We have just found out that the incredible deal that has been running on Affinity Photo and its sister suite of software is about to end. Three months ago, 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 has been offering a 90-day free trial on each of its three programs – and it is cutting the cost of each of them by half. This has reduced the price from a very affordable $50, down to an almost-giveaway £25

But all things come to an end - and we have just learned that this discount and the extended trial will end on 20 June. We are told that there have been over 250,000 free 90-day trial downloads over the three month period.

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, and was originally due to end on 20 April, but was extended due the success of the promotion.

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.

A really powerful image editing program that works on PC or Mac, that is high up the list of the best photo editors. The price gets you the latest version, and you get to own the software outright - so there are no monthly fees. Affinity Photo is always a great value buy... but this price makes it an absolute steal.

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 also launched a few other initiatives, including 100 Days. 100. Commissions—in which we engaged more than 100 freelance creatives for work - and Lockdown 2020: Affinity Creative Sessions, which provided 31 videos of inspirational, artist-led tutorials that have since garnered more than 40,000 hours of views in total.
