Key features: affinity photo
Dedicated Raw editing work space: Affinity’s dedicated Develop persona allows you to make initial adjustments and perfect your Raw files before moving on to further editing – and it’s exactly the same on both desktop and ipad applications. It supports all major camera file formats and offers advanced editing tools such as White Balance, exposure, clarity, shadows & highlights as well as colour control, along with advanced lens distortion corrections and selective adjustments.
professional photography tools: Because Affinity has been designed solely with photographers in mind, it contains all of the essential tools that you’ll need to bring the best out of your images. From a library of brushes to gradients, dodge & burn tools and clone, patch and healing tools, to advanced selection and red- eye removal, each is as intuitive as the last and behaves exactly the way you’d expect.
live previews: No more waiting around for effects to render to see if the changes you’ve made are correct or not – with live previews of filters, adjustment layers and blend modes, you can see the effect before you’ve even applied the adjustment. This results in quicker, more efficient editing. Adjustment layers can be reordered, tweaked, reduced in opacity and masked as you’d expect, so fine- tuning your photographs to perfection is simple.
advanced editing modes: Whether on desktop or ipad, if you’ve several exposures to combine, then Affinity offers accurate automatic alignment of multiple images with powerful user- control. So, if you've captured a vast panoramic landscape, a detailed focus- stacked macro image or a HDR bracketed sequence, Affinity is smart enough to stitch the images seamlessly, whilst allowing you greater control over your final image.
sophisticated selections: Making accurate selections is a key part of editing, and Affinity’s advanced selection refinement algorithm is here to help you pick only the parts you want. No- one enjoys making laborious selections, and with Affinity the process is made easy – whether it’s an entire sky in a landscape or individual hairs in a portrait that need selecting, Affinity affords you as much or as little manual control as you need.
