Yesterday I was on this Photopils Milky Way Photography Post Processing Masterclass with Nick Page on YouTube and a number of folks mentioned in the comments that they moved to Affinity Photo from Lightroom/Photoshop and are happy. Does anyone use this? I had a look at their web page https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/photo/ and it looks very interesting. It is a license purchase at US$ 49.99. It has a free trial too. I will check it out. Apparently it can use Photoshop plugins too!
