Affinity Designer is currently on sale for 50% off the regular price. Here is a link to their website…
I have been using Designer for a couple of months now and I find it easier to use than Inkscape, and MUCH less expensive than Illustrator and Corel Draw.
The only drawback I’ve seen so far is there is no auto-trace function, but the developers say that will be coming.
I am not affiliated with Affinity in any way, just giving everyone here in the Lightburn community a heads-up to a bargain.
