The wait is finally over! We’re delighted to announce the public beta of Affinity Photo!
Like Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo is built for creative professionals. It’s a brand new tool for photographers and raster artists with a refreshingly awesome level of performance. Unlike other affordable apps it’s unashamedly pro even as a beta version, supporting end-to-end CMYK, LAB colour, 16-bits per channel editing, ICC colour profiling, and fantastic Adobe® Photoshop® PSD and 64-bit plug-in support right from the start. With your input it’ll get even better!
Performance is silky-smooth and the tools are high-end, including Frequency Separation editing, live blend modes, and inpainting, all wrapped up in task-focused, uncluttered workspaces. Check out the video below — we think creative professionals could fall in love with photo editing and raster art all over again!
I downloaded the Beta Version and will use it the next couple of days. I’ve been using Photoshop from version 3.0 on so I’m curious if this application will steal my heart. After all this is Valentine’s Weekend.
