“Photoshop is a workhorse of which the first versions were released as early as the mid-eighties of the past century. Affinity Photo is brand new. So, would it be fair to compare them? If there would be any logic in software development, I’d answer that question with a ‘No,'” IT.Enquirer writes. “But there isn’t — logic, I mean. Affinity Photo may well blow Photoshop out of the water. It’s faster, has no historically grown rubbish the developer needs to keep in there and is just plain powerful. And best of all: its licence model is customer-friendly.”
“The proof of the pudding is always in the eating,” IT.Enquirer. “You really must experience this new image editor to understand that you can’t compare it with previous Photoshop killer attempts such as Pixelmator. Affinity Photo is much, much more powerful and I wouldn’t hesitate it’s the first image editor ever that has a strong potential to unseat Photoshop. And not only because of its licence or price.”
