We are pleased to announce a major update for the iPad release of Affinity Photo, version 1.7.0

The changes in Affinity Photo for iPad 1.7.0 over the last Affinity Designer patch 1.6.12 are as follows:

CHANGES SINCE LAST RELEASE

• Large performance increases with further tuning of metal acceleration
• Shortcut modifiers added when keyboard is attached
• More effective noise reduction, hot pixel removal and wide colour space development
• New Stock Panel to search and drag and drop stock photography into your document
• Symmetry (up to 32-way) is now supported - including on-canvas controls and optional mirroring
• On the fly nozzle rotation now available with left and right arrow keys
• New “Procedural texture” and “Voronoi” filter effects
• Live filter effects have been rewritten to improve performance 
• HSL adjustment layer has been rewritten, supporting custom hue ranges, new UI and picker controls
• Many PSD import / export improvements
• Significant improvements to selection refinement
• Alternate futures for document history have been added. If you undo a lot of steps and start on a different path, you can always branch back to your original position
• HEIF images can now be loaded, including loading of any depth map
• Added support for 12bit and 16bit CMYK TIFF files
• New Assets Panel available to store and drag and drop regularly used assets
• 100s of other bug fixes and improvements - too many to list!

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 Photo 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.

Will downloading update 1.7 for AP preserve existing plug-ins, brushes, presets, and the like? Thanks.

I have had trouble making a selection today. When I refined the selection and clicked mask on new layer it crashed the app. This happened several times. I used the beta 1.7 and didn't have this particular problem.
