Ipad Question


Recommended Posts

Photo and Designer are available, Publisher not. It was announced, but I don't think there is a release date any time soon.

Both run practically the same routines as the desktop, but the GUI is quite different. And most tutorials you find are for desktop, and will not work on the iPad versions. Serif has a set of iPad tutos, and you find some on YT if you search for them. But it is different, some things are quite hidden, and you need to learn a few gestures with your fingers to work effectively.

Make sure you get an Air with enough memory, since aphoto files can get pretty large, and the apps cache will quickly run into several GB. If you buy the new Air (the one with the A14 and the USB-C-port), get the 256GB model. I like my iPad Pro 10.5" (which is similar in size), but for full editing I move to my Mac. If I would make all edits on the iPad, I would probably get a 12.9" instead. The little screen of the smaller iPads IMHO just fills too fast with too much stuff to make it "happy editing".

P.S. Get yourself a PW-manager. Our age (if you allow me to say this) needs the brain for other things than to remember login data. I use 1PW, which allows to share a part of the PWs (and other private information) with family members, just in case ...

and have all three Affinity Programs. Will it be possible to run these programs on Ipad Air?

No. To be clear, if the programs you have are for the Desktop, the licence will not work on the iPad. A different licence is needed, meaning you have to repurchase the apps. Fortunately the iPad versions are very reasonably priced.

IPad Pro 10.5/512GB   lpadOS 15.3 Apple Pencil (1st gen), Affinity Photo 1.10.5 Affinity Design 1.10.5
