We have just found out that the incredible 2020 deal on Affinity Photo and its sister suite of software is about restart. During the early months of the pandemic, 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 cut the cost of each program by half. This 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 2022.
Affinity Photo is one of our favorite photo editors (opens in new tab)... 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 (opens in new tab).... unlike Photoshop CC (which is probably its main competitor) there are no monthly fees to pay. The deal is available worldwide.
A really powerful image editing program that works on PC or Mac, that is high up the list of the best photo editors (opens in new tab). 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 desktop publishing solution in the Affinity suite... perfect for those who want to design their own newsletters, magazines or books with professional standard software. Available for both Mac or PC Windows.
Professional standard graphics design software - perfect for those who want to create their own illustrations. Available for both Windows PCs, Apple Macs or iPads.
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 (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab), 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.
