Affinity Photo made some waves went it debuted on the Mac and for good reason. Not only was it affordably priced but it was also pretty powerful and you got support and updates. Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom are often thought of as the premiere photo editing tools for professionals, and there is no doubt they are amazing. Affinity Photo is looking to change that perception and offers some rich tools and a wonderful interface that matches Photoshop/Lightroom blow for blow.
Now this pretty powerful photo editing program is being launched on the Windows platform as a public beta. Users will be able to experience Affinity Photo first hand without having to pay upfront for the program. After the public beta is over you will then be offered the opportunity to purchase the license for a very reasonable $49.99USD. That fifty dollars gets you not only the program and all its features but it also gets you updates and support and that my friends, is an amazing deal.
Ashley Hewson, Managing Director of Affinity developer Serif, says: “When we started developing our Affinity apps nearly seven years ago one of the key aims was to be cross-platform, so this is a huge milestone for us. Because we did plan this from the beginning we made nearly all of our back-end code – the core engine of Affinity, if you like – completely operating system independent.
“This not only means that file compatibility between the two platforms is 100% perfect, but all the power, performance, tools and accuracy which have really set us apart on Mac are there for Windows users to enjoy now too.”
Affinity Photo’s awe-inspiring range of tools work in real-time, so there’s no waiting to see results. Non-destructive editing, RAW processing and end-to-end colour management are standard, so Affinity Photo has all the accuracy and quality necessary to make beautiful images spring to life.
