Serif Affinity publishing is as much about layout as it is about image manipulation, and Affinity Publisher brings all the tools you need to the table (as long as you’ve purchased the other two apps as well), to give you a powerful and elegant solution. If a version 1 product is this good, Affinity could become a serious contender in a few years.
Long ago there was a behemoth desktop publishing app, and anyone serious about design layout used it. Betting against it was a fool’s errand: Quark Xpress reigned supreme.
Then a little upstart company which achieved good success with its photo editing software thought it’d throw its hat into the ring. Adobe’s original endeavor, while praised for resolving long-standing issues, was also ridiculed, because how can anyone hope to compete with the current champion? That little upstart app was InDesign, and we all know where Adobe now stands when it comes to catering for all the needs of image creatives.
Serif is a small British company with ambitious goals. Under its ‘Affinity’ banner, the company has already released a Photoshop competitor – Affinity Photo – and an Illustrator competitor – Affinity Designer. Both of these apps are available for Mac, Windows and iPad.
Last month, Serif released its latest salvo, setting its sights squarely on InDesign with Affinity Publisher.
Pricing is unbelievably competitive. Unlike Adobe’s subscription plans, all Affinity apps are available for a one-off affordable price: £48.99/$49.99 each, for either Mac or Windows (iPad versions of Photo and Designer sell for £19.99/$19.99). Free trials are also available for the desktop versions, so there’s no reason not to check them out.
Powerful and affordable
This review is about Publisher, but we have to mention Photo and Designer as well, for reasons that will become clear later on.
So how good is Publisher at desktop publishing?
Looking at Serif’s website, it seems like it’s covering all the bases, with support for multiple types of image formats (such as AI, JPEG, PDF, PMG, PSD or TIFF), and tools we’ve all come to expect from any DTP suite. The latter includes text styles, text on a path, OpenType support, flow options to avoid orphaned or widowed lines, advanced guides and grids, support for double page spreads, master pages, and so forth.
But an app is more than the sum of its features. So, how does Designer actually handle?
Considering it’s a brand new app, released in late June 2019 (despite the fact it’s already at version 1.7.1), it runs remarkably well.
Everything feels quick and responsive. Moving an image warps the text instantly, so you can see the changes and be as precise as you need to be, even on an old computer (we tested it on a 2014 MacBook Pro with 16GB of RAM and an ever-dwindling amount of storage space).
This kind of responsiveness and on-the-fly changes are felt throughout. Highlight some text for instance, and as you scroll over different fonts, you can see the highlighted text update before you even click on your selected font. The change is instant and this is a great way to choose the perfect font for your needs.
All of this is nice and all, and could entice some folks on a budget to try the app out as a means of avoiding an ongoing Adobe subscription, but responsiveness and elegance isn’t really a killer feature.
