Serif: Big Updates For Affinity Designer & Affinity Photo

Serif Labs just announced that both Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo are now available in version 1.7 – both on the Mac app store and their own shop. That’s the biggest update of their professional graphic design and image editing apps to date. Mac users can now use full Metal acceleration and, for the first time, the separate GPU of the Mac. Working with raster layers and brushes will be up to 10 times faster than before. In addition, the apps now support multiple GPUs, both internal and external ones.
