A couple of weeks ago, Serif released its powerful photo editing software called Affinity Photo. This Adobe Photoshop competitor has since been downloaded by numbers of users and has already seen a couple of improvement through an update. Its price and its speed are probably two of the most notable advantages the software offers over Photoshop. While the reviews are slowly making their way to different websites, many photographers and retouchers seem to be wondering if the software is worth its price.
In the article I wrote for the official announcement of the final release, I promised you a full review of the software, and it is coming soon. I wanted to wait for one or two updates of the software as I don't wish to judge a first version. The bugs found in the first versions are usually quickly corrected and not worth receiving a public critic that will stay on the web for months or years... In the meantime, Affinity Photo has a great solution for you if you are not sure whether it is worth investing $50 or not. They just released a free 10-day trial version. You can get it from their website in just a couple of clicks. This way you will be able to decide for yourself if Adobe reign is over and the time to move onto something new and fresh has come.
N.B.: Because I am most likely certain this will be asked in the comments below, no, this trial is still not compatible with other OS than Mac OS X.
