    I used PhotoShop for many years to do old photo restoration. It just got too bloated and expensive. Affinity is AWESOME. It does all I need, it's well priced and the tutorials are exceptional.

    All set to buy as a Photoshop alternative save one profound problem. How the heck do you move or cut and paste a selection without the entire layer being copied, pasted or moved? I have spent hours on YouTube and in your own tutorials and cannot figure out how to do this. Simple cut-and-paste does not work and I could really use a heads up to help me make a decision in buying.

    Although I have been using Photoshop over many years, not only do I absoutely love Affinity, but I find the tutorials clear, crisp and to the point! Thx, brilliant work! ps: Affinity is a real threat to the overprized PS! Keep up the good work!
