What you need to know

  • Affinity Photo, Designer, and Publisher each have another 90-day free trial.
  • You can use the free trial even if you took advantage of the Affinity suite's free trial last year.
  • All three apps are 50 percent off on Windows 10, macOS, and iPadOS.

You can get a 90-day free trial of Affinity Photo, Affinity Designer, and Affinity Publisher from Serif right now. Serif, the makers of the popular creative apps, is offering the trial to help people during the current global pandemic. The company had an identical free trial offer last year as well. Even if you took advantage of last year's free trial, you can still use this new one.

If you prefer to own the apps for good, you can purchase all of the Affinity apps for 50 percent off, including versions on Windows, macOS, and iPadOS.

"For almost a year now, the COVID-19 pandemic has continued to severely impact people all over the world, not least in the creative community," says Serif's website. "Last year, to support that community, we made all our apps free for anyone to use for 90 days. We were humbled and overwhelmed by the response."

The company goes on to say, "Sadly, it's clear that the pandemic continues to have a serious impact and so once again we are offering a 90-day free trial."

in our Affinity Publisher review and Affinity Photo review we break down how the apps are powerful creative tools that don't require a subscription.
