Affinity Photo Luminar


A message from the Affinity team

Judging Affinity Photo vs Lightroom, we must clearly understand that these two apps are designed for different tasks. Lightroom editing software is targeted at fast image color correction of a great number of images simultaneously. As for Affinity Photo, it is used to perform advanced picture retouching of each picture separately. Choose Lightroom if you work with RAW files since it is perfect for cropping the. Affinity Photo 1.9 and Luminar 4 have different perspectives on photo editing. The first (Affinity Photo) aims to provide advanced tools for adjusting and fine-tuning each aspect of your photos. Luminar embraces Artificial Intelligence (AI) and aims to provide automatic tools for fast and efficient editing without too much human intervention.

As a way to lend support to the creative community during these difficult times, we’re once again offering a 90-day free trial of the Mac and Windows versions of the whole Affinity suite, for anyone who wants to use them (even those who have previously completed a free trial). We’re also bringing back the 50% discount for those who would prefer to buy and keep the apps, including our iPad versions.
