High resolution raw picture editing ipad

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody !


I'm thinkinbg about buying an ipad for picture editing with affinity ! Because of the tactile screen, brushes and stuff seems so easier with a tactile screen !


Question :


As I have a Sony A7rII, I'm wandering : Will the Ipad (last Ipad pro) be able to open and edit the 42mp raw pictures ? Won't it be too slow ? Or should I stay with my computrer for editing those high resolution pictures ?


Thanks a lot !!


Ken !

Hi Ken,


my own Camera has only 12MB Raw Files, but I edit already 45MBs Raws from the D850 for clients, without any problems. What I also have often are super large PSDs like around 800Megabyte with multible layers, also no problem. Just make sure you have no other App open in the Background.


One suggestion I would give you is buy the higher capacity iPad Pro with 256 or 512GB, the space will fill up like crazy.
