Photoshop Alternative: Affinity Photo’s Windows Beta is Now Live

Photographers, in large part, rely heavily on Adobe and their ecosystem fo applications, chiefly among them being Photoshop. There have been alternatives to crop up here and there but for the most part, they have never really gained much traction. Well, there is a new player in town for Windows users, Affinity Photo.

Affinity Photo has launched their Windows-based public beta, which is free for the duration of the beta, for users to download starting today. The app, which was announced many months ago has finally gotten to a point where they feel that it is ready for the public to help them work out the kinks before its final launch.

In Mac land, the Affinity Photo app was Apple’s App of the Year in 2015 and it has racked up quite a following and has received numerous great reviews from photographers all over the world. The Windows beta of this app will no doubt bring a larger swatch of photographers to the table – the interesting thing here will be how many of them like what they find and decide to replace Photoshop.

Those interested in downloading the Windows beta can get all the information over on the Affinity Photo website, here.
