  1. I so wanted this approach to work but it is not. I presently use LR Mobile and Adobe CC for Photographers. I have Affininty 1.6.3 . Affinity for iPad offered the potential of an all mobile workflow. After investing considerable time in tutorials, I decided to try some serious editing. I am on an iPad Pro 9.7 with 256 GB memory. I imported a Canon raw file from Photos and then began a raw edit. Everything worked fine but when I tried the blemish removal in the raw editor, Affinity crashed and I lost my work. I repeated the raw edits and then developed the image, but when I tried Inpainting the developed image crashed again. I notice in the forum other references to crashes. Crashes which result in lost work are for me a "no go" on working further with software. I commend you for the development of Affinity for iPad but for now I will remain with a less feature rich mobile solution but which is robust with no crashes, plus I do not have to do a work around for my DAM.
  2. I am having the same problem, so I decided I would try Dropbox but I get a Dropbox.com error 413. Suggestions? BTW this is on Save a Copy so I can have a aphoto version.

    Affinity Photo for iPad - 1.6.2

    Just updated the app and successfully imported raw files from Photos. I also was able to do a Panorama and HDR from my iPad files. Nice work! Now I have to actually learn the app to see what I can do with a 100% mobile workflow.
  4. I wanted to expand on my workflow needs as further feedback. Affinity Photo for iPad has caused me to rethink my post-processing workflow and the potential for an entirely mobile workflow is exciting to me. I bought my iPad Pro with 256GB precisely because I intended to use it to process raw photos using the Adobe mobile apps. Unfortunately Apple makes access to raw photos difficult but I sure Serif will resolve the issue. Apple also makes file management on an iOS device extremely difficult. For me my workflow is not complete until my original images are backed up in 2 places. By using Lightroom Mobile, the raw images are synced back to an external drive attached to my desktop and that drive is automatically synced to a cloud service (CrashPlan). If I go to a mobile only post-processing, I am struggling with how I automate the back-up of my raw photos. Dropbox, iCloud, etc. all sync back to the desktop and fill my hardrive. Affinity for iPad has all the post-processing capability I would ever need but file management may keep me from using it.
  5. One more vote for direct RAW import from the Photos library. I congratulate you for developing this full featured editing app and I am enticed to use it. I presently utilize LR mobile and love the ability to go back and forth between my iPad Pro (256GB) and my desktop. I can download raw files to my iPad, import the raw files directly from Photos, do editing in LR Mobile and then continue editing on the desktop because certain edit features are still not available on LR Mobile. Affinity for IPad potentially eliminates having to go to the desktop. But the inability to bring in raw photos directly from iPad Photos is a big disappointment for me.
