Graphic Design: Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo - Award Wining Software

Affinity Designer software and Affinity Photo software are two powerful graphic tools to make professional, website and marketing graphics.

In my opinion, they give new graphic design capability to website folks like me, while also being less expensive to own, versus renting the Adobe design programs such as Photoshop and Adobe.

As I have mentioned in previous podcasts, I am a believer in owning your tools and owning your website. In website technology, software is a significant tool - we will all agree to that I am sure. Why rent graphic software when you can buy it for less?

Back in the day, Adobe used to allow purchasing Photoshop and Illustrator, but no more. Now you rent their programs - forever.

Every feature that Adobe offers in those two programs is matched or exceeded in Affinity software. Very recently, Affinity released a Publishing software and I have not used that one yet.

There are loads of tutorials and tips on the Affinity software, including YouTube videos, which add to the value and helps reduce your learning curve.

One excellent resource of Affinity tutorials is JenCoDesign.com

This is link to Affinity design software website: https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/ where you can download a fully featured version - FREE - for 30 days.
