On Thursday, July 11, the SDMUG presentation will explore Affinity’s new software: Affinity Photo, Affinity Designer and Affinity Publisher. Put them together and this may very well be the answer to Adobe’s Creative Suite at a fraction of the price! On the App Store, reviewers rate these at least 4.5 out of 5 stars, plus EACH Affinity app has also earned the Editor’s Choice tag! Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer are also available as iOS apps. Each of the Affinity apps for Mac OS are sold (not “rented”) for $49.99; iOS versions of the Photo and Designer apps are $19.99.
We will also discuss the upcoming OS 10.15 “Catalina” release. Topics will include new features and how management of your music, photos and videos may be changing, plus how to see if your applications are compatible (the 64-bit software requirement will be enforced in 10.15).
Our meetings are held in the Community Room of the La Jolla Village Square shopping center. The room is on the same floor as the underground parking next to Best Buy and the theaters. Enter from the parking garage, proceed about 200 feet, on the right. (Opposite the escalators that lead to the theater admission area.) If accessing from the outdoor parking, go to the theater’s box office, look for the escalators and go down one level. The Community Room entry is directly ahead, about 50 feet from the escalators.
