Announcing Affinity Photo as the App of the Year for 2017, a spokesperson for Apple said: “Affinity Photo is a pro grade photo editor and illustration tool that has wowed not just us, but the professional users and enthusiastic amateurs that it serves, too.”

Affinity Photo calls itself the ‘first fully-featured, truly professional photo editing tool’ to arrive on the iPad.

The app contains comprehensive retouching tools, including dodge, burn, clone, blemish, patch and red eye tools. 

Users are also able to correct and enhance images with Levels, Curves, Black and White, White Balance, HSL, Shadows and Highlights. The app allows work across multiple layers, which photo editors can drag and drop between.
