Affinity Spring Sale: Up to 50% Off

You might have seen some of my articles about Affinity Photo and how it is a wonderfully cost-effective solution for both advanced amateurs and professional photographers when it comes to retouching images. Well, if you have been holding out for a discount on purchase of Affinity apps, then now might be the right time to make that purchase, with the Affinity Spring Sale ‘24.

Affinity apps are on sale, currently, with the apps getting a discount of 30% and add-ons getting a discount of up to 50%. It is a one-time purchase.

What Are Affinity Apps Good For?

In addition to having the Affinity Photo 2 app, Affinity has two other apps, called Affinity Designer 2, and publisher.

Affinity Photo 2 is similar to Adobe Photoshop and can be used to retouch images or create raster artwork, Affinity Publisher 2 is similar to Adobe InDesign, and can be used for creating text publications, and Affinity Designer 2 is similar to Adobe Illustrator and is great for creating vector artwork.

Features and Abilities

In addition to being cost-effective, especially in the long term, the apps are full-featured, and in my experience are not a compromise in quality, or ability… In fact, there are some features that Affinity Photo has, that Photoshop struggles to keep up with.

Learning Curve

Though there is a great deal of similarity to Photoshop in the interface, menus, and features, there are enough differences that there is a bit of a learning curve. If you’re new to image editing, that makes it a great time to learn how to use Affinity Apps.

If you’re a long-time Photoshop user, it might take a little more time to get over your learned muscle memory. I know because I’ve experienced this myself. However, in the end, I find that Affinity apps is certainly worth the time invested.

Affinity V2 Universal License

Unlike Adobe apps, which have a subscription format, Affinity sells the apps at a reasonable one-time price. This means that you can continue to use the app as long as you have it without any further payment. Updates are provided free of cost, at regular intervals.

Affinity Photo 2.4 has just been released and brings with it some interesting new features and quality of life updates. If you already have Affinity Photo, or any of the affinity version 2 apps, then you do not need to pay anything, until their version 3 apps are released, and you find that v2 isn’t making the cut. Or, if it has a feature that is interesting to you. However, this won’t be for a while.

Affinity also has a V2 Universal License for the version 2 apps, which means that you get all their desktop and iPad apps both for macOS and windows. this is an incredible deal and you can also install them on as many computers as you personally own and control. I have explained this in dedicated article on the topic, linked above.

Where You Can Buy

You can purchase Affinity apps from their website directly , or download the app from the Apple App Store or The Microsoft Store, and then purchase the app. Either way you can avail the 30% discount until the spring sale closes. Affinity have not mentioned an end date, so don’t delay.
