Affinity Photo makes the jump from Mac to PC with Windows beta launch

Affinity Photo, a photo editing app that has seen quite a bit of praise from Mac users, is now available in beta for Windows. The initial beta version of this solid alternative to Photoshop is available to test completely free, allowing any photographer or artist to test it out ahead of release.

According to Affinity, Affinity Photo for Windows is a complete feature-for-feature match with its Mac sibling. That means you should have access to granular editing tools and compatibility with a wide range of file types. On top of that, Affinity says the Windows beta includes some big upcoming features that aren't in the release version of the app yet, including:

  • HDR merge
  • Focus stacking
  • Macros
  • Tone mapping
  • Batch processing
  • 360 degree image editing

If you're a photographer, editor or artist using Windows, then Affinity Photo is definitely worth trying — especially since the beta is currently free to test. If interested, you can sign up to test the app on Affinity's website now.
