Great Photo Editing App just take a bit of patience and use of tutorials to get going

Fantastic photo editing app, yes it takes patience and some time on the tutorials to get going but that’s to be expected on a PROPER photo editing app, this isn’t a “quick fix that will do” app this is a in-depth photo ending app great for combining images as well as editing and so very much more I didn’t even realise till going through the tutorials. I used this to edit my own wedding photos and it was fantastic so much better than using the laptop and a competitors pc based program (okay am old one as new ones for the laptop are far too expensive) results were fantastic and required no additional work when going to the professional wedding album company. Definitely well worth it’s price - just don’t expect to work miracles immediately if you haven’t used this before or are not familiar with proper photo editing as it takes a bit of patience and learning, as you would expect for something as comprehensive and in-depth as this is. And it’s ability to save to Dropbox is fantastic though I do with they had retained the ability to save the affinity photo file to Dropbox instead of directly to the iPad, I loved to be able to save that off the iPad and then bring it back if and when I needed it.
Definitely a great app, I’m still learning, and having a iPad Pro with Apple Pencil make this app even better and more accurate editing etc.

Powerful and Professional

This app is a great professional photo editing app, it contains a lot of features and is just like photoshop but has its own flare to it. The ability to use it on my iPad is great because I can edit my photos on the go and use it at school, also I can transfer my documents and use my PSD files from school on this. I love how the features are serious and no snapchat style features. I can easily select and manipulate different layers and combined with a stylus, (or finger) I can paint digital art. Also the fact I only have to pay £20 once is fantastic. This is a great app for students who are on a budget and don’t want to pay monthly for photoshop, and is great for professional photographers who know how to use every complicated feature. It is great for graphic design however if you are into that field of work I would keep up to date with the news of Affinity Designer (photos sister app) for when that becomes available on iPad. Overall this is a great app and would recommend it to anybody who wants to work with photos. Thanks Serif!

Excellent in almost all respects

I have an IPad Pro 10.5 and bought this programme and an Apple Pencil in order to process my photos on the go when on a trip rather than hundreds when I get back. I sometimes took a MacBook Air but An IPad is so much more convenient and versatile when travelling. This programme is superb with great functionality, good tutorials and very good results. Certainly more functionality than Lightroom 5 that I use on my desktop. The big downside is exporting the finished images, rather than drag and drop to another programme or some form of bulk export each image has to be exported one by one (I have just moved 60+). I don’t use Apple’s Photo programme so to get full fat images I upload to ICloud and then download, copy and paste into a folder. This is so time consuming and a real blight to my workflow, maybe I haven’t figured out a better solution but hopefully this apparently simple task can be made easier as well as enabling me to escape the Apple ecosystem. Or am I just missing something simple??
