Introducing Affinity Photo
Affinity Photo redefines the boundaries for professional photo editing software for the Mac. With a meticulous focus on workflow it offers sophisticated tools for enhancing, editing and retouching your images in an incredibly intuitive interface with all the power and performance you need.
The following are the features of Affinity Photo
Interface – Affinity uses a similar approach to Photoshop, with a tool rail on the left and information, settings, layers, and filter panels on the right. But notice that it uses modes, called Personas, for raw file developing, photo editing, liquefy, tone mapping, and export. These are indicated by the colorful icons at top left.
Pre-develop – Before you can start editing a raw camera file, you have to develop it in this workspace.
Brushes – The program includes over a hundred brushes, with customizable tips.
Auto-level – After a raw camera file has been developed, the Photos mode offers buttons for automatic levels, white balance, contrast, and color. These are the buttons at top center. Before developing, but not after, you can correct lens issues like chromatic aberration and geometric distortion.
Fonts – The program supports OpenType fonts.
HDR – You can combine multiple images shot at different exposures for a balanced lighting effect.
Liquefy- lets you push pixels around for artsy effects.
Tone Mapping with Selection Mask – Selecting areas based on luminosity is not as straightforward as it is in competing software.
Tone Mapping – You can do a lot with selection masks and layers. Here, the surfer is selected, sharpened, and made black-and-white.
Typography – You get detailed control over type options, including ligatures, but it’s not as complete as Adobe’s glyph tool in Illustrator.
Vector Pen – You can create and edit vector images as well as bitmaps in the same program, something not possible in Adobe’s software.
Export – Export options include both vector and raster formats.
