Ever since Affinity Photo was announced we were wondering how it will match up to Photoshop. Dracorubio took it for a round and was ok with it, though not overly impressed. Now photographer Felix Barjou gave it a spin for a full retouch session.

The retouch is sped up to about two and half minutes and for me it was not trivial to see any major differences in the workflow vs. the predominant Photoshop alternative. Can you?

Felix tells us that “This software is pretty cool. The corrector tool is more powerful than Photoshop, but some small things are missing, like invert a layer mask, keyboard shortcuts for wacom users and such, but it is still a beta version

As a PSA, Affinity Photo is still available as a free Beta, though we aren’t sure what ill happen to all the beta users once the software is completed.

      Timelapse is a sequence of photographs turned into movie. And i mean REAL photos not definition “every movie made is from still pictures”

    Sharp lenses for ludicrously soft results. Seems legit.
