Well, it's good that Affinity exists. I said goodbye to Photoshop and Adobe's pricing model a long time ago.

I'm aware that people who are used to working with Photoshop cannot or do not want to work in any other way. This is quite similar with PC users.

Everyone has their toys, but Adobe has an unusually lousy pricing policy that translates into fewer new customers, so now we watch their desperate attempt to retain young people. A chocolate in addition might work. For the very young and inexperienced. Good luck

Adobe's pricing model is completely insane. I hope they fail as a company.

Wow. That only makes it 2x a reasonable price
I mean, Adobe was never reasonably priced.

The subscription nonsense just took it from "highway robbery" to "highway robbery and we shoot you in the back anyway".

I also jumped ship and never looked back when they switched to subscription only, but…

It’s working great for them, so I don’t know about the desperation part.

They really should take a leaf out of the book of 3D modelling software companies. Offer a free tier for students.
Once you've got them hooked in then… well then the gloves come off.

Good discount for those wanting to use Adobe. But I prefer Affinity Photo. Also don't like the subscription model from Adobe.
