  1. Many thanks. I just discovered that on the iPad and came back to confirm.
  2. Unless I am missing a setting, layer groups are all represented by a folder icon instead of the small thumbnail that v1 had. Is this intentional, or have I hopefully missed a setting to restore the thumbnail view for layer groups? It makes quickly identifying the group you are looking for much quicker.
  3. Yes, I did this previously although an iOS update broke the shortcut. Would have to review it to see what needs change to get it working again. It only allowed you to share a photo from the photo library to Affinity Photo, it wouldn't let you save back over the top of the original image.
  4. I use the free Paint app but it adds additional steps and time to the process as well as additional conversion points. I love Affinity Photo but surprised at the lack of some export options that plenty free tools support.
  5. Adding my voice to this. Was using the beta for some non critical work and really found this a chore. Hopefully fixed soon or presumably for the full release.
  6. I'm another looking for DDS support. The new MS Flight Simulator 2020 requires DDS textures so I need to stick to Photoshop to export my work for this sim.
  7. Any word from Affinity team on this? It seems like an important feature than needs to be added.
  8. Another vote for BMP export support. I’m working on textures for a game franchise where the SDK requires 24bit BMP files. I can do all the necessary editing of the PSD templates In Affinity Photo but need to export as PSD and switch to desktop to use an app like Photoshop or GIMP to be able to prepare the BMP files.
  9. Try editing the shortcut and changing the target application to another photo editor you have installed and see if that works. If so, then try changing back to Affinity Photo and test again. Did you ever have the beta of Affinity Photo installed?
  10. Yes, from the export page, select share at the bottom left and you have options to save to files and save image which saves to photos.
  11. No, because Affinity imports the image. You need to export the result back to Photos as a new image. You can of course then delete the original image.
  12. Apologies, you need to have it set up in the shortcuts app first. You can then use this method to add support for any editing app - see screens attached. It’s important to select the Accepts image option in the shortcut setup so the shortcut only shows up when viewing images. Literally takes less than a min to set up the shortcut but I’ve added a link to the shortcut here: https://www.icloud.com/shortcuts/84bf6ea23f4e49eebe63385e13322935
  13. If you are using iPadOS then you have this simple solution: Find your image(s) in Apple Photos. Tap share sheet. Scroll to the bottom of the list of available actions and you will find ‘Open in Affinity Photo’. This will launch AP and import your selected image, ready for editing. @Teddylours This should provide exactly what you are looking for - use Photos to browse your images and Affinity to edit.
  14. Any tips on the batch processing feature? This is something I have yet to try in the beta.
  15. I’ll write up a quick tutorial later but I’ve shared the shortcut here for you. Just tap this and it’ll open up in shortcuts for you. You can edit it yourself to see what it does but it is quite basic. Now though when viewing an image in Photos, you can just tap the share icon (open in) and select shortcuts which will open up a small pane where you can select the shortcut which will open the image in Affinity Photo. https://www.icloud.com/shortcuts/0e1b5d19016c474f83d8679588027d01
  16. You can do that today with Apple's free Shortcuts app. Download that if you haven't already, select the Open In shortcut, uncheck the option to prompt for an app and you can then select which app you wish to open in. You can select Affinity Photo and also set the properties of the shortcut to be available from the share sheet and only for image files. Now, say you are in Photos looking at an image and you wish to edit in AP, you just hit the Share sheet, tap the shortcuts icon and select your shortcut. It is simple to set up and use and is only a single tap longer than native share sheet support. I can provide a better tutorial if you are new to shortcuts.
  17. I would like to see the option of switching betweybthe last two used tools. I was hoping this is how it work by default because I may be erasing some content then wish to quickly use the undo brush to brush back in some of what I have deleted then continue erasing and switching back and forth between both tools as I refine what I am doing. Using the last two tools used also allows us to switch this in the fly by selecting two different tools from the side tray then using the double tap to switch between then as necessary.
  18. Full size at this time unfortunately but it may be worth requesting this from Apple as a feature request for their RAW support - https://www.apple.com/feedback/ipad.html
  19. Would love to see this as well - either as a full editor or a subset of the tools such as Inpainting etc. much like the Mac version has.
  20. Hi, it seems this is still an issue with RAW files. I realise it probably isn’t a priority issue but will it still be addressed at some point?
  21. I personally would stick with the lower capacity models for this generation if you don't need the extra capacity and the next generation will likely have a minimum of 6GB across the full range of Pros. As for the whole laptop replacement argument, I think of it more as a laptop alternative. Apps like Affinity Photo mean I no longer need a MacBook Pro - which I sold - but I do have my desktop Mac in my office when I need something more traditional.
  22. This can be hidden for full screen apps - it is up to the developer so it appears this should be possible for Affinity Photo.
  23. Are there any plans for Batch Processing or similar file management for the iPad? I just think if we want to work on a number of images and then move them on, we need some kind of batch processing e.g. to select a few images and export them with a preset such as file dimensions, watermark etc.
  24. Are there any plans for Photos Extension on iPad? Would make a huge difference to how we can work with images.
