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.

Multi-Touch

Enjoy a full range of fluid Multi-Touch gestures to speed up your workflow and enhance productivity.

Metal optimised

Achieve blazing-fast performance even when editing large files or complex multi-layered compositions.

Apple Pencil support

Sensitive to pressure, tilt and angle, Affinity Photo for iPad harnesses the full power and precision of Apple Pencil.

iOS 11

Fully optimised for iOS 11, Affinity Photo takes full advantage of the new drag and drop and multi-selection functionality.

Capabilities never seen before on iPad

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.

Dedicated retouching tools

Brush directly on screen for an incredibly fluid retouching experience. Apply tools such as dodge, burn, clone, blemish, patch and red eye with even greater precision, using touch control or Apple Pencil. You’ll also find tasks like recolouring, inpainting and selection refinement can be more naturally controlled too.

  • Clone, dodge, burn
  • Inpainting
  • Frequency separation
  • Recolouring
  • Liquify
  • Healing tools

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.

Fully optimised for iOS 11

Thanks to iOS 11’s new Files app you can now drag and drop multiple images straight into Affinity Photo for iPad and start editing. This is tremendously useful when working with HDR merge, image stacking and panoramas and will provide an instant boost to your workflow. And if you ever receive images, or even PSD files, via email, you can now open and edit that file – with all layers intact – by simply dragging it in.

Super accurate selections

Affinity Photo for iPad contains all the standard selection tools including marquee, lasso and magic wand, but what really sets it apart an incredibly advanced selection refinement algorithm. This allows you to make extremely precise selections – even down to individual strands of hair – with ease.

Comprehensive liquify workspace

Push pixels around with your finger and manipulate them like putty, or use brushes like turbulence, pinch, punch and twirl, alongside a real-time mesh warp tool, to creatively reshape, sculpt and deform your images.

Real time effects

Affinity Photo for iPad provides a huge range of high-end filters including lighting, blurs, distortions, tilt-shift, shadows, glows and more. Precisely adjust every aspect of a filter’s properties and see a live preview of your changes as they happen in real-time. Filters can also be applied as live layers, enabling you to edit, erase away, or mask effects after they have been applied.

Realistic brushes

A massive library of over 120 professionally designed brushes including effects, bristles, paint, dry media, inks, markers and more are all available. With complete control over pressure, angle, tilt and velocity you can paint and sketch with incredible precision for super smooth, natural-looking brushwork.
