If you're looking to pick up (or gift) some professional imaging tools for your PC, Serif's Affinity apps are currently on sale for the holidays. Right now, you can pick up Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer for $39.99 at the Microsoft Store. That's $10 the full price of both tools.
Both apps offer a number of features needed for image work, rivaling Adobe's popular suite of tools. Affinity Photo includes a full slate of retouching and editing tools that photography professionals would expect from any serious software. Similarly, Affinity Design is an attractive option for designers looking to create vector graphics for marketing materials, icons, and UI designs.
Both Affinity tools were slightly cheaper with their initial launch sale, coming in at $37.99, but this is a solid time to pick them up if you missed out at launch. Both sales are set to run through January 5. And if the Microsoft Store releases aren't up your alley, Serif is offering the same discount at its website for the desktop versions of each app.
