I am using Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer in a Windows 10 environment for more than a year and it really worth the 40€ spent. It is fullfilling most of my needs and I definitely uninstalled Photoshop and illustrator. The transition from Adobe products was very smooth and it wasn't like passing from Adobe to Corel. In fact I was surprised to be able to work on my projects in a couple of hours after installing the software. I am using AFP with a Gaomon PD1560 graphic tablet the perfect combination for a freelancer with a tight budget. Notice that Affinity photo is regularly updated and the Serif team is quite reactiv.

Farewell Adobe!

A lot faster than Photoshop. Doesn't have the lag photoshop has (especially when using font tool), also doesn't have 11 additional programs running in the background like with PS (and CC) even after closing the app.

For me as a long time user of Photoshop since 1992 till 2018, Affinity Photo is the best application to replace Adobe Photoshop. The ease of use in this application cannot be compared to Adobe Photoshop and GIMP. Although GIMP is a bit difficult to use, but you can get used to it in the long run and I have no regrets switching from using this application apart from being free. Along with Krita which is the second one and GIMP the third one as my image editor of choice. And of course the best and first choice for me is Affinity Photo for editing images. Besides of being fast and lighter its tools from the toolbar is easy to familiarise due to the similarity of the tools in Photoshop. And besides Affinity Photo is an inexpensive and it has non-destructive editing tools wherever to drag right and left using with the hand tools is not hard to pull the image during the editing. I have stopped using Adobe Photoshop since 2018, due to that I have noticed every time I open Photoshop it speeds up the processor of my laptop. The chirpsing of the fan on the processor seemed to always accelerate it like a car constantly the accelerator being pressed by the foot. My laptop is getting hot when I touch it on the top side of the keyboard and on the bottom side. Recently, when Photoshop was updated in 2019 and so has the Illustrator these two Adobe products were so voracious of consuming memory. The problem of overheating and the constant acceleration of the processor of my PC was gone when I stop using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.

One-off purchase rather than subscription based.
