Status: Customer Beta Purpose: Improvements, Fixes Requirements: Purchased Affinity Photo Mac App Store: Not Submitted Download DMG: Download Auto-update: Available   Hello, We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the second beta of Affinity Photo 1.7.1 for macOS. If this is your first time using a customer beta of an Affinity app, it’s worth noting that the beta will install as a separate app - alongside your store version. They will not interfere with each other at all and you can continue to use the store version for critical work without worry. This beta is an incremental update to the 1.7 version recently released to all customers. We recommend that you use this beta in preference to the store version if you are affected by any of the issues listed below.
