Unable to Place photo from Photos. Blank screen.

Recommended Posts

I’m trying to add a photo to any file in Photo on recently purchase 2020 12.9 iPad Pro. When I choose the option of Place  from Photos I just get a blank screen, with a blue return arrow in top left corner. I can copy and paste from Photos and Place from Files.

To resolve I’ve tried Offloading and re-installing app, with a hard restart of iPad in between those actions.

i did open a .afdesign file from a template when I first noticed this.

any knowledge on how to resolve this?

Hey Chatterer,

Have you given the app permission? 

Check Settings > Photo (Affinity icon) > Make sure access for Photos is set to Read and Write. Now reopen Affinity Photos, tap the + and select Import from Photos and your images should display.
