Photoshop and the Future

Recently, Photoshop turned 25 years old, and Adobe decided to ‘celebrate the tool that has helped shape creativity’ by combining the work of artists from all over the world and animate their working files into a mind-blowing video, complete with Steven Tyler.

If you haven’t already seen the video, check it out below!

Yeah, like I said, it’s freaking mind-blowing.

But, this leads to the question of where Photoshop is going next?

Affinity Photo has emerged to challenge Adobe’s monopoly on the photo-editing market. Brought to you by Serif, the application is exclusively available to Mac users and promises ‘real-time editing,’ which means you’ll no longer have to wait for effects to render, or deal with apply buttons before you can see changes take place.

On top of this, it provides what they’re calling ‘loss-less scaling,’ which means that when you rescale an image, no pixels get removed permanently as they do in Adobe Photoshop.

You can sign up for the beta version here, or wait for the full version, which can be purchased for about $50 from the App store without any subscription costs, and access to free updates for the next two years. See some of the features in their video here.

Do you think Affinity Photo can replace Adobe Photoshop?
Would you use it instead of Adobe?
