Editors’ Notes

There’s no task too big—or too small—for this robust photo editor. If you want to add some cool filters, you can. If you want to adjust the exposure, add some saturation, and make it ’gram-worthy, you can do that too. And if you’d rather draw than edit? You’re in luck. Affinity Photo packs support for Apple Pencil and an incredible array of basic and advanced illustration tools. Create unlimited layers, choose from an unsurprisingly enormous selection of brushes, and even create your own brushes—complete with jitter, spacing, and flow. (Sounds like dancing, right?)

Der kleine Bruder von Photoshop zum Spottpreis. Für Alle die kreativ ihren Fotos den letzten Feinschliff geben wollen und nicht unbedingt auf billige Effekte wert legen. Ein paar Ki-Funktionen wären aber sinnvoll zb für schnelles Freistellen…
