Serif, the developers of the Affinity suite of software programs, has come up with an unprecedented plan to help support photographers, designers and other creatives during the coronavirus pandemic. It is offering a new 90-day free trial on each of its three programs – and it is cutting the cost of each of them by half.

Affinity Photo is one of our favorite photo editors... and for good reason. This is a really powerful image editing program - but comes at a price that is really affordable compared to its competitors. 

Now thanks to this scheme photographers can get the program outright for just $25 / £23.99.... unlike Photoshop CC (which is probably its main competitor) there are no monthly fees to pay. The deal is available worldwide and lasts until 20 April.

In addition, people will all alternatively be able to us the Affinity programs for a 90-day trial period – which will be particularly helpful to students and creatives who are not being forced to work and study at home on their own computers. 

The offer is available across the Affinity range... which will be particularly tempting if you are looking for a pro-spec, affordable graphics or desktop publishing program. Affinity Designer was the first in this powerful suite of programs, and after five years of refinement gives a great alternative to Adobe Illustrator. The new Affinity Publisher, meanwhile, can be seen as a serious alternative to programs like Adobe InDesign.... but at a much, much more affordable price for the home or small office. 

Serif Managing Director Ashley Hewson says: “Unfortunately we are hearing many stories from the creative community about how they are being severely impacted by the effects of the pandemic.

“We know we can’t solve many of these problems, but hopefully these things will make life a little easier for people who rely on creative software to make a living but may be stuck at home without access to their usual tools, or for students who might suddenly be without access to their Affinity apps on their personal devices".

Serif is also pledging to engage more than 100 freelance creatives for work, spending the equivalent of its annual commissioning budget in the next three months. More details are expected on this soon.
