  1. Thank you Dan! I truly appreciate it.😊
  2. Which makes both Appple and Affinity useless to me. Thank you for your feedback to my question.
  3. Just bought and downloaded Affinity on my new iPad Air 4GEN. Loaded in my Fuji XT-4 RAF files in iCloud. Tried to open in Affinity - says file not supported? Really?
  4. Excellent DM1! Thank you so much, my questions have been answered. Can’t wait to get started!
  5. @LionelD Thanks Lionel! My favorite shooter is Fujifilm XT-2 and I ain’t going nowhere without it. It seems when I read all these cool replies that there’s really not much of a difference in the workflow using iPad or Mac (I store everything in iCloud anyways). The BIG question for me is really the printing process. On my current, older iPad I import from iCloud, open the file in my Epson printer app, and print. Here’s the problem: the Epson app does not allow me to manually configure sizes - it’s all presets! So....will I be able to print directly from the Affinity app, with the possibility to manually set my print sizes - or do I still have to go via the Epson app?
  6. Exactly. Which will probably happen later than sooner. iPad is an excellent tool, but for serious work we might have to lean on a Mac for the foreseeable future.
  7. RAW files on an iPad are typically not stored locally. The file you see in the Photo app is a copy of the original RAW file located in iCloud. You can find the original RAW files in the “Files” app on your iPad and extract them from there, to manipulate in any compatible app - like Affinity Photo, Lightroom etc. Just like if you had your RAW files stored on OneDrive, Google Drive, and external drive, etc.
  8. Thanks DM1, If you can print directly from the Affinity Photo app on a iPad, without having to go through the Epson app, that would certainly solve the issue!
  9. Thank you so much! Exactly what I was looking for. I really appreciate it. Yup, if I choose the iPad I’ll buy the 2020 version (should be released here within the next 90 days). One of the idiotic problems is, that when printing from my iPad to my Epson P-800 I can’t manually put in dimensions for the print, cus it’s not available as an option for the Epson print app. That’s got nothing to do with Affinity of course, but that might be a defining issue for me, when choosing hardware. Thanks again!
  10. I load my RAWs into the iPad using the Apple card reader (or wirelessly from my Fujifilm XT-2). I can then upload directly to iCloud, or directly into Lightroom, if I need to. You can easily download photos or whatever into your iPad from any cloud, be it iCloud, OneDrive, Google Drive or Dropbox. I assume you can open RAW in Affinity Photo, from any cloud.
  11. Thx DM1! I’ll check it out. I’m curious which features the desktop version offers, that the iPad version doesn’t though..
  12. Input please: As a photographer I’ve been using Lightroom on my (now outdated) iPad for years, and used my wife’s Macbook Pro when I needed features, not available on my iPad (photoshop). I don’t really like Lightroom, I’m intrigued by Affinity Photo, and I need new hardware - so here’s my dilemma: Is there any difference in performance/possibilities/features/flexibility using Affinity Photo on an iPad Pro, or an iMac? Because that might decide my hardware choice (I really like my iPad cuz I travel a LOT, but the output and flexibility is far more important). I hope this makes sense! Thanks in advance for any help!
