Difficulty with photo app

Such a lively app, thank you.
Only thing missing is it’s integration with photo app. It’s difficult not be able to share it with Snapseed directly and come out of photo open Snapseed, locate photo before we can edit.
Please work on this for your next update. Let me know when you do this.
Love the app 👍

Difficult to open photos

This is a great app but it’s integration with other apps is poor. Google Photos has an “Open with Snapseed” button, but it doesn’t work. Snapseed doesn’t have a share extension so you can open images from other apps in Snapseed. I mostly look at photos in the iOS Photos app. Once I have one I just want to edit it with Snapseed, but I have to go into Snapseed, tap “Open” and the search through my photo stream to find the photo again. With a share extension for opening photos in Snapseed it would be the perfect app, but right now it’s a little frustrating.

Intuitive editing but problems

I enjoy editing with this app, it is intuitive to try creative things that would be clunky on other apps. However since upgrading to an iPhone 12 Pro Max I’ve had endless issues with the app.
Often crashes when editing and freezes the phone for a few seconds. Also, the new RAW editor doesn’t work with Apple ProRAW and doesn’t give you an option to open as a JPG render as it did before automatically.
