Some Mac user simply delete Affinity Photo the app itself but ignore the issue of app remnants. Typically, those leftovers don’t take too much disk space, but if you wish to perform a thorough uninstall and keep your Mac clean, you are suggested to hunt down the useless files and folder.

  • Click the X icon on the upper left corner, and click (Force) Quit in pop-up dialog.

After that, you can go ahead to delete Affinity Photo in the /Applications folder.

Stage 2. Uninstall Affinity Photo

Uninstalling Affinity Photo the app itself is quite simple as you only need to delete it from the Applications folder in Finder. Here are the detailed instructions:

  • Open up Finder, and head to the /Applications folder from the sidebar.
  • Locate and select Affinity Photo, drag its icon to the Trash in Dock, and drop it there (or right click on Affinity Photo and choose Move to Trash option).
  • Head to the Finder in the Menu Bar, and choose Empty Trash option.

Emptying the Trash will permanently remove all the items thrown inside. Before that, make sure that everything in Trash is no longer needed. To avoid any risk in this step, you can delete the app individually in Trash like that: open up Trash, right click on Affinity Photo, choose Delete Permanently, and click Delete in the pop-up dialog.

Stage 3. Delete leftovers

As we mentioned before, Affinity Photo creates and stores some of its components outside the package file. Those items will not disappear automatically alongside with the deletion of Affinity Photo, and that means you will need to manually delete them.

To hunt down and wipe off those app leftovers, follow the steps shown below:

  • Open the Finder, head to the Go menu in Menu Bar, and choose Go to Folder.

go to library -

  • Type ~/Library in the box that appears, and hit Enter key to open up the folder.

Library (1)

  • Search for the items whose names contain Affinity Photo in the locations:
    ~/Library/Caches/, ~/Library/Preferences/, ~/Library/PreferencePanes/, ~/Library/ApplicationSupport/, ~/Library/LaunchAgents/, ~/Library/LaunchDaemons/, ~/Library/StartupItems/

Warning: Mistakenly deleting unrelated items could affect other apps or even the system, so don’t rush to delete any file when you are not sure whether it belongs to Affinity Photo. To locate Affinity Photo leftovers precisely, use the Search in Finder:

  • In ~/Library, type Affinity Photo or Seriflab (the vendor’s name) in the search bar.
  • Click “Library” under the bar to show the search result in the specific folder.
  • Select the matched items in the search result, and delete them to the Trash.

  • After that, repeat the steps to delete any Affinity Photo leftover in Library folder.
  • Finally, delete all those items in the Trash to permanently get rid of them.

If you are a Mac beginner, we suggest you to temporarily move the suspicious files to the Desktop for a few days and see if your Mac works normally like before. If nothing wrong happens afterwards, you can consider to delete those items from your Mac.
