Professional photo editing on iPad

Developed without compromise, Affinity Photo for iPad is the first full blown, truly professional photo editing tool to make its way onto the Apple tablet. Built from exactly the same back-end as our award-winning desktop version, and fully optimised to harness the full power of the iPad’s hardware and touch capabilities. Affinity Photo for iPad offers an incredibly fast, powerful and immersive experience whether you are at home, in the studio or on the move.

Engineered for iOS, reimagined for touch

We have been fastidious in our approach to developing the iPad version of Affinity Photo. Every tool, panel and control has been completely reimagined to optimise for touch. All rendering, adjustments and filter effects have been fully hardware accelerated. The result is an all-new way to interact with your images, with performance you will find hard to believe.

Capabilities never seen before on iPad

Multi-Touch gestures for enhanced productivity. Metal accelerated to achieve blazing-fast performance even when editing large images. Sensitive to pressure, tilt and angle, Affinity Photo harnesses the full power and precision of Apple Pencil. And full iCloud drive integration allows for seamless file management, storage and sharing.

Complete retouching tools

The joy of brushing directly on screen is never more apparent than when retouching images, and Affinity Photo has all the tools you need. That includes dodge, burn, clone, blemish, patch and red eye tools. But you’ll also find an incredibly accurate inpainting brush along with full frequency separation capability too.

Non-destructive adjustments

Correct and enhance images with Levels, Curves, Black and White, White Balance, HSL, Shadows and Highlights and over a dozen other adjustments that are previewed instantly and can be edited any time. Adjust, readjust, and drag and drop onto any layer, group, mask, or in any place in a stack to control how they’re applied.

Super accurate selections

Accurate selections are critical, whether cutting out objects, creating masks or selectively applying adjustments. Our selection refinement algorithm is one of the most advanced available, making selections—even down to individual strands of hair—easier than ever before.

Comprehensive Liquify Workspace

Push your images around with your finger like putty, or use brushes like turbulence, pinch, punch and twirl in a dedicated liquify persona. Alongside a real-time mesh warp tool, it’s perfect to reshape, sculpt and deform photos.

Real time effects

Affinity Photo comes with a huge range of high-end filters including lighting, blurs, distortions, tilt-shift, shadows, glows and many more. Full control is given over every aspect of a filter’s properties with incredibly precise controls—all the while seeing a real-time live preview of the result. Best of all, filters can be applied as live layers, enabling you to edit, erase away, or mask effects after they have been applied.
