Affinity Photo for Windows

The wait is over! Apple´s best Mac app of 2015 is now available on Windows! "Affinity Photo” is a powerful Photoshop alternative and considerably cheaper, it retains the same variety of pro-level features Photoshop users require, with some even better and more intuitive to use. Affinity´s Windows version is practically identical to the Mac´s, and promises to be super fast, powerful, lightweight, and incredibly intuitive. It has many of the same functions and workflows as Photoshop, but its designed to be super fast for retouching images. It includes support for CMYK color, RAW files, 16-bit editing, ICC color management, and LAB color, plus support for Photoshop plug-ins, and the PSD files. To get an idea about what Affinity Photo can do, check out the video below. 

The Windows version is currently in free public beta. This allows interested parties to trial the software before it goes on sale in full version. It will be priced similar to the Mac version - US$49.99 (one-off payment that covers future updates)
