Affinity Photo 1.7 beta

The new 1.7 version of Affinity Photo is now available as a beta test version for existing owners of the app. It installs in parallel with the existing version.

Lots of new features but the best I think is "Alternate futures" for document history. Traditionally, if you roll back the undo history then do something else all your changes after that point are lost. Affinity Photo will now display a small branch icon in the history tab when you do this. Pressing that button will cycle between all the different "futures" after that history entry - meaning you will never lose work you have done. Like software branching!

I follow Affinity on Twitter. I haven't had an email or seen it mentioned anywhere else. I wonder if this is a "soft roll-out"? It took quite a long time to download.

It seems to work a treat! Loads of interesting changes to filters and adjustments.

They have been very busy. There is also a beta of Affinity Designer 1.7, and Affinity Publisher is in beta and will be launched soon. All we need now is the long-promised asset manager (like Lightroom's cataloguing).

I would love to have that even if it cost a bit extra.

Re: Affinity Photo 1.7 beta

I think it’s a mistake that the new Publisher cannot open PagePlus files. I’ve used PP since version 1.0 and it’s a solid DTP programme so I would have liked the ability to merge the two. It seems there are no plans to offer that in the future either.
