Despite the fact when editing a photo/image you wish to keep the original image as well as the edited version, Samsung android 11 gives you no choice, and automatically deletes the original, unlike android 10 whereby you can keep both if you so require. This takes away your choice as to whether you keep the original image or not, in this respect Samsung is taking away your ability to decide as they decide for you -THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE

After editing a photo if you click the 3 dots you can choose save copy.

Thank you for your reply so much appreciated, but I really want to save the original image as well as the edited image. This I could do before I downloaded the software update android 11, I can no longer do this. Deano89, I wish, I wish I had never updated. I will have another go and see if your suggestion will enable me to keep both the original and edited images.

Deano89 or are you Deano89 Navigator (please excuse my ignorance), you are brilliant - 100% brilliant. I do a lot of artwork with Samsung phones as I've found they have a good editing function unlike other phones which my friends have. Thanks for your remedy I can now continue creating my images. Once again THANK YOU

I would like to thank Thomas (Samsung Advisor), for directing me to Samsung Community.

What if you use a different editor?

It's a good thing that I haven't updated my phone to Android version 11 yet. It has always been convenient for me so that I always have the original photo before editing. It is not clear why Android released such an update on Samsung! And working with photos is very important to me because I can't look at my face without editing. I like the way I look on retouch photos, and so I hate myself, unfortunately. But thank you for reminding me again not to switch to the 11 version of Android, friend! Good luck to you. Try to roll back the phone version if you need this feature!
