Today was the first time I have seen several posts on Adobe Family stating that they were leaving Adobe in favor of Affinity if Affinity can do what they need. 

At this point in the development of Affinity Photo, it is going to be difficult to make that transition.

As one person pointed out, Adobe is still the luxury liner and Affinity is just a tug boat. Personally, I see Adobe as the train engine and Affinity the caboose. 

If you look at the total number of Photoshop users and how many are NOT full-time professionals, you might surmise that neither Adobe nor Affinity have their primary focus on the pro.

It's a funny concept because it was the pro that made Adobe successful.

This Photoshop vs APhoto discussion in this board is old and repetive. Let's not start that again as all has been said in other topics.

More interesting to me would be a proof that on the other side this discussion also happens. But there was no link provided and I did not find that.

Hello Steps,

I posted my notes about current Photoshop Users moving to Affinity because I thought it was interesting. I didn't do it so a person like you could write back as you have done. Your notes demonstrate the limited value of boards like this. 

I am not interested in trying to help any further. I am removing this board from my computer. I don't have time to read and respond to nonsense like this.

Hi Dennis,

You wrote "Today was the first time I have seen several posts on Adobe Family stating that they were leaving Adobe in favor of Affinity if Affinity can do what they need." and I just wanted to read about that discussion on Adobe forums. I was interested in their statements. As I did not find that I asked for a link.

What is the limited value? I don't see what you mean.

I consider comparisons like this to be pure bullshit. Affinity is a "tog boat" or a "caboose"? This is of limited value.

What is the purpose of your post anyway? Do you want to start the 1001st Affinity Photo vs Photoshop thread?

We already know they are different.

The only interesting feedback in that regard is which features from Photoshop are really missing in APhoto and why. (I also have some on my list)

By searching I only find very short postings started by you complaining about Adobe.

And you seem not to be to happy with Affinity either. Maybe it's just hard to please you.

I'm going to point out that this section of the forum is for Affinity Designer, which would compete with Adobe Illustrator. Discussion about Affinity Photo and Adobe Photoshop shouldn't be here.

But not everything is so categorical.  I replaced Photoshop and Illustrator with Affinity Designer for UI design))

That's dandy, but  the OP is talking about migration from Photoshop to Affinity Photo. No mention of Designer.

Yes, you are right. He seems to be a bit confused anyway. On the Adobe forum he wrote a rant and categorized it as "praise".

Leave categories behind. :)
