Affinity Photo Customer Beta ( - GM Seed)

Recommended Posts

Status: GM Seed

Purpose: Features, Improvements, Fixes

Requirements: Purchased Affinity Photo for iPad From App Store

App Store:  Submitted

Download link: Download



We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the final build of Affinity Photo 1.8.4 for iPad.

If this is your first time using a customer beta of an Affinity app, it’s worth noting that the beta will install as a separate app - alongside your store version. They will not interfere with each other at all and you can continue to use the store version for critical work without worry.

This beta is an incremental update to the 1.8.3 version recently released to all customers. We recommend that you use this beta in preference to the store version if you are affected by any of the issues listed below.

Please note that there is no longer a requirement to email photoipadbeta@seriflabs.com to join this beta - anyone can use the beta using the link above, provided you have the App Store version of Photo installed.

Changes Since 1.8.3


- Trackpad support for new Magic Keyboard.
- Supported X3F RAW loading.
- Added ability to only render retina resolution.
- Improved performance on new 6GB devices.
- Custom user font support.

- Improvements to Canon EOS-1D Mk. III metadata import.
- PDF import performance improvements.
- Document save performance improvements.
- Detect edges improved on 32bit documents.
- Placing RAW files now produces Pixel layers, as opposed to Image layers.
- Text performance improvements.
- Provide localised history timestamp text.
- Improved support for .fff RAW files.
- “Save document with history” will now show up as a recorded macro step.
- Mask thumbnails now look more correct.
- Resetting the Voronoi filter now resets to the correct values.
- Improved selective viewing of LAB document channels in the Channels panel.

- Fixed reading of XP metadata under certain conditions.
- Fixed high pass filter when using LAB colour.
- Fixed issue where having Photo installed would stop Luma Fusion importing LUTs. [*]
- Fixed issue where selecting a brush from the brush could select the wrong brush.
- Fixed a crash when refining selection.
- Fixed an issue where the history page could get out of step in Develop.
- Fixed crash when inferring LUT.
- Fixed erroneous blend mode imports for PSD files.
- Fixed a crash in red-eye removal.

- Localisation improvements.
- Help improvements.

[*] This will likely not work until 1.8.4 is released - because you need the retail Photo installed to use the beta and it will continue to steal the LUT associations.
