The developers of Serif have rolled out version 1.9 for the Affinity programs (Photo, Designer and Publisher). The update is available to all users free of charge. After updating Affinity Photo, I also saw that free additional content was available for download. How you do the update to Affinity 1.9, what advantages it offers, what content you can expect and what else you should know about the apps, I have put together for you in the following.
Current promotion: Affinity apps 90 days free + 50% discount
Since I'm currently only using Affinity Photo, I can't say that much about the other two apps. The update to the current version should run the same for all three programs on the Apple Mac. It only makes a difference whether you got it from the Mac App Store or from the developer's website. Here are the individual approaches:
The following points are listed as new features and improvements in version 1.9 of Affinity Photo:
As already mentioned above, I am currently not using these apps and therefore cannot really report much. But of course you can also view the improvements and new features in Affinity Designer 1.9 and Affinity Publisher 1.9 in the Mac App Store or on the corresponding Serif website:
After the update on my MacBook Pro, I was offered the option of downloading additional content for free and with a comprehensive (commercial) license. This option is available to all users who have an Affinity ID - i.e. an account with the software provider.
If you don't have one yet, you can create it for free. And the additional content can already be downloaded. For Affinity Photo under macOS, these are overlays for fog (20 pieces), rain (20 pieces), rainbows (35 pieces) and snow (60 pieces). What you get for the other apps and what bonuses there are on the iPad will be shown on the last linked info page for Affinity 1.9.
