Are there designers using Affinity Designer as their main app for UI design? I personally didn't expect much of it, but it became my main app pretty quick, I really really like it, especially since I really don't like Photoshop and I had to find a replacement for Fireworks, which was my main app until recently. Also, are there still people enjoying working with Fireworks from time to time? I know, I know, it's 2018, but I still use it, even though Adobe dropped it 100 years ago
It is, isn't it? It's so amazing, I'm so excited about it. It's so easy to learn, took me a bit over an hours to learn it and two days to become fully comfortable with it. I really hope this will become the industry standard, I hate Photoshop with a passion Nothing makes sense in Photoshop. Plus it's ridiculously overpriced.
I Looooooooooooooooove Photoshop for photo-editing. I've even used it for all sorts of stuff it is not really meant to be used for, but really for messing with photos there is nothing like it.
(Petra toodles off to google Affiity...)
OK... So I've just looked at Affinity. That is ***CHEAP*** I might just get it to play around with...
I don't do photo editing, I was referring to UI design Although there is Affinity Photo for photo editingm which looks pretty amazing.
edit: designing in a photo editing app doesn't make sense to me, that's why I always avoided Photoshop. Plus I really dislike the interface and workflow.
Affinity Designer would be the one that's supposed to compete with Illustrator, right?
My only interactin with it was through seeing a couple of youtube videos pop up about it. Is it really that good? What did you used to work on previously?
Nice to hear there are newer alternatives for design work popping up.
By the way, fireworks was great. It's pretty sad that Adobe decided to take it off the market. I used to work on it a lot back in the day. Can you still get some functionality out of it? Or does it feel a bit outdated?
