Affinity Designer, a graphic design program that has enjoyed quite a bit of success on Mac, is now officially available for Windows. The full release of the app follows a period of beta testing that initially kicked off in late June. And with the transition out of beta, Affinity Design now matches its Mac counterpart feature-for-feature, Affinity say.
Here's just a glimpse at what designers can expect from Affinity Designer for Windows:
- A complete vector and pixel editing toolset
- 10 million+ percent zoom
- Non-destructive effects and adjustment layers
- RGB, CMYK, LAB, Pantone and ICC colour management
- Advanced typography, including text styles and text-on-a-path
- Effortless PSD, SVG, EPS, PNG and PDF/X handling
- Unlimited artboards with device pre-sets
- Super smooth gradients and colour control
- Standard and retina resolution pixel preview
- Unlimited and saveable undo history
- Incredibly powerful export capabilities
- Symbols, including multiple versions and nested symbols
- Constraints for pseudo-responsive design
- Grids, guides and advanced snapping including pixel alignment
- Fully customisable shortcuts.
If you're interested in checking out Affinity Designer, Affinity is currently offering the Windows version at a 20% discount to celebrate the launch, knocking the app down to $40. Affinity is also throwing in a free Grade UI kit, which contains icons, buttons and other elements needed for UI and web design.
As a reminder, the Windows version of Affinity Photo, the company's photo-editing app, is currently available to beta test for free as well.
