Affinity Photo is an alternative to Adobe Photoshop that professional photographers and other digital artists utilize to modify photographs and create images. Just as Photoshop saves users' in-progress images as .PSD files, Affinity Photo saves in-progress images in AFPHOTO files.

To create an AFPHOTO with the Windows and Mac versions of Affinity Photo, select File → New..., modify the image, then select File → Save or Save As. After saving your progress as an AFPHOTO file, you can close it and re-open it for further editing.
