Export to Camera Roll

Recommended Posts

why oh why can we not export an edited image back to the camera roll like all the other good apps like Snapseed ? My workflow imports my DSLR images into camera roll via ShutterSnitch where I can edit them using say Snapseed. These then export into a Snapseed folder in the camera roll, where they can be easily viewed. I can then upload the Snapseed folder to Dropbox when I want and have a wifi connection.

Cannot do this with Affinity on the iPad !

Saving photos to camera roll is very complicated and slow. You need to click at least five times before you can save one photo. If you want to change the default settings you must do even more selections. I wish there would be a simple way to save multiple files to camera roll in batch mode like in VSCO.

Hi all,

I think there is a Language barrier here. This is similar to Synology's software. In the US we would "export" to the camera Roll. But we would "Share" to external media services such as Drop Box, etc. The Developers have this reversed. And this makes things confusing. I see there is export then save. But Ithink we IOS users are not used to digging down 2 or 3 layers deep to get to functions. Windows users on the other hand are very much used to this way of doing things. They are so used to spending hours learning a new software package. This is not how ISO iOS designed. Take Snapseed for Example: try it and see how easy it is to learn and use. With Snapseed there is no big learning curve!  Snapseed is still a very powerful App but easy to use.  I said in my App Review that this App is Powerful but the Developers just to a desktop designed app and pooped in on the iPad. Which never works well. This app needs to be redesigned from the ground up to take advantage of a Touch first OS.

I just bought this app and when I try to save to the camera roll via share and save image. the app crashes and shuts down. I am using an ipad pro 9.7. The file is only 900x600 pixels and has one layer of text saved as a PNG file. Why doesn't this work???

installed this on my 12.9 ipad pro gen 2
with exact same issue.

This is the only reason I bought the app is to make text on a transparent png background with effects like drop shadow. 
I am very disappointed it seems to not work.

Hi aluminumwelder,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
Affinity Designer and Photo need to have read and write permission to import/export/save from/to Apple Photos. To give Affinity Photo or Designer permission/access to Apple Photos, run the application, click the plus icon in the Welcome Screen and select Import from Photos. Affinity should ask for permission to access your photos. Click OK to give it permission to access your Photos library. You should then be able to import/export/save from/to Apple Photos.

If you drag and drop the Photos app on top of AF Photo or Designer, then on Export screen just drag the JPG button (or other output format) onto the Photos camera roll screen to place a copy there.
