    How can sketch replace Photoshop? What is its primary use? And does it handle 100+ layer visual designs?

      Between Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo and Sketch you can do pretty much anything Photoshop does, better. Sketch's main strength is UI design. Other vector and bitmap designs are better handled in Affinity software.

      Performance-wise, Sketch has no problems at all handling 300+ MB files with 1000+ elements.

      Only thing I couldn't find a better alternative for is digital painting.

      Its not meant to totally replace it. Sketch is simply an alternative for ui designers. Photoshop was and still is hugely bloated, because it was trying to cater for everyone.

      Obviously if you're wanting to touch up some photos, then you would stick with Photoshop. But for anything web/app orientated, then sketch is the way forward.
