There’s no task too big—or too small—for this robust photo editor. If you want to add some cool filters, you can. If you just want to adjust the exposure, add some saturation, and make it ‘gram-worthy, you can do that too. And if you’d rather draw than edit? You’re in luck. Affinity Photo packs support for Apple Pencil and an incredible array of basic and advanced illustration tools. You can create unlimited layers, choose from an unsurprisingly enormous selection of brushes, and even create your own brushes—complete with jitter, spacing, and flow. (Sounds like dancing, right?)

Obviously it doesn’t replace Photoshop for desktop

Go to the Serif website and look at the tutorials for Affinity Photo for iPad. Those tutorials lay out pretty much what this app can do. If you don’t see a tutorial for something you want this app to do, don’t expect this app to be able to do it. The iPad has processing limitations that a desktop computer doesn’t have. For example, the “select sampled color” function doesn’t work very well and some of the filters are shabby and unusable. The selection tools that do work properly are more advanced than other photo-editing apps for iPad. The “refine selection” function works very well for selecting subjects with hair or fur. A lot of the photo-retouching tools are well-designed, like the high-pass filter and the lighting effects. The functions that work poorly seem to depend on processing every pixel in an image, such as the “select sampled color” function, which is disgraceful and should have been omitted.

Full-featured “Photoshop for iPad”, rock solid on iOS 11.1.2 and iPad Pro 10.5

Affinity Photo for iOS really is exactly what Serif claims it to be: a fully functional Photoshop for the iPad. On my iPad Pro 10.5 it is smooth and solid with no significant bugs and close to zero crashes. While there are some specific features of desktop Photoshop I’m wishing for, some of them may be present but still hiding from me in the complexity of a still unfamiliar user interface. This program, at $20, is an astonishing bargain. It opens raw files, Photoshop layered files, and layered files from the desktop Affinity Photo program. Fetching a file from Lightroom Mobile (or Lightroom desktop) is easy; just export to iCloud (or Dropbox) and then open from the “Cloud” source within the Affinity app on the iPad. All the necessary tools required for a layered, non-destructive workflow are nicely implemented. By the way, the 32 tutorial videos built into the app (scroll down on the “Open Files” splash screen) are quite good. I had no idea they were included when I bought the app. The new user can speed ahead through the learning curve simply viewing these tutorials in sequence. Practical pro-level high-resolution image editing and retouching have arrived on the iPad Pro (finally) with Affinity Photo and iOS 11.
