So since i got tired of the Adobe subscription model, i was looking for something to replace Photoshop.
I looked around and found Affinity photo, it is 54,99 euros, it has a buy once update forever model.
It seems to have all of the functions of Photoshop, or at least i have not found something important missing yet.
One of the coolest things is probably live preview on tools, + it loads PSD files faster than photoshop
I know surreptitious advertising of some degree but i think it would be worth looking into for everyone.
Its available on MAC and WIN
Here is a Video of someone that took the time to actually make a Video about it for you guys in "English"
