Affinity Software Discounted Offer

I've been hovering over the buy button for Affinity for some time, more because of the time it could take me to get up to speed than the price. It's considered an alternative to subscription-based Photoshop. I've read a lot of reviews which in the main seem very positive. I thought I'd give it a try when they came out with this £23.99 offer.

Clicking the green "Save 50% on Affinity Photo" links through to the Affinity site.

There are some good youtube introductory videos for new users. I can't recommend Affinity as my limited knowledge is secondhand, so please DYOR. Maybe in a couple of months?

Maybe there are some users here?

I tried it and I hated it, its just impossibly difficult and counter intuitive to use, I don't have Photoshop so cant really compare with that, but Pixelmator is about 1000 times easier to use and is cheaper to boot.

As an old tightwad, I think GIMP is great, and, of course, free.

A bit of a learning curve, but from the point of view of this amateur user, it's as powerful as Photoshop and there are loads of YouTube tutorials covering most operations I've ever needed it for.

I have used GIMP in the past some years ago and, as suggested, it is the interface that is a bit of a pig.

However someone told me not long ago that it is possible to make it 'look and feel' like Photoshop.

Anybody know if this is true?
