Serif Release Affinity V2


  • Staff
Serif has this week released the Affinity Suite 2.0 which is a major update to the original suite of Three related Graphics applications, that are available as a suite or as individual applications.

As normal with Serif they start with a healthy 40% discount (Black Friday came early) There is also now an option to purchase the complete suite against a single licence, the licences are perpetual which a lot of users prefer to the Subscription model used more and more, by Adobe and others

@Eksy61 and @Berton in the 1st thread I quoted, the Affinity staff member said they had a meeting that very day and decided to make make MSI installers available to V2 users that need them at a future and as yet unspecified date and when the MSI installers become available that info will be posted on their forums.

I've seen that happen a couple of times with the gift cards and turned out the seller couldn't access the issuer of the card to verify sufficient funds available. Once was for a Wal*Mart issued card in a Wal*Mart store, had to tell the person how much was on it then it cleared that amount.

@Edwin I had that happen to me also with a prepaid Visa and at one time my bank issued me a reloadable Visa but that was discontinued so now I have a real Visa card with the lowest limit possible $2500 and is supposedly insured by my bank for a couple of bucks per ?.

However for the Affinity Software I used Paypal which I have a limit of $300 available.
Also my orders will get rejected by sellers if I try to use "Safemoney - Kaspersky" for browser protection but am also discontinuing Kaspersky in Dec when my current subscription runs its course

Edit 2 - I believe the Promotion runs until Dec 15 so you still have time to figure out a new plan.

I sorta know what you mean Edwin I've used CorelDraw H & S X5 and X7, Gimp ect and still proficient at none as I know nothing about photography either however I just slowly learn a task that I wish to use. Also while browsing tutorials on Youtube I've found some of the tuts for V1 also apply for this newer version and hopefully more get added for V2 by the skilled users.

One selling point of this software is it is not a lesser version with limited features like CorelDraw or Photoshop and whatever function or task you wish to achieve you will not be asked to buy/upgrade to a more expensive version. 🤞

I use paypal for most if not all of my Software purchases, [and use my Debit rather than Credit card], just because it gives an extra layer of protection to the sale - they keep asking me if I want to pay in installments but it's just a click to remove that [if I need a credit plan for anything I take as much time over that part of the sale as I do on the actual goods involved]

To use the Dreamphography brushes noted in @Edwin post above they are available from the Affinity Store for free as a separate add on and don't natively come with the application.

Either Log In to the Affinity store directly through your browser or Log In to your Account through one of the Affinity applications > Browse Store (a browser window will open then enter your credentials) and download the free brushes which should be the 1st item you see.

After installing the Dreamphography brushes will be available to use and will be listed in your account when signed in.

One other thing to consider - Affinity apps can utilise the .ABR brushes as used by Photoshop, these are often available for free or at a low price on-line

@Edwin I check the Affinity Forums every weekday and will post here if I see the MSI Installer is available because my Start menu looks like crap with the unchangeable Store Icons.

@Edwin

I did some checking today and I could not find any sign of the installers turning up, "Yet" although there have been several announcements that they are iminent.

Whilst on the site there are a good selection of templates, content, and other reasonable content availables and I did not see any requests for money :wink:

I simply want to be able to create my own Open with entries up front..., I hate drilling down through Open with sub-menus or Look for another app on This PC!!!
When working with 100's of images, I need all my choices right up front...
