Serif updates Affinity photo, design and layout suite with free upgrade

Mac, Windows PC and iPad updates launched simultaneously

Software developer Serif has updated its Affinity creative suite, promising better-than-ever photo editing, graphic design and layout.

Version 2.2 represents the second major free update since Affinity V2 launched last November.

“Once again we’re putting out a free update that continues making additions and improvements to some of Affinity’s most popular tools,” said CEO Ashley Hewson, who simultaneously hinted a “huge update” was also imminent.

“We’re hard at work on some genuinely exciting developments that we think will not only deliver some highly requested features, but also start to map out the future for Affinity and keep us at the forefront.”

In the meantime, the free 2.2 update applies to all three Affinity products, Mac, Windows PC and iPad.

Available to buy now or download free for existing owners, 2.2 introduces new features and improvements including cross references, custom text variables, long press tool shortcuts, no FX and greyscale view modes, OCIO v2 support, and data entry options.

The upgrade is free to existing users and for new customers, after the free 30-day trial, individual Mac or Windows versions are available for a one-off payment of £67.99 each, while the iPad apps are £17.99 each. The Affinity Universal Licence offers all three products on all three platforms for £159.99, with a 25% discount on the Universal Licence for users upgrading from Affinity V1.
