Run the Windows app and it will automatically find the update and prompt to install. OR if you want to squirrel away a copy, log into your account and press download on your order history. There is no incremental patch, only the full download as always.

For Affinity apps on the Mac, use the Mac store Updates option.

Got it already and thanks for all the hard work. And thanks for NOT doing a secret web install.

[RANT}I just installed a patch for Corel PSP and they have it so it installs and you cannot save it.. Easily  fixed by having the appdata/.temp folder open and copying it out before pressing the install button. After the install it trashes the temp folder Silly and pointless. Easier to just get the file and have it to install whenever

[\RANT]

Again thanks!

You have a video out about an Epic skies bonus pack. I did not see that anywhere. Is there a link?

Thanks again

For me, the program Affinity Photo can not be used under MacOS. I have no way to open the menu settings, otherwise a lot seems to be messed up.
See screenshot.

First thank you for the update. When installing the update of AP on Windows does it install in the same folder as 1.5%, thank you

Many thanks for the update, and the free content. Very happy with this.

Just to report, an error message when trying to unzip the 'frankentoon-texturizerpro-brushes' file. I can drag everything to where I want it, apart from the 'QuickStart_Guide.pdf'. I'm getting the error:
1 Headers Error : QuickStart_Guide.pdf

Even when I try to just drag the file to my desktop.

Hi Sherbakov,

Run Affinity Photo. You should receive a notification telling you that there's an update available along with a download button. Click download to be directed to a webpage from where you can download the installer.

That is a problem: i click download and just nothing happens. May be i need to wait. I am eager to install.
