Re: AP vs. GIMP, non-destructive issue

In normal everyday life, this doesn't matter.

Most edits I do are on overly large out-of-camera JPEG images, and I export to a smaller pixel dimension file. So the original photo remains.

I have Affinity Photo, and like it, although it seems weird after years of using Photoshop, PaintShopPro, and GIMP. There's no compelling reason to learn it because GIMP is sufficient for pixel editing. For non-destructive editing I have DxO.

GIMP is especially nice because if all you have is a JPEG, it can save at the same quality level and chroma subsampling, helping prevent re-artifacting. Also it exports WebP and HEIC. I did not notice either feature in Affinity.
