Professional photo editing on the iPad takes another huge leap forward today, with Affinity Photo freshly updated to make the most of Apple’s brand-new iOS 11.
Reviews around the world have already hailed Affinity Photo as a flagship professional app for the iPad. And with Apple launching their much-anticipated iOS 11 update, you’ll be delighted to know that we’ve already optimised the app for the new operating system.

In particular, iOS 11’s new Files app makes it easier than ever to open an image in Affinity Photo for iPad – simply drag and drop your chosen image, or multiple images, and start editing.
In Affinity Photo for iPad, this puts even more power at your fingertips for creative photo-editing techniques such as HDR merging, image stacking and panoramas, which require multiple images to be selected. And if you’re sending your work to someone else, it’s simple just to drag and drop it into email.
The ability to select and use files easily is a big deal for professional users, and one area where the experience of using Affinity Photo on iPad lagged behind the desktop version due to the operating system capabilities. With iOS 11 it’s now so easy to select multiple images using touch, drag them into Affinity Photo and complete the whole process in a fraction of the time before.
This new drag-and-drop capability streamlines your workflow and frees up more time for editing, but also puts incredible power at your fingertips for creating amazing work which involves merging or stacking multiple files.
Integration with mail is another huge addition. Affinity Photo can read so many different image file formats, so if for example someone emails you a PSD file, you can now open and edit that file – with all layers intact – directly on your iPad. You can even save it back out again as a PSD and drag it straight into an email reply.
The whole experience of bringing files into and out of the iPad app is now much closer to what it is on a desktop, and of course we’re delighted to be among the first apps to fully take advantage of all this great new functionality.
Affinity Photo for iPad is priced at £19.99 / US$19.99 / 21,99€ (subject to regional currency variations) from the newly-redesigned App Store. The iOS 11 update is free to existing customers, via the in-app prompt.
Affinity Photo for iPad is compatible with the iPad Pro 9.7-inch, 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, and optimised for Apple Pencil.
