Affinity - The Affordable Alternative to Photoshop for Indies

Recommended Posts

I wanted to share a valuable find I came across while on YouTube.

Are you disgusted at the price of Photoshop itself as a singular software, even with the available payment plans?

$1000-6000 is a great deal of money that can go to much more valued software and technological resources.

There's practically zero difference in the visual layout of Affinity compared to Photoshop. The best part?

Affinity has made creative and systematic improvements that Adobe couldn't carry out, even with the latest version of PS.

Guess how much it costs (virtually being an exact copy in terms of what Photoshop does)? $50!

My mind is boggled right now. I cannot believe I only just came across this software.

I hope you guys take the time to look into it if you wish to get into graphic design, as it is a very helpful skill set to have when creating anything visually when it comes to digital and even physical platforms.

Looks interesting.

 

I like using Pixlr which is free and in your web browser:

(Its nowhere near as polished and feature complete as photoshop though)

Looks good. I'm a paint.net user but if I didn't use that I'd def try it out

Indeed. Although, personally, Gimp has a UI that really throws me off for some odd reason. Great piece of software, too, nonetheless!

Same. Paint.net with plugins is more than useful.

I've been using Affinity designer for almost 4 months and I gotta say that I've never looked back at Photoshop. After awhile of using Photoshop it gets sluggish and slow, with Affinity it's super fast even after hours of use.
