    Select photo issues

    kirikos12 Community Member

      I noticed some changes on how I can select photos from the Camera Roll on my iPhone.

      I usually take pictures with my regular camera and later process them choosing select photo option.

      Before i was able to scroll through my images once selected. Now it opens only the one selected image

      and regadlles of the processing i need to go few steps back to choose another image.

      Is this a change Adobe introduced or something is wrong with the app?

      It was much easier to work on multiple image processing.

      Thanks

          From the behavior you describe, it seems you have disabled location services, either entirely, or at least for Photoshop Express.  To be able to browse all the images in your Camera Roll smoothly using our full screen browser (we call it Review mode), please re-enable Location Services for Photoshop Express in your main device Settings.  This is actually a requirement by iOS, not PSX -- other apps would behave the same way, if they want to access your Camera Roll.  By enabling Location Services, do not worry that Adobe is tracking you somehow -- that's not what we do, or what enabling Loc Services is about.

           

          Kind regards,

          Charlie

            Thank you Charlie. I enabled the location services and it works.

            But it intrigues me wat Loc Services are about?

              iPhone photos are generally captured with location info recorded.  By disabling access to location services for Photoshop Express or other apps, you’re telling iPhone OS you want to restrict access to personal location data, even if it’s a matter of geography metadata recorded in your photos.  One at a time access is OK because it must be intentional.  Unfettered access to your camera roll not allowed because it could be seen as compromising your privacy, though Photoshop Express is not tracking your location data and only wants access to your camera roll for smoother browsing of your device images.  I believe you’ll easily see this with other apps that also access the camera roll.

               

              I looked for more info from Apple to share, and this turned up: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4995

              It doesn’t exactly speak to your question though.  Developer pages from Apple regarding iOS APIs might turn up with a better search, and provide more info for you.

                Thank you. I understand that a little bit more now.
