    • I believe, now that it supports Windows, that it's a great alternative to Photoshop. There's a wide variety of features you can find both on Photoshop and Photo, they share most of the key features. Affinity's design is beautiful aswell.

    • It's non-subscription, and Affinity keeps adding new features, which do not require a paid upgrade. I'm hooked. aldorrDec 2016 • 8 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • I love gimp for what you get for free.. But best paid alternative without the subscription based software or stripped down PS Elements. Affinity Photo is a sweet deal, and great alternative to Photoshop. I only see this getting better with time and now it's on Windows. Pen support (default settings) could be better but doable.

    • One time payment, low price, can do almost anything Photoshop can do, often better! Frequent updates, many free tutorials online... Excellent team that answer any question on the forum. It's not the best alternative to Photoshop, Photoshop is a good alternative to Affinity Photo. Guest • Jul 2017 • 3 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Full featured, easy to use, actively developed and cheap! Guest • Sep 2017 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is usable! Everybody keeps recommending GIMP, which is (if you're used to Photoshop) horrible in it’s usability for creative work. Affinity Photo can totally keep up with Photoshop and is so much cheaper! Guest • Sep 2017 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Does what I mostly need and does not force me to rent. Matt_PubJul 2017 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Affinity is the closest software to Photoshop. With a direct import for PSD files and the simple "Persona"-System it's the best solution with a low price. janse_wFeb 2017 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Really Good UI, not expensive and does the job Guest • Dec 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • One time Payment. Good Toolset. Very similar to Photoshop Guest • Mar 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • 90% of the same features of Adobe Photoshop. The other 10% are tools rarely even used. Save your money, buy this cheaper alternative. Guest • Apr 2018 Disagree   Agree

    • For the simple editing I do to get photos ready for email and web, Pixelmator is perfect. It can crop (including constrained cropping), resize, and do all the essential color/brightness/contrast/levels tweaks. And the best feature of all, it has a magical healing brush for removing blemishes. davecortrightMar 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Sketch is not an alternative for image editing, however for website building and prototyping many people use Photoshop. And here Sketch is SO MUCH better than Photoshop. Matt_PubJul 2017 • 7 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Sketch is a vector based illustration and prototyping tool, while Photoshop's scope and tool set is much broader, while not as efficient as Sketch for that type of work. And Photoshop focuses on image editing, which is impossible in Sketch. herbertvanderwegenSep 2017 • 6 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It does not work for photo editing at all Guest • Jul 2017 • 4 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
