The beta period allows users to try the new photo editing software free of charge and offer feedback, allowing Affinity Photo’s developers the opportunity to fine-tune the product before its full launch.
Once the beta period ends, the Affinity Photo for Windows price tag will match its subscription-free sibling for Mac, with a one-off payment of $49.99 / £39.99 / €49.99. This price also includes all future updates to the software.
