The Mac App Store is offering Affinity Photo for only $39.99 to celebrate the app’s first birthday. That’s $10 off the regular price and a match to our previous mention for the lowest we’ve seen.

“The application feels modern, sleek, and responsive. Since it was built from the ground up in the last 5 years, rather than evolving over the past 28 years, like Photoshop, this makes some sense.”

Rated 4+ stars from hundreds on the Mac App Store and it’s also the Apple Mac App of The Year of 2015.
