Affinity Photo can be used on multiple computers and is a very powerful image editing tool. In some ways, I have found that it rivals the capabilities of Adobe Photoshop, in other ways, I find that it borders on exceeding the abilities of Photoshop.

In version 14.2 of Capture One 21, the company removed the tried and tested method of exporting images in favor of an easier-to-use export-window-styled workflow.
The move had a mixed response, with some professional and enterprise-level users claiming that it broke their workflow. Others – most notably beginners – welcomed the more user-friendly ‘export’ button in the toolbar and subsequent windowed dialog workflow.
Now, with version 14.4, the Export Tools Tab is back … if you want it.Read More »Capture One Brings Back Export Tab in v14.4
