We have just found out that the incredible 2020 deal on Affinity Photo and its sister suite of software is about restart. Last year, Serif, the developers of the Affinity suite of software programs, came up with an unprecedented plan to help support photographers, designers and other creatives during the coronavirus pandemic. It offered a 90-day free trial on each of its three programs – and cut the cost of each of them by half. This has reduced the price from a very affordable $50, down to an almost-giveaway $25

There were over 250,000 downloads of the free 90-day trial during the three month period of this extraordinary promo. And the good news is that the offer is back for 2021.

“Last year, to support that community, we made all our apps free for anyone to use for 90 days", explains Ashley Hewson, Serif's Managing Director, "We were humbled and overwhelmed by the response. When that offer ended it appeared things were getting better and we all hoped that by now, the situation would have continued to improve. Sadly it’s clear that the pandemic continues to have a serious impact. So from today, we are again offering a 90-day free trial of the Mac and Windows versions of the whole Affinity suite, for anyone who wants to use it. Even if you used the trial last year, you can do it again".

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. 

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.

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 now 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 over 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.
