So I noticed that Snapseed had a bug-fix update after work today, and eagerly installed it.
Did 2.0.1 squash the bug?
Sadly, it doesn’t see the edits either. (This was likely a silly test, as it seems probable that it uses Image Capture to import, but was worth a check anyway.)
Maybe this too was fixed in the update? I hate it when other people do this, but… you’ll have to read on to find out.
So first, I tried with another film photo I had on the phone, a more recent one from my play with the Petzval on film.Interestingly, Snapseed won’t edit a photo directly. This is helpful, to be sure. Click OK and and then click Save. Choose to Save a Copy.
Snapseed saves, or claims to, and…And with a new copy saved, you can get down to business…The tweak options are good: easy to use and powerful. And the filters are fun to play with. I got the image to a good-enough point to try and save it…Before you save it, something in the Phone will ask you a simple question…
Click Modify, and it will claim to save…And it will look like it saved in the Camera Roll too, but when you get it into your computer… Lies.Next, just for giggles, I tried with the built-in camera app:
I had a play-around—the play is fun: believe me, but if I can’t save my work, it’s nigh-on useless to me.
SubhanAllah. The 2.0.1 update did nothing.
I’ve searched around, but haven’t found any other reports of this issue. Is it happening to you too? It’s probable that Google wants to force users to upload to Google Photos or something, but I haven’t found an option to do that yet.
There’s an option to save to a Snapseed folder… I haven’t tried that. I hate apps that force you to save to their own special folder… Hold on. I’ll try that. Say “Bismillah.”
I did find a sorta workaround, but it’s sub-optimal.
Of course, with this method the cropped image comes out to something like 640×850 on the iPhone 5…
So Snapseed is nice and all, but if I can’t save photos to my computer, it’s of absolutely no use to me.
I’ll try it again one day, maybe. Google: if you’re reading this, maybe shoot me an email or leave a comment when you make fix this. Thanks in advance.
