JETech "SmartCase" for the 10.5" iPad Pro

Buy the JETech "SmartCase" for only $13.99:

If you have been wanting a full case, similar to the old Apple SmartCase, for your 10.5" iPad Pro, then checkout this JETech case. It offers full front and back scratch protection. Keep those scratches to a minimum!

A few thoughts: It does NOT add any bulk to the iPad, it still feels just as thin and light as it does without the case. While it doesn't offer the most protection for the iPad Pro, it offers enough if you take good care of your iPad. The Sleep/Wake function works perfectly.

How to layer text behind an image in Affinity Photo for iPad

For the last two weeks or so, I have been digging down into Affinity Photo on the iPad. While it is not a Photoshop on the Mac replacement for me, it is the closet thing to Photoshop on the iPad.

In this video below, I am showing you how to add text between and object in an image and the background of the same picture. This is the same workflow I would use in Photoshop on my Mac, more or less, and it works quite nicely on the iPad. Here is how you do it:

The workflow to achieve something like this isn’t much different from what I would do on my Mac in Photoshop, although it is a few more steps. It is a bit more cumbersome to navigate to open the different settings panels, whereas in Photoshop on my Mac, I can arrange workspace and have to panels open and ready for adjustments. But, that doesn’t mean Affinity Photo is any worse to use, it just means it takes some more getting used to doing so.

The new 10.5” iPad Pro is very powerful, and while you can use Affinity Photo on older iPad’s, I think it was built with this new iPad Pro in mind, which means it runs great. I have not had the first crash running Affinity Photo on my new iPad Pro, and if you are looking for a great image editor on the iPad, then I highly recommend you checkout Affinity Photo on the iPad:

Also, if you watched the above demo video, I mentioned an app called Trigraphy, if you are interested in checking that app out, it is free to download in the App Store:
