Thank you, Karen. I'm looking at Affinity's page now and it looks like the price is $49.99. Compatible with OS X 10.7 and later. Interesting that "Publisher" will be released. It suggests the company is making a stronger commitment to providing competition for Adobe.

I have no experience with their software, but the topic also came up on my computer user group forum, so I looked into it. It is NOT subscription based; a license is paid for in one fell swoop - at about $60 per program.
