Serif have just released version 1.9 of Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer. Affinity Designer has long been one of my favourite applications and Affinity Photo is perhaps the best “Photoshop alternatives” you can buy today. Both applications got a decent number of new features in the free 1.9 update.
- new Contour tool
- Select Object and Select Same tools
- Create custom brushes from a pixel layer
- Link and package files
- Studio presets (save your workspace settings)
- Linked layers
- Astrophotography stracking
- GPU Hardware Acceleration on Windows
- Pattern Layers
- Studio Presets
Even better, they are carrying on their Covid-19% half price sale, so you can currently purchase both products for 50% off on their online store. Instead of annoying monthly subscriptions, you can pick up excellent alternatives to Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator for just $30 each!
