I've been keeping my eye on this software since Adobe went to a subscription service.

It's the closest to Adobe Photoshop software that you'll get, and get free updates without having to buy a subscription. It can even open up PSD files to edit/review. The only limitation the software has (from what I've read) is some very advanced features aren't included from the newest version or two of Photoshop. However, if you dabble in photoshop work and not live by it, you likely already have Photoshop and not care about Affinity Photo.

This is the lowest price, ever! Even including its opening offer amount.

Not yet. It's kind of a low priority because there are good alternatives. For example, Inkscape has Potrace [wikipedia.org] built into it and is free, open source. You can see an example of its capabilities at that Wiki page.

It's a topic that comes up fairly often, so there are some useful threads at Affinity's forums. Here is one:

Affinity Designer (their take on Illustrator) is also discounted. I'll probably pick it up. I've had Photo for a while and done a few courses on Lynda and I can't imagine needing Photoshop over it for my uses.

You can install and use single license on multiple computers.

"As a private individual, you can download, install, use and run for personal use, one copy of the Serif Software directly on each computer running Microsoft Windows ("Windows Computer") that you personally own or control."



Coming from Photoshop, I found the GIMP interface to be ugly and too unfamiliar. Granted, this was 4 years ago when I tried. For $35, Affinity Photo is nearly identical to Photoshop IMO. The support forums are very helpful, they make their roadmap publicly available, and they seem very open to suggestions.

GIMP seems like a tool 3 dudes in a closet hodge-podged together, with lots of things requiring external plugins. The UI is atrocious. Affinity Photo gives off a more polished and professional look, and again, workflow/UI wise is the closest thing to Photoshop I have found.

Thanks, I've been watching this software since I missed the deal when it went from $39 to $49 back last Fall.

I've been wanting it since I learned you could no longer activate old version of Adobe PS (i.e. CS4) when they cut it off around the same time.

I dabble in photography as a thing I like to do, usually when we go on trips or for special events. I've been meaning to get some software to help with how my photos end up after I transfer them to my MacBook. Might give this a try, never wanted to spend all this money on something like this but I think it's about time I did.

Can a MacBook Air handle this type of software with ease?

The title is slightly misleading. The iPad version is $14, not $35.

Oh, nice, didn't even look at that since I thought it was the same price and I'd probably use it more on my laptop at home. Not sure it's worth it to buy both since I'd probably rarely sue it on the iPad since my photos would need to be downloaded from the camera's memory card to my laptop first. Was thinking maybe I can use the iPad version when traveling but not sure it would come in handy with photos from my camera.

This actually might give me a reason to buy the Apple Pencil, although I'd still wait until they come out with version 2 if they ever do.

I'm more interested in something like Adobe LR for Android. Is there anything out there with batch edits and album upload to FB, Flickr, etc?
