In the past few years, serious alternatives to Photoshop have started to crop up, with Affinity Photo being one of the most comprehensive options. If you are looking for a subscription-free alternative to Photoshop, check out this great look at using Affinity Photo to edit a beauty image.
Coming to you from Kayleigh June, this excellent video takes a look at using Affinity Photo for more involved edits — in this case, a beauty image. Up until the last few years, there were few alternatives to Photoshop for really complicated editing work, but Affinity has been one of the new options and has led the pack a bit. If you are looking to avoid repetitive subscription fees, it is a great alternative (and it is on sale right now for 50% off). I use Affinity Photo on my iPad, and I really enjoy it. It is quite intuitive to use and impressively capable and powerful. I have never had an issue with any sort of complex edits, and it offers a very complete solution — great if you are still waiting for the full version of Photoshop to be released for the iPad. Check out the video above for June's full thoughts.
