We’re thrilled to announce that the Affinity Photo Windows beta is now available. This means if you’re a PC user you can finally get your hands on the app, and during the beta period it’s completely free!
On Mac, Affinity Photo was chosen as Apple’s App of the Year 2015, and voted Best Imaging Software 2016 by the Technical Image Press Association. It has also received thousands of 5-star reviews from professional photographers, editors, artists and retouchers from all around the world.

The Windows version matches the Mac version feature-for-feature, so all the thrilling speed, sophisticated tools and pinpoint accuracy which have earned Affinity Photo its formidable reputation are now available to Windows users too without compromise.
What’s more the Windows version shares exactly the same back-end as our Mac version so you can be confident the file compatibility between both platforms will always be 100% perfect.

When we started developing our Affinity apps over 7 years ago one of our key aims was to be cross-platform, so today marks a huge milestone for us. It’s been an incredible amount of work to get here, and we really hope you enjoy using Affinity Photo on Windows as much as those already using it on Mac.
The one thing to bear in mind is that it is the first beta version, so there will be some rough edges and bugs to fix. Of course if you wish to help in the development process we’d really appreciate you reporting any issues you find on our beta forum so we can get them fixed. We should work through any problems pretty quickly with new builds coming out at least every week.
If you want to stay in touch with our progress of this, and everything else we are working on here, then it’s a good idea to follow us on Twitter or Facebook. We’re also more than happy to hear from you through those channels, a well as our forums too.
