Ratings and Reviews
If you ever wasted time switching between a publisher type program, photo editor and vector editor you have got to try this app with the other two apps linked. I have all three programs and they flow like water one into the other. This is a major game-changer!
Being a big fan of Affinty apps, I had been using the Publisher program in beta form for some time now, which had the link to the other programs disabled. While I have really enjoyed the Publisher program by itself, the link to the other programs makes this an incredibly powerful creative tool. Add edits, paint on the doc, create vector images and adjust them...all within the same document. This app has completely changed my workflow!
Add the low cost and no subscription needed aspect of these programs and it is really a no brainer.
Other favorite features:
-Typography handling. Open type features are easily available and previewable!
-Different layers on each page.
- Linking or embedding of images with a resource manager to manage how each image is handled.
- High performance. Blending modes and brushes are previewed on the page before committing to any action.
- Fantastic snapping and alignment tools.
The Next Generation!
Been a long time user of InDesign and a user of the Affinity apps since their public beta of Designer.
I've been waiting for years for something to rival and hopefully surpass InDesign. Finally Affinity Publisher has been released. This app is amazing, what it may lack in number of features when compared to InDesign it more than makes up for in speed and workflow.
After using Publisher, I can't ever imagine going back to InDesign. Daily I use Designer and Photo, which have replaced Illustrator and Photoshop for me both at work and in my personal use. I can safely say, without a doubt, Publisher will be replacing InDesign for me also.
I can't wait to see what Affinity does next with these apps. This is truly a giangantic leap forward in technology for a creative like myself. Affinity has shown they care about the product, and their customers more than making greedy investors happy. I can't recommend Publisher and the other Affinity apps enough!
As a beta tester, I award 5 stars for the first version. It is very capable even with some things missing. All of your apps keep getting better with each release. Totally love the integration with your other apps. I got them on day 1 and use them all on a daily basis incljuding iPad versions. Very happy to be subscription free for several years. Thanks for making everything so good - much love to the entire team :)
