    One of the most highly regarded Photoshop alternatives is now available on Windows. Affinity Phototoday launched its free public beta for Windows users, allowing anyone to download the popular pro photo editing software.

    No I dont, I use Photoshop - CS6. However it is costly to go over on the subscription method and therefor many people are looking at alternatives. The link I posted is obviously not the only alternative so one would have to figure out what suits best if you dont want to go the Photoshop route. I have invested too much time and money into Photoshop so I am unlikely to change.

    Started playing with it and I'm very impressed. Will have to go through a learning curve; fortunately there are lots of tutorials available. It's so similar to Photoshop, even the keyboard shortcuts are the same. (I just wonder why Adobe are not suing them, perhaps on the verge of that.)
    Seems to be quicker than PS and I like the "live" changes as you move sliders. Most of the PS plugins also work here. Amazingly its only a once off $50 ((R644.00) when I purchased it 2 weeks ago.) Cheaper than PS elements and you have channels, masks, etc. basicly 99% of PS proper and a few more things. If familiar with PS, you will find you're way around quite easily.
    I was told they are working on a Lightroom-replacement as well. Don't know when it will be ready. Lots of Tuts on YouTube and a full pdf manual available from their website (over 600 pages)
