This latest update to Affinity brings new features and improvements to Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo, and Affinity Publisher across Mac, Windows PC, and iPad platforms.
The v2.3 update introduces several enhancements that cater to the diverse needs of graphic designers, photographers, and publishers. Key updates include the introduction of a Spiral Tool in all apps, enabling the easy creation of various spiral forms such as linear, decaying, and Fibonacci spirals. Another significant addition is a new pixel grid, which complements the main grid and appears when zoomed in, aiding in precision editing.
For Affinity Publisher, PDF functionality has been bolstered with up to 256-bit password protection and a new tags panel for adding alternative text to images and objects. This feature enhances the accessibility of documents created with the software.
Other general improvements across the suite include background color control for asset libraries, expanded options in move data entry, and refined find and replace functions. The update also includes optimizations for macOS Sonoma and iOS 17, ensuring smoother performance on the latest operating systems.
Affinity Photo, Designer, and Publisher are available for individual purchase on different platforms, or as a bundle under the Affinity Universal Licence, with no ongoing subscription required. This approach offers flexibility and value to users who prefer a one-time purchase over a subscription model.
Version 2.3 is available as a free download for existing users of the Affinity suite, reaffirming Serif’s commitment to continuous improvement and customer satisfaction. For more details on the update and the Affinity software suite, interested users can visit Affinity’s official website.
