About Affinity Photo

Affinity Photo is a graphic design software that provides photographers and creative professionals with tools to edit images on a centralized platform. Supervisors can merge high dynamic range (HDR) images, overlap and stitch panoramic shots, and combine multiple pictures using the focus stacking functionality.

Affinity Photo allows designers to perform real-time image rendering, edit photoshop document (PSD) files, and utilize studio presets for UI layouts. Artists can correct color casts and remove blemishes or unwanted objects with magical inpainting brushes or patch removal tools. It also lets users apply filters across single layers or multiple stacks, add live liquify layers, and view the preview of edited images in full resolution.

Affinity Photo enables creative professionals to adjust exposure or white balance, edit metadata, and mask or erase specific sections of images. The software also helps users view histograms, add copyright information in batches, and perform lens corrections in photos.

Affinity Photo: The Best Photo Editing Software You'll Ever Use

I really enjoyed using Affinity Photo. The interface was easy to learn and the features were very versatile. I was able to easily improve the quality of my photos and add personal touches with ease. I would definitely recommend this software to anyone looking for an easy-to-use photo editor.

Pros

Affinity Photo is a powerful photo editing software that has everything you need to get the most out of your photos. Whether you're a beginner or a pro, you'll love the easy-to-use interface and the wide range of features. And the low price, you just buy it once!

Cons

While I really like the wide range of features and easy-to-use interface, I didn't like that there wasn't a built-in way to create photo collages. It would be great if there was an easier way to combine several photos into one cohesive image. But with some easy tutorials you can make these really fast!

Affinity Photo is a breeze to learn and use. I've been long-frustrated with Adobe's pricey subscription model and bloated Creative Cloud software that runs in the background. Affinity Photo released me from this yolk; it launches quickly, and I got it on sale with Affinity Designer (vector editor) for only $79 CANADIAN. Wow.

Pros

Affinity Photo gives Adobe Photoshop a real run for its money. It can do everything that PS can do, and the interface is almost identical, so longtime users won't find it difficult to switch. And there's no expensive subscription. A perpetual license costs the same as 1-2 months of Adobe CC!

Cons

There are some crucial keyboard/mouse differences that will cause confusion for most Adobe users, and the default text is just too small on Retina monitors.

Alternatives Considered

Pixelmator Pro

Reasons for Choosing Affinity Photo

Adobe is expensive and bloated. Affinity Photo is quick and light.

Switched From

Reasons for Switching to Affinity Photo

I found Pixelmator slightly more confusing.

Had a great experience with Affinity I still use it from time to time for my marketing graphics for my car dealership. Definitely one of my favorite tools in my toolbox.

Pros

As stated in the title it is a cheap and effective way to edit RAW and PSD files on the go without paying for adobes monthly subscription fees. I like how it is customizable toolbars and you can setup shortcuts to hop to features you need to us. It runs very smooth on my desktop and laptop with mid-grade specs.

Cons

I feel some of the features are a bit outdated compared to photoshop, it takes a bit longer to do the same thing I could do in gimp/adobe.

We tried the app as soon as it was presented and shortly after we decided that, despite some missing features of the first versions, it would become our image editing software.
After years we do not regret the choice: the workflow runs fast and there are no limits.
The app is constantly developing also on the reports of us users.
No limits, very fast.

Pros

UI and UX are the best, not for nothing the software has earned some design awards.
Resources consumption is very good, so making changes and editing will be faster.

Cons

In my option, the very lost feature is a fully compatibility with Adobe PS smart objects: we can use embedded files as a an alternative.

Does 95% of what Photoshop can do, but for 95% less money. It's a no brainer.

I use it for personal photo editing, for web design, and some light logo design. I think the product is marvelous, and they just keep making it better.

Pros

This software does everything the average photo editing user could ever need, and almost anything a professional could need as well. It's easy to learn, easy to use, and it doesn't have any recurring fees. This is an absolute must have purchase.

Cons

Nothing. Honestly, I don't have a single con I can think of. I own this on PC and iPad Pro and I can't think of a single con.
