The first Affinity Photo update since its acquisition by Canva back in March introduces several new features and fixes to improve your workflow, from variable font support and a new QR Code Tool, to optimizations for Windows users.

Now, the entire Affinity suite is optimized for the latest Windows hardware thanks to full native support for devices with ARM64 chips, such as Snapdragon X series in Microsoft's Copilot+ upcoming laptops.

You can now easily add QR codes to your files using the new QR Code Tool. Scan the code to visit sites and social media, send messages, emails, make a call, connect to Wi-Fi, and more, just select one of the common data types when setting the code.

Affinity Photo 2.5 brings several typography workflow upgrades, such as turning old Typography dialog into a panel. You're now able to use variable fonts in all Affinity apps, which opens up a new world of typographic design possibilities.

In addition to predefined font styles, such as light, bold, and condensed, variable fonts provide better control of specific design aspects known as axes of variation. Many variable fonts allow you to adjust their width and weight axes, and possibly italic, optical size, and slant:

Other updates include a new Stroke Width Tool, which gives you an on-document way of editing the pressure profile of any curve, and further improvements to the Pencil Tool, including a new curve-smoothing algorithm providing overall smoother results.
