Affinity ready for Prime Time...
Affinity recently released version 1.5 and it finally looks like it might be a significant competitor for Photoshop. They have added a great Macro feature (like actions in PS).
What's to like:
Macro feature looks to be easier to use, easier to adapt and modify and easier to create alternatives which can be changed by the user during execution.
Equations which look powerful and are unavailable in PS.
Built in features which have better interface. Frequency Separation, tonal mapping, etc.
Better integrated RAW processing. Which leads to...
What not to like:
RAW processing is slow. Way too slow. (Capture One is still the King of the Hill for RAW processing in so many ways--speed, rendering, uniquely powerful feature set).
TIFF support for layers doesn't include layers generated in PS.
Still, it shows much promise. I haven't used it enough yet, but hope to play more.
What do you think? Have you tried it?
