Good morning,

 

after I did some tests with Affinity Photo on my iMac I decided to wait for the new iPad Version. Bought now Affinity Photo for iPad and a new 12,9" iPad Pro :-)

 

  • However, I´m missing the Support to edit Photos from within the Apple Photos App using the Extension function.
  • Also when using Affinity Photos and opening photos from Apples Photos (iCloud) from the App there is only a very small PopUp to open a photo. Hopefully there will be a better / bigger overview in the future. I´m handling all my photos with Apples Photo App (>40k photos) and it will be tricky to find a photo
  • Please integreate the function to "overwrite" an already existing photo with the edited one keeping the possibility to reset changes later on. This was one of the most interesting functions for me using Affinity Photo on my iMac as I don´t need to Keep duplicates (edited and non edited Versions)

Hope I could make clear what I´m missing and looking forward for your comments and hopefully improvements with the next update.

 

Thx., Michael

Good suggestions. I believe your second point has already been addressed and will be included in the beta being released today.

Now there it already has been an improvments of the UI when we open photos from Apple Photo, it could be even better if we also could use the searchfunction and search for pictures in an specific region...

 

Or, why not have the option to use the UI from the app Google Photo? There you can search from indexed file and search for boats, heaven, persons, houses, color, occasions, eastern etc etc...

+1 to all 3 plus they need to open native affinity file from iCloud in affinity instead of import every time. The different is simple. When you open in affinity you work in the same file and then you are not creative another copy unless you don't have internet access. I have the same function in Pixelmator and work wonderfully.

Instead if you import you are creating every time a new file. Nit really useful.

I would also like the first and third features to be incorporated at the earliest. Without them, AP is much less usable. If fact because of the lack of the third feature of overwriting the original photo, I have more or less stopped using AP since I cannot offers to have hundreds of duplicate photos cluttering up my already large library. I do hope these features will be incorporated soon. Thanks.

I've registered just to suggest this.

 

The best thing about photos app is the built-in non destruction. The original is kept and reverting all changes made to a file is just one tap away. I'd love AP to use extension that would open full interface and save all changes I make to iCloud Photos with the option to additionally keep a copy in AP for further changes (keeping the copy in sync with photos app would also be amazing)

 

Also, as iPhone is my camera of choice, this is also my workflow of choice as all my photos are in photos app.
