Affinity Photo Comments

A Photoshop alternative, not an Illustrator alternative.

Positive Comment by tzq4csy6u2
about Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer, Adobe Illustrator CC, Adobe Photoshop Mar 2015

This program is primarily an alternative to photoshop, many of the alternatives posted are alternatives for vector drawing programs like illustrator. Serifs version of Illustrator is a program called Affinity Designer. Ive been using the Beta version of Affinity Photo and I've got to say it's very impressive thus far, the best replacement to photoshop that Ive ever used!
