Ok, just got back to my home for the winter, for awhile at least, lol, anyway, I haven't even learned half the stuff on DrawPlus and now another new program???? It looks awful hard! I got the email to buy with the free extras. Is it worth it? Is the program kind of like DrawPlus? Any easier or a lot harder?
Thanks for any info....

This program AD is so easy to use, I highly recommend it. A lot better than Draw Plus and can do more things with it also affinity has a new beta program called Affinity Photo this program is used for restoring  and enhancing photos and old photos, it is free for the download and use,

Welcome back, Vicky!!  Much has happened in your absence.  DrawPlus has been discontinued so we went with Affinity Designer. It just came out with their very first version this week!!  Talk about perfect timing!!  It is an awesome program.  We've all been beta testing it for months and now, they finally released it. It's definitely worth the money.

We will be starting over from the beginning with their new tuts. Teejay is the forum moderator so we're all going to learn and re-learn.  She has not yet posted the first project so you got here just in time.  Go buy it!  It's not hard, it's just different!!  :praise53:

Well I bought it because I had a paypal credit of 30.00 so it didn't cost me much! lol But I have no idea what I am doing!!!

Will there be any glitter brushes like in DP? I liked them! Anyway, hopefully I can learn something before I leave again! :cancan:

Vicky, since this is brand new, we really don't know what all it will have. They will be adding more tools as they go. This is just the first release of the program so we're all pretty much in the dark as to what it will have but I'm sure it will be good!  :cancan:

I do not know, whether you have access to this page on Skillshare without being a registered member, but here somebody experimented to get the glitter effect in AD:

These glitters do look nice, don't they?
