Affinity photo and Affinity design are perfectly acceptable replacements for Photoshop and illustrator for 95% of users. They are less than £50, one off payment, no subscription.

With the introduction of Affinity publish, you can now work seamlessly across all the apps in one environment. Switch persona and the tools change, but the document remains on screen.
