The development team at Serif has released a new update for their awesome Affinity Photo iPad app in the form of version 1.6.9 which is now available to download an update via the Apple App store. As well as the obligatory performance and ongoing enhancements released by Serif, major new updates on the latest release include massively-expanded support for touch gesture control, refined UI and much improved brush management, a new Export persona, allowing instant export of multiple slices and layers and more.
“Whether it’s quick corrections on the fly, perfecting your work with some delicate retouching, or losing yourself in complex art with hundreds of layers, Affinity Photo for iPad has you covered. Born to work perfectly with the latest iPad and Apple Pencil technology, its power and performance are unmatched in portable photo editing apps”
Managing Director of Affinity Photo developer Serif, Ashley Hewson, says: “Reviewers and customers told us Affinity Photo for iPad was a truly revolutionary product when we launched on-stage during Apple’s WWDC keynote last year. “For the first time it gave photographers, artists, editors and retouchers a full professional mobile workflow with all the features you’d expect, on the go.”
Serif is currently running a flash sale allow you to pick up Affinity Photo for your iPad priced at £13.99, $13.99 or 14,99€ for a limited time.
