For the last 5 years I've been working with a third-party software developer helping with Photoshop dependent add-in's. The product is targeted for composite creators at all expertise levels.
As such, the product is highly dependent on good-cutouts.
While Affinity Desktop is the first product that looks and functions in many ways like Photoshop, in the cutout department, it doesn't even come close!

Affinity is still improving the software.

The big attraction is that affinity is not subscription for those users that don't want to pay the rest of their lives for software that quits working if you stop paying and prevents access to your files., no matter how many years you payed them for the "right" to use said software or software so full of ovious bugs one wonders how a company could relese such software and not expect lots of criticism.

And with perpetual software, even though it may not be the latest, as long as you have an operating system it will run on, you never lose access to your files.


Another big issue is having to have an internet connection if you inadvertently mess up by signing into too many computers or because of some software glitch, then you out on the road and try to use photoshop and bam your prevented from using it because you don't have an internet connection good enough to connect. People would be surprised how many places don't have good internet or none at all, even in the US.
