Not long ago we wrote a post about the upcoming Affinity Designer 1.5, this month we will be looking at the anticipated Affinity Photo 1.5 that is due towards the end of September 2016. We can expect some really exciting new features such as dedicated HDR support and a HDR persona which will really add some power when editing HDR image stacks or even single jpg images as in the demonstration above.

Also is the introduction of 360 degrees images and the seamless editing of them.

Affinity Photo 1.5 is expected to include the following:

  • Advanced HDR merge producing full 32-bit linear colour space images
  • An entirely new workspace for tone mapping
  • Focus stacking to bring depth to multiple combined images
  • Batch processing for smoother, faster workflow
  • Macros to record and replay a set of commands
  • An all-new way to edit 360 degree images
