If you work as a photographer or you're a photography enthusiast then you should know how important the software you're editing your works with really is. In order to aid individuals who love to take and edit photos, Serif Ltd developed a software program called Affinity Photo. This utility introduces an impressive amount of features that can help users edit and retouch photos in various manners.

It comes wrapped in a beautifully-designed interface, with nicely shaped buttons and menus, and well-delimited page sections. It lacks skin themes, but it does provide numerous customization options. At times, if you don't own a high-end computer, menu navigation may become a bit laggy.

The program offers users lots of useful and reliable tools for creating true masterpieces. Along with the classic photo utilities, such as blur, clone, pen, paint bucket, or the magnifying glass, you have massive image support and super smooth pan and zoom at 60fps.

However, the big plus is represented by the set of retouching tools. Within it, you'll find a dedicated liquify workspace for sculpting features, blemish removal tools, or smooth and retouch skin with frequency separation. Also, it embeds live filter layers, with effects like blur, lighting, or distortions. The filter effects can be added in a non-destructive manner, have a full-resolution preview and can be applied to single layers or over a whole layer stack. more
