Affinity photo vs Photoshop? (In 2019)

    I just setup my new Mac, didn't even install any adobe. Affinity photo + Polarr does everything I need for photos (could probably do it all in Affinity photo, but I was already using Polarr for a while and have workflows setup).

    Affinity Designer is not quite an illustrator substitute, but it is very close to being there, for more illustration stuff I use Clip Studio, which has a full version on the iPad that is subscription based, or Mac version that is a one time fee.

    Affinity Publisher beta to replace indesign, and will buy it in a second. Already completed 2 photo magazine layouts that have gone to print, and a couple of smaller zines. They say not to use it for production, but I think its working perfectly fine with only a couple of crashes, but the recovery files weren't missing anything.

    adobe alternates
