Fast, customisable effects

Affinity Photo comes with a huge range of high-end filters including lighting, blurs, distortions, tilt-shift, shadows, glows and many more. Full control is given over every aspect of a filter’s properties with incredibly precise controls—all the while seeing a real-time live preview of the result. Best of all, filters can be applied as live layers, enabling you to edit, erase away, or mask effects after they have been applied.

Advanced adjustment layers

Correct and enhance images with Levels, Curves, Black and White, White Balance, HSL, Shadows and Highlights and over a dozen other adjustments that are previewed instantly and can be edited any time. Adjust, readjust, and drag and drop onto any layer, group, mask, or in any place in a stack to control how they’re applied.

Live blend modes

Remove trial and error from your workflow—see changes to blend modes live as you edit without having to click apply each time. Affinity Photo’s 30 layer blends preview smoothly in real time while you scroll through them.

Sophisticated selection refinement

Accurate selections are critical, whether cutting out objects, creating masks or selectively applying adjustments. Our selection refinement algorithm is one of the most advanced available, making selections—even down to individual strands of hair—easier than ever before.

Precise photo stitching

Affinity Photo’s stitching algorithm is one of the most advanced available. On top of accurate automatic alignment and perspective corrections, you get full control over each image and boundary in the composite to fine tune to perfection.

Extensive retouching tools

Whether you want to make quick corrections, or spend an hour on a detailed retouch, Affinity Photo has all the tools you need. That naturally includes dodge, burn, clone, patch, blemish, and red eye tools. But you’ll also find an incredibly accurate inpainting brush, frequency separation capability, and a full set of liquify features built-in.
