Affinity Photo for macOS has received a big update that brings massive performance improvements, eGPU compatibility, HDR/EDR monitor support, and much more.

Faster, smoother and more powerful than ever, Affinity Photo continues to push the boundaries for professional photo editing software. With a huge toolset specifically engineered for creative and photography professionals, whether you are editing and retouching images, or creating full-blown multi-layered compositions, it has all the power and performance you will ever need.

What's New In This Version:
• Massive performance increases with full end-to-end metal acceleration
• eGPU compatible - performance scales with additional GPUs attached
• HDR / EDR monitor support
• At least 2x faster loading of RAW files
• More effective noise reduction, hot pixel removal and wide colour space development.

Yes, Affinity, once a serious competitor to Adobe but without the bloat or exorbitant subscription fees, is now larger than most epic multiplayer games. All to support ‘multiple GPUs’ that few of us will EVER be able to afford!
