Affinity Photo vs Affinity Designer

Recommended Posts

I want to design a sponsorship document (3-4 pages), and I know that Affinity is coming out with a desktop publishing application, but I will also need to be able to create covers with layers of assembled images/maybe some clip art.  What would be the better application to accomplish what I want to do?  Can Designer handle layers of imported images and alter them, and can Photo create shapes and handle more than touching up existing photos?

Both will do the job.  Designer is great for making tight vector shapes for logos or that can contain photo bit maps, and can do some color adjustments. Also, it has built in art boards set up for printing use.  Photo has some of the vector tools, but has a much larger set of filters and adjustments, far beyond retouching. Not really an answer, I guess.

Download the trial versions, and see what you can do. Each is limited to 10 days, so do one after another if you don't have lots of time each day for the trials.
