In this talk, we describe the computation of higher-order QED effects relevant in hadronic collisions. We start with a brief discussion about the calculation of mixed QCD-QED one-loop contributions to the Altarelli-Parisi splittings functions. Then, we explain how to extend the DGLAP equations to deal with new parton distributions, emphasizing the consequences of the novel corrections in the determination (and evolution) of the photon distributions. Finally, we present an estimation of the effects in some physical processes studied at the LHC.
