affinity Publisher was recommended in a blog post I read.

I've only been using it for about a week on editing a book project, first on the free trial, and now the paid version. It's been a bit of a steep learning curve, but with the aid of the video tutorials I'm starting to get the hang of things - although just last night it developed a habit of crashing randomly on me ( I have posted a bug report about this).

Anyway, I look forward to learning some tips and tricks from you all - and to getting my crashing issue sorted out!

Just to say hello to everyone. Another newbie here. Only had Affinity Photo for a few days and finding my way around. I have what I consider an extensive family photo collection and adding to it regularly with my Nikon camera set up. I have been using Photoshop but now I'm retired, the monthly subscription had to go.🙂 I have set up Adobe Bridge to use as DAM and it's working OK together with Affinity Photo.

Looking to find my way around the software as quickly as possible. I may have a few questions on the way.😕

Just to add, AP works perfectly with XP-Pen Star06c graphics tablet

Hi all,

I'm Shep and a long-time user of Adobe CS6, currently in the process of migrating myself over to Photo and Publisher. I work in the tabletop RPG industry as a writer and do book layout for RPG book content. InDesign CS6 has been my life for a long time, so making the move (especially mid-book layout) is proving daunting. I'm very happy to be here though and excited to get fully up to speed on Affinity!

Greetings,

My name is Mark. New user of Affinity products, though I have 35 years of experience with Quark and Adobe products as a professional prepress operator. Shifted careers (Chemist working as a Microbiologist), but wanted to pursue some personal design projects (TTRP supplements, shout out @SubTric) and after research settled on Affinity for bang for the buck (since I am paying for it rather than my employer) and I am really impressed with the features and capabilities at this price point. Other than a few small missing things (not essential), this covers the bases. Hope to be up to speed soon.

Hi Matt, I have just downloaded this onto my laptop (windows) for a  trial. I am just starting out in photography so have limited knowledge of Affinity or any other system. 

I am not able to find in the tutorials how to get my images from my folders over to Affinity so that I can start to use it, wondering if you could help with this

@Dorothy Bullivant  Welcome to the forums Dorothy!  Since this is a weekend you may receive help faster if you will post your question in the Forum section devoted to questions for desktop users.   I am not familiar with Windows, so am not at all qualified to help.  But you will surely receive expert help if you create a new topic such as “how do I get my images into Photo from my folders?”   Once you get started you will surely love Photo, and as you browse through that same section of the Forums you will find many, many topics that will teach you so much as you progress!

My name is Wally at wrecio.recio@gmail.com.  I have 12 years experience with photoshop editing with other labels.  I am very curdious about the way facebook introuduced you new background eraser.  I purchased it right away after the demo.  Ever since my purchase on Oct 13, I have been unable to open Affinity because it does not recognize the Key Product given.  Can we please get together and tell me what went wrong on your end?  Thank you very much.  I am at my home office 24-7.
