Does Affinity work with 32-bit OSX Yosemite?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,


I'm new to mac and I've been looking around for some good photo editing software to use for creating concept art.


Affinity looks excellent for its price and I worked with Serif software before switching to mac so I know I'll be using good software. So I'd love the purchase it.


But, my mac only has a 32-bit version of Yosemite OSX. I was wondering if the software would still work for what I wanted it for which is mainly painting using a pressure sensitive Wacom tablet.


Any advice on this would be great

Yes AP is purely a 64-bit App.
But I am very curious about your Mac, what is it?
After Lion came out Apple dropped OS support for 32-bit processors and Yosemite requires a 64-bit processor, or so I thought.

If it's mostly painting you want to do I personally favoure ArtRage4 and it will run in 32-bit mode. You can try a demo version of it too.

Yosemite requires 64-bit processors. I know you can sometimes get OS X running on unofficially supported hardware, but I'd be really surprised if you could get it running on a 32-bit system.
