AFFINITY PHOTO HAS already captured the attention of enthusiast and professional photographers around the world with its desktop image editing application for Macintosh and Windows. Now its success has been followed up with a powerful and intuitive ipad application too.
When it comes to tablet- based editing software, we’re accustomed to receiving watered- down and compromised versions of the desktop stablemates, often making them adequate for performing simple edits, but less useful for detailed editing or perfecting high- quality images. This is definitely not the case when it comes to Affinity Photo for ipad.
Open up the software and both existing Affinity Photo users and those new to the platform will feel immediately at home in the slick and spacious interface. For those new to Affinity, the best place to start is in the included interactive introduction and tutorial videos. These are embedded into the app, and cover everything from brushes to selections, layers and adjustments, so there’s no need to nip off to Youtube to swat up before getting hands on! If you prefer to dive right in, the interface is intuitive and well laid out. Affinity Photo manages to pack in a lot of features without feeling cluttered or overwhelming, thanks in part to the use of different ‘ personas’. Personas are Affinity’s individual workspaces for different editing disciplines, for example: the Photo persona offers tools that are specific to photo editing, while the Selections persona allows to you make quick and accurate selections, while the Liquify persona makes bending and distorting your images simple. Plus, if you need a little help, there are tool tips that can be switched on and off in a single tap.
Affinity Photo has been designed specifically for the ipad and, as a result, performing edits and adjustments using the touch interface has never felt so right. You can do this using your fingers, the Apple Pencil or both for a spot of speedy ambidextrous editing with Multi- Touch gestures! In fact, whether you’re dodging and burning to make selective contrast adjustments, or revealing or hiding layer masks when making composite images, using touch to do so is infinitely more intuitive than using a mouse or trackpad has ever been. The interface now supports a new portrait orientation too, so working on portrait- format images is even easier, plus you can rotate your ipad freely to approach the image from different angles. There’s no reason that Affinity Photo for ipad wouldn’t be your main image editing software, rather than the software you use when you’re not near your computer.

Power, speed & performance All of the editing tools and features that Affinity Photo for ipad packs in are backed up by some impressive processing power, allowing for functions that were previously only possible in desktop software. In fact, pretty much anything that you can do in Affinity Photo for desktop, you can also do on your tablet. Want to edit Raw files on your ipad? Affinity for ipad can do that. Nondestructive 32- bit editing? No problem. Support for all of the main colour spaces, PSD, PNG, JPG, TIFF, EPS, PDF, and SVG file types, HDR merging, focus stacking, panorama stitching, 360° photo editing – you name it, Affinity for ipad can handle it. Cross- platform & cloud support Two of the most convenient features of Affinity Photo are its cross- platform support and cloud integration. The cloud functionality not only makes accessing and importing your images from icloud, Dropbox or Google Drive easy, but the cross- platform editing means that if you want to start processing your images on your ipad and finish them on your Mac or Windows computer later on, or vice versa, Affinity allows you to do so – you save the file on one platform, and open it on the other with everything intact, right down to your Undo history! This makes Affinity Photo for ipad invaluable for those who edit on the move. www. affinity. serif. com
