Serif’s Affinity Photo is finally available for both Apple Mac and Windows users! As people become wary of Adobe’s monopoly and subscription pricing model for the ubiquitous Photoshop, a capable challenger is welcome news for everyone!
At the moment only the Mac has a trial version, but you get a money-back 14-days guarantee anyway. In addition, you are receiving a limited time discount if you make a purchase now.
The reason why the number of updates on this blog have slowed down is because I am currently busy experimenting with Affinity Photo. Oh, and there is my career work of course. 😛
If you are interested, you can grab Affinity Photo here. In my limited time with it, it is easily a superior experience to both the Gimp and Paintshop Pro. A lot of people will still be satisfied with using Lightroom alone. However, it does not hurt to give it a whirl and see for yourself if you would like to expand your post-processing options. Even if you bought it and didn’t have time to evaluate it in 14 days, it is probably just the cost of a (relatively inexpensive) nice meal for two persons in a fancy restaurant. So you really don’t have much to lose. – WY
