The Photoshop alternative released for Apple Mac in 2015 Affinity Photo Serif has also been available for Windows PCs since 2016 and for iOS 2017+ and iOS 10.3 on the iPad Air 11 / iPad Pro since 2. Affinity Photo for iPad was first introduced at the Apple WWDC 2017 Keynote on June 5, 2017. In this report there is detailed information about it. Now, two weeks later, there is still no manual for Affinity Photo on the iPad, but there are already a few German video tutorials on YouTube.
Affinity Photo 1.5 manual on macOS or Windows
Detailed instructions and step-by-step explanations for the Serif App there are plenty on an Apple Mac, iMac or MacBook or on a Windows PC. You will find three very well rated copies for beginners and those switching from Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom in this post. There I have also put together video tutorials for Affinity Photo from Vimeo (English) and YouTube (German).
Affinity Photo for iPad: German YouTube tutorials still outnumbered
It is understandable that there are not so many help videos and instructions for Affinity Photo in German. The app for iOS 10.3 and the upcoming iOS 11 has only been on the market for two weeks. However, I was able to dig out a few tutorial videos for you to edit images on the Apple iPad. For example, here are two from the “affinitytutorials” channel with initial explanations on how to start the program, how to use it and finger gestures on the display:
iPad tutorial: cropping hair
Instructions: Create Ocean Dream Wallpaper
Use official videos with subtitles
The software for photo editing also has an official YouTube channel with video instructions for the iPad version of Affinity Photo. However, the videos are all in English so far. However, if you press the settings gear (bottom right) in the menu screen, you can change the subtitle language. At the moment, only the automatic English-to-German translation by Google is possible with the Affinity Photo Tutorials for the iPad. But this works quite well. Just try it out with this video:
