Learning Affinity Photo – From Basic to Intermediate

Affinity Photo is an excellent alternative to Adobe Photoshop for beginners or enthusiasts who are not already embedded in the Adobe ecosystem of apps.

Is Affinity Photo Compatible with PSD Files?

How Well Does Affinity Photo Handle Adobe PSD files?

Affinity Photo is an application that has been spoken of quite highly in the recent past. Affinity by Serif has created a suite of apps that take on Adobe’s stalwarts, Photoshop, Illustrator, and In-Design head-on.

They’re also new to the field, so the apps need to prove themselves before professionals consider switching to Affinity Photo, Designer, and Publisher full-time. In the meantime, one of the important questions that need to be answered is: Do Affinity Apps support Adobe file formats like .PSD, .AI, .PDF, and .EPS which have become industry standards over the course of the last 3 decades or more?

How to Use Batch Processing in Affinity Photo

Graphic designers and photographers often have to apply a series of actions or processes to multiple images from a photo shoot. This can get tiresome and the entire reason why we have computers is so that we can avoid doing boring repetitive work, right?

Affinity Photo Crashing Frequently? Here’s How To Fix It

My initial experience with Affinity Photo was a mixture of wonder and disappointment. Wonder, because I loved the way that they had reinvented the photo editing experience (for someone who grew up using photoshop), and that the editing experience could be so different: in some ways better than photoshop. But frequent software crashes spoil the user experience and are never part of the deal that one makes with their tools. Here’s how I figured out why Affinity Photo was crashing, and how I sorted it out.
