The majority of my photos are stored in google cloud... in picasa galleries, and google instant upload galleries. I can open a photo from local storage on my phone with no problem, but I cannot open any of the photos from the cloud. The instant upload and picasa snyc are a huge part of google's ecosystem and android's gallery. Other photo editing apps on the market can open all of the photos seemlessly, but photoshop cannot. If I open a photo from instant upload, or a picasa gallery, it does nothing and returns to the main screen of the app. This is a major problem for me. Any solutions or planned fixes?
To clarify, in case this is vague... if I go to the "new project from" screen, then select "photo library", my gallery opens, with my camera folder, facebook folder, instagram folder, instant upload gallerys, picasa galleries, etc... everything is visible. If I choose anything that is local (camera, facebook, instagram, etc), then it opens fine. If I choose anything that is in the cloud (instant upload galleries, picasa galleries), the app goes back to the start and never opens the photo.
Phone is a galaxy nexus running 4.2.2, but i suspect this will be the same across all phones.
A temporary "work around" is to use an app that can import correctly (snapseed, pixlr, etc), and then save the picture to local storage, then go in to PS and open it that way. Thats sort of a pain though because you end up with a copy back on local storage that you don't want.
An easier work around is to install another gallery app like QuickpPic and use that instead of the gallery. It should allow you to load images from any folder.
this is a known issue that started occurring on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and above. We are looking into it.
