Needs to add mask colors

I’ve been using this since the first version. A lot. My only pet peeve is the one grey/white. People have various vision issues.
It would be more useful if the mask color could be varied lighter or darker depending on situation. Even black to redact. Even more useful is adding colors both to highlight visible text, say in yellow, and to the mask for contrast purposes.

I find no other app that picks out text in a photo as easily. Now it’s a matter of what you do with it after selected.

Before the last update, I LOVED this app! I would have given it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ So many times I just wanted to highlight a small amount of text from within a lot of text and this worked perfectly!!!

But now for some reason, every time I try to save what I have done, the app crashes and it doesn't save my work! I am running the latest iOS on my iPhone. I think it may need another update. I expect an app that I pay for to work :(

Developer Response ,

Hi Newb78, ensure you have enabled photo permissions for Snaplight to resolve this error. Go to the Settings app on your device, find "Privacy", then "Photos," scroll to select Snaplight and make sure Read and Write photos permissions are turned on.
