This thread is for commenting on this announcement. Please do not post bugs or problems that you find when using this version of the software in this thread, instead make a new thread in the Designer Bugs on iPad section and questions about usage go in the iPad Questions forum.

UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (Free for existing customers)

For updates from the iPad Store are done automatically (next time you run after it is available in the store). You need to be logged in as the same user who bought the application. Open iPad store, go to Updates. Once you're there, from the top bar choose Store and on the dropdown click Refresh. It worked for me - both updates appeared instantly. If they dont' theres no point asking us we cannot make it appear quicker. Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world sometimes taking up to 24 hours.

i do not find sépia in adjustement ? 


@Pbernardon/Pascal, use a Recolour adjustment and adjust Saturation (intensity of output colour), Hue (which output colour), and Lightness (for increased fading).

Sepia is not a single preset, sepia formulations varied and the exact effect will depend on how you wish to replicate exposure to light, temperature, contact with covering material, and other factors (for example, if my understanding is correct, well protected sepia photographs tend more to a darker reddish brown hue, less protected photographs tend to be lighter and more yellow).

See the first minute of this example on YouTube using the desktop version  of Affinity Photo (credit: Drippy Cat), but the same effect can be reproduced easily with the iPad version of Affinity Designer.

Thanks for making the UI smaller! That's great!

Yes! Especially now that Affinity Designer runs on the new iPad Mini.
