Coming as somewhat of a surprise for us this year was just how much we, as a team, would adopt Affinity Photo. A number of us on staff use both the desktop and iPad versions, even with Photoshop at out disposal. Serif has done, and continues to do well, and we would imagine that with broader market adoption the rate of improvement will only hasten.

Either way, it’s been a big year for Affinity, and to celebrate and round out the year they are giving away a number of freebies, and for those yet to welcome the Affinity family of apps into your workflow, they’re incentivizing you to do that with 20% and up discounts on their apps right now, through Jan 5th.

That’s quite something considering one of the compelling and curious things about Affinity is the price point – they far undercut the likes of Photoshop whilst providing little in the way of compromise, and put powerful apps within the hands of those who, otherwise, may do without.

We recommend Affinity Photo regularly, and if you’re looking for a gift you don’t need to depend on shipping for, these are worth considering.
