I appreciate the increased functionality of the second beta, but was dissapointed that the auto funtions were removed.  Why remove functionality?  Yes, the increased functionality is useful to sophisticated users, but even being modestly sophisticated I found the auto levels, contrast, white point convenient and superior to that which Photos was able to do.  Wouldn't it be easy to add them back?

We just didn't think the improvement over the Photos implementation was worth it. We thought that someone taking the time to actually find our extensions are likely to want more control.

If you don't mind me saying, especially if you are developing a DAM, an 'Auto Levels' function would be extremely important to have/retain as often and after doing something like an event where 300+ photos then need uploading to a server and in a hurry, being able to batch process with the option to 'Auto Level' is extremely handy. It exists in Photoshop, so why not in Affinity Photo?

It does exist in Affinity Photo, just not the develop extension for Apple Photos. Apple Photos has it's own Auto features and are much more accessible from their own UI.

I really don't know what Apple were thinking of when they retired both Aperture and iPhoto. But hopefully it was because they realised that they owned too many Pro applications. They'd already purchased Emagic's Logic/Notator, and many were under the impression that Autodesk may be next. 

Anyway, enough of that. Bring on Affinity's answer to Aperture!
