  1. In Photo 1.5 I was able to hold ALT and click on a pixel or mask layer to "solo view" it on the canvas. I would press ESC to reset the visibility and reveal all layers again. This no longer works in Photo 1.6.6. I'm still able to solo view a mask or pixel layer, but ESC no longer resets the visibility. Please fix this as this was a key part of my retouching workflow.
  2. Like the title says. I’m unable to apply a spare channel to the alpha of an adjustment layer. The function is present, like on the desktop version, but it seems that the spare channels on the iPad version are all locked to target the background layer. When I select a different active layer in the layer’s studio, it doesn’t become the new target for the spare channels. As a workaround, I have to load the spare channel to the active selection, BEFORE loading an adjustment layer. Making the active selection the mask as the adjustment is being applied. That’s cool, but it makes it hard to A/B different spare channels as the alpha of an adjustment. Here’s what I’m trying to do on the iPad version:
  3. After updating Photo to 1.6.6 I noticed that the healing brush is not as responsive as it used to be. It's performance is slow and it seems likes it's going to hang but never does. Also, the cross-hairs for the source point doesn't animate as smoothly like it used to, some frames are dropped as it moves around.
  4. Please add this feature in a future update, even if it's defaulted off, allow us to toggle it on in the preferences.

  6. Do you mean in the develop persona? Despite your preamble I’m going to throw out a suggestion for the photo persona. 1. Add a fill layer 2. Create an elliptical gradient 3. Set middle node to white 4. Set outer node to middle grey 5. Set blend mode to multiply Now you have an infinitely adjustable vignette layer.
  7. Just wanted to support this request. Having the brush footprint visible helps me when retouching portraits. It's very common to apply brush sizes that cover naturally occurring contours of the body and face. Currently, it takes a lot of trial and error. Having this feature would speed up my process. I would suggest adding it as an option that can be toggled on/off in case some people find it obtrusive.
  8. Thanks for the input MBd and Akira, @MBd, I saw that bare feats report too, it looks like there is a small advantage in the 10.5, but not by much. as Akira said, the 12.9 does have better support for productivity (multitasking areas areas are larger). I'm leaning towards the 12.9 now. Cheers!
  9. Hopefully someone from Affinity can answer this one: It seems that the Geekbench scores are confirming that the hardware internals of the new iPads are identical, except for the battery and screen resolutions (the 12.9 having larger batteries due to the larger display). Knowing this, will the 10.5 iPad handle more live filters and adjustment layers to be applied on a project, because of its lower screen resolution? If so, does that make the 10.5 the better choice if the main concern is squeezing performance from these tablets? I'm looking for an objective, evidence based answer: Can the 10.5" handle more adjustment layers and overall processing than the 12.9 due to the lower resolution? Thanks!
