    The iPad is a fast but resource limited device, I personally would advise against loading in assets, fonts or any other add on features until you need them and remove afterward. Assets especially are very ver

    This has been logged with our developers to investigated further 

    y large and once loaded into the App iPadOS cannot optimise that space and your iPad will fill faster than expected. As you have found, learning to keep those assets organised in an optimised location like Cloud folder so that they are always available when you need them will keep your apps fast and responsive and also free up space on your device.

    Thanks guys!

  2. Affinity Photo froze up on me, while I was in the middle of adding a selected asset, into one of my of asset categories.

    I manually closed out Affinity Photo - upon return - my asset studio no longer had my 70 categories.
    (I’ve encountered this freeze issue many times before, where I would manually close out the app - but it never deleted ALL of my Assets 😢)


    I always back up my assets into iCloud, so their safe.
    What sucks balls - is that I have to manually import them one at a time. 70 damned times.

    Which is strange for these futuristic devices. Doing things one at a time, instead of mass batch importing. How we in the future - but backwards at the same time?


    During this little adventure, I also came into the realization... it took Affinity Photo upwards 4-5 minutes to import one of my 182mb Asset Categories.
    (I have many categories beyond this small size - Will they take 20 minutes each? Scary thought!)

    At first, I thought Affinity Photo was refusing to import my category because of it’s 182mb file size. 
    I was on the verge of bringing it up in this thread, then as I’m typing in this thread, I went back into Affinity Photo to reference something.. this was about 4-5 minutes after I tried importing the 182mb file, upon going back into Affinity Photo, there it was (the 182mb assets) chilling in my Asset Studio, all smug, like it was there all along.

    I am posting this experience, to ask...  are there any bugs with Asset Studio as of the recent release iOS 14.3 update?  
    Anybody else experiencing this?

    Hi @Affinity iPad Student,

    Apologies for the delayed response!

    From what I can see from your screen recording, it appears as though a Freehand selection is made, then Option-Delete is used, which removes the areas selected and then fills it with your foreground colour.

    Does this help? :)

    Thank you @Dan C I think this will help.

    When I get the chance, I’ll go back to that segment of the course and follow your steps and report on here.


  4. Few things..


    1.  Fonts are real small 🤓 
    2.  Rotate my canvas not available?
    3. We ever getting split view? (Multi-task view)?
    4.  Selections engine - don’t why I expected detect model like Photoshop on iPad
    5.  I know @Andy Somerfield mentioned full compliment of features, slowly releasing onto iPad beta, they’re taking time with the one. I’m just curious if the inputting of curves coordinates (X,Y,Min,Max) and the curves picker will be here sooner, rather than later? 🤗(See image)


  5. These sliders in PS 2021 called “neural filters” are insane! 

    •  Face detection
    •  Aging, smoothing human skin
    •  Adding / removing volumetric hair
    •  Changing eye gaze angle
    •  Turning angle of face
    • add a smile or a frown onto the photo model you are editing -waaaAt!
    • Automatic sky replacement - Sick!
    •  Much more..

     It’s almost coming across as if customizing a character inside a RPG game, stuff like this indicates to me... we are definitely moving into software you would see in a Sci Fi movie.


    The era of Cloud computing and AI machine learning algorithms are getting closer. Features like these ever reach Affinity Photo on iPad game over!! I will pay serif for an update like this. 


  6. I’m just saying Serif....

    I was watching Oculus Quest 2 (revealed today) for Business commercial.

    I think Gravity Sketch is dope (see video).. but uhh.. would love the next commercial to be Affinity Photo for VR reveal so I can create in my Oculus Quest 2 headset.


    Facebook is really committed to get 1 billion people into VR. They are hungry right now and helping established developers with in gettingtheir software on their Oculus Quest 2 platform, to the point where they will be willing to help you develop your software and/or potentially split some of the Development costs. I don’t care about Facebook, but I LOVE VR!


    Mods my mistake if this the wrong area to post this.



  7. Face_Your_Fears.psdI am following the following tutorial: (time stamped begins at exact location of my issue)


    As tutorial instructs...

    I have attached an hsl adjustment to the waterfall layer (background) 


    However, when I try to change the waterfall layer to blue (as tutorial shows) hsl seems to not be working - nothing is happening. (shown in the 2nd video clip below)

    I then tried it on the boy layer.. also not changing to blue, instead blue pixel blocks appear on the boy image (shown in the 1st video clip below)

    I closed out Affinity Photo, relaunched it, still having same hsl issue. 

    What am I doing wrong?

    (I have attached video clips to show what I am experiencing, I have also attached the PSD files)

    Yes that i know, thats from the layer panel.but my layers are randomly 1 at the top and one in the middle, try finding them.

    No before the update i can select layers by clicking on the layer holding 1 finger down and select next layer or anker paint. It still works but more often not then yes. So something changed in the update

    Ah... gotcha! 

    I watched your video again. At first I thought...  


    maybe because your thumb resting on the screen, was denying affinity of registering your other inputs. 


    but just before that..

    you seemed to be able to select other layers just fine while your thumb was resting on your screen.


    I never encountered this one. I’m definitely stumped here. 

    You probably already checked or did what I’m about to say:

    • layer didn’t accidentally lock somehow? (even though I saw you didn’t lock it)


    • Rebooted your iPad?


    • This part sucks... Save your work to the cloud, delete app and reinstall?


  9. Found this on YouTube. 

    If this has been posted, my apologies. Just wanted to give back to the community that has given me plenty.

     The following guide, most definitely speeds up workflow. 

    I can confirm what the video below depicts - works on Affinity Photo iPad.
    Some small alterations are required. Following below steps are performed after tracing removal areas (See video for Kathryn tracing fence...)

    1) Go to SELECTION PERSONA, tap the 3 dots. 
    2) Choose selection from layer.  (Bottom of drop down)
    3) Go back to PHOTO PERSONA
    4) Select “BOTH” layers. (The painted pixel layer & the image layer)
    5) Go to in-painting brush
    7) Manually paint over
    😎 Done!


  10. @RealSkyDiver you most certainly can! @Alfred expressed facts. His advice is always 💯 


    I have successfully followed Photoshop tutorials as well. (I’m still a newbie myself - just started getting serious with AP this year)  


    Once you know where most things are located in Affinity, it’s pretty much like a game controller.
    Different games, setup their controls differently - but since you know the controller... you’re able to play all sorts of games.  
    Same thing with Affinity Photo on iPad. 

    Here are some tutorials I was able to follow along successfully! As you can see.. a lot!
