Affinity Photo, a popular MacOS photo editor, received Apple's "App of the Year" award in 2015. It isn't just for MacOS users anymore though, as developer Serif has announced that a beta version of Affinity Photo for Windows is now available.
Earlier this year, Serif announced Affinity Photo 1.5, which will introduce HDR merging, focus stacking and more. The beta version available now for Windows matches the Mac version's features set and even includes some of the upcoming version 1.5's new features.
Of the Windows version, Serif's Managing Director of Affinity Ashley Hewson says, " When we started developing our Affinity apps nearly seven years ago one of the key aims was to be cross-platform, so this is a huge milestone for us. Because we did plan this from the beginning we made nearly all of our back-end code – the core engine of Affinity, if you like – completely operating system independent. This not only means that file compatibility between the two platforms is 100% perfect, but all the power, performance, tools and accuracy which have really set us apart on Mac are there for Windows users to enjoy now too.”
