  1. Documents is really a helpful tool, and miles ahead of Apples own Files App. What I also can recommend after stumbling on it is Filebrowser, its not free but worth every cent. It has some more advanced features and I would use it only but it cant open RAR Files. (Documents can do that). Filebrowser can even stream to my Chrome-cast, wich is kind of a problem on iOS. If you want jpg and h.264 files go to Settings->Camera->Formats and choose "Most compatible". That will turn of this HEIF/HEVC Apple format. Also make sure under Settings->Photos->Optimise iPad Storage is not enabled. That can cause some problems with RAW Files. Pro Tip: If you have an friend or someone with Linux knowledge, let them install you an NextCloud Server. You will never look back once you get in running. Full control over your own data and the feature list of nextcloud with its tons of Addons is almost endless. (It cant cook coffee unfortunately ) cheers, Lutz
  2. I am on iOS 11.3 beta 5 still no problems, no Batterie issues, no nothing. It just works... (For future updates in case hehe, I know its weird but I like to running the betas, since it cleans up so much space each time it updates..that is really the only reason why I am on the beta, since I dont need iCloud Messages, and the new Battery health status is not for iPad, at least I dont have the menu like I have seen on iPhones.) cheers, Lutz
  3. I just tried it and it works but just after opening the same file three times. The first two times the app doesn’t show the picture but Import it. When you use the photos app do you have optimised storage enabled in iCloud? Cheers, Lutz
  4. Hi, are you sure you have RAW Files you work with cause I have an Nikon and File Size L is for jpg not raw. Or do you shoot Raw+Jpg? Update: I just saw that newer models have different Raw Size as well, so that might not be the problem here. cheers, Lutz
  5. Hi Ken, my own Camera has only 12MB Raw Files, but I edit already 45MBs Raws from the D850 for clients, without any problems. What I also have often are super large PSDs like around 800Megabyte with multible layers, also no problem. Just make sure you have no other App open in the Background. One suggestion I would give you is buy the higher capacity iPad Pro with 256 or 512GB, the space will fill up like crazy. cheers, Lutz
  6. Hi Kasundan, make sure the pressure sensitivity is enabled, its not enabled on some brushes by default. The other icon below the pressure sensitivity button is for an transparency effect like watercolor. cheers Lutz
  7. I agree the Apple Adapters are way overpriced and I never buy them. I have a cheap SD Card Reader it works well, but only with the Apple Photos App. The Geekgo Adapater looks very good, but also no delivery to Germany. Since I am searching for a better way to store my files on the go and my iPad has only 64GB I will try this one and report back if interestet: https://www.amazon.de/Philonext-Speicherkartenleser-Kartenleser-Interfaces-Smartphones/dp/B073TZCHYW/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1520322702&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=Geekgo+USB+%26+Lightning+SD+Card+Reader+for+Apple+iPhone I also heard very good things about the Sandisk IXpand drives. Some Apps like LumaFusion has nativ support for this USB Drive. Downside is the price is a little high. cheers, Lutz
  8. Same here, what I do before using Nik is to duplicate the layer. It has the same effect like in Photoshop, just that you have to think to do it before until it becomes a habit cheers, Lutz
  9. Seems like it affects only the windows version, wich I think uses a different raw engine than the iOS and Mac version. here a screenshot from the iPad version of your raw. Cheers, lutz
  10. Hi and welcome, there is no quality loss I would say, its like developing the photo in Lightroom and do fine tuning by sending it to Photoshop. The file stays high quality until you save it out to jpeg for example. Then it gets converted to 8Bit . At least that is what I guess the program does, since when you safe it in the native ap format and go to the project overview you can see that there is a little symbol with "16Bit" on it, wich means high quality. So I would say there is no right way, both are right and you can do what feels more comfortable for you. When you like editing outside the develop persona go for it. That is what I do to. I just do basic adjustments like shadows and highlights (yay new algorithm rocks) there and the rest in Photo Persona with all the layers and bells and whistles. cheers, Lutz
  11. Thanks for sharing the macro Paul, cant wait the day we can record them on the iPad Version. (little future request hidden hehe)
  12. Hi DM1, Ahh now I get what you want to archive, I think the im painting brush is not really meant to do that. Try something like this:
  13. +1 one thing I really do miss. As a web designer, its kinda a pain in the ass without, even I work nowadays more with rgb values.
  14. From the last changelog: Its crucial like DM1 noticed that you have no project open in Affinity Photo. Otherwise you will get an error message. I just imported them by opening the macro in the Apple Files App. cheers, Lutz
  15. I dont know exactly what the problem was. But I used the in-painting brush in one of my last edits very extensive and it worked flawless. No crash, no slow downs. cheers, Lutz
