    Well, Apple did leave out a lot of features at first, many were added back and in different places. I have come from Pagemaker/InDesign so I expect advanced features to do what I need to do. For books and pamphlets it works perfectly for me. For other users, they could be disappointed that the program isn't an InDesign killer, but the price isn't an InDesign price either.

    Yes, the best thing is to try the trial version. For me, it ticked almost all of the boxes that I was using Aperture for.

     

    Oh, YES! The Affinity Photo beta is so fun!!!! And powerful, I am loving it.

    I have found their design approach to be really outstanding. I thought it was designed as a word processor, but I made really great brochures with Pages back in 2005. No idea if it's still great at that, and fully understand it can't replace InDesign. But for what it is, it's a really great program. So yeah, good point on the price as well.

    Emulsion I will try later today (it's raining here anyway) but I'm enjoying Affinity Photo right now. A really great program, with all the features I could possibly want. The curves tool is really good. I cannot believe the hours they must have put in; it really doesn't show it's a beta. So full featured this already looks like a full grown application.

    Best!

    You can still purchase CS6 stuff directly through Adobe for the normal price. That seller is a jackass.
