Just launched: Affinity Photo Macros for Photographers

With Affinity Photo 1.5 came the support for macros, which is the same as actions are in Photoshop.

To ease the transition, and the workflow for those who also want to reap the benefits of using Affinity Photo, I have created this Affinity Photo Macro Pack which can help you to create the looks and effects that you love, but with less work.

It includes both workflow macros, like a details extractor brush, and dodge & burn layers, as well as a growing number of Look/Style macros that will give you i.e. a Vintage look with a single click. You can use these looks as a starting point for giving your photos a unique look.

I will continuously add more and more macros to the Affinity Photo macro pack with free updates to those who have already bought the package. The introductory price is $15 for a limited period (until March 31th, 2017).

Affinity Photo is becoming my go to application for serious and complex photo editing. It basically can the same as Photoshop, and in many cases, it is more user-friendly. It is certainly much cheaper.

When you first begin to work with Affinity Photo you might be confused with their different “Personas”, but if you think of them as workspaces it will be much easier to grasp. The develop persona/workspace confused me a bit at the beginning, until I recognized that this was just like Adobe Camera Raw, where you initially tells the software how to interpret a Raw file. However, with these few mental notes, you will likely find that Affinity Photo is easier to work with than Photoshop. Anyway, I encourage you to take a look at Affinity Photo, it might end up saving you a lot of money compared to Photoshop.

  1. I’m an photo enthusiast, and i have used serif’s photoplus in the past.
    Within the last month i purchased Affinity Photo and Dam Photo’s Affinity Macro pack. The macro’s saved me many hours trying to make my autumn photo vibrant and exciting.
    I could not have done it with these macros. It is well worth the cost. My favorite are the fall foliage and mongolian macros.
    They made my New England photo’s look great even when the fall colors were not at there best this year.

    • Hi Ray,

      Thanks for your comment. It means a lot for me to get feedback like this. I am currently touring New Zealand for a couple of months. But when I get back I have plans to make even more macros for the Affinity Macro Pack. Furthermore, I have plans to create a video course with a complete Affinity Photo workflow for processing landscape and nature photos like a professional. Anyway more of that to come when I get back home in a couple of months.


  2. I just purchased the Affinity Macro Pack and was looking forward to using it. However, when I extract the .zip file, I keep getting an error message: Error 0x80070057 The parameter is incorrect. How can I fix this?
