Aside – and I know you didn’t ask – the Affinity suite of products on macOS are excellent for the (one-off) price, and have replaced the Adobe products I used to use occasionally. You’ll need a relatively recent macOS to try them out, but definitely worth an evaluation if you have another Mac you can use.

Yes those are very good products – and quite similar to the adobe ones to use, so an easy transition. and they support macOS back to 10.9…

for photos and similar I use Acorn though, but I think it needs a recent version of MacOS.

Wow, that far? Impressive.

I remember Acorn from one of the Mac bundles of yesteryear (?Macheist). I learned about so many great apps that way, and ended up paying for upgrades since they were so useful.

It is a bit freaky indeed. I had to check twice and ask my cat to confirm what my lying eyes saw. Tech specs for Photo.

Without trying to derail the thread, I second Affinity Photo. It’s bloody marvellous. After a trial on Pete’s recommendation, I bought the PC version in a Black Friday deal, and the Mac version during their recent COVID half price deal. An absolute steal at the price for the power afforded.

PS i am a hold out on Sierra because of Photoshop/Adobe.

You could dual-boot a Sierra installation and something more recent, I have a few clients with ooooold versions of FileMaker that don’t see a need to upgrade it (i.e. it works, save the money), but they have another supported macOS on the same hard drive for daily driver use. Much safer that way, especially if you’re internet-connected.

(And I’ll let it go, now.)

i have bought the Affinity suite. i use Publisher without issues. Still grappling with Photo! These apps are awesome and they are integrated. And they work just fine in Sierra.

Yay! I haven’t bought Publisher as I’m still swapping InDesign files with others, but I might take the plunge if they have a sale this year.

Still grappling with Photo!

Most of the shortcuts are the same as Photoshop, but there are a few things that are done differently. One thing until very recently that bugged me was that as I pinch-zoomed on the trackpad I’d occasionally twist too, which rotated the picture a few degrees. Perfect if you’re an artist for changing stroke angle, but annoying if you’re in the middle of cropping a pic using rectangular selections. Couldn’t find a way to ‘reset’ the viewing angle to ‘0’ degrees, but luckily there’s a setting buried in Preferences to turn the rotation feature off so I’ve done that which helps my fat fingers no end.
