Alternative Creative Pro Suite?

Postby Matthias Guenther (Quark) » 19 May 2017, 03:52

Hi all,

we saw several people asking what the best alternatives are, when you are not seeing "renting" as a fair model.

I have shared some thoughts and my personal picks here: ... tal-suite/

Which tools are you using? Do you pick the best ones yourself? Or do you go with what you get within a Suite or Bundle?

Feel there should be more chatting, more tips, more user interaction?

Recently installed Adobe CC 2017. I'm using Illustrator and Photoshop. I gave InDesign a try but it's got a lot of things I don't particularly care for. On top of that the whole thing seems to be bloated.

So, back to still using ID CS4 for layout.

I'm starting to look into Affinity however. They seem to have a nice suite there.
