Affinity Photo for iPad - 1.6.7

Recommended Posts

Thanks Affinity for the free content, brush sets and Macros, that come with Affinity Photo for iPad - 1.6.7.

 

I note that they also work very nicely with AP for Mac.

 

Great work to the Affinity Team once again.

In the desktop version we don't really need the macros. They're just there to compensate for the lack of built-in live filters in the iPad version.

Hi MEB

I opened AP, and click + and then click “import from camera”. AP exits to my iPad Pro, cannot connect to the iPad camera.

ok no problem, I have to turn the camera on in settings for AP.

Hi Patrick Connor 

I was able to look for the "constrain" modifier button.

Could you please show me?

When you select Depth of field filter, tap the little triangle next to bottom menu. Attached photo shows result and how to get back. :)

There are two sets of brushes as well.  I haven't downloaded them before, have you?

No, those are apparently new (and very good they are, too). I was deliberately singling out the macros as something we don’t need in the desktop version. :)

My AP on iPad hasn't that context toolbar in Depth of Field Blur filter (following attached screenshot). It's on 1.6.7.76. Is something wrong?

You need to go ‘Preferences > Interface’ and enable on-screen modifier keys.

Hi,

I have downloaded the up-date and installed the "freebees". They are great. A quick question, I have the desktop version of Photo as well (windows version), Can I use these "freebees on the desktop version as well?

Yes, you can. Please see @p_mac's post  (and my reply) at the top of this page.

The brushes, yes though they are designed to work best with the pressure and tilt of the Apple pen (the light angle for example) 

The macros are just applying live filters, that the desktop version has already (there is no UI to add these live filters in the iPad version and these macros circumvent that), so on the desktop there is no point installing the macros, but technically yes also.

Please add an option for disabling the magnifying glass while using the pen tool. I do comic book inking and rely on the pen tool heavily in my workflow. The magnifying glass blocks the view and prevents me from seeing clearly the path I am modifying. It actually breaks my workflow and I am considering downgrading to the previous Affinity version from my last iCloud backup. Whitch is a shame, considering the amount of improvements in this version.

Unfortunately, because of the way the Pencil input works now, I get lots of inadvertent color picker selections. We really need true desktop modifier keys on either side of the canvas. This would replicate the way most of us work on desktop with a Wacom and keyboard. #option #space #shift #control #command

Hi I am trying to import my images (raw from the supported D750) directly to affinity photo for iPad from an SD card via the Apple dongle on iOS 12, and when I press add from camera in Affinity photo it crashes every time. Is it normal? Bug from beta iOS? SD card reader not supported? iPad (air 2) not powerful enough? Any help is welcome. 

Besides, is it possible to do a batch import? I don’t want my raw files to mess up with my Apple photos library so ideally would keep the raws in affinity photo or iCloud Drive.

Hi Blanca, made another attempt from Files.app and it works. I am on iOS 12.1. Will try again from the SD Card reader next time. Thanks for taking the time to answer.
