Editors' Review for Affinity Designer
Combining pixel editing with vector design options, Affinity Designer brings versatility into the spotlight, allowing both photo retouching and graphic material creation. There are an assortment of raster tools, adjustment options and graphic effects that you can open an image for retouching or create a new project from scratch.
Affinity Designer supports multiple layers and bundles a generous collection of raster tools you can work with to create realistic artwork. Pencils and brushes, fill and transparency control tools, shapes, and vector cropping tools are all one-click away in the toolbox. Also, you can tamper with exposure and white balance, shadows and highlights, brightness and contrast, colors, vibrance, and more.
But you should be aware that the touch experience is frustrating and there are no on-screen controls for some functions.
