Affinity - Imagined by designers, created for professionals

Affinity Photo now on Windows – and gets a huge 1.5 update

We’re really pleased to let you know that we have launched Affinity Photo 1.5. We’ve had this in development now for over six months, so it’s an absolutely huge update – without a doubt the biggest we have done yet.

Not only that, the launch of 1.5 coincides with Affinity Photo going on sale for Windows.

Focus merge in Affinity Photo 1.5

New features you can look forward to include HDR merge; Direct PSD write back; Macros; Tone mapping; Focus merge; Batch processing; New filters; 360 image editing; RAW improvements and much more.

See the new features

We think these announcements provide two genuine reasons to celebrate today for professionals who want a powerful, high-end image editor.

The launch of Affinity Photo for Windows means we’ve fulfilled our ambition to become a truly cross-platform presence, which was one of the core targets for us when we started developing Affinity apps, seven years ago.


Almost all our back-end code was designed to work regardless of the operating system, which delivers 100% perfect file compatibility between the two platforms.

As always if you already own Affinity Photo this update is completely free, you can go download it now from the Mac App Store. As part of the update you can also claim a free pack of macros, you will get a link to that from the welcome screen in the app.


If you don’t yet own Affinity Photo then it’s a great time to buy as we have just reduced the price by 20% to celebrate the launch of this fantastic update to only £29.99 / US$39.99 / €39.99.

This, along with the free macro pack, is only available for a limited time so don’t miss out!

Ross, I believe putting this question on the forum will lead to a higher amount of response.

Kinda stinks that the first entry on your blog advertises a price that doesn't exist.

Alfred -

I am photoshop user, and I wish to try the Affinity photo software, is there a trail that I can try please to compare ? Best Regards Alfred

Vicky -

I am new to affinity products. Do you have a trial for windows, which i can use to evaluate the product.

Laercio -

I'm photoshop user. Is the monthly payment or is this amount for an annual license? Is there a trail that I can try? Tks

Julie -

Laercio, for each affinity's app the price is for an "eternal" licence, I mean you paid only once and that allows you to have the app and free updates. There is no subscription needed. See here : I don't know if there is a trail, but you can ask that on the Facebook of Affinity, they are pretty responsive.

@Ross: You will need a 64bit CPU and version of Windows. If you have a 64bit CPU but a 32bit version of Windows you will just need to install a 64bit version of Windows 7 SP1 or above for our apps to work :)

Leigh -

@Alfred & Vicky: We should have a trial version available soon. We'll keep everyone updated.
