I definitely like the idea that Affinity has CMYK support. Pixelmator is a non starter for me because it doesn't.

For the folks that are using Affinity and/or Pixelmator, what App do you use for cataloging?

Affinity seems to run Aperture catalogue fine, but RAW capability seems to be tested. C'mon, let's test this opportunity!

The only thing lacking - but not for long, given their (free) update schedule - is CMYK separation (though it has faux-CMYK proofing).
I have never used Pixelmatr, this is my first time looking at anything other then Adobe... and still Adobe CC is what I use. Affinity Designer feels much much faster then Illustrator, but without the pantone library, it really is useless to me. I do not use illustrator a whole lot, Indesign is my main app. I go to illustrator to fix up/create logos mainly, and when doing that i am always using pantones or creating spot colours if it will be a digital job, so I have colour control.

It takes some getting used to... and I have not gotten used to it yet, not really using it much. Now and then I throw something in the try it out to see how it compares.

I bought the program when it came out. It offers a lot and plenty to learn. I thought that I would mention for anyone that wants to check it out that a trial version has now been posted to the Affinity Photo website.

I have my pictures in folders (with a year/month structure - sometimes adding folders for events) I use GraphicConverter to browse the pictures. I also use Apple Photos, but use that mainly just for my iOS pictures and syncing.

Goodbye Adobe, look what Affinity Photo sent me, and this is no spam:

Hi HEXedit,

The Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo 1.3.5 updates have recently gone live on the Mac App Store. Thanks for all your feedback that has helped shape these updates.

We are working hard to produce a bumper update for later in the year, so again we will need you help over the coming months to polish the beta for release. We will be releasing beta updates that will include some great new features so keep checking in to see what we are up to.






When we released Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo we were so pleased and proud of the fantastic reviews and 5 star ratings we received. The feedback is so important to the team and the continued success of the project, so a big thank you from all of us at SerifLabs. Unfortunately, when we push an update to the Mac App Store our reviews and ratings are reset so we need your help again If you can spare 5 minutes to review Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo again, it would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks,
Affinity Team @ SerifLabs

Meaning probably they have to be indexed all over again, the poor bastards! Give them confidence, it won't cost you a thing and they deliver a prime product. Although getting indexed by Google on the App Store is not obvious... So getting indexed by external links is their thing. Please write a comment or review.
Thankx mates!

Yes Adobe has been taking all of us for an expensive ride for much too long! Their model is essentially that of the 'pure Pro' who doesn't mind spending $$$ for something they use every day. The issue is with the more causal user who may use InDesign once a month, Photoshop once a week and Illustrator once in a blue moon... Apple, for all their neglect of the pro market, have addressed the 'semi-pro' market in terms of pricing e.g. Final Cut now costs ⅔ less than the previous version.

Anyway, I digress... Here is what looks like a sensible comparison review between teh two programmes.
