Could you please advise, how I can access Affinity during Photo edit sessions

The only way currently available is to create a shortcut with the Shortcuts app, then add that to the share sheet. I have them working for photo and designer.

Can you please explain how to add this shortcut. A screenshot of the shortcut does not explain “how”

Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, @Dockskipper. :)

Take a look here:

What is the location of the file? Have you found out what the current permissions are?

I’m still running iPadOS 14.8, so I probably don’t see the same options as you do.

It is not clear to me how this enables me to edit my Photos in Affinity from my iPad, as I can do from the Photo App on my MacBook.

It should make your shortcut show up on the Share menu within Photos.

So I can use the shortcut to open an image from a folder, but will not open a photo from the photos app. 

Sounds like Privacy on photos, check this area
