Affinity Publisher

Graphic designing software for creative professionals

About Affinity Publisher

Affinity Publisher is a graphic designing software that helps creative professionals and publishers combine images, texts, and graphics to create personalized layouts for books, website mock-ups, and marketing materials. Administrators can unify text style across multiple pages, add lines or borders, and manage the baseline grid.

The platform enables managers to embed images, pin graphics, add drop caps, and type along curves to visualize text on a unified interface. Affinity Publisher allows teams to place files in PSD, PDF, AI, JPG, PNG, and TIFF formats on customizable layouts. Operators can also edit hues, saturation, opacity, and luminosity shifts, facilitating crucial image corrections across documents.

Affinity Publisher lets businesses control gradients, add shadows, bevels, glows, and other layer effects, and use bitmap fills to create and edit vector graphics. Designers can also add, subtract, divide, and combine shapes to streamline Boolean operations on a centralized dashboard.

I've used Affinity Publisher to redesign my company's marketing flyers, envelopes and other branded documents with great success. Having worked with many other Desktop Publishing packages over the years I had no trouble adapting to Affinity's interface and processes.

Pros

Affinity Publisher is a clean, fast, feature-rich Desktop Publishing application which makes content creation and manipulation reasonably simple, but also has enough advanced tools that power-users will be satisfied with it as well. It integrates very well with the other Affinity applications (Designer and Photo) and works with files from many other applications as well. For the VERY reasonable price they charge this is a fantastic choice for Desktop Publishing Software.

Cons

The biggest criticism I have is that there aren't any document templates included out-of-the-box such as there are with other products like Microsoft Publisher. That being said, there are many options online which can be purchased to make up for this.

Disappointed.

Disappointed.

Pros

It's inexpensive. If all you are doing is designing flyers or other static publications, it's fine.

Cons

If you need mail or data merge, don't get this product. I've been using it for over a year and I still can't make it work. It mysteriously skips creating left or right side pages of two page layouts, and/or skips data records for no apparent reason. I've spent my entire career figuring out software, and this just doesn't work.
